Android mobile phone users can now manage family memories and household paperwork on-the-go with a new, free application from AboutOne (www.AboutOne.com), the leading online family management system. The AboutOne Family Organizer application, currently in beta and available for immediate download from the Google Play store, makes it easy to manage life’s details within the regular flow of the day – no more accumulating piles of paper to file, no more lost documents, and no more wasted time spent searching for family information and paperwork.
“In addition to our current Windows Phone offering, we’re delighted to bring our Family Organizer app to the Android platform, and will be releasing our iPhone app later this month,” says founder and CEO Joanne Lang. “AboutOne is committed to helping customers get organized, save time and be prepared with access to the household information they need, when and how they need it. With AboutOne and our suite of mobile apps, a mom really does have family life in the palm of her hand.”
The password-protected Family Organizer app helps families save time and eliminate paper clutter. Right at the point of purchase, customers can snap a scan or photo of a receipt for a new possession and instantly add that item to their home inventory with links to warranty info, user’s guide and purchase place. These details will then be available for instant retrieval for returns or insurance claims, and in the next release, AboutOne will alert the user about relevant product recalls.
From the baseball game, the recital or on vacation, parents can snap and add photos to record special memories, along with quick notes about the occasion and links to the people involved. Those memories will then be shareable: privately through email or AboutOne’s automatic family newsletter, or publicly through push to Facebook and other social media platforms.
At the doctor’s office, parents will be able to use Family Organizer to quickly access their children’s health records and answer questions about medications, vaccinations and conditions. They can snap a scan of the health report and bill they receive and add them to AboutOne, along with links to relevant family members and other contacts, as well as notes and reminders about upcoming appointments. In an emergency, parents will have instant access to emergency contact information.
