Parents, need an extra hand entertaining the kids? With your Yuggler app you can build a list of fun things to do at your destination that puts the kids’ interests first. 

>> What it does: Provides moms and dads with a list of kid-friendly activities and resources that can be fine-tuned to fit the ages and interests of their children. Tap your current location or pick a new one; choose a time frame and the type of recommendation you want from the available icons (animals, educational, nature, show, to name a few); adjust according to age, weather, season, cost, duration and more; then click “Search” to see your results. Sign in with Facebook, Twitter or your email address.

>> Cost: Free with in-app purchases

>> Available: Apple Store. Requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

>> What’s hot: It’s splendid to be able to search for kid-friendly activities and attractions that suit the children’s interests and ages. I was able to find gardens and parks, bowling alleys, gymnastics classes and animal attractions near our home that I hadn’t heard of. Look for the world symbol if you’d like to book your activity or need more information from the company’s website.

>> What’s not: You need to be patient with the app. When I clicked on the “Near Me” button, it sometimes went to the map of the last destination I was searching. Just click back to the main page and select “Current Location” or hit the “Clear Button” to reset. You might have different results with your phone; I was testing it on an iPhone 6 Plus.
