Just in Time For Valentine’s Day – An App Called Twyxt

Many of you are not aware, but I have found the man of my dreams, well so far he appears to be that man ;-) We have been working on blending our family together, the great news is that our combined five children have personalities that get along 100% .  Blending the kids together during the visitation schedule my boyfriend has is easy, it is the adult part of things and kids activities, schedules and so forth that gets us adults overwhelmed! As we near Valentine’s Day it seems that there has been a free app called Twyxt created to help keeps couples in sync better.

Currently my boyfriend and I use text messages to keep track of our kids and work schedules. I work from home so I am easily found head into the office most of the day, he works outside of the home about twenty minutes away. I have three kids, he has two kids. Mine are in extra curricular activities and one of his is in cheer leading. You see? We need to communicate daily through text message and do not know what each one is up to after work because our kids have such hectic, involved lives.

With an app like Twyxt being used, I would no longer have to wonder if he has his kids that evening or has to run to finish up some of his storage packing runs, or pick up his daughter from cheer. I would not have to wonder if I have to meet him or his kids somewhere to assist. With an app like Twyxt, the boyfriend and I could easily plan our days by simply looking at this app. Also when we want to send silly pics of our day to each other so as to keep each other motivated, we can do that in our own private app messaging center. Sometimes we just text each other our moods such as “blah” or “yippy” because we both are complete dorks! Having Twyxt to show emoticons in a more creative away would make us smile during our hectic work and parenting lives, which in turns continues to build on our amazing relationship.

What is Twyxt all about you ask?

Put together a calendar shared by you and your loved one so that each of you can easily monitor and note when kids have their special events, you have that webinar or he has that company conference. All in one app, in one place from your iPhone. It’s easy to communicate, stay on partner status with each other and simply have fun, loving conversations through out the day using Twyxt.

Twyxt is a private way for you and your loved one to share pictures, moods, lists, notes and messages all in one easy to access place. No more losing your private husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend pictures with all of those pictures your kids took on your iPhone. Consider Twyxt your app to keep you connected in a loving way and continue to build on the perfect relationship you and your loved one have.

Twyxt was born by Co-Founder Roman Weishaupl who realized that his {now ex} girlfriend was keeping an ongoing journal of their text messages. There was a need for a dedicated space for a journal like communication combined with the ease of sharing schedules and pictures with your loved one in an app base. That is when Twyxt was created with four other founders.

I keep telling all of my friends that there is “an app for that” and each working day I have as a blogger, I find new fun apps that totally make me realize that there may just really be an app for everything!

Social Media is Addicting?

I truly think Twitter can be addicting but others may see Facebook as addicting. I mean I can get on both social media sites from my home PC, my laptop, and my Blackberry Curve. All three products allow me to stay connected to the social media world virtually anywhere I go. I could be in the grocery store shopping with my children and tweeting on Twitter from my smartphone!

When is enough enough? Don’t get me wrong, I totally dig social media and all it has done to open the doors to my blog and my business as well as my work at home income, but overall social media can be a disease that takes over a person, allowing them to further ignore their family and in turn creating a monster!

Think about it, if a person gets addicted to pills or alcohol or illegal drugs we step in and say something. Do you step in and say something to a friend or family member you feel is addicted to social media? Would you tell them that they need to seek help from their physician or counselor?

I honestly love my smartphone, I think it’s a useful business tool, but that is exactly what my Blackberry Curve is … a business tool. This is not a toy, this is not something that has to be in front of my eyes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Gosh I swear the work at home person tends to put in more overtime than that work-acholic parent who works outside of the home in a job! It is time we sit back and truly think about the endless hours we spend on social media and ask yourself if that time could be better spent with your family?

I know when I am in the grocery store shopping with my three kids there is no way I could have my smartphone in my face typing away on Twitter or FB while actually still keeping an eye on my children. Could you imagine how bad a parent would feel if their head was so far into their smartphone & social media tweets or status updates that they lost a child? I know I would be devastated and I would never want to touch a smartphone again.

I think we are all diving into social media because it connects us not only on a business level but on a personal,  community type level with our peers, but remember who your real life friends are, remember who your family is and remember if you know someone who is addicted to social media to speak up and let them hear your side about the subject, sometimes all an addict needs to hear is that there is a concern and they will be able to work on changing their habit in a way that is more healthy for themselves & their loved ones!

What do you think; do you think Social Media is addicting? Do you feel too many of us are on it for more hours than we should be? Would you tell a friend if you thought they were addicted to Twitter or Facebook?
