TrueFit Keeps Pumping Out More Apps!

TrueFit, a leading innovation firm which helps entrepreneurial start-ups and large enterprises bring new product ideas to market, and Act Right Productions LLC, a Nevada-based technology company, today announced the launch of the Timed Text app for iPad & iPhone. The Timed Text app allows users to schedule timed text messages at specific dates and times. Unlike more simple reminder-oriented apps, Timed Text ensures automatic delivery, once date, time, and contact are selected. The Act Right Productions team partnered with TrueFit to conceptualize the screen by screen flow, look and feel of the app, and to develop a smooth, easy user experience.

A unique feature of the app includes the ability to send texts even when the phone is in the ‘off’ position. Users can view scheduled texts, and set up schedules for future texts. The owners of Act Right Productions, Eddie Canonico and Mike Clark, noted, “Our goal is to help users schedule important notifications in advance. There are countless examples of how Timed Text can be valuable, such as a happy birthday or anniversary, wishing congratulations, remembering a business meeting, and many others. We’re very happy with the TrueFit team. We are excited to work with them on future iterations of Timed Text, as well as other app concepts.”
