GoButler Launches iOS App To Help With The Holiday Hustle (Consumer)

Dec. 1, 2015, 9 a.m.

GoButler, the digital personal assistant service, today announces the launch of an iOS app to complement the company’s SMS-based platform. The native iOS app builds on GoButler’s recent success by providing a high-quality user experience that adds numerous features including seamless payments, one-click image sharing and suggested purchases that enhance GoButler’s current platform.

GoButler’s new iOS app provides an improved user experience featuring content-rich messages. In celebration of the holiday season, GoButler will also be rolling out product suggestions offered as part of an automated Holiday Gift Guide. The Holiday Gift Guide will include over 15 gift recipient categories (including mother, son, girlfriend, baby, grandfather, etc.) at six price point ranges ($20-$50 | $50-$100 | $100-$300 | $300-$500 | $500-$1000 | over $1000). Users will be able to select their recipient, browse through the curated gift lists and order directly within the app -- all with the tap of a few buttons.

Built to complement rather than supersede GoButler’s SMS-based services, the new app introduces an exclusive suite of features and abilities:

  • Messaging and image sharing - users will be able to send messages and images with faster processing time
