Hello and thank you for visiting my web site.
My name is Zaid Al-Timimi and I developed The Mashup App to empower people with tools and technologies to curate their digital data. The Mashup App will allow you to preserve your memories and capture your knowledge... all from the privacy of your mobile device. The Mashup App is now available from the Apple iTunes App Store.
