Backstory

In the past few years, my phone has become the center of how I consume news, articles, social network feeds, and other contents that I find useful. There are a lot of times where I want to capture and reuse some of these snippets, but there were a number of things made that difficult for me.

  1. Because the selection model and actions available per information snippet can be defined by each application, there are many apps where users aren’t able to select anything.
  2. Even in apps where selection is available (usually through a press and hold and then dragging two grabbers on the two ends precisely to select an area), interaction is rather cumbersome and isn’t always intuitive.

Being able to identify with these problems every day became the starting point. After leading the Hub Keyboard project earlier this year, it became clear once again to me that experimenting and learning from real users are very valuable. I am excited to do the same for Clip Layer and imagine what a capture experience can be moving forward.
