We have had some feedback that our recent FREE offering for handi2 got to users in harms way. We hope that the many others who downloaded it took the time to donate the $4.99 regular price to the American Red Cross or any other recognized charity.
While balancing running a business with our social responsibility core beliefs, we have lowered our price for handi2 from $4.99 to $2.99 until the end of September. Again we hope that those who take advantage of this price reduction and are not affected by these disasters will consider a donation.
For those affected; we hope that our apps may help you and at least minimize the stress of providing documentation for your losses.
etrenomics offers iOS app handi2 for free on Sept 7&8.
We are a small, family startup with a vision to help home/apartment owners not only document their home inventory but to actively maintain it. The key word is ‘help’. We have decided with our investors to offer our $4.99 home inventory app, handi2, for free. With it you can document up to 50 items on your iOS mobile device and be able to provide documentation to FEMA or your insurance carrier immediately.
While intended to help those in the path of hurricane Irma to quickly document their home/apartment contents, we are placing no restrictions but ask that if you are not affected by Irma that you consider a donation to the US Red Cross at least in the amount of $4.99.
The price adjustment has been submitted to Apple and should take affect later today and will be a FREE download on Sept 7 & Sept 8.
Our sincere hope that those in Irma’s path protect their lives and loved ones (and please don’t forget your pets).
Our hearts go out to all those affected in this historic storm event in Texas. We encourage all to donate as they may through verified charities on the WEB. This will be a long process to rebuild…for now we must take care of our brothers and sisters and their families…provide them with the basics of food, clothing and most importantly, hope and dignity. We have our challenges in our country but we also do have our moments of greatness… let’s choose to be great.
We are very happy to report this exciting week of downloads for us…we have learned that summer is a slow period for iOS app downloads so this is great news. Also, we have added our 8th new country among our download destinations – the UK! Thanks and WELCOME to our 464 NEW users!!!
We are happy to announce that our first paid app, handi2, has been released and is available on the Apple App store. handiLite has also been updated including a data export function that will allow Lite users to send their data to handi2. Our on going commitment to provide Mobile-based, Active Home Inventory apps is gaining attention in the app store.
We are also happy to share that, for the first time, we exceeded 250 new downloads in 1 WEEK! Those downloads represent users in 7 countries.
handiLite Home Inventory app to Adopt NFC (Near Field Communications) embracing the Internet of Things (IoT).
Embracing the concept of creating apps that “work for you,” we are starting the integration of Near Field Communications (NFC) into our apps. We envision that this will expedite the initial setup of appliances by instantly providing Manufacturer, Model and serial number, the rest of the important data – purchase record, dealer contact, warranty contact information will be entered as it is now. However, we will have an eye on the future and envision a “NFC handler app” that would run and work in concert with our app. We see opportunity in the integration of NFC into our soon to be released COMMERCIAL version that would provide landlords with multi-site, multi units rentals interesting capabilities. This may also apply to small business owners and Medical clinics.
Free Home Inventory Automation with the latest handiLite Release: v1.6!
Adds data record Change Alert and Saved location selection
Since our April 8th launch, we have continued to improve the user experience on our free app - handiLite. Conceived out of the necessity to keep their homes running and possessions documented, handiLite continues to penetrate the home inventory application market segment as a truly innovative application differentiated through functional utility never before seen in such an app.
The fundamental design goal was to provide near-desktop functionality on a mobile device. To achieve that goal, we set ourselves in the mindset of a typical user. What are the on-going issues in running our home and its appliances, systems and equipment?
Documentation for the purpose of loss; whether through theft or a loss event.
Have certain information available to support buying parts or to find information on the WEB (manuals/ how-to videos).
Keep notes and set calendar reminders for periodic maintenance - power equipment oil/filter changes, damage replacements, etc.
Incidental to all of these issues is the ability to quickly view or PRINT the information. Imagine the catastrophic loss of your home to fire, tornado or flood. Having everything with you on your MOBILE device will be a significant jump on the recovery effort.
For this v1.6 release, we have included two features from our COMMERCIAL app development specification:
Data record Change alert - monitors any changes to a data record and alerts the user if they try to exit without saving.
Location is now entered from a separate view controller where all existing locations are presented as selections or a new location may e entered. This assures data uniformity and speeds data entry.
Home Inventory + fast & accurate parts/manuals, calendar reminders and Printing all from your Mobile Device!
Keeping Insurance/Warranty Records is just the Start!
handiLite was created to provide users an active management tool for the operations of their homes/rentals/vacation properties. Able to capture photos, dates, descriptions and contact information, handiLite takes all that “home inventory” data to the next level. And that next level is putting it to work for you with 1-touch WEB access. Not unlike what we all do almost daily — jumping onto the WEB to buy or find something. Able to locate the correct parts/information (from stored info) almost instantaneously, handiLite is THE Go-To Tool to help you run your home…or apartment…or workshop…or sports equipment collection…
Users (close to 300 users registered on www.etrenomics.com) from 7 countries have shared their unique application of handiLite beyond home inventory…a user in Europe is tracking his botanical efforts with plant hybridization; another user captured his expensive baseball equipment and yet another, his extensive fishing tackle collection. One user has his Air Jordans documented for posterity.
Whether to support a traditional loss event with your insurance company (sure is nice knowing that you can print most everything directly from the app) or to keep notes, create calendar reminders (when did you last change the oil in the mower?) or quickly replace inkjet cartridges (how many printers do you have?) handiLite is available immediately.
Being based on mobile devices — assure that you will always have access to this data…what sense would it make if you still used out-dated desktop inventory apps and run the risk of loosing your computer to a home catastrophe…chances are you will always have your mobile device. And, with cloud backups, a totally lost mobile device can be reconstituted in hours…how long would it take to rebuild your desktop/notebook computer…(where are those install discs?)
