Figtree’s five favourite apps for families

In a world where smartphones and tablets are ubiquitous, there are thousands of apps out there promising to revolutionise our lives. So this month we thought we’d share a few of our favourites that really can make family life a little simpler.


myHomework is a simple student planner to help your child stay on top of their studies. From keeping track of homework to sending assignment due date reminders, it syncs across all devices to provide a single, pocket-sized way to stay organised.


Flipd is designed to improve focus and boost motivation. The app includes a Wellness Hub, with a range of mindfulness exercises, inspirational podcasts and sleep stories to promote happier, healthier studying.


SimpleMind is ideal for visual learners. Its mind maps are great for brainstorming, helping school students to university graduates organise and analyse their thoughts more effectively.


RoosterMoney has brought pocket money into the 21st century. Everyone can see how much is in the account, and children can set savings goals to aim for. In our increasingly cashless society, it’s an easy, secure way to teach children the value of money.


Remember The Milk helps keep busy families connected and on track. You can create and share to-do lists, allocate tasks and receive reminders across devices. It’s a simple solution that helps lighten the mental load.


You can find out more about RoosterMoney – and receive your exclusive discount code – in this month’s interview with the app’s Head of Marketing, James Kassam.
