Fabric is a cool new personal location-based journal which catalogs your experiences and interactions automatically. As such, you can have a look back, and remember everything you have done and everyone you have interacted with, on a specific day.
The app was created by ex-Facebook engineers Arun Vijayvergiya and Nikolay Valtchanov. It uses your iPhone’s location features, accelerometer and step counter (iPhone 6 and above) to understand and follow your every move. Then cross-references this data with publicly-listed places provided by Foursquare, as well as private places you can add yourself. Of course it also allows you to tag contacts, friends, and followers, to keep track of who you have interacted with during the day.
The Story Of Your Life That Writes Itself
Fabric links up with your existing social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram) to add context to your activities. For example, it will sync with your Instagram photos. The result, is an impressive exact digital representation of your day, including the places you’ve been to, the people you met, and the pictures you took.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
But don’t worry about over-sharing and privacy. You remain fully in charge! Plus, your friends can only see your location when you are in the same place.
Personally, I like the app and I think there will be others that will like it as well. Especially if you are keen to keep track of everything you do, and everywhere you have been. I will have to question the name though. I wonder how two ex-Facebook guys never realised that Fabric is also the name of Twitter’s mobile development platform.
