I bought a uke earlier this year and looked for a chord app. They all suffered from similar issues. Hard to use, lacking iOS esthetic, etc.

So I built an app.

It doesn’t have the most features, but it’s beautiful and easy to use.

oooh this is the best analogy I've seen yet to ... it's TRUE, if I'm at a pool and someone yells "Stop running" we don't go, HEY not all of us are running, we usually look up and go, "what a flopcanoe, running at the pool"

Here's an example using the NZOSS' NextCloud instance cloud.nzoss.nz/apps/polls/poll (sponsored hosting by CatalystNZ !)

The other day on , a couple of panelists got into a detailed discussion about education policy, and Katherine Ryan cut them off, telling them they were getting distracted from "politics". This sums up exactly what's going wrong with political reporting in NZ, it's become about reporting on politicians, not reporting on *policy*. What used to be sneered as by serious newsrooms as "tabloid" scandal-mongering is now all the political news we get on mainstream channels. much?
