unveiled before the opening of the ‘pinned up’ exhibition at the stedelijk, dutch designer marcel wanders launched his very first app for the iPhone entitled ‘milestone’. conceived to make the personal countdown visually engaging, the mobile application helps users chronicle how long ago – or how long until – a meaningful moment occurs, or has occurred. through a simple and intuitive interface, milestone gives users the ability to capture and cherish personal moments in a typically wild manner. one can mark and share the number of seconds since they quit smoking, the number of minutes since their first date, even the number of days until they embark on vacation.


‘measuring special moments in terms of seconds, minutes, hours or days gives a new perception of time. marking significant occasions becomes a personal experience which you can share with others, and with groups of people through your social networks,’ says wanders. ‘milestone’ is a gift to visualize and record, and an opportunity to remember all the beautiful and important things that happen in people’s personal lives.’ he adds.


‘milestone’ is available now for free download through the apple app store here.
