LifeCrumbs Allows You to Savour the Moments in Your Everyday Life

LifeCrumbs is a new social journal that allows you to share memorable moments in your everyday life. It aims to cut through the noise and hassle of all the social networks, presenting you with the most important events in a calendar format. Users can import posts, including the ones you write on your friends’ walls.

The Taipei-based startup was the winning idea in an internal rocket pitch within the team back in May. It first came about when they were tired of filtering through content spread across different social networks, and envisioned a platform that allows friends to have a more intimate sharing experience.

The idea of having a more personal social network reminds me a little of the Path app, which restricts users to only 150 connections. However, Maggie Cheung, co-founder of LifeCrumbs, tells us that her app stresses thoughtful content sharing above all else:

[…] Path encourages users to share every moment, such as music they are listening to, or when they wake up and go to sleep. We encourage our users to share only the memorable moments that truly define their day. These are the moments that they value and want to remember about their day. This the quality content that is really worth sharing.

In my opinion, the app looks pretty. It does take a bit of getting used to, because unlike most apps which have the features laid across at the bottom of the app, LifeCrumbs has them hidden. It appears only when you tap on the arrow at the bottom of the screen.

Maggie also says that the startup will be releasing a Chinese version in mid November, and the startup has an Android version in the works too. It also plans to take advantage of the calendar feature and introduce a new “planning” function, letting users easily plan events with their friends.

If you’d like to give the app a try, you can download it for iOS here.

    Great article! Just went to download LifeCrumbs. It’s pretty and intuitive. I like that it helps me record my most memorable moments in life! Much cooler than Path, thanks for the recommendation!

    I agree with the comments of your article, and can’t wait to see the planning feature personally for myself. Right now it is equally useful for checking back previous dates and seeing what occurred then. Real useful and fun for seeing what went on over the weeks or months past. Made it a lot easier to keep track what has and hopefully what will happen.

    the Calendar function is something to keep an eye on… they seem to know what they’re talking about… especially since I just stopped using Path.

    Wow, randomly came across this article, tried out lifecrumbs and I love it! Love the feel and layout and the idea is great. I can weed through the nonsense that has dominated my other feeds and I can see what’s i portent. I don’t share much on other networks but I like this since it gives me an idea of what was important and when it happened. Its still new so there are some bugs, but I’ve sent in feedback and got some great responses from them. I’m excited about the planning feature this article talks about!
