this is another type based identification game to add to the mix, but, in this case, rather then it being solo, its a social one for a change. you compete against your friends or the cloud. a very simple and minimal design that focuses on the type as the main character. pardon the pun.

a serious note on this one. the first well designed/developed app that i have seen directly related to a potentially terminal disease, cancer. this is close to my heart as a family member passed away due to cancer in early 2008. i hope this can help anyone with the disease or a family member understand. a friend of mine Ken Olling did the design for this app.

This is an amazingly innovative app and its one of my new favorites!
