Here in New Hampshire, at the Zco Corporation headquarters, the cool mornings have begun and the school buses are all getting ready to bring students to school. In honor of the changing seasons it is the perfect time to reflect and look at some of the great educational and parenting apps our clients have created.

CHORES FOR REWARDS

The creators of Chores for Rewards believed that positive behavior should be rewarded, and motivation should be a key to success. This app allows parents to control their child’s Android tablet or smartphone from their personal phone. Kids earn time in their favorite apps by completing chores, and app privileges can be revoked and restored by parents. The app is currently available on Google Play!

SAFETYSNAPP

The last app on our fall list is an app that helps parents in emergencies. This application has two parts, one for the child and one for the parent. The child app is simply a GPS tracker to keep the parents in the know about their child’s whereabouts. The parents’ app has a list of emergency contacts that can be notified if your child goes missing and can hold a child’s basic information to access at the tap of a finger. Along with being a safety app, SafetySnapp acts as a digital scrapbook and photos can be taken within the application. SafetySnapp can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play.
