Users should utilize to accomplish daily goals and more meaningful endeavors over a lifetime, the founders say. Unbucket is here to track your intentions. It's great for the small lists, such as keeping track of exotic foods you want to eat on a one-week tropical getaway, and bigger lists like items you want in accomplish while in your 20s.
Unbucket co-founders Elliot Darvick and Brian Berman believe people are hugely benefiting from what technology has to offer. Darvick calls Unbucket their "contribution."
The platform was created as a Mother's Day present last year. The Los Angeles-based team wants to make the web more intimate with Unbucket.
"I gave my mom a list of things we could do in our respective cities together," Darvick tells Mashable. "We don't see each other that much. It was a stream of experiences that would bring us closer. It really kind of planted in my mind that shared intention is just a very beautiful thing."
Unbucket helps friends and family do things together. Lists are meant to be built with others. The web platform is great for productivity, but also for bringing people together.
"I really wanted to create something that would, not just connect people, but actually bring people closer and that was the genesis of Unbucket," Darvick says. "It really evolved into this way of planning and documenting things to do with those you care about most."
With shared lists, users are more conscious of completing tasks. Lists can be a simple way of organizing one's plans or a way of documenting the things you care about the most.
Popular lists include reading lists, collection of neighborhood restaurants and vacation to-dos. Lists can be private or public, which is great for secret party planning.
Development for the web platform began a year ago. Currently, it's available in a private beta. The first 500 Mashable readers can use the invitation code "Mashable" to access the tool.
Inviting friends is easy. Users can sign in with a Facebook account, create a list and invite others to contribute bullet points and commentary. A user's lists and progress are available in a real-time stream.
"We really want to bring people closer to those they care about most," Darvick says. "Long term, we want to put people's intentions to work for them. How do we find ways to connect people's true intentions with business that can help them fulfill that intention."
