After WFH started, I started using my TV as a speaker, but I was dissatisfied with Apple's pretty but non-informational screensaver.
Splashpage was built as an alternative to the Apple screensaver — also gorgeous but now helpful. When you look up, you'll see the temperature outside, and the time + date in your current location.
I had the idea, designed it, put together the tech stack, and after a week Victor had a working prototype for me to personally use. After realizing that we should make it public, we launched on Airport to test demand. Over 50 people used the beta organically. We finally launched publicly in the App Store on Jan 25, Splashpage has been downloaded over 200 times since then, completely organically, and has been in non-stop use since February.
Super exciting things to come, Splashpage V2 is going to be awesome.
