5 Back to School Apps for Parents
Summer is coming to an end and school is about to be in session. Preparing your kids to go back to school means running around town shopping for school supplies, coordinating schedules and getting back into study routines. Staying organized during this busy time is important, which is why we’ve found five back to school apps to help you get ready for the new school year.
While there are so many useful apps available, having your device mounted in a safe, sturdy and portable mount is essential for keeping your day organized. We have custom Phone Holders that are compatible with all of our Phone Mounts, which means you can easily move your phone from your car, to your shopping cart, back to the car and then into the house.
Perhaps you prefer to use the apps on your iPad. Not a problem! You can conveniently access your tablet with our iPad Tablet MultiStand. The MultiStand can be placed on the kitchen counter, hung up on a wall, placed on a desk or table or even sits comfortably on your lap!

5 Apps to Help Parents Get Ready for Back to School Season
Having your phone and tablet safely secured in a holder and mount will take away some stress of the back to school season, here are five apps that will help with the rest.
Back to school season means back to school shopping, which can get expensive. ShopSavvy can help ease the financial burden of getting the kids ready. This app allows you to search for sales from all of your favorite stores. ShopSavvy allows you to scan barcodes to help you find the best price in your area.
Going back to school means juggling practice schedules and after school activities. Cozi is a great app for keeping every family member’s schedule in one convenient place.
