Hello, my name is Bjorn

What are you working on these days?

Since YouTube has restricted access to their API and it was useless to continue working on #YTCount, I started CardMapr. CardMapr will be the best tool to find credit card accepted locations nearby. In the Netherlands it’s very hard to find these locations. I have an American Express credit card and I prefer to use it everywhere because it allows me to save for free flights.

What can the WIP community help you with right now?

I remember the days (2018) when I was working on YTCount while I was in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. I opened WIP every day to see what everyone was doing. This gave me a huge energy boost. It's great to see what everyone is working on.

What can you help others with?

Like Damon, I am a self-taught designer, full-stack developer and marketer. If you want to hear my story or need any help, feel free to send me a message.

Something else you want to share?

Hopefully 2021 will be the year that I can quit my 9-5 part-time job. I will close my WIP Intro with some screenshots of the new CardMapr app that I have been working on in the last few months.

Hey, really nice intro @Bjornftw 👋

Would love to hear your story! Looks like you are a globe trotter, you have a job that requires some travel?

Love the design of your app! But Google Maps don't make the same thing? 🤔 Really curious about your competitors!

In 2018 I did freelance design/web stuff and YTCount was my job.

The credit card feature in Google Maps is boring, so I decide to make it my own haha.

App looks great! I think 2021 will be a better year for everyone; hopefully you hit that milestone 💪

The app looks great indeed! Is it a common problem for people wanting to pay with credit card only? I find myself paying with Apple Pay in most places now. At least in the Netherlands, and the other countries that support it.

Thank you @marc. Yes, I started this adventure with one of my own problems: "Where can I pay with my American Express". Many other users in the Netherlands also have this problem. The backend/app is future-proof, so we can expand to other countries.
