Hippo

A personal relationship manager

Hippo is a personal relationship manager where you can store notes about the people you meet and set nudges to remind yourself to stay in touch.

Great idea - I definitely need this in my life! Are there any plans to introduce smart notifications? For example, if I don't contact someone for a year Hippo will send me a gentle nudge to get back in contact with them.

@rtkilian Hi Rhys, just posting this reply here so you get an email notification. McArthur left a reply below. (We need to improve the comment section design so it's clear people need to use the reply button instead.)

Thanks a lot Rhys! To your question, smart notifications are aligned with the exact direction we are taking Hippo. It blows me away how I can go months forgetting to reach out to people that matter in my life. It's not that I don't care, I just need a little nudge. Hippo allows me the capability to visualize my network, which is step one of what you are describing, but this is absolutely a problem we are tackling. I really do appreciate you taking the time to reach out, and I hope Hippo changes your life as much as it has changed mine.

Indeed very useful for someone like me who is very social but poor memory ;)

If you get the UI right (read effortless), its a killer product!

@sandeepperiwal Yeah that's what we are after! One of my favorite things about Hippo is that we have moved the organization piece of note-taking to the backend. In order to take a note in many note-taking apps, you must launch an app, find the right person, scroll down the list of notes, and then finally take the note. That was enough effort to ever keep me from really taking notes on people. Hippo, on the other hand, allows you to simply send a text message to the Hippo phone number. The next morning, Hippo reminds you to go organize all of your notes — meaning you can organize while laying in bed instead of when you are out to drinks with friends.
