It’s the Little Things: Like Being Featured On Stage by Apple

In case you haven’t noticed we’ve been pretty busy lately: signing up lots of partners, improving our library of products, growing the network – startup stuff. So we think we can be excused for overlooking being noted in somebody’s presentation.

In case you haven’t noticed we’ve been pretty busy lately: signing up lots of partners, improving our library of products, growing the network – startup stuff. So we think we can be excused for overlooking being noted in somebody’s presentation.

Except … except when that presentation is on one of the world’s biggest stages by one of the world’s most powerful and beloved companies.

It was just the other day at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference right there on stage (about 42 minutes in) when Jennifer Bailey, Apple vice president of worldwide online stores, highlighted apps “among an incredible group that are redefining new and simpler ways to pay.”

And who was there in the middle? That’s right :-)

Thanks for the eagle-eyed friend of Urgent.ly for pointing it out. And thanks Apple!

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.
