SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- To make it even easier for K-12 teachers to communicate and keep in touch with their students, Remind101, has launched two new mobile apps. The new apps for Android and iPhone give teachers who use Remind101 expanded and more flexible ways to access the popular teacher-student messaging system, and makes it easy for teachers who don't have ready access to computers in the classroom to safely communicate with students and parents.
Until now, to send messages to their students using Remind101, teachers needed to use a Web browser on a desktop or laptop computer. The new mobile apps bring the power and convenience of Remind101 to mobile phones, so that teachers can quickly send students and their parents timely homework reminders, field trip updates, schedule changes, motivational messages, and information for upcoming parent-teacher conferences. The apps also bring new features to the platform, such as the ability to schedule messages for later delivery, access to message history, and more.
"Teachers have embraced mobile devices in the classroom, so we're making it really simple and easy for them to use their mobile phones to access all the great Remind101 features," said Brett Kopf, co-founder and CEO of Remind101. "With the new apps on both Android and iPhone, teachers can use Remind101 to send a message when they're in the classroom, on a break, or while commuting. We're starting to see teachers in BYOD and 1:1 classroom situations use the apps as their primary method for classroom communication, which is really exciting. They tell us that Remind101 boosts engagement with their students and their students' parents."
