App Blows Out ; On-Demand Economy Continues Blowing Up

We deal in blowouts all the time, but not the kind involving beautification of quaffs – we leave hairstyling to the pros, like on-demand app newcomer VELUXE and the just launched Blowdry Taxi.

We deal in blowouts all the time, but not the kind involving beautification of quaffs – we leave hairstyling to the pros, like on-demand app newcomer VELUXE and the just launched Blowdry Taxi.

The latter is the latest DC-area startup to jump into the personal, on-demand beautification business. According the DCInno, “Blowdry Taxi has about a dozen, mostly full-time stylists on-call for appointments between 6:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. whether booked weeks in advance or within less than an hour of ordering a blowout or any of a rapidly expanding range of hair and other style services.”

Founder Sona Sut (@Sonauzb) describes it as a “blowout bar that comes to you.”

So welcome to the on-demand party, Blowdry Taxi (@BlowdryTaxi), and keep in mind that if you have the other kind of blowout Urgent.ly is standing ready – in DC and across the country.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
