GoButler, the digital personal assistant service, today announces the launch of an iOS app to complement the existing SMS-based platform with a streamlined and design-forward product. The native iOS app builds on GoButler’s recent success by providing a high-quality user experience that adds numerous features including seamless payments, one-click image sharing and suggested purchases to enhance the current platform.

GoButler’s app launches with direct integrations with Uber and Card.io and product infrastructure supported by Braintree and Layer. Built to complement rather than supersede GoButler’s SMS-based services, the new app introduces an exclusive suite of features and abilities:

  • Messaging and image sharing - users will be able to send messages and images with faster processing time
  • Smooth payment - in-app payments & credit card scanning for security and efficiency in transactions
  • Holiday Gift Guide - hand-selected products categorized by recipient and price to make holiday shopping easier this year, with plans for updated guides for future events and holidays
  • Location sharing - users can instantly share their location through a push-button to help expedite the process of finding nearby restaurants, gas stations, etc
  • Product previewing - look at products in the app with a screenshot highlighting the product, description and price (where applicable). Confirm purchase, reservation or order with one click.
  • Push notifications - users will be notified of any update to their pending requests via push notification
  • Apple Watch - Talk directly with GoButler for requests and orders via your Apple Watch
  • Address management - easily add and edit saved addressed from directly inside the app with a convenient and user-friendly interface
  • Referral codes - refer a user and on their first purchase, both get credited $5
  • Spotlight search - search for messages already in the app’s history

“We’re excited to announce the launch of our iOS app, providing a smart, complementary channel to communicate directly with GoButler everyday,” said Navid Hadzaad, GoButler CEO and Founder. “We want to make it easier for our users to get everything they need in one place, with direct integrations and new features to add functionality to our existing service. By listening to user feedback, we are providing additional convenience that doesn’t limit them to just one platform and allows us to expand GoButler’s offerings to a wider audience.”

GoButler’s Human Assisted AI (HAAI) service is available 24/7 to fulfill requests and meet users’ needs, making everyday life easier. From meal and grocery delivery to travel arrangements, restaurant reservations, movie tickets and more, GoButler searches the web, compares prices, reads reviews, provides instructions and places orders, fulfilling thousands of requests per day.
