An intensified aggregation of iHarmony typically found in the enterprise work environment where several colleagues are nearby and receiving a common audible meeting notification on all associated mobile devices and computing platforms.
The iChorus from my cube farm drew me to the conference room like a Siren's song. I didn't even need to look at my calendar to know where to go.
The harmony produced from an individual's multiple Apple and iOS devices simultaneously playing audible notifications for items such as calendar events, reminders, or new mail. The phenomenon has expanded with the iCloud service insuring that all devices have synchronized event notification.
What a melodic iHarmony from your tablet and phone. I need to set my notification sounds to the same samples.
