    Doesn’t Google Alerts already do pretty much the same thing that LaunchGram is trying to do?

    • Saikat Basu

      Yes, both are alert services but LaunchGram specifically covers movies, games, and tech-gadgets and with a far better interface and delivery mechanism. Google Alerts is more general and it catches ALL search mentions.

    • Justin Fortin

      I just use it for my name, so Google is better that way
