The Moby by Contigo App helps keep families connected for free. Available for the iPhone, iPad and Blackberry right now, Moby is a location sharing service that is private. Want to know when your husband will be home without interrupting his meeting? Can’t find your teen at the mall? Need to ask your friend know to pick up your child from school? Want to let your family know that you arrived after a long car trip? Moby can help you do that.
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 my husband 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 when I wanted my husband to pick up a snack for me from one of the parks. Sometimes, a craving is very important!
- At a large outlet mall, my husband lost track of me, so he checked in asking me where I was. He even asked about a gift we needed to buy for a neighbor. That saved me time and energy to go to the store he was at. And yes, we found each other. And yes, I was spending money.
- We invited my mother-in-law because my father-in-law is very sick. We want a quick and private way to stay connected.
- I sent an Alert when our daughter wasn’t feeling well two weeks ago. It turned out that it was a false alarm, but with her medical conditions I need to be able to stay in touch with my family quickly. If it was serious, the Alert would have been sent to my mother-in-law who is a nurse and a call would have been made to our daughter’s doctor by one of us.

I know that I’ll use this app when I attend conferences again to stay connected with friends. I’m also going to share it with family who come to visit us in our Florida.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Moby and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
