Quilt is an real time scrap booking app where users can connect with friends. Users essentially “stitch” together their relationships with people they are connected with. Think of the app in the context of larger social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Only Quilt is much more private. Users can post comments, make notes, share video and photo with one or more choice users. User can set strict privacy settings that only allow the intended recipient can see the post. It is a storytelling device for friends, and a platform for daily communication. Those who receive quilts can add new content to each share. If users choose to enable push notifications, Quilt is just like texting. It is especially useful for those who are removed from their families and friends, as users can publish their Quilts that include their current locations and activities. Users can subscribe to other Quilts as well as enabling others to access their own. It is a great social media tool and it recommended for children ages 8 and older.

this app is good for kids who need help with:


Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings. Improving social skills.

Quilt is all about fostering relationships and making new connections. Users can stay close to their friends and family by sending pictures, videos, and messages through the app. They can document and highlight special occasions and ongoing friendships. The app is designed to help users report their behavior, interactions, and even some of their most private feelings to choice recipients. Quilt can be a powerful tool for users to analyze their own behavior while recording "memories." Users who are sharing their "memories" and uploading pictures that are not intended to be in the public domain must be able to evaluate the nature of their posts, and decide who they would like to share it with. While the "private" setting is enabled by default, users can choose to share their quilts across all social platforms if they wish. Quilters will always have access to all archived content, which allows them piece together their memories, experiences, and conversations. Users can also seek out "subscribers" from other social media sites, as well as their contact lists, in an effort to expand the social circle that Quilt encompasses.


Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

Because the nature of the app allows users to "stitch" together pieces of their lives, their real time shares are neatly arranged and archived on the web version of Quilt. The app functions like a group text message with image and location services, allowing users to make Quilt a one stop solution to making plans, and organizing group activities. While the app is fairly limited in its functionality, it accomplishes its mission to keep people connected in a way that does not involve heavy social media platforms or phone calls. By creating a variety or content related "quilts" labelled "vacation," "sports," "school," users are able to organize their social lives into a series of searchable categories.
