New, Free App for Finding Family Activities in Vancouver: OnTheGoKids

About a week ago, during Afternoon Tea at VanDusen Botanical Garden’s Truffles Cafe, I met Annemarie Tempelman-Kluit: Vancouverite, mom, and the founder of yoyomama, a parent- and kid-related resource for families across the Lower Mainland. As a busy, on-the-go parent, Annemarie knew first-hand how frustrating it can be to find things to do with the kids on any given day (I feel her pain!), so she and yoyomamma created “an app for that:” OnTheGoKids, a free iPhone app for finding kid and family activities in Vancouver.

OnTheGoKidsis a fabulous way to find family-friendly activities in Vancouver. It’s intuitive and easy to use, and ideal for finding something to do when you’re already out-and-about/in the car. Users can search for activities by location (including GPS directions and maps), by cost (e.g., “free”), or by type (e.g., “Sports & Recreation,” “Festivals & Fairs”). Users can also save and bookmark favourites, browse events by venue or date, and share picks via Facebook and Twitter.

Another cool feature of OnTheGoKids is that all the information is stored on your phone, making the app extremely fast and allowing it to work offline even if data roaming is turned off (so users can still access all the info).

As a mom myself, I was very impressed by both OnTheGoKids and Ms. Tempelman-Kluit; it’s awesome to see another Vancouver-based entrepreneur creating such fantastic resources (yoyomama and OnTheGoKids) for busy parents/caregivers!

OnTheGoKids is available for free at iTunes. If you use it, come back and let us know what you think!
