Urgent.ly Gearing Up for Apple Watch

Like most of the free world we’re kind of excited about today’s announcements around Apple’s new Watch. Many services are already finished with app development. We’ve been tooling with designs ourselves for how Urgent.ly might operate within the wrist-based devices and shared some early sketches here.

Like most of the free world we’re kind of excited about today’s announcements around Apple’s new Watch. Many services are already finished with app development. We’ve been tooling with designs ourselves for how Urgent.ly might operate within the wrist-based devices and shared some early sketches here.

You can see above we’ve moved ahead a bit and believe consumers will want the benefit of feeling the same peace of mind customers of the mobile app feel when they see a map with a truck coming to help them. There’s also the benefit of seeing your driver’s identification to afford even more of a sense of security and confidence.

So again, stay tuned for more as we create new and better ways to get you help when and where you need it.

For now, that help can be gotten through our current apps:

Urgent.ly for iOS 

Ugent.ly for 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.
