The Nomie Story

From the original Nomie website 2016

Hi Internet, I’m Brandon Corbin.

For too many years of crazy highs / debilitating lows, and not listening to the doctors and therapists telling me I needed to keep a “feelings journal”, I decided it was time to give it a try.

After trying all of the available apps for life tracking, it became perfectly clear: if I was going to track my life, I needed something stupidly easily. Nomie had to be built. I closed all of my other side-projects and started coding.

3 months later I released an MVP of Nomie (called Mento at the time) - that stored everyones data in Firebase, a cloud database now owned by Google. The problem was people track INSANELY private things with Nomie. So much in fact that I started freaking out knowing NO ONE should have this data but the user. I completely shutdown the MVP, and rebuilt it for offline only, this was the birth of Nomie.

Nomie truly has given me a new perspective on my life and “how I work”. It helps me remember the good, when things ain’t so good.
