[prMac.com] Natchez, Mississippi - iVite, a new app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, brings E-vite functionality to the iPhone. iVite is the simple and fun way to send invitations or reminders to your friends, family, and co-workers.
Unlike other apps, iVite's revolutionary delivery system allows the user to send events straight to their friend's device (rather than by email) and notify them by push notification. Once accepted, the event syncs to their calendar! Creating new events or sharing one or multiple events already in the calendar is quick and easy. Users also have the ability to choose from 4 different event and invitation types with more to be added with the next update.
Zach Jex, who co-founded INOV8, explained where the inspiration for iVite came from:
"We heard people ask over and over again, 'Why can't I send calendar events by text message?' Surprisingly, there was no app that allowed a user to create and share events between devices and immediately notify the recipient. Other apps try and send invitations by email, which end up getting lost or unread. Our system delivers the event straight to the recipient's home screen, and then syncs it to their calendar once accepted. You are guaranteed to reach your target audience."
Trey Guerieri, INOV8's other member, added, "The beauty of iVite it that it takes e-vite creation from the web and brings it to your phone. Who wants to sign into an online account and create an elaborate invitation for a lunch meeting or a small party? iVite creates a new event management paradigm by making it simple, quick, and useful for everyday events."
