Important News Post #1: New iPhone App just for NYC parents!

October 20, 2009 at 11:25 pm Leave a comment

I just dished out $2.99 for the brand new app IKidNY. It’s using my current location. And with that, it’s going to tell me the closest:
1) Outdoor Activities
2) Indoor Activities
3) Restaurants
4) Changing Tables
5) Subway Elevators

So far, looks genius (though I hope to see a Baby Shopping feature added soon). Who is this mom who invented it? And who is the graphics wiz who came up with the super-cute and user-friendly interface (so this is what you get when you actually pay for apps!)?

Just to give it a whirl, I’ll look up Outdoor Activities in our area…Thinking…Thinking…Now I get a map of Manhattan and choose an area – or search for what’s closest to me…And I get Hudson River Park, two playgrounds, and a Beach Cafe and Volleyball Court I know I’ll be visiting next summer. You get the address. And can quickly get directions.
And can add it to favorites.

I can see this becoming a very handy tool when a group of moms with babies is looking for a kid-friendly restaurant in the area (like my friends and I were earlier today) that won’t mind parents playing the Mozart Cube to their kids for all to hear (like I was earlier today ;).
