The founders of the 2homes app experienced communication with ex-partners as challenging. They also wanted a better organized daily life for themselves and their children. The kids were the main reason for setting out on the adventure that has become a complete logistics system for both mobile and desktop.
Mother of two, Anette Akselsen and father of three, Ole-Tom Bugge found that so many in their circles of friends and family, had the same challenges.
Anette or Ole-Tom recognized the same challenges with messages being lost, times mixed up and the kids having to take more responsibility. Not intentionally of course. So sparing the children of as much inconvenience as possible became a driving force for the development of a complete system for parents and children.
Alternating between homes can be stressful and tough. Anette and Ole-Tom wanted an app that would answer to as many need as possible, with no need to update and switching between several apps.
The 2homes tool can help ease everyday life for both parents and their children. All family members can share information through a joint and synchronized calendar. Other important features are the document library, and possibility to send and receive requests concerning the sharing of costs. To avoid the “He said”, She said” responses are saved, helping to prevent future discussions over who bought what, when and to whom. The app also includes very useful and flexible budget and accounting modules. 2homes is complete and ready for you now.
The developers wanted their kids to have a very own user interface customized for them as they don’t need to see all communication between the parents, or e.g. the budgeting or receipts for purchases made on behalf of the children. Not to forget sensitive informations about themselves.
2homes Kids is synchronized with both parent’s apps. The children have access to the events concerning them, along with messages from the parents. They can see what happens, when and where without confusion. Letting the kids be kids, and not the intermediates between the parents and separate homes will allow for a more clear and harmonious day to day life.
With relevant functions and user friendliness, and a goal of simplifying everyday life for the whole family, 2homes is everything you need in just one app. And with the option of private settings, each parent can keep all their appointments in one place.
2homes has gathered the communication around calendars, economy and documents so there is no need to juggle between a variety of apps. Everything is made practical and clear for the whole family.
“Our biggest wish for the app is that it will for relieve parents, and their children, of day to day challenges”, Ole-Tom and Anette concludes.
