An iPhone app for capturing the now

Kennedy created for iOS is a new way to mark moments in time complete with surrounding context of the things happening around you.

With a single tap Kennedy will capture your location, the date and time, the current weather conditions, the latest world news headlines together with what music you're listening to at the time. Add a note or a photo and then save it to the archive of captured moments.

Kennedy originally started out as a physical electronic prototype that allowed me to press a button whereupon it would gather up certain bits of data such as the weather and the news and then tweet that moment. It placed the capture within the context of what was happening in the rest of the world. Eventually the idea manifested itself into its own iPhone app.

Reached number one in the Lifestyle category on several App Stores including the USA.
