"Many homescreens fail to provide meaningful interactions and access to information adapted to users’ motivations and context. A majority of homescreens focus on mundane widgets like clocks and weather reports," says Sofia Svanteson, founder and CEO of Ocean Observations. "There is a large group of users who want a truly connected service experience that easily adapts to their situations. Fipplr empowers users to customize their phones with information they crave."
By responding to user interactions with smooth animations and precise reactions, Fipplr removes the tedious opening and closing of applications, and jumping back and forth to access information. Users gain access to real-time feeds that focus on one topic; for example a Twitter widget filters on mentions of a certain profile or feeds with a specific hashtag. New interaction methods, enabled by integrating device sensors, improve the experience. Rotating the device from portrait to landscape presents an expose view and a single swipe movement is enough to modify a profile.
