KangaDo Parent Organizer by DoLightful Inc., is an app designed for busy parents in mind. This iPhone app allows you to set up carpools, playdates, child care, and even your own specific “requests” on the go using your iPhone and sharing them with your network. The app allows you to invite trusted friends, family, babysitters and others to view your “calendar” of requests and then you can choose to make requests of others or fulfill a request when they need it. The app includes an integrated chat function and allows you to send text messages, photos and even your location. When sending out a request, you can send it via the app as well as via email and when someone accepts, completes, comments or cancels you are notified via your iPhone. The app also integrates with your calendar making sure that you remember all of your commitments.
My favorite feature of the app was that it allowed me to connect with friends and make requests on the fly as I needed them. I also loved that it was able to sync with my calendar which meant I could see it across all of my devices. It was super easy to use with a very low learning curve.
I wish there was an easier way to invite friends – you currently can use your iPhone contacts or invite by email. Since not all of the email addresses I have are on my device, it became a bit time consuming to enter all of them. I would love to see a way to import names/addresses into the app to make it easier to send out a mass invite. The app did pop up a bunch of individuals who were nearby, but I didn’t know any of them so I did not choose to connect with them. I also would have liked to be able to personalize the invitation out to people rather than just clicking a bunch of names and “invite”. The invites were sent via my cell phone number – and if someone didn’t have that in their contacts they might have wondered why they were getting the invite.
Great app that allows you as a busy parent to keep track of playdates, carpools, babysitting requests and more. Works with your iPhone and iOS devices. This is a parent app and it made my life much easier!
