Apps for July 11, 2012

Cozi Family Organizer

Cozi Family Organizer helps you organize everything that you need to do that multiple members of the family can access anytime and anywhere. This app is helpful for those who are parents that need to keep track of everything from doctor’s appointments to after school events. You can add what you need in the family calendar and add a reminder in case you need it.  This family calendar has the same things you have available in your built in calendar on your device so you won’t need to learn something new entering in information in this app. Create shopping lists so that when one person in the family can make it to the store they have the information available without calling home hoping that someone else would remember what else is needed. Also if someone is at the store, you can see the items being checked off on your phone or PC and even add something you forgot while they are still there. You can create a to do list that will give whomever a chore list or honey do list so that they know what needs to be done for that day. You can also cross off this list like you can in the shopping list. There is a family journal that you can add a photo and enter in information that you don’t want to forget about that everyone in the family can see and enjoy that journal entry.

Before you can use this app you will need to create an account with Cozi which automatically syncs everything that is created with that account which can be accessed by any mobile phone or computer. With anything created or updated with the shared account is automatically updated on the fly so that anyone that has access to the account sees the latest update. The whole family shares one account that everyone can access using their own email address and the shared family password

There is a premium account update that will remove the ads plus add features like adding a second notification reminder of events created in your family calendar. This can be purchased from within the app for a yearly subscription of $49.99. If you don’t mind the ads or the limited app features, then you don’t need to pay for the subscription to enjoy this app and keep the entire family organized.
