Best Apps for Parents
Too busy to cook dinner for your kids? Can't get your baby to sleep? There's an app for that. We've put together a list of the best mobile apps to make your life as a busy parent just a bit easier.
Apps for New and Expectant Parents
What to Expect app is a useful guide for Mums-to-be which guides you through your pregnancy day-by-day and week-by-week, with a personalized feed and countdown until your due date. Once your baby is born, the Wonder Weeks app will help you keep up with and track all the incredible developmental changes that your baby is going through. Web MD baby gives new parents quick access to baby health and wellness information at their fingertips.

Transport apps for parents on the go
Download Grab, Uber, or Comfort Delgro to book a ride on the fly. If you're traveling with your little ones, you can even book a car with a booster seat by selecting GrabFamily. Pricing of rides between apps are around the same range but will fluctuate depending on the level of demand on each app. We recommend having all three handy in case there are no rides available on one of the apps.
Sometimes Google Maps gets localized directions for public transport wrong, so we recommend using some home-grown apps with better localized data instead. Nestia, Citymapper, and Gothere.sg will help you map your journey by MRT, bus or LRT. Citymapper will even recommend which route will help you avoid the most heat! Nestia is a more comprehensive app that also gives bus arrival times, as well as information in other categories like property listings, and movies.
On-demand apps for busy parents
For those days when you don't have time to cook, you're too tired to wash dishes, or your kids have a specific craving, check out Deliveroo, Food Panda, or Uber Eats. All the apps strive to make a delivery within 30 minutes, so you'll only be able to order from restaurants within the vicinity of your home.
Besides food delivery, there's a slew of other on-demand apps in Singapore that can make your life easier. Redmart and Honestbee are big time savers for grocery shopping and delivery. KnockKnock will save you time on your laundry and dry cleaning errands. Servis Hero can take the headache away from finding a plumber or handyman when you have a home emergency.
Useful apps for organized parents
Cozi and Picniic are the Type A parents dream. These apps allow the family to keep the whole family on the same page by syncing their calendars, to-do lists, special events, shopping lists, family news, and recipes.

Popcorn and Nestia allow you to view movie show times and book movie tickets across Singapore to entertain the kids. Chope allows you to make online reservations at the best restaurants not only in Singapore, but also in Bangkok, Phuket, Jakarta, Bali, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
Other useful apps
Find the nearest playgrounds to you using Playground Buddy and keep your kids entertained.
Need a photo to renew your or your children's Singapore NRIC or passport? Instead of going to a photo booth, you can just use this app to take a cropped photo that you can submit online to ICA.
