*This is not a sponsored post. This is an app I genuinely love and wanted to share with my readers*
I don’t know about you – but I’m TERRIBLE at keeping in touch with people. A lot of my friends are people that I met at university – and now we’re all living all over the world and it’s hard to keep up. Life just gets in the way sometimes and I know a lot of you are in the same boat. Fear not my friends, I’ve found the perfect solution – the Weavyworld app.
We all have those occasions where we really need something that’s faster and more original than a traditional greetings card but a text or a tweet doesn’t quite cut it. Right?
What is Weavyworld?
Weavyworld is an one-to-one messaging app for your mobile. It uses creative and unique content to help you deliver your inner most thoughts and feelings instantaneously through short and snappy cartoon messages. Like e-cards but faster and more up-to-date with the times. Down with the kids, if you will. The folk at Weavyworld champion using art as an emotional currency – art speaks the words we need but often can’t find and I am ALL about that.
What’s so Great About It?
Anyone can receive a Weavy, even if they don’t have the app
You can send Weavys straight from your mobile to any device, anywhere in the world, even if they don’t have the Weavyworld app.
And you can prove it’s legit!
Weavyworld sends the recipient a notification so that they know they have received a Weavy. However, once it’s been sent – it gives the sender the option to send the recipient a text message (using iMessage or your standard text messagingapp) confirming that the Weavy is “legit” and safe to open.
This is one of my favourite features of Weavyworld. There are so many scams and dodgy links floating around out there and people are (rightly) skeptical to open links from companies or apps they may not have heard of.
The artists get royalties when their content is sent through Weavyworld. Working in the creative industry is difficult – as you have to rely on people not only loving and supporting your work, but buying it too. I love supporting other creative people so this app is perfect for me.
It’s quick and easy!
The process of sending a Weavy is SO much quicker than sending greetings cards – you can do it instantaneously and while you’re on the go. It’s as quick as sending a text, but at the end of the day a picture (or a Weavy!) speaks a thousand words.
So what do Weavy’s look like?
This is an example of how a Weavy presents itself on your phone. I’ve chosen a Pride Weavy because Belfast Pride is just around the corner. You can bet that ALL my friends will be getting this one on Pride day.
How Do I Use WeavyWorld?
Since I’ve downloaded the app – I’ve used it a TONNE. One of my best friends got engaged recently, so I sent her an engagement Weavy. Another of my close friends graduated from her PHD this week, so I sent her a graduation Weavy. There are Weavy’s for EVERY occasion with more being added regularly. I’ve even sent a few “just because” Weavys – they’re super cute and I can’t resist.
The team at WeavyWorld have created this video to show you just how easy it is to send a Weavy:
How Much Does It Cost?
Weavyworld is COMPLETELY FREE to download on Apple and Android devices. Each Weavy costs 79p to send (less than the cost of buying and posting a greetings card!). If you’re not quite ready to commit, there are a selection of freebies you can send too.
If you download and use the Weavyworld app – let me know in the comments section below. Also, if you have a favourite app – I’d love to hear about it!
Until next time!
