    Well, t wil not do the actual carrying, but it might help you decide who should do it.

    My first app is about making decisions, sometimes you need help with them.

    - Who should mow the lawn?
    - Who get to use the car?
    - Who should pay for the pizza?
    - Who is going to get that last piece of cake?
    - What shall we have for dinner?

    Short Straw will help you decide and you will find it here:
    https://itunes.apple.com/app/id86764...mUvbUpU2251267

    Did I mention it is for free? No, well it is. I am just doing it for fun. Sure, if I would get a pile of money from the very nonintrusive ads users in some countries will see, then I would not complain. But I will not quit my day job yet...

    Thanks for your time! Enjoy!

    Thank you all for the welcome. And, thank you for suggestions on how to improve the app. Some are already implemented in the 1.1.0 version I released a couple of days ago. And some might come in future versions.

    The new 'Quick Draw' make life easier when you want to do just that, a quick draw.

    If you have not already done so, check out the app here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id86764...mUvbUpU2258899

    Short straw - No one want to carry out the garbage? Let my app help you.-macrumors.png

    And, finally, a real Short Straw draw. What else would one expect from an app named Short Straw?

    You can find it here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id86764...mUvbUpU2282054

    Did I mention it is for free? No, well, it is... :-)

    Hi All!

    I have had quite a lot of feedback and have with help of that changed the main interface to look better, easier to understand and so on. On top of this you wanted an even quicker and easier way to make a draw. With the new 'Pure Straw' you can start drawing within a couple of seconds.

    The app is still for free, so no harm downloading and testing it out.

    Enjoy!

    Hi!

    The latest version just released now has some statistics, not much but a start. Beside that there is not much new unless you speak Swedish, you know, like the Swedish chef... :-) I let Swedish be the first non-English version of Short Straw, more languages to come.

    Anyway, it is stlll for free. To get it, use the link in previous posts.

    Do you prefer Italian? If so version 1.6.0 will be the one you want. Short Straw has been translated.

    Beside that there are some new pieces of functionality, like posting on Twitter and Facebook etc.

    Still for free, so please try it out: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id867645748?mt=8

    Hi All!

    Thanks for using my app and also coming with suggestions. I have now released version 2.0.0 and hopefully you will notice no difference at all. Well, that is if you are using an iPhone and are not speaking Mexican. The two major changes justifying a 2.0.0 label on the app is that it now has a special layout on an iPad and the introduction of Mexican Spanish.

    You still find it here:
    https://itunes.apple.com/app/id867645748?mt=8

    Enjoy!
