Keep Your Family on Track and Stay Connected

Here are the best apps for families that will help every family manage their day-to-day lives. From tracking, to chores, to medical safety, we have you covered.

Track Family Location

It's important to keep tabs on where your family members are for safety reasons, and it makes it easier to meet up. These apps help you do just that.

Find My Family, Friends, Phone

Find My Family, Friends, Phone

Life360

For those looking to coordinate with friends and family.

Life360 is a realtime, location-sharing app, and is the best way to coordinate with family and friends. Get automatic notifications when your family comes and goes from home, work and school, and when they complete drives. You can also share photos and text messages with their secure, private chat. Life360 allows you to see past location history for your Circle. It's also a reliable Cell Phone Tracker.

Why we love it

It's an easy to use app that connects your inner Circle.

Zenly - Best Friends Only

Find your friends and family in realtime

Zenly - Best Friends Only

For anyone who wants to know where their friends and families are at any given moment.

Zenly is a fantastic location sharing app for both friends and family. With Zenly, just invite the contacts you want, and then you'll be able to see where everyone is in realtime. This is different from Find My Friends because Zenly works on both iOS and Android, and makes it easy to contact your friends and family directly from within the app. You can also send them emojis, send messages to arrange a time to meet up, and even see their mobile device battery level. If you're picky about your own location, you can choose what your friends and family see. Plus, Zenly can generate a temporary link that shares your location with those who you don't have on the app, so it's easy to give them an ETA of your arrival.

Why we love it

Zenly is beautiful with bright and vivid graphics, inspirational quotes, and the location-tracking is fairly accurate. Plus it's great to see the other person's battery level and their location, since you can get an idea before their device runs out of juice.

Intuiplan, LLC

If you’re already managing your organization with the industry leading Jolt software, you know that it is designed to make managing any business automated and effortless. You know that it automatically creates a system of accountability and relieves employees of frustrating job contradictions. You also understand that now you can manage your entire organization from anywhere, with the confidence that comes from knowing that your systems are being executed exactly the way you intended! But, did you know that you can now access features from Jolt on your iOS device!

Features:

Communication Hub
No more posting memos all over your business! Simply allow Jolt to inform all of your employees about changes to your operations or procedures. You can rest assured that ALL your employees will stay up-to-date with the latest information you have for them.

Task Management
There is a lot more to your business than what a sheet of paper and a pencil can handle. Jolt's flexible task management system takes over where paper has failed. Jolt allows you to setup tasks and receive notifications if tasks are not completed on schedule.

Audits & Inspections
The Jolt Management System includes the ability to perform location audits and inspections. This gives management the tools they need to document deficiencies in operations and track their resolution. Jolt provides a customizable platform for you to accomplish each of your Audits and Inspections in a more efficient way--allowing you to get better results. Jolt gives you the ability to ensure that your employees are addressing critical elements of your business.

Employee Scheduling
The Jolt Scheduling system is an extremely powerful scheduling tool for managers and employees alike. With Jolt Scheduling, you no longer need to pay for other scheduling programs that require separate logins and don’t integrate directly into your operations.

Time & Attendance
The Jolt Time Clock system is an extremely powerful time and attendance tool for managers and employees alike. With Jolt Time Clock, you can eliminate the headaches you experience with your current time and attendance system, and you get the additional benefits that come with an all-in-one, integrated, single sign on system.

Employee Announcements
The Jolt Management System includes a fast and easy way to distribute information and policy changes to all your employees. Jolt’s Announcements are better than other forms of employee notices because they are displayed as an employee is clocking in for work. This eliminates the possibility of your important information being overlooked or not understood. With Jolt, you simply create an announcement and select which roles you would like to receive the information. Then, once an employee in that role clocks in, he or she will automatically be presented with that information. You will see a report indicating which of your employees have seen the information, when they completed the associated quiz, and how many attempts they required.

Date Code Labeling
The Jolt Management Platform transforms a standard label printer into an automated date code labeling system. Jolt date code labeling is one of the most cost effective labeling systems on the market. Labels are easily created and centrally managed using a cloud based management portal that allows you to add new date code items to all of your locations with a single click of a button. Labels are automatically printed with: Product Name, Preparer’s Name, Preparation Date, Expiration Phrase, Expiration Date, QR Code for Scanning.

Managerial Reports
Jolt organizes all of the information you need in one place. When third-party organizations such as the health department, government regulators, franchisors, etc. require documentation, you can be confident that you will have the required information available for them. Document retention functionality is standard! Now you can focus more on running your business and less on how you'll keep track of it.
