Pintail is a travel companion app for guided storytelling. It will start by capturing your travel plan so that it can nudge you with personalized story-creation triggers at the right context. Pintail would act as a work-in-progress scrapbook from the moment a trip is planned. It will provide users the structure and tools for storytelling while taking into account the short attention span of today's audience. Pintail would use priming as a technique by showing the user what others feel or have drawn about the places he or she is visiting. Some of the content of Pintail prompts would be automatically collected from travel review sites. Users can then use the Pintail story-creation tools to reflect and create their own stories. Pintail would also attempt to balance between the story creation activity and the actual trip experience.
