For this reason, this Mother’s Day, many have gone the route of buying mom a device, such as an iPad® tablet or iPhone® device, that she can use for everything from keeping her to-do list organized to tracking her fitness progress. But, how will she do these great things? Using some great apps for moms, of course!
Whether you are helping a mother who has a lot of tech experience or none at all, setting up these apps on mom’s Mother’s Day tech gift is a great way to really help her make the most of her gift.

Cozi Family Organizer is a great tool for sharing to do lists, medical appointments, carpool schedules, and more with your family in one central location. Users can update the calendar in the Cozi app on their iPhone device or iPad tablet and immediately see the update on the website too.
2. Task Rabbit
Not crossing items off the honey-do list? Task Rabbit is a marketplace that can put you in touch with the right talent for handyman tasks, moving tasks, cleaning, and more. Task Rabbit isn’t just for scratching items off the honey-do list! Taskers can help moms with errands such as picking up dry cleaning, grocery shopping, and even picking up dinner from a local restaurant.
The Nextdoor app is a social media app for neighbors to connect on what is going on in your neighborhood. For moms with young children, Nextdoor can be a great way to organize playdates, get a sitter recommendation, and more. For moms whose little ones are all grown up, the app can help you learn about community events, festivals, and even garage sales in your area. Neighbors can also let each other know when they will be out of town so they can help one another with tasks like picking up mail.
Moms know how important it is to save money and comparison shop. Using the ShopSavvy app allows product barcodes to be scanned in order to find the best deal on that product, whether that’s at a nearby store or on the Internet. The app includes well-known stores such as Best Buy, WalMart, Target, Costco, Macy’s, and Amazon. Just think how much money could be saved without running all over town to figure out the best price on an item.
