Quotes, like chocolates, have the power to lift spirits up in an instant. Surely, you have found yourself at one time or another scrolling through wall posts of your friends and pausing to ponder on a certain quote that they have shared. These little tidbits can surprisingly turn our moods around and some of these actually stay in our minds long-term and eventually shape our futures.
This same effect of positivity can be shared to more people to spread the good vibes. Pair this with good imagery, you can and you will change lives.
This was Ruby L. Taylor’s goal when she came up with the app, Smope (short for Smiles + Hope). Traumatized by a car accident which left her with a severe brain injury, she went into depression which even led her to think about taking her own life. But with the simple, yet wonderful, effects of photos and positive quotes, she had, once again, learned how it was to smile and to have a hope towards the future.
Smope simply takes your photos and matches them with inspirational quotes so all you need to do is choose 7 to 12 pictures in your gallery that reminds you of good times. Your handpicked memories will transform from faded to full color, as the app changes the hues of your pictures. You can then set up schedules on when these will be posted so you no longer have to forget to lighten your friends’ day.
With just a few taps, Smope can be a ray of light to you and to others.
