Quiet Software - November 07, 2021
We live in a world where information competes for our attention. Alerts, feeds, reminders: noisy software.
Personally, I prefer simple software that remains out of the way until you need it. This is why when I thought about the must-haves for Auer Notes, I chose to make it quiet. From the interface, to the features and how those two interact, my aim was to be as stealthy as possible, focusing on distinguishing the app by its simplicity and, more importantly, silence. Quiet software.
Quiet software is distraction free and it appears when needed. Quiet software focuses on less, when everyone is looking for more.
Quiet software is aggressively mute, simple, and stealthy.
Think about it. Do we need all those alerts? All the information on screen? Do we need to constantly require input from the user?
No. Not for most apps.
Let’s push for quiet software. Let’s focus on stealthy functionality, with less and not more.
Auer Notes is the simplest way to take notes.
