Remind101 Unveils Long-Awaited iOS App

One of the most popular web tools being used in classrooms today is not necessarily about learning. It’s about communication. Remind101 is a free way for teachers to communicate via text message to parents and students using the custom reminder system. Check out the first article about Remind101 from back in September 2011.

It’s a great tool developed by brothers Brett and David Kopf, a pair of innovative thinkers looking to bring some common sense solutions to your classroom. What could be better than that?

    This is one of my favorite apps!! I use it for quick and easy communication. The “schedule for later” feature is SO handy!! You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. :)

    Hey Ben, we don’t operate in Australia yet, only the u.s. and Canada. Sorry!

    Jena, thank you!
