An App to help get kids “Out to Play” with their Friends

Horizon Park Snack Ideas Kids Playing in Playground SetIt’s always nice to get outside and play and it’s even better when they get to go outside and play with their friends. Living here in southern California it’s very hot so people don’t keep their front doors open. It’s always nice to get out and play with your friends in the neighborhood and we encourage our children to do just that. That’s why we are happy to partner with ScreenDoor on this post.

Now there’s an app for that, because there’s an app for everything! Let me introduce you to ScreenDoor, the app that to removes the guesswork out of which of your kids’ friends are available to play today (or right now!). screendoor

Just connect on the app privately with your kids’ friends’ parents and, when your kid is free to play, simply: 1) press a button and let your private circle know that your kid is available to play today, and/or 2) see, at a glance, which of your kids’ friends are free to play, all in real-time. Then, send the kids out to play!

It’s nice because I can easily connect it with my friends on Facebook and use the app as an easy way to contact my friends and my children’s friends parents if need be.  What I really like is that ScreenDoor easily allows you to see, within a secure private network, which of your child’s friends are available to play…right now. See all the open ScreenDoors in your personal, extended “neighborhood” and get the kids together!

You can start today by downloading the ScreenDoor App.

    Technology is really amazing! This sounds like a really helpful app to use. I love anything that gets kids off the sofa and outside in the fresh air enjoying themselves.

    What a smart app to have. I like that you can connect it to Facebook to add your friends quicker and easier. My kids don’t have their own cell phone so it’s not like they can just call up their friends to ask so if I could pop on the app and see at a glance if their friends can play… that’s cool!

    This seems so nifty and handy! I love this for the convenience and helping to facilitate play time.

    This seems like a really cool app! It can be tough to coordinate with other parents to get the kids together to play.

    I agree with others. It’s a sign of the times. What will they think of next?

    All that to say, pretty nifty.

    Wow this app is definitely awesome, I like that you can show privately to other parents that your child (or children) is free to play or not. It takes the guess work and plus no children will be arriving with your child being unable to come out and etc.

    That’s a pretty cool app! Though I do wish kids would still knock on other kids door…then again I don’t know if they still do (childless over here, for now! Lol)

    Very nice! Saves the time of calling & returning calls – being disappointed as a kid and now having it all organized and ready –

    What a cool concept I really like this idea specially for parents too. I’ll be checking it out for my son. .

    What a neat app. I think it’s important to get the kids out and play.

    What a neat app! I remember how much my mom used to be annoyed by kids knocking on our door all the time, I see how this can be useful to parents.

    What a crazy, crazy world that there is an app for when your kids friends are outside playing. I can see the value and think it is so cool, but still so funny that this is an app.

    This is perfect for the friends that aren’t on our street. Using this app, I could easily check before sending my kids out the door!

    That does seem like a really handy app to have. It’s nothing like it used to be when I was younger.. before I could just go outside or to the local playground and would likely find one of my friends there.
