Hi πŸ‘‹, I’m Roel I'm very excited to share the app I've been working on the past months: Hippo. An app that helps you remember all the important things about the persons you care for. 🀯 My problem: forgetting things all the time I have been struggling with my memory at work and in my personal life. I used to forget children’s names, someone's job, birthdays, anniversaries and other important life events. This made me insecure and unhappy. Because I like to be attentive and thoughtful! So, I started tracking notes linked to persons in a simple Airtable database and that helped me a lot! I decided to turn that idea into an app. Go from forgetful πŸ˜¬πŸ’­ to attentive πŸ€—πŸ’¬ With the Hippo app, you can keep track of your friends, family and loved ones. β€’ Refresh your memory before you meet. β€’ Make notes after you have met. β€’ Create events to remind yourself of important dates. β€’ Use to-dos so you don't forget to keep in touch Next time you meet, a glance at the person's profile in Hippo is all you need to remember the details! πŸ”’ Privacy Similar apps often require full access to your address book and store your data on their servers. I'm always scared away by that, so I took extra care of privacy. Your data is only stored on your device. I don't operate any servers for Hippo. You don't need an account. And access to your Contacts is optional. I'm looking forward to your questions and feedback!
@roelvanderkraan Appreciate your respect for privacy. So many apps these days are just shameless. Oh, you wanna play tetris? Cool, allow our app to make outgoing calls.
@mooooorrisjjj LOL :) Yeah it's really a no-no for me when an app requests permission to my entire phone book before I had the chance to try it out.
Congrats on the launch! πŸŽ‰ The app looks great! πŸ‘ Much love from Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬
@fajarsiddiq Thanks Fajar πŸ₯³ Lots of love from Nieuwersluis πŸ˜‰πŸ‡³πŸ‡±
Congrats on launch! 🎊 Following your development on makerlog from a long time. Do you plan on releasing on android?
@zicsus Thanks Himanshu! πŸ₯³ No Android version anytime soon I'm afraid, I'm glad to have finished a decent app in Swift 😁 A Mac version is next on my list. And depending on how that all goes I might consider Android too..
Congrats on the launch! πŸŽ‰ The app looks great! πŸ‘
