Technology has been known to create a distance among family members either because they are glued to the TV or computer screen or busy interacting with virtual friends across the globe. The quality of conversation between parents and children has taken a turn for the worse as face-to-face communication becomes a rarity rather than the norm. It is therefore encouraging to have software application that enhances the quality of communication amongst family members. Family Matters put things into perspective in the twenty-first century when values and priorities have often become distorted.


Family Matters is an iPhone and iPod Touch application that helps parents to communicate better with their kids through the family activities offered by this application. It offers a set of questions and activities designed to help parents to have deeper conversations with their kids when they take part in these activities. The activities are mostly venue-driven. In other words, the activities are geared toward users’ geographical location. It covers common places parents and kids may engage in conversations or need to pass the time such as restaurants, waiting rooms or on long road trips.

Let’s see the Family Matters iPhone application demonstration:
