Well, this is going to be interesting for me, but I am nervous... Nevertheless, here goes anyway, will try to make a short post…
ABOUT ME: Fountain pen collector. Small collection with about 100 pens, nothing special. Love writing, hate reading (my text). Love italic and stub nibs. Fred’s “The italic way to beautiful handwriting” is my therapy. Trying to grind nibs.
ABOUT THE PROBLEM: For a long time now, I am looking for some application to keep a pen inventory. Must be mobile phone app, not complicated, just to give me idea what to take for my next pen rotation and to keep track about my pens. Can’t find any.
ABOUT THE SOLUTION: Pick up my favorite computer keyboard, turn the computer on, sit down and make application.
ABOUT THE RESULTS: Well, here I need your help: any feedback would be greatly appreciated: criticism or positive. Any ideas for new app features?
You can find app here (iOS):
and here (Android):
There are three mandatory fields for pen data: manufacturer, model and filling system. Everything else is up to you.
Please note: This is the very first version, here is a lot of room for improvement: user interface, data about ink, repairs … But first: let us see reactions and does anybody need this app. As long as there are active users, I will develop new versions.
Disclaimer 1: I am the author of “My Fountain Pens” application.
Disclaimer 2: Application is free of charge, with ads.
Thank you very much for your time.
Kind regards, Anes
