Family Matters: Apps the whole family can enjoy together

As the long weekend approaches, CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson takes a look at apps that the whole family can enjoy together.

She spoke to the founder of Adventure Club as well as the founder of I'm Bored apps.

Adventure Clubs

Janelle Schroy, Founder of Adventure Clubs, hails from America. When she moved to Cape Town she wanted to explore the beauty of the city. Her challenge was not knowing which places to visit and she didn't have friends with which to visit sites.

She created a whatsApp group to invite other mom's to go on an adventures with their children. The membership grew and an app was developed.

The App could be found on Google Play as well as iTunes and its free.

I'm bored

I'm Bored App helps families find exciting events in the city and great places to visit.

Lorraine Steyn CEO of I’m Bored, says the idea came when she was looking for exciting things to do with her son who would constantly say 'I'm bored'.

She says she wanted to provide a platform to smaller community events.

The services are easily accessible through the I’m Bored mobile app (for Android users) or the in-Facebook App.
