Even though I’ve always been a HUGE fan of pen and paper planners/calendars/etc. There is something so convenient about digital calendars and the ability to access all your information right from your phone and/or computer.
Dave and I figured that because we’re both gone so much, and because someone needs to be watching Nora, we really should capitalize on the enormous potential to stay organized, stay connected, and (most of all) stay up-to-date on what the other person is doing via our phones.
It just makes life that much simpler.
Plus, since we both have iPhones, we knew there just had to be an App for that!
So for the past few months, we’ve been using the brand new HeyWe App… and we love it.
I was trying to concisely explain the different features of the HeyWe App, but then I noticed they had a video that explained them all in about 1 minute — so I figured it would be easier to just share that video clip!
Dave and I love the text message feature (because we’re too cheap to pay for real text messaging) and if we had kids with phones, I think my favorite feature would be the map that allows you to quickly and easily see where the rest of your family is located — like ‘did the kids get home from school OK?’, ‘did your spouse make it to their appointment even with the icy roads?’, etc.
Another cool aspect is that you can have up to 10 people on one account which means you could add grandparents or other extended family members.
Oh, and it’s free — so that’s pretty cool too!
If you’re looking for a free App to keep your entire family organized and on-time, I’d highly recommend the HeyWe App.
And in case you’re wondering, I am still using my paper planner, my daily routine printables, and my to-do lists (I still can’t give them up just yet!) However, now that I’ve entered the world of digital calendars… I can see there are many advantages!
