Arrive uses Apple Watch to tell family and friends when you'll get there

in Navigation (E)

[] Prague, Czech Republic - Flow Studio's location-sharing app Arrive is a new Apple Watch app to keep an eye out for. Like any good Apple Watch app should be, Arrive is insanely simple to use. First, you set how long you want to share your position. Then Arrive sends an SMS message with a unique map link to one or more of your existing contacts (no need to maintain a separate list). The recipient can view this map in the Arrive app or in any browser until it expires.

Arrive is great for anyone who needs a quick, easy way to tell contacts where they are, including:
* People with busy schedules
* Parents checking in with their kids
* Runners and bikers who need to share their location during a race
* Friends trying to find each other at a crowded train station, concert, or sporting event

Arrive is the work of independent developer Flow Studio. Co-founder Petr Fodor got the idea for Arrive in a traffic jam when he messaged updates about his delay to a business partner. Existing solutions like Glympse or Life360 seem too complicated, while the Apple Watch offered a great opportunity to make location sharing convenient.

"It's a consumer app to start, but we also plan to integrate Arrive with companies that provide food delivery, valet parking, and more - any service that can benefit from quick and easy location sharing is a potential partner," adds Petr Fodor about the plans for the future.

Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPhone
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 8.0 or later
* 9.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Arrive 1.1 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Navigation category.
