Kin is an iPhone application that’s designed to keep busy families together within one private and secure social network. Kin has several important, user-friendly features like a tracking service, a family feed and a calendar.
•The tracking service allows users to check on their family members’ real-time location with a low margin of error. Users can view their family members’ check-ins and any comments, photos, or videos related to that check-in.
•The family feed is a newsfeed filled with photos, videos, messages, to-do-lists and even drawings that family members create and post.
•The calendar is unique because it is one mutual calendar shared and edited by all members of the family. When a new event has been added to the calendar, the other users within the network receive an automatic notification in the form of a banner on their iPhones. The calendar also reminds users of when all events twelve hours in advance.
