A little competition

Chilli X have just submitted our latest app, Done, to the App Store. 

Done is a great little To Do list with some unique features but we know that there’s a danger that even a beautifully designed list can look pretty boring when it’s full of mundane, everyday tasks – Call John, Put the cat out, Do the shopping…

We’ve had a go at writing some more interesting lists but we’re app developers not comedians – have a look:

 

Do us a caption

Done - The To Do list for the rest of us

We’re sure some of you can do much better than that so post your ideas. We’ll use the best submissions in our promotional materials and give away some promo copies as well. So get thinking and we’ll announce the winners in early January.

ps. keep them clean(ish) and don’t say nasty things about anybody :)

  24. Fabio Bracht Says:

    I loved KJP task list! If I were you, he would’ve already won. :P

    In fact, if I were you, this contest would not exist at all, because, frankly, the 007 task list you guys came up is more than enough funny. =)

    Well, here’s my entry anyway:

    – Go to Peach’s for cake
    – Practice charming italian accent
    – Clean up Luigi’s mess
    – Scrap Goomba remainings from shoes
    – Buy aspirin for block-breaking induced headache
    – Change overalls (wash this one)

    (If Goomba is not and okay word due to copyrights, you can change to “turtles”. It’s not as funny, but will do the trick.)

    Here’s another:

    – Practice pencil trick
    – Buy more make-up
    – Plan the boats scheme
    – “Ha ha Ha aH HA ah”
    – Come up with a different story about how I got my scars
    – Visit Harvey in the hospital
    – Call my tailor for a new purple suit
    – Crash Batman’s party

    Hope you like!
