VELUXE Launches App to Deliver Health & Beauty On Demand
The “on-demand economy” continues to flourish this week as our DC neighbor and super-hostess/writer/insider Susanna Quinn (@susquinn) launches the answer to the question, “How can i get in shape and get gorgeous right-now-without-leaving-home?”
Joining other on-demanders in the Washington area like MunchQuick (and of course one of the first, Urgent.ly), VELUXE promises “beauty and fitness simplified” by letting VELUXE “make your busy lifestyle more manageable with our on-demand beauty and fitness app delivering professional hair, makeup, and personal training services right to your door!”
We think this is awesome – we’re all incredibly busy, without always finding time to squeeze in a yoga class or personal touch-up. Now we can sit back and wait for the gym and salon come to us. Some call it the democratization of luxury; we’ll just call it cool.
To play along, grab the iPhone app here. And as always, if you need a tow truck quick and on demand use one of our apps:
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.
