iPhone App…Coming Soon

August 8, 2012

A few months ago we asked the question on our Facebook Page: “Would a iPhone and iPad app excite anyone? We want to hear your thoughts.” The question received a good amount of positive feedback.

When creating the app we evaluated a lot of  variables like; the benefits of a true mobile app, push notifications, app specific content, and even paid or free app. We are big fans of free content! In 5 years we have never charged a dime for content posted on and we have every intention of keeping it that way.

But, iPhone apps are not cheap and neither are graphic designers and programmers! So, we are introducing the app at a low price of $1.99(USD). If the pure expense of creating and developing the app isn’t enough to justify the $1.99 price tag, we have also built-in the function of app specific content. Meaning, we will be producing special content that will ONLY be available through the app. This content will be value driven for the user. Content that is beyond the normalcy for We are also working with Funeral companies and suppliers to offer discounted product and specials that will be released in article form only in the app.

Users who download the app will also have the option to set up notifications. Your iPhone will send you a notification when a new article is published to the app. You will be able to get notifications by category as well (ex: you will be able to set the notification to only happen when an article is posted in the Pet Services category).

The app is currently being reviewed in the iTunes app store. We are hoping the process only takes 7 – 10 days like iTunes estimates. Believe me, it will be announced here as soon as it becomes available.

Here are a few app screenshots:
