Hey there! First time poster here sharing an idea I’ll be working on in the close future for my project kit
The main feature request I got is Notifications
I decided to build them in an unconventional hacky way.
Here’s my idea:
- In the settings you have an opt-in notifications option, if toggled it asks you an email or phone number and charges you 10$ one time fee
- Whenever you open the app a public .json file with the next 3 months of dates is generated with true and false values for each date
- A robot of mine grabs that .json every day at a certain hour depending on your timezone, if it reads a “true” value for that date you get an email/message on WhatsApp saying “you have to contact someone, visit kit.st to see who it is”
If the three months expire without you opening the app notifications are stopped and your personal data (email/phone number) is deleted.
This would be a temporary solution as I hope that when I figure out how to make a mobile app with blockstack the phone should enable background processes and notifications.
Any feedback on this? Is it a dumb idea?
