Posted on by admin | in Uncategorized

As nannies, we are constantly on the go – we are going to the store, carpool, school, after-school events – the list is endless. These five apps, however, can help every busy nanny stay on top of her game! Note that all of these are free, though some do offer a paid version that offers additional features.

Key Ring

Tired of carrying around dozens of those little plastic store loyalty cards? Run into CVS, only to realize you forgot your card at home or forgot which number the card is associated with? Key Ring lets you scan all those loyalty cards into one easy app. It also allows you to sign up from the app to additional loyalty programs and sends coupons directly to your phone.

Red Laser  

If you’re thrifty and love to price shop, Red Laser is the app for you. The app allows you to scan bar codes while it finds the best prices, as well as where it’s located. Once located, you can decide if getting a cheaper price is worth the drive.


ColorNote is essentially like having post-it notes for your phone. You can make lists, jot down notes from a meeting or phone call and save it all to your phone. You can even color code for work, personal things, school and more.

Baby Connect

If you have infants or toddlers, Baby Connect is the one app you should have. You can share info with the parents by adding log feedings, naps, important notes and observations. All of this information is easily added  while baby is napping or you’re waiting in carpool for the older kids.


You arrive home with the kids and the light over the door has gone out. On top of that, you end up dropping your keys and you’re trying to juggle an infant and a toddler. Need a solution? Pull out your phone and turn on your flashlight.  The flashlight app is a great app for those quick needs and can be a lifesaver when the power is out or you find yourself in a dark place.

What app would you recommend to nannies as a must-have on the job?
