Software idea


#1

Hello guys!

Those days I was thinking at a new software and I need your opinion if it worth the effort or not. So, I want to create a software used to design apps interfaces and even try them on different devices (like you test a website on Google Chrome on different devices). I know… Adobe just released XD, but I want to bring something new like: a version for tablets, a web version (with some features, more like a ‘try’), a “coding interface” (like CSS), and also FREE, but you can buy some stuff, idk. Now I’m just thinking if it worth all the effort. I have to create a great file and save space, a convertor for PSD and other things like that.

Please, don’t be rude. I want some kind comments. I know it’s very risky, because my efford can be 0, software total useless, underrated etc… But a thing keeps me up: there are some platforms for blogging and other stuff and they have more in common, so why not?

Thankss!

Hi Andrew!

If you ask me, it really depends on what youve got so far. You cant expect people to get excited by someone just starting off, who wants to compete with Adobe ?:slight_smile:

There is a fine example in the music world now - that guy who was initially creating Sibelius, and recently got the funds, time, and his old team, to create a new notation program by Steinberg. So, just think of all those resources, and experience, and all, and still beyond all the hype, its pretty clear that this new soft can`t satisfy all expectation, and achieve all goals on version 1.0

So my advice, think small, act step by step, and you`ll get there.

Best wishes!

Thanks a lot for your opinion.

Well, Adobe is a good-based company and you can’t really compete with them. But I knew that they competed with somebody with their InDesign. Finally, they reached to make their software better than competitor’s and a few years later the competitor came with a new version and took Invision with their software. I forgot their name… I’m still thinking about it and if it worth. I took a view after XD and honestly, I expected more. They have great features, but effects and things like that kills me honestly. I was like “OMG ADOBE FINALLY” then “Srsly… you could make it easier and INTUITIVE”.

Anyway, thanks a lot! I appreciate your opinion :smiley:
