Ripple Mobile's OnTime mobile calendar app sets new standard among time management tools
DUBLIN, Ohio, Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Imagine a mobile calendar application that runs in the background of an existing computer-based calendar program to help increase productivity, keep the sales force on time for appointments, and bolster a user's standing with friends and family. Ohio-based Ripple Mobile believes it's possible. By leveraging its productivity software, the company developed OnTime, a mobile application launched today making it easier for people to manage their calendar and busy, hectic lives.
"We know timeliness, personally and professionally, has a direct impact on a person's reputation," said Kevin Miller, president and co-founder of Ripple Mobile LLC, a technology innovation firm that powers and creates secure, technology-driven applications for mobile devices. "We believe with the OnTime application, users will never be late to business meetings or important appointments again."
According to Miller, what makes OnTime different from other reminder services is the mobile calendar application's location-based capabilities, allowing users to determine time and distance from any location in real time.
"OnTime runs in the background of users' smartphones," said Miller. "By determining their location, OnTime provides timely appointment reminders to ensure they get to appointments, events and meetings on time." OnTime is secure and has minimal impact on battery life.
OnTime syncs with all existing computer-based calendars and enhances how users already organize their life and task lists. The patent-pending mobile application provides many features, including adjustable turn-by-turn directions, phone-based GPS capabilities, and social media connectivity. It even provides real-time traffic analysis, notifying a user's next appointment if they are running late.
"OnTime helps busy people by bundling multiple productivity software tools into a single app," said Miller. "And because it works with their existing calendar, there's no new software to learn or buy."
As 2010 winds down and New Year's resolutions ramp up, OnTime is launching at the right time. Research shows of all resolutions people make only half will stay committed after six months and less than 10 percent after a year. Managing stress and time is consistently among the top 10 list of resolutions, and according to healthfinder.gov, common causes of short-term stress are having too much to do with little time and getting lost.
Early adopters of OnTime can purchase the app for $1.99 until April 1, 2011, and for $4.99 thereafter.
