ex-Microsoft employees build Boximize, a structured note-taking app
Cairo, Egypt – Tryvin, a startup founded by two x-Microsoft employees, today is proud to announce the release of Boximize, an iPhone/iPad app that helps bring the power of personal databases to your notes.
Mostafa Ashour and Ahmed Sabry, who have previously worked for Microsoft Research, noticed a gap in the the current note taking app scene and decided to take a stab at filling this gap. “The current scene of note-taking apps is filled with beautiful and simple to use apps. However, we believe that as your notes grow larger and larger, your notes turns into this one big mess. We needed a paradigm shift that helps you file your notes in a different manner and we thought that an easy to use database format would be very suitable. We spent a lot of time on fine-tuning the user experience to make Boximize the new standard for note taking,” says Mostafa Ashour, managing partner at Tryvin.
If you like the simplicity of note taking apps, then Boximize is a note taking app where the note isn’t just a blank page instead the note is a fully customizable form containing fields, making inputting your data faster, easier and less error-prone. Your data becomes sortable, searchable and more organized. Thus bringing the power of personal databases to your notes.
