iPhone App Review – Wedmate

Wedding planning can be a difficult time for a newly engaged couple. Lots of things to think about such as venues, outfits, catering, guest lists and so much more. You want the day to go as you planned and for it to run as smoothly as possible. Wedmate, a new iPhone app has just launched which will help you every step of the way to ensure your wedding day goes as you want it. The app takes away your wedding stresses and enables you to get the help of your friends and family to ensure your special day is the wedding of your dreams…

Here’s is how Wedmate can help you plan your wedding:

Schedule your events

Wedmate enables you to create events for all the dates for your wedding celebrations. Starting from your stag/hen parties all the way up to the big day itself. You can invite guests and participants to the specific events and they will receive an itinerary for each specific event. This is a great feature which makes sure everybody involved knows exactly what is happening at each event.


Weddings can be very expensive so keeping to a budget can be very difficult and knowing how much you spent on everything. Wedmate enables you to set budgets on all the things you buy or book so you can keep a track on how much you have spent, and if you have enough money left to go all out on the reception party.

Group Chats

Keeping everybody informed about wedding ideas can be difficult. Wedmate helps you keep all your chats in place so nobody is left out of the loop. Wedmate asks for your participants mobile numbers and you’re ready to get chatting about all your wedding ideas.

Wedding Gifts

Receiving gifts on your wedding day are always special, but you don’t want to receive the same gift twice. Wedmate helps you create your wedding gift list where you can specify what you would like. The guest is given a link of where to purchase that gift, and once it is purchased it is taken off the list so you don’t receive duplicate gifts.

On the day

Your wedding day is here and everything has (hopefully!) gone to plan as you had wished. Your guests are having a great time and have taken lots of pictures of the beautiful newlyweds. Your guests can upload their photos onto the app so that you can keep these memories as part of your wedding day. Priceless moments that are with you forever…

Wedmate is a great app that will help you plan from the start all the way through to the wedding day itself. It is like your personal wedding planner which keeps all your events, ideas and conversations in one place.

3 tips for creating a great App

There seems to be thousands of mobile applications across multiple platforms. From apps that change the way you live to simple games that help you pass the time on your daily commute…

Here are 3 top tips on creating your own app…

1. Design is everything

When thinking about an idea for an app you have to think about how it will look and feel for the user. The design and user interface will need to be very simple and engaging to ensure your users come back for more. Take more time on your design than its features. Users want a simple feel to their experience.

2. Do one thing well

Whether you want to create a game or a simple utility app, ensure you do it well and go all out. Whatever you decide to create make sure you do it well. Don’t try and complicate things by trying too many things in the app. Simplicity is key and doing that one thing well will make for a killer app.

3. Persistence is key

Don’t give up with your idea. Keep going and don’t stop. Standing still is a big no-no in the app world. You need to keep improving your app with updates. Look for the bugs and fix them. Continuously learn about your app and improve it regularly. This will help make sure your app is on top and can’t be faulted by your loyal users. Don’t give up and keep going…

To make sure people keep coming back your app and tell their friends, follow these tips and you’ll have a killer app..

I have an Apple iPhone and recently they announced that they have 100,000 apps on their App Store. This just shows that their is 100,000 reasons why I have an iPhone. I cannot live without my iPhone and now that their are more apps on the App Store shows that I cannot go for another phone.
