Dovetales is a mobile application that allows couples living in different timezones to share mundane details with each other in the form of a daily story.


Dovetales helps couples, as well as close friends, living in different timezones maintain strong relationships by sharing the mundane things in life. Although often overlooked, this exchange of simple details deepens intimacy. A Dovetales story consists of several frames a day that form a single story. A frame can be composed of image, text or drawing. Like a letter, once created, the frame can't be edited. It can only be deleted. And much like a storyboard, frames are chronologically ordered and time stamped in the local time of the sender. At the end of each day, one single story is sent out. It is only received once, at a time chosen by the recipient.
