GroupMe

by Meghann on May 30, 2012

I’m losing track of days this week. Is it really Wednesday already? Oy!

Lunch was simple and fantastic.

A 2-egg breakfast taco with the added bonus of sundried tomatoes, spinach, goat cheese, and walnuts.

Yes, walnuts in an egg scramble. They were a last minute addition, but added a nice crunch and nutty flavor to the “taco.” They also totally worked with the other add-ins. I would recommend it. :)

On the side I had some raw green beans. There’s nothing more refreshing in the summer heat than cold green beans.

GroupMe

This isn’t a new app or anything (I’ve used it a few times in the past during group vacations), but I did recently re-discover how awesome it is and figured it needed a shout.

GroupMe is an application that allows you to add a handful of friends or family into a set of group text messages. If you don’t download the app, the messages are sent right to your normal SMS inbox and are delivered through a single phone number. Each person is assigned a name and you would reply just as you would a normal text message. The message is then sent to every person on the GroupMe list. If you download the app, you can opt to just have the messages sent through the app exclusively (and not worry about wasting texts from your plan if you have a limit).

This app is great for vacations with friends (as we discovered in Vermont), when planning a bachelorette party (I recently created one for Kelly’s!), or just messing around with friends.

Courtney created a GroupMe for our XP Multisport team last night and, at first, there was a constant steam of text alerts as everyone had a good ole time going back and forth, playing with the newfound technology. After the initial craziness wore off (and there wasn’t a message every 30 seconds), we found that the tool does come in handy. We’ve already put it use with planning for upcoming events and just letting the teammates know in advance that one of us won’t be at practice. Brilliant.

Do you have any apps that have recently caught your attention and are worth sharing?
