Let's agree to disagree guys, people won't stop using their phones at concerts and bother you. It's clever to provide an alternative to the standard camera app maybe it's a start to empower people to respect each other, probably why it's called be Kimd, btw.
In my opinion the best way to don't disturb people at a concert is to not use your phone at all and enjoy the music.
Totally agree: this is not resolving a problem, this is just trying to mitigate the consequences.
I have to politely disagree. Every concert I go to these days, it seems like there's a sea of white light right at eye level that really takes me away from the music. The problem is already there, and this looks like a great solution. If people won't naturally abstain from using their phones at concerts (or aren't disciplined enough to use the iPhone's brightness controls), why not provide a native app that also gives you great options for sharing and (hopefully later) editing photos?
Probably it's just me hating people recording the whole event.
Well, if I started working on this project, you can imagine that I was not a big fan of people ruining concerts by doing a light show with their phones... :) I know it may not be the best solution but at least I'm trying to do something that isn't about banning phones in concert.
You're right, I am too radical. I've been too harsh, sorry for that
This is a good idea and the site is nice. More power to you!
Clearly, it would be best for people not to put their phone in my line of site at all, but I think that ship has sailed. FFS I've seen iPads being held up at public events. Since not being an asshat to others in public is NOT going to catch on, this would be the next best thing.
I like the idea behind this, and I think it's awesome.
Very cool side project.
Yet another reminder for myself to execute my ideas.. This is from 2013 but wasn't brought to life because of the image recognition feature: http://i.imgur.com/MnWpLBf.jpg
Cool concept board! I know the feeling and this is actually the first side project I really "executed". If you've got spare time, you should try to work on your ideas. This was my new year resolution and I really don't regret it.
Thanks, Julie! Actually, I am working on a lot of stuff next to my day job - there are just so many ideas that end up in the drawer instead of being worked on, either by me or others.
Feel free to use the idea for the "moving target buzz" feature - would be cool!! :-)
Really tasteful site. The concept is great, I just don't think people have the etiquette in them to even consider such a thing.
Also, I'd kill for a tutorial on the layered/masked transition style - seen it quite a bit and like it, but can't seem to sort it out on my own.
I like the idea and the execution. Well done Ms. Chabin.
Great work Julie !
Tres beau projet Julie. Si je peux faire mon relou (déjà fait), je rendrais peut être cliquable la "flèche" amenant au scroll sur la landing.
Nice looking site. I imagine people who are thoughtful enough to realize their screen brightness is annoying to others would just turn it down via the built-in Control Center, though.
Scroll is pretty terrible on Windows using a scroll wheel. That said, very cool!
