The leading productivity tool for families with more than 17 million users, Cozi is a free app that manages the logistics of everyday life. It keeps track of everything from school schedules and sports activities, to grocery lists, meals and chores—all in one place the whole family can access anytime, anywhere.
Cozi helps families stay productive and connected with a suite of surprisingly easy-to-use tools:
Family Calendar: A color-coded calendar that lets you view an individual’s schedule or the whole family at once. Add or edit appointments that everyone in the family can see, set reminders so no one misses an important event, and get an agenda for the upcoming week emailed to any family member.
Shopping Lists: A grocery list the whole family can access in real time. Retrieve lists when you’re at the store and see items added by other family members when you’re on the go — no more coming home with everything but the one thing you really needed.
To Do Lists: Create a shared to do list, a honey-do list, or a chore list for the kids. Create as many lists as you want: emergency supplies list, packing checklists, camp supplies, and more.
Recipe Box and Meals: With Cozi’s Recipe Box, it’s easy to store all your recipes in one place. Add recipes from your favorite sites, drag and drop to schedule dinner ideas for the week, and add ingredients to your grocery list with one click.
Family Journal: Jot down a special moment and add a photo. Cozi’s journal is designed especially for busy parents, so it’s fast and easy to keep favorite memories you don’t want to forget.

Since using Cozi, we have been able to organize and prioritize ourselves in ways I could only imagine. The only regret I have with Cozi is that I didn’t start using it sooner.John
