Several launches have been made to date in the couple-sharing mobile application space. While most of these applications revolve around photo sharing and mapping memories around the course of a couple’s relationship, SimplyUs, a new app recently launched on the Apple Store, is out to make couples more contented by adding a little orderliness into their lives.
The idea for SimplyUs came to be when co-founder Jonathan James realized that while he was well-organized at work, he and his wife were always having trouble coordinating their schedules, especially about stuff they had to work on together. As a consequence, SimplyUs’ focal point is built around a joint calendar and lists.
Using the app is fairly easy. It works by making entries into the users’ existing calendar systems either from within or outside the app – like Google Calendar, for example. It then synchronizes all updates made. The app also has a list function tha t allows couples to add to-do lists, such as a shopping list. And just like those that came before it, SimplyUs has a photo-sharing capability. All entries into the app can be commented on, allowing users to leave annotations as they append or delete entries.
SimplyUs may have been designed with couples in mind, but James sees greater possibilities for the app. SimplyUs can potentially develop into a mobile tool for families, social groups and small business teams.
