Company description

Twist is the easiest way to let your family, friends and colleagues know when you will arrive.
Twist also alerts them when you are almost there and if you are running late. Whether you are driving, walking or taking public transit, Twist accurately calculates your arrival time to a specified destination and privately shares your ETA with only those that you choose.

What people are saying:

★ "Twist is a very easy-to-use app with an incredibly relevant purpose." – Wired

★ "Twist is a clever app […] It’s a really cool app for keeping people up to date on your whereabouts distraction-free.” – Mashable

★ “Ever been late for a meeting? Now, finally, there is an app for that." – Inc

Twist merges the best features of your iPhone (maps, traffic, calendar, SMS, photos, recommendations, email, check-in and chat) into a single easy-to-use mobile application.

Since continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life, Twist utilizes proprietary GPS and cell tower data algorithms to minimize battery drain.

Eliminate the uncertain wait times that often leave people stressed or frustrated with Twist’s simple, social and accurate ETAs. Stop waiting, stop guessing, and start twisting.

(Twist is currently available in US, CA, UK and AU. World-wide release coming soon.)
