Remind 101 Launches an Android App

Back in May Remind 101 released a free iPhone app that can be used to send text messages to groups of students and parents. Today, Remind 101 released a free Android app for the same purpose. Just like the web version and iPhone version of the service, Remind 101 on Android is an opt-in service. Students and parents have to enter a confirmation code to state that they do want to be contacted by you through the service. Remind 101 keeps phone numbers hidden so that the parties cannot see each other's numbers. Learn more about Remind 101 in the video below.

Applications for Education
The Remind 101 Android app could be a good tool to use to keep students and parents informed of important information about your classes. You could use it to send reminders about assignments, use it to send encouragement, or use it to send praise for a job well done on an assignment.
