Attigo – Never forget to send a message again!

Over the last few months, in what little spare time I’ve had, I have been working away on a new app, which I’ve called Attigo (which is a Latin term for ‘I have arrived’).

Attigo addresses the issue that many of us have faced in life where we’ve been told to send someone a message when you get home, only for you to forget once you walk in the door..  With Attigo, you can create an alert, tag it to a location, pre-write your message, choose your recipients and you’re done.  Once you arrive, you will receive notification reminders to send the message.  By tapping the reminder or relaunching the app, the message is automatically produced, ready for you to hit send and get on with opening your post!

Pending Alerts

Currently, the app allows for SMS and Emailing.  Future features will include Facebook integration, automated SMS/Email (so no need to hit send yourself) and more!

Attigo has been released for Windows Phone ahead of other platforms.
