Do you build apps for your own use?

Postby milesstone » Tue Jan 18, 2022 9:27 pm

Just like a woodworker spends a lot of time making tools of the trade - jigs, miters, brackets, and so on - so I have always found as a software developer that you often build tools for your own use. I'm a Linux developer and also build tools or apps for my own work and convenience. I'm thinking of learning a bit about mobile app development like this gb whatsapp, but I haven't seen much talk about building apps for your own use this way. Is it a normal practice? What sort of apps have you made just for yourself?

of course you can develop applications for you own use. :)

I once recreated an old snake game for my personal use.
