I've always focused on being productive, it's just in my mindset. Way back in 2013, I downloaded several apps from the app store(s) to start using Calendars, Tasks, Notes and more to improve my daily workflow. I soon realized it was a hassle to use and manage 4-5 or more different apps, it was a fragmented experience. I also didn't have a way to view a summary of everything at one easy glance. Essentially, most of what I needed to do and information I looked at was inherently interconnected. This is where the inception for Blend was born.
