Messaging just got an upgrade, and we’re all going to love it
The story of Homer, the messaging tool that will declutter my world and yours.
There’s something about messaging as we know it that irritates me. If your friends are like mine, planning what we are going to do after work, or school is a nightmare and it usually takes place on various platforms like Whatsapp, iMessage, or Facebook Messenger. The conversation starts and suddenly I’m stuck in the middle juggling all their requests, and running them by each and every one. When someone makes a suggestion, I have to go through the hassle of checking FourSquare and/or Yelp, navigating through dozens of apps to check out movie listings, showtimes and restaurant reviews. Not to mention locating these places and determining if everyone is ok with the suggestion, and if it’s close to where everyone is. And if only one person says no, I’ll need to start all over again. You know how technology is supposed to be there to make our lives easier? Well, it’s starting to do the opposite recently. This is the story of how and why we built Homer Keyboard. It was born from the need to declutter our lives, and build a tool that would make communicating with others easier, smoother, and less stressful. I think you’ll agree with me that there are a lot of things in our day that we need to figure out, such as meeting up with family, hanging out with friends, going out on dates, or planning important business dinners. This is where Homer Keyboard comes in. It’s a tool that focuses on context, and makes conversations flow smoother by keeping everything in one place. It was made so it can blend in with people’s everyday conversations and means of communication without breaking the normal flow of things.
