KarPooler(TM) iPhone App Saves Time and Gives Peace Of Mind to Busy Parents
MIAMI, May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — KarPooler(TM) (www.KarPooler.com) is a free utility app for the iPhone, designed by a husband-and-wife team, that enables adults who carpool children to school and other activities to communicate with the other adults and/or the children in their carpool(s) more quickly and efficiently, therefore reducing stress and wasted time.
“KarPooler(TM) was born out of a real life situation -”what I call ‘The Perfect Storm’,” said Dalit Moskona, a mother of two. “I was running late for my school pickup and it started to drizzle. I desperately tried to contact the other parents in the carpool to ask for backup, while worrying that the children wouldn’t know whether to meet me in the ‘regular’ place or the ‘bad weather’ location. And to top it all off, since no one could come to the rescue, I had to reach out to another person outside the carpool, make sure the other parents were OK with that, and then let the kids know that someone else was picking them up. It was absolutely nerve-wrecking.”
KarPooler(TM) has three main functionalities, all accessible at the push of one button:
1. The adults in the carpool can simultaneously contact via text all the other adults (i.e.: drivers, guardians) who are linked to the children in a specific carpool. This feature is exceptionally useful when organizing or scheduling a carpool, and it shines in case of last-minute changes, unforeseen events, or emergencies when you have to ask for help in in a hurry.
2. Adults can reach out to all the children in the carpool simultaneously via text in case of changes or other eventualities. All messages sent to the children are automatically copied to their guardians, too.
3. With the press of a single button, DropCheck(TM) allows the driver to notify each individual adult via personalized text that their child has been dropped off safely at the predetermined location. This feature is particularly useful for adults who are away from home and wish to keep close tabs on their children after school.
“Set up is really simple and intuitive,” says Amiel Moskona. “You create a KarPool, name it, and enter the names and cell numbers of the children and the name(s) and cell number(s) of their responsible adult(s) (parents, relatives, legal guardians, friends). You can do that either manually or from your address book. That’s all. The purpose of KarPooler(TM) is to simplify parents’ busy and stressful life and give them some extra peace of mind.”
The free version of KarPooler(TM) provides the user full functionality for one carpool. For a $0.99 upgrade users can create and manage unlimited carpools if they have multiple activities and/or children. KarPooler(TM) is also an excellent communication tool for anyone who belongs to groups or organizations, such as: Little league coaches, PTA members, book clubs, ride-to-work carpools, and even at work.
