Best Family Apps for Home, Work, School and Life

best family apps

 

Our smart phones  and tablets can help us stay organized and be productive.  Some of the best family apps help us do things from deposit a check to find out when a flight arrives.  Many are free or cost a dollar or two.  Taking advantage of an app to expedite a task, get a task done more easily or even make a task more fun is a reason to find your family’s best family apps.

We all have our favorites for different reasons.  Here are a few of mine by category.

Family life

  • Your bank app – easy access to your accounts
  • Kindle or Nook app – reading while you wait
  • Evernote – task lists, client lists, family lists
  • Local TV station app –  weather, traffic and local news

 

Work life

  • Dropbox – access documents to review
  • Evernote – to read or review clipped articles
  • GeniusScan – scans a document and creates pdf files
  • Your bank app – make deposits and verify account amounts

For kids, I am a big believer in low level technology use. However, there are lots of awesome apps for learning too!

    Love this list! Always looking for more great apps for family fun. This is one I use when traveling: Sit or Squat Restroom Finder by Charmin. If you travel with kids, you know how important it is to know where clean, safe public restrooms are!
