AboutOne to be released exclusively on Windows Phone

WP Central

AboutOne (official website) is a Philadelphia-based, Microsoft BizSpark featured startup that helps families securely organise themselves online or with the upcoming Windows Phone app. AboutOne CEO Joanne Lang will speak at Philadelphia's Women in Tech Summit, showcasing the service and app.

The event will see the launch of the beta version, which incorporates a year's worth of customer feedback. Lang explains what the Windows Phone app will bring to the mobile platform:

"AboutOne turns Windows Phone into a remote control for everyday tasks by adding online filing and reporting to customers' existing calendar and contact tools to provide fast, easy access to family memories and household paperwork. AboutOne automatically combines and formats this information so it's instantly useful - anytime, anywhere."

AboutOne App

The service uses patented technology that the company, which specialises in cloud-based computing, uses to:

  • Blend the power of business tools with the fun, user-friendly nature of popular social media apps.
  • Provides one central location, accessible anywhere, to manage family information.
  • Requires no technical proficiency to install and run, expertly handling data security so users don’t have to.

In easier-to-digest terminology, AboutOne allows users to organise memories, todos and household paperwork in a single accessible location. The service builds on calendar and address book tools the user is already using, enhancing both with document filing and reporting tools.

Looks really interesting, and is getting tons of good publicity from a bunch of media outlets.  Could be a big hit, will keep watching.

As a Windows Phone user and a Philadelphia resident and am quite pleased about this App. :)

HD7guy says:

Just might be what mt family needs. I hope they stick with the familiar Metro color scheme, though. I like green, but that is too much.

dainla says:

Is there a per month cost?  Because the screenshot says "try free"

JBau145 says:

There are Essentials (free), Premium ($45/yr) , and Premium Plus ($75/yr) versions. All come with different cloud based storage capacities and features.

CJ Thunder says:

Can't wait to see their Windows 8 app.

dinod says:

Any plans to become cross-platform? Most families I know (mine included) are not platform monogamous.

JBau145 says:

AboutOne launched Windows Phone first on 05/15/2012. Android and iOS platforms will be released shortly.
