Memory loss is something that I think everyone can relate to, so you've gone a great job picking something with broad potential appeal! Your mock-ups are fun and playful, too; unique design matters when you're trying to stand out and get people to use your app. Some of the next questions I would ask, then try to answer, are: How does a user set up reminders in the app? Are there suggestions based on commonly-forgotten habits, or can I add my own? Is there any "reward" for successfully following a reminder (sometimes this is called "game-ifying" an app)?

I love that you chose to focus on how to address the very important issue of memory loss! As you demonstrated, there is a lot of potential for apps to improve health and quality of life for those who may need reminders. The colors and design choices you made are unique and will help to distinguish your app from others. I would like to see more of your thought and design process, as well as additional text explaining how your app works. You did a great job!

Memory loss is a very real problem among the elderly and those with neurodegenerative disorders. My father and mother-in-law are both dealing with this, and an app targeted at helping this community would be amazing.

I love that your mock-ups look very fun and playful. I think they could be engaging, especially if it will involve characters with distinct personalities.

One thing that I have found is that simply using the regular user interface of the phone gets increasingly difficult for those with memory loss. We have trouble getting my dad and mother-in-law to use the phone at all, and they can mostly only use features on the main homepage such as a one-touch button that dials a particular person.

So one thing to think about is how your app could adapt as someone's dementia progresses, to become increasingly simple to use. Also, if the app could be built around conversational AI agents that do speech recognition, then the user could talk to the app and ask it to do things, which might be a much more accessible user interface.

I love the idea of helping people with memory loss and your app has such a cute name. The messages on the slides are super cute as well. I wanted to ask if you would need to have memory loss to use this app.
