Millions of families rely on Mommy Poppins to find the coolest stuff for kids in NYC, New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut, Boston and LA. But once you are out and about it's hard to access all our great info. That's about to change. The Mommy Poppins App will allow you to find all the great places we write about on our sites, places to create, be active, learn, shop, eat and more, all on your phone.
There are other "mom" apps out there, but none of them bring the thoughtfulness and thoroughness of our curated content, easy navigation to find what you're looking for, and personal editorial style of the Mommy Poppins website. As the founder of Mommy Poppins, I am personally editing each and every location in our NYC app, checking it for accuracy and making sure we have all the great locations in all 5 boros that deserve to be there (500 locations and counting). We will take the same thorough approach on all our regions.
This app isn't a distant pie-in-the-sky dream. Our platform is developed and we are just editing our locations for the NYC app. If you contribute, you will be able to download the NYC iphone app within a week of the end of the campaign (sooner if we become fully funded sooner) and we will begin working on our other regions right away.
Anyone who contributes at any level will get a free copy of the app, whether we reach our goal or not.
Creating an app is lots of work and expense, but like our site, we want to make it free and accessible to everyone.
- If we raise $6000 we will make the iphone app for all of our regions absolutely free. The NYC app beta will launch at the end of June 2013 and we will launch other regions shortly after that.
- If we raise $9,000 we will be able to develop an android app and make that free as well.
- If we raise $15,000 we will be able to develop a 2.0 version of the app that will include our entire event calendar so that you will be able to find events near you from your phone!
We hope that you are excited about this app and want to pay it forward to make the app free for everyone, however, to make it extra fun and rewarding, we've created some great perks to reward you for your contribution—including Mommy Poppin swag, invites to our swank launch party or even getting your child included in the app. Check the perks at right for all the rewards on offer.
Get Some Mommy Poppins Swag
We have lot of great perks for contributors. See all the levels at right. Below are images of the Mommy Poppins T-Shirts and Tote Bags:
Kids T-Shirts in Purple, Lime and Teal (Kids Sizes S, M, L)
Toddler T-Shirt (12mos or 2T)
Tote bag (Approx. 14" x15")
Your kids can never complain of being bored while wearing their Mommy Poppins tee. Each one is a check list of the kids bucket list items from our post "100 Things to Do with Kids in NYC Before They Grow Up." Feel free to use them as souvenirs of your adventures in NYC and check items off as you go or just represent your spirit of adventure as a Mommy Poppins reader.
