Sometimes on social media we tend to post things which show our lives are perfect even though there might be some things might not fine. Spindle is a social journaling app for iPhone users that wants user to create content for themselves rather than developing it for the community.
The application lets user takes pictures, textual content or sound clips and create how a normal day looks for you. The catch is there are no followers, no weird friend requests, and no need to share an awkward moment with the 1000 friends you might have.
If you decide to share a moment with a friend, they will see it on their timeline, which they can view as a message, save as a permanent entry in their journal or remove it forever.
The idea behind Spindle is to increase authenticity of the content created by people. Eventually you can use a time machine to browse through content of previous days or years. Create a memory for your road trip, or post an old picture of your first day at school; it is your personal journal. To share content with your friends, you just need to have them in your address book.
The app is an idea of Alex Walker and Amanda Lin who want to let users create for themselves. In a nutshell, Spindle does want to work on improving the crafting an amazing journal of one’s life and sharing specific moments with specific people. You can download the app here for iOS.
