SameTime: Group Text Reminders App Built on Laravel
Published on by Eric L. Barnes
SameTime is a new web app by Tommy and Joey Marshall that will automatically send a text message to you and a group of eight friends on a designated schedule.
“We’d lament on a weekly basis how we wanted to wake up early or work out after work, but would keep sleeping in and watching reruns of Seinfeld.”, Tommy said, “We needed to keep each other accountable, but sending that “sooo did you do X?” text at certain times during a day wouldn’t happen because we’d either both forget or didn’t want to be annoying (accountability is hard). “
SameTime is perfect for anything that you and your friends want to be reminded about, workout, read, have lunch, etc. Another nice feature is everyone has 10 minutes to write a response that gets sent back to the group; this creates accountability for reminders like waking up and also prevents your group message from annoying you all day like most group texts do.
The app is free to use with no account needed and it’s built on Laravel making heavy use of its queueing system.
