Millions of people are affected by mental health issues every year. In the US, one out of five adults experience mental illness. Besides the human impact, this leads to tremendous costs in lost productivity.
With the advent of wearable devices such as smart watches, smart ear pads, sleep monitoring devices, and Augmented Reality (AR) glasses, new possibilities open up for health and wellness applications. Moreover, smartphone apps such as headspace, calm, runtastic, etc. have shown that technology may help improve people’s life and wellbeing. …
Say hello to Shortcut 6.1 😀
Welcome the new ‘Plus’ button. We replaced the existing red button with a new, better, version of it offering three possibilities.
Running a startup company is a damn hard thing. However, in times of crises it becomes a question of bare survival with any means. The Corona pandemic is a serious crisis and it will impact your startup.
During the 2008 financial crisis we were in a similar situation with our startup kooaba. Actually, when it hit, we were in a due diligence phase with a potential acquirer. They suddenly faced financial challenges themselves and drew back. We ended up running out of cash and it was impossible to raise any money as most investors stopped all activities. Moreover, we still…
For the past six months we were working hard on Shortcut 6.0. This time we pushed the limits further than ever before. We listened to our users and added amazing new features. Shortcut 6.0 introduces Sub-Folders, Notes Sharing, Tag Filter and Dark Mode.
Sub-folders allow for better notes organisation. We carefully designed the UX to make it more intuitive for users.
Your feedback is our fuel. The newest version of Shortcut adds tons of value for you.
The biggest change in this version is the camera. We removed the recognition mode as recognition is always on for magazines (Betty Bossi, Kochen, and KURIER) and QR Codes. We also added the possibility to switch between single- and multi-image mode. This saves a lot of time if you are only taking one image at the time.
Still, the best part is the new document scanner that automatically detects document outlines and cuts out the essential.
We want to help you to find your photo notes quickly and in an easy way. Therefore, we introduced in-app search and spotlight search in Version 5.0.0. With version 5.0.3 we bring it to the next level. Say hello to the sorting feature.
There are 3 ways to sort your photo notes.
We got many emails from users about how to delete notes. In the new version 5.0.1 we made deleting notes clearer and added the possibility to restore deleted notes. Say hello to the trash bin :-)
There are now two possibilities to move notes to the trash bin.
We have been working hard on a completely new version of Shortcut and we are all excited to present it to you.
The new Shortcut is carefully designed to answer the needs of creators and innovators. Shortcut is the place for your photo notes and visual inspirations. Collect recipes, screenshots, print articles, and everything you want to remember.
Here’s what’s new.
Isla San Cristobal, Galapagos
Despite my wetsuit, I was getting cold and headed back to shore. I called my friend to tell her that I was going back, but she did not reply. Maybe she did not hear me. Suddenly I heard her calling me in alarm. I turned back to the deeper water where we were last exploring the rock formation together. And when I saw her, she was showing me a sea turtle 12 meters deep.
She dove down to the turtle and went quite close to her. She started playing with her. The turtle did not…
1'000 nautical miles against the wind
It was 11PM and darkest night at sea. Lightnings all around us lit the cloudy sky with a period of approximately 5 seconds, each followed by strong thunder. Many hits were very close to Maya. We were surrounded by apocalyptic weather, but we felt relieved.
Three hours earlier, we left Costa Rica and that entire day — Thursday, the 7th of July 2016 — was crazy. The check out lasted more than two hours for only three offices. The last office I visited was the “Capitania” in order for the port captain to sign…
