Technology & Divorce: 4 Mobile Apps Co-Parents Should Be Using

Sharing custody of your child with your ex is no easy task, especially if the end of your relationship didn’t end on the best of terms. However, when children are involved, divorced parents will have to find a way to make co-parenting work.

Luckily, we live in an age of technology, and there are now apps available for co-parents to use that include great features like family calendars, schedules, and even communication. Here are some of the best apps you should consider trying out with your ex-spouse.

OurFamilyWizard

The OurFamilyWizard app is the “best co-parenting app for staying focused on the kids, not conflict.” Features include a calendar, message board, expense log, journal, and an info bank. Additionally, parents can add third parties like grandparents, mediators, or therapists to the account.

Cost and Availability: OurFamilyWizard offers different subscription plans and features starting at $99 for one year with a 30-day money-back guarantee. There is also a fee waiver program and military family discount for those who qualify. The mobile app is free to install on Android and iOS.

AppClose

For parents on a budget, AppClose is a must. It still has many great features but is free to use! It offers many of the same features as similar co-parenting apps like a shared calendar, records, the ability to add third parties, and a messenger. Additionally, you can add requests from the other parent in the app.

Cost and Availability: Free for both Android and iOS users.

Coparently

Coparently has “everything you need to raise healthy, happy kids after separation or divorce.” The app features a color-coded custody calendar, co-parent communication center, co-parent expense record, and a shared list of essential contacts. Parents can also grant access to other guests.

Cost and Availability: Coparently is $99 per year or $9.99 per month per parent, but is available to try for free for 30 days. There is not an actual app, but can be accessed from any mobile browser.
