It’s been a year since our baby LokLok has first seen the world. Since then it has found its home in smartphones and tablets of thousands of people. Living its life humbly and quietly, the little app has been working hard to connect friends, couples and families around the world. LokLok allowed close people to communicate in a more intimate way – turning the otherwise standard block of text lines into a vibrant message full of life, art and personal touch.
Here at LokLok we draw our ideas and inspiration from our users. They showed us that LokLok not only helps to keep in touch with the beloved ones, but also serves as a means of artistic expression, a digital post-it board and even as a productivity tool. So we thought, who could tell us better stories about LokLok than our users? This is how the idea of LokLok Storytime was born.
LokLok Storytime is a series of posts in which we are telling stories about our users and how they are using LokLok. The one to begin the series is Najique Gayle, 22, whose amazing drawings we found on Twitter.
“My name is Najique Gayle and I am from Kingston, Jamaica. I’m 22 years old and I work in customer service and study part time at the University of the West Indies.
I basically learned to draw from watching my friends in school, tutorials on YouTube and Tumblr posts. However, in the end everything comes down to a lot of practice. To be honest, I didn’t think I was that good before, so I just stopped. But recently I started drawing again as something to pass the time when I was bored at work or just at home with nothing to do.
I use LokLok mostly to do little drawing for my girlfriend. Sometime we would create grocery lists, little reminders for stuff and the like, cute lovey-dovey and good morning doodles. We even did a little challenge where we had a draw off based on random Wikipedia articles (shout out to the Drawfee channel on YouTube :).
I use the app on my Google Nexus 5 and draw with my finger. The app is so smooth and simple to use, I fell in love with it instantly. I started using it when it first became available on the Internet, and have been happy with it since”.
