Here are our family’s top 5 fave apps (in no particular order).
5% off every purchase even sale. I love the design and cut of their organic cotton kids wear. Plus they do make the perfect winter pull overs!
Great for on the go as no internet needed to use it. The perfect educational distractor for my Elmo obsessed Toddler.
TV & radio for all the family on the go. There’s always something to watch or listen to and the choice of live or archived is brilliant especially during road trips or stuck in hot, child unfriendly waiting rooms. Or just for grabbing five minutes of unadulterated, child-free loo time.
Now we’ve Baloo (our beloved family pooch), I now have one extra mouth to feed, life to sustain and zero extra time to spend! Gula a vet video consultation app allows me to check in instantly with any doggy Q’s I have, without having to pack up the kids and leave the house to attend a clinic.
Having a hobby is good for the mind and soul but Pinterest is more than that for me. Its helped me plan trips, dec out the kids room, stay in tune with fads and fashions and allowed me to be creative from the comfort of my couch. Its also gotten me through some gruelling late night/early morning breast feeding sessions, coffee can only do so much!
What apps do you swear by? We’d love to know so, drop us a comment below!

I’ve never shopped at GAP – shock horror. I love iPlayer, Netflix and Prime Video because I can download things to watch on my commute.
All good shouts, you should definitely try GAP!
Great list! I don’t have kids myself, but there were plenty for the child free too. I have just clicked through to Gula which looks like it could be a really handy resource as I have six older cats (two of which are bad at travelling). What a brilliant idea.
I have to admit that I love Pinterest too, but keep it only on my iPad so that I use my bus and other idol time a bit more productive than when I am on Pinterest. 😉
Oh my gosh I do the same with my pinning, I just have it on my kindle!
