We design apps to help people deal with information overload. Our approach is to provide only relevant information at any given time, place and everyday life situation.
Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
Swingmail, Swingbook, and Swingcal, the apps designed to help people manage information overload on mobile, are now launching in the US on the Apple App Store. Swingmail, the minimalistic inbox that receives only important email and messages, Swingbook, the dynamic contact list, and Swingcal, the calendar focusing on the “who”, work together to help users stay focused.
Swingmail is a minimalistic inbox and reply-only app that helps reduce information overload and clutter. The app aggregates messages from Gmail, Facebook and Twitter, and calls from phone and FaceTime, so that everything is collected in one inbox. Swingmail will filter out junk, spam, and messages that don't require a user's immediate attention, to only delivery messages from important contacts. Swingmail is an iOS 8 ready app.
Swingbook is a prioritizing contact list. Based on past messaging patterns, current time and location, Swingbook learns, predicts and suggests the most likely contacts a user would want to get in touch with at any given moment. Swingbook is also seamlessly integrated with the Swingmail inbox.
Swingcal is a minimalistic calendar app that revolves around contacts. The app focuses on the agendas that a user has with someone up to a week in the future. The app can also be used to send a messages and make calls.
“We design apps to help people deal with information overload. Our aim with the Swingnow project is to reconstruct the social landscape of smartphone communication by focusing only on connecting with important contacts. By aggregating and filtering contacts and messages, and by learning past communication histories, future schedule and current location, relevant information will be reflected onto the inbox and contact list. ‘Less is more’. Our approach is to provide only relevant information at any given time, place and everyday life situation”, says Yasuhiro Himukashi, CEO and Founder BHI Inc.

About the Swingnow Project
The Swingnow project aims to suggest an alternative lifestyle amid accelerating information overload, fragmentation, and clutter. In an age where “efficiency” is defined as doing more in a limited time, this project designs efficiency experiences around simply “doing less”. “Efficiency” is defined in terms of “less”, not “more”, because at the end of the day humans can only do so much in a lifetime.
