Why Canvy?

Canvy offers an intuitive means to communicate by providing users with a centralized interface from where they can quickly reach their desired contacts via the best available channel. It aggregates information on which channels are likely to be most successful for contacting a user at a given time.

Discover the intuitive & colourful way to connect with your contacts. Stay mindful of everyone’s time and privacy. This post aims to provide a brief overview of the main benefits that come with using the Canvy app and diving into the colourful Canvy universe.

(1) Canvy’s adaptive screens boost productivity and ease of communication

Your native address book normally shows a list of all contacts. No order, no sorting algorithm. Canvy was designed as a tool which can predict its users’ moves and desires, in many ways like a personal assistant which knows us based on our own communication behaviour. Canvy thus changes the way contacts are displayed by offering users the possibility to choose from different screen displays based on their needs and communication context.

Three view modes are available – recently used contacts, interaction degree and adaptive.
Recently used – contacts are arranged based on the most recent communication with them. The list is chronologically sorted.
Interaction degree – is a view mode in which the contacts are listed based on the most interaction with them. So, more you interact with a contact, its position will rise inside “Home Screen”.
Adaptive – is a mix between “Recently used” and “Interaction degree”. Upper in the screen are displayed contacts with which the user communicated more combined with recently used contacts.

(2) All your preferred communication tools are one tap away

Canvy provides users with a centralized interface from where they can quickly reach their desired contacts via the best available channel. It aggregates information on which channels are likely to be most successful for contacting a user at a given time. It could be that during a meeting, a user is best likely reached via text message – or via a third-party messenger app such as Facebook, WhattsApp or Google Hangouts. Canvy brings all this information to your fingertips, enabling you to redefine personal communication and ensure that you communicate on your own terms.

(3) Privacy for real

Control which information goes public and which details are kept private. All data in Canvy is private and well-secured. We do not keep any information on our servers – data is stored locally on your device. We put users in control – they are aware at all times of what information is shared and with whom.
