Centralized Obituary Platform for the 21st Century – New App MyObits Available Now
September 15, 2018 Technology News(PRLEAP.COM) When a loved one dies, there are so many necessary tasks to do at an emotionally overwhelming time – and many of them quite expensive, such as writing and submitting an obituary to a local or regional newspaper. A new app called MyObits promises a simple, low-cost solution for posting death notices, service information, family records and biographical information using easy to follow forms which guide the user through the process.
The announcement can be fully public or selectively private. There's even an optional guest book and floral site so loved ones can have fresh local flowers delivered. MyObits is free to download on the App Store and Google Play for viewing obituaries. The service is a nominal $35 for posting obits.
As a primary platform for consolidating obituaries, MyObits offers a keywords filter option so timely and relevant death notices can be delivered directly to the mobile device. Users can decide which parts of life are key to searches such as high school/college, church affiliation, military service, workplaces, organizations or anything else as a search term.
MyObits was produced by Scott Found, a funeral director with 30-year career during which time he witnessed a 1,000% rise in newspaper obituary costs, with the average cost for a printed obit now more than $300. Tired of seeing many families spending such large sums, and recognizing that the ads littering many newspaper obit sites detract from respect for the deceased, he developed an affordable standalone platform solution.
"MyObits give the power of the obituary back to the people with no limits on space or expense," says MyObits developer Scott Found. "In an age where most information is delivered to us via the internet or mobile device, why rely on traditional print?"
