Okay so parents aren’t necessarily the most savvy techs in the world. But they could certainly do with a few apps. These could make life much easier, so here is a millennial’s take on what apps would be great for parents to make use of.


  1. Vine

This is an app that allows parents to make videos from their iPhone and share them instantly with friends and family.  But don’t worry friends. You don’t have to sit through hours of video scenes. This app captures only seven seconds of the highlights and then lets you post these to your social media profiles.  This is an app that lets you create a whole album of family videos.

  1. Groupme

A great app which allows for group chats about certain subjects. This allows you to keep track of what you are talking about to each family member. So you want to chat about an upcoming concert with your sisters, put that in one group; but a chat will your mom and your aunt about a surprise birthday party can go in another category.

  1. Instagram

Parents your kids are not on Facebook any longer, they’ve moved to Instagram because you don’t need to upload thousands of pictures of one subject matter, and Instagram just lets you put up one picture at a time.  You can also add 15 second videos here.
