App of the Week – KeyMe
Published on May 18, 2017
Have you ever been locked out of your home or office, left high and dry without your trusty ring of keys?
Or have you ever needed to find the one specific key that unlocks that old trunk, supply room or security gate – you know, the one that you only really open once every few years – only to find yourself poring through a junk drawer for hours, becoming more and more sure with each passing second that that precious key never actually existed?
Keys are an essential part of our everyday lives, to the point where most of us don’t even think about them at all – until something goes wrong. Avert those future hassles right now with KeyMe, the amazing app that promises to “transform the way you manage your keys.”
With the KeyMe app, you simply scan your keys using your smartphone’s camera. From there, your key is saved into your secure personal library. Once it’s uploaded via the app, you can easily order extra or replacement keys at any time; even better, if you’re in a pinch, you can simply head to one of the many KeyMe kiosks located around the country (there's more than 20 located in Chicago alone), where you can print your key in a flash.
And the options don’t stop there! You can also use the app to securely share your keys with friends, family, or a trusted locksmith, so that they can print them at their own convenience, with your permission; in addition, when you order a replacement or spare key, you can choose from a variety of custom and designer patterns and prints, meaning that you’ll never have to decipher one boring brass piece from another again.
Ready for a more convenient, accurate, and user-driven approach to your key ring? Give KeyMe a try today! The app is free to download for iOS and Android devices; you will need to pay as you go for any replacement or spare keys that you order in-app or using a kiosk.
