How we got started

Onno demo’ing the first Ding Dong app

2013: The starting point and the launch of “Ding Dong”

First version of the “Ding Dong” app
At some point we even added tiny camera-based snapshots that would appear as a geo-located pin on the map.

2014: Time to empty the whiteboard and leverage our learnings, Taptalk was born

The first screen turns out to be a critical starting point

The Taptalk design “inspired” some other apps

Thank you
