On-Demand is the New Black
Yes, in many ways the subscription economy is what’s in vogue today. Today, subscriptions have evolved and reach far beyond the days when it was just magazines, newspapers, and milk. With subscription binge-watching through Netflix, subscription car-driving through Zipcar and even subscription cooking through Blue Apron, it would seem that the way to go nowadays is to just plop in your credit card info to sign up for a subscription, and have a good or service always accessible on your computer, or consistently appearing at your front door.
But with all of these subscriptions out there, do you wonder whether you really need them, or whether you’re getting as much out of them as you’re paying in? There are so many subscription goods and services out there you could be throwing money away for things you don’t even use. Some people don’t even realize they’re paying for these subscriptions! Most offer a free trial, and users who sign up but never even use the service are likely to forget about it - and forget to cancel that trial before their cards are charged!
With the demands of a modern life and the ease of electronic management of accounts, it’s challenging to manage so many accounts. But there’s an app out there that will do it for you! Truebill will find and track all of your paid subscriptions, allowing you to view and manage them from one convenient location. With just a few clicks, users can even cancel subscriptions through Truebill!
Truebill says that 25% of users request a cancellation of a subscription after signing up with Truebill, and those who do save an average of $512 annually! Woah, just imagine what you could do with that extra $512! Best of all, Truebill is totally free. Sign up online, or download the app for free on iOS or Android.

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.
