My app KipinTooch is a kind of contact management app. I created it with the following intentions:
- Have a better view among the common informations from different contacts.
- Highlight the relations between contacts.
- Allow a batch modification for those informations.
- Help filling informations in a contact card based on similar contacts.
I also wanted the starting point to be the user. So, the app need to gather some informations about the user. But I also wanted the app to be self-sufficient. The app should process data from the phone and everything is done on the phone. No third party social network, no sending to a unknown distant server which would do its magic. This is what I call to be respectful: the user private data remains private and on its device.
This mean that if you want to provide the user some similar informations, you can only rely on what’s on the device. In this post, I will show you how you can gather those informations.
