Perfect App for Us, Parents : ParentTown App
Parents today are just so lucky because we all have workshops, and talks here and there. We could ask an expert regarding our little one’s food for example. But unfortunately not all parents could attend such event. Maybe they’re too far from where it’s held and the like. I, myself wanted to attend an event before but it was too far from where I live so that didn’t happen. Or maybe if you’re in your third trimester already, of course it would be too hard to travel. Plus, you would be shedding some money for it of course. Travel expense, workshop fee, though there are also workshop events for free.
When I was pregnant with Maco, I was so clueless. If only I could attend all the workshops I knew then, I would! And then I chanced upon a website that have a forum on it so I made an account and there I would ask questions, answer the other parents and all. Unfortunately though I wasn’t able to continue it as much as I hoped for because the website’s hard to configure on phones and on tablets. And I use my phone most of the time! And mostly, I would forget my password. I think the epidural still kicks in!
Now, I found this app called ParentTown on Google Playstore. And I got excited to use it! Oh my, being a mom and have an app built for you! Well, not just for moms of course, but to all parents out there. I personally think this app is a must for us, the parents!
Now let me share with you on how to install it on your phone/tablet.
H O W T O I N S T A L L T H E A P P
Go to Google Playstore if you’re using an Android phone/tablet or the App Store if you’re using an iPhone or iPad.
Search ParentTown on your gadget, and tap install.
It was easy as 1, 2 , 3. You could log-in using your Google account or your Facebook account. If you don’t have both, what’s up with you!? Lol kidding!
You will be asked if you’re Expecting a Baby or not.
And then, if you have a baby already.
After that, you will be asked to click on the Topics you’re interested in. I personally chose most of it because why not!
As you can see, I chose all of those under the ‘Toddler’ topic because well, isn’t that too obvious.

Now that you’ve installed the app and have an account already,
let me share with you on how to use the app.
On the Home tab you will see the topics you’re interested in. You could scroll through it, and even ask your own question.
On the Photobooth tab you will see the photos the other parents uploaded. And of course, you can upload your own photos on it.
On the Topics tab you will see the topics you chose that you’re interested in. You could follow and unfollow it there.
On the TV tab you will see upcoming sessions with the experts. There would be Q&A, wherein an expert would answer our questions. But in case you missed the session, don’t worry as it is recorded and you will be able to watch it again! Yay right?!
If you have a question that you think have been asked before already, you could just tap the search button on the upper right, and you could type in what you want to search for.
I’ve been using the app for days now and I’m loving it! I actually answered some questions already and even asked a question myself. It did help me! Not sure how and why but having the other parents answer me made me at ease. Plus, it’s so easy to use! If you have facebook or instagram, you would definitely know how to use this.
It’s such a great app for parents like myself. It’s so fun to talk with other moms and dads in the app! You could just scroll and scroll, and you would be surprised with all the things you’re learning from the other moms and dads, and of course from the experts in the app! It’s like you attended a workshop but in your pambahay and in the comfort of your own home.
Parents out there, I strongly suggest you try this app out! And if you did, I know you would love it! But hey, don’t forget about your little ones, you might get too excited with the app like I did! Hehe ;)
