Jessie Wins the iPhone 7!
Several weeks back we asked you all to grab your phones, open the Urgent.ly app, and enter the promo code ‘IPHONE7’ for your chance to win the latest Apple smartphone. Many of you did, but only one of you won. We caught up with our big winner Jessie recently, to see how her life has changed since her upgrade.
1. How did you first hear about Urgent.ly? How did you learn of our iPhone giveaway?
I honestly heard about Urgent.ly when I saw an ad on Facebook for the Hamilton contest...I'm a huge fan and wanted to win that contest! ;) I learned of the iPhone contest the same way, and honestly forgot that I had even entered until you contacted me! Haha
2. Have you ever used Urgent.ly for roadside assistance? If so, how was your experience?
Fortunately, I have not had to use the service yet, but I have explored the app some and really like it. It looks nice and it's easy to navigate.
3. Were you planning on purchasing the iPhone 7? What attracted you to the phone or made you want to enter the giveaway?
I was not planning to purchase the iPhone 7...I'm usually one of the last people in America to get around to upgrading my phone, so this was a really nice treat!
4. Are you enjoying your new iPhone? What's your favorite feature?
I am very much enjoying the new phone! So far I haven't noticed any huge differences from 6 except that it's faster...the camera is notably better, and for the first time I've been able to actually get rid of some of those Apple extras that come pre-loaded on the home page...usually you're just stuck with them. But I was able to organize my apps the way I want and clean up the home page, which is nice. I love 3-D touch!
Thanks Jessie, for letting us live vicariously through you for a few moments. Thanks to everyone out there who entered to win! Sorry that we couldn’t give everyone a new iPhone, but there will always be more contests and giveaways! Right now, you can enter to win a free DrinkMate. Just open the app, navigate to Promo Codes in the Settings menu, and type ‘DRINKMATE’ for your shot at winning - and $10 off any Urgent.ly service!
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.
