It´s been exactly one week since Håvard texted me at 02.00 in the morning. “67 new users in 40 minutes.” It is the rate of 870 000 per year. Something was up. Five minutes later, he texted again: “We´re cover girls on Lifehacker.com”. Even though we were thrilled, the timing couldn´t have been worse. In the morning, both Jørn, our server master, and me were to have a presentation for the newly elected Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Liv Signe Navarsete. Being five well educated young men, she wanted our input on why we had started our business in a rural area of Norway wich also happened to be her hometown. True story!
Jørn and Håvard stayed up nearly all night to maintain the server, while I tried to sleep. The presentation miraculously went fine, and Yast was boosting all day long. A day to remember!
Anyways, here are some of the Yast reviews from our beta launch:
Makeuseof.com: Yast is a great online tool with an easy sign-up process and no hassle. Anyone who needs an accurate way of keeping track of their hours should use Yast.
Lifehacker.com: If you’re looking for a simple time-tracking tool with visuals that are easy to read at a glance, Yast fits the bill.
My personal favorite. Downloadsquad.com: Yast, on the other hand is painfully, stupidly easy to use.
Crenk.com: “If you need a timer – Yast is your best bet.”
Connecter.ca: Yast – Planifier votre temps! Super!
wwwhatsnew.com:Yast – Un paso más para la gestión perfecta del tiempo
scommerce.com: Yast.com is no different, it’s a time tracking app. What sets it apart is its total simplicity.
poppularfron.com: I really recommend checking out Yast.
Killerstartups.com: The idea is to provide users on the whole with a solution which is employable without having to rack their brains, and in that sense Yast delivers.
Even in France. Descary.com: Yast, un outil Web de gestion du temps simple et gratuit
And Germany. web2null.de: Yast ist ein simpler TimeTracking-Service, den man leicht per Drag&Drop benutzen kann, um Zeiten für Aufgaben zu verwalten.
Needless to say, these reviews have given us a flying start. And in our feedback-forum ideas and informative feedback have given us many new ides for future development. Of course, just launching into beta-phase, we have some bugs, but we are working on it and we have a lot more smooth interface solutions coming up.
Now. Let´s find those investors…
