Hi all,

My first post here..

I'd be grateful if you could offer any feedback you might have on my
first App Engine app. I've never written Python before so it's been
interesting learning it.

Thanks!

It's impossible for anyone to browse your localhost url.

Oh dear - how very embarrassing! My apologies!!! That would be a copy/
paste error....

Cool app Bonstio - my quick suggestion would be to re-organize the
page so that the image is at the top rather than below your
explanatory paragraph. I have to scroll down to see it on my small
laptop screen (1280x800).

Thanks, Ben. Some useful feedback too. I'm rewriting the front end now
and will no doubt be adding features too :)

Thanks again!

Agreed :-) This was made in a hackathon, a kind of proof of concept.
The JS and CSS are haphazard to say the least.

The rework is underway. I'll post back when it's done - which will be
soon!

I've deployed a new version which I think is much improved. No real no
functionality but a better layout accompanied by AJAX loads instead of
reloading the whole page.

Thanks for your comments so far.
