List of apps to build as you are learning?


One of the best ways to keep learning after mastering the basics is to actually start building small apps that get progressively more complex and larger as your skills grow. Wouldn’t it be great if we could create that list? Let us do just that here! Just post a short blurb for an app someone should build.

I will figure out a way to categorize them as topics roll in - probably as easy/medium/hard. Not sure yet haha.

An app that register your mood connected to the weather api.
