AT LAST, HELP FOR BUSY PARENTS – THE NEW, FREE CHILD FRIENDLY SA APP
Whether you have one child or six, parenting will absorb all of your available time. The new semester will once again bring all of the familiar challenges – getting the school uniforms and supplies in check, scheduling extra-murals, finding a good tutor if your child has problems or a coach if he or she excels in a particular activity, and not losing site of the October and December holidays creeping up too quickly. In between, you do want to plan the occasional fun family weekend activity, and not to forget, the dentist appointments. All in a regular day’s work for the engaged and caring parent. Winter sniffles? Child-friendly doctors and late night pharmacies, please!
The new Child Friendly SA App, available for free download on the App Store and Google Play, offers a quick and easy solution to help parents-on-the-go to make more of their own day and their kids’ lives. With over 10,000 listings of child friendly activities, services and shops, readily accessible from your smartphone, users gain on many fronts. The App offers a wealth of interesting ideas and valuable shortcuts to enriching your family life and managing it more efficiently.
If you have ever searched the web for anything related to your kids, you will find it on this App. Information is presented in more than 200 categories and sub-categories, covering the needs of kids from birth to the end of the high school years. By having it all on your smartphone means you can use those 15 minutes waiting in the car park before the school bell rings to do your planning.
Developed by an award-winning digital development agency alongside well-seasoned parents, the Child Friendly SA App follows a careful flow of logic based on what parents have used to search the web for many years, in order to present users with a much quicker way of finding child-friendly services and activities. Once you have found what you need, state of the art App functionality allows you to call, email or share with friends directly from the App. The shortest route is mapped and you can even order an Uber car from within the App. If you need further information, you can also click through to the listed business’ website. Mark your favourites for quick reference in future, and opt in or out to receive regular notices on exciting events in your area, special deals, or to enter great competitions.
Parenting might be the toughest job in the world, but also the most rewarding. Allow this innovative Child Friendly SA App to smooth the journey. There is good reason why South Africa’s top tech guru (himself a dad), and well as several super-mommy bloggers have given this App a resounding thumbs-up.
