With one-tap Kennedy will capture layers of a moment including location, date and time, current weather conditions, latest world news headlines together with what music you're listening to at the time. Add a note or a photo and then save it to the archive of captured moments.
Use the archive to relive past moments. Remember where you were when that big news event happened, or show all those moments when it was raining or when you were listening to that much loved song.
Use the Data Explorers to explore your captures; see them grouped by locations on a map, geek out with stats and relive moments with postcards from the past.
Share any of your captures to Twitter, Facebook or via email and SMS.
Edit your photos, make adjustments and add effects using the built-in Aviary photo editor.
Choose from different headlines that were happening at the time and view the actual news article. Specify your own news source for the headlines - local, global, politics, technology, it's up to you!
Sync Kennedy across all your devices through iCloud.
Backup and restore your data using Dropbox.
View a map of where you were stood when you captured the now.
Add a venue via a list provided by Foursquare and open the venue details in the Foursquare app.
Export your collected data to a standard JSON or CSV file so if you love to code you can create your own data visualisations or import them into online data viz tools.
Filter the archive to find locations, weather conditions and more.
What's New in Version 1.4
iCloud syncing; this most requested feature now enables you to sync Kennedy across all your iOS devices using your iCloud account.
New look for the Capture Archive, making more of your photographs.
Flashback feature; Kennedy will remind you of moments from a year ago via notifications on your device.
Lots of graphical improvements and tweaks including optimisation for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Thank you for using Kennedy; oh and in case you didn't hear, Kennedy won Silver at the Information is Beautiful Awards! Thank you to those that voted.
Cool app but needs some improvements
I enjoy using this app to log moments. I love the geotagging and data explorer features especially. There are a few minor things I think need to be improved though: 1, this app had major issues working overseas. It would constantly freeze when trying to load news headlines and as a result, I couldn't log moments at that time although I had cellular and wifi connections. 2, some keyboards don't jive so well with the app. You'll be typing something but can't view what you type because the keyboard is covering it
Overall, I love the purpose and function of the app. There are just a few minor bugs that need to be worked out.
Great Way to Capture Special Moments
12/29/14 - 1.4 Update looks great so far. Still using this app everyday, love the postcards feature that lets me see what was going on six months ago. Keep up the great work, can't wait to see the features you'll be adding in 2015.
First of all, I can't say enough how much I love Kennedy, so please keep up the great work on this app. I just purchased it after the release of 1.3. I've been using DayOne and 1 Second Every Day for over a year now and didn't appreciate the niche that Kennedy would fill in between both (I'm using it principally to capture important moments in my life that I wouldn't generally capture in DayOne or anywhere else - the elation I'm feeling when reading an exciting chapter in a great novel, the pleasure I take in eating the first batch of really crisp and delicious grapes when they come in season, or the simple pleasure I'm feeling using a new feature in an updated iOS app).
Can't wait to buildup enough moments over time so that I can go back and review moments 6 months ago, a year ago, etc.!
