YugglerFall 2015 Mobile Apps
What is Yuggler? According to its creators, this children's activity locator, got its name from the combination of "youngster" and "juggler;" in other words, they recognize that parents and caregivers are constantly juggling their responsibilities to home, family, work and community. After creating a free account online, users can either share their location or select a location to begin their activities search. The search can be customized by selecting the genders and ages of their children, the weather, the season and the cost and/or duration of the activities. Searches are further customizable by type of activity (including, but not limited to): animals, camps, classes, attractions, parks, sports and accommodations.
The app does more than just list and map possible activities, it provides detailed information (e.g., hours, prices, etc.), photographs and even reviews from other parents.
By using this app, I was able to find several activities and locations of which I was not previously aware! And, this is an extremely timely app, because we are far enough into the summer that "I'm bored" is a daily utterance.
