FamFetch is an app designed to help parents make life easier! With FamFetch, parents can coordinate kids’ activities, including their pick-ups and drop-offs. Think of FamFetch as an all-in-one scheduling and carpooling app. I thought that this app could help parents coordinate and make life simpler.
Through using FamFetch, parents can schedule activities, organize pick-ups and drop-offs based on real time traffic and quickly contact their “circle” of trusted friends, family, neighbors or nannies to help with pick-ups/drop-offs when they can’t make it! The app features an easy scheduling module where parents can add the day, time and address for each activity and the app will tell them how far the drive is and what time they need to leave from their current location in order to be on time (using real time traffic). I like how you can add a co-parent to ensure that all the information is shared and updated automatically to make coordinating your kids’ activities easy and safe.
Another great feature of the app, if you are stuck in traffic or running late, you can simply send a message (Fetch Request) with pick-up and drop-off information to your trusted circle to see who can help. The Fetch Request will then show you who is closest, etc. based on current traffic. Once your Fetch Request is accepted, you will receive a notification and know that your child will be picked up safe and on time! Speaking of safety, another great feature – you can include your child’s allergies and a secret word (for the circle to know) to keep them safe!
The app has lots of other handy features, including: a warning system when two activities are scheduled too close for you to make it based on average traffic times, a clean and easy “today” and “monthly” calendar view, and many more. I thought that the FamFetch app had a great concept. I would definitely recommend getting this app and trying it out if you are a busy family on-the-go!
