Nefo, The App That Allows User To Send Old Fashion Letters.
On July 31, 2014, the makers of NeFo, or “Never Forgotten,” announced a new application that connects people to their loved ones. It allows users to draft a letter on their mobile device, tablet, or computer, which will be printed and delivered to the person of their choosing.
Co-founders John Ashbaugh, Jared Tornow, Terence Martin, and James Quinn developed the NeFo app with their own friends and family in mind. They recognized that, although communicating via e-mails, texts, and social media is convenient, it can also be very impersonal. So, they created an easy-to-use app that bridges the the gap between traditional communication and modern technology.
“I suppose we noticed that this kind of program was missing from the popular app markets, and decided that it would be something that we would use in our own lives. We hope that we can successfully connect people on an more personal basis,” says Quinn.
Sending traditional letters can be time-consuming. When we go to our mailboxes, we assume that all we will find will be a pile of bills and advertisements. When was the last time you opened an actual letter from a friend or loved one? Or received a thank you in the mail? A text message cannot be placed on the mantle amid cherished photos. A Facebook message cannot be stored in a shoebox alongside letters to be read for decades to come. That simple note of apology. That letter of love. That professional follow-up after an important interview. What makes all the difference is the ability to hold these tokens in your hands. That is where NeFo comes in. No matter the location or time of day, the user can think of the occasion, open the mobile app, type, and hit send. The idea behind NeFo is a simple yet powerful one: turning thoughts into action.
“We are so very proud of what we have built,” stated Martin. “It’s not everyday you get to work with your friends on a project that could really make a difference in so many lives. This is a group of people that puts smiles on faces. That’s just what we do.” Next time you have a message that calls for more than an email or text, NeFo is the perfect way to ensure that your family, friends, and co-workers, are never forgotten.
