v1.8.3 – Localization & UX Improvements

This update brings some localization and user experience improvements:

  • You can now decide to skip notifications permission granting during onboarding. To enable them, go to the Settings Tab.
  • When selecting your contact card during onboarding, the field now populates your name.
  • You can now long press on a contact card and the actions sheet will be presented.
  • If a contact does not have a name, KINN will fallback to the phone number or the email.
  • Some content was not being localized correctly in certain regions. This has now been fixed.

Hope you enjoy these new improvements.

KINN is a free contacts app for iOS and you can download it from the App Store.

The story behind KINN

Hi, this is DragoČ™, I am the indie developer behind KINN.

For the past few years I’ve been concerned with privacy, use of personal data by big corporations and manipulation on social media apps like Facebook and Instagram.


In 2018, I have made the conscious decision to completely remove most of my social media accounts (except Twitter). However, before actually doing it, I conducted a thorough analysis on my own use of those social media apps and discovered that for Facebook for instance, I was using it as a proxy to get in touch with friends and people I knew after seeing their posts on my timeline (thanks to the unknown algorithms), which might as well have been random for me. Another useful feature was knowing and being reminded about people’s birthdays.
