Searching for small web app ideas.
April 9, 2014 6:55 AM Subscribe
I'm a web developer looking to build a 'micropreneur'-style side
project but am short on tangible ideas -- everyone around me works in
software, and we either roll-our-own or have hundreds of web apps
already targeting us. Do you know of tasks in an industry that could
be automated with software but aren't?

Good suggestions will have the following characteristics:
- Likely to be used by professionals willing to pay money (let's say
$15 - 20/mo) to have a common, unaddressed problem solved.
- Minimal existing solutions in the space -- I can't out-PagerDuty PagerDuty.
- Address a single and specific niche: dog walking software vs. small
business CRM software.
Examples of apps I am considering:
- Online auction listing management for vintage clothing sellers.
- Estate Sale management software
- Dog walking scheduling software
