Hey Jude! The Magic Personal Assistant App (Competition)May 15, 2017 / bynatalie / Categories : Personal
Ever wished you had a personal assistant who you could just call up and ask to organise your birthday party or book your flights and accommodation for your upcoming holiday? I mean, I literally wish that all.the.time! That’s why I thought Hey Jude was so cool when I heard about it!
Hey Jude is a personal assistant app, but with real people – The Judes – on the other side! The app is free to download, and you’re given 3 free requests. After that, you can decide if you’d like to subscribe for R199 per month. You pay for the goods or services you need, while only paying Hey Jude R199 a month for their personal assistant service.
Here’s how the Hey Jude app works:
Me: “Hey Jude, I’m looking for accommodation for one night in the Yarra Valley, just outside of Melbourne, for two people, this Friday night. I’d like a quaint cottage or room with a fireplace. I’m looking to spend around $200 Australian.”
The Judes do all the hard work that I would normally have to do from my phone while trying to manage my life. They then get back to me with a couple of options that best match my request. If I like any of them, the Judes can book and pay for the accommodation using my (safely stored) credit card details.
Honestly, how cool and useful is that? And it literally costs less than avo on toast in Melbourne. WORTH IT!
Hey Jude has smart integrations with Uber, AirBnB and Ticket Master so you don’t have to leave 10 apps open on your phone. They can calculate the cost of the Uber trip to the airport for the flight they just booked for you. They can find and book your accommodation and restaurants on the other side. They could probably even send you a bedtime story to help you fall asleep once you get there.
Think of all the ways you could use it. You could ask Hey Jude to find and book a restaurant for your family that caters to several diets, or to book your car in for a service, then remind you to take it. You could ask The Judes to take a look at some pictures of your new house and find furniture within your budget that would work in the space. Or to find a gift for your mom in-law’s birthday and have it delivered to her doorstep. Basically, anything you would ask the assistant you can’t afford to do.
Competition Time with Hey Jude
Now if you’re already planning all the ways you can use Hey Jude, I’ve got some good news. They’re giving away the opportunity to make #HeyJudeMagic with R5000 credit. So if you’re dreaming about getting The Judes to book your holiday to Mauritius, or plan you the “surprise” birthday party you’ve always wanted, or find you the perfect tattoo artist and brief them on what you’re after, this is your chance to make your dreams come true!
How to enter:
- Comment below and tell me what you’d get The Judes to do for you with R5000
- For 30 (!) extra entries, upload a picture of what you’d spend that R5000 on to Facebook or Instagram and copy and paste this caption: “I want to win R5000 with @heyjudeapp by sharing what I’d do with all that cash! #heyjudemagic”
Almost as easy as actually using the app itself.
