Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. Today we are featuring iKidNY which helps parents navigate New York City with kids. Great apps come from great moms, and creator Lara Serebrier Paul is indeed one of those. Lara is a Harlem resident and native New Yorker who wanted an easier solution for finding kid-friendly spaces in the Big City. As an extra bonus, the children’s storybook A Day in New York City with Noah will be offered alongside iKidNY for our FREE #appfriday promotion.
What is the app about?
Developed for New York City moms and dads on the move, iKidNY is an app that helps you find kid-friendly locations while out and about. It includes parks, playgrounds, changing tables, indoor playspaces, museums, libraries, subway stations with elevators, kid-friendly restaurants, and more. One click on the iKidNY guide will bring you information and directions to your nearest sanity-saving location. Got kids? Headed to NYC? Consider this app a no-brainer.
Why is it special?
It’s developed by a Mom who knows the true definition of kid-friendly. So yes, changing table locations, and subways with elevators (to accommodate strollers) are key features. In addition, the app has one touch navigation, interactive neighborhood maps, auto-connections to phone numbers and websites, and the ability to customize the app by plotting your favorite locations.
