24me: Calendar, To Do List, Notes & Reminders - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Both founders (Liat and Gilad) are Computer Science graduates with a background in technology for the past +20 years.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging aspect of developing the app was the user interface and design. How to build a product for users that is rich in features, while keeping it very intuitive and friendly.

Liat is the Co-Founder and CMO of 24me, an award-winning Personal Assistant platform which is named by Apple as ‘Best of App Store’, and featured by Google, Apple, Amazon and other leading media outlets such as CNN, Time, Money Magazine and more. Liat was selected as one of the top 100 female entrepreneurs in Europe, and also listed as one of the 50 most influential women in Israel by Globes Magazine. She holds a B.A. in Computer Science from the IDC Herzliya Israel, where she graduated from the first Entrepreneurship program founded by Sam Zell (Chicago). Liat also holds an Executive International MBA from St. Louis University in the U.S. Liat is a keynote speaker in international conferences, bringing her vast experience with boosting productivity and managing work-life balance. She mentors startups, and is involved in global initiatives to promote women in tech.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

One of my favorite apps is Bazaart, a beautifully crafted app for photo editing. I am using it for creating cards and editing photos. It works like magic.

Another app I love is Simply piano, a great app for learning piano. My kids had an old lady who came home to teach them piano. Because of Covid-19, they can’t have these lessons and this is where Simply piano took place. It's a really wonderful app.

Another great app is Lingo Kids, which I use to teach, my baby. I really love this app.

How long have you been working on this app?

We have been working on 24me since 2013, and during the past two years we have been working on another amazing app which is going to change the way how shared calendars work. This is GroupCal app (available on the app Store), and soon you’ll hear some wonderful news about it.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Managing the schedule in one place through a feature-rich app.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

There are many great apps for time management, and I’ve personally tried dozens before I started building 24me. As a busy mom of four who manages a career in tech, I really needed something that will keep together both my personal and my work schedule and will help me remember all other tasks and errands that I need to accomplish.

When I could not find something like that, I started building 24me together with Gilad. The core difference between 24me any and other productivity apps in the market is in its holistic view of time management. It holds a calendar that brings together all your calendars. An Automatic To-Do list, which helps complete tasks with our unique concept of “Completion buttons”. Notes, which allows capturing thoughts and ideas easily, and connectivity to other apps that pulls relevant personal reminders. This eliminates the use of multiple apps. In addition, 24me has smart alerts that help any individual keep their head on top of things: from agenda for tomorrow, to “Procrastination Fighter” which helps you find an open slot on your calendar to get done with overdue tasks.

24me is available for both iOS and Android platforms, and always the first to adopt the new OS features.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We are always the first to adopt the newest OS technologies and other unique features that ease the use while people are on the go. For the coming future we are planning to add more automation for completing tasks easily, and some more enhancements for communicating with your calendar while on the go.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

New users who are reading this page are welcome to reach out and tell us about their experience with 24me, and how they find it helpful. We would like to know if there are things we can improve, to make the experience better. we are always open to hear suggestions!
