Balancing work and family life can be a real chore even for the most experienced moms: you have to rush around in the morning to get the kids ready for school while making sure that you are ready for your own day, and then somehow find the time to relax at night. Sometimes, it may seem as if there’s nothing that can help you stay on schedule.
But with today’s mobile devices, there are apps out there that may be able to help you balance your work and family life, making everything less stressful. Here are some apps that work with your Android devices to help you stay on top of all of the things a busy mom needs to every day.
Weather Live Free
Want to take the kids to a park for some fun? Need to run errands sometime this week and you are looking for the right day? Then you’re going to need to know what the weather will be like so you can be prepared, and this weather app for android is great at giving you everything you need to know.
Weather Live Free will tell you the temperature, the humidity levels, the wind speed and will even let you know when the sun will set so you know how long until dark. It will also give you the “feels like” temperature so you know how to dress your kids for a fun day outside.
The app also features a weather radar that updates all of the time so you know if there are any fronts moving in or out of your area. A seven-day forecast will give you plenty of time to prepare for your week as well.
Cozi is a calendar app that works great for families. It features a color-coded style that you can coordinate for every member of the family, so you can stay on top of individual appointments and tasks and you can always know what you and your family should be doing.
You can sync the calendar with all of the members of your family (if they are old enough to have a mobile device, that is!) and they will be informed anytime you make changes or edits to the calendar. You can also add photos and keep a journal that everyone — or no one — can read if you wish.
Grocery shopping can be tough for a family, and the bigger the family is, the tougher it gets. This app will help you create a list of all of the things you will need to pick up next time you’re at the store.
You can use the voice feature to instantly make a grocery list, or you can use your mobile keyboard. Or, you can use the app to create a list from over one million items. You can also recall previous lists and organize your items by aisles.
Let these apps help you out next time you feel like you can’t keep up with everything!
