Apps

MyMob App

Whether you’re a step or blended family or just a busy family, MyMob encourages positive communication to help you build a stronger family by bringing everyone who are unable to be together physically in a virtual way.  MyMob helps to connect you when you are apart.  When you are not together you can know what is going on in real-time.  Post a picture on the virtual fridge, send a message, use the shared diary and get your children involved of all ages knowing the app is safe and secure. MyMob is also unique in that it has an inbuilt profanity filter – so your messages will always be suitable and appropriate!

Please Note: Important Information about the MyMob App Dec 2019 

We have had several people who have reported issues with the MyMob mobile app. Due to technical upgrades outside our control, the App in its current version is unable to accommodate new phones and operating system changes. We have advocated hard to funders to keep the MyMob app up and running for many months now. Unfortunately, we have not able to source the funds needed for updates that are desperately needed. We will continue advocate for this vital support, which we know supports so many parents and children. 

We are in contact with current App users, however if you require support we will respond as quickly as we can. Unfortunately, some new users will be unable to access the App. For those using MyMob as part of Parenting Orders and are having issues we can only suggest that you contact your local MP or the Attorney-General’s department; https://www.ag.gov.au/About/Pages/Contactus.aspx  and let them know how MyMob supports your circumstances and your safe communication and connection with your children.  Tell them it is an important resource that urgently requires their investment. If you or your organisation want to contribute to our fundraiser, please donate to stepfamilies Australia here https://ds.org.au/free-parenting-tips/free-apps/  

 

MyMob really helped my family when we separated – we were still in contact, the kids thought it was fun to post things on the fridge

The private message function really helps us.  I am really thankful for the profanity filter as my partner and I cannot talk to each other nicely and it forces us to not swear

I am a FIFO worker and this app really helps me feel like I am still part of the kids everyday life.  It can be lonely away – using this to stay connected is great – the kids like it as they are always busting to be on my wife’s phone!
