Kid Notice 1.0 Review

Create a detailed profile of your child for other caregivers so that you can rest at ease.

Apps for the iPhone have revolutionized how a lot of things are done. Name an everyday task and it's likely you'll find an app that makes it easier. For parents of young children that are constantly visiting each others' houses or sleeping over, Kid Notice is designed to make it easier to interact with fellow parents on your iPhone from a secure, private interface. It's a particularly great tool for parents with busy schedules.

Upon installation, you'll be required to create a new account with Kid Notice -- including your name, username, and password. From there, you can add children to the app and then look for other parents that are using the app (or invite them to use it with you). The real genius of this app is that it does not have a public directory, so you can limit your sharing to people whom you trust. When you enter a child into the app, you can add information including your phone number, your primary insurance carrier, your emergency contact information, doctor's name and address, dentist's name and address, and any other notes about allergies, medications, and food preferences. In effect, it's an instant digital note to any parents that will be looking out for your kids -- a way to more easily relax if you let your kid out of your sight for a few hours or let them go on that weekend sleepover.

Kid Notice, if used actively by you and other parents in your social circle, can be a very useful tool. Whether used for a sleepover or for visits with grandparents, aunts, or uncles, Kid Notice includes important details about your child and the kids who are spending time in your home. It also allows you to easily communicate with those parents through the app. All in all, this is a very powerful tool and one that many parents will eagerly adopt.
