Hapimomi Family Calendar, Lists and Social Network
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Hapimomi Family Calendar, Lists and Social Network is family sharing and organization app on iOS. Released by developer Hapimomi (great name!), it was built with the aim of having a solid family activity and messaging app to help keep busy parents sane. So, does it work? Let’s find out!
Hapimomi Family Calendar is basically an all-in-one family organizer app. I would call it a family planner app, but that sounds a little odd and has remarkably different connotations! However, Hapimomi Family Calendar truly does help Mommy (or whoever is selected as the household head on signup, yes, you need to register initially) plan the family activities. Hapimomi Family Calendar includes the ability to add various household members to the app, allowing you and your family a a private app through which to stay connected and organized.
The app includes a calendar, from which all family members may add info to it and stay up to date on whats coming up. This calendar is separate from the iOS iCloud calendar, so it requires going into the app to access. Also included is a handy ToDo list that all family members can view, a shopping list, a “wall” where members can post messages (sort of like a private Facebook wall in one app for the family), a Diary, and a Contacts list.
It’s a pretty handy set of options and really offers a great, free way for the family to stay organized. It would be nice to be able to be able to sync calendars with outside programs (Google Calendar, iCloud, etc), but other that that this app has a pretty rockin’ set of features! It’s perfect for busy households where Mom and Dad are trying to stay on top of ToDos, shopping lists, schedules and more!
Appearance and Layout:
Hapimomi Family Calendar looks awesome on iOS! The developers have gone with a sharp, professional layout that really works well on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Soft green with orange and white touches rounds out the nice color scheme used in this app.
A little dropdown menu at the top of the screen allows the user to access all the main features (rotating dial style). It’s remarkably easy to add new tasks, messages, jot a diary note, and more, thanks to the excellent and simple layout!
Hapimomi Family Calendar is a free app, making it an even better option for the family on a budget. However, there is a small banner ad that runs at the bottom of the screen. Fortunately, this is fairly unobtrusive and doesn’t detract much from the main Hapimomi Family Calendar using experience. The app functions very nicely, includes a lot of great features to help keep Mom happy and is a great addition to the “app-ified” family.
Hapimomi Family Calendar, Lists and Social Network requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
