As I sat down to write this review, I glanced at my clock and was surprised that it was already getting dark outside, which could only mean one thing- back to school time! The summer always seems to fly by, and before we know it, we’re knee-deep in carpools, after-school activities and the general hustle and bustle of the school year. While some parents may dread this busy time, I find that with some clever organization and the help of a few trusty apps, such as KangaDo Parent Organizer it can be as easy as 1-2-3 or A-B-C!
With the KangaDo Parent Organizer, after downloading the free app, users sign up with an email address and password and invite other parents, caregivers and family members to join. Once everyone is set up, users can post requests for carpools, childcare needs and playdates, or simply just chat with friends. A great feature is that you can create different groups for whatever you need. For example, if one child has a carpool for soccer practice, and the other is in a playgroup, you can make groups based on different interactions, while still managing everything from the same, simple interface. I also liked the location-sharing feature and could see it coming in handy when meeting up with a group or sending another parent the location of a carpool pick up. The possibilities are really endless. Worried about forgetting all of things that you have scheduled? KangaDo is set up to remind you of your upcoming tasks and requests and will also let you know right away when something has been canceled or modified, so you don’t have to worry.
The app is very straight forward and so easy to use and I loved the sleek interface with different colors for each request category. KangaDo is definitely the perfect companion for the modern parent with busy children on the go, and it is sure to make back-to-school a breeze this year- and the best part is, it’s completely free!
