Sticky Storm – Digital Sticky Note

With Sticky Storm, MINIMAL has conceptualized an intuitive productivity app for capturing, organizing, collaborating, and sharing ideas all within the cloud. It allows users to easily cross-pollinate and share content with a team, while tracking the evolution of the idea from beginning to end.

Sticky notes are ubiquitous throughout organizations that create products and services all over the planet. They are consumed in high volume every day for jotting down information, capturing a fleeting idea, creating reminders, as well as for strategic planning. Their immediacy and temporary nature relieves creative block, organizational paralysis and have become an essential tool for brainstorming in every type of business.

Whether you’re an individual entrepreneur or a corporate innovation team, managing ideas are an essential part of the creative process. In the digital age creative ideas flow at a chaotic pace. Inspirations happen on the go and need to be captured in the moment.  And often our ideas live in more than one place and need to be consolidated effectively.

With Sticky Storm, capturing and sharing ideas has never been easier.

E-book UI That Lets You Flip Pages Like a Real Book

A pretty cool interface that goes just beyond a simple page turning animation. Fairly cool for touch screen tablets like the Ipad but not so much for the Kindle. It lets you ‘thumb’ through your digital book just as you would a physical one, so you can tactilely navigate through an e-book in the same intuitive way we do with paper pages.

So what would a genuinely “intuitive” navigation scheme for e-books look and feel like? Something familiar enough to be easy–which is where a touch of skeuomorphism comes in handy–but “alien” enough to not send us down blind alleys of preconceived notions that no longer apply.
