About

Dear Kickstarter,

I started working on Quotiful one year ago, with the goal of bringing inspiration through beautiful quote pictures into people’s everyday lives. Quotes are a great way to stay motivated, lift your spirits, and calm your mind, but the ways in which we consume quotes today are outdated.

In an effort to stay inspired, we spend hours on social media, quote websites, and in the notes app of our phone jotting down a great quote we heard in a movie or read in a good book. But my belief is - inspiration should find you, not the other way around.

Each day when I open the app, I’m humbled by all the creativity and inspiration wrapped into the Quotifuls that people are sharing. Every new person that joins the community shows me that there’s an unwavering love for quotes and a yearning to express ourselves through the words of others. To keep this inspiring community alive I’m asking for your help in getting our next product off the ground.

With the new Quotiful app, we're creating a way to deliver tailored inspiration throughout your day. We've partnered with an incredible iOS developer and spent weeks drafting wireframes for this next production. We’re ready to move into design and development, but I need your help to get there. It will take $20,000, but I know we can make it happen! In return, I'm offering some awesome inspirational rewards, because after all - it’s Quotiful’s mission to keep you inspired every day!  

Cheers,

 Founder, Quotiful

Quotiful just celebrated its first birthday but has been in the making since the days that Tamagotchis, crimped hair, and Starter jackets were cool (yes, I’m guilty of all of these). Below is a timeline detailing the ups and downs that led to Quotiful’s existence in this world.

Quotes can change perspectives, attitudes, and inspire new ideas. People connect with quotes on a deep emotional and personal level. 

We all know the feeling when you come across a quote that speaks to you. The timing’s just right and you instantly feel encouraged to pursue your dreams, feel optimistic about life, or at ease with your troubles.

The problem is that we spend a lot of our lives searching for that feeling of finding the right quote at the right time. We endlessly scroll through Twitter feeds, double tap Instagram posts, and visit BrainyQuote to sift through endless results. Quotiful is making it our mission to deliver inspiration at the right time and place, when you need it most.

Quotiful started as a way to creatively create, share, and find inspiration. Today, the app is evolving to become a means of staying inspired throughout your day, whether you’re just hoping out of bed, going for a long run, or frustrated at the office. We believe that inspiration should find you, not the other way around. 

We plan on delivering inspiration through these 3 core features:

At Quotiful we have 3 main policies. Keep it simple, make it beautiful, and listen to the community. These principles guide us through our development process and help us make tough decisions when it comes to going one way or another with the app. As always, our community is the number one priority and we love talking to our quote enthusiasts. Each Quotiful update has been the result of our community’s ideas, pains, and praise. While we build this exciting new release our values will be no different!

If you feel inspired by Quotiful's mission to deliver inspiration please help us spread the word by sharing to Facebook and Twitter!

    

Risks and challenges

The most loved apps are the ones that are intricate to build but simple to use. As we strive to create the most seamless user experience and a valuable app that keeps you inspired everyday, we see three main challenges:

1. Curated Quote Lists - Apps like Spotify, Pandora, and Songza have taken the burden of searching for good music off of our shoulders. But, these companies have whole teams of curators designated to crafting high quality playlists. They also have the resources to build great algorithms that take a lot of the manual work out of the process. We will need to implement better systems to find the best Quotifuls from our community and organize them into quote lists that match your mood, tastes, and demographics. Eventually, we’d like to join the ranks of apps with teams of brilliant curators!

2. Quote Library - Like the curated quote lists, our quote library is something we take huge pride in. We’ve been working over the last year (and over the last 27 years of my life!) to build a library that’s composed of only the best, most relevant quotes. We have classics in there like Einstein, Lincoln, and Mark Twain but also work to pull quotes from lyrics, books, and movies. It’s a slow process, but one that makes Quotiful’s library so unique. We’ll eventually need to hire a quote master, or two, to keep our library fresh!

3. Android App - For all the Android users out there that are itching to get your hands on Quotiful, we hear ya! We are missing a huge part of the market and a lot of insightful, inspiring quote enthusiasts by only having an iPhone app. Once we have tested inspiration delivered in our iPhone app we will be making plans to release an Android app.
