Hi Donald, 

Keep up the good work. 

Though there are similar projects out there like Peter described, its
still ok to do another one if you feel they dont meet your requirements.

I have questions to the project that you are doing. 

1: How far is the progress. 
2: What features are you planning in your initial release ?
3: Do yo have the code hosted somewhere, say github for easier
collaboration, i am asking because this interests me and i think its a
good idea, i can put in some hours. 


About your 3rd point of roaming user tokens, it would be achievable if
all the member cafes synced some user data regularly from a central
location (publicly hosted server of some sort)

So considerations have you thought of what you use a datastore for this
app? Mysql , sqllite postgre ?

But all in all good work so far and let me know if i can be of

with kind regards,
