The Peopl button is what you press when
you meet new people.
Peopl is just like any other address book
except that it lets you add two interesting
bits of information about a contact.
HOW THEY HELP PEOPLE
WHAT THEY NEED HELP WITH
You can then tag these entries according to
their relevant skills.
When you tag an entry with relevant
skills (and needs) the app finds matches
in your database and makes a
For example, if you tag one entry with
‘Cooking’ (under how they help people)
and ‘Marketing’ (under what they need
help with) and then find someone in
marketing (who wants to learn how to
cook) the app will suggest you connect

The Remindr button is what you press
whenever you have something new to do.
When you press the button you go to a ‘My
Word’ list, but when you ﬂip the phone it
becomes a Task Clock.

The coloured caps correspond your
daily tasks. The closer a task is to the
center the higher its priority. The
hand takes 24 hours to complete
one rotation and it drags the caps
along as it goes.
Whenever the hand comes in contact with a
task your phone vibrates. If it starts dragging
more than three tasks at once it vibrating
more and more frequently to remind you
that you are putting things off.

answer two simple questions...
Are you sticking to your word? Are you following through?

Connekt allows you to take pictures of
business cards and record people’s
details through the microphone. The
details are then flagged in the next
days task clock so that you can feed
them in properly. This just reduces the
amount of time you have to fiddle with
your phone at a social event.
If two people are on Connekt then
they don’t have to waste time
swapping details, all they have to do
is turn connekt on and bring their
phones close together (personally I
think the phones should actually have
to touch, as in connect).
Connekt has a dynamic relation with
other productivity apps. It functions
as a stand alone application and it can
import data and export data to/from
the apps you already use (iCal,
outlook, Address book, iphone
Reminders, etc) so you only have to
use it when you want to.

The app design is based on existing apps or
entrepreneurs, young people starting out in
concepts (such as the task clock) that have been
business and start-ups, and people who actively
network (such as networking groups, networking

To help promote the product I would look at
