What Are Twists and Why You Need Them
Twist and shout. Like the name of the company, the app suggests that you ‘twist’ and shout, which means that you leave shouts in the form of notifications called ‘twists’ to people with whom you have a meeting arranged. That’s simple: you set all your meetings and arrangements in the app’s calendar, and the app tracks your progress to the site of your appointment through GPS. Once you have left off and started your journey to the destination, the app sends a ‘twist’ to the person who is waiting for you. They also get notified when you are late and when you are very close.
What is Twist made of? The app combines various features that can be helpful in tracking your location, communicating with people, and making predictions on your arrival time. Therefore, Twist is a mix of GPS, calendar, photos, SMS, traffic maps, etc. With the app, you not only save people’s time, but you also take pictures of places you are in, and you have a possibility to share your whereabouts via Twitter or Facebook.
The Latest Version
