Contact and Content Aware Director

So, I am always tinkering and recently I have been completely exhausted by the weakness of contact management databases.  So .. I am designing something different for my own use .. here is where I am so far.  Welcome any insights and additional thoughts.  I was initially thinking html5 so I could have it online and accessible from all my iOS devices, but not married to any tech..yet.

UI

The interface, well I wanted a 3 dimensional nodal image (atlas layout), but that seems beyond reason today.   An example below:

So now I am thinking to just leverage the iOS cover flow UI:

Data Engine

As for hooking to data, well that is becoming easier … with REST APIs and other APIs being available.

Still a work in design process.  Other things that I envision:

  • Data scrapping ability off sites that won’t allow me to build an API
  • hooks into Salesforce.com ?  Would be nice to have this all update centrally and leverage some enterprise backbones instead of building everything from scratch (and paying for it!)
  • Add comments / notes
  • Add reminders and recurring activities
