SynkMonkey addresses a growing problem among consumers who are increasingly challenged to manage calendars and events across dozens of applications while on the go
Charlottesville, VA. (PRWEB) October 06, 2011
MoonBall Labs, the developers of SynkMonkey, today announced the release of a unique iPhone app that provides a simple, seamless way to schedule and organize events with any mobile contact via data and text messaging. SynkMonkey combines three crucial features - texting, mapping, and calendar - to produce the most efficient one-step planning tool available. By allowing users to reach any of their mobile contacts, regardless of what phone or calendar program they have, the app has reduced the significant number of barriers to connecting with friends and contacts on the go. The app has been initially released on the iPhone, with plans for expansion to Android in the ensuing future.
According to comScore, approximately 22 million Americans own iPhones, up 75 percent from last year, and over 100 million iPhones have sold worldwide. At the same time, 70% of all U.S. mobile subscribers (or approximately 164 million people) used their phone to send a text message.
According to CEO Hunter Murchison, “Everyday consumers around the world are becoming more reliant on their mobile phones to stay connected, and we have designed a highly intuitive, user-friendly app that allows users to meet and organize their mobile contacts in a way that was never possible before. SynkMonkey addresses a growing problem among mobile consumers who are increasingly challenged to manage calendars and events across dozens of applications. The platform was designed to serve as a natural, easy extension of how mobile phone users interact with their contacts over text to make plans."
SynkMonkey’s sleek and powerful interface is easy to use while on the go, similar to sending a text message. Each dedicated event text contains information about the date and time of the plans, an invitee list with attendance status, a map to the location, reminder alerts, and group messaging abilities.
All of SynkMonkey events are stored in the in-app calendar, which also integrates with the phone's native calendar, so that all of your upcoming plans and their details are one touch away. Group messaging allows everyone to stay in the loop and any changes made to plans update instantly across everyone's calendar. While invites are sent as data to other SynkMonkey users, non-SynkMonkey users receive a special text message containing a url for a unique website that has all of the relevant event details where the recipient can RSVP.
SynkMonkey is FREE to download and is available worldwide in the iTunes store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/synkmonkey-rally-friends./id459115077?mt=8).
