Frequently asked questions
To learn how to use Finn, just talk to him or look through our simple help guide. Still have questions? Send us an email.
- How do I use Finn?
- Finn is simple. There's only a few commands needed to create lists, start votes, and pick randomly. If you already installed Finn, ask him to help me out. Otherwise, take a look at our tutorial.
- How much does it cost?
- Finn is free to use for now and will always have a generous free tier. I built Finn on AWS, so each month there's some overhead depending on usage. There's a couple usage limits around list size since I'm paying out of pocket for now.
- How did you build Finn?
- Finn is pretty simple. It's a severless app running on AWS Lambda and your data is stored in RDS. I've been meaning to open-source the app code on GitHub, but I have not had the time. The website code is on Github, it's a static site built with NextJS and Tailwind.
- Does anyone use this thing?
- Last I checked there are a few hundred Slack teams using Finn. It's best for a smaller team. Lists can get pretty unmanageable once you have too many of them.
- Why did you make Finn?
- At the time, there wasn't an obvious way to easily pick a random place to have lunch. Plus, I like building products to solve my own problems and learning new tech.
