It'll be interesting to see what happens post-pandemic, when things open up again and people are itching to travel and discover outside the corner of their 4 walls. I guess that's why they're rushing to grow super fast before they loose momentum of stickiness and habit. Also a lot of audio chat rooms before and coming our way b/c of success that CH has exhibited during the last 10+ months. But it's starting to get some negative press due to lack of privacy and the Agora integration that Jason Calacanis recently tweeted this weekend (with possible data leaks in China). I can't find a privacy or terms of service for CH, kind of taking their sweet time to get to a certain size before addressing privacy issues/concerns). Despo seem interesting as a genZ Insta (useful when that generation travels again).

Hey Brainsprays hope you're doing well! I just want to congratulate you for getting to Pioneer level . Your positivity, insights, & feedback to others have always been "on-point" since I joined Pioneer. I've been just concentrating on my current active users and re-iterating to make TAPP on-boarding and engagement seamless -- so I haven't been able to participate here. Also attending Craig ZIngerline's courses from Launch University -- to learn more about growth and all among other things. Again, congrats!!

Welcome back! Feedback is the strength here -- I'm sure you can get it elsewhere, but I find value once you've worked out most of the kinks. I held back signing on to Pioneer until I have something really to show -- but its also a good place to see what others think about your initial idea -- so I hope you'll find some nuggets from feedback. Some founders like to build publicly and others in stealth. The 3 of us are just scrappy iterating for PMF and getting great feedback along the way and paying it back to others.

Also, I've always taken a friend's advise, "Do you, Be you, and just Show Up and try your best" don't feel pressure about exceeding expectations -- just keep building a kick ass product that delights your customers (winning your actual customers matter most). Again the feedback here has been amazing as a solo founder trying my best during a covid-environment to build what my team and I love. Keep up the good work @Adriankrebs. And thank you for the on-point advise @brainsprays.com (you've helped TAPP become our better-selves).

Honest feedback has been great from Pioneer community so far. Just need to keep iterating and listening to everyone's feedback here and most importantly the customers that we serve :) I haven't been here as long as others, but I find great value in just keeping track and asking questions and feedback. I've learned from many of you and thank you for encouragement and feedback -- I love giving back to newbies and founders who seek real feedback and suggestions -- look here as a community. The tournament is just a neat way to gamefy what I do weekly anyways iterate, improve, streamline and track metrics -- and if anyone will find TAPP useful willl be an added delight to me and my team.

I've been rejected 2 or 3 times too. I'm just building away and leaning on my users to tell me where my product stands. Yes, I agree with you about the feedback. Feedback would be great to have. Good luck on building and refining your product or project everyone, keep your eye on the ball (what your users tell you thru data and conversations).

They only allow invites if we were Facebook friends and maybe LinkedIn (only a guess on LinkedIN). I deleted my FB account 2 years ago -- I'm not sure how they're pulling contacts unless its also from my device

It was interesting to hear from Elon, just having him on broke all attendance records on CH for sure.

Hi Daniel & Team! We'd love feedback on our current landing page, https://www.tapplists.com and/or do we have the right KPIs at our stage -- we soft launched our app to friends & family on the Apple Appstore on 1/13/21. THANK YOU. With Gratitude, John King @TAPP
