Comprehensive Child-Rearing Apps

AppClose Helps Parents Meet Their Baby's Critical Needs

— March 12, 2021 — Lifestyle
AppClose is a new co-parenting app that makes the experience simple and stress-free. The platform allows co-parents, stepparents, family members, childcare providers, professionals, and other third parties, to store and share information conveniently on one platform.

This allows users to communicate, manage tasks, share appointments and events, track expenses, and send and receive money for reimbursement obligations via ipayou®, the app's built-in payment solution. In addition, AppClose allows users to attach receipts or documents and export and print any records.

The AppClose platform is not only enjoyed by co-parents, but is also popular among military and armed forces members, allowing them to receive and share information even while on assignment, during deployments, or amid special training.
