CatchUp - Keep in Touch

CatchUp's app icon

*Featured on Brett Terpstra's Systematic Podcast as one of his 'Top 3' picks (around 46:21)

My first public-facing iOS app! First released in May of 2018, I completely rewrote it in May of 2020 using SwiftUI, Core Data, and several other improvements.

CatchUp helps you stay in touch with the people who matter most. You can set reminders for the contacts you choose, and get notified when it's time to CatchUp with them again.

CatchUp is free with no ads, but has a tip jar if you want to buy me a coffee ☕
