DoubleScoop is out of the Gate

April 25, 2012

It has been a year since I started working on DoubleScoop. Now, it’s finally ready to roll. We are all very excited about what we ultimately created. But the big question is whether people outside our little office on top of the beauty shop will be excited, too.
Over the last 12 months, we have spent hours discussing and debating the best way for our app to connect kids with their grandparents. While our small team has plenty of differences of opinion, we clearly have a shared passion for our goal of connecting kids with grandparents. I think one of our team’s strengths is that each of us feels very strongly that the role of a grandparent in the life of a child is extremely important, and that helping to build this relationship through technology is worthwhile.
So one year later, this is DoubleScoop: DoubleScoop is an app that connects grandkids and grandparents. Interestingly, I had thought that apps only worked on iPhones, but it turns out they can work on pretty much anything. Our app currently works on normal computers (laptop or desktop), as well as iPhones, iPads and iPods. Android will come later. After setting up an account, a grandparent and kid can use whichever device is available, and send each other photos, stories, drawings and voice recorded messages. My kids have loved ‘testing’ this, and both girls highly recommend it. I like it, not just because I work for DoubleScoop, but also because it is extremely safe to use, and my kids are doing something meaningful with technology.
If you have a chance to give it a try, you can set up an account for free at http://www.doublescoop.net. Let me know what you think. And now, back to work.
