- Abstract Tac Toe
This is something I made based on a reddit post about a surprisingly deep expansion of the classic game Tic Tac Toe. With some practice, you can do OK against the computer -- it took me a bit before I could regularly beat the computer player I added in, so I suppose that's a fun challenge, if you want to give it a shot. Generally fun game to play with others, too.
This is a meditation tool I made so I would get startled by the noise from my timer app. Simple enough -- it just uses flashes in screen brightness -- and it works outdoors too (at least, on my phones it works).
This is an implementation of Mastermind, the classic puzzle game, but I wanted to see what a computer player would look like. It turns out, the minimally competent computer player (one who makes a random move not already disproven) is so good at this game that more advanced strategies have minimal benefit. Can be a bit of a workhorse on phones when the computer plays, but it shouldn't be too bad.
This is the Fast and the Furious style action game I made. There are no points, goals, or ways to lose. It's just a nice drive where you're marginally faster than other cars (which the game prevents you from bumping into, because politeness is important).
- Reverse Digit Span
This is a tool for Reverse Digit Span tests I thought I would make after reading Hive Mind: How Your Nation's IQ Matters So Much More Than Your Own. It persuaded me that this was a good subsample metric for IQ, as it is repeatable and automatically gradable across languages. After an experience abroad eerily similar to Micheal Bluth's experience with Rita, I do like using this as an example of what I do for a living, despite it being a personal project I have made $0 on. Color me cautious, but I truly don't judge people for any reasonable score.
I wanted a very simple checklist style workflow system for my phone. It works for me, but considering how useful I find it, I suspect lots of people want slightly different things in this area. But if you want a click-through style routine reminder system, this might be your jam as well.
- Up To Current
My challenge with naming things is perhaps most profound here. It's a bookmarking system for webfiction. If you have any suggestions for additional domains you'd like me to support out of the box (it has a configurator built in which should work), send me an email (details below). The website has instructions for adding the bookmarket to your browser, so no worries. Doesn't work on mobile, because I have no idea how to get this functionality to work outside an app wraps a browser, and that stinks.
- Video Learner
This automatically loops sections of youtube videos in sequence. Once you've got one part, you continue onto the next one and can loop that. This is a tool I use for language shadowing, mostly, but memorizing a song's lyrics goes easier with this (if you can tolerate the boredom of the approach).
Everything else I made for this site was either a failed joke, a proof/dis-proof of concept, a sort of useful CRUD app that didn't meet it's mark, or just general silliness I could use to comment on things I saw online. If you used any of them, and wanted to see them continue, just email me at email@example.com and I'll see what I can do.
