Remind101 Releases iOS App
A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article outlining Remind101 and its awesome communication tools for teachers, students, and parents. Brett Kopg, founder of Remind101, was kind enough to drop by and clue us in on an upcoming release of Remind101 for iOS.
Well, today is the day that the app hit iTunes. For information about the service, check out my post here. Below you will find some information about the app.
The web based version of Remind101 already provided teachers the ability of safely and securely contacting students and parents, without the need to physically have their contact information. Their recently released app just makes it that much easier for educators to make contact with students and parents, even while on the go.
Information from iTunes:
FAST, SAFE & EASY
*Message your entire class of students or parents in seconds.
*Teachers never see students’ phone numbers. Students never see theirs.
*Students and parents join by sending a text message. No computer needed.

I have heard from so many people I trust that Remind101 is a great service. I use it myself and couldn’t be happier. Sign up for a free account, get the app, and keep in touch with your students and their parents.
