Nearly perfect.

I use this app for our monthly book club choice. The members of our little group each choose a book, which I list in the Piles, and then I choose three finalists. It’s nearly perfect except for one thing: it would be nice if we could see the entire list at one time. As of now, I can only see five items. If I could see the entire list, I could screen shot it for the other members. Other than this little thing, this app is perfect for our nerdy needs. 🤓

I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying Hat Picker! I really appreciate your feedback. I’ll be sure to include the ability to see more options at a time in the next update! Perhaps some ability to share Piles as well? ,

Great for those with decision fatigue!

This app really helps me out with decision fatigue. Sometimes there are simple too many choices, like a long menu at a restaurant or too many clothes in your closet. Steve Jobs solved the problem by only wearing expensive black turtlenecks, but this app will save you so much money by helping you pick what you already own! I definitely recommend this for anyone suffering from decision fatigue.

Helps you decide!

This app is an adorable way to make decisions as a group. Put a bunch of options (or names or numbers for group games!) in the hat and it selects one for you. Simple but genius for those moments you wish for some paper or a quick decision.
