Life360, Classy Mommy and Cozi have launched a Mother's Day microsite with a convenient trio of useful free apps for a busy mom. From providing family safety to organizing play dates to a top-rated family calendar – the apps simplify life for the digital mom on the run. Compatible with iPads, iPhones and Android phones, links on mothersdayappbundle.com connect to iTunes and the Android Market for quick free downloads.
Life360 uses location-based technology to allow parents to check-in to see where their kids are and if they’re safe. This popular app currently boasts around 2 million users. The app uses data from the National Sex Offender database and posts locations of known sex offenders in the vicinity along with nearby police stations. One click check-ins and a panic button are prominently displayed in the menu bar.
Classy Mommy’s Instant Playdates app connects Facebook moms with each other to make play dates in advance or on the fly. At the park with no playmates in sight? Send an instant invite to your friends that automatically includes your location with a map, making it easy for them to pack up the kids and join you.
The Cozi Family Organizer helps parents coordinate, communicate and manage busy family schedules, grocery shopping and to-do lists. The Seattle-based company was founded by veterans of Microsoft, Expedia and Amazon who understood the challenges of working families and how smart tech could help. Today, more than 3 million families use the Cozi app.
The Organizer recently added the FlyLady's housekeeping regimen, a program based on "baby steps" and 15-minute limits to a clean house. Her mission ― relieve CHAOS, that's "Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome."
"Today’s moms are faced with new parenting challenges on a daily basis," Colleen Padilla, the mom behind Classy Mommy and author of "The Digital Mom Handbook" that teaches women how to blog, tweet, skype, vlog and Facebook their ways to the top, said in a statement. "Something as simple as this bundle to reduce the constant worrying is truly an invaluable Mother’s Day gift."
