Being a mom is a full time job.  Thankfully, it’s 2015 and technology is on your side.  Check out these awesome apps that will make your life as a mom just a little easier.


This app is like having a free personal assistant at your fingertips at all times.  It manages your appointments, your grocery list, to-do lists, as well as your family calendar.  It also uses your phone’s GPS system to alert you of a task when you near certain destinations.


Anyone with kids knows how difficult it can be to find stores in the mall with a few kids in tow.  FastMall gives you turn-by-turn directions to any store that you choose.  You can also record voice memos to remind yourself the row where you parked your car.

White Noise Baby

This app plays a variety of sounds and tones ranging from a car ride to a hair dryer.  These comforting sounds can be used to soothe an irritable infant.  The app also has a built-in colorful rattle that is simply mesmerizing.  When you’re out and about, this is a convenient way to calm a fussy baby.


Cozi is a multi-functional app that lets you make shopping lists, organize your family calendar, and even leave reminders for yourself.  The great thing about this app is that your entire family can download it to their device and you can assign tasks to each “user.”  It’s an awesome way for busy families to keep track of everything on the go.

Grocery iQ

Any busy mom knows that the faster they can get in and out of the grocery store, the better.  Grocery iQ allows you to use a barcode scanner to create your shopping list.  You can then sort the list based on categories or aisles.  You can also add notes to each item to show price or quantity.



This financial app allows you to keep track of all of your accounts.  It tracks your bank accounts, credit cards, and personal investments.  One of the best parts of the Mint app is that it allows you to set and track your personal budgets and financial goals.
