Let me tell you a story before I talk about Jume. Around 3 years ago, one of my friends came to me saying ‘I’ve got some great opportunity for you to make some great money’ and took me to some conference. Turns out it’s one of those ‘Network Marketing‘ (Amway, Modicare…etc) company he was talking about!! One thing I saw in that conference was, they were making each individual to go on stage and shout out loudly what is the kind of target they are going to achieve. There will be that person’s friends, relatives watching him when he does that! This creates a psychological effect on him to make sure he does that to protect his ego. That person will definitely try hard to do what he had committed in front of all.
When you keep tasks just to yourself, you will probably keep on postponing it for one or the reasons. But, when you tell it out loudly in front of people or committed to it in front of public, it is about your credibility and ego which you need to protect.
Jume is built on GTD Principle with very intuitive interface. Some of the features of Jume are:
- Allows users to make a todo list, ability to make a task private
- Follow friends tasks and help them complete tasks
- Seek help from everyone to finish your task
- Like/Comment on tasks
- Suggest a task to friend
Jume brings your tasks social visibility and makes it easy to get things done. For every action on Jume, like creating tasks for yourself, helping others, suggesting tasks will earn you points and badges like ‘Helper’ etc. All these points and badges will be shown on your profile, so it adds credibility to your profile. Though its still in beta, I hardly found any glitch in the application.
