Apps to stay in touch with family members

Written by on November 8, 2013 in Gadgets with 2 Comments

One of the biggest challenges for couples and families these days is staying connected…and keeping busy and often confusing schedules coordinated. When you throw in an RV and lots of traveling, life can really get complicated.

That’s where smartphone technology can really help. I have some great apps I juts shared with my NBC-TV audience this week that will help you stay in touch with your spouse and other family members and bring some organization to those busy schedules.





One of the handiest apps I’ve found for couples is Twyxt. This app started out as a lovey-dovey, touchy-feely app to send sweet nothings to each other during the day. But it now has so many added features that it is downright useable. It shares calendars and to-do lists and photos, memos and notes and even a private messaging system as well. If one person updates, the other person’s Twyzt screen is also updated. It’s free, for the iPhone and Android devices.


Cozi Family Orgainzer

Android and iPhone users looking to stay connected to family members will want to try the Life 360 app. It bills itself as a Family Locator App… and more. It shows on a map where other family members are at any given time. This is great for RVers. You can connect with each other by private text messaging and keep other family members up to date on your plans or share your schedule.

iPhone, iPad and Android users will appreciate the Cozi Family Organizer. It sets up and shares a family calendar, sends out reminders, has a family shopping list, a to-do list and even a family journal. It’s very easy to work…and it’s free.

So there you go.
