Have you ever heard of the Cozi Family Organizer app?
Being a parent is not an easy task, especially if you have several kids under your watch. Being a good parent means constantly supervising children in and out of the house, all while managing grocery lists and other day-to-day activities. Due to the sheer number of tasks a parent undertakes, you may forget a thing or to, or overlook the things that matter.
If you always find yourself forgetting something, you may want to consider trying out a helpful smartphone app. It can make life easier, and more organized for parents who run on a tight schedule.
The Cozi Family Organizer helps people manage their daily life, as well as keep the entire family in the loop. It is a 3-time Mom’s Choice Award Winner, which speaks a lot about how this app has helped millions of families around the world remember the most important things in life without breaking a sweat.
The app’s brilliant shared calendar is its most important feature. It’s where parents can put their schedule for the day, week, month, or even a year. The shared family calendar is colour-coded so it’s very easy to view an individual’s schedule. All it takes is a tap to add or edit appointments that everyone in the family can see. For very important events, you can set an alarm so that when they’re about to happen, the bell will go off to give you a reminder.
The Shopping lists tab on Cozi is also a real winner. The shared grocery lists function allows everyone to see what he or she needs to buy before going home. Kids can add items on the shopping list on the go so mom and dad can prepare what they need for school the following day. The shopping list can be viewed via the Apple Watch, which makes shopping hands-free.
Now here’s what makes Cozi really special. The family journal isn’t just about an online diary where everyone can jot down words; parents can add photos from those special moments that they want to immortalize. It’s quick and easy to use, and makes experiences more memorable, special, and visual.
The Cozi Family Organizer app is a testament to how technology has advanced, and initiated the shift from regular computing devices to smartphones of late due to their practicality. While gaming is still one of the major reasons for owning a smartphone as well texting and phoning people, with developers launching products varying from classic casino titles to alternative cuddly-themed games to target various demographics, lifestyle apps are quickly gaining popularity, and the Cozi Family Organizer app is proof of this. Apart from being a 3-time Mom’s Choice Award winner, it was also named a “must-have app” for a better life by the TODAY Show.
The app is available for the iPhone, Android devices, and Windows phones.

I tried out Cozi a while ago and I really liked it. I tried to use it with my son’s father so we could keep in touch about important events/appointments but he didn’t even try too use it, unfortunately. This is a great app for parents that need to keep track of multiple kids schedules.
I love apps that make my life easier and this one looks like it would do just that! Thanks for letting us know about it.
Brianna George says
I am definitely going to look into this app! My family could use this kind of organization with our nutty schedules as of late:)
I have heard of Cozi and have been meaning to give it a try. Sounds like something that might make my life a little more organized!
Claudia Krusch says
I haven’t heard about this app before but it sounds great! I need to check it out.
Dawn Nieves says
I haven’t heard about this app before but I Iike he sound of it! I need to check it out.
I actually met them at conference. It is helpful with a busy family and everyone on different schedules!
We use this, but my husband still keeps asking when things are happening! LOL! I love using it and the kids each get a copy in their inbox too!
Dana Peller (@Pellerini) says
This is my absolutely favorite app on my phone hands down! I store all of my shopping lists, our family calendar, to do list and more on this one AWESOME app!!!
BB has heard good things about the app. With 3 little ones, my daughter could probably use something like this. Gracias for the recommendation. BB2U
This sounds like a very nifty app. I’m still old school and use a dry erase calendar at home for keeping track of things. If I ever go digital, I’ll have to look into this app!
Vera Sweeney says
This sounds like the perfect app for staying organized with kids! I know my kids have so many activities it can be hard to keep track of everything.
Stephanie Pass says
This sounds really nice. Our iPhones are not dependable to share a calendar. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don’t
No I haven’t but anything helping me with organizing is a win.
Heather (@TownsendHouse1) says
I have read a lot about people using this app. I haven’t tried it myself, maybe I should! I am much better with a paper planner and calendar on the fridge.
I tried to use this app, but then removed it. I think I will give Cozi a try again as so many others recommend it. Glad you reminded me of this!
Mommy Pehpot says
This is my first time to hear about this organizer. With 5 kids, I am sure the Cozi Family Organizer is what I need.
Colette S says
I”ve researched this app before to use with my phione.
It just wasn’t in my budget at the time, but it’s a very good app. .
I know that they do have a free one you can use minus the bells and whistles of the paid version.
Miss Rika Agustini (@thedealmatch) says
I have to check out this app! Sounds very useful and neat! Love it
Oh wow!! My family needs this. Especially the calendar. We are never in sync with our appointments. Thanks for sharing
Jeanine Macintosh says
Sounds like an app that I should look into. Anything to simplify things in my life would be great!
Jasmine Eclipse says
I love anything related to organization. I’ve always been a paper agenda type of gal, but recently got a new iPhone, so I started organizing calendars digitally as well. While I don’t have a family of my own yet, I can still appreciate a good app that helps with the process! (Especially the shared calendar feature!)
Kristen Dann says
I haven’t heard of this app but it’s something I definitely need. Between work, kids, and sports it gets hectic around here and keeping everything organized has been a task within itself.
michele d says
Sounds like an app that would be helpful in my lifestyle. I’ll be sure to check it out.
Robin Rue says
What a great app this sounds like. I am all for getting a little more organization in my life. I will check it out.
Eileen Mendoza Loya says
I love how this can make my life a whole lot easier! So many times I have come home only to go out again because the kids need some things for school the following day. I love that this is a shared app! Checking this app out. Awesome!
This is such a great idea and I really like the journal portion of this app. Keeping organized is so hard and most parents have a smartphone so this is a great app worth checking out!
Amanda Love says
I’ve heard of it but have never really used it. I have so many apps on my phone that I need to delete a few of them. 🙂
Rebecca Swenor says
This sounds like a great app for any family. I could really use this app because I am so unorganized and I will have to share this with my sisters too. Thanks for sharing the app.
I have looked into this app but really my husband isn’t organized and I use other apps to keep me together. I love the idea and I know tons of people that loves the app!
Jill Conyers (@jillconyers) says
I’ve never heard of this app but it sounds great. Very efficient for a busy family.
Dawn McAlexander (@TheNewClassy) says
I have not heard of this but I could definitely use this app. I am off to check it out now.
I LOVE Cozi. Discovered it several years back and have recently started using it again.
Rose Sahetapy says
This sound a great app though I’ve never heard about it, but your review makes me curious. I’ll check this app for sure.
I am always forgetting things or getting mixed up on dates. This sounds like it would be so helpful for me.
We use Cozi for our grocery list. I love it. My husband knows what I need if he runs to the store on his way home from work. I think I need to try the calendar.
WE use a shared calendar and it was a life saver for our family! It makes everything so much easier to have it on a calendar.
This looks like a great app to keep organized, thanks for sharing Cozi with us!
Rachel Langer says
We really need this in our life! I am going to download it ASAP!
Rebecca Bryant says
what a great app fro everyday life. It would be very useful.
Jeanine Macintosh says
I have never heard of this before! Sounds like a really great app I will have to check out! Sounds like with our busy family it would be worth while!
Liz Mays says
This sounds super helpful for everyday life! I know I have trouble staying on track sometimes.
I’ve heard of the Cozy Family app. I am definitely working on being more organized so I think I may download and purchase it.
Mrs. AOK says
I totally forgot about Cozi!! I used to have this app on my old phone, it was great. I used it for an online magazine I was a part of a few years back.
I should totally use it again for my family.
Thanks for the reminder. 🙂
Heather @ Kraus House Mom says
I used to use this app all the time, but once my husband got a new phone we could no longer sync accounts. Unfortunately we deleted it. It was so helpful, I loved it.
tiaras and tantrums says
I have not ever heard of this app – someone told me about a year ago to get an online app to help me juggle schedules. I tend to forget things if they are not written down – I still use a pen and calendar.
Dawn gibson-thigpen says
this app is new to me but it sounds like something everyone could use. thanks for the share
Taylor Ebner says
This sounds like exactly what my family needs. We always end up last-minute rushing because we forgot about something or forgot to tell the rest of the family. This sounds like a perfect app!
Pam Wattenbarger says
This sounds like a great app. I love that it is easy to share appointments with others in the family.
Terri Steffes says
Fantastic app! Used it a lot more when our daughter was in college and we never knew where she was! She was fantastic about writing in her weekly schedule. LOVED it. She was also extra good in writing in her grocery list! 🙂
I love the grocery list! I used to have pieces of paper tucked in my purse which I almost always lost when I actually got to the store. No wonder I end up going more than once in a week!
Never heard of this app, but I thinK I need to check it out. I am not the most organized of people out there.
I like to pretend I am more organized that I really am… I’m notorious for forgetting appointments and then end up having to cancel when they call to confirm my appointment!
Alli Smith says
I’ll have to check out the Cozi Family Organizer app. I’ve never heard of this one and it would really get our family organized and synchronized.
Exactly! With 3 kids and busy schedules it can be tricky to keep organized that’s for sure.
