Wonderful App

Making family time is really difficult when you are a businessman, but make no mistake, my family is really important to me. I always try to make time for my wife and children and all the special occasions related to them. Most of the time it is easy but sometimes it’s just impossible to get in time for the events. One such thing happened when it was my daughter Anna’s Annual parents Day.  She was performing the lead role in the play. I had motivated her to take part in the play. She had become dependent on me for inspiration and encouragement.

I wasn’t in the city at the time of the show. My daughter was really upset about this. She wanted me to be there to watch her perform. I had recently downloaded the Postagain app. I knew what it was used for. I asked my wife to download the same app. Through this app, I was able to interact with my wife during the whole program. My wife uploaded pictures of the various events and performances. I could comment on these pictures and post my own responses in return.

My daughter’s performance was very special to me. My wife made a video and uploaded it. She had never used the Postagain app before so she didn’t know how to use it, but a very brief explanation was enough. Later she said that the interface of the app was self-explanatory. I could get the fully detailed view of my daughter’s performance without any hitches. After the performance, I chatted with my daughter in the live chat room. She was very happily surprised that I had seen the entire performance. When I praised her for the different parts of her performance, she was laughing with delight. We exchanged pictures, I showed her the place where I was staying. She showed me her fairy dress, which was really pretty.

This app was a joy to use. It helped me get in touch with my family when I need it the most. I am very thankful to the people who created this app.

Doing some cooking!!

Staying away from home in a hostel can be a frustrating thing. One gets tired gets of the mess food. I really missed my mom’s cooking.  I had often tried to cooking something but I always ended up with burnt food on my hands. I could never get the things right. I asked my sister to help me out. She told me about Postagain. She said that I could use this to take help from our mom. I didn’t understand what she means at first and then I went through the app features myself. There were various forms of interactions. I saw that I could upload pictures and make videos. There was also a live chat room.

I told my sister to download the same app on mom’s phone. My mom is not a very knowledgeable person. I thought it would take some time for her to learn to use the app, but to my surprised she learned very quickly. After exchanging a few greetings in the live chat room, I told her about my cooking problems. She laughed a lot about this and then suggested a solution. She made videos of her cooking and uploaded them for me on Postagain. I was able to access the videos through the content named, “Cooking Tricks”. My mom had chosen this name. She also posted the pictures of her recipes. This helped me a lot. I improved my cooking and began to make some excellent dishes. I posted the pictures of my dishes. My mom also commented on my pictures. She was very proud of me. Slowly other people discovered the content and they also began posting their problems.  My mom suggested simple tricks to help them in cooking. Long conversations began to take place in the chat rooms.

My mom was idolized in that group. She was very happy to help everyone. Other people posted their cooking videos and the pictures of their dishes. Slowly the content became a small community. My mom later said that it feels very good to be a part of something important. Postagain helped us form this community. It is a great app.

It’s Eid!!

Living away from home in a foreign country is often advantageous but at other times, it has certain disadvantages. For example, whenever there is a festival, you don’t get to be with the ones you love, you don’t get to enjoy all the joyous moments with the family members and so on. One of these events is Eid. I live in Boston and I am a Pakistani. On the eve of Eid, I was sitting alone in my apartment, missing my family member. I thought about the fun they would be having right then and the next day.

After a couple of hours I received a call from my fiancé, she asked me to download an app named Postagain, make a channel and access the content called “It’s Eid”. I asked her what this was for but she just said you will find out soon.  I did as she had asked me to, I discovered that all my cousins had family members were posting pictures of that content. They were commenting on each other’s pictures and making fun of each other. I posted a picture of myself and everyone began to welcome me. They said that they had planned this for me. We chatted with each other in the live chat room.

The next day one of my cousins uploaded a video of all the family members wishing each other. I was able to get a full 360-degree view. The video was very detailed. I loved each and every moment of it. I also got ready and uploaded a video. I didn’t feel lonely anymore. It was really nice to see everyone smiling and wishing each other. My brother uploaded pictures of our house, they had decorated it a day earlier. My fiancé was looking very pretty, she asked me how I liked the surprise and I said that I had loved it. I didn’t feel like I was away from my family because it felt like I was there among them.

Postagain is an incredible app. It has so many benefits. I use it almost every day to chat with my family.

The Tour

My wife and I were leaving for the world tour in a few days. We very excited. I had always been a traveling enthusiast. I had planned the tour very carefully. We would be roaming most of the African countries. I wanted my whole family to come with us but we could not afford it at that moment. But I still wanted to share all my visits with my family. For this reason,I downloaded the Postagain app. I also downloaded this app on close family members and friends’ mobiles.

Everyone came to leave us at the airport. Our first destination was Cape Town in South Africa. We roamed the traditional markets in that city, our travel guide was a very nice woman. I was constantly clicking away pictures on my mobile for two main reasons. The first was that I wanted to save the memory of everything and the second was that I was constantly uploading pictures on the Postagain app. My family was accessing the pictures through the content that I had named, “My dream tour”. We also went to the Cape Point, which was famous for the meeting of the two oceans; the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean. My children were also uploading their pictures. In other cities, we saw the African traditional culture. I made a video of the traditional Xhosa Dance and uploaded it so my friend could see the African dance.
A very small country located in South Africa is Swaziland. I uploaded pictures of its enticing natural beauty. My family and friends were ‘wowing’ on the pictures through comments. We also chatted every night to inform about our plans for the next day. The following week we left for Cameroon, to check out its famous caves. Our next visit was to Ethiopia, I had always heard about the famine problems there. One of my friends was a social worker, she had asked me to take pictures and send them to her for her social work blog. She was a philanthropist, she was very sad to see the situation. After visiting Nigeria we went to Egypt. The museums of Cairo, its sand dunes and pyramids were the main attractions. We bought many goods from the Cairo market; everyone selected what they wanted through the pictures we posted.

When we returned home everyone was happy to see us. The tour had been one of the most memorable experiences of my life and I was glad that I got to share it with my family. Only the Postagain app made this possible.

The final match of Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant is my all time favorite basketball star. My brother and I had watched each and every one of his matches of his entire career. Being one of his greatest fans we had to be there to see his farewell game. Both of us were desperate to get the tickets to his match, but maybe we were not lucky enough. I ended up with a ticket on my hands and he didn’t. He was happy for me and he said that he hadn’t wanted to go in the first place, but I knew better than to believe what he said. I wanted him to have as much fun as I would be having. I had read about the Post again app somewhere on the internet. I thought it could be put to test in this situation.

I downloaded this app on my brother’s phone without telling him. When I reached the court, I texted my brother and asked him to open the new app I had downloaded. I also told him to access the content named “The final match of Kobe Bryant”. The Lakers game was about to start.  I posted pictures of the whole court and recorded videos of the loud crowd. I was constantly uploading everything on the app. My brother was very excited to see this. My brother was commenting on these pictures. He was also posting pictures of what he was eating at home. Kobe Bryant was looking the idealistic player in the purple and gold uniform. I even got a close-up picture of him.

Soon other people discovered our content. They also began posting their pictures and videos of the game. We were sad when the Lakers were trailing the Utah Jazz. Some light banter was going on between the fans of the opposite teams in the live chat room. But the most important thing was that we were there to witness the glorious ending of Kobe’s career. He led the Lakers to victory. The black Mamba was leaving and I was happy that brother was not missing a moment of this.

Postagain is a really cool app. I use it almost every day.

First time using Postagain

Everyone knows anytime Pakistan and India compete in a cricket match it is a big deal. Tickets to the event can be tough to get but recently my brother was able to score one.  He was only able to get one meaning me and my nieces, his daughters, were going to be stuck watching from home without him. He told me about this new app called Postagain and asked me to download it to my phone before the game. He said it would help me, him, and the girls talk during the game and even though we would be watching from home. We could use the app to help us feel as though we were there with him.

 

So, I downloaded the app and he left for the game. Once he got there and got settled he started uploading photos of himself in the stadium. He even sent pictures of the guy sitting next to him. I started posting response pictures to what he was posting. I took a few shots of the girls and I smiling and being silly, then I uploaded them into our own album. Uploading the photos was very easy. I just hit the “post” button on the bottom of the app and I was able to capture pictures or video from right there. It even gave me the option to “Say something” about the pictures so I added captions like “Score!”, or “Boo”, to show when we were happy if something good happened during the match or our disappointment when our team was losing. We even took a few frowned face photos when the other team scored. As we uploaded our photos there were complete strangers liking and commenting on them. People starting commenting and including photos of them at the game and some others watching from home under our photos. Within just a few minutes we had 15 photos of other people that included views from within the stadiums and other people at home sharing their thoughts and photos about the game too. I added tags to our photos (e.g., Cricket, Pakistan v. India), which is what helped other people find us so quickly. One of the other users started a public chat room and we were able to discuss what was happening in the game real time.

 

Once in the chat room we were able to see more of the game with the 360-degree view. It was incredible! We really got to see the entire stadium. It was packed! The cricket matches between Pakistan and India are the most exciting and competitive, so of course there were plenty of India fans posting about the game as well, and rubbing their win in our faces, but to see the number of people at the stadium, and to get some up close and personal photos of the other fans, and even some of the rival fans, was amazing! My nieces and I were able to experience the energy at the game, even though we weren’t physically there. It was almost like we got to go with the game with him, but still wear our pajamas. Postagain made this a better experience and a lot of fun and I can’t wait for the next event so we can use it again.

First Time Using Postagain

I recently took my two nieces to their first cricket match. It was Pakistan vs. India. My nieces were extremely excited about going and I was glad I was the one to take them. I knew taking two little girls to a sports match meant I would miss out on talking to another adult about the game, but someone had told me about a new app called Postagain and how it was like a live social media app, so I thought maybe that would give me the opportunity to share the experience with others. I decided to install Postagain on my cell phone before leaving so I could try it out at the match.I invited a few friends to also download the app so there would be some people we actually know online while we used the app. In particular, I asked my brother, their dad, to install the app so he could see his girls having a good time at the game.

 

Once we got our snacks and spent a few minutes in our seat, I decided it was time to take pictures of my nieces and I at the match and post them to Postagain. I did. Just a few shots of them smiling and being silly, then I uploaded them into our own album. Uploading the photos was very easy. I just hit the “post” button on the bottom of the app and I was able to capture pictures from right there. It even gave me the option to “Say something” about the pictures so I added captions to show when we were happy if something good happened during the match or our disappointment when our team was losing. We took a few frowned face photos when the other team scored. As we uploaded our photos there were complete strangers liking and commenting on our photos. They were other people who were also at the match. People starting commenting and including photos of them at the game under our photos. Within just a few minutes we had 15 photos of other views from the stadiums and other kids who were at the game with their loved ones. I added tags to our photos (e.g., Cricket, Pakistan v. India), which is what helped other people find us so quickly. One of the other users started a public chat room and we were able to discuss what was happening in the game real time. It was a great experience for me as my nieces are young, so it was nice to talk to other grown ups at the game about what was happening. A couple of times I took the girls to the bathroom and recognized people from the pictures they posted. Thanks to Postagain we made new friends!

One last thing was with the 360 degree view we really got to see the entire stadium. It was packed! This is the most exciting and competitive cricket matches, the ones between Pakistan and India, so to see the number of people their and to get some up close and personal photos of the other fans, and even some of the rival fans, was amazing! It was great for my brother too. He was able to experience the energy at the game since he was apart of the public chat, even though he wasn’t physically there. It was almost like he got to go with the game with us, but still wear his pajamas. Postagain made this a better experience and a lot of fun; I can’t wait to go to another match so I can use Postagain again!
