Why in a globalised world only make this available in the US? Is there a reason? Thx
David Iwanow@davidiwanow · Seo Manager, Global Deployments
@a12rj i know it often comes down to cost but yes this annoys me a heap.... it also limits the potential reach...
David Iwanow@davidiwanow · Seo Manager, Global Deployments
@a12rj yep no value to me if just iOS... but hey it makes sense to ignore 80% of the potential mobile audience doesn't it?

@a12rj We have plans to go international ASAP. However, in the beginning we needed to keep things as simple as possible to make a stable product so we limited things to the US.
Tom PageMaker@thomaspage · CEO, Badger
@davidiwanow @a12rj It is more expensive to do texts abroad, however, that isn't the reason we haven't done that yet. It's more to do with creating more variables that can go wrong, when we just wanted to nail the 1st iteration of the product.

@davidiwanow @a12rj We're not ignoring the majority of the market. We laid out plans from the beginning and when you are a small startup you can't do everything. We'll have the android out in June.

Very nice idea I needed it @thomaspage ! Is there an android version planned ?
Tom PageMaker@thomaspage · CEO, Badger
@sandochee yes we will have the Android version out in June. I will message you when it is out.

This app is pretty simple to use. I really like how the recipient of the reminder receives the reminder as a text message. Everyone checks their sms.

I like the idea of an app that manages automated sms reminders but not sure about the push notification as that requires them to also download the app
Tom PageMaker@thomaspage · CEO, Badger
@davidiwanow I don't understand what you are saying. Can you explain further please?
David Iwanow@davidiwanow · Seo Manager, Global Deployments
@thomaspage so I see the platform as a SMS assistant for me that doesn't require the other party who might not have an advanced phone to download an app
Tom PageMaker@thomaspage · CEO, Badger
@davidiwanow Reminders are sent as SMS right now whether you are reminding others or yourself. I'm still not 100% sure if that answers your question?

The most common use cases for the app are: 1) Reminding people to take their medicine (daily) 2) taking out the trash (weekly) and 3) paying bills of some form (monthly). e.g. paying the rent or mortgage. Our goal is to build a utility.
