Lotsa Helping Hands
By Lotsa Helping Hands, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
One place to coordinate help, communicate updates & receive emotional support. Schedule meal deliveries, rides to appointments, and visiting hours with the Calendar App. Notify all concerned family members, friends, and community members about the status of your loved one with a single message. Connect with your support network with posts to the Photo Gallery, Personal Blog, and Well Wishes.
Coordinate meaningful help (meals, rides, visits) when you most need it. Make it easier for people to help in even the smallest ways, and save time communicating unmet needs.
Share updates with your friends & family instead of sending multiple emails, phone calls or texts.
Allow friends & family to express love, emotional support, and uplifting messages in the Well Wishes section.
How to coordinate help while caring for a loved one:
1. Create a Lotsa Community.
2. Invite family, friends, neighbors & colleagues to help with your Community.
3. Add tasks to the Help Calendar, such as meal deliveries, so friends can volunteer.
4. Keep everyone updated through personal blogs, photos, and well wishes.
What's New in Version 2.0.8
Not useful for Coordinating
As some people who reviewed the last version pointed out, this app is for people volunteering to help, not for the person coordinating the help. Who do they think are the main people downloading this app? They should consider it's the coordinators who will be using it most while sitting in hospital rooms trying g to approve members, add activities, and manage caretaking on-the-go. It's a shame since the website is head and shoulders above others of its class. As it is, I can only use this app to see who signed up for a meal drop off on what day. Or post an announcement. I'll have to keep checking email to approve new members, then open a web browser on my phone, and re-sign in, yet again, to manage that. I "get" to use safari instead of this app if I want to edit an event or even create a new activity on the calendar. If the app were useful for coordinating I would be telling everyone about LotsaHelpingHands. Please, for the sake of your brand, try to fix these problems with the app!
So much potential
How can it be that email notifications are not sent to members, when a coordinator posts a need??? What good is it if you have to constantly check the app? And why do I have to go out of the app to post a need? These should be relatively easy fixes that would make this app INVALUABLE
Great idea--poor execution
The app doesn't sync to website. Great idea to have push notifications of help needed on phone or sync to calendar. But instead I have to keep clicking on community website to see messages and calendar. Having the app just takes up space on phone.
