h!storify for Android - Event aggregator application that supports openness.
Historify is an Android application for managing contact-related events gathered from various sources (call log, messaging app, 3rd party applications and extensions). The different events are displayed in an integrated view to let you browse the flow of the events of your contacts.
The application also make contacting your friends easier by offering shortcuts to the different interaction types registered by the system (e.g. initiate phone calls) and the application that collaborate with Historify.
The key element of Historify is to support openness: with the help of the Historify Bridge, all the applications installed on your phone could easily connect with Historify's aggregation engine: any application could generate events and provide options for interaction, if their developer built the Bridge support into the application.
