Revere Officially Launches and is Featured in the App Store
Revere has been a passion project of mine for several years and I’ll be writing about what I’ve learned through that process (and continue to learn as I build it) here in this blog.
This post is a celebratory one because it’s the official launch day and… it’s featured in the App Store with a hero banner, in one of the most prominent! spots you can get What a way to start!
Quick description of Revere. It’s a notes app for notes about people. It’s a dedicated place to keep the details about the people you meet — like someone’s family members, where they work, and how you met. And because it’s a notes app, you can create a note for whatever specific thing you want to remember — from gift ideas, to how someone likes their coffee.
Revere began as a personal project. I’d always been bad with names and details about people and it caused me a lot of social anxiety. I would regularly go to events/parties and re-introduce myself to someone or avoid people because I couldn’t remember their names. It got bad enough that I avoided going out if I could.
I looked around for an app to help but everything was focused on business or sales people or hard to use. So I built something for regular people, like me. And it made a huge difference! I would remember people’s names the next time I saw them, I got to know my neighbours and people at the local coffee shop — going out actually became fun. I was that guy who remembered people. For me, having a place to put those names and notes made all the difference.
Revere’s mission is to be the trusted place where everyone keeps the details, memories, and shared experiences that make their relationships deep and meaningful. Only when we spend more time with the important people will we feel more connected.
So, a big day and just the beginning.
