[reko.day] Mobile App Updates!

Happy Friday!

The other day, I was catching up with a friend who mentioned they live in one of the biggest areas for growing tomatoes. He mentioned how during the season, there would be red splotches all over the road from the little tomatoes falling out of trucks and getting run over.

I asked him how he could buy those tomatoes they're growing in your town?

Roadside stalls or farmer's markets were the answer.

The conversation left me feeling pretty good in that it continued to confirm that it's actually not easy to get local food, even if it's falling off the trucks in abundance!

In terms of developing the reko.day app, I've made a bit of progress, and I need your help.

There are some key areas that I'm noodling on that I think you could help me solve.

  • When you can't make it to the scheduled reko (Pickup), what should we do?
  • How should we report and handle folks who try to scam and commit fraud?
  • What about refunds?
  • If you help invite people to reko.day what kind of reward should you get?
  • If you create a reko (Pickup time and location) that is used, what kind of reward should you get?

These are all problems that are on my mind as I continue to build out the mobile app. If you have ideas I'd love to hear them.

Now, on to the more exciting part: The video!
