First and foremost, let's take a moment and thank our veterans. These men and women are some amazing individuals and deserve all the respect, compassion, and love in the world. My wishes and love go out to each and everyone of them <3
I'm not actually an "app" person. I really use my phone the least amount possible (except for blog reading!). But I was asked to review a new social app called Band! Why not give it a try and see how it is? I actually think it is a pretty cool concept and can be pretty useful. Let me fill you in on exactly what Band is and what it does:
+ Band is a group communicating app that allows you to stay in touch and organized with groups of people in your life.
+ You create groups with as few or as many people as you need. Make a large community for something you care about or a small group to plan for that holiday party. You add only the people you want. So you can make it a personal group or invite other strangers on band and get to know them!
+ Within each group you can instantly chat with everyone, set up lists and to-dos where you can keep track of what you need for a get-together or goals you want accomplished that everyone has access to, create polls and questions, calendars, file and picture sharing, really anything!
Actually, it is the perfect app for college students, families, and coworkers! (Really anyone can find a use!) You can stay connected with the people YOU want and not get information lost in all the chaos of other social media like Facebook, Twitter, etc. The Band app is perfect for organizing study groups, clubs, sports teams, parties, coworker meet-ups and projects, family gatherings, even bloggers wanting to work on a project together!
I can use it to easily stay connected with my family! We can instantly chat together and share photos. We can plan for our holiday get-togethers while we are all miles away! And if you have an urgent message or question to get out, instead of waiting for email replies or people to see you question in a Facebook group, they will be instantly notified by your message or new posting right on their phone. So hey, some apps actually can be pretty good 😉 Everything you post or do in your group is easily accessible and doesn't get lost in "the feed." Everyone's voices and thoughts will be read and seen so no one will be left out! With the group calendar (which I think is the best!) no one can say they forgot or have an excuse for being hours late! O, and this is a free app which just doubles the fun! Am I right? 😉
So tell me:
+ Have you heard of or have used Band before?
+ What groups would you create using Band?
+ What are some of your favorite apps? (Besides Facebooks, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest!)
