App of the Week | Mom Maps

One last travel app for you to add to your summer travel kit. Have a kiddo that needs to move? As in, we need to get out of this car right now! Mom Maps might be able to help you.

The idea behind this app is that you can look up kid friendly places that are near where you are. This can be especially helpful if you are on vacation in an unfamiliar location.
 Looking for a park so your kiddo can get out and run around? Just pull up the map and click on the geotags for more information, including reviews, about the parks.
As you can see in the first screenshot, the app also includes kid friendly restaurants, museums, and indoor spaces. This app gets mixed reviews, I think because it uses crowd sourcing, which means it's only as good as the people who are using it. You might be better off using a more well known app like Yelp and doing a specific search, but Mom Maps seems like it has a lot of potential.

What do you think? Have you used this app? Do you use a similar app to find a place to take a break?
