Slidepad is a side project created by Potter Dai.
After working as an independent game developer for several years, Potter decided to take a break and try something new. Therefore, he picked up Swift and wrote this first MacOS app to solve his own pain point -- it's hard to quickly find the exact app when you have multiple apps open on the Dock. As he introduced on ProductHunt:
I made Slidepad simply because I was very fascinated by the idea of Station, but found it too heavy for me to use it every day. In the end, all I need is a simple tool that allows me to glance at it and do a quick action, like taking down a to-do or sending a quick message.
Spending several weeks on this little app, Potter shared it with his friends and received positive feedback. He then submitted it to /r/macapps on Reddit: Slidepad - Bring iPad slide over window to your MacOS
and gained more feedback.
Soon after, this little tool was submitted to ProductHunt by Ethen, and won #1 Product of the Day June 30, 2019.
We are so excited with so many comments, and we are committed to make this little tool even better.
