Into_Now, has to be one of the most incredible iPhone apps I have ever used. It works like magic. In a nutshell the application when activated will listen to your television and with seemingly 100% accuracy, tell you what you are watching. You then can let your fellow Into_Now friends, Twitter followers, and/or Facebook friends know what you are watching within seconds!
With an incredible algorithm of past and present airing logs of television shows, Into_Now dynamically changes how we use Social Media. I’m all about geosocial and other types of cool apps, however the nefarious and ironic side of Social Media is that it takes time to checkin to places or type a message. This makes you “THAT ANNOYING GUY WITH THE IPHONE”.
I have to say that with Into_Now, I’m no longer, “THAT GUY”. I can continue interacting with the people around me as I hold the iPhone close to the television. Social Media can be really amazing at times, and yet (sigh) can be the very thing that pulls people away from each other. How many times have you gone to a party or a bar and there are at least 5-10 people with their faces in their iPhone or other SmartPhone device? It’s annoying…and yes admittedly, I used to be one of those people.
Into_Now’s network of users creates a microcosm of like minded people that you can connect to, in less than a heartbeat! At the time of writing this post, I have 135 friends on their network! I’ve only been using the app for a few days now! That is incredible, no matter how you look at it! So many people like to connect because they know that I have something in common with with them, that they love or enjoy watching.
As a Social Media Consultant, I would highly recommend this app to local & national television advertisers to help analyze the real-time data and the impact within various demographics of particular television shows. The best part is that it’s FREE! Enjoy!
Kudos to Into_Now! Download it now! Into_Now

Yesterday, January 20th, 2011 was the 2nd anniversary of putting down Bailey. It was a really rough day for me. No matter what I did, I kept thinking about that beautiful face and happy disposition. Just when I thought the day was going to be a complete downer…I received this incredible letter from one of my customers. This truly, truly, truly made my day and helped mitigate some of the pain of losing Bailey. The Haase Family have to be the sweetest people I have ever met. Ann & Jim are wonderful souls that openly welcomed me into their home a little more than a year ago. Their daughter, Annie-Brigitte, treated my little Murphy as if he was her own. Lovely humble people that lost an important part of their family: Ruby
I love transforming utter sadness to warm memories that fizzle and rejuvenate the soul.
This is why I love doing what I do.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. She sits on the mantel piece over the fireplace.
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve looked at her and are amazed at how real she looks even down to the little hairs above her ears. You are quite the artist. This is something we will cherish forever. She was very special to us and will always be special. Although the heart ache eases up, the emptiness is there.
We have since got another dog. Her name is “Beaner” she’s a mutt. Rescued her from Paws in Time. She was found on railroad tracks, starving, abused and sick with mange. She’s better now, wild and needs a lot of attention. We still miss Ruby.
Thanks again for your thoughtfulness.-
Till we see you again,
Love The Haases
Ann, Jim + Annie B.
