Family Orbit is a great app for keeping track of your family.  With Family Orbit, parents can locate their family in real-time, monitor their kids, and share content with family members.  The Family Orbit app acts as a private social network for families where they can stay connected 24/7, know where everyone is, share photos, and connect immediately in case of emergency.

An Activity Wall with family news is just one awesome feature of Family Orbit, here you can see all the up-to-date info on what’s happening in the family.  Parents can also track everyone’s location on a real-time map.  There is also a way to view location history of family members within the last 7 days.

In addition to checking location of family members, you can check in or send panic alerts to family members if something is urgent.  There is a quick and easy way to set up Family Places like home and school and be notified automatically by push notifications and emails when family members arrive or leave.  I thought that the push notifications upon arrival and departure could really provide peace of mind for parents.

The app is also intended to be used as a fun way to keep in touch socially.  Family members can share photos privately and securely with everyone in the family.  Users can send one on one or group messages, too.

If you are looking for an app to help you keep things in check within your family, be sure to check out Family Orbit.  I think that this app could be helpful and provide peace of mind for parents.  The app is free to download, and you can also update to a premium subscription for $4.99 per month as well.
