Create and Publish Your Own Mobile Wedding App with Appy Couple
In the mobile world, where no one does anything without a smartphone, it’s about time someone came up with a really useful service that makes keeping everyone informed about the wedding easy, practical, and beautiful.
Enter Appy Couple, the hottest new wedding planning iPhone/iPad app.
Face it, a mobile app for your wedding is so much cooler than a website—although they give you one of those too, just in case you need it.
It’s easy to use the app. Simply go online to appycouple.com, choose a design, and create an account. After that, it’s just a matter of adding info in their really well thought-out interface, uploading photos and filling in event details. It’s all real-time, so you can check out how your app looks every step of the way.
Appy Couple incorporates cutting edge technology throughout their whole system. Simple things, like being able to drag and drop Facebook contacts into your wedding party circles without posting anything to Facebook, have been integrated in the process by their team of master engineers.
Even more importantly, the Appy Couple team has taken great pains to get into the heads of couples in the midst of wedding planning purgatory… and done everything they can to smooth the way.
For instance: there’s plenty of scope for your fiancée to exercise her creativity and make sure even the app coordinates with her theme. She can choose color swatches, add music selections linked to iTunes, create an unlimited number of guest polls to ask anything from “What should we eat?” to “Who will catch the garter?” There are scores of designs to suit every wedding style. And of course, you might want to get in on the action too…
Appy Couple makes communicating with guests easier and more fun as well. You can shoot out a save-the-date to everyone as you add them to the guest list, and send an email about how to join your wedding on the Appy Couple app. The system is built to handle it, so you don’t have to bcc hundreds of people.
Guests can upload pictures to the app in real-time during events. That means no headaches trying to get all the photos together after the fact. They can shop the registry with a tap, add events to their calendars, RSVP without using a stamp and map their way while on-the-go.
The app is always free for guests. And although there will soon be a one-time setup fee for couples, right now, Appy Couple is in invitation-only mode… and they’re offering GroomsAdvice readers the chance to get it free using this code: GASP1.
The only catch is that they really want your honest feedback about the service. So head over to appycouple.com, use your GroomsAdvice code & let them know what you think.
