Privacy no matter the medium
No one wants their thoughts to be read without their consent. Privacy is at stake no matter it be a paper notebook or a mobile app.
Writing at the speed of the light
To encourage anyone to get started and write more, it's key to be able to pull out the app and instantly jot down few notes.
Nowadays with all the technologies and smart sensors surrounding us, why not integrate our memories into our everyday life moments? Going out from a meeting at work or a dinner with friends, let's write how I feel right after!
Onboarding of Memoir app
Natural mapping, Skeuomorphism...
When I write a new note, I go to the next page on the right, assuming it's going to be blank.
When I want to read my past notes, I go to the left pages, assuming that the more I turn the pages, the further it goes backward in time.
When I use a bookmark, I assume it enables me to go straight to the last page I’ve written.
Inspired by latest design patterns of apps relying mostly on gestures, Memoir has been thought based on gestures first. Instead of having buttons and other call-to-actions, all interactions are based on swipes and presses.
Memoir is integrated within the native iPhone calendar (iCal). Whenever someone is writing down a note, it goes directly at the related time and date in their calendar.
