Well known developer, Paul Campbell, working with Brian Flanagan have launched Ketchup
As per release notes from Paul
Ketchup is a web app for storing meeting notes.
It’s designed to be easy to use. We’ve purposely only designed the simplest features, from the outset. Over the next couple of months, the plan is to listen closely to feedback and shape the product into a powerful, useful and valuable tool.
In terms of philosophy, the app is designed around three principles:
“Do little, insanely well.”
Pay close attention to visual design and details.
“Not Saving Changes” … every detail is saved once it’s created or changed.
Happy New Year to everyone
