Hey Jude

May 17, 2017

Hey jude

A while back I was watching an episode of Modern Family and it in Mitchel gets a voucher for a service that literally does anything for you when you don’t have the time or the inclination to do it yourself. I was literally watching this and thinking, man that is so awesome I wish we had something similar here…. Well, guess what?! We do!

I’d like to introduce you all to a very cool app called Hey Jude which will not only find you whatever you need, but they will get a quote, deliver it and even pay on your behalf! So for example if you were trying to arrange a party where you needed say 200 hotdogs in a blow-up pool (that’s my kind of party) then all you would have to do is log onto the app and start up a conversation with one of the virtual assistants, which is powered by a real person chatting to you. You would then tell them what you are looking for, you can even send photo reference if you want. But say you don’t feel like typing because you’re too busy sipping on a cup of tea or scrolling through your address book to see who you’d like to invite to said hotdog party, then all you have to do is send a voice note containing your requirements and that’s that. It can’t get any easier.

Hey jude-2

Hey jude-3

This app can handle any size request from restaurant bookings, to travel arrangements, to ordering food, to finding a specific product, to organising a tradesman, whatever you can think of. 

So I downloaded the app and tried it out and I’m not going to lie, Hey Jude is kind of amazing, it’s like having four of you making sure stuff gets done! I found it really useful and easy to use, I even felt a little fancy whilst on it because it kind of feels like having a personal assistant who you don’t have to pay and who doesn’t mind doing everything for you. So now that I know how much 200 hotdogs cost, anyone want to come to my hotdog pool party? It’ll be fun, I promise.

What I’d like to do now is treat one of you to a dream come true with Hey Jude to the value of R5000 in cash that you can spend on absolutely anything you like! A hot air balloon ride, a new TV, a magic potion that will multiply you four times over, you name it and it’s yours.

All you have to do is:

  1. Leave me a comment here telling me what you would ask Hey Jude to help you find or organise.
  2. Post an image to your Instagram or Facebook page of what you would like to spend the cash on and make sure you include the following copy: I want to win R5000 with @heyjudeapp by sharing what I’d do with all that cash! #HeyJudeMagic
  3. Posts to Instagram and Facebook will be rewarded with THIRTY additional entries! Don’t forget to use the tags so we can track your entries. 
  4. A winner will be chosen on the 31st of May 2017. Good luck!

    I am dreaming of that cozy cabin in the woods or that little cottage by the sea, the perfect little getaway spot I’ve had my eye on for ages. And chances are it will be a reality with Hey Jude App helping me out, having such an extensive listing and cover the whole of Africa/world. So the chances of me finding that perfect spot for a much needed break, are pretty favourable!!!! #heyjudemagic

    I would definitely ask for a hot air balloon ride, it has been such a dream of mine to go away on one of these! My dream of flying with the wind in my hair would actually come true 🙂 #HeyJudeMagic

    I would ask Hey Jude to help me organise my son’s birthday that coming up soon I am a first time mom with no organising skills and find it difficult to entertain people especially when they are fussy. I would love to make this a special one. Where do I find the right people to organise a stunning Mickey Mouse Cake #HeyJudeMagic

  • Reply Jess May 17, 2017 at 11:31 am

    My life would be forever altered if someone would come to my house and cook dinner every night for a week. I don’t want holidays, shopping vouchers, spa treatments, or a bath full of hotdogs. I just want someone to take care of dinner for just one week. Partly because I am exhausted by the time I get home from work, but also so that I can see (just for a week), what it feels like to be my husband. And while we’re on it, If I could be having a massage in my lounge by the fireplace with a glass of red wine, while someone else cooks me a delish wintery delight, that would be awesome. I’m pushing it, aren’t I? Ok. Just the food then. Pretty please.

    @heyjudeapp and Lucky Pony I would love to purchase a much needed Clarinet, for my daughter, which she could also use at school and when she helps teaching at Elsies River Music Development Group (ERMDG) on a Saturday. ERMDG, is aimed at making students thereof musically literate and giving them an ability to apply these skills practically on a musical instrument and also providing them with the building blocks they might need to enable them to nurture/develop a career in music.
    ERMDG is also a NPO and funds are limited and therefore we cannot also purchase the much needed instruments.
    Achieving this goal will not only make my daughter’s dream come true, but will contribute to the lives of the students within our music school

    Hey Angie and HeyJude 🌸
    A friend and I are planning on our first trip to Portugual in June and could definitely use the money to go towards one night accommodation in a lovely city called Porto. We would love to embark on this journey stress free and soak it all in. I shall be using the app (and hopefully the money) to locate a cute little cottage or something listed on AirBnB ((:

    Dear Hey Jude and Lucky Pony

    What a unreal spoil an extra R5k would be 😍

    Since I’m in love with all things ocean and nature like, I would choose to spoil my little family ( Mr Stanley and Mr Rupert) , 8 & 4 years old, respectively, PLUS 1 x Loving & gorgeous husband Simon Good, to a day out experiencing the Oceans Marine “Big5”

    We would leave from Hout Bay harbour and explore the ocean and all it’s life force from
    Seals to sharks to whales 😍

    With the left over cash, I would wish to donate groceries to our local Masiphumelele
    crèche as the kids often go to school on an empty tummy.

    Well.. I would love to ask Jude to organize this .. To Book the family to go and see Disney on Ice In July. This is something my kids have been begging for, for the last 3 years, and I just haven’t been able to do it. This would be absolutely amazing..

    I would definitely take my husband to Kruger. I’ve recently had major surgery on my leg and foot and have been bed bound for 2 weeks. I have another 8 weeks on crutches ahead of me, and then learning to walk again with physio and occupational therapy. My husband has been absolutely AMAZING looking after me day and night. From my many days in hospital where he broke all the rules of visiting hours to be with me all day while I was in so much pain, and being there to help me use the bed pan (no husband should ever have to do that!!) and help me get to the bathroom and back on my crutches now that I’m home, I would love nothing more than to spoil him with a relaxing break in the bush. He SO deserves it!!

    Hey Jude would help me find the best lodge for us – any chance the app can find us a leopard in the bush too?

    Ah gosh! We planned a trip to India last year, and towards the end of the year we had just left it too long without making all the necessary arrangements and decided to put it off until December this year (also it’s crazy expensive to travel) alas, here we are, almost in June. We have still planned nothing.

    So this is definitely something we could use some help with. (Please haha) We have never been to India, so it’s quite a big task to organize if you know absolutely nothing.

    PS: will take Jude with for a good time if we end up going this year.
