Summon Auntie now lets you chat with other car drivers. But remember to watch the road
June 27, 2012 by Terence LEE
If you’re cruising on the road and spot another car with a flat tire or the flashlights on, there’s now an easier way to inform the driver.
Summon Auntie, an app by Singapore startup Replaid that lets users warn one another when a parking attendant is nearby, has just implemented a new feature called NotePlate for version five of the app.
NotePlate, which first existed as a separate app, enables users to send text messages to fellow drivers who are nearby. All they need to do is key in the license plate of the car, the message, and press the send button. However, the prospective receivers must also have Summon Auntie installed in their phones.
While it’s certainly an interesting feature, we hope drivers will be careful when using the app and not get too busy flirting with that hot chick in the next car.
But if you feel you’re responsible enough, you can download the app from iTunes or Google Play.
Founded in 2010, Replaid is a mobile development company that has developed apps for the iOS, Android, and the web. They were funded by Spring Singapore’s Yes! Startup scheme.
