Idle thoughts before I go to bed: a smartphone app that lets you list the names of your PCs, and tells you how long since you have asked that player a question (including, of course, “what do you do?). Tap their name whenever you do to reset the timer. It could either be a count of the minutes, or a more relative counter that ticks up whenever you tap someone else’s name.
If I had a computer capable of making apps for my iPhone (thanks for that, Apple. I’m sure limiting who is allowed to make content for ecosystem was a brilliant idea in the long run [/sarcasm]), I’d do it for myself and try it out, but for now it remains as just a random idea in my head, after noticing how often I tend to take longer than I should to get back to a particular character, especially if they have a particularly quiet player.
Thoughts about the idea? Your own person solutions to the same problem? Am I just crazy and addicted to wanting to use my smartphone for everything?
