About

When we started drafting ideas for Notifyou, it was because we wanted a better way to be reminded of tasks without having to rely only on time based or fickle GPS reminders. We all live in a world where we need to remember things, yet the current options are not as helpful as they could be.

The Story Behind Notifyou -

All of this started when we made a trip to Seattle to visit one of our daughters. On her front door was a sticky note reminding her to take her laptop charger with her to work. This made us begin to wonder why we still need to resort to something like a sticky note on a door as a reminder when we have smart phones constantly on us. Wasn’t there something out there that could replace those little sticky notes? So, we began looking at the current solutions out there and quickly realized that the only way to get the features we wanted, was to create it ourselves. And so, Notifyou was born! It is the integration of a smart phone reminder app and the latest in location based technology, iBeacons.

How Notifyou Works -

Notifyou is a combination of a purpose built phone app that allows you to set reminders for yourself and others. The app allows you to create networks which can include your family, friends & colleagues. You invite people to join each network, and then users within the network can set reminders for each other. The Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacon, which is the hardware part of Notifyou, provides the location based alerts to the App on the phone.

And setting reminders is super easy! All you have to do is pick the user, pick the beacon, and then create the reminder. When the person is close to the beacon, it will send out a signal to their phone and the reminder will pop up on their screen.

Notifyou includes an iBeacon and a free phone app, which when used together, makes setting reminders super easy.

Available for Both Android & iPhone!

The Notifyou iBeacon

iBeacon are small  devices that send out signals which allow mobile apps to understand their position on a micro-local scale, and deliver content to users based on location. The communication technology is powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

A link to a short video that explains in more detail how iBeacons work - "What is iBeacon An Animated Guide"

Now that you know the basics of iBeacon technology, may we introduce you to our awesome Notifyou Beacons! Don’t be fooled by how cute they look, they’re actually very sturdy and efficient! Here are some of the reasons why you will love them:

How To Use Notifyou In 5 Easy Steps -

1. Setup your Notifyou Beacon Network - Front Door or Garage Door or Rear Door, or any location.

2. Invite friends and family to be part of your Notifyou Beacon Network using the Notifyou App.

3. Start setting reminders for yourself or your network using the App.

4. When you or the person you assigned tasks to is close to the beacon, it will send out a signal to their phone and the reminder will pop up on their screen.

5.Once a task is received, you will be updated to the status via the Notifyou App.

Notifyou Features - 

Creating Networks - 

One of the best features of Notifyou is that you are able to create Networks of Friends, Family and Workmates . You can have separate networks for each group and then invite others to join your network using text messages or emails. The best feature of the Networks is that any user within the Network is able to set reminders for others within the same network. For example, if you put a Beacon in your kitchen, and using your Notifyou app, you put a reminder to that Beacon for your daughter to feed the dog, she will then receive the reminder the moment she steps inside the kitchen.

This can also work well in an office environment for work colleagues.

Notifyou Beta Program -

Project Status and Timeline -

We have been working very hard for the past few months in developing Notifyou and we are now in the final stages of production. The Kickstarter campaign aims to connect with backers who are interested in Beta Testing the Beacon (See Beta Testing option above). We would like to get as many testers as possible to ensure that Notifyou becomes the best reminder app. The product is set to launch in September of 2015.

We Have Been Working Hard!

We have already begun development of the Notifyou App and below is some screen shots of the UI and layout.

We have development .apk that we are running on both iPhone and Andriod and I have taken some videos of these and you can see them from the links below. ( sorry they are not great quality )

Risks and challenges

Risks & Challenges -

Notifyou Application - we have the application development underway and as you can see from the video above. We will continue this process and with the great partners we have in Agileinfoways PVT. Ltd we feel very confident in the app release by December/January 2016. We will be running Beta testing with our early adopters to test the app and work on any bug fixes needed.

With the Application there can be unforeseen issues that may occur that could delay the final publishing of the Application. We are developing for both Apple & Android and each application store has requirements that we must meet. We will work to meet all there requirements but there is always a risk when depended on others to approve.

Notifyou Beacon - We have a supplies in place for our beacons and also have a network of other supplies that we can call upon if required. The programming and setup needed for the communications with the Notifyou Application is completed at the Factory and the supplier has provided us a number of samples that we have tested and will continue to test as the Application is finalized. We feel that we are working with great suppliers and that they will be able to meet our stock requirements and shipping needs. We can control such things as weather and third parties that maybe cause delays but we will work to limit this as much as possible.
