Useful Apps for Tech-Savvy Moms

Today, it’s pretty hard to escape technology. Computers and smart devices are to be found everywhere – our television sets are smart, so are the appliances, not to mention our phones. Speaking of smartphones – you hardly see a kid or teenager without one in their hands. Before you argue that they shouldn’t have them, know that science considers them overall beneficial – they help kids find new friends online and consolidate their real-life relationships and express themselves in a medium that’s always at hand. But it doesn’t make it any easier to keep up with them. But fear not, there are apps that can help tech-savvy moms to keep up.


“Cozi Family Organizer” is considered by many a must-have app for families, a fact confirmed by its three-time “Mom’s Choice Award” win. And it does exactly what its name suggests: it helps keep your family organized. The list of its features seems endless: it synchronizes the family members’ calendars, helps you set reminders and takes care of appointments, organize activities and set up meetings, lessons, and practices, it synchronizes to-do lists and shopping lists so none of the kids’ favorite snacks get forgotten when shopping, and it even helps you store recipes, write a family journal, and puts them in front of you as an easy to use and comprehensive summary.

Cozi is available free both on iOS and Android.


Kids these days are very creative – but their creations can often take up a lot of space and end up in boxes in the attic or in other secluded places. If you want to keep all the best creations of your kids at hand – and follow his or her progress over the years – Artkive is the service for you.
