2/ This month started out in Thailand! I flew out to Bangkok and traveled with my mom and sister for two weeks.

Although I enjoyed traveling, it is hard to not work for that long... towards the end I started getting antsy - squeezing in a few hours of work every couple days...
3/ I got to Chiang Mai mid month (where I am now) and still struggled a bit to adjust. Wasn't sure what to expect... What's the life of a digital nomad like?

Turns out they just work a lot 😂

Was also lucky to find a few @wip'ers in CM - so that's been nice to have some friends

Awesome! @Wakefy_app's functionality has just been copied! Not by minor players, but by Spotify and Google themselves! This can only mean I might be onto something with Wakefy!
Just for Android devices, though. Hard to make that work on iOS as far as I know (without forcing users to leave their screen on the whole night). Plus, Wakefy was born with a different use case in mind. But still that's a copy – and only 4 months after Wakefy's launch.
Pattern:

If your product's main functionality is another successful product's lacking feature, chances are they'll just copy your whole product.

Solution:

Don't base your products entirely off another successful product.
