Introducing Awesome Jar

Do you catch yourself forgetting the little things? That day you had the impromptu barbecue. The time your sister slapped you with a beef tongue (yes, that happened). Something silly that just made you laugh. Or the moment you met the weirdest person on earth.

How about all the fancy details of life’s sweetest events, like weddings, holidays, and birthdays?

Maybe, there's your work projects, that you want to share progress of with co-workers, or you're a teacher, and want to celebrate the school year with your students. There are so many things in our lives that should be memorialized; and endless opportunities with this app.

Do you just want to capture something awesome, show off progress on your project, share special times with those closest?

Now there's Awesome Jar, the app that allows you to memorialize and time capsule these memories and share with those people who were “there when it happened!”

What Is Awesome Jar?

To be simple, Awesome Jar is a digital time capsule shared with awesome people of your choosing!

Awesome Jar collects memories in video, picture, or text format, chosen by you and your contributors.

Just like a time capsule; it has a time frame to add entries, a holding period for as long as you choose, and then is REVEALED, to you and your contributors!

So how does it work?

It's super simple!

  1. Create a jar: Give it a name, and share it with your friends, family, coworkers... whoever! Simply enter one or more email addresses to share your jar. You can also set time frames that define when a jar can have new memories added, when it becomes closed, and when it can be viewed.
  2. Add memories: While a jar is "open", anyone with access to the jar can add memories. Cool video of your dog doing a somersault? Pic of the marker all over your 2-year-old's face? Quick text message to yourself or from someone else that made you laugh? Yep, add them all!
    Important: Once a memory is added, it is "locked away", time-capsule-style, until the jar is set to be revealed.
  3. The jar closes: Once a jar is "closed", no new memories can be added. Then when the jar is ready to be viewed, you'll see a slide show of all of the memories put into the jar. Pretty cool!

But I have social media...?

Yes, but do you have an app that is a time capsule??

We have Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram and Pinterest to show everyone, everything, all the time. There is no filter, there is no organization to it. Your feed is based on an algorithm. Your timeline is just that, sorted by date (sometimes), thrown in your face without you picking what you want to see, when you want to see it.

Awesome Jar allows you to tuck away the most awesome and precious memories in your life while they are fresh in your mind, saving them to be opened at a later time, time-capsule-style. You share it with the people you choose!

How did you come up with this?

Hi! I’m Gina and I live to laugh every day, and usually say “Sure what’s the worst that could happen,” no matter what it is someone asks me to do. Family, friends, and the things we share are important.

My family loves traditions, and at some point, the Awesome Jar became one!

Throughout the year, we write notes and enter them into the jar. We contribute any awesome things that happen however minuscule, dangerous, happy, stealthy, sad, important, hilarious, mushy, joyous... Anything and everything, as long as it inspires awe.

The notes remained tucked away in the jar until New Year's Day dinner, when we shake it up and dump out all the memories. Everyone grabs random notes and starts reading them. We laugh and try to guess who put each memory in the jar, and we revel in the memories we've created, both together and apart.

My sister slapping me with that beef tongue is one of the best memories I have involving the grocery store. If I didn't put it in my jar, I might forget it... Well, maybe not, because it was hilarious. But maybe I would have forgotten that she brought me flowers on my birthday.

Throughout 2018, my sister was out of town a lot, and she called me and mentioned something awesome that happened to her. I said, "Make sure you put that in the jar!" After a brief pause we both laughed and said, "We need an app for that!" She didn't know if she'd remember to do it when she got home and was exhausted from traveling and a dozen other things had happened. Sure we can carry around a notebook for our awesome notes, but what is this... 1980?

Thus, Awesome Jar was born and app-ified!
