You told us... we listened! And now round-abouts is in the best shape it's ever been!

Over the past few months we've been travelling across the UK asking what you thought of our app and you gave us some great feedback. What you loved, what was missing, what could be streamlined. And the constructive comments we had have led to some exciting new features and refinements for round-abouts! 

THE app for frequent travellers and those always on the go, now with:

1. Auto-grouping – All going to the same event? In the same place at the same time as more than one contact? Create a group, get chatting, make plans - it couldn't be simpler!

2. Group chat - Choose to chat altogether or individually, it's up to you.

3. Easier contacts listing - Easy navigation through the two contacts screens. Find new contacts on the round-abouts network or invite friends to join directly from your address book.

4. Time field - Let your contacts know EXACTLY when you're available. Add a time to your round-abouts events and make scheduling your meet-ups even easier.

5. Invite - As well as looking for overlapping plans, you can now invite your contacts immediately to your round-abouts events.

How it all began...

 Making Meeting Easier

Making Meeting Easier

Hello!

We thought you might like to know how round-abouts came to be and why we felt it was so important to develop the app.

It all started when Director and Co-Founder Estera Sutton found herself alone on business in the US:

“The idea for round-abouts came after a real-life missed opportunity. I had been away in the States and discovered – once I had returned – that I had been just a couple of miles away from my sister-in-law! Had we known in advance, we would have made arrangements to meet.

That wasn’t the first time it had happened to me and talking to friends and colleagues, it seemed that missed opportunities like this were actually pretty common. Not only in our social lives but professionally too. At conferences and big conventions scheduling meet-ups is always a complete pain. It takes forever to organise and relies on you knowing who'll be there and when. So many times I have bumped into an old colleague in a lobby or a customer at the airport and wished I’d had more time to chat.”

Estera and her like-minded friends and family decided to look for an app that would help them avoid these missed opportunities in the future… and discovered there were none! So, they formed a team, made it happen and round-abouts was born! 

Last month the app became available to download and now everyone can find out if their contacts will be ‘round-abouts’ the same location as them. Try it for yourself - download it from the App Store or Google Play and tell us what you think, we'd love to know!
