Cheer My Friend lets we motivate runners with voice messages


Another neat penetrate thought being demoed here during TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin is an app for assisting support runners during races by promulgation personal voice messages to keep them feeling motivated.

The Cheer My Friend app doesn’t need supporters to download an app in sequence to work — usually a curtain needs a app on their device. Then they share a couple with their support organisation forward of time — that lets friends and family record brief voice messages to be delivered to them during a race.

Runners will need to be using with a mobile device and headphones to accept a messages. A mobile connected smartwatch and earbuds would also work.

Built by a group of 5 semi-pro hackathon attendees who’ve flown in from Finland, presenter Tuomas Koskinen says a thought was desirous since members of a group are penetrating marathon runners and had used some existent support apps that interpret content to debate that they felt only weren’t personal enough.

“When we are unequivocally pulling yourself in marathon we need something some-more human. The thing is we are there in a outrageous throng of people and we don’t unequivocally know any of them since everybody’s using their possess competition and they are there for their possess reasons. Especially pledge runners don’t have that personal support. That’s a categorical emanate that gathering us,” he says.

Another component he pronounced they’d hoped to supplement was a runner-tracking map perspective to uncover supporters where they are in genuine time. Sadly they ran out of time for that — but Koskinen says they really wish to keep operative on a project.

Their website for a app is Cheermyfriend.com.
