Why I built Druck

One night over the summer the idea came to me to build Druck. Sure, the idea probably was building inside for a few years, but the breakthrough happened while sitting on my couch watching a baseball game.

I’ve been tracking things about myself for years. It started with steps and weight and then expanded into things I eat and drink and eventually grew to cover activities like going to the beach or playing tennis.

While sitting on the couch, I was thinking about all of the places I track things - Google Sheets, Apple Health, Runkeeper, and Notes App. Things were kind of all over the place and it was getting hard to keep track (pun intended!). A single place to keep all of this stuff would make it much easier for me to not only enter data but also view it all. And from this, the idea of Druck was born.

I’m writing this 3 months later. I’ve just released Druck to the App Store. I’ve been using it every day and it has either replaced or augmented all of the previous places I used to track things. There’s a lot more I want to do, but the core is in place and it works quite well. A huge thank you to all of the people who have beta tested this along the way. Your feedback has been invaluable!

This is only the beginning for Druck. I believe it has the capacity to truly help people make positive changes in their lives. I’m excited to keep building and see where this goes.
