Since last week you have available a new version of the app dondeEsta Family. We are happy about it and hope you are too, because this new version includes suggestions that come directly from users, from families. You asked for it, and we did it!
What is new?
A completely new experience for kids and siblings. Now kids can see each other in the app and can send quick messages as “Pick me up” or “I’m OK!” Do you need your big brother to give you a ride back home? Now it’s really easy. You can let him now and he can easily navigate to you using the app dondeEsta Family.
You can also call all your family members easily. No need to look for their phone in the agenda! And you know what? All these new features are free. You can download the new version at www.dondeesta.com
Remember that if you have any suggestion or idea for improving the app, you can always write us at email@example.com and let us know. We take your opinion seriously and who knows, maybe the next version includes something that you suggested. This new version includes opinions that some families sent us!
Thank you for being part of dondeEsta Family!
Do you know Wally right? (Waldo if you are from the US or Canada).
Today, we were thinking, what would have happened if Wally would have had the app dondeEsta Family.
Imagine an afternoon “reading” Wally. You have been all day working and now you want to go have fun with him, maybe going to the beach, to the city, to the future..
So, you start looking for Wally. After 15 minutes, you start thinking that you need to put more attention on it, more willingness into it. You do. 1 hour later, you can’t find him. Your brain starts shaking and your heartbeat speeds up. ¿Dónde está Wally?
What if there was a way to find him? Well this was my thought today, I just wanted to share it with you! What I know for sure is that, if Wally would have had dondeEsta Family, his stripes would been orange instead of red.
Have fun and be safe!
Summer is almost over or already over. It’s time for BACK TO SCHOOL! This is exciting for kids and for parents: fresh energy after holidays, new friends, new teachers and new things to learn. “NEW” goes well with BACK TO SCHOOL. This is way at dondeEsta™, we launch a NEW way to know where your little ones are: dondeEsta™ Elementary School.
After listening some of your opinions, we realized that some families where asking for the same:
How do I locate my 13 years old daughter that has a smartphone and my 7 years old son that doesn’t have a phone yet, using just the same technology?
This is what we did!
We looked for the smallest device with the best GPS technology and integrated it within the same dondeEsta™ Family app. This way your 13 years old daughter can have the app dondeEsta™ Family in her phone and your 7 years old kid can fit in his pocket the dondeEsta™ Elementary School device and you will know where they with dondeEsta™ Family app.
We believe in Smart Safety.
This is why we wanted to integrate a device with the following features: small, simple to use (it has a panic button), with a good price, an excellent GPS technology and being at the same time: discrete.
We didn’t want your kid to go around with a flashy wearable or device. Your kid can put the dondeEsta™ Elementary School in his school bag or fit it in his pocket and be safe without showing a not necessary flashy and expensive technology.
Have an amazing Back To School time!
At dondeEsta™ we work for you and your family safety. We all have families and we all belong to the same family when we are at the office.
We are a passionate team pursuing the same dream:
MAKE A SAFER TOMORROW THAN TODAY!
Families from more than 145 countries trust in dondeEsta™, this is why we want you to know a little bit more about who works for the project and what they like about it. Let me introduce you to three amazing people:
Pol Gerbeau, Javi Alonso and David Soler.
The most amazing thing about working at dondeEsta™ is the great and dedicated people that work for the project, The TEAM! – Pol Gerbeau, Founder & CEO.
I love the startup enviroment! You feel like home, I got a cake when I started working for the dondeEsta™. – David Soler, iOS developer
What else can I ask for? I do what I like with incredible people around me! – Javi Alonso, CTO
When asking them what they like about the project, the answer is common: the idea of giving families peace of mind and helping them to feel safer. Helping parents to have more peace of mind and helping kids to have more autonomy.
Happy to be part of this adventure and happy to belong to this family!
Summer is here! We want you to have fun with your family and we want you and your family to be safe. This is why at dondeEsta™ we created the Summer Safety List! A quick and just to remember list of things to check before your summer holidays!
Be safe and have so much fun with the family!
It has been a while since last time we wrote the last post, but we come back with good news!
At dondeEsta™ we have fresh news to share with all families with kids that don’t have a smartphone yet!
We listen to you, to all families that use dondeEsta™ Family daily. Some of you have kids with smartphone and kids too young for a cellphone. How could you be connected using the same app?
At dondeEsta™ we have connected a device to the app, so you can locate your kids that don’t have a smartphone yet. We named it: dondeEsta Elementary School. The device easily integrates to your dondeEsta™ Family app. It is small, lightweight and fits in your kids’ pocket and backpack! It has a panic button for your kid, so you’ll get an automatic-real time notification to your phone when he press it!
We have been working on it and now you can already pre-order for a reduced price: only $69
You’ll be able to connect dondeEsta Elementary School device to the app at the begging of September for Back To School! We want to bring you peace of mind when your family is not around. Let’s have an amazing safety Back To School!
Before school starts, you have all summer holidays. Enjoy them with your loved ones!
Father’s day is around the corner! At dondeEsta™ we love to share family love. We got some inspiration and decided to write a poem for dad! Ready? You still have time to write yours for your dad!
Someone decided that today is your day.
How is it decided?
If I look back I remember what we have done together
If I look forward I can see what we will do
I grow up by your side and learnt how to walk, then bike
and probably I also learnt how to run, even though
you didn’t really help me on that.
Someone told me once that family there is only one.
How can I thank you what you do for us?
Let me show you what you told me and this way
maybe I can get a – no worries back.
If it is red, do not cross. If it is good, take it. If it is going to hurt, say no.
If there is nothing to lose, say yes! If you are not sure, give it a try.
In any case, say thanks.
But there is one thing you show me, you didn’t tell me about.
What today is no, tomorrow can become a yes.
If it doesn’t work, you can fix it.
What seems difficult today; can be easier in a few days, weeks and years.
What looks hard, it’s just a look; work hard and it’ll change how it looks.
Things change because we make them change. And this is good!
You were and you are.
You did and you do.
I want to change it.
How can someone decide that you deserve a day?
If there are 365 days a year, you deserve more than just one.
Because you have been by my side, every day of my life.
We agree and fight and we’ll probably keep it this way.
But the reason why we fight, will be a new one.
Because yesterday’s difference, today looks the same for you and I.
Happy Father’s day to all families!
Since we started dondeEsta™, we have been finding angels in our way. Amazing people that helps us because they believe in what we do. Incredible genius that leave part of them in the project you work in. There are a lot of types of angels, but today I’d like to tell you about Elena.
We met her a few months ago. She works in the same office as dondeEsta™ in Boston. She has been by our side in those moments when you need an angel.
For an awesome brainstorming session, for your hospitality and kindness and your warm spirit we’d like to thank you, Elena, everything you have done and you do for helping dondeEsta™. This post is dedicated to you.
If you find a person who has no reason for give you the best of himself/herself, then you found an angel!
Thanks Elena for everything you do and the way you do it.
Sweet home Alabama ♫ ♪, while I write this post I am listening the song. Good music! Do you know where is dondeEsta‘s home? We call home where family is. But also, we call home where we feel like home! A clue? It’s not Alabama ;)
We’re lucky for being able to call home two places: Boston and Barcelona. Two amazing cities with the ocean in between and 3642.27 miles apart one from the other (5861.51 KM).
This is our coworking space in Barcelona. We share this amazing bright room with designers, developers and creative people! Do you know what?
It was an old theater! Yes, this is our magic coworking space: neventum!
The CIC opened its arms to us a year ago when we landed in Boston! We are really happy to be part of its community where we made good friends and met amazing, incredible & talented people. Proud to be one of the 500 startups growing in between and beyond its walls!
So, dónde está home? Home is were the heart is, were our story begins!
Curiosity: Boston and Barcelona are Sister Cities since 1980
Be safe and move around!
Today is a very special day! May 15th is International Day of Families! All dondeEsta™ ‘s team wishes you a happy day!
There is no better way to celebrate it that with the family. However it is Thrusday, a working day. So, we decided to celebrate it with our family at work and with the family after work. How did we celebrate it?
Well, like a family does.. We fill up the work space with balloons so when people showed up they smiled! We also baked something sweet. We found the perfect eggs for a family cake!
We had a piece of cake and enjoyed a coffee together like a family does!
And with a full stomach, we kept working as everyday, happy!
Working for you and your family so you can enjoy the next version of dondeEsta™ Family with more features!
