Do You Belive That Less Really Can Be More? You Do! Really….
Stickle notes, pads, writing boards, on the back of your hand, if you want to remember something the cliché is true, write it down! There are countless applications on the shelves of the App Store that provide a virtual method of penning notes to help point your grey matter in the right direction. So for developer’s Christopher Thibault and Brendan Lee to make their mark they will need bring something a little different to capture the attention and they adopted for minimalism. Their whiteboard application really is white, with very little in the way of presentation beyond a bafflingly colourful home page. With a variety of expected features, brush size, colour pallet and a share via email feature if you want to remind others of your daily task list, attempt to add a little colour and fail.
Of course the lack of presentation and features remove any distractions from the core feature of this app yet it is hard to shake the feeling that it is possible this minimalistic design isn’t an aesthetic choice more of a necessity based on ability.
