How should mileage log reminders work?

It was suggested to me by @Alex that there should be some sort of reminder for mileage logs. Something along the lines of, “Hey, it’s been a week since you last inputted mileage for [vehicle], would you like to do that now?”

Does anyone have a suggestion on how the app should send you that reminder?

  • SMS
  • email
  • just an in-app banner
  • push notification (mobile) (not sure how this plays in a desktop browser)
  • something else?

Assume for now I can only do one of these by launch.

I’d personally like to get notifications via text messages.

As an alternative, I’d be open to receive push notifications.

Thanks for that feedback.

In case SMS is the route, I did start looking into that. There’s three main costs, the per message cost, the carrier fee (per msg), as well as renting a phone number. shortcodes, which are awesome, are completely out of my price range right now. I can get a toll-free number for cheap and then send texts from that as a reasonable fee considering the low amount of users this app will have for awhile.
