We recently released a new update to MamaBear in the Google Play and iTunes stores with a focus on connecting the family.  Prior to app version 4.0 the child’s view of the app was a separate interface with limited check in features. Our family empathy research and your feedback lead us to redesign the child view so all family members have a similar experience with a desire to find each other and share custom messages and images with their check ins.

Check out the new features of MamaBear 4.0:

A redesign for the kids in the family 

  • A news feed of their own compiles messages and check ins.
  • Kids can check in with a custom messages, a selfie or choose from a new set of emoticons.
  • Now with a map view, kids have a chance to see all family members’ location.

Optional guardian location sharing

  • Guardians in the family can turn location sharing on and off to be included on the family map view for all family members.
You may have also noticed, we’ve been adding digital parenting news and resources to your news feed to help keep you in the know. And that’s just the beginning.  Our mission to connect families is full steam ahead as we build on these features in upcoming releases. You’ll love what we have in store. Visit the Google Play and iTunes store to update or if you’re on auto-update, open the app and explore what’s new.
