We are living in a technology-obsessed era where it is becoming increasingly impossible to live without our tablets and smartphones. There are more than a million apps that are listed in the Google Play Store. With such a huge number of apps, not many people can get the time to figure out the kinds of apps that are worth downloading. If you are a parent, you want to know the apps that can make life easier on your side. In this post, find the apps that test pregnancy, track where your kids are or help you choose a name for your unborn baby. If you want to know a lot more recommended apps, head over to Gina's blog.
StealthGenie is undoubtedly a parent’s true companion. It lets you track your children so that you know wherever they are at all times. This app makes it possible for parents to keep a close eye on the activities that their kids are involved in. The best part is that this is achieved remotely and you do not need to have physical access to target phones. And with the cases of internet child harassment, you do not have to worry because all that you need to do is to install StealthGenie on the cell phone of your child.
2. KICK TO PICK
This app lets your unborn baby pick their names. You will need to set the phone screen to list of names, either males or females. After that, lie on your back and have the phone put on your belly. As the baby kicks the phone, a name will be picked for him or her. It is reminds one of flipping a coin. But the problem is that you are not able to add names to this list. You must get the name of your baby from the preset ones. The app costs $ 0.99 and is available for iPad, iPod touch and iPhone users.
With AnyList, parents will be able to stay on-task and more organized when shopping. The app contains preset labels and categories such as meat, dairy, and produce among other things that you can use to get started. It also allows you to reorder as well as rename the items according to your needs. If, for instance, you purchase staples from a local warehouse and dairy products from your nearby market, it is possible to buy by store as well as by aisle. There is also an option that enables you to synchronize your shopping list with another person. This means that if your spouse is the one that goes out for shopping, then he or she will be able to use the list.
This is yet another helpful app that parents can download and use. It can be said to be a baby monitor on your phone. The app calls a preset number to alert you when your kid has woken up. If you go a step further and set sensitivity feature higher, you will know even when your baby moves. It is like your 4-month baby calling you whenever he wakes up. You won’t have to be checking on him every so often.
5. PREGNANCY TEST
The app eliminates the need for ladies to urinate when testing whether they are pregnant or not. By simply sticking your thumbs on your phone’s screen, you will be able to know if you are pregnant. If you rub your phone against the belly, it may even give you an ultrasound. This way, you can tell the sex of the child you are carrying as well as whether they are twins or triplets. It costs $0.99 and can be installed on iPod touch, iPhone and iPad.
6. COZI FAMILY ORGANIZER
The Cozy Family Organizer has all the things you require to maintain an organized family. It comes with an interactive calendar for the family and all members can easily access it. And if you want to hold onto your precious memory, then all you need to do is to use the feature of Cozi family journal. The app can be used by parents no matter their age.
Has it ever crossed your mind how your small baby would appear if they had a beard? Well, you can see exactly how that is by using this app. This app allows you to add facial hairs to the photo of your little cutie. As you will see, nothing is cuter than a one-month-old baby having whiskers. The app costs $0.99 and can be downloaded by users of iPad, iPod touch and iPhone.
