I can say from experience that ADHD adds several layers of complexity to life on an already chaotic and distracting planet, and while we need all the help we can get, it’s often difficult to find tools that you stay in the habit of using and that actually help.
By building your own, not only will you be able to have a tool built custom for your brain, but the satisfaction of building something may encourage you to keep using and optimizing it!
In this tutorial, we'll be building three helpful tools:
- An SMS task-inbox-and-notetaking app
- A die roll app for moments of indecision
- A timer that texts you when time is up
The theme of the project examples in this post are all about getting things out of your head, and getting yourself out of your own head, two very common challenges for ADHD brains.
