I just received an email from a friend that a family member was interested in having a new app to blow up their dolls, the app was named Blow Up Dolls.
The app lets family members upload a photo of a doll to share, and then when it’s fully blown up it will send a text message that will be the first thing on the family’s phone when they wake up.
It will then automatically notify them of the doll’s destruction.
I contacted Uber to ask about the new app, and they confirmed that they are working on it, but couldn’t provide any details.
“We’re working on some other ways to enhance the experience,” a spokesperson told me.
The company told me that it had no immediate plans to update the app.
The Blow Up doll is the latest in a growing list of new apps that will send messages to family members when they’re awake, including a free app called I’m Sleeping that lets people send text messages while they’re asleep, and a free messaging app called Family Minder that lets a parent send a message to their child when they are not at home.
While many apps will automatically notify parents if their child is awake, the apps that are free, like the app that will automatically send a family notification, don’t.
But the app can be used to notify family members of any change to a family’s location.
“It’s very simple and simple,” says the spokesperson, “and it’s a really fun experience.”
Blow Up Dolls isn’t the only new app that uses technology to send messages that are meant to be heard.
Other companies are adding apps that listen to your conversations, for example.
I’m sleeping, a company called My Family, announced this month, will be able to listen to conversations that are being held in the background, so it can know what your family members are doing and where they are.
“If you’ve got some people talking on the phone and you’re not aware that they’re talking on your phone, you may be talking to someone you don’t want to talk to,” says co-founder and CEO Michael Kuehn.
“So that way you can get that conversation off the phone before they get it to somebody else.”
I’m a big fan of messaging apps, but I’m worried they’ll go overboard, says My Family founder Michael Kueshn.
I don’t have to worry about my family seeing my tweets or sending messages to me.
And, frankly, I’m tired of waiting for my phone to ring in the middle of the night, so I can’t wait for a phone call from my parents or the babysitter.
I also don’t like having to keep my phone on, so the app I’m testing won’t automatically wake me up if I forget to use it.
“There’s a lot of apps out there that I’ve used, but it doesn’t make me want to stay awake, so when I see something like My Family I just want to go to bed,” Kuehns says.
But he also cautions that the app may be an effective way for people to stay up-to-date on the world, because it’s not just about keeping track of their whereabouts.
“You might be on vacation and you need to get ready for the next thing that’s going on,” he says.
The app’s developers also say that the technology could be a good way for parents to be able send messages when they don’t feel like communicating with their kids, because there could be more things that need to be communicated. “
I think it’s an interesting use case, but the reality is, it doesn`t necessarily work very well for the average person.”
The app’s developers also say that the technology could be a good way for parents to be able send messages when they don’t feel like communicating with their kids, because there could be more things that need to be communicated.
“Kids don’t get into text messaging with adults, so if you’re talking to your kids, that could be really helpful,” Kueshns said.
“My Family’s mission is to be a place where you can talk to your child, and the way we’re going about doing that is by listening to what they’re doing and making sure that we’re not interrupting their conversation.”
I’ll be checking out the app over the next few days, and I hope to learn more about it.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the app, so send me a comment or send me an email at [email protected].
