More – Notifications For Those You Owe

  • February 9, 2011

IOUTicket.comSeeing friendships go sour over something such as money is truly disheartening, yet it is not really that strange. And in most cases, things go wrong owing to nothing but a lack of communication. One thinks the other is ignoring him, when the person is really aware of the debt and will pay it whenever he has managed to get the money together.

But getting carried away and thinking that one is being had is just too simple, specially when he badly needs the money back. It is a situation that can never be fully resolved. However, there are apps like I Owe You available – apps that might just stand as the key for avoiding unnecessary confrontations.

Essentially, users of I Owe You will be able to create (and deliver) tickets to their friends making it clear that they have not forgotten about the money they owe them, or these items that they have to return.

These tickets are created for free, and they can be delivered at a set frequency, too. That is, if you want to be 100 % sure that your friend is getting the message you can send him one weekly notification after the other until the money has been paid, and keep him fully pacified.

  • February 5, 2011

YOMTicket.comYOM (You Own Me) is a new online ticketing platform that you can use to remind any friend or family member that owes you money of the debt that remains to be fulfilled. The idea is to let you all get even, without risking to sound overbearing or angry at him other for not having paid the debt sooner. A You Own Me ticket works on that level since it is a simple reminder that is sent via email, and that is as neutral as one such communication could possibly be.

These email notifications can be scheduled for whenever you want, and at the frequency that you see fit, too. You can have daily, weekly and monthly reminders send out.

And there is no registration process of any kind to go through. Tickets are created directly, using a simple interface that lets you specify how much (or what) is owed to you, and by whom. When the ticket is ready, you just activate it and it will be sent out when the time comes.
