Trouble finding TP? Try Shelf Bear!
So we've been working on this for ourselves - but I saw comments in the Door Dash thread saying that "I wish there was an app to help find things," so even though we're a day or two out from live launch (plus approval from app stores) I thought I'd go ahead and post this here. I take responsibility for the terrible puns, and Mr. Gyre handles the server bits. I just wanted to be able to wipe my bum and find meats that don't cost an arm and a leg without running all over town or activating the literal phone tree. Maybe some other folks might find it useful, too.

This doesn't cost anything, just a way to share which store has TP (or any other item) in stock in your area.
Role: copy editor, UX design, testing

Looks interesting. I signed up for the release email.

Um...does this mean that people with SmartPhones will generally be able to get to the bread flour before people without them? I mean, even more than they already can?

Congratulations, though - this seems like a very useful app.
