12 Must-Have Apps for Moms

by Lindsay Hutton

These days, apps allow you to do everything from your phone or tablet, whether it's creating a grocery list, tracking your little one's potty training progress, or keeping a chore chart. Check out which ones are our favorites for managing the day-to-day life of a busy parent.

Here's your all-in-one app that allows you to always know where your kids are, what they're doing on social media, who they are with, and, for parents of teens, if they are speeding. Simply set up your Mama Bear account and sync your family's phones. When your child makes a new online "friend," uploads a photo, gets tagged in a photo, or uses inappropriate language from a list of restricted words created by you, you'll be aware of the activity.

Additionally, you can see where your child is with the map feature, and who your child is with when he is checked into a location by a friend via social media. This app also notifies you when your teen is speeding or driving dangerously.

Finally, your child can easily contact you if needed. Her phone will have 3 buttons — Check In, Come Get Me, Emergency — that will alert you to her location and will allow you to find her in an emergency.
