Perhaps we don’t always realize it but technology, and how we interact with it, has fundamentally changed our lives. Delivering great products with an extreme focus on the thoughtful details around the things that we do every day with our phones. Key to this on the new Asha platform is an exciting new feature called Fastlane. This is how designer describes it:
“With Fastlane you can see your present, you can scroll down to see your past and you can pull down to see the future. It’s sort of a historical timeframe of past, present and future all in the one place.”
It tracks all of your behaviours and helps to gather your connected life, so you can go back at any point and access information without necessarily being stuck in application silos.Think of Fastlane as a second homescreen, or a shortcut that brings together all your recent apps, messages and content. It’s all the things that you did most recently, and all the things you do most often.
