The BabyNotify application can be used to inform friends and family about the arrival of a baby. Usually, when people become parents, there is so much to do including notifying various people about the arrival of the new bundle of joy. However, leaving things to the last minute can be overwhelming and may not probably be the best idea. This is where the BabyNotify application is able to provide a system for providing timely notifications when the baby arrives. Notifications can be sent through Twitter, emails and text messages. Facebook pages can also receive updates including the baby's first picture and information about the gender of the baby. While new parents are euphoric, excited and probably overwhelmed with joy about their new arrival, they do not need to worry about calling each friend or family member individually to notify them. BabyNotify uses the notification list that was previously created and performs the task of notifying friends and family of baby's arrival.Show more screenshots »
The arrival of a baby creates the need to keep people informed and BabyNotify is popular regarding satisfying this need. Andy and Summer Schwarz-Gulley created BabyNotify in 2010 when they discovered that they were going to be first-time parents and needed a way to keep their firends and families informed in an organized manner about the arrivial of their baby. Andy and Summer began creating a list which gradually grew in size. A smaller list may be easier to manage. However, as lists grow, the advantage of the BabyNotify system surfaces as it is able to manage notification deliveries to many people. Once lists have been created, notifying people on the list is quick and easy.
The BabyNotify app is specifically targeted at pregnant women, their families and others who are expecting a baby. The system was developed to fill a void that existed in the area of baby notification systems. There was no application which allowed lists to be created specifically for use in notifying people about the arrival of a baby. Hence, the BabyNotify system creates an orderly approach to information dispersion for new arrivals to a family. Other applications that provide information do not target a list that focuses on baby announcements. On the contrary, the list created on BabyNotify has a specific purpose and this purpose is to notify people upon the arrival of a baby.
The BabyNotify website looks baby-friendly. It is easy to get a feel for what the site is about. With soft colors and appropriate imagery, BabyNotify immediately presents the user with access to create their list and also clearly specifies how notifications may be sent. There is a clear menu across the main page of the application that provides access to a Sign Up page and access to additional help. The Sign Up page is brief and can be completed within one minute. Terms and conditions are also provided for users.
BabyNotify requires users to sign up before a notification list can be created. A simple form is provided to the user where names and a password are used to identify the new account. Once users acknowledge and accept terms and conditions associated with the the BabyNotify application, an account is created. New users will then use their email address and newly created password to sign into the system and create a baby arrival notification list.
There are no costs to use the BabyNotify system. There are no price plans or pricing structures. Users simply sign up for an account, create a notification list and when the time to notify friends and family arrives, the account owner can send notifications with a single click. BabyNotify can also integrate with other applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Outlook, Gmail and Yahoo at no cost to the user.
BabyNotify is a helpful tool for those who are getting reading to make an announcement about the arrival of a baby. Initially, people may think that the number of people they need to notify will be quite manageable. However, lists can grow. Even for short notification lists, BabyNotify can provide assistance to busy parents as they welcome a new baby into their lives. Hence, BabyNotify will be recommended to anyone who wants an easy way to provide information to a group of people about the arrival of a baby. After the baby has arrived, BabyNotify can also update Facebook pages with baby pictures and other information. It does seem somewhat simplistic. Perhaps future versions of the application can consider other related notification possibilities or optional features too.
