Hi, my name is Vanessa, and today's video podcasts are going to be about a coparenting app named App Close. My favorite is thing number one about this app is that it is free. Now that is amazing to me because so many of these coparenting apps and you'll know what I'm talking about, if you've been paying attention to cofairing apps are not free. They're not cheap, they're not inexpensive. They're incredibly, in my opinion, expensive for most people because there's a monthly recurring a payment from what I've seen, many of them, that can be upwards of $30 a month, approximately. And that definitely adds up. If let's say you have a toddler that for the next, umpteen years are going to need you to have a coparenting app in order to coparent. I mean, if you add that up, that's a ton of money, basically over many, many, many years. And with recessions and finances getting tight, I think that a lot of people would be concerned for sure about the cost of their potential coparenting app. So that's why today I'm going to be talking about a free coparenting app. It's advertised as free. It's free as far as I know it is. And I've been testing it out and I definitely really like the graphics of it. And I would love to hear about your thoughts on coparenting apps if you have ever utilized one. If so, did you like it? Did you love it? Did you hate it? Why or why not? And also, are there coparenting apps that you're curious about that you'd like me to kind of talk about and cover and do maybe a little bit of a demonstration of? Just to be clear, I am not working at all with the company App Close. And this is not at all promotional. Like, no one reached out to me. I'm just doing this because co parenting apps are very relevant to family mediation work. I mean, they're literally brought up in family mediations in my experience in Florida. And they're actually written into, if all parties want that, into the parenting plan. And so even when people go to court, people will bring up and up utilizing co parenting apps of different types. So there's many of them out there. They're all unique. They all have different price points potentially to include free, in some cases, potentially. And so, yeah, today I'm covering an advertised app that's supposed to be free, advertisers that's called App Close at this time and recording August 5, 2022. And so this is basically the home screen right there. My favorite thing about let me try to get the focus. My ring light is having a hard time, like getting in the light. Okay, alright. There you can see a little bit. So my favorite thing about the app, besides the fact that Advertisers free, is the fact that the graphics are absolutely gorgeous. They just are. That is my favorite thing. I think I'm going to adjust my camera a little bit and take off possibly the blur that I have on from my background because it's definitely causing some clarity issues with my camera. Okay, there we go. So blur is now off. Let's see if they can work a little bit better. Still having some issues with the light. It's like chasing around my phone. All right, you can kind of see a little bit better there. It's having some issues still, but right there in the graphics. I really like the graphics. They're very pretty. These are the different months throughout the year and there's a lot of beautiful artistry. I really am into graphic design. It's something I really like and sensitive about. And I just really love software that has a lot of functionality anddetailed camera calendar there. Sorry.


All right. And I'm showing you basically a parenting category. It says me time. Worksprofessionals are a couple of examples. If you click on one of the categories like Me time, it will have appointments, event, sports. And then you can click on one of those


and then it says Add calendars, basically. And for each category, it literally adds a calendar. So you can choose to share with whoever you choose to share with. There's a share button. It's different colors, color coded. And then you can save it. See the orange save buttons at the top?


Okay, I thought I fixed it. Now it's going to do something else. It's like so much reflection here.


Okay. It's like doing so many different things. My phone is not working very well right now. Anyways, it's basically just a regular calendar that it shows you. And it says that basically you can communicate also about you name. It has like a messaging app. This is very common in a lot of apps I'm seeing these days, not just with this, but also with any kind of app that allows for anything. For example, I use an app for safety, which sounds kind of creepy, but basically tracks my movements and I can share it with people that are close to me or anyone I want. And the purpose of that is to keep me safe, essentially, especially if I'm out and about doing whatever I do. And in the app there's messaging feature. There's another app I utilize which is for scheduling, for personal stuff. Well, another thing too, mainly personal stuff. And that app also allows for family messaging. It's aimed at families and family events. And so this app is no different in that it has a messaging feature. It seems like more and more of these apps, whether it's a co parenting app or whether it's some other app, are trying to really focus on mimicking, like a text messaging phone environment, but with while also adding extra features and extra perks. And so that's basically what I see happening. Here. Now, it also says that essentially you can get transfer money by linking your checking or savings account. It says it goes in detail. You can easily send and receive payments and track and record any expenses paid or received. And so then it has more information about that. You have to check that out. And then I love this, and basically saying you can create your circle, okay, and kind of see it right there, adding a co parent, child, guardian, client, and or third party here. And then the little orange button, you can actually click that and then add the person that you want to be in your circle. So, for example, that's your ex spouse. That would be the person or guardian ad item, for example. All of those would be examples of people that you may want to share information with. So the app, while it's very detailed and everything, also is pretty simplistic on a lot of different ways. And everything I just covered really kind of outlines the app as I see it after testing it out. And so obviously not using it to co parents, anyone at all. So that's something to keep in mind, and you'd absolutely have to test it out yourself and see, is this something that I like? Something I don't like? Is this what I thought it would be? Is it not what I thought it would be? But that's the thing about really, software, and that's why I'm constantly testing software. I love software. I love technology, but not all technologies and not all softwares are for everyone. Not all apps are for everyone. I've tried a lot of different technologies and softwares, and I've disliked many of them. I've disliked many apps. So with this stuff, it's really all about what you're comfortable with and how it works for you and your life. And there are still people out there no shame. If you're one of the people that really want to use like pen and paper, pencil and paper and stuff like that, hey, that works for you, great. There are people that don't need apps, are able to use text messages or emails, phone, you know, whatever, and that works great for them. But then there are other people who really need these coparenting apps, and it really seems like it helps them co parent. And that's really the whole point of it, finding what works for you.
