A living family network
- The 'Kin' app was a collaborative project with two other designers, the task set was to create an app that would be commercially attractive. We initially wanted to create an app that would resemble a family tree, a life logging app that would record your families history. By exploiting the ipads in built compass and geolocation facilities we intended to add locations so users could be alerted to when they were nearing a place of historical importance. We then decided that this although interesting would soon become a closed resource, once the information is there there might not be a daily use for the app. For that reason we decided to turn it into a tool for keeping in touch with your family members, it became a social network that was intended just for your family. A place where you could arrange family events and perhaps discover relatives in other countries, using kin to unite the family. Here is a representation of the app which you are very welcome to look through, I hope you don't get lost http://interactivedesignfalmouth.co.uk/kin
