…in a nutshell

When designing bitsofMine we kept our focus on the user experience and the user’s data.

In more detail, our current drivers are:

  • The User Experience
    • Keep everything simple
    • Optimize for touch interaction
    • Use a single timeline instead of a folder structure
    • Make search meaningful
    • Make important photos more prominent without hiding the rest


  • The Data
    • Make photo import automatic but keep the user in control
    • Use all the sources that matter to the user
    • Leverage context information
    • Empower users to keep all their photos locally
    • Empower users to utilize the cloud when they want to
    • Above all: It’s the user’s data, not ours! We don’t want to lock the user in!
