Announcing Once Living

May 30, 2016

Here’s a small secret I’ve just recently started to tell people about. I’ve been working on a new project this year. It’s a new indie software company I’m starting, called Once Living.

The first product I’m releasing is Tab Workroom, an iOS and OS X app for guitar players to collect tabs and chords. Although Once Living is new, Tab Workroom isn’t. It’s been an occasional side project for almost four years now. I play guitar, not in a serious way, but enough that I have pretty nice collection of tabs that I love playing. I built Tab Workroom to be the best possible way to organize and practice my collection of songs.

Building an app (even a small one) is never easy, but it’s been a lot of fun watching Tab Workroom come together. The folks over at The Iconfactory did a fantastic job on the app icon, and I love seeing it on my homescreen. The future is bright too. I have a lot planned even after the initial iOS release!

Tab Workroom is in private beta and will be available in the App Store soon. If you’re interested in learning more about the launch, sign up for the mailing list and follow @OnceLivingApps on Twitter. I’m excited to show you what I’ve been working on!
