Joe Rigney, Co-Founder Assure Technologies
As the founder of a startup, it is no surprise that I am a user of our app – WithMe.
But what was a real surprise to me is how WithMe has made me closer to my family than I have been in years.
I have to admit, I am not the most communicative son. While I know that some of my friends call their Mother every day, for me, every few months would be considered a lot. While I often think I should reach out more, life and time always seem to get in my way.
Then I started using WithMe, and now every day I get a message from my Mom, Dad, even my Sister. And I send them messages too! This lightweight system is easy to use. I don’t have to think of anything specific to say. Just a few taps on my phone and I am done.
How does it work? Every day I am reminded to check-in. I choose an emoji and pre-determined text, and send the message with just a few taps. Everyone who is receiving my check-in gets the message. And if I miss my check-in, my contacts alerted so they know there may be something wrong.
I really enjoy sending my Mom love or virtual hugs! And she enjoys receiving them as well.
But don’t take my word for it. The Holidays are here, and now is the perfect time to try WithMe with your family. It is made for smartphones and tablets, and is available for free!
