Keep your Family Connected with Moby

Last week we spent 10 days away. We need to get away from the house and just do something fun. So we took the kids to Disney World. Before we left we made sure that we downloaded all the apps we needed for the trip. One of my personal favorites turned out to be the Moby by Contigo App. This app helps keep families connected for free. 

 Available for the iPhone, iPad and Blackberry, Moby is a location sharing service that is private. Rather than having my entire network of friends in social media know where my children are. There are times I don’t want to broadcast their whereabouts over the internet. 
  • Find out where the hubs is before you ask him to pick up that one thing you forgot to get from the store that is for dinner. Saves him having to back track.
  • Ask a friend privately to pick up your child from school without the whole world knowing.
  • Track down your teen at the mall.
Moby is completely private and only you can enable who is aware of your profile and your location and for how long. If a friend or family member doesn’t have the Moby app just yet, you can send them an email or text with your location. Fully customizable, the Moby App keeps you connected with who you want and how you want.

Here’s some ways Mr. Right and I used the Moby App on our iPhones:

  • We kept in touch at Disney World. Instead of making a phone call and interrupting an attraction, we checked in and left a message. It worked perfectly. I could pinpoint on the map exactly where he was so my daughter and son and I could find him when we separated to ride different rides.

  •  With my daughter being gone a lot this summer we have been able to keep in touch and know where she is (provided her phone is charged).

  • There are days that I run errands all day long. My husband can see where I am and If I’m near a store or the post office so I can pick up something for work or check the mail. Saves us time and gas.

This video shows you how to use the Moby App:

I know that I’ll use this app when I attend Regionals so that I can find my friends while we are there with thousands of other attendees.  I have a niece that has medical issues this app would be perfect for my brother and his wife to keep us up to date when they need help or to keep in constant contact with each other about their daughters condition.

  1. Did you have any installation issues? This sounds so great, but when I got to Lication Services in my Settings, Moby isn't in the list for me to turn on the location services for it.


I love comments!!! I will try to reply to your comments. But please be patient. I have three kiddos in the house and sometimes I am a tad preoccupied.
