Hey, we're Mats, Rohan, and Mark, the creators of Tidbyt.
The original idea for Tidbyt was to make a device that simplified our morning routines. What time is it? What's the weather like? When does the next subway depart? Having to reach for our phones over and over again to answer these questions was a pain.
Our solution? A simple LED display device that cycles through our most important apps, so we could spend less time looking at our phones and more time doing... anything else.
