This app has been reliable to me very much because I am able to put all important items in here
Good enough for free though not great
by Alwaystraveling55 on 2021/10/17 23:29
Nice having an app that you can use for family calendar. Cons: whose going feature is challenging trying to deselect people (it usually takes multiple taps to try to select the right members); no option to create recurring calendar appointment for just Monday thru Friday. Left with putting it 7 vs 5 days a week. For these reasons not purchasing the ad free version.
Updates take out best features
by Trailaway on 2021/10/17 23:13
It would get 5 stars until the shopping mode was dropped from the free version and moved to the 29.95 version.
Using for Years and Love!

My husband and I have been using this for years amd we love!
Greatest APP!!
by tschpet on 2021/10/16 18:05
I’ve used this app for a few years and it continues to be my number 1 app that I couldn’t live without. It keeps us organized and the interface is completely intuitive. It also continues to evolve with additional features. You will not regret purchasing this app!!
Amazing
by jva23 on 2021/10/15 13:17
I hesitated for years to do an online calendar! This is super easy! LOVE that it allows my family to add their appointments for us all to stay coordinated together!!! Also LOVE it has list options for those “to do” needs or a grocery list that everyone can add too for their needs. Has made my life so much easier!!! 😊
Clunky and Not Worth the Effort
by kdeichert on 2021/10/14 15:35
I have so many issues with the app and regret paying for the premium version. The calendar is tiny and hard to read, with weird formatting that makes it hard to understand. You can’t plan meals unless there is a recipe saved (meaning I can’t just add “baked potatoes” for dinner unless I go online, find a baked potato recipe, save it to the app, and then add it to the calendar.

Best calendar

Everything I have gives me motivated active and responsible and to be on time for things
A really convenient app
by Tomiris1 on 2021/10/13 18:06
I use it with my spouse, it syncs all of our plans, to-do lists,chores, reminders. You can customise the reminders and notifications based on who it regards while both will see those planned events. It’s one app that has three functions for us: calendar with appointments, reminders, etc.; grocery list; other random lists and our to-do lists. I like that I don’t have to have separate lists and it’s all in the free version! Thanks a lot guys.
Great! Wish we could use emojis
by Ksustainer on 2021/10/13 15:40
Our family uses this shared family calendar, & shopping list system every day. It’s super functional, useful, & keeps our family of five, plus nanny - and at one point plus exchange student, too - all on the same page as to who is going where, and who needs what from Target, the grocery store, Costco, the co-op, hardware store, etc. My only complaint is that you can’t use emojis for some reason. It’d be visually much better if the app would allow emojis to be saved in events and lists.
Perfect fit
by Grandma KLA on 2021/10/13 15:35
We have used this app for several years, for our multiple generation family. It’s been fantastic to keep us all running smoothly!
Needs some improvement
by Gque98 on 2021/10/12 18:22
Overall is nice but can be better. Shopping app should put things in alphabetical order automatically. Having to do that yourself is aggravating. And the list doesn’t auto fill like the shop shop app.
Feels abandoned
by GregB TV on 2021/10/10 22:48
There’s been absolutely zero updates to help this app get better. The font on the calendar is so small it’s nearly impossible to use. It makes me sign in almost every time I start the app. No fixes no updates I think it’s time to move on

Fantastic App

I have used this app for years and love that it has everything I need in one place.
Dumb update
by doyleclan on 2021/10/08 20:45
Used this app for years to organize family activities. For whatever reason, they decided that it should default to the Home Screen whenever I launch the app. So just to see/edit my schedule I have to go through extra steps now. Why are they making it more difficult to use and less user friendly?
Great app — please add widget
by duhhrenn on 2021/10/08 12:38
We use it quite a bit, app is great. But please add a widget.
Very good
by jj nia on 2021/10/07 20:51
I have been using this app for about a year now with my family’s busy schedule it has been wonderful my family in the past had some trouble with making sure everyone knows when stuff is happening but Cozi fixed all the problems I have read other reviews and saw that people where annoyed with adds I rarely see them I have no problems
To Good To Be True
by Myself80 on 2021/10/07 11:53
I’ve been on the app for 5 days and still cannot figure out how to sync calendars. The App does not do everything that’s advertised!
Resting on their laurels
by CBNBAC on 2021/10/07 11:44
Works for family syncing, but innovation doesn’t seem to be their thing. No widgets available and it general just feels stale.
Top app

Great app use it everyday
Enjoy

Great!
by Brickalicious on 2021/10/04 23:53
Easy to use, my husband and I love the shared grocery list, we use it all the time! In fact, I use it all the time!!
More color options in each view
by Einh14 on 2021/10/04 17:47
Happy but would prefer to have color coded text in the month view so you can look at an entire month and see grouped days of travel for different family members. Currently the colors only show up on daily or weekly views.
Advertising on Cozi Gold
by geolehman on 2021/10/04 16:13
I hate advertising. Despite having Cozi Gold, they now put advertising on my calendar. I will be looking for a new family organizer that is not so greedy.
All in one
by laloba74 on 2021/10/02 16:41
I love this app how I can have access to all the schedules and put my to do and grocery lists. So much easy for me not having to write my to do and grocery lists on paper then forget to bring the paper with me. With this app I am able to easily get to it using my phone.
Incredible!
by BamDaCruz on 2021/10/01 21:23
Can’t believe I didn’t know about this app until now … we managed everything through separate apps. With Cozi, everything is in one place. Love it!
Compatibility

This app needs to be available on the Apple Watch.
Love the app
by Ohiophotogrl on 2021/09/29 14:11
Started out with the free version but soon bought the full. Love that I can pull this up on my mac, the home PC, my phone and the rest of the family's phones. Works on ISO and Android! The list app is the best part for me. Everyone can add to the grocery list and I can keep a running list and mark it off one at a time at the store! Printing it out works well too!

Master list
by My 10 nicknames are Taken on 2021/09/27 03:23
I am ADHD, and have a lot to do. This helps me to keep running lists and serves as my memory for food, shopping, helping others etc. I have store specific lists for when I’m at Farm n Fleet or Ace or any where else. I have my to do lists. It is easy to use and I even got the “Gold” package- which is well worth it. It really helps me organize my life.
Ok
by Ashlo06 on 2021/09/26 16:55
I like the ability to share. But so not like the calendar style at all. First there’s no lines in between days, I just saw a budget together. Doesn’t look clear to the eye. Also the numbers at the bottom of the boxes just aren’t normal calendar so again it’s just not easy to read right away. It would be nice if different events on the same day highlighted different colors..
Pretty good
by Ming ninja on 2021/09/23 21:55
iPhones don’t allow to do a duplicate of an event as I could with android phone. Also cannot see individual appointments just by clicking on them on the month view
Not user friendly for elderly
by Jj021812 on 2021/09/23 14:24
We care for 2 elderly parents and have kids of our own, so in theory this is perfect to help keep track of everything. However the calendar print/view is so tiny it’s hard for for my dad to use it and leads to more frustration than anything.
Ads
by akabnvet on 2021/09/23 13:31
I’m getting ads and it’s pretty stupid. Might have to drop it and go with something else.
Awesome

Great app have been using for years and it is super helpful to keep me organized.
Should have better shortcuts/filters
by bananie05 on 2021/09/21 19:23
I was a fan of Wunderlist until it was acquired by Microsoft. It offered real time list sync with others so you could add or remove items instantly. Last minute need for ice cream? zing!, it’s on the list so your partner can see. I sought out another free family organization app. I’ve been using Cozi for 18+ months. I haven’t used the real time list feature but noted pros and cons elsewhere… Pros: +Availability of prepopulated lists for common activities like groceries, camping and travel +Ability to share lists and tasks with others and to assign +Ability to have both shopping and to do lists +Can find a recipe and add it to shopping list (con, it won’t be integrated with your list if you use categories) +Can text list (it won’t be a live check list unless the other person is signed up)But it also makes it handy if you just need to share with a friend or are in a hurry Cons: -No way to hide/unhide completed items (you don’t need to see everything on the recurring shopping list, just what you want to buy that day) -No smart organizing features, it’s all manual and tedious. Adding and sorting cannot be done in groups. And when adding items, I have to drag them under their proper category one by one. If I move a category down, I have to also move each subcategory down one by one. -No way to add items in specific order. Again, it just populates at the top and must be dragged. -The calendar sync feature requires an email and only then gives you instructions outside of the app. Waste of time and probably a marketing thing. -Free version has ads up top so lists are buried
Can’t get in

I set up a Mudd family group and now they can’t get join Cozi. Is there a way to resolve this?

Works great. Allows the family to share important dates via the app.
Calendar default to 1971
by tyk19 on 2021/09/20 01:52
I’ve been using this app for several years paid & then decided that the free version meets our needs. Lately when I’ve been adding to the calendar it defaults to 1971. It’s a pain and then I have to force it for this year. This problem of defaulting to 1971 started a few months ago
List problem
by Sally Grimes on 2021/09/17 23:25
The app keeps putting back items on my shopping list after I have already deleted the item. It’s very frustrating!

So far pretty good
by Cwlhalsey on 2021/09/14 15:04
I really like this app so far. I wish the monthly view was more app friendly to view, maybe one month fill the whole screen at a time.. and i was hoping itd be color coded also. If they upgaded the monthly view itd be a solid 5! Definitely family friendly
Widget

Would be better if could be a widget on Home Screen
Not ⏃ fake comment
by Cloud_Nightingale on 2021/09/09 21:51
My family got this app, sat us down and said, we’re using this from now on. ⟟ hated the idea my memory is terrible and other apps just remind you about stuff only once. But you can set up to 3 reminders and days or weeks before the event. It also has family food recipes, and you can put family birthdays, it tells you how old someone is and when their next birthday is. You can add events years ahead and it doesn’t have to alert everyone you can customize the event settings. I don’t regret joining Cozi.
Wish you could upload pictures
by honeschool mom on 2021/09/09 20:22
This App is only missing one thing!! The ability to upload pictures. We love it, but may have to leave it b/c pictures as it turns out are a big part of our communication.

by cb0902 on 2021/09/08 19:49
Losing all of my appointments. I have to leave it and it still has not shown by appointment
Works great most of the time
by Christytx52 on 2021/09/07 01:11
My whole family uses the app and our teenage son adds his groceries and Christmas wish list to it. I put his chores on it. We use the to-do lists extensively. The problem is that periodically (once a month) one of us will be adding and item either to a shopping list or to-do list, it looks like it added, then all of sudden we get a message with a list of items that cozi couldn’t add (even though it already did - temporarily at least). Not sure if this is because Cozi doesn’t allow you to enter items while you are offline and then sync up later or what the deal is. So you have to pay close attention to the message to know what to type in again. Super annoying. Also, frequently I’ll be typing and I’m part way through a word and the item just closes when I’m part way through. I’ll start typing “Milk” but only get the “M” and the “i” entered and the item closes. So I have “Mi” on my list. It does that a lot. You have to reopen the item and finish typing. Other than those two items, though, it works pretty well for our family. The updates are in near real time - I can see my husband check off items while he’s shopping. And the rest of the app is stable. It does what we need it to do for the most part.
Love Cozi for Family
by Road Warrior Salesman on 2021/09/06 11:05
So much better in the Apple family shared calendar. It keeps our family schedule in check
Very Limited & Clumsy
by Hercdon on 2021/09/05 18:28
I thought I could use this app to coordinate with my family and develop a coordinated shopping list. Well I discovered is this app is very clunky in terms of adding items and it makes it difficult to delete items. I am finding that the notes app is much better at doing what I needAnd I’ll work with my family via text to coordinate our needs.
Tried 5 years ago, still a pain!
by Chucklehead 64 on 2021/09/03 07:20
It refuses to accept my email address (the only one I have/use). I am getting to the point of despising digital technology. As has happened with a number of other apps, I will be getting rid of this app.
COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!
by Harobed2013 on 2021/09/03 02:54
I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR NONSENSE APPS LIKE THIS. I WASTED HOURS ON THIS DUMB APP. IT DOES NOT WORK AND THERE IS NO ONE TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE.

So close to perfect

Changes/edits difficult once entered into system
by jjjspapa on 2021/08/27 13:49
Difficult to make changes to Appointment once the entry has been saved
Deleted appointments still alert and changed to the UI are frustrating.
by Richard from sd ca on 2021/08/26 21:28
To be useful Cozi has to be easy and FAST to use and now I have to think about where things have been moved to and that slows me down and frustrates me. I would still recommend it for new users except I doubt if they have stopped "fixing" it. Adding features is fine but changing how to access current features is not. Finally I reported a problem that I deleted an appointment at night and still got an alert the next day. I found this inexcusable for a calendar app and was told “You may still receive reminders for deleted or edited appointment. That’s really bad.

What a fabulous app!
by Mom Ellen on 2021/08/18 23:17
I’ve asked my teenage daughter for months to look into a calendar app for the two of us. Between scheduling appointments (for her, me, the dog, the car, etc!) social activities, random babysitting jobs for her and deadlines for me, it’s been a major challenge to stay organized. I’ve always used a personal calendar/planner, but that isn’t my daughter’s style, and the big wall or kitchen counter family calendar attempt was a complete fail. Enter COZI!!!! My daughter suggested it three days ago, and we’re hooked!! So easy to enter our own commitments, designate which one (or both!) of us is involved, log in events that repeat going forward, etc. And the ability to keep a grocery/drugstore list without forgetting to write an item down on paper or pick it up from the store?!?! Huge bonus!! Edits are simple, and the beautiful layouts and pleasing color combinations are wonderful too! Have not tried any features beyond the calendar and lists, and haven’t tried to print out a copy, but so far, so GREAT! Wish we had discovered this app earlier.....would have made scheduling and communicating changes throughout high school less stressful for both of us. It’ll make these weeks before my daughter heads to college SO much easier to navigate! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Not working well in syncing my husband with my phone
by Grans on 2021/08/18 19:41
We have used Cozi for two years now. The first year, we paid $19.99. And then the next year I decided to get the Cozi Gold and kept it for the year, but we really didn’t use the Gold part since there is only the two of us and we only use it for the grocery list. I didn’t realize that if I didn’t renew it by our year end contract that I couldn’t renew for the original $19.99. So I had to do the Cozi Gold. For some reason my husband’s phone isn’t receiving the grocery list. This is an expensive grocery list if it can’t even sync between our two iPhones. I am not a happy camper. I tried to write support and evidently it is different than other apps that you write support in the app and within 24 hrs you hear back. I assume you have to go to the computer website—I tried but it was a pain to try to get help for a simple problem. Could someone help me?

Cozi
by dyyfhfkgoj on 2021/08/16 19:23
Cozi it’s awesome because it lets you organize oh do you need to do in the future and what you have done and also let you make shopping list and things like that
Amazing App!

We are a family of five with lots of activities going on daily and this keeps us all in sync with who is where and when. I recommend this app to all kinds of people!!
The best shopping app
by eyesofblue on 2021/08/15 17:10
i love this app. We use it to share a shopping list. We all can add the things we need and categorize our list. If you pay for premium you can check off items as you shop and they are cleared to the bottom of the list
Love it
by Vokurkar on 2021/08/15 05:07
I was searching for a solution. It is so nice for my husband and myself to ALWAYS share lists. Shopping lists are THE BEST. Since he does the shopping I do not have to make a list and then make sure he HAS the list when he goes shopping. He really likes the check off option. We were wishing for this app before I even CONSCIOUSLY knew it!😂
So far loving it....
by NicknamesAlreadyTaken on 2021/08/13 23:11
& already helpful to our family! A few recommendations/preferences: 1. Have a “projects” tab in the Lists section. This would be nice to have so it doesn’t clutter up the To Do lists. - I would love to see the ability to create a project with tasks needed for that project listed. - If those tasks could have a date/deadline set with reminders, that would be awesome. - Even better would be if you could assign those tasks to someone else’s To Do list so that they show up on the To Do list one at a time as they become applicable. (Rather than having them all on the To Do list at the same time.) 2. I would love the ability to have lists that only I can see. (ie. gift ideas, a To Do or Project list, etc.)
Cozi shot itself in the leg
by Ivan Bay Area on 2021/08/13 20:54
My wife and me installed this app simultaneously on our phones. We signed up and entered the same password. Now apparently we have two separate accounts and there is no way to connect them in one family. It says that email is already taken. OK, we probably need to delete one of the accounts, and re-invite this email from another account, right? But the deletion is hidden in some convoluted form and will take no less than 14 days! I hate when companies make the closing of accounts intentionally hard. In this case they just disservice themselves. I doubt we will remember about this app in 14 days. Congrats, Cozi, you successfully prevented a new family from using this app

Cozi Review
by db1056love on 2021/08/11 14:30
I love Cozi!! I have my birthdays appointments and grocery lists in my hand all the time. Note section allows me to make a vacation packing, party, or bbq list when I have a few extra seconds waiting. You can send the weeks calendar to the people who need…and send them reminders. I love Cozi!! I have had it for several years. I highly recommend Cozi!

I can’t live without you!
by zahava on 2021/08/10 21:43
Totally passionate about this app. I’m a mom, wife, entrepreneur, and homeachool mom So I manage a lot for my own career and for my family. Never quite understood why I hated other calendars available to me w purchase of my phone and laptop. (I normally adore the google and Apple products) I hated being the family secretary until I got a hold of COZI! Now I take joy in opening the app and everything is like graphics heaven! The colors and text are clear at first glance. And even my most mundane weekly events- like my monthly weigh in for health- are easily searchable. To make things even more amazing, I synced up cozi with google, so each morning, my google Mini announces my agenda to me as if I’m a superstar! Just love this app. Don’t think I can live without it! Thank you to our children’s therapist who recommended it to us.
$30 a year.

Works okay

The cozi app gold is great customer service and has good features but I needed a default for reminders and needed a little different easier to read layout. It worked for just my husband and I but adding in kids it didn’t work great for me but works for many people. You can’t get better customer service though.
Great calendar, needs to be iPhone friendly
by buzylife5! on 2021/08/04 23:52
We love this calendar and it keeps our family life communicating and flowing well. When switching from Android to Apple though, the features are not the same. There is no way to copy an event in the Apple version calendar, you have to do every single event from scratch for each day and each person. This is crazy for a calendar to not have a copy feature! I emailed Cozi app and response was they just don’t have that feature for iPhone. Come on! I am thinking of not renewing because it costs me a lot of time to put sports and school schedules in from scratch and not be able to copy an event. We have subscribed for over 5 years now and I tried it for year on iphone at it is a pain :(
Good app
by Yohe1009 on 2021/08/04 21:36
It’s a good program I just wish in the calendar the names would be colored instead of a dot. You have to scroll over the name to know who’s apt it is when in month view. It would help a lot if the texted would be the color of the family members. Other than that a great app
Excellent for managing families
by Geekguy83 on 2021/08/04 20:48
I’ve been using cozy for many years and always recommend my friends to use this app. I love everything about it. But the only thing I wish they were developed is a companion on the Apple Watch.
End date defaults to 1971
by csmithmrs on 2021/08/03 19:02
I used to love this app, but for some reason the end date of any “all day” appointment defaults to 1971 with no way to edit it. Since a 1971 end date can’t occur before a 2021 start date, I can’t creat a multi-day event. Very frustrating.
This should have MORE OPTIONS than it does
by CHRISTIANMIRACLE on 2021/08/03 00:52
It should send you text messages and others like it used to !! IT SHOULD CONNECT TO ALEXA AND IT DOESNT !! IT SHOULD HAVE WAY MORE FEATURES AND ITX PATHETIC !! I have HAD IT FOR YEARS !! The GOLD and I am going to cancel it
Good App
by Honey Badger Mom on 2021/08/01 00:46
I love this app that I can link directly to my husband’s calendar and he can see everything as I update it. However after buying the Gold I wish the monthly was color coded. If it’s already color coded by person in the weekly agenda then I think the actual words could easily be color coded on the monthly and then I would give it 5 stars! Otherwise been using about a week and love it.

Monthly calendar should be free
Best organizer app

Family and I have been using for almost two years now, we use the shared calendar for family events and birthdays. We love the list pat for grocery shopping.
Great way to keep family informed

Great App for keeping track of a very busy family
AWSOME!

This is a SUPER CALENDAR as it is very easy to use! Plus it is very easy to read!!😊
Priority?
by Gaurav Satwalkar on 2021/07/27 18:46
how do we set priority of an event? I didn’t see any provision for it. I will buy the subscription but other reviews make me cautious.
Not what I expected
by R0tt0napples on 2021/07/27 18:21
This calendar does it work well with other calendars. It doesn’t exchange with other calendars well it’s all read only. Doesn’t work with Alexa. You can’t do much as far as settings when your not on a desktop. The “month view” is not color coded. It’s the most basic view and is hard to read. This could be so great but I feel like it was a waste of money. There’s really NO REASON to buy the subscription. The free version is essentially the same since the month view is lacking in every way. That’s the only thing you get with upgrade. I will not buy again next year. Thanks for the reply. I’ve already been in contact with Cozi. They have given me the same links. The information is available it simply isn’t helpful. It does nothing with Alexa except lists which, for all the “works with Alexa” excitement I found, is really misleading. It should say “only works with lists in Alexa” I expect a more IFTTT approach with a family calendar. I expected to pay the premium and have lots of extras. Instead, I paid and found out it’s useless with Alexa and it’s exactly the same as I was for free. I’ll know better next year. It’s unfortunate because it COULD be a really valuable tool if it did more. And add some vegetarian and vegan recipes please. The one thing I can say, is you have great people working for you. They genuinely want to help. They are all very courteous and kind.
Great App
by Raiders2016 on 2021/07/27 03:00
My family and I use this app religiously ever since download keeps us info on what going on with each other
Love This App!
by bkdrmr on 2021/07/26 19:14
It has mad syncing calendars and schedules and lists so much easier for our entire family:) The only thing I’d want to add would be a widget for the Home Screen.
Great organizer

Helps with scheduling and reminders
Wish I could assign tasks to different people on the same to do list
by ShadyShyd on 2021/07/18 15:26
Still errors. As I’m typing this I can’t see the words because they have the font in white.
Lose productivity. Does not sync with iPhone or Watch Calendar.
by Bulwark of Democracy. on 2021/07/16 15:56
This is a nice app; however, printing calendars and iteneraries is problematic. Just try it. I loathe MS but their outlook is far better. Moreover, I can’t sync Calendar to my Apple, yahoo, gmail Calendars. Thus, thus adds time rather than saves times. Less productive.
Won’t show my events

Won’t update past 15 days out
Something went wrong
by bladers8 on 2021/07/15 04:41
Email verification failed and if someone uses Cozi with another group it is worthless. They should add multiple account feature and fix email verification. Deleted the app.
Mostly satisfied
by BusyMomOfFourPlusAHubby on 2019/03/10 14:57
The good: It successfully fulfills the purpose of having a ‘family management app’ and it’s nice that it has the ability to notify family members of events with multiple reminders. I LOVE the recipe tab and like that it is easy to transfer those ingredients to the shopping cart. I appreciate that my husband and I can keep track of what’s going on and what’s needed all in one place. The bad: not entirely super user friendly, in that it’s easy to do things but not as easy to undo them. Like when you transfer the ingredients to the shopping cart, you have to individually delete each item as needed rather than selecting multiple (at least on the mobile app, it sure how that part is on the desktop). You can’t just select an entire recipe and delete if you accidentally add it twice. Also, I putting a ton of appointments was way easier on a desktop (at initial startup) than on the phone, but adding individual events is fine. Lastly, I added my kids as family members only to keep my husband and I in the loop of who is where, and it’s frustrating to have to uncheck their names in the “notify” section because they don’t have their own emails so I was getting five “notifications” since it was mine plus 4 of them until I started removing them. It could be a little smoother in that aspect. Overall though, the price is good for what you get (I NEVER pay for apps, but was willing to for this one!!) it’s been a life saver but could use some improvements.
Cozy is AWESOME
by Fun rode on 2017/07/07 19:27
I downloaded the Cozy app for the summer so that I could keep my children's calendar organized for myself and our summer babysitter. I actually had the babysitter input all the different activities lessons and outings so that she would have firsthand knowledge and be more in tune with their schedule, which is crazy! It's been wonderful to be able to see what everyone has going on at a glance. It's also been nice for my husband who will ask me what's going on today and I can just refer him to the calendar. Our babysitter does some tutoring on the side so she was able to plug in her tutoring hours well in advance so that I could make sure we had a plan on the times we would be without her. The reminders are also very helpful. I told my children it was their responsibility to be up and ready for all activities so that the sitter could literally just pulled in the driveway and they would be ready and amazingly it has worked! I've even plugged in a few of my business meetings into the Cozi calendar as a second reminder for myself as I have so much happening between home and work. I haven't used a lot of the other functions yet but I'm excited to explore what else this app has to offer! Thanks for creating an app that keeps families communicating well and organized :-) Kristel Ersan Bettenforf Iowa🌽
Ok for basic stuff
by HorribleSpider on 2017/09/24 18:39
I found this app looking for something to help with meal planning and was glad to see it had calendar features too. Unfortunately the recipe suggestions and categories are useless if you're looking for vegetarian recipes -- and the idea of being able to search just for dairy free (or vegan) options is a joke. I tried to search for "vegetarian" and got zero results even though I'd already saved one recipe that claimed to be a veggie twist on a traditional meal... so maybe the recipes are there, they just don't make them easy to find. Lots of meat recipes though, if that's your thing. But here's the real problem: I like a lot of the features, but was disappointed that some things I'd like to be able to do require annual membership payments. I'd be willing to just pay a flat fee for the app, but considering how much they're asking for monthly or yearly memberships they'd probably ask a ridiculous amount for a one-time purchase to unlock all features. My main issue with paying monthly to unlock features is that there are only SOME that I want to use. It's expensive to pay the subscription anyway, but when you only want one or two features...? Forget it. Maybe they could make cheaper, flat-rate purchase packs that unlock only certain things? I dunno, it seems crazy expensive to me for what it is and what I'd use it for. I'd rather just stick with google calendar and a free app or two to fill in the blanks (like to do and shopping lists).
Still love it after 4+ years of use
by mommacrocks on 2019/12/29 14:53
We started using the Cozi when our two oldest kids were in high school. Two varsity athletes and athletic club participants, a child in elementary school, and two parents who travel for work made for a daunting job of keeping track of all the commitments. Our bigs are now in college, youngest is just about to enter middle school and we both still travel for work. This app is perfect for any family with a ton of balls to juggle. Everyone (including the pets) are part of our group. We can keep track of every aspect we need to know for scheduling appointments, work trips, meals...literally everything. Before my husband or I agree to a meeting out of town, we can make sure no conflicts exist with our youngest child (someone is always home for her.) The notifications help keep everyone up to date on the latest changes immediately. Meal planning is simple as we can decide what kinds of meals will work best on any given day ( both of us out all day, crockpot meal; after school lessons, something quick ; just two for dinner, portion adjustment) Plus, having the meal plan allows whoever is home first to get dinner started since the recipe is also available in the app. Running to the store? Grocery list of needed items is available to confirm we have everything we need. Anything we do is in the Cozi, it is a great tool. It keeps us on track and running smoothly.
Best calendar/organizing app I've found
by weareramsey on 2017/06/30 11:37
I love this app! I'm a busy mom of two pre-teens who's schedules get busier and busier, and a husband with a busy work calendar. I'm also an "old dog" who doesn't like to learn new tricks so transitioning was daunting for me. What I initially loved about Cozi was the ability to create tabs for each family member so each knows where they need to be and where others are. I also loved that I had an experience where I missed a "search" feature in the Calendar where you could search for the last time you went to the dermatologist, or changed the a/c filters, etc. Sent the feedback to Cozi and within a couple months saw that feature added in an update. Now my calendar works better than my previous calendar! Another review remarked she had trouble moving items in a list. If I understand her complaint accurately, you should be able to do that by "dragging and dropping" the item up or down. I organize my grocery list (after writing it freestyle) then organize in the order my grocery store stocks them. Same with errands. I write them freestyle, then sort into the order I want to run them. I'm always excited for updates to see what new features have been added. (Please note I am a Gold member and it's worth it to me for the upgrade!)
Good stuff!
by Sky_Blue_Eyes on 2017/10/08 06:35
My husband and I have been using this calendar and list app to help simplify plans and communication. It’s great! This is a success because we used to constantly ask the other “What’s our plan tomorrow?” and similar questions. Now that’s more rare (it was all day, every day). The grocery and to do lists are also helpful. I especially Love the combo of the calendar and the lists all in one app. I usually need one thing to create the other, so the duality of the app functions work for me. There’s also an option to choose recipes within the app and have the food items needed loaded into a shopping list. Excellent add on that’s free! —The recommendation I have to the developer is to include healthy recipes that focus on clean eating. —Another recommendation is to create the ability to hide appointments and lists. For example, I need to use my iPhone calendar app to keep track of things throughout my day. Maybe it’s remembering to eat a snack, take a vitamin, or make a dr appointment. Regardless, it’s for me and not my husband. If only the administrator on the account could have that option then that’s fine, but ideally all users might need the option to keep things private. That would eliminate my need the to log my personal items and tasks in two places. Every. Single. Day. :) And it would make this my favorite organizational type app to date.
What a fabulous app!
by Mom Ellen on 2021/08/18 23:17
I’ve asked my teenage daughter for months to look into a calendar app for the two of us. Between scheduling appointments (for her, me, the dog, the car, etc!) social activities, random babysitting jobs for her and deadlines for me, it’s been a major challenge to stay organized. I’ve always used a personal calendar/planner, but that isn’t my daughter’s style, and the big wall or kitchen counter family calendar attempt was a complete fail. Enter COZI!!!! My daughter suggested it three days ago, and we’re hooked!! So easy to enter our own commitments, designate which one (or both!) of us is involved, log in events that repeat going forward, etc. And the ability to keep a grocery/drugstore list without forgetting to write an item down on paper or pick it up from the store?!?! Huge bonus!! Edits are simple, and the beautiful layouts and pleasing color combinations are wonderful too! Have not tried any features beyond the calendar and lists, and haven’t tried to print out a copy, but so far, so GREAT! Wish we had discovered this app earlier.....would have made scheduling and communicating changes throughout high school less stressful for both of us. It’ll make these weeks before my daughter heads to college SO much easier to navigate! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Highly recommend for busy families!
by Wegots2kids on 2020/03/09 01:16
I highly recommend this app for anyone, but especially for busy families! We are a family if 4, which includes 2 adults, a teenager and a tween. All of which have super busy schedules. What we love the most is that we only get notified if something affecting the included family member gets scheduled. For instance if we plan a dinner with grandparents and all should be there, all will get notified or if said dinner gets canceled and deleted, all get notified. However, if my son (age 19) schedules a dentist app it’s just in the schedule, no notifications will be sent to the rest of us. With that said, we can all still access the calendar and see the schedules of each other, which makes planning group activities better. This app is fantastic! It has greatly reduced scheduling overlaps within our family. Even reducing difficulty within the family, like needing to schedule something but not being able to reach others to get it coordinated. The only thing that disappoints me with the app is that you have to pay for the subscription to be able to search for an appointment. I’d love to use that feature but just don’t feel like it’s worth the additional cost.
Works great most of the time
by Christytx52 on 2021/09/07 01:11
My whole family uses the app and our teenage son adds his groceries and Christmas wish list to it. I put his chores on it. We use the to-do lists extensively. The problem is that periodically (once a month) one of us will be adding and item either to a shopping list or to-do list, it looks like it added, then all of sudden we get a message with a list of items that cozi couldn’t add (even though it already did - temporarily at least). Not sure if this is because Cozi doesn’t allow you to enter items while you are offline and then sync up later or what the deal is. So you have to pay close attention to the message to know what to type in again. Super annoying. Also, frequently I’ll be typing and I’m part way through a word and the item just closes when I’m part way through. I’ll start typing “Milk” but only get the “M” and the “i” entered and the item closes. So I have “Mi” on my list. It does that a lot. You have to reopen the item and finish typing. Other than those two items, though, it works pretty well for our family. The updates are in near real time - I can see my husband check off items while he’s shopping. And the rest of the app is stable. It does what we need it to do for the most part.
Perfect app for adult ADHDers!!!
by PERFECTION FOR ADHD'ers on 2019/02/19 20:28
As an adult with ADHD, this has been a Godsend app! I am a Gold member/subscriber and the fee has been ABSOLUTELY beneficial and WAY WORTH THE INVESTMENT. This is my second year using/utilizing the Cozi Gold app. I plan to continue and refer to many family, friends and colleagues. This app is extremely user friendly and has truly been a blessed for me in keeping organized and orderly tasks; appointments, to do list and has overall simplified my “overwhelming ability to stay focused, organized and daily, weekly and monthly responsibilities and tasks! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP AND HAVE DONE SO TO MANY FRIENDS, FAMILY & COLLEAGUES! Thanks a million for helping me to stay focused, on time and improving my ability to overcome mishaps, missed appoints, detailed to do/ tasks lists that has been a tremendous app in keeping me on track with ability to complete what once caused unnecessary chaos, stress and anxiety in my daily routines. The gold subscription has been worth EVERY penny and more! Sincerely, Queen ADHD P.S. I highly recommend anyone (moms, busy professionals, etc.) to give this top rated app!
Great Family Calendar! The Lists Need Some Work...
by K8e L8y on 2018/12/22 16:16
We are a blended family of 6, with split custody we share with 3 other parents. Plus the kids are in school and are in activities. First we tried a simple calendar on our kitchen wall, which is great for our 5 year old and if you want a giant visual monthly overview. But...we are always on the move and schedules change fast. This app has been a lifesaver! We even have the option for our kids’ other parents to join, once our relationship is at that level. And I can access it at work on my computer where I can’t have my cell phone! The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because of the Lists. We need a satisfying “ding” after a job complete when we check the box. We make an audible noise ourselves and it’s just not the same. The ding makes the day! Also, it would be great if in list items, when you click one item, you could add subtasks and notes and things. That way a recipe could be listed, and then the ingredients could be within it. Or a task could have a person assigned and an explanation. We still use lists because we are set on using one app, but it’s not the best. Maybe you could partner with Wunderlist? They have it down! Thanks so much!

Your kids can DELETE EVERYTHING in your "family calendar"
by Wifid143 on 2017/07/26 21:29
What a nightmare! You carefully schedule appointments, doctors, outings. Then one day you look up and a LOT OF THINGS you KNOW you put on the calendar are GONE! Yes, COZI has NO admin authority, so go ahead and schedule your life away. Then have your 10 year old open his calendar, leave the phone open an inadvertantly (or not) DELETE calendared events! This has been a nightmare resulting in TWO important events being deleted, info lost, and NO WAY TO RECOVER> When it first happened I contacted them and their reply was "oh yeah, we dont have a solution for that, anyone using the app can freely or mistakenly delete events" Now, it has happened a second time on a very serious appointment scheduled months in advance, and I am beyond furious. This is a FAMILY calendar. When it is only as strong as a 10 year olds fat finger mistake, its USELESS. They need to add an admin 4 # password to allow an event to be deleted. Trust me folks, the advantages quickly become a NIGHTMARE when your kid decides to muck around in the app thats supposed to bring families together. I am on the hunt for something new. We cant afford another screwup in this app that has no parental controls over deletions! They know about it and havent fixed it.
Nice for families but...
by Annalynne on 2018/10/30 19:17
UPDATE: with all of the free apps available these days, this one is outrageously expensive annually for the gold membership benefits. I researched for months before getting this calendar. I’m a grandmother who babysits for multiple families. It’s very hard scheduling between us all over the phone and we needed a place where we could put our schedules that we could merge together and see who is available when. This one works very nicely even as the free version. But for our needs we upgraded to the paid version which I think is too expensive. The only problem I have with this app other than the high annual cost, is I find it very difficult to distinguish between the months , weeks and days. I think there needs to be a higher contrast visually as you scroll through. Sometimes I put my things in the wrong box because distinguishing between them is not that easy. The location of the date in the box is sometimes a little confusing. I just think there needs to be a better visual display separating the months, weeks and days. Especially for anybody with low vision but even for those with good vision. Otherwise it’s a nice app in the paid version offers many useful features.
Not as good as I thought it was
by Ipodallthetime on 2017/06/26 19:38
When I found this calendar I was so excited. We have a really busy family and lots of moving parts. I was so happy I wouldn't have to send emails and texts as reminders anymore or field the when and where questions. It was all at our fingertips. Until I had to get a new phone. My old phone died. I got a new one and as is the usual I needed to sign back into the app. Only I can't sign back in. At all. I thought I had forgotten my password, but nope, my email address isn't recognized. I emailed customer service where I get an auto generated response telling me it will be at least 3 days before they will get back to me. If I am paying for the app (which Im not) it will be sooner. So after waiting 3 days I receive an email suggesting that I may have typed in the wrong email address or spelled it incorrectly. This is as if I'm bot intelligent enough to think of that on my own that I had to wait three days for someone to point it out. So I responded to the email letting them know what I tried and guess what...they will get back to me in 3-5 days. I will no longer be using this app. If I have to start a new account I would rather go to an app that cares about their customers and that realizes how important a family calendar is. So incredibly disappointed in this app and their level of customer service.
Great for organization of the family
by Kshoe14 on 2019/01/23 17:08
My husband is always asking me, “do we have anything planned for next weekend!?” -after I have told him our plans almost daily for the last month- NOW i can say “check the cozi!!” My husband is a Samsung lover, and I’m an apple advocate, so this helps join our lives easily. I also like the joined lists. My husband has a cleaning and to do list, and so do I. I like this because we know exactly what needs to be done, and it holds us accountable. This app would get 10 stars if it had a pantry list, so when I’m at the store, I can also look to see what’s in my pantry and replenish if need be. I’ve tried other pantry apps, but the importance of having an app that shares this list would be HUGE. That way if my husband eats all the peanut butter, he could check it off, and that could get added to the shopping list automatically. Developers?!? I am currently using the free cozi, but if this was an option, and it ACTUALLY worked (a lot of the pantry apps Ive tried are crap) I would definitely pay!
It’s awesome except for a couple small things
by TheCrazyBernards on 2019/02/04 15:48
I really like this app for organizing and sharing a calendar between multiple people. We have 6 kids so they are everywhere, I especially like the feature where they can add something to the calendar and we all see it. My only complaint is the addresses; When adding an address to an event in the iphones basic calendar it pops up so you don’t have to type the whole thing, which this app doesn’t do - it’s lazy but I don’t want to type the whole thing in, lol. I also wish I could type in the location area the name and if it’s saved in my contacts once again....it pops up and fills out automatically. Also some events happen yearly that aren’t birthday, like my friends baby who died I like calling her every year to tell her I’m there for her for example. Events that happen weekly like various sports or church would be nice to have an icon like the birthday icon next to it. I’m trying the Gold for a year to see how I like it, but so far so good for the most part!! My notes would make things easier to handle or just thoughts.
Best calendar app EVER
by Kristyn0417 on 2019/04/05 14:15
My husband and I were looking for a good shared calendar to keep track of allllll the things. We found this and gave it a try. We upgraded to gold after we were using it for a bit and saw the value in the gold membership. The “lists” portion of the app is absolutely incredible. We plan our out meals for the week and I just found that they have some preselected recipes so I was scrolling those and decided to give one a try. You can add all of the ingredients to your grocery list with one click (and just as easily delete the ingredients you don’t need to pick up for it). I thought that was so cool. But then I found something even COOLER! I was searching recipes online and I went to share one to my email so I could print it and I found that I can share it to the cozi app and it will create the recipe there for you so all you have to do is click a button and all the ingredients will go to your list again. And that’s just ONE feature of this app. Definitely worth it. We love it.
Convenient
by Tamar69 on 2017/09/03 17:01
Pros: Calendar helps keep you & your kids on the same page with events, activities, appointments, due dates, etc. by facilitating ease of communication & a visual reminder. Shopping lists also allow all users to add & remove items, making shopping trips more productive. Cons: Annoying ads everywhere with basic (free) version; some features only available with Gold (paid) version. When I added "laundry detergent" to my shopping list, Cozi "suggested" its ad brand and embedded the ad into my list. Yuck. Also, Calendar view isn't visually appealing/easy to look at. SUGGESTIONS/REQUESTS: It would be SO much more convenient if the Grocery List had SECTIONS (e.g., Produce, Frozen, Deli, etc.) for items - it would really expedite the actual shopping process (no more backtracking 5 aisles to get that peanut butter you skipped!). It would also be cool if the Lists could identify or track those items you buy on almost every trip to the store, and suggest said items each time a new list is started.
OMG! Organizers heaven!
by Sophiasgrace on 2019/01/03 17:57
I saw an ad for this on Facebook and I thought it might help organize my families activities and such. OMG! I have used this every day since I downloaded it, it is so useful. It notifies every family member every time you add something to the agenda, everyone can see grocery lists, you can search for recipes or so easily just add all your favorite recipes from the web - just copy and paste the web address. It allows you to plan your meals out by simply clicking on a recipe and adding it to your calendar and then adding the recipes to your shopping list so you are sure to have everything. I simply search Pinterest for recipes I want to try and add them to the family recipe file. It has a button to keep your phone from turning off while you are in recipe mode. I mean, come on! This makes me look Martha effing stewert! And I’m sorry but all this organizational help and a subscription that amounts to about 2.50 a month? What could you possibly not love about this?
Worth it!
by ImagineHatch on 2017/11/27 11:26
Our family used the free version of Cozi for a few months before we upgraded. We don’t typically purchase apps and keep a pretty strict budget but Cozi has been worth every penny! With 5 kids and a business, we rely on this app to keep things in order. One of my favorite features is the shared lists. My kids can see their chore lists and my hubby can see our grocery list if he’s out running errands. I also love being able to add things to the calendar far in advance and using our calendar to let everyone know what’s for dinner and getting our meal plan together. We haven’t tried any of Cozi’s recipes but I like being able to add recipes from other sites. This app is everything we need and has been worth every single penny. The best part about the upgrade is that it’s a one-time payment and not a subscription. So I paid a few bucks once and now we have access to everything. We love love love this app! Highly recommended!!!!
Gold scam alert!!
by Jimkcec on 2021/05/03 13:51
I have asked for help now for over six months!! 2 years ago all was well in the family plan I thought it would be a neat gift for the family so I added the gold and my account was charged for several years. My family and myself never got access as it was only placed on my email and not the family!! Once I realized this I was eliminated from the family plan and now almost a year of email cannot get back to see the family plan. This with covid and 2 daughter graduating from high school has made COZI useless to me and not worth the money for gold or aggravation. I would highly not recommend this software as they scam you into going Gold then lock you out of the account and the only support is through email and very slow! I am not the only one that has experienced this as their frequently asked questions states if this occurs get in touch with customer service! I would highly advise seeking better business bureau help and or cancelling your card as they do not respond in a timely manner! The message I got was they see my plan and that I have paid for the service but they never attached it to the family plan and it has never worked!! Beware of the scam!!
Crashes, puts things on wrong day
by eaymsmg on 2020/07/07 14:34
I rely on my free version of Cozi a lot but when I try to update my calendar on my iPhone it has a years-long history of crashing and losing all my updates - I get a msg that somebody just made changes so my changes were lost or something like that - and every time I get this message I was the person who just made the changes (my husband never logs on). It also does not always place items on the date I selected when I opened the calendar post screen - I have to go back and search the calendar for the mistaken entry, or just place the item again in the right place & know there is a duplicate out there somewhere. When I have time to dedicate, I plan to transfer to a different app. I currently don’t have the extra funds to go back to the paid version, but when I paid for it, the same things were happening. I have reloaded and changed my password several times to no avail. Not reliable enough for 5 stars, but was a helpful app before all the crashing, etc.
Still dislike
by Mandapan on 2018/06/28 06:53
I tried this app several years ago in a coparenting situation and didn’t care for it then. We ended up using a different, much more expensive, app/site and were happy for several years. I pulled this app back in this month because my husband and I need one calendar for our family. The one he wanted to use required invitations to be sent, which weren’t accepted, and events didn’t get added. I prefer paper, which cannot be shared easily on the go with three kids. I was really really happy with it for about four days. I entered a TON of events and activities and travel information. I entered grocery lists and to-dos. I loved it for what I needed. Then I gave my husband the password to log in and join me. That’s pretty much when the honeymoon ended. Day 1- my to-dos and grocery lists were deleted. Okay. No problem. Rentered it all. Day 2- every. Single. Effing. Calendar entry was DELETED. don’t know what he did. But I can almost guarantee he doesn’t either. I do know that, literally, hours of my time were wasted. So I deleted the app. There’s no way to secure the entries and protect them from deletion. It’s too risky to depend on this calendar for actual families who need this information saved.
Divorce Arguments down 95%
by Sandman SF Bay on 2017/08/03 15:34
My ex-wife brought Cozi to my attention years ago (2009?). For and handful of years we consistently bickered and quarreled over one or the other not remembering or not thinking the other person remembered things she or I planned into the kids' schedules. With Cozi, 95% of our reasons to have weekly (or daily) flare ups were eliminated. Having one master calendar source (with reminders) to refer to just made daily life smoother for all of us (most especially our children who stopped seeing their parents bicker over little things so frequently in the past. As a guy, who can remember 3 things told to me in a rapid verbal laundry list of "To Dos" before I simply don't retain any additional info (but who is indeed a will do...follow-through and dependable person), Cozi has been invaluable. Thanks for being largely responsible for 8+ years of much smoother sailing through the daily realities of divorce with children Cozi!
Using for years and my rating keeps going down
by TheresaEstrada on 2021/02/15 16:31
I’ve been using Cozi, as a Gold subscriber for years. I started out rating it 5 stars and recommending it to all my friends and family. Now, I only use it because there aren’t many other great options and it’s a pain to switch to something else. Over the years it seems the development team has basically stopped investing in this app. The UI looks the same as it did when I originally installed it, which now seems dated. They used to add new features regularly; now, I see bugs causing the app to crash in basic scenarios for months before they get around to addressing them. I’ve finally moved over to a new recipe system and meal organizer, found a new way to manage my family’s calendar and an app to track family location. Cozi had so much potential to be the “Hub” for our family. Instead, the only thing I’m bothering to use this for now is the shared shopping list because my kids are trained to put what they need on it. Once I find a better solution for that, it will be bye-bye Cozi unless something revolutionary happens with this app.
Loving it so far - after a few changes would be irreplaceable!
by Italyrose on 2017/10/19 18:23
I love this app for calendar sharing! I can notify my husband of changes and I can enter data from the computer - much easier for me!! I love that I can send notifications to him and he uses our COZI calendar as his calendar too. We don't have to "push" appointments to and from each other. If I update it on COZI, he sees it. I also love that I can instantaneously update the grocery list and he sees it (in case I remember something while he is shopping). I only gave it 4 stars because I would love to be able to copy an appointment! If I have an event with a couple of possible dates now I have to enter all the data twice, or enter a hair appointment - same info as last time just a new date. I would also love to be able to sync with contacts so I don't have to look up an address for the location. Another great add would be syncing with my iPhone calendar in case I like to use both. Still LOVE the app though :).
User Friendly
by Dewdropmas on 2019/04/11 20:01
Our extended family has finally found a shared calendar we all can live with. It is easy to enter or edit an event & indicate who is participating. There is extra room on a pop-up screen when you want to provide extra detail about an event but because it pops up when you want it, it isn’t in the way from seeing the larger picture. It is easy to see at one glance what is happening no matter which device you are using at the time. When you are away from home it is easy to make an appointment and know that you are not going to conflict with something else. Customer service is timely, friendly & helpful even if you are using the free version. Using Cozi has eliminated scheduling problems within the family. It is meeting our needs very nicely. If you are looking for a way to coordinate family events, do give Cozi a try.
Great with an annoying flaw
by Frendlycat on 2019/11/05 23:46
My family has used this app for awhile and likes it overall. However I am sick of the fact the app is set up in a way where your lists pop up, then after a delay of a second or so what is on the page shifts so that an advertisement link is in the place where your list used to be. Too many times I hit an ad link instead of my list because of this last minute “page layout switch.” This does NOT happen on other apps and I have a very nice iPhone so this an app feature that I have had enough of. After being tricked into clicking an ad too many times today I am considering finding a better app. I have no doubt this is done deliberately to give the appearance of an inflated number of ad clicks but it is stupid and useless. If I do not want to see an ad and did not deliberately click it then it quickly gets closed out quickly anyway, but I am tired of dealing with thus irritation for the appearance of extra ad clicks. There is no excuse for this. Unfortunate.
2+
by Angme37 on 2020/07/15 21:54
Not bad but will raise it to 5 stars once I can bring all my calendars over to Cozi. I do like the layout and how everything is. I bought gold thinking that when I sync my google cal or Apple cal it would remind me of my events on my calendar but it does not. I’m not going into every single event I have on Cozi to change it to send me a Notification. It should have this option as a default but it does not. Yes I have it enabled in my settings to receive notifications . I have tested this in your app if you do not put to remind you which again it should be set to do this as default to remind you then it will not remind you at all and then I tested to remind me and it reminded me. No one wants to go into every single event and put send reminder. That’s why it should be set as default so it actually reminds you when you add a calendar to your app. Hopefully it’s something you add soon cause I know myself would love for every time you make an event or move calendars over it puts notifications as a default. Wish I knew it didn’t have this before buying it.
OK but...
by Hargrepa on 2020/02/07 12:49
I use an iPhone... I have it set to receive notifications, the only notifications I get or the 4 other people using is an email, no pop up notifications. Tried everything I can think of, so has everyone else using. Followed all steps to link Apple calendar to Cozi and visa versa. Many times. Zero success. My son plays baseball and the coach uses Team Snap for all practices, games etc, it took me less than a minute to link that to the Apple calendar. I look online and see reviews complaining of same issue from 2014, why 6 years later is it no better? Update I’ve had a prompt and comprehensive reply to my issues with Cozi. Their tech support, Marian, did a through and complete study of my and my family settings. Deleting and reloading app seemed to to the trick for my notifications issue, go figure. The linking of calendars seems to be an Apple issue. Thank you for taking the time to study my issues.....great tech support!
Great App Love but needs improvements
by Smart Professinal on 2017/10/23 04:11
I really love this app but needs improvements to be more user friendly. My first complaint is the grocery list has too many steps to erase the items & I cannot tell you how dumbfounded I am no one at Cozy can figure this out. Adding items to the calendar has to change because I keep putting an appointment type it close it then I cannot find it because to input the date it’s just terrible again way too many steps come on people!!this is meant to replace the paper agenda keep this in mind genius developers!! I have kids and let me tell this app fails me as a parent hire Dads and Moms as developers to figure out what I’m talking about because you clearly have no CLUE!! So I’ll keep the app for now until I find another one who knows what the heck I’m talking about. FYI I’m a professional who has a full time job
Month Calendar View
by Popples987 on 2019/04/07 11:41
I am currently on a trial for Gold and have been testing out other family organization apps. I love most of what Cozi has to offer and I love the simple and user friendly interface and text, however the month calendar view that I was so excited to get access too is disappointing to say the least. The layout is awful and actual distinct boxes and the date numbers on the upper left of each box would be less confusing, I would prefer color coded text and the ability to click on the day and have the events pull up underneath the calendar in a manner similar to the week view, with even the option to scroll through the subsequent days in this section as well. Also, being able to set an actual location that can be pulled up on maps would be amazing! I am still looking at other options, but I see so much potential for Cozi. I just can’t justify paying the premium for access to a calendar that is essentially unusable.
Don’t buy Gold; terrible design
by D.Alexarnett on 2020/01/20 16:07
I made the $30 mistake of purchasing Gold, primarily so that I could access the 1-month calendar view. I didn’t realize- because you cannot preview the full calendar view without paying $30- that Cozi has decided to format their calendar exactly opposite to any other calendar I have ever used. On each day’s rectangle, the day’s events are formatted to the very top, while the numerical date is formatted to the bottom. Maybe the malfunction is specific to my brain and not the app, but I was absolutely confused as to which week the calendar items were associated with. I contacted Cozi support and they let me know that while they were more than happy to TAKE my money, they were sorry to report that they have absolutely no mechanism to give it back. They pointed me to Apple Support, which summarily rejected my request for a refund without even allowing a human being to read what I had typed into their text box. So, buyer beware. You’ll have to shell out $30 to discover the mystery of whether or not Cozi’s absolutely unintuitive design and interface confuses you as much as it did me.
Still a good app; BUT…!
by abq jim on 2021/05/28 15:04
The most recent updates to Cozi have really screwed up the ability to delete list items! And badly!!! Now it seems the only way to delete something from a shopping list is to CHECK IT on the list, then go to a menu and select “Delete all checked”! Wonder what moron came up with this ridiculous idea! What if I actually want to retain a checked item (or several items that I purchase frequently) as reminders for my next trip? Hey Cozi guys/gals; please fix this ASAP. Update, 28-May-2021 Cozi folks contacted me over this comment and explained the cause was related to an Ad campaign that was going on at the time. They even gave me access to the paid version for the duration so this wouldn’t happen again. This was accompanied by a pledge to make certain the flaw in UI design would be addressed to prevent any further issues. Well done, Cozi! This seems to me as almost unprecedented support from a FREE App.
Best Family Scheduler!
by Wildcat0520 on 2021/01/14 16:35
We’ve used this app for many years now, and the whole family is trained to use it! Love the color-coding, super easy to put things in right away, it’s clean to look at, user-friendly and love all the extra features too - but the calendar is the best. I truly prefer this one to any of the others I’ve tried. A couple of suggestions that I think would improve this for me is for the color coding to go beyond just the dot...it would be even easier to tell them apart at a quick glance. So that for each person the entire entry would be in their color. Also, I would LOVE it if the Cozi app could link easily to other calendars. For example, if i could directly link it to my Apple calendar, it would also link to my watch. I wouldn’t have to enter things on both apps individually.
Good but could use some improvements
by Emmybug179 on 2020/07/21 19:00
The good: - it does what it says. It is a family organizer and allows me to see my husband’s work schedule so that we can coordinate childcare, etc. - it aids in communication. It solves that whole “I didn’t know you had drinks tonight!” The term “it’s in cozy” has replaced “it’s on the calendar.” -it is color coded and has the person’s name underneath to make things clear -the shared to-do list is a game changer - same for the grocery list. Needed improvements: - the default participation for every event is “All [members],” even when you’re in an individual’s calendar. I have to manually unselect All for every event, which is annoying when I’m putting in my work schedule. - it would be very helpful to set up recurring events without needing to add a patterned. Especially for shift workers. For example, i work 6am-6pm but not in a patterned schedule that I could put on repeat. It would be helpful to make a 6am-6pm event or tag that I can apply on the calendar instead of manually setting the time for each shift. It would also be helpful for childcare, for example make an event called “pickup” at 5pm that I can apply to any days I need my husband to do pickup. - I can’t figure out how to view just certain members’ schedules. If I just want to look at my husband’s and my schedules but not my sister’s childcare needs, I can’t.
TRIAL PERIOD OF COZI GOLD
by Dgy3gt on 2018/01/24 12:41
My husband and I are retired and I was looking for a simplistic way to share a calendar, grocery list and to do list. I very quickly decided the ads were going to be distracting and decided to use the 14-day free trial of Cozi Gold to determine if this is the app for us. I like the ease of making multiple shopping lists (grocery store, Sam's, Walmart, etc), the ease of making individual To Do lists and the ease of adding things to the lists. What I don't like is being unable to rearrange and organize the items on each list after they are entered. For example, I add things to the grocery list as I need them, but am unable to organize the list to make it easy to shop. Also, I have a lengthy To Do list and would like the option of rearranging to prioritize my chores. I haven't moved our calendar to the Cozi app yet, but read in another review you can't repeat entries without reentering all the information. Unless there are ways I've missed to do these things, I'll be leaving Cozi. DEVELOPER: Can you help?
Ok but could be better
by User7835 on 2018/01/06 17:43
I’ll start by saying my wife and I have used this app for about six years. We got it initially because it was about the only decent family calendar in the App Store when we started looking. We never upgraded to the full pay version because it’s ridiculously expensive for limited improvement. It’s nice to have a family planning app with shared calendar, shared lists, recipes, journal, etc, BUT each of these components are all mediocre. I have a “to do” app, a recipe app, that are much more functional (and still free). My wife and I also just started using the iOS calendar app with family sharing. It’s easy to set up shared calendars and it has better calendar views than Cozi. For the money Cozi makes from advertising and paid subscriptions they should have a top-of-the line product to offer, but they don’t. The developers have done little to improve the app it the time we’ve been using it either. After over five years of using Cozi, I’ll be moving on.
Great for busy families
by Silverramette on 2018/11/28 01:42
Negatives (why it lost a star): Unlike apple calendar, this app will not search locations for events so you must manually enter locations/addresses. Also this app’s charge for Gold is ridiculously high and not worth the price for a few extra features. The app does not coordinate with social media like Facebook events. Positives: Anyone can enter an appointment or event and all can see it. If you are invited to an event you receive a notification plus weekly reminders for events. I write my grocery list out on paper but the grocery list function is useful to me if I’m out and about and need to give myself a reminder to add something to my list. The app is easy to use—so much so that my retired parents use it (they watch my kids after school). I haven’t really used the recipe section but I like the idea of it. It might be worth it to have user submitted recipes.
Organization!!!
by Was a fan :( on 2019/02/17 17:24
Cozi has become our personal assistant. With family members spread over several states we manage to find weekend get always that work for the whole family. Being able to post to each others calendars is a benefit! For the immediate household we are always up to date on neighborhood gatherings, personal appointments, and our daughters college & dating schedule. Cozi recipes, and shopping make life easy on daily basis. Reminders, help us organize days in advance. Household maintenance schedules are easier to follow with Cozi. To do lists make floating chore days easy work through! The the same chores getting done weekly by three people on different days, so nothing’s overwhelming! To do list made for an easier move last year! Birthday reminders help us remember things when we are at a frantic pace.
So far so good
by Momof3Brooklyn on 2019/11/18 14:15
My husband and I have been using the free version of this app for a week trying to determine if we liked it enough to use instead of handwritten version of a family command center in our kitchen. Getting my husband to use a new app is typically difficult but he’s been on board pretty well so far. There are a few annoyances that keep this app from being really great though and I’m writing to see if the app makers can fix: 1. Being able to move to-do’s from one list to another. Currently you have to re-create the todo under a different list and delete the first. Not efficient when I’m trying to create efficiency. 2. Lists seem to always default upon opening to the Shopping list view instead of sticking to what you were last viewing, in my case typically the To Do lists.
Constant crashing!
by Need a reliable organizer on 2017/07/15 14:28
I have used and loved and highly recommended Cozi for the past 2 years to organize our large family. But in the last month it crashes within seconds of opening nearly every time I try to use it which is many times a day. Very frustrating as our entire lives are organized by this app. I'll have to switch since this is just not workable and doesn't seem to be changing. Update- I have removed and reinstalled Cozi no less than 25 times in the last month. I've even removed other apps that I thought might be interfering, deleted many things to increase available memory, performed soft resets on my phone multiple times and taken my phone into the store to see if they had any ideas. Cozi still crashes every time I open it. It seems to be to be related to how complicated you've made it now with all the little unnecessary pop up screens and extras that seem great but really aren't needed in a basic calendar app. I wish you could go back to the basics and then just leave it alone.
Good app but...
by JLaudert on 2020/09/24 15:49
I really wish there was a version on Apple Watch with a few simple things such as viewing to do lists, calendar items, and shopping lists. It’s great on mobile, having all our info in one place is very helpful and there’s more to it than just a simple calendar. My fiancé and I leave each other sweet family journal entries at random and I love “finding” them. So far it’s just the two of us using it, but I plan on getting my kids into it soon, now that they’re in junior high and have more to keep track of each day. Having a Watch app with reminders throughout the day would be amazing because I could make sure the kids put their due-dates for assignments in it and I could help them stay on task simply from my wrist...if I see something is due soon, I could just send them an iMessage while I’m at work without having to go get my phone.
Love it, but has minor glitches
by happyuser&76$ on 2019/03/14 19:27
Love the fact that I can synchronize my schedule with the rest of the family’s. I liked the way time was entered before. Now, it is difficult because when I enter the time, sometimes it gets changed by mistake if I touch the screen (it is very sensitive to touch and easily changed) and I end up with the wrong time messing up my schedule. I liked the drop down option better. That option was impossible to change by mistake. Also, sometimes I keep entering ‘pm’, but when I save, the time still displays ‘am’. No matter how many times I change it, it remains ‘am’. Very annoying. Usually, it changes to the right time the next time I open the app, but I never know if I saved the right time or not. Other than that, the app is great. I use it every day.
Calendar is great; Lists not as great
by Baayybee789 on 2017/06/28 23:16
I tried Cozi when it first came out and it never really worked for me. Recently I was talking with a friend and she raved about so I gave it another chance. Now I really like it, especially the calendar. It is really intuitive and easy to use. The lists, while intuitive, are not as helpful. I like the subtitles but once I've added an item I can't move it to a subcategory. My style is to brain dump my list items and organize later. I also like to organize my errands by priority and/or location. I use another app called Errands that I like better for the To Do list. I love the shopping list functionality in Cosi a lot though, especially the recipe integration but I still want to organize my lists by store/grocery aisle, etc. Cut and paste is too time consuming. I would prefer a grab and drop interface or something similar.
Love it! Needs a couple more features to be super useful to me...
by W8! on 2019/09/28 23:08
Works great as a family grocery list for sure. My kids have it on their phones and when they run out of something or want something new, they add it to the list and I see it when I’m at the store. It also works great as a repeatable packing list, particularly with the Heading feature to let me organize the list within the lists. For example, I create subheadings for toiletries, business travel, international travel, clothes, etc, and when I put it in my suitcase I mark it off the list. When everything is packed, I select the feature to Uncheck All and I have the list at the ready for my return trip as well as future trips. The two features that would make this app even more useful for me are: 1) the ability to change the list item to a different List or To Do, and 2) the ability to add a date to a list item to make it appear on the calendar. I can’t tell you how many times I had something on my Walmart shopping list but needed to put it on my BJs or grocery list, and there are things in my To Do world that need to be completed by specific dates but need to be on a master To Do list where I can see them all in case I can get to it earlier. With those two features, I’d give this app a 5 star rating. Thanks!
Awesome For Families!
by Smcramer on 2017/11/09 13:37
A must-have for families! This app helps us keep our family's schedule organized and everyone aware of what's happening. We have 5 people's schedules, plus the dog, my husband's work travel schedule, a home business ... lots going on. This app keeps us going! I LOVE the shared shopping list feature in Cozi Gold! All the users can add to multiple lists so that when one person is shopping, the list is just there! Birthday reminders are fantastic too! My only “wish list" items for this app are: (1) I wish it had a reminder setting for when certain bills are due; (2) I wish the items themselves could have an option for color coding based on person or category; (3) I wish the sub-categories were easier to work with. Those three features would complete it for me!
Month review
by Hilario23 on 2021/07/13 18:48
We did the paid version because me and the wife have two kids who are starting to break into extra curricular activities (2nd grade and Kind). We wanted a seemless shared calendar. While In function I can say this fills that void, I can’t quite say why it feels a little clunky in practical use. Perhaps I need to temper my expectations of why an organizer app can do? The shared grocery list is great, the input to add to the calendar and assign different family members is nice but there’s functional things that a family on the go will yearn for. Things like integrating photos into your notes or even calendar entry’s would be great (how many of you see an add on Facebook or website and screen shot it?). Also personally for me I just don’t find myself reverting back to apples standard calendar app because this isn’t offering that much more over the OEM app.

This app has been reliable to me very much because I am able to put all important items in here
Good enough for free though not great
by Alwaystraveling55 on 2021/10/17 23:29
Nice having an app that you can use for family calendar. Cons: whose going feature is challenging trying to deselect people (it usually takes multiple taps to try to select the right members); no option to create recurring calendar appointment for just Monday thru Friday. Left with putting it 7 vs 5 days a week. For these reasons not purchasing the ad free version.
Updates take out best features
by Trailaway on 2021/10/17 23:13
It would get 5 stars until the shopping mode was dropped from the free version and moved to the 29.95 version.
Using for Years and Love!

My husband and I have been using this for years amd we love!
Greatest APP!!
by tschpet on 2021/10/16 18:05
I’ve used this app for a few years and it continues to be my number 1 app that I couldn’t live without. It keeps us organized and the interface is completely intuitive. It also continues to evolve with additional features. You will not regret purchasing this app!!
Amazing
by jva23 on 2021/10/15 13:17
I hesitated for years to do an online calendar! This is super easy! LOVE that it allows my family to add their appointments for us all to stay coordinated together!!! Also LOVE it has list options for those “to do” needs or a grocery list that everyone can add too for their needs. Has made my life so much easier!!! 😊
Clunky and Not Worth the Effort
by kdeichert on 2021/10/14 15:35
I have so many issues with the app and regret paying for the premium version. The calendar is tiny and hard to read, with weird formatting that makes it hard to understand. You can’t plan meals unless there is a recipe saved (meaning I can’t just add “baked potatoes” for dinner unless I go online, find a baked potato recipe, save it to the app, and then add it to the calendar.

Best calendar

Everything I have gives me motivated active and responsible and to be on time for things
A really convenient app
by Tomiris1 on 2021/10/13 18:06
I use it with my spouse, it syncs all of our plans, to-do lists,chores, reminders. You can customise the reminders and notifications based on who it regards while both will see those planned events. It’s one app that has three functions for us: calendar with appointments, reminders, etc.; grocery list; other random lists and our to-do lists. I like that I don’t have to have separate lists and it’s all in the free version! Thanks a lot guys.
Great! Wish we could use emojis
by Ksustainer on 2021/10/13 15:40
Our family uses this shared family calendar, & shopping list system every day. It’s super functional, useful, & keeps our family of five, plus nanny - and at one point plus exchange student, too - all on the same page as to who is going where, and who needs what from Target, the grocery store, Costco, the co-op, hardware store, etc. My only complaint is that you can’t use emojis for some reason. It’d be visually much better if the app would allow emojis to be saved in events and lists.
Perfect fit
by Grandma KLA on 2021/10/13 15:35
We have used this app for several years, for our multiple generation family. It’s been fantastic to keep us all running smoothly!
Needs some improvement
by Gque98 on 2021/10/12 18:22
Overall is nice but can be better. Shopping app should put things in alphabetical order automatically. Having to do that yourself is aggravating. And the list doesn’t auto fill like the shop shop app.
Feels abandoned
by GregB TV on 2021/10/10 22:48
There’s been absolutely zero updates to help this app get better. The font on the calendar is so small it’s nearly impossible to use. It makes me sign in almost every time I start the app. No fixes no updates I think it’s time to move on

Fantastic App

I have used this app for years and love that it has everything I need in one place.
Dumb update
by doyleclan on 2021/10/08 20:45
Used this app for years to organize family activities. For whatever reason, they decided that it should default to the Home Screen whenever I launch the app. So just to see/edit my schedule I have to go through extra steps now. Why are they making it more difficult to use and less user friendly?
Great app — please add widget
by duhhrenn on 2021/10/08 12:38
We use it quite a bit, app is great. But please add a widget.
Very good
by jj nia on 2021/10/07 20:51
I have been using this app for about a year now with my family’s busy schedule it has been wonderful my family in the past had some trouble with making sure everyone knows when stuff is happening but Cozi fixed all the problems I have read other reviews and saw that people where annoyed with adds I rarely see them I have no problems
To Good To Be True
by Myself80 on 2021/10/07 11:53
I’ve been on the app for 5 days and still cannot figure out how to sync calendars. The App does not do everything that’s advertised!
Resting on their laurels
by CBNBAC on 2021/10/07 11:44
Works for family syncing, but innovation doesn’t seem to be their thing. No widgets available and it general just feels stale.
Top app

Great app use it everyday
Enjoy

Great!
by Brickalicious on 2021/10/04 23:53
Easy to use, my husband and I love the shared grocery list, we use it all the time! In fact, I use it all the time!!
More color options in each view
by Einh14 on 2021/10/04 17:47
Happy but would prefer to have color coded text in the month view so you can look at an entire month and see grouped days of travel for different family members. Currently the colors only show up on daily or weekly views.
Advertising on Cozi Gold
by geolehman on 2021/10/04 16:13
I hate advertising. Despite having Cozi Gold, they now put advertising on my calendar. I will be looking for a new family organizer that is not so greedy.
All in one
by laloba74 on 2021/10/02 16:41
I love this app how I can have access to all the schedules and put my to do and grocery lists. So much easy for me not having to write my to do and grocery lists on paper then forget to bring the paper with me. With this app I am able to easily get to it using my phone.
Incredible!
by BamDaCruz on 2021/10/01 21:23
Can’t believe I didn’t know about this app until now … we managed everything through separate apps. With Cozi, everything is in one place. Love it!
Compatibility
by Syndiloo on 2021/10/01 14:21
This app needs to be available on the Apple Watch.
Love the app
by Ohiophotogrl on 2021/09/29 14:11
Started out with the free version but soon bought the full. Love that I can pull this up on my mac, the home PC, my phone and the rest of the family's phones. Works on ISO and Android! The list app is the best part for me. Everyone can add to the grocery list and I can keep a running list and mark it off one at a time at the store! Printing it out works well too!

by Yum family on 2021/09/29 11:28
We use it for everyone in the family. Easy to use and with everyone having appointments, we don’t over book on any given day.
Love!

I’m able to share this app with my business partner and we both see our schedules
Master list
by My 10 nicknames are Taken on 2021/09/27 03:23
I am ADHD, and have a lot to do. This helps me to keep running lists and serves as my memory for food, shopping, helping others etc. I have store specific lists for when I’m at Farm n Fleet or Ace or any where else. I have my to do lists. It is easy to use and I even got the “Gold” package- which is well worth it. It really helps me organize my life.
Ok
by Ashlo06 on 2021/09/26 16:55
I like the ability to share. But so not like the calendar style at all. First there’s no lines in between days, I just saw a budget together. Doesn’t look clear to the eye. Also the numbers at the bottom of the boxes just aren’t normal calendar so again it’s just not easy to read right away. It would be nice if different events on the same day highlighted different colors..
Pretty good
by Ming ninja on 2021/09/23 21:55
iPhones don’t allow to do a duplicate of an event as I could with android phone. Also cannot see individual appointments just by clicking on them on the month view
Not user friendly for elderly
by Jj021812 on 2021/09/23 14:24
We care for 2 elderly parents and have kids of our own, so in theory this is perfect to help keep track of everything. However the calendar print/view is so tiny it’s hard for for my dad to use it and leads to more frustration than anything.
Ads
by akabnvet on 2021/09/23 13:31
I’m getting ads and it’s pretty stupid. Might have to drop it and go with something else.
Awesome
by James 2931 on 2021/09/22 11:09
Great app have been using for years and it is super helpful to keep me organized.
Should have better shortcuts/filters
by bananie05 on 2021/09/21 19:23
I was a fan of Wunderlist until it was acquired by Microsoft. It offered real time list sync with others so you could add or remove items instantly. Last minute need for ice cream? zing!, it’s on the list so your partner can see. I sought out another free family organization app. I’ve been using Cozi for 18+ months. I haven’t used the real time list feature but noted pros and cons elsewhere… Pros: +Availability of prepopulated lists for common activities like groceries, camping and travel +Ability to share lists and tasks with others and to assign +Ability to have both shopping and to do lists +Can find a recipe and add it to shopping list (con, it won’t be integrated with your list if you use categories) +Can text list (it won’t be a live check list unless the other person is signed up)But it also makes it handy if you just need to share with a friend or are in a hurry Cons: -No way to hide/unhide completed items (you don’t need to see everything on the recurring shopping list, just what you want to buy that day) -No smart organizing features, it’s all manual and tedious. Adding and sorting cannot be done in groups. And when adding items, I have to drag them under their proper category one by one. If I move a category down, I have to also move each subcategory down one by one. -No way to add items in specific order. Again, it just populates at the top and must be dragged. -The calendar sync feature requires an email and only then gives you instructions outside of the app. Waste of time and probably a marketing thing. -Free version has ads up top so lists are buried
Can’t get in
by Bettyck44 on 2021/09/21 11:47
I set up a Mudd family group and now they can’t get join Cozi. Is there a way to resolve this?

Works great. Allows the family to share important dates via the app.
Calendar default to 1971
by tyk19 on 2021/09/20 01:52
I’ve been using this app for several years paid & then decided that the free version meets our needs. Lately when I’ve been adding to the calendar it defaults to 1971. It’s a pain and then I have to force it for this year. This problem of defaulting to 1971 started a few months ago
List problem
by Sally Grimes on 2021/09/17 23:25
The app keeps putting back items on my shopping list after I have already deleted the item. It’s very frustrating!

Downloaded while taking a dump and was done set up before I even had to wipe. Brilliant.
So far pretty good
by Cwlhalsey on 2021/09/14 15:04
I really like this app so far. I wish the monthly view was more app friendly to view, maybe one month fill the whole screen at a time.. and i was hoping itd be color coded also. If they upgaded the monthly view itd be a solid 5! Definitely family friendly
Widget
by No more glitches-pleaseee on 2021/09/12 01:00
Would be better if could be a widget on Home Screen
Not ⏃ fake comment
by Cloud_Nightingale on 2021/09/09 21:51
My family got this app, sat us down and said, we’re using this from now on. ⟟ hated the idea my memory is terrible and other apps just remind you about stuff only once. But you can set up to 3 reminders and days or weeks before the event. It also has family food recipes, and you can put family birthdays, it tells you how old someone is and when their next birthday is. You can add events years ahead and it doesn’t have to alert everyone you can customize the event settings. I don’t regret joining Cozi.
Wish you could upload pictures
by honeschool mom on 2021/09/09 20:22
This App is only missing one thing!! The ability to upload pictures. We love it, but may have to leave it b/c pictures as it turns out are a big part of our communication.

by cb0902 on 2021/09/08 19:49
Losing all of my appointments. I have to leave it and it still has not shown by appointment
Works great most of the time
by Christytx52 on 2021/09/07 01:11
My whole family uses the app and our teenage son adds his groceries and Christmas wish list to it. I put his chores on it. We use the to-do lists extensively. The problem is that periodically (once a month) one of us will be adding and item either to a shopping list or to-do list, it looks like it added, then all of sudden we get a message with a list of items that cozi couldn’t add (even though it already did - temporarily at least). Not sure if this is because Cozi doesn’t allow you to enter items while you are offline and then sync up later or what the deal is. So you have to pay close attention to the message to know what to type in again. Super annoying. Also, frequently I’ll be typing and I’m part way through a word and the item just closes when I’m part way through. I’ll start typing “Milk” but only get the “M” and the “i” entered and the item closes. So I have “Mi” on my list. It does that a lot. You have to reopen the item and finish typing. Other than those two items, though, it works pretty well for our family. The updates are in near real time - I can see my husband check off items while he’s shopping. And the rest of the app is stable. It does what we need it to do for the most part.
Love Cozi for Family
by Road Warrior Salesman on 2021/09/06 11:05
So much better in the Apple family shared calendar. It keeps our family schedule in check
Very Limited & Clumsy
by Hercdon on 2021/09/05 18:28
I thought I could use this app to coordinate with my family and develop a coordinated shopping list. Well I discovered is this app is very clunky in terms of adding items and it makes it difficult to delete items. I am finding that the notes app is much better at doing what I needAnd I’ll work with my family via text to coordinate our needs.
Tried 5 years ago, still a pain!
by Chucklehead 64 on 2021/09/03 07:20
It refuses to accept my email address (the only one I have/use). I am getting to the point of despising digital technology. As has happened with a number of other apps, I will be getting rid of this app.
COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!
by Harobed2013 on 2021/09/03 02:54
I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR NONSENSE APPS LIKE THIS. I WASTED HOURS ON THIS DUMB APP. IT DOES NOT WORK AND THERE IS NO ONE TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE.

So close to perfect
by MegDilworth on 2021/08/30 14:47
This app is ALMOST everything I could dream of. The one thing it’s missing is an hourly calendar view. With that, I would pay for it over and over again.
This is awesome

Changes/edits difficult once entered into system
by jjjspapa on 2021/08/27 13:49
Difficult to make changes to Appointment once the entry has been saved
Deleted appointments still alert and changed to the UI are frustrating.
by Richard from sd ca on 2021/08/26 21:28
To be useful Cozi has to be easy and FAST to use and now I have to think about where things have been moved to and that slows me down and frustrates me. I would still recommend it for new users except I doubt if they have stopped "fixing" it. Adding features is fine but changing how to access current features is not. Finally I reported a problem that I deleted an appointment at night and still got an alert the next day. I found this inexcusable for a calendar app and was told “You may still receive reminders for deleted or edited appointment. That’s really bad.

What a fabulous app!
by Mom Ellen on 2021/08/18 23:17
I’ve asked my teenage daughter for months to look into a calendar app for the two of us. Between scheduling appointments (for her, me, the dog, the car, etc!) social activities, random babysitting jobs for her and deadlines for me, it’s been a major challenge to stay organized. I’ve always used a personal calendar/planner, but that isn’t my daughter’s style, and the big wall or kitchen counter family calendar attempt was a complete fail. Enter COZI!!!! My daughter suggested it three days ago, and we’re hooked!! So easy to enter our own commitments, designate which one (or both!) of us is involved, log in events that repeat going forward, etc. And the ability to keep a grocery/drugstore list without forgetting to write an item down on paper or pick it up from the store?!?! Huge bonus!! Edits are simple, and the beautiful layouts and pleasing color combinations are wonderful too! Have not tried any features beyond the calendar and lists, and haven’t tried to print out a copy, but so far, so GREAT! Wish we had discovered this app earlier.....would have made scheduling and communicating changes throughout high school less stressful for both of us. It’ll make these weeks before my daughter heads to college SO much easier to navigate! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Not working well in syncing my husband with my phone
by Grans on 2021/08/18 19:41
We have used Cozi for two years now. The first year, we paid $19.99. And then the next year I decided to get the Cozi Gold and kept it for the year, but we really didn’t use the Gold part since there is only the two of us and we only use it for the grocery list. I didn’t realize that if I didn’t renew it by our year end contract that I couldn’t renew for the original $19.99. So I had to do the Cozi Gold. For some reason my husband’s phone isn’t receiving the grocery list. This is an expensive grocery list if it can’t even sync between our two iPhones. I am not a happy camper. I tried to write support and evidently it is different than other apps that you write support in the app and within 24 hrs you hear back. I assume you have to go to the computer website—I tried but it was a pain to try to get help for a simple problem. Could someone help me?
Needs Widget

Cozi
by dyyfhfkgoj on 2021/08/16 19:23
Cozi it’s awesome because it lets you organize oh do you need to do in the future and what you have done and also let you make shopping list and things like that
Amazing App!
by Sauser76 on 2021/08/16 15:23
We are a family of five with lots of activities going on daily and this keeps us all in sync with who is where and when. I recommend this app to all kinds of people!!
The best shopping app
by eyesofblue on 2021/08/15 17:10
i love this app. We use it to share a shopping list. We all can add the things we need and categorize our list. If you pay for premium you can check off items as you shop and they are cleared to the bottom of the list
Love it
by Vokurkar on 2021/08/15 05:07
I was searching for a solution. It is so nice for my husband and myself to ALWAYS share lists. Shopping lists are THE BEST. Since he does the shopping I do not have to make a list and then make sure he HAS the list when he goes shopping. He really likes the check off option. We were wishing for this app before I even CONSCIOUSLY knew it!😂
So far loving it....
by NicknamesAlreadyTaken on 2021/08/13 23:11
& already helpful to our family! A few recommendations/preferences: 1. Have a “projects” tab in the Lists section. This would be nice to have so it doesn’t clutter up the To Do lists. - I would love to see the ability to create a project with tasks needed for that project listed. - If those tasks could have a date/deadline set with reminders, that would be awesome. - Even better would be if you could assign those tasks to someone else’s To Do list so that they show up on the To Do list one at a time as they become applicable. (Rather than having them all on the To Do list at the same time.) 2. I would love the ability to have lists that only I can see. (ie. gift ideas, a To Do or Project list, etc.)
Cozi shot itself in the leg
by Ivan Bay Area on 2021/08/13 20:54
My wife and me installed this app simultaneously on our phones. We signed up and entered the same password. Now apparently we have two separate accounts and there is no way to connect them in one family. It says that email is already taken. OK, we probably need to delete one of the accounts, and re-invite this email from another account, right? But the deletion is hidden in some convoluted form and will take no less than 14 days! I hate when companies make the closing of accounts intentionally hard. In this case they just disservice themselves. I doubt we will remember about this app in 14 days. Congrats, Cozi, you successfully prevented a new family from using this app

Cozi Review
by db1056love on 2021/08/11 14:30
I love Cozi!! I have my birthdays appointments and grocery lists in my hand all the time. Note section allows me to make a vacation packing, party, or bbq list when I have a few extra seconds waiting. You can send the weeks calendar to the people who need…and send them reminders. I love Cozi!! I have had it for several years. I highly recommend Cozi!

I can’t live without you!
by zahava on 2021/08/10 21:43
Totally passionate about this app. I’m a mom, wife, entrepreneur, and homeachool mom So I manage a lot for my own career and for my family. Never quite understood why I hated other calendars available to me w purchase of my phone and laptop. (I normally adore the google and Apple products) I hated being the family secretary until I got a hold of COZI! Now I take joy in opening the app and everything is like graphics heaven! The colors and text are clear at first glance. And even my most mundane weekly events- like my monthly weigh in for health- are easily searchable. To make things even more amazing, I synced up cozi with google, so each morning, my google Mini announces my agenda to me as if I’m a superstar! Just love this app. Don’t think I can live without it! Thank you to our children’s therapist who recommended it to us.
$30 a year.

The cozi app gold is great customer service and has good features but I needed a default for reminders and needed a little different easier to read layout. It worked for just my husband and I but adding in kids it didn’t work great for me but works for many people. You can’t get better customer service though.
Great calendar, needs to be iPhone friendly
by buzylife5! on 2021/08/04 23:52
We love this calendar and it keeps our family life communicating and flowing well. When switching from Android to Apple though, the features are not the same. There is no way to copy an event in the Apple version calendar, you have to do every single event from scratch for each day and each person. This is crazy for a calendar to not have a copy feature! I emailed Cozi app and response was they just don’t have that feature for iPhone. Come on! I am thinking of not renewing because it costs me a lot of time to put sports and school schedules in from scratch and not be able to copy an event. We have subscribed for over 5 years now and I tried it for year on iphone at it is a pain :(
Good app
by Yohe1009 on 2021/08/04 21:36
It’s a good program I just wish in the calendar the names would be colored instead of a dot. You have to scroll over the name to know who’s apt it is when in month view. It would help a lot if the texted would be the color of the family members. Other than that a great app
Excellent for managing families
by Geekguy83 on 2021/08/04 20:48
I’ve been using cozy for many years and always recommend my friends to use this app. I love everything about it. But the only thing I wish they were developed is a companion on the Apple Watch.
End date defaults to 1971
by csmithmrs on 2021/08/03 19:02
I used to love this app, but for some reason the end date of any “all day” appointment defaults to 1971 with no way to edit it. Since a 1971 end date can’t occur before a 2021 start date, I can’t creat a multi-day event. Very frustrating.
This should have MORE OPTIONS than it does
by CHRISTIANMIRACLE on 2021/08/03 00:52
It should send you text messages and others like it used to !! IT SHOULD CONNECT TO ALEXA AND IT DOESNT !! IT SHOULD HAVE WAY MORE FEATURES AND ITX PATHETIC !! I have HAD IT FOR YEARS !! The GOLD and I am going to cancel it
Good App
by Honey Badger Mom on 2021/08/01 00:46
I love this app that I can link directly to my husband’s calendar and he can see everything as I update it. However after buying the Gold I wish the monthly was color coded. If it’s already color coded by person in the weekly agenda then I think the actual words could easily be color coded on the monthly and then I would give it 5 stars! Otherwise been using about a week and love it.

Monthly calendar should be free
Best organizer app

Family and I have been using for almost two years now, we use the shared calendar for family events and birthdays. We love the list pat for grocery shopping.
Great way to keep family informed
by Dr A Cat Doc on 2021/07/28 23:16
Great App for keeping track of a very busy family
AWSOME!
by Dast🐶 on 2021/07/28 15:22
This is a SUPER CALENDAR as it is very easy to use! Plus it is very easy to read!!😊
Priority?
by Gaurav Satwalkar on 2021/07/27 18:46
how do we set priority of an event? I didn’t see any provision for it. I will buy the subscription but other reviews make me cautious.
Not what I expected
by R0tt0napples on 2021/07/27 18:21
This calendar does it work well with other calendars. It doesn’t exchange with other calendars well it’s all read only. Doesn’t work with Alexa. You can’t do much as far as settings when your not on a desktop. The “month view” is not color coded. It’s the most basic view and is hard to read. This could be so great but I feel like it was a waste of money. There’s really NO REASON to buy the subscription. The free version is essentially the same since the month view is lacking in every way. That’s the only thing you get with upgrade. I will not buy again next year. Thanks for the reply. I’ve already been in contact with Cozi. They have given me the same links. The information is available it simply isn’t helpful. It does nothing with Alexa except lists which, for all the “works with Alexa” excitement I found, is really misleading. It should say “only works with lists in Alexa” I expect a more IFTTT approach with a family calendar. I expected to pay the premium and have lots of extras. Instead, I paid and found out it’s useless with Alexa and it’s exactly the same as I was for free. I’ll know better next year. It’s unfortunate because it COULD be a really valuable tool if it did more. And add some vegetarian and vegan recipes please. The one thing I can say, is you have great people working for you. They genuinely want to help. They are all very courteous and kind.
Great App
by Raiders2016 on 2021/07/27 03:00
My family and I use this app religiously ever since download keeps us info on what going on with each other
Love This App!
by bkdrmr on 2021/07/26 19:14
It has mad syncing calendars and schedules and lists so much easier for our entire family:) The only thing I’d want to add would be a widget for the Home Screen.
Great organizer

Helps with scheduling and reminders
Wish I could assign tasks to different people on the same to do list
by ShadyShyd on 2021/07/18 15:26
Still errors. As I’m typing this I can’t see the words because they have the font in white.
Lose productivity. Does not sync with iPhone or Watch Calendar.
by Bulwark of Democracy. on 2021/07/16 15:56
This is a nice app; however, printing calendars and iteneraries is problematic. Just try it. I loathe MS but their outlook is far better. Moreover, I can’t sync Calendar to my Apple, yahoo, gmail Calendars. Thus, thus adds time rather than saves times. Less productive.
Won’t show my events

Won’t update past 15 days out
Something went wrong
by bladers8 on 2021/07/15 04:41
Email verification failed and if someone uses Cozi with another group it is worthless. They should add multiple account feature and fix email verification. Deleted the app.
Mostly satisfied
by BusyMomOfFourPlusAHubby on 2019/03/10 14:57
The good: It successfully fulfills the purpose of having a ‘family management app’ and it’s nice that it has the ability to notify family members of events with multiple reminders. I LOVE the recipe tab and like that it is easy to transfer those ingredients to the shopping cart. I appreciate that my husband and I can keep track of what’s going on and what’s needed all in one place. The bad: not entirely super user friendly, in that it’s easy to do things but not as easy to undo them. Like when you transfer the ingredients to the shopping cart, you have to individually delete each item as needed rather than selecting multiple (at least on the mobile app, it sure how that part is on the desktop). You can’t just select an entire recipe and delete if you accidentally add it twice. Also, I putting a ton of appointments was way easier on a desktop (at initial startup) than on the phone, but adding individual events is fine. Lastly, I added my kids as family members only to keep my husband and I in the loop of who is where, and it’s frustrating to have to uncheck their names in the “notify” section because they don’t have their own emails so I was getting five “notifications” since it was mine plus 4 of them until I started removing them. It could be a little smoother in that aspect. Overall though, the price is good for what you get (I NEVER pay for apps, but was willing to for this one!!) it’s been a life saver but could use some improvements.
Cozy is AWESOME
by Fun rode on 2017/07/07 19:27
I downloaded the Cozy app for the summer so that I could keep my children's calendar organized for myself and our summer babysitter. I actually had the babysitter input all the different activities lessons and outings so that she would have firsthand knowledge and be more in tune with their schedule, which is crazy! It's been wonderful to be able to see what everyone has going on at a glance. It's also been nice for my husband who will ask me what's going on today and I can just refer him to the calendar. Our babysitter does some tutoring on the side so she was able to plug in her tutoring hours well in advance so that I could make sure we had a plan on the times we would be without her. The reminders are also very helpful. I told my children it was their responsibility to be up and ready for all activities so that the sitter could literally just pulled in the driveway and they would be ready and amazingly it has worked! I've even plugged in a few of my business meetings into the Cozi calendar as a second reminder for myself as I have so much happening between home and work. I haven't used a lot of the other functions yet but I'm excited to explore what else this app has to offer! Thanks for creating an app that keeps families communicating well and organized :-) Kristel Ersan Bettenforf Iowa🌽
Ok for basic stuff
by HorribleSpider on 2017/09/24 18:39
I found this app looking for something to help with meal planning and was glad to see it had calendar features too. Unfortunately the recipe suggestions and categories are useless if you're looking for vegetarian recipes -- and the idea of being able to search just for dairy free (or vegan) options is a joke. I tried to search for "vegetarian" and got zero results even though I'd already saved one recipe that claimed to be a veggie twist on a traditional meal... so maybe the recipes are there, they just don't make them easy to find. Lots of meat recipes though, if that's your thing. But here's the real problem: I like a lot of the features, but was disappointed that some things I'd like to be able to do require annual membership payments. I'd be willing to just pay a flat fee for the app, but considering how much they're asking for monthly or yearly memberships they'd probably ask a ridiculous amount for a one-time purchase to unlock all features. My main issue with paying monthly to unlock features is that there are only SOME that I want to use. It's expensive to pay the subscription anyway, but when you only want one or two features...? Forget it. Maybe they could make cheaper, flat-rate purchase packs that unlock only certain things? I dunno, it seems crazy expensive to me for what it is and what I'd use it for. I'd rather just stick with google calendar and a free app or two to fill in the blanks (like to do and shopping lists).
Still love it after 4+ years of use
by mommacrocks on 2019/12/29 14:53
We started using the Cozi when our two oldest kids were in high school. Two varsity athletes and athletic club participants, a child in elementary school, and two parents who travel for work made for a daunting job of keeping track of all the commitments. Our bigs are now in college, youngest is just about to enter middle school and we both still travel for work. This app is perfect for any family with a ton of balls to juggle. Everyone (including the pets) are part of our group. We can keep track of every aspect we need to know for scheduling appointments, work trips, meals...literally everything. Before my husband or I agree to a meeting out of town, we can make sure no conflicts exist with our youngest child (someone is always home for her.) The notifications help keep everyone up to date on the latest changes immediately. Meal planning is simple as we can decide what kinds of meals will work best on any given day ( both of us out all day, crockpot meal; after school lessons, something quick ; just two for dinner, portion adjustment) Plus, having the meal plan allows whoever is home first to get dinner started since the recipe is also available in the app. Running to the store? Grocery list of needed items is available to confirm we have everything we need. Anything we do is in the Cozi, it is a great tool. It keeps us on track and running smoothly.
Best calendar/organizing app I've found
by weareramsey on 2017/06/30 11:37
I love this app! I'm a busy mom of two pre-teens who's schedules get busier and busier, and a husband with a busy work calendar. I'm also an "old dog" who doesn't like to learn new tricks so transitioning was daunting for me. What I initially loved about Cozi was the ability to create tabs for each family member so each knows where they need to be and where others are. I also loved that I had an experience where I missed a "search" feature in the Calendar where you could search for the last time you went to the dermatologist, or changed the a/c filters, etc. Sent the feedback to Cozi and within a couple months saw that feature added in an update. Now my calendar works better than my previous calendar! Another review remarked she had trouble moving items in a list. If I understand her complaint accurately, you should be able to do that by "dragging and dropping" the item up or down. I organize my grocery list (after writing it freestyle) then organize in the order my grocery store stocks them. Same with errands. I write them freestyle, then sort into the order I want to run them. I'm always excited for updates to see what new features have been added. (Please note I am a Gold member and it's worth it to me for the upgrade!)
Good stuff!
by Sky_Blue_Eyes on 2017/10/08 06:35
My husband and I have been using this calendar and list app to help simplify plans and communication. It’s great! This is a success because we used to constantly ask the other “What’s our plan tomorrow?” and similar questions. Now that’s more rare (it was all day, every day). The grocery and to do lists are also helpful. I especially Love the combo of the calendar and the lists all in one app. I usually need one thing to create the other, so the duality of the app functions work for me. There’s also an option to choose recipes within the app and have the food items needed loaded into a shopping list. Excellent add on that’s free! —The recommendation I have to the developer is to include healthy recipes that focus on clean eating. —Another recommendation is to create the ability to hide appointments and lists. For example, I need to use my iPhone calendar app to keep track of things throughout my day. Maybe it’s remembering to eat a snack, take a vitamin, or make a dr appointment. Regardless, it’s for me and not my husband. If only the administrator on the account could have that option then that’s fine, but ideally all users might need the option to keep things private. That would eliminate my need the to log my personal items and tasks in two places. Every. Single. Day. :) And it would make this my favorite organizational type app to date.
What a fabulous app!
by Mom Ellen on 2021/08/18 23:17
I’ve asked my teenage daughter for months to look into a calendar app for the two of us. Between scheduling appointments (for her, me, the dog, the car, etc!) social activities, random babysitting jobs for her and deadlines for me, it’s been a major challenge to stay organized. I’ve always used a personal calendar/planner, but that isn’t my daughter’s style, and the big wall or kitchen counter family calendar attempt was a complete fail. Enter COZI!!!! My daughter suggested it three days ago, and we’re hooked!! So easy to enter our own commitments, designate which one (or both!) of us is involved, log in events that repeat going forward, etc. And the ability to keep a grocery/drugstore list without forgetting to write an item down on paper or pick it up from the store?!?! Huge bonus!! Edits are simple, and the beautiful layouts and pleasing color combinations are wonderful too! Have not tried any features beyond the calendar and lists, and haven’t tried to print out a copy, but so far, so GREAT! Wish we had discovered this app earlier.....would have made scheduling and communicating changes throughout high school less stressful for both of us. It’ll make these weeks before my daughter heads to college SO much easier to navigate! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Highly recommend for busy families!
by Wegots2kids on 2020/03/09 01:16
I highly recommend this app for anyone, but especially for busy families! We are a family if 4, which includes 2 adults, a teenager and a tween. All of which have super busy schedules. What we love the most is that we only get notified if something affecting the included family member gets scheduled. For instance if we plan a dinner with grandparents and all should be there, all will get notified or if said dinner gets canceled and deleted, all get notified. However, if my son (age 19) schedules a dentist app it’s just in the schedule, no notifications will be sent to the rest of us. With that said, we can all still access the calendar and see the schedules of each other, which makes planning group activities better. This app is fantastic! It has greatly reduced scheduling overlaps within our family. Even reducing difficulty within the family, like needing to schedule something but not being able to reach others to get it coordinated. The only thing that disappoints me with the app is that you have to pay for the subscription to be able to search for an appointment. I’d love to use that feature but just don’t feel like it’s worth the additional cost.
Works great most of the time
by Christytx52 on 2021/09/07 01:11
My whole family uses the app and our teenage son adds his groceries and Christmas wish list to it. I put his chores on it. We use the to-do lists extensively. The problem is that periodically (once a month) one of us will be adding and item either to a shopping list or to-do list, it looks like it added, then all of sudden we get a message with a list of items that cozi couldn’t add (even though it already did - temporarily at least). Not sure if this is because Cozi doesn’t allow you to enter items while you are offline and then sync up later or what the deal is. So you have to pay close attention to the message to know what to type in again. Super annoying. Also, frequently I’ll be typing and I’m part way through a word and the item just closes when I’m part way through. I’ll start typing “Milk” but only get the “M” and the “i” entered and the item closes. So I have “Mi” on my list. It does that a lot. You have to reopen the item and finish typing. Other than those two items, though, it works pretty well for our family. The updates are in near real time - I can see my husband check off items while he’s shopping. And the rest of the app is stable. It does what we need it to do for the most part.
Perfect app for adult ADHDers!!!
by PERFECTION FOR ADHD'ers on 2019/02/19 20:28
As an adult with ADHD, this has been a Godsend app! I am a Gold member/subscriber and the fee has been ABSOLUTELY beneficial and WAY WORTH THE INVESTMENT. This is my second year using/utilizing the Cozi Gold app. I plan to continue and refer to many family, friends and colleagues. This app is extremely user friendly and has truly been a blessed for me in keeping organized and orderly tasks; appointments, to do list and has overall simplified my “overwhelming ability to stay focused, organized and daily, weekly and monthly responsibilities and tasks! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP AND HAVE DONE SO TO MANY FRIENDS, FAMILY & COLLEAGUES! Thanks a million for helping me to stay focused, on time and improving my ability to overcome mishaps, missed appoints, detailed to do/ tasks lists that has been a tremendous app in keeping me on track with ability to complete what once caused unnecessary chaos, stress and anxiety in my daily routines. The gold subscription has been worth EVERY penny and more! Sincerely, Queen ADHD P.S. I highly recommend anyone (moms, busy professionals, etc.) to give this top rated app!
Great Family Calendar! The Lists Need Some Work...
by K8e L8y on 2018/12/22 16:16
We are a blended family of 6, with split custody we share with 3 other parents. Plus the kids are in school and are in activities. First we tried a simple calendar on our kitchen wall, which is great for our 5 year old and if you want a giant visual monthly overview. But...we are always on the move and schedules change fast. This app has been a lifesaver! We even have the option for our kids’ other parents to join, once our relationship is at that level. And I can access it at work on my computer where I can’t have my cell phone! The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because of the Lists. We need a satisfying “ding” after a job complete when we check the box. We make an audible noise ourselves and it’s just not the same. The ding makes the day! Also, it would be great if in list items, when you click one item, you could add subtasks and notes and things. That way a recipe could be listed, and then the ingredients could be within it. Or a task could have a person assigned and an explanation. We still use lists because we are set on using one app, but it’s not the best. Maybe you could partner with Wunderlist? They have it down! Thanks so much!

Your kids can DELETE EVERYTHING in your "family calendar"
by Wifid143 on 2017/07/26 21:29
What a nightmare! You carefully schedule appointments, doctors, outings. Then one day you look up and a LOT OF THINGS you KNOW you put on the calendar are GONE! Yes, COZI has NO admin authority, so go ahead and schedule your life away. Then have your 10 year old open his calendar, leave the phone open an inadvertantly (or not) DELETE calendared events! This has been a nightmare resulting in TWO important events being deleted, info lost, and NO WAY TO RECOVER> When it first happened I contacted them and their reply was "oh yeah, we dont have a solution for that, anyone using the app can freely or mistakenly delete events" Now, it has happened a second time on a very serious appointment scheduled months in advance, and I am beyond furious. This is a FAMILY calendar. When it is only as strong as a 10 year olds fat finger mistake, its USELESS. They need to add an admin 4 # password to allow an event to be deleted. Trust me folks, the advantages quickly become a NIGHTMARE when your kid decides to muck around in the app thats supposed to bring families together. I am on the hunt for something new. We cant afford another screwup in this app that has no parental controls over deletions! They know about it and havent fixed it.
Nice for families but...
by Annalynne on 2018/10/30 19:17
UPDATE: with all of the free apps available these days, this one is outrageously expensive annually for the gold membership benefits. I researched for months before getting this calendar. I’m a grandmother who babysits for multiple families. It’s very hard scheduling between us all over the phone and we needed a place where we could put our schedules that we could merge together and see who is available when. This one works very nicely even as the free version. But for our needs we upgraded to the paid version which I think is too expensive. The only problem I have with this app other than the high annual cost, is I find it very difficult to distinguish between the months , weeks and days. I think there needs to be a higher contrast visually as you scroll through. Sometimes I put my things in the wrong box because distinguishing between them is not that easy. The location of the date in the box is sometimes a little confusing. I just think there needs to be a better visual display separating the months, weeks and days. Especially for anybody with low vision but even for those with good vision. Otherwise it’s a nice app in the paid version offers many useful features.
Not as good as I thought it was
by Ipodallthetime on 2017/06/26 19:38
When I found this calendar I was so excited. We have a really busy family and lots of moving parts. I was so happy I wouldn't have to send emails and texts as reminders anymore or field the when and where questions. It was all at our fingertips. Until I had to get a new phone. My old phone died. I got a new one and as is the usual I needed to sign back into the app. Only I can't sign back in. At all. I thought I had forgotten my password, but nope, my email address isn't recognized. I emailed customer service where I get an auto generated response telling me it will be at least 3 days before they will get back to me. If I am paying for the app (which Im not) it will be sooner. So after waiting 3 days I receive an email suggesting that I may have typed in the wrong email address or spelled it incorrectly. This is as if I'm bot intelligent enough to think of that on my own that I had to wait three days for someone to point it out. So I responded to the email letting them know what I tried and guess what...they will get back to me in 3-5 days. I will no longer be using this app. If I have to start a new account I would rather go to an app that cares about their customers and that realizes how important a family calendar is. So incredibly disappointed in this app and their level of customer service.
Great for organization of the family
by Kshoe14 on 2019/01/23 17:08
My husband is always asking me, “do we have anything planned for next weekend!?” -after I have told him our plans almost daily for the last month- NOW i can say “check the cozi!!” My husband is a Samsung lover, and I’m an apple advocate, so this helps join our lives easily. I also like the joined lists. My husband has a cleaning and to do list, and so do I. I like this because we know exactly what needs to be done, and it holds us accountable. This app would get 10 stars if it had a pantry list, so when I’m at the store, I can also look to see what’s in my pantry and replenish if need be. I’ve tried other pantry apps, but the importance of having an app that shares this list would be HUGE. That way if my husband eats all the peanut butter, he could check it off, and that could get added to the shopping list automatically. Developers?!? I am currently using the free cozi, but if this was an option, and it ACTUALLY worked (a lot of the pantry apps Ive tried are crap) I would definitely pay!
It’s awesome except for a couple small things
by TheCrazyBernards on 2019/02/04 15:48
I really like this app for organizing and sharing a calendar between multiple people. We have 6 kids so they are everywhere, I especially like the feature where they can add something to the calendar and we all see it. My only complaint is the addresses; When adding an address to an event in the iphones basic calendar it pops up so you don’t have to type the whole thing, which this app doesn’t do - it’s lazy but I don’t want to type the whole thing in, lol. I also wish I could type in the location area the name and if it’s saved in my contacts once again....it pops up and fills out automatically. Also some events happen yearly that aren’t birthday, like my friends baby who died I like calling her every year to tell her I’m there for her for example. Events that happen weekly like various sports or church would be nice to have an icon like the birthday icon next to it. I’m trying the Gold for a year to see how I like it, but so far so good for the most part!! My notes would make things easier to handle or just thoughts.
Best calendar app EVER
by Kristyn0417 on 2019/04/05 14:15
My husband and I were looking for a good shared calendar to keep track of allllll the things. We found this and gave it a try. We upgraded to gold after we were using it for a bit and saw the value in the gold membership. The “lists” portion of the app is absolutely incredible. We plan our out meals for the week and I just found that they have some preselected recipes so I was scrolling those and decided to give one a try. You can add all of the ingredients to your grocery list with one click (and just as easily delete the ingredients you don’t need to pick up for it). I thought that was so cool. But then I found something even COOLER! I was searching recipes online and I went to share one to my email so I could print it and I found that I can share it to the cozi app and it will create the recipe there for you so all you have to do is click a button and all the ingredients will go to your list again. And that’s just ONE feature of this app. Definitely worth it. We love it.
Convenient
by Tamar69 on 2017/09/03 17:01
Pros: Calendar helps keep you & your kids on the same page with events, activities, appointments, due dates, etc. by facilitating ease of communication & a visual reminder. Shopping lists also allow all users to add & remove items, making shopping trips more productive. Cons: Annoying ads everywhere with basic (free) version; some features only available with Gold (paid) version. When I added "laundry detergent" to my shopping list, Cozi "suggested" its ad brand and embedded the ad into my list. Yuck. Also, Calendar view isn't visually appealing/easy to look at. SUGGESTIONS/REQUESTS: It would be SO much more convenient if the Grocery List had SECTIONS (e.g., Produce, Frozen, Deli, etc.) for items - it would really expedite the actual shopping process (no more backtracking 5 aisles to get that peanut butter you skipped!). It would also be cool if the Lists could identify or track those items you buy on almost every trip to the store, and suggest said items each time a new list is started.
OMG! Organizers heaven!
by Sophiasgrace on 2019/01/03 17:57
I saw an ad for this on Facebook and I thought it might help organize my families activities and such. OMG! I have used this every day since I downloaded it, it is so useful. It notifies every family member every time you add something to the agenda, everyone can see grocery lists, you can search for recipes or so easily just add all your favorite recipes from the web - just copy and paste the web address. It allows you to plan your meals out by simply clicking on a recipe and adding it to your calendar and then adding the recipes to your shopping list so you are sure to have everything. I simply search Pinterest for recipes I want to try and add them to the family recipe file. It has a button to keep your phone from turning off while you are in recipe mode. I mean, come on! This makes me look Martha effing stewert! And I’m sorry but all this organizational help and a subscription that amounts to about 2.50 a month? What could you possibly not love about this?
Worth it!
by ImagineHatch on 2017/11/27 11:26
Our family used the free version of Cozi for a few months before we upgraded. We don’t typically purchase apps and keep a pretty strict budget but Cozi has been worth every penny! With 5 kids and a business, we rely on this app to keep things in order. One of my favorite features is the shared lists. My kids can see their chore lists and my hubby can see our grocery list if he’s out running errands. I also love being able to add things to the calendar far in advance and using our calendar to let everyone know what’s for dinner and getting our meal plan together. We haven’t tried any of Cozi’s recipes but I like being able to add recipes from other sites. This app is everything we need and has been worth every single penny. The best part about the upgrade is that it’s a one-time payment and not a subscription. So I paid a few bucks once and now we have access to everything. We love love love this app! Highly recommended!!!!
Gold scam alert!!
by Jimkcec on 2021/05/03 13:51
I have asked for help now for over six months!! 2 years ago all was well in the family plan I thought it would be a neat gift for the family so I added the gold and my account was charged for several years. My family and myself never got access as it was only placed on my email and not the family!! Once I realized this I was eliminated from the family plan and now almost a year of email cannot get back to see the family plan. This with covid and 2 daughter graduating from high school has made COZI useless to me and not worth the money for gold or aggravation. I would highly not recommend this software as they scam you into going Gold then lock you out of the account and the only support is through email and very slow! I am not the only one that has experienced this as their frequently asked questions states if this occurs get in touch with customer service! I would highly advise seeking better business bureau help and or cancelling your card as they do not respond in a timely manner! The message I got was they see my plan and that I have paid for the service but they never attached it to the family plan and it has never worked!! Beware of the scam!!
Crashes, puts things on wrong day
by eaymsmg on 2020/07/07 14:34
I rely on my free version of Cozi a lot but when I try to update my calendar on my iPhone it has a years-long history of crashing and losing all my updates - I get a msg that somebody just made changes so my changes were lost or something like that - and every time I get this message I was the person who just made the changes (my husband never logs on). It also does not always place items on the date I selected when I opened the calendar post screen - I have to go back and search the calendar for the mistaken entry, or just place the item again in the right place & know there is a duplicate out there somewhere. When I have time to dedicate, I plan to transfer to a different app. I currently don’t have the extra funds to go back to the paid version, but when I paid for it, the same things were happening. I have reloaded and changed my password several times to no avail. Not reliable enough for 5 stars, but was a helpful app before all the crashing, etc.
Still dislike
by Mandapan on 2018/06/28 06:53
I tried this app several years ago in a coparenting situation and didn’t care for it then. We ended up using a different, much more expensive, app/site and were happy for several years. I pulled this app back in this month because my husband and I need one calendar for our family. The one he wanted to use required invitations to be sent, which weren’t accepted, and events didn’t get added. I prefer paper, which cannot be shared easily on the go with three kids. I was really really happy with it for about four days. I entered a TON of events and activities and travel information. I entered grocery lists and to-dos. I loved it for what I needed. Then I gave my husband the password to log in and join me. That’s pretty much when the honeymoon ended. Day 1- my to-dos and grocery lists were deleted. Okay. No problem. Rentered it all. Day 2- every. Single. Effing. Calendar entry was DELETED. don’t know what he did. But I can almost guarantee he doesn’t either. I do know that, literally, hours of my time were wasted. So I deleted the app. There’s no way to secure the entries and protect them from deletion. It’s too risky to depend on this calendar for actual families who need this information saved.
Divorce Arguments down 95%
by Sandman SF Bay on 2017/08/03 15:34
My ex-wife brought Cozi to my attention years ago (2009?). For and handful of years we consistently bickered and quarreled over one or the other not remembering or not thinking the other person remembered things she or I planned into the kids' schedules. With Cozi, 95% of our reasons to have weekly (or daily) flare ups were eliminated. Having one master calendar source (with reminders) to refer to just made daily life smoother for all of us (most especially our children who stopped seeing their parents bicker over little things so frequently in the past. As a guy, who can remember 3 things told to me in a rapid verbal laundry list of "To Dos" before I simply don't retain any additional info (but who is indeed a will do...follow-through and dependable person), Cozi has been invaluable. Thanks for being largely responsible for 8+ years of much smoother sailing through the daily realities of divorce with children Cozi!
Using for years and my rating keeps going down
by TheresaEstrada on 2021/02/15 16:31
I’ve been using Cozi, as a Gold subscriber for years. I started out rating it 5 stars and recommending it to all my friends and family. Now, I only use it because there aren’t many other great options and it’s a pain to switch to something else. Over the years it seems the development team has basically stopped investing in this app. The UI looks the same as it did when I originally installed it, which now seems dated. They used to add new features regularly; now, I see bugs causing the app to crash in basic scenarios for months before they get around to addressing them. I’ve finally moved over to a new recipe system and meal organizer, found a new way to manage my family’s calendar and an app to track family location. Cozi had so much potential to be the “Hub” for our family. Instead, the only thing I’m bothering to use this for now is the shared shopping list because my kids are trained to put what they need on it. Once I find a better solution for that, it will be bye-bye Cozi unless something revolutionary happens with this app.
Loving it so far - after a few changes would be irreplaceable!
by Italyrose on 2017/10/19 18:23
I love this app for calendar sharing! I can notify my husband of changes and I can enter data from the computer - much easier for me!! I love that I can send notifications to him and he uses our COZI calendar as his calendar too. We don't have to "push" appointments to and from each other. If I update it on COZI, he sees it. I also love that I can instantaneously update the grocery list and he sees it (in case I remember something while he is shopping). I only gave it 4 stars because I would love to be able to copy an appointment! If I have an event with a couple of possible dates now I have to enter all the data twice, or enter a hair appointment - same info as last time just a new date. I would also love to be able to sync with contacts so I don't have to look up an address for the location. Another great add would be syncing with my iPhone calendar in case I like to use both. Still LOVE the app though :).
User Friendly
by Dewdropmas on 2019/04/11 20:01
Our extended family has finally found a shared calendar we all can live with. It is easy to enter or edit an event & indicate who is participating. There is extra room on a pop-up screen when you want to provide extra detail about an event but because it pops up when you want it, it isn’t in the way from seeing the larger picture. It is easy to see at one glance what is happening no matter which device you are using at the time. When you are away from home it is easy to make an appointment and know that you are not going to conflict with something else. Customer service is timely, friendly & helpful even if you are using the free version. Using Cozi has eliminated scheduling problems within the family. It is meeting our needs very nicely. If you are looking for a way to coordinate family events, do give Cozi a try.
Great with an annoying flaw
by Frendlycat on 2019/11/05 23:46
My family has used this app for awhile and likes it overall. However I am sick of the fact the app is set up in a way where your lists pop up, then after a delay of a second or so what is on the page shifts so that an advertisement link is in the place where your list used to be. Too many times I hit an ad link instead of my list because of this last minute “page layout switch.” This does NOT happen on other apps and I have a very nice iPhone so this an app feature that I have had enough of. After being tricked into clicking an ad too many times today I am considering finding a better app. I have no doubt this is done deliberately to give the appearance of an inflated number of ad clicks but it is stupid and useless. If I do not want to see an ad and did not deliberately click it then it quickly gets closed out quickly anyway, but I am tired of dealing with thus irritation for the appearance of extra ad clicks. There is no excuse for this. Unfortunate.
2+
by Angme37 on 2020/07/15 21:54
Not bad but will raise it to 5 stars once I can bring all my calendars over to Cozi. I do like the layout and how everything is. I bought gold thinking that when I sync my google cal or Apple cal it would remind me of my events on my calendar but it does not. I’m not going into every single event I have on Cozi to change it to send me a Notification. It should have this option as a default but it does not. Yes I have it enabled in my settings to receive notifications . I have tested this in your app if you do not put to remind you which again it should be set to do this as default to remind you then it will not remind you at all and then I tested to remind me and it reminded me. No one wants to go into every single event and put send reminder. That’s why it should be set as default so it actually reminds you when you add a calendar to your app. Hopefully it’s something you add soon cause I know myself would love for every time you make an event or move calendars over it puts notifications as a default. Wish I knew it didn’t have this before buying it.
OK but...
by Hargrepa on 2020/02/07 12:49
I use an iPhone... I have it set to receive notifications, the only notifications I get or the 4 other people using is an email, no pop up notifications. Tried everything I can think of, so has everyone else using. Followed all steps to link Apple calendar to Cozi and visa versa. Many times. Zero success. My son plays baseball and the coach uses Team Snap for all practices, games etc, it took me less than a minute to link that to the Apple calendar. I look online and see reviews complaining of same issue from 2014, why 6 years later is it no better? Update I’ve had a prompt and comprehensive reply to my issues with Cozi. Their tech support, Marian, did a through and complete study of my and my family settings. Deleting and reloading app seemed to to the trick for my notifications issue, go figure. The linking of calendars seems to be an Apple issue. Thank you for taking the time to study my issues.....great tech support!
Great App Love but needs improvements
by Smart Professinal on 2017/10/23 04:11
I really love this app but needs improvements to be more user friendly. My first complaint is the grocery list has too many steps to erase the items & I cannot tell you how dumbfounded I am no one at Cozy can figure this out. Adding items to the calendar has to change because I keep putting an appointment type it close it then I cannot find it because to input the date it’s just terrible again way too many steps come on people!!this is meant to replace the paper agenda keep this in mind genius developers!! I have kids and let me tell this app fails me as a parent hire Dads and Moms as developers to figure out what I’m talking about because you clearly have no CLUE!! So I’ll keep the app for now until I find another one who knows what the heck I’m talking about. FYI I’m a professional who has a full time job
Month Calendar View
by Popples987 on 2019/04/07 11:41
I am currently on a trial for Gold and have been testing out other family organization apps. I love most of what Cozi has to offer and I love the simple and user friendly interface and text, however the month calendar view that I was so excited to get access too is disappointing to say the least. The layout is awful and actual distinct boxes and the date numbers on the upper left of each box would be less confusing, I would prefer color coded text and the ability to click on the day and have the events pull up underneath the calendar in a manner similar to the week view, with even the option to scroll through the subsequent days in this section as well. Also, being able to set an actual location that can be pulled up on maps would be amazing! I am still looking at other options, but I see so much potential for Cozi. I just can’t justify paying the premium for access to a calendar that is essentially unusable.
Don’t buy Gold; terrible design
by D.Alexarnett on 2020/01/20 16:07
I made the $30 mistake of purchasing Gold, primarily so that I could access the 1-month calendar view. I didn’t realize- because you cannot preview the full calendar view without paying $30- that Cozi has decided to format their calendar exactly opposite to any other calendar I have ever used. On each day’s rectangle, the day’s events are formatted to the very top, while the numerical date is formatted to the bottom. Maybe the malfunction is specific to my brain and not the app, but I was absolutely confused as to which week the calendar items were associated with. I contacted Cozi support and they let me know that while they were more than happy to TAKE my money, they were sorry to report that they have absolutely no mechanism to give it back. They pointed me to Apple Support, which summarily rejected my request for a refund without even allowing a human being to read what I had typed into their text box. So, buyer beware. You’ll have to shell out $30 to discover the mystery of whether or not Cozi’s absolutely unintuitive design and interface confuses you as much as it did me.
Still a good app; BUT…!
by abq jim on 2021/05/28 15:04
The most recent updates to Cozi have really screwed up the ability to delete list items! And badly!!! Now it seems the only way to delete something from a shopping list is to CHECK IT on the list, then go to a menu and select “Delete all checked”! Wonder what moron came up with this ridiculous idea! What if I actually want to retain a checked item (or several items that I purchase frequently) as reminders for my next trip? Hey Cozi guys/gals; please fix this ASAP. Update, 28-May-2021 Cozi folks contacted me over this comment and explained the cause was related to an Ad campaign that was going on at the time. They even gave me access to the paid version for the duration so this wouldn’t happen again. This was accompanied by a pledge to make certain the flaw in UI design would be addressed to prevent any further issues. Well done, Cozi! This seems to me as almost unprecedented support from a FREE App.
Best Family Scheduler!
by Wildcat0520 on 2021/01/14 16:35
We’ve used this app for many years now, and the whole family is trained to use it! Love the color-coding, super easy to put things in right away, it’s clean to look at, user-friendly and love all the extra features too - but the calendar is the best. I truly prefer this one to any of the others I’ve tried. A couple of suggestions that I think would improve this for me is for the color coding to go beyond just the dot...it would be even easier to tell them apart at a quick glance. So that for each person the entire entry would be in their color. Also, I would LOVE it if the Cozi app could link easily to other calendars. For example, if i could directly link it to my Apple calendar, it would also link to my watch. I wouldn’t have to enter things on both apps individually.
Good but could use some improvements
by Emmybug179 on 2020/07/21 19:00
The good: - it does what it says. It is a family organizer and allows me to see my husband’s work schedule so that we can coordinate childcare, etc. - it aids in communication. It solves that whole “I didn’t know you had drinks tonight!” The term “it’s in cozy” has replaced “it’s on the calendar.” -it is color coded and has the person’s name underneath to make things clear -the shared to-do list is a game changer - same for the grocery list. Needed improvements: - the default participation for every event is “All [members],” even when you’re in an individual’s calendar. I have to manually unselect All for every event, which is annoying when I’m putting in my work schedule. - it would be very helpful to set up recurring events without needing to add a patterned. Especially for shift workers. For example, i work 6am-6pm but not in a patterned schedule that I could put on repeat. It would be helpful to make a 6am-6pm event or tag that I can apply on the calendar instead of manually setting the time for each shift. It would also be helpful for childcare, for example make an event called “pickup” at 5pm that I can apply to any days I need my husband to do pickup. - I can’t figure out how to view just certain members’ schedules. If I just want to look at my husband’s and my schedules but not my sister’s childcare needs, I can’t.
TRIAL PERIOD OF COZI GOLD
by Dgy3gt on 2018/01/24 12:41
My husband and I are retired and I was looking for a simplistic way to share a calendar, grocery list and to do list. I very quickly decided the ads were going to be distracting and decided to use the 14-day free trial of Cozi Gold to determine if this is the app for us. I like the ease of making multiple shopping lists (grocery store, Sam's, Walmart, etc), the ease of making individual To Do lists and the ease of adding things to the lists. What I don't like is being unable to rearrange and organize the items on each list after they are entered. For example, I add things to the grocery list as I need them, but am unable to organize the list to make it easy to shop. Also, I have a lengthy To Do list and would like the option of rearranging to prioritize my chores. I haven't moved our calendar to the Cozi app yet, but read in another review you can't repeat entries without reentering all the information. Unless there are ways I've missed to do these things, I'll be leaving Cozi. DEVELOPER: Can you help?
Ok but could be better
by User7835 on 2018/01/06 17:43
I’ll start by saying my wife and I have used this app for about six years. We got it initially because it was about the only decent family calendar in the App Store when we started looking. We never upgraded to the full pay version because it’s ridiculously expensive for limited improvement. It’s nice to have a family planning app with shared calendar, shared lists, recipes, journal, etc, BUT each of these components are all mediocre. I have a “to do” app, a recipe app, that are much more functional (and still free). My wife and I also just started using the iOS calendar app with family sharing. It’s easy to set up shared calendars and it has better calendar views than Cozi. For the money Cozi makes from advertising and paid subscriptions they should have a top-of-the line product to offer, but they don’t. The developers have done little to improve the app it the time we’ve been using it either. After over five years of using Cozi, I’ll be moving on.
Great for busy families
by Silverramette on 2018/11/28 01:42
Negatives (why it lost a star): Unlike apple calendar, this app will not search locations for events so you must manually enter locations/addresses. Also this app’s charge for Gold is ridiculously high and not worth the price for a few extra features. The app does not coordinate with social media like Facebook events. Positives: Anyone can enter an appointment or event and all can see it. If you are invited to an event you receive a notification plus weekly reminders for events. I write my grocery list out on paper but the grocery list function is useful to me if I’m out and about and need to give myself a reminder to add something to my list. The app is easy to use—so much so that my retired parents use it (they watch my kids after school). I haven’t really used the recipe section but I like the idea of it. It might be worth it to have user submitted recipes.
Organization!!!
by Was a fan :( on 2019/02/17 17:24
Cozi has become our personal assistant. With family members spread over several states we manage to find weekend get always that work for the whole family. Being able to post to each others calendars is a benefit! For the immediate household we are always up to date on neighborhood gatherings, personal appointments, and our daughters college & dating schedule. Cozi recipes, and shopping make life easy on daily basis. Reminders, help us organize days in advance. Household maintenance schedules are easier to follow with Cozi. To do lists make floating chore days easy work through! The the same chores getting done weekly by three people on different days, so nothing’s overwhelming! To do list made for an easier move last year! Birthday reminders help us remember things when we are at a frantic pace.
So far so good
by Momof3Brooklyn on 2019/11/18 14:15
My husband and I have been using the free version of this app for a week trying to determine if we liked it enough to use instead of handwritten version of a family command center in our kitchen. Getting my husband to use a new app is typically difficult but he’s been on board pretty well so far. There are a few annoyances that keep this app from being really great though and I’m writing to see if the app makers can fix: 1. Being able to move to-do’s from one list to another. Currently you have to re-create the todo under a different list and delete the first. Not efficient when I’m trying to create efficiency. 2. Lists seem to always default upon opening to the Shopping list view instead of sticking to what you were last viewing, in my case typically the To Do lists.
Constant crashing!
by Need a reliable organizer on 2017/07/15 14:28
I have used and loved and highly recommended Cozi for the past 2 years to organize our large family. But in the last month it crashes within seconds of opening nearly every time I try to use it which is many times a day. Very frustrating as our entire lives are organized by this app. I'll have to switch since this is just not workable and doesn't seem to be changing. Update- I have removed and reinstalled Cozi no less than 25 times in the last month. I've even removed other apps that I thought might be interfering, deleted many things to increase available memory, performed soft resets on my phone multiple times and taken my phone into the store to see if they had any ideas. Cozi still crashes every time I open it. It seems to be to be related to how complicated you've made it now with all the little unnecessary pop up screens and extras that seem great but really aren't needed in a basic calendar app. I wish you could go back to the basics and then just leave it alone.
Good app but...
by JLaudert on 2020/09/24 15:49
I really wish there was a version on Apple Watch with a few simple things such as viewing to do lists, calendar items, and shopping lists. It’s great on mobile, having all our info in one place is very helpful and there’s more to it than just a simple calendar. My fiancé and I leave each other sweet family journal entries at random and I love “finding” them. So far it’s just the two of us using it, but I plan on getting my kids into it soon, now that they’re in junior high and have more to keep track of each day. Having a Watch app with reminders throughout the day would be amazing because I could make sure the kids put their due-dates for assignments in it and I could help them stay on task simply from my wrist...if I see something is due soon, I could just send them an iMessage while I’m at work without having to go get my phone.
Love it, but has minor glitches
by happyuser&76$ on 2019/03/14 19:27
Love the fact that I can synchronize my schedule with the rest of the family’s. I liked the way time was entered before. Now, it is difficult because when I enter the time, sometimes it gets changed by mistake if I touch the screen (it is very sensitive to touch and easily changed) and I end up with the wrong time messing up my schedule. I liked the drop down option better. That option was impossible to change by mistake. Also, sometimes I keep entering ‘pm’, but when I save, the time still displays ‘am’. No matter how many times I change it, it remains ‘am’. Very annoying. Usually, it changes to the right time the next time I open the app, but I never know if I saved the right time or not. Other than that, the app is great. I use it every day.
Calendar is great; Lists not as great
by Baayybee789 on 2017/06/28 23:16
I tried Cozi when it first came out and it never really worked for me. Recently I was talking with a friend and she raved about so I gave it another chance. Now I really like it, especially the calendar. It is really intuitive and easy to use. The lists, while intuitive, are not as helpful. I like the subtitles but once I've added an item I can't move it to a subcategory. My style is to brain dump my list items and organize later. I also like to organize my errands by priority and/or location. I use another app called Errands that I like better for the To Do list. I love the shopping list functionality in Cosi a lot though, especially the recipe integration but I still want to organize my lists by store/grocery aisle, etc. Cut and paste is too time consuming. I would prefer a grab and drop interface or something similar.
Love it! Needs a couple more features to be super useful to me...
by W8! on 2019/09/28 23:08
Works great as a family grocery list for sure. My kids have it on their phones and when they run out of something or want something new, they add it to the list and I see it when I’m at the store. It also works great as a repeatable packing list, particularly with the Heading feature to let me organize the list within the lists. For example, I create subheadings for toiletries, business travel, international travel, clothes, etc, and when I put it in my suitcase I mark it off the list. When everything is packed, I select the feature to Uncheck All and I have the list at the ready for my return trip as well as future trips. The two features that would make this app even more useful for me are: 1) the ability to change the list item to a different List or To Do, and 2) the ability to add a date to a list item to make it appear on the calendar. I can’t tell you how many times I had something on my Walmart shopping list but needed to put it on my BJs or grocery list, and there are things in my To Do world that need to be completed by specific dates but need to be on a master To Do list where I can see them all in case I can get to it earlier. With those two features, I’d give this app a 5 star rating. Thanks!
Awesome For Families!
by Smcramer on 2017/11/09 13:37
A must-have for families! This app helps us keep our family's schedule organized and everyone aware of what's happening. We have 5 people's schedules, plus the dog, my husband's work travel schedule, a home business ... lots going on. This app keeps us going! I LOVE the shared shopping list feature in Cozi Gold! All the users can add to multiple lists so that when one person is shopping, the list is just there! Birthday reminders are fantastic too! My only “wish list" items for this app are: (1) I wish it had a reminder setting for when certain bills are due; (2) I wish the items themselves could have an option for color coding based on person or category; (3) I wish the sub-categories were easier to work with. Those three features would complete it for me!
Month review
by Hilario23 on 2021/07/13 18:48
We did the paid version because me and the wife have two kids who are starting to break into extra curricular activities (2nd grade and Kind). We wanted a seemless shared calendar. While In function I can say this fills that void, I can’t quite say why it feels a little clunky in practical use. Perhaps I need to temper my expectations of why an organizer app can do? The shared grocery list is great, the input to add to the calendar and assign different family members is nice but there’s functional things that a family on the go will yearn for. Things like integrating photos into your notes or even calendar entry’s would be great (how many of you see an add on Facebook or website and screen shot it?). Also personally for me I just don’t find myself reverting back to apples standard calendar app because this isn’t offering that much more over the OEM app.
