The Guardian Lists Everplans Among Apps Tackling Death

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 • by Dania McDermott

The international media outlet details the merits of death apps -- and includes Everplans.


The Guardian named Everplans among apps with the potential to change the way people think about and plan for their deaths.

Best of all, the article features quotes from our very own Abby Schneiderman and Gene Newman:

The co-founder of another end-of-life planning company, Everplans, formed the basis for Everplans by drawing on her own experience planning her wedding with The Knot’s online wedding planning tool. Sites like The Knot and The Bump provide online checklists and weekly email reminders for wedding and family planning, spanning several months or even years ahead of an event. But planning for death? With these death apps, it could turn into a lifelong Facebook update.

“We don’t expect somebody to go through and finish an Everplan in an hour or a day. We see it as an ongoing process,” says Gene Newman, Everplans’ editorial director.

Newman says he updates his own Everplans account every week, sometimes when he hears user feedback on new data scenarios the company should include or exclude if a service shuts down. After Everplans adds and deletes fields in its service plan, Newman usually makes changes to his own account in the same places.

We’re very excited to be included this roundup. Create an Everplan today to find out what all the fuss is about.
