Cozi’s new family apps include:
- Cozi Sitter Finder, $.99, iPhone – Cozi Sitter Finder is a personal babysitter organizer and scheduler in one. It takes the stress out of scrambling for sitters, especially with the busy holiday season approaching. Parents add their own contact info and their favorite sitters' info, then add the day and time of an upcoming event. Sitter Finder texts or emails the sitters, who respond with a yes or no that's sent back to the parents for approval. With a touch of the screen, the sitter is booked.
- Cozi Kids Coloring+, $1.99, iPad – Perfect for family travel, Cozi Kids Coloring+ by Tipitap, the coloring experts, keeps kids entertained with four activities designed to encourage creativity: Coloring Book, Photo Decorator, Artistic Springboard and Sketch Pad. Cozi Kids Coloring+ includes exclusive road trip and vacation-oriented themes, and lets kids draw over their own photos and decorate them with virtual stickers—just the thing for long trips or rainy days.
- Cozi Family Locator, free, available now for Android/coming soon for iPhone – Developed in partnership with Life360, the leader in mobile family safety, Cozi Family Locator gives families peace of mind and security through a variety of features. A Family GPS Location map shows parents at a glance where their children are. Neighborhood Safety Monitoring identifies nearby threats or safety points such as hospitals and police stations. Safety Status Alerts provide fast, secure communication during an emergency with one-click check-ins and a panic button, and Family Channel Group Messaging lets the whole family communicate with a group chat. Cozi Family Locator also has a premium offering for $4.99 per month, which includes emergency identification, family identity protection and lost item recovery.
- Cozi Password Vault, $1.99, iPhone – Remembering the dozens of passwords involved in daily life—from bill paying to online shopping—can be overwhelming.
