Hello all!
I'd be down for working on just about anything. The original reddit post caught my attention most because I've have similar issues as OP, getting small projects most of the way done and then getting bored with them and having no real commitment

I'm on for anything as well, I'm very new so I'm open to do the tedious simple stuff nobody wants :smile:

Hey everyone,
I've just published my first app, and looking for a new project to work on. I've been messing around with an basic image downloader app (To learn more of AsyncTasks & Concurrency). Would anyone would like to collaberate by improving the user Interface?

may be a simple app, but with client interface and server side
i'll create repository on github, and we'll commit project

I suppose, that there are 2 types of apps - useful for people and beatiful or
enjoyable to 'poke'. My ideas are :
  • cards with random news (like in facebook - you mark as liked or not liked, and it will suggest better cards for you)
  • retro futurism/cyberpunk style app
  • crypto network for trees guys : im, sharing photos or making theme galleries (hard to realize)
  • something about drones (yea, i just like drones)
  • tutorial for photographs: how to make timelapse, panorama, studio photography (or app to make timelapses)
  • interactive story about any popular groups
  • social network of reddit guys animals (coz i always see lot of dogs on main page)
  • network for musicans, who wanna connect with each other and create rock group or maybe electronic set on soundcloud

The random news cards idea sounds easy enough, what would the topic be though... News, quotes, interesting facts or info?

We can allow user to change topics as on pininterest
also make tab "popular" , and parse posts from facebook
or tab with map linking on any city

The app would be easy enough to make, and create a nice UI. But I think the challenge would be parsing data from whatever site is chosen. Do you have any experience with that?

i think yes, and it's works with facebook API and maps API, which is a good experience too

several months ago I've read a story on HN about woman who have been learning to code by creating one website per day. And she really created like hundreds websites during months of the experiment
You guys can borrow this context and build an app per week. It also fits into startups theory "fail-fast": you build Minimum Viable Product, check if it is interesting and working and if not - move on
lots of experience, lots of fun and there woudn't be an idea without attention paid to
