I was inspired by the Time Well Spent movement about a year ago and didn’t notice that I’ve been developing apps under the same purpose: respecting the user’s intention.
So, a couple of months ago I decided to bundle the apps under one brand and mission: Introducing Intent – tools to help you be more intentional with your digital life.
Here’s the list of apps:
Launcher – is an Android app launcher that lets you organize essentials and distractions
Browser – is a browser extension that functions as a mute switch for website features that don’t respect your intent. Think AdBlock but for persuasive design patterns; targetted for non-technical users.
Timer – is a timer that lives in your browser aiming to provide insight and access controls to the time you spend online.
Intent apps are currently in active development. I would appreciate any feedback for the products and the website itself. Maybe some talking points:
- What do you think about the website’s messaging? Is it clear enough?
- Do the screenshots give enough idea on how the apps would work? Would you use them?
To anyone interested, please sign up for the beta list. I’d love for this community to be a part of Intent’s early development!
