If you’re reading this consider yourself in the know… It’s a good place to be right about now

If you’re reading this consider yourself in the know… It’s a good place to be right about now, since we’re finally ready to pull back the curtain on the release of our Urgent.ly iPhone app.

From now on when you hop in your car and head anywhere; send your son or daughter back to college by car; ask your spouse to run an errand at night you can do it with all with the confidence that comes from knowing we’ve got their backs.

Specifically, through our new iOS application we at Urgent.ly will always be  waiting nearby, ready to help. In the event something happens with your car (as happens to millions a year in the form of flats, dead batteries and so on), Urgent.ly partners are just a few taps away, and you can watch on a map as they drive to help you.

And if your child has a problem on the drive back to school, for instance, we’ve got you double-covered: while we head over to help them, you can watch our progress in the app on your phone - think picture-in-picture on your phone!

We’ll always be improving the application and will be sending out updates with new features, but as of today we’re ready for you to grab the free app, enter your info, and set your mind at ease. Because wherever you are, with Urgent.ly you’re in a safe place.

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.

We’ll get you back on the road
