Findery UI Overview[08:45–15:50]

John leads us through the Findery UI, which has been carefully laid out to aid in sharing and discovery.

Travelling and capturing memories and stories[15:50–17:20]

John recalls travels of his and how he was able to record audio soundscapes, and how we all have iOS devices now that are capable of gathering photos, videos, and recordings of everywhere we go. He also talks about tweeting experiences versus capturing them and being able to share them more richly later.

Users and content are what make discovery services compelling[17:20–18:47]

The community is what makes apps like Findery successful, and Findery has worked hard on getting community and getting content into Findery through the web site and now the iOS app.
