  1. Include the goal description, entry units & fine print in the mobile app

    Please make the units and fine-print for each goal easily viewable from the goal entry page.

    I primarily use Beeminder via Android Mobile App. I've established some very specific rules for myself for many of my goals in the fine print. Unfortunately I can't read the fine print for my goals on the Android app, so I sometimes have to guess as to whether or not something qualifies.

    For example, I have a goal that requires I complete two pomodoros per per week on a specific project - but because I want to encourage myself to only work on it…

  2. show +value in the android widget instead of day count for red / yellow / blue goals

    So in this image http://imgur.com/Gr6TUqm instead of
    ce 1d
    I'd see
    ce +0.87

    My use case: I already know how many days left I have (because of the color), what I don't know is how much I need to do (which is the thing I want to be able to pick up at a glance).

    Like for one particular goal, I have it set to 8/week, so the one day a week where I have to do it twice tends to come as a bit of a surprise. And there's a big difference between having to run half a mile…

  3. sell Prepaid Cards

    I suggest you sell Prepaid Cards so people with no credit card can have a way to pay you through Pay-pal and cash.

  4. Add widget code to handle cases where iframes don't work.

    wordpress.com blogs can't have iframes and I imagine that isn't the only place on the web. Would be nice to have the code provided that does basically <a href="link to graph"><img src="link to graph image"></a></img> (which is what I did for my blog post: http://blog.wraithan.net/2015/01/13/beeminding-zenircbot-3-0/ )

    Even better would be if the url took parameters to tell it the size of graph to make (with obvious limits) so I can make a widget that fits nicely in a side bar of any width. Or make them a bit smaller to have two side by side in a post without making…

  5. Add beeminder as a trigger in zapier integration

    Currently zapier integration allows me to feed a goal with data from other service. However, I would like to use beeminder as a trigger for something else. Possible uses: I keep a diary with beeminder and when I log sometihing new in my "daily goal" I wouldl like to let idonethis now, or update a database with a value, etc. Also, another use of this is to get a productivity buddy: when my buddy inputs new data to beeminder, I can get instantly notified so I can check in and actually see if he is lying or weasling.

  6. Make the OAuth2 tokens non-expiring

    Currently, even if the user doesn't revoke an application (I know, because it's my app and I didn't revoke me!) every so often (months probably) the OAuth2 access token stops working. Now, given the OAuth2 spec, access tokens are generally meant to have a finite lifespan, but that's why we've usually got a refresh token, which can then be used to generate new access tokens, but the OAuth2 for Beeminder doesn't seem to supply those...

    I'd really like apps to just keep working once a user authorises them, unless they explicitly remove them. Having tokens just *die* with no user…

  7. Attach sounds to goals (android or IOS)

    Attach sound files to goals that play as reminders when you are close to derailment.

  9. TagTime - Boolean operators for linking

    When linking to goals, it could be useful to have an "AND" operator for choosing when to send a ping to a goal.

  10. Android App - Option to leave screen on when the timer is running

    Have an option to leave the screen on if the timer is on. Consider making this dependent on being plugged into power.

  11. Accept different regional settings

    Most applications I use accept European regional settings, but Beeminder does not. It would be nice to be able to use the comma as a decimal separator instead of the dot.

  12. Allow for write-protected comments or other arbitrary data

    1)Having write-protected comments would allow for a more robust hackery, such as an improved Must-Do list.

    2)Being allowed to attach arbitrary data to a goal would allow for even more interesting hackery.

  13. change Duolingo reminders

    I was on Duolingo this morning (at about 8:30 EST). Duolingo updated Beeminder automatically at 9:31 (not sure time zone). At 9:40am EST I get a reminder email to go to Duolingo, which tells me in the body of the message that I already hit my target today. Could the reminders only send out if data hasn't already happened, especially for the automatic trackers like Duolingo? I like the reminder, but a reminder so soon after hitting target is just junk mail.

  14. Get Rescue Time to release sub category level data

    It is vital, in order to track a goal that is worked on through different mediums/platforms, to have the transparency at a sub-category level within the fixed categories built in Rescue time.
    I feel it is within your interest to have this in Beeminder.
    I'm currently struggling to set a pledge on my abs goal, simply because I use 2 apps to set my daily trainings.
    Rescue Time and Beeminder are the perfect combination! Really!!! I don't even want to think of the poor alternative of manual input!

    Hope you can make it happen!

  16. Romance me a bit

    You've got "Add a credit card" up there. Yeah good. GOOD FOR YOU! As a business you've totally forgotten WIIFM (what's in it for me). I will probably NEVER give you a credit card, because... I sense you care about your interests before mine. Try to wine and dine me before you try to fuck me.

  17. Use 'Calories' (capital 'C') for RunKeeper goals

    1000 calories = 1 kcal = 1 Calorie. Maybe not the world's best convention, but convention nonetheless. Uppercase Calories are what nutrition labels and exercise apps refer to.

  18. Allow immediate archiving/deleting if you have a week of safety buffer

    If I'm deleting a goal and I have a week of safety buffer, I should be able to delete it immediately. I wouldn't have to enter anything for the next week anyway without derailing, so it's just taking up space and irritating me without forcing me to do anything for another week.

  19. Sort Datapoints by their Comment

    I would like to be able to sort datapoints based on the comment on them. For example, I have a goal for music playing, but I play multiple instruments, so being able to see how much time I have spent on each instrument based on the comment would be great.
