“Living alone is linked with increased chance of mortality

Loneliness kills. That’s the conclusion of a new study by Brigham Young University researchers who say they are sounding the alarm on what could be the next big public-health issue, on par with obesity and substance abuse.”

Announcing WithMe 2.0 for iPhone and iPad!

I’m excited to announce that WithMe 2.0 for iPhone and iPad is now live in the AppStore!

Highlights of the 2.0 Release:

  • NEW Visual Messaging: Send and respond to messages anytime with just a few taps
  • Enhanced Check-In: Visual Messaging integrates with the Daily Check-In for richer, more dynamic interactions
  • Actionable Alerts: If you loved one misses a Check-In, easily call or send a text to see if they are OK
  • Support for International phone numbers
  • Improved sounds and control over notifications

WithMe 2.0 combines social interaction (simple Visual Messaging) and supportive functionality (alerts are sent if a Check-In is missed). With the addition of Visual Messaging, we feel WithMe 2.0 is both easy to adopt/use and provides a compelling ’sticky’ user experience. WithMe is the easy way to stay in touch every day!

The new iOS v2.0 app is compatible with current versions, and the Android 2.0 version is in the works.

WithMe is a great way to connect with family over the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend!
