Simple but brilliant idea for an app! My girlfriend is always late for meetings and I can think about a lot of better things to do than waiting for her. Now there can be solution that will make everyone happy – new Location-Based App called Twist (currently available only for iPhones).
The idea is simple: if you’re running late, Twist will text pre-determined contacts and let them know when you’ll arrive. You simply set up destination point and the app calculate your Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) based on routing, real-time GPS data and traffic info. You can share this information with your friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and family automatically or on demand. You can as well request ETA from users that you’re waiting for.
The app also gives some extra goodies, like the ability to share photos from your route and get access to Yelp reviews and Google Street views of your final destination. I imagine that the photo-sharing feature could be really cool especially when I’m getting mad waiting for my gf;).
