Yuck!
by LindylouB on 2021/04/09 20:59
I upgraded to the gold and it was a huge mistake. The monthly view is all crammed in super small. I don’t want to see two months at a time. I only want to see one. The colors that I love from the daily view do not move into the monthly. This could be the worst calendar I have ever used. A total waste of money!
Applications
by Goro Olia on 2021/04/09 19:12
I feel like I get very little with this app unless I purchase it yearly. I can’t even use a monthly view without paying for it.
Love this app
by Wsjohn on 2021/04/09 15:23
My Husband and I use it all the time!
Home Screen
by ItsYaGirlMandizzle on 2021/04/08 04:27
Would be 5 stars if the Home Screen worked. Just a blank screen whenever I open the app. All of the other tabs work, just not the Home Screen.
Super easy and convenient
by G Nourse on 2021/04/07 23:00
My wife and I have relied on this app for years now as a private stand-alone family planner. Great for knowing what everybody is doing and when from meetings to doctor appointments to work-out session to weekend plans. We keep our to-do lists and shopping lists on here as well. It’s great!
Cozi
by CLAREBZE on 2021/04/07 04:25
Every so often the app stops working. I have the premium version. Today, even though I am ‘online’, the app says I’m offline and I need to be online to edit a recurring a recurring event 😩 Update- got a quick reply from developers and the problem was fixed. I rely on COZI every day so it’s great to get a response and a fix in a timely basis. Thanks. Upping to 4stars
It’s great!
by Hannah4ster on 2021/04/07 03:05
My family uses it. It’s great for us all to stay on the same page easily!
Love it!
by rose1997 on 2021/04/06 14:39
I enjoy this app. It has helped me remember appointments and other things I forget about! I do have some feedback. I put in a school schedule for my kid, but I wish there were limitations so I can have an event repeat through a certain time period as well. That way, I don’t have to manually take out the school schedule for the summer. I also don’t understand why the repeated reminders have to be in the full version.
Cozi

I love my cozi schedule and extras. Keeps me organized.
iOS app will not connect to internet
by impulsiveminimalist on 2021/04/04 15:31
I have reinstalled the app a few times but it keeps giving an error it can’t connect to the internet. The ads load fine though and every other app on my phone runs fine. It stopped working 13 days ago. Will update review when It starts working or when I get an update from support.
List feature is very glitchy today
by Dave sgj on 2021/04/04 14:55
We have loved Cozi up until today - the List feature is creating a duplicate entry for every item I try to input, and then it won’t let me delete just one of the items - it deletes both. It also has me continuously in offline mode, despite being on my home WiFi. I’ll give you a week or so to fix, then we’ll be deleting.
Newest version broke the app
by Fresno Papa on 2021/04/04 14:45
I’ve been a Cozi user for years. Most recent update now I keep getting errors “your families household data hasn’t finished downloading yet.” Desktop version works fine.
Useless - stuck in offline mode
by Jjjjjjjjjjjenjjjjjjjjj on 2021/04/04 14:42
Our family has been using this app for a few years and overall it’s pretty good, and I would have given 4 stars. Recently have an issue where it says I’m not connected to internet (which I am) and is stuck in offline mode. Seems to have started since I updated to iOS 14.4.2. None of the normal troubleshooting basics (turning WiFi mode off and on, hard closing the app, powering off phone, powering off cable modem and router, deleting and reinstalling the app) work.
Sooo many bugs!
by RandomChris1981 on 2021/04/04 13:37
This app concept is great. It does everything we want. But there are almost too many bugs for it to function properly. List items and entire categories disappear our double up for no reason. Huge blank sections appear on to do lists. If the bugs can be fixed, it would be a very useful tool.
Stopped working
by chrisjdennis on 2021/04/04 12:33
No longer updating. Duplicating inputs. Now doesn’t see any details. Worthless in current state
Had issues...and not sure why my review is removed
by rfrfgghjh on 2021/04/02 15:05
Needs some work on the iPhone. It worked great on my Android phone. I notice that with a lot of apps after switching. I assume that is because it is harder (so I have been told) to write/design apps for Apple. My major issue is while adding something to the list, say milk, as I am typing milk the keyboard will disappear while typing leaving only Mi instead of milk. Then, since the keyboard disappears while typing, I now click on one of the other items on the list causing that item to be opened to edit. Now I have to click back out of that and go reopen milk (or in my case Mi because I wasn't finished typing). Now, that only does this the first time when you open the app. And each time you reopen the app. If I continue adding items it does not repeat until I close the app and reopen it.
Love Cozi... but...
by Seegertjr on 2021/04/01 14:50
Have recommended Cozi to multiple families. Great sharing of calendar and to do lists which is very helpful. BUT... it needs a widget!! Please. :)
Easy to use!
by grandma5kids on 2021/03/31 23:54
Cozi easy to use and simple, even if you aren’t ap oriented
No Contacts in iOS App
by realitycheckinc on 2021/03/30 22:15
I paid for Cozi Gold so I could use shared contacts. They don’t show on the iOS app. Why?
Great
by rock koi boy on 2021/03/30 13:41
This is a really great and easy to use app that you family and friends could be pat of
Best app ever!
by EiGraphics on 2021/03/29 14:36
This app is perfect! I’ve enjoyed it for so many years!!!
I can’t change who is going to a event
by Scoffman21 on 2021/03/29 02:40
I just downloaded the app and I’m plugging in all of our family events and notice it won’t keep the person going on the event. It just says all for everyone going. Then I change an event to just two people going and it won’t show up who’s going with their color dot. What am I doing wrong?
Extremely Helpful
by Janiedoecms on 2021/03/28 12:44
This app helps my husband stay on the same page at all times. He can remind me of things and i can remind him of things. Super thankful for this app. 💙
Great for family and work life
by GG Flying😊 on 2021/03/28 12:41
The app is good and is helpful. Use to be able to include family in notifications but that feature seems to not work anymore, really miss that. If you get it must pay for the GOLD or all the ads and limitations makes it hard if you are not a Gold member, been using this Cozi and Fly Lady for 8 years😀
Great app
by keayrates33 on 2021/03/25 17:38
Love it!
The Best Out There
by angrykaye on 2021/03/25 17:06
I tried several apps before this one and I think it’s the best out there. It does the basics and does them well. It’s a bit tricky to click on calendar events to edit. I’d also like to see some extra spots for house or family info/information... measurements of dining table, size of curtains needed, clothing sizes etc. I’d like a permanent (staple) grocery list to refer to. I’ve mostly created that stuff within the list option given, but it can get a bit confusing. I’d also like an address book and probably some other things I’m not thinking of at the moment.
Ease of use
by fwrcmr on 2021/03/25 16:37
Very easy to use. I love it.
Grandparents are in the Loop
by Noble driver on 2021/03/25 14:42
An easy way to keep my parents in the loop on what’s going on with my family and children is loop them in to Cozi. They love getting to see what’s happening.
Very useful shared family list app
by Shawnh28 on 2021/03/25 13:43
We use this as our go-to grocery store list app shared over multiple devices. They all sync together and on the fly. Very good app and highly recommended!
Hi,
by Khurley34 on 2021/03/23 20:23
Love the app for my family calendar but hoping there is an Alexa integration as well as the ability to communicate and send reminders by mobile text (to family members) instead of by email. Thanks
Cozi is so cool!
by rosealie bob on 2021/03/23 14:26
It helps my family
Son of a broken toe rod
by Sabumnim 8 on 2021/03/23 13:02
Well it was a noise and a problem steering. Took the car to the good ole boys. They found the answer to my question of what it might be? Then they fixed it and gave me a dang good price too! I am a happy customer. Been going here for 5+ years.
Pretty good
by Srmapple on 2021/03/21 20:40
So far, so good! It’s easy and practical. I like that each family member can have calendar items and lists with the gold membership. I like its simplicity. Other organizers are illogical.
Reminders
by RichieBock13 on 2021/03/21 14:05
Would like to have daily morning reminders
It’s awesome!
by AlwaysTiredOnTheMornings on 2021/03/21 06:41
My family uses it to manage appointments so that we all know what is happening for the week before we schedule anything else. It has helped not to overlap appointments especially if they are for my schooling
Love this app
by Pattimelt1222 on 2021/03/19 21:14
I was using my notes app to put everything in and it was very convenient but I do like this better. Very handy app. Love it!!

This app makes shopping so easy since my wife and I both shop for groceries at different times.
Awesome App
by Bakeshot on 2021/03/17 22:23
Easiest way to keep up with events I’ve seen. Really works for me. I have shared with friends.
Not too user friendly
by Virgorowan on 2021/03/17 16:21
Cant edit what you have scheduled. Also you can seeit as a list
Hard to view
by Mom5179 on 2021/03/15 14:26
Note: you don't get the month view until you pay. The month view doesn't have lines between the days so it is hard to see at a glance. Everything is black so you can't see which things are for which people. Disappointed.
Great schedule app
by D.E.DeG on 2021/03/15 14:11
We have been using this app for over 3 yrs. It is very easy to use and really helps tracking everyone’s schedule. This has eliminated over lapping schedules and notifies you of changes/ new appointments. We really like this app.
A useful tool
by Schmo965 on 2021/03/15 05:17
I use Cozi to share a calendar with my wife. It’s a really good app. I was frustrated that half the time I put something I had to go back in and edit because it randomly defaulted to a day or two in the past. But then the developer told me to input events in the calendar view rather than the daily view (agenda) and it works like a charm.
It’s gotten worse over the years
by Bulljan8285 on 2021/03/13 07:58
I’ve used Cozi for several years now. I keep waiting for them to add new features and make the current ones better but the opposite has happened. Until recently it had a helpful contacts feature. My whole family could look up names and addresses right on Cozi without having to ask me every time. I used it to download addresses for my Christmas cards too. They eliminated this feature recently without even asking for input from users. They promised new features but I’m still waiting. I do like the calendar and lists features but an undo feature is desperately needed. It shouldn’t be so clunky after so many years.
Pretty good
by Zammalamba on 2021/03/12 03:12
Pretty good. Please add support for dark mode.
Useful lists app
by Wes R on 2021/03/12 01:31
This app is great for my grocery list, Costco list, etc., because the whole family can add their own things instead of asking me to add it.
Sad
by quancuvo on 2021/03/10 19:44
I used to adore this app, even got my friends hooked on it. But now you took away my ability to create schedules and it stinks. That was pretty low. I have used this app for EIGHT YEARS and now you put schedules behind the paywall. Thanks for nothing.
Cozi is my Go To
by GiveBetterHelp on 2021/03/09 18:36
I have the Cozi app on my iPhone, so it’s always available to keep up with what’s scheduled and to make changes as needed.
Super Organizer
by HP Envy 4500 on 2021/03/08 16:59
My family has used Cozi for a number of years. I would personally be lost without it! I have a small but busy family and it keeps us all on track, going to the right place at the right time, and without missing important appointments! I think Cozi is a lifesaver, I love it and always recommend it to anyway I know, friend or stranger!
Simple & convenient
by SweenDawg23 on 2021/03/07 13:46
Simple and convenient way to communicate schedules amongst the household. Navigating the calendar isn’t always the easiest, wish there was a way to view by week or day and not just month. Zooming isn’t in isn’t very helpful. Overall pretty nice app
They are NOT open with the price of Gold subscription
by Mjg732004 on 2021/03/06 18:00
They try to get you to sign up multiple times on the apps and on the website, but they will not tell you how much you will be charged after the free trial. Even the we site has an entire page about the Gold subscription and a comparison between Gold and Free, but still will not tell us. Uninstalled and will not work with a company who seeks to trick people.
Good App could use some other features
by I DENT on 2021/03/05 16:44
It is a great app for reminders and calendar share. I wish it had a text feature that would allow reminders sent via text since there are some times I forget to look at the calendar. I would like to see a feature that would allow constant reminder until you put in a passcode for those very important things that you do not wanna forget instead of having to put reminders in the calendar numerous times..
Great App
by ziggym's mom on 2021/03/05 02:17
Easy application to use once we got use to it. The whole family is keeping track of times and places.

Shopping list
by cprosnapback on 2021/03/02 12:43
Great to have a mobile list for everyone in the family! Saves gas and time!
Not consistent
by Shelliott12 on 2021/02/28 21:54
Great on PC but mobile app needs A LOT of work. Home Screen only sporadically works and recipe tab often won’t load. Meal planner on PC is great but none existent on mobile. Good idea.

Heading?
by nwblossom on 2021/02/26 19:56
Whenever I put a number along with the item on the list, it becomes a heading. I can’t even uncheck it. So annoying.

If Cozi had text message alerts it would be better
by valentino1276 on 2021/02/26 00:45
Cozi use to have text message alerts that would remind you of an event. Yes they have regular notifications notice but once you swipe that away you kinda forget about it. When they had they text alerts I could do I quick glance at me text and see what’s alerting me and still have the text message notification which I check a lot more than I do going into the Cozi app. Just seems with the text message alerts the app is very useful, and with out it it’s just meh.
We like the app and very helpful. But needs the Bility to sort the list alphabetically as needed
by Sdtexas on 2021/02/24 23:57
To cluttered
Great App
by Joe R Allen on 2021/02/24 17:58
Have been using this for a little more than a year, I signed up for the gold membership. You can add items to the list using Alexa but not Google - that’s my only complaint, I wish you would integrate google assistant.
Sign in issues
by ecosystem for life on 2021/02/23 16:12
The cozi calendar app has been such a leap forward into the future of technology for my family. Before we had the old paper calendar on the fridge with everyone’s names and now we have it on all our devices. We don’t have to run home and look at the calendar to see what is next. The only issues I have is that every once and a while, I would get signed out of the app.
Great service
by Note fiend on 2021/02/23 05:13
Our family is organized thanks to Cozi.
Contacts
by mnruth on 2021/02/22 19:09
With contacts I would have given a 5 star rating. Contacts was a very important feature for our family.
The Best of Cozi
by Jazlyn Stafford on 2021/02/22 06:17
different thoughts let me know.😁
No longer love this app-
by GFB74 on 2021/02/21 16:30
For many years, my family and I have used this app. We loved it so much we paid the $30 annual subscription fee for the gold membership. We are an ‘Apple’ family and have been waiting six years for an Apple watch app. Many other free apps that are available offer this functionality. I have to assume at this point that Cozi has no intention of providing this feature. Then last year they removed the Journal feature. Then after this they removed the Contacts feature. I used all of these features and loved having it all in one app. At this point I have to consider Cozi a mediocre app at best. $30 a year is expensive for what they offer. Their app is not unique or special. There are many-many apps available that do more at a cheaper price than Cozi. I would expect that at $30 a year they should be adding features - not removing them.
The best!
by Thetoughlildawg on 2021/02/20 19:13
Really is such a great app. Helps me stay organized and and being able to share with my family makes it so much easier for shopping!
BORING, basic calendar view.
by deeezieeee on 2021/02/19 18:46
I upgraded to the “Goldi” version for $20 hoping that changing the theme would grant me a better view of my events on the month calendar view. The font of the events show up really small, thin, and only in black. Unable to customize.
Family calendar
by words-here on 2021/02/16 17:40
This app keeps us all connected.
It’s fine.
by rock pocket on 2021/02/16 01:49
We use this for our family. I like it enough. It is unbelievably frustrating that the monthly calendar view has Monday as the first day of the week but Sunday is the first day of the week shown in every place to add or edit an event. Just make the first day of the week the same throughout the app.
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.
Keep taking away features!
by CPERKINS93 on 2021/02/11 05:55
I have been Cozi gold for a few years and they keep taking away important features!! Birthday calendar and adding a schedule have been removed. But recently they took away due dates on tasks!! That is a deal killer for me so looking for a new app
Love this App
by Brandy77302 on 2021/02/08 16:22
I don’t know what my family would do without this app to keep us all informed of what the others are doing and when. With 2 extremely busy high school kids in several extracurricular activities without this it would be impossible to keep up with their schedules.
Using this app
by Kumbaya Hippie Chic on 2021/02/06 21:12
Makes my life more organized
Cozi is very helpful

Cozi organization cannot live w/out it
by 08182021 on 2021/02/05 14:13
I’m from a family of 4 adults 1 boy 7yr old. We hold very busy days & careers. With 2 teachers a nurse, a stay home mom & 3 pets. My husband is one of 5 Siblings & Im a one of 7 children. we are tri-lingual & all are pursuing degrees long life learners w/ demanding evening classes. Cozi holds all our appointments. All schedules, such as: play dates, bus drop off/pick ups, medical, apps., classes with demanding deadlines, family important events, veterinarian appointments, and our social lives. Cozi makes it easier to view our daily & longterm activities, at a glance so we can adjust dinner times, & driving schedules accordingly. When unexpected emergencies such as usual every day car problems or/and human nature weather conflicts arise just having cozi as assistance we can see where everyones is & who can help in times of need. Before Cozi our family schedules were very chaotic & frustrating. With Cozi we are less stress & happier less unexpected surprises and more manageable time together as a family with profesional efficiency, time to plan our vacations & venture future en devours. We love & live by Cozi and often share our secrete to manage our schedules with others.
Recipes for meal planning needs work
by R💆🌹 on 2021/02/05 01:02
Really struggling with getting the tried and true recipes to load on this app for meal planning. The url paste and share icon are not transferring the recipes the way this app says it should work.
Great organization but difficult to pair
by slgd2450 on 2021/02/04 14:13
I love the organization of the app, love how it sorts the family. Just extremely disappointed in how difficult it is to pair with iCal, which is what my husband uses because of work. If it would automatically sync this app would be beyond perfect!
Makes Me Sad How Much I Hate This App Now
by goodgirlgracie on 2021/02/03 18:41
I have been using this app for many, many years. My home consists of my 5 school age daughters(foster, adopted, special needs, court dates, family visitations), our dog, my husband and myself, and we truly came to rely on it with our very full schedule. I don’t know what they did in the last few months with updates but anytime I try to change a recurring appointment (whether it’s a one time change or completely being changed to new date or time) it either will not make the change or delete the one time change or the entire entry out of my calendar. Sadly I can’t depend on this app anymore and will be canceling my annual subscription.
Easter Sunday missing
by sl757702 on 2021/02/03 17:51
Please update, Easter Sunday missing from calendar
Useless to me without text reminders
by MommyDear3 on 2021/02/02 22:19
I was so excited over this app. However, it appears to only send event reminders via email. That is SO antiquated! With hundreds of junk emails cluttering our email accounts every day, we rarely check our email. We need an app like Cozi that will remind us with a text or similar notification on our phones so we don’t miss appointments.
Helps me get my life together!
by jmelea on 2021/02/02 15:18
This app helps organize my family’s hectic life. I highly recommend it!

The Kind of App I Won’t Admit I Need
by Goodestguy123 on 2021/02/02 03:52
This app was recommended to me when my wife was pregnant with our second child and we were struggling to keep up meal planning, appointments, and whatever else I’m forgetting the way we used to. I love the recipes function that allows me to import with a URL and in less than a minute, I have the recipe, an automatically generated grocery list, and my family calendar all updated (in the free version). There’s apparently more in the paid version that makes it worth the money, and I’ll upgrade soon, if I ever remember.
Reminder issue
by fidididkso on 2021/02/01 13:55
Wondering why I cannot get a reminder for events that I’m not involved with. For example when my husband takes my daughter to the dentist it does not give the option to remind me because he did not select me as attending that event. Is there a work around? This is necessary for me as a mom.
Perfect EXCEPT....
by Chinjillavanilla on 2021/01/30 16:11
We love it, and have used it to track our family for a couple years now. It would be perfect if only the list function gave you the option of subheadings of items as well as headings in making lists, and the option for bold/italics. I need this bad, so I can slide items up to categorize for top priorities. Please, Cozi, add this! It can’t be that hard! 😘😘😘😘

Still slowly learning my way around the app but I feel it will be a big asset. I enjoy getting my weekly schedule and I can carry an adjustable grocery list. Pretty cool.
AMAZING

I keep track on my time and it helps me
Customer Service
by West1285 on 2021/01/27 16:50
I am a Cozi gold member. I made a joint family email but can not recall what that. They have no customer service number to call on their website. So much for that priority customer service you pay for.
Problem iPhone6 to iPhone7
by ljudiev on 2021/01/25 01:56
After changing up to iPhone7 family members updates do not appear. Only problem with phone, didn’t happen with iPad update. Please help. We use the lists frequently. Before this it worked perfectly.
The indispensable app
by bmugracian on 2021/01/24 15:37
I’ve never written an app review, just don’t have the time or inclination. But this is the indispensable app. With a family of 5, kids ranging from 10 to 14, we are all super busy and the app helps us plan the week, gives us alerts, let’s us add to the common calendar. It would be difficult to function without this program and how many apps can you say that about?
Perfect for Single Mom on the go!!!
by Lonemama85 on 2021/01/24 14:54
I absolutely love this app- no more healing at the family when they don’t put stuff we run out of on the grocery list, or calling anyone on the parking lot of the grocery store if I leave the list at home. Everyone is synced and can add whatever they need- so convenient.
Great organizer
by findingbill on 2021/01/23 18:29
My wife and I were using the built in ‘list’ app on our iProducts but it crashed and then impossible to get it working again. Cozi is a fantastic replacement 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!
Used to be a 5 star app
by El Mariachi Malo on 2021/01/23 17:55
With the removal of many features in the past couple of months, this is dropped from five stars to three stars. Still works but a lot of the functionality that separated it Room the competitors is gone. I’ve been using Cozi for YEARS but I’m going to try to find something else.
Refresh
by sad $&/ on 2021/01/23 17:16
App fails to fresh for multiple users on the account.
Cozi
by Mike the salesman on 2021/01/23 02:29
I highly recommend this app. We can make appointments for everyone in the family, even the dog, and we can see what everyone is doing and where they are supposed to be. Wish the upgrade to gold was a little less $$
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.
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.
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!)
What a fabulous app!
by Mom Ellen on 2019/07/09 19:27
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Great App. Great features but is missing one thing...
by Shabbychic12 on 2019/08/19 01:43
This is an awesome app for a husband and wife to be able to stay connected with their busy schedules. HOWEVER, I feel that the Cozi app is missing one important thing that would make this app one of the top scheduling apps. There is absolutely no place or ability to upload any pictures to any of the “calendar events”. For example, I’d love to be able to upload a photo of a wedding invite or graduation invite to my calendar event in the app but I can’t. I literally have to type all of the info into the notes section if I want to keep it all in one place if the invite gets misplaced. A quick photo would be so convenient and be a HUGE PERK to this already awesome app. I hope that the creators of this app will consider this option in the next update.
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.
Very good, could be great!
by Holli** on 2017/12/21 17:38
I love so many things about this app! Shared calendar, shared family journal, user-friendly, and more. But my constructive criticism is this: when looking at the month view, one can’t see whose appointment it is (the type could be shown in their color, as a suggestion); when zoomed in on the month view, the font is so tiny, even zoomed in, that it’s hard to tap on the right appointment, in case of a need to edit - one must go to the weekly view and scroll to the appropriate day; and, finally, one must choose a time for the appointment with the scroll-through-the-times method, whereas apps like Sunrise allowed a quick-set method where one typed it in, saved it, and then one could adjust the time by drag and drop. Of course, keep in mind that I am PICKY, so with these being my only irks, and the rest being lovely, it’s a well-earned 4 stars!
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.
Cozi Gold is the best Organizer App ever!
by Too Darn Busy on 2019/12/24 16:03
Our family is so busy; this app helps us not only to keep track of our own individual dates & times, but we can also see what other family members are doing. The reminders are so helpful too. I use nearly all of the many features that Cozi offers. One of my favorites is the shopping list feature. Two or more people can shop from the same list at the same time, checking items off as they put them in their cart. The other person can see in “real time “ on their phones as each item is checked off. No duplication and shopping finished in half the time. We also use the “To Do” list function to keep us on track. There are so many things you can do with the Cozi App, which is free, but we think that the extra features in the Gold version is worth the money.
Used Cozi for years! Needs Siri & Apple Watch capability
by Hen W. on 2019/09/29 12:13
First off - I would like to say that Cozi has been my #1 productivity app for at least 7 years, if not longer. I use it Every Day & I feel like I have my entire life on there. I would like to request to the developers to update it for 1) Siri capability (Hey Siri, add milk to my Cozi Grocery list; Hey Siri, add Pick John up at 5pm to my Cozi calendar) and 2) Apple Watch comparability. Lastly, and this is just a pipe dream of mine: it would be great to be able to use digital stickers & embellishments to be able to decorate my journal, calendar, lists, etc. there is not a fully functional planner app out there that you can decorate/embellish. You would be cornering the market! I will be continuing to use Cozi - it is still the best app I have found (and I look yearly - mostly for the reasons I have added above). I’m sure I will be using Cozi for years to come - Thank you for keeping me organized!!!(
Holidays/Messaging/Recipes
by EllyMay808 on 2018/07/10 20:22
It’s missing Easter and April Fool’s Day. Those are pretty basic so that’s odd. Also, the app really needs some kind of comment or messaging feature similar to Picniic, FamCal, or several other family organizer apps. Until that’s added, I can’t bring myself to subscribe because so many of these other apps offer that feature for free. I really like the colored dot system for family members. And I want to love the recipe saving/importing system but it doesn’t seem to work very well. I just finished trying it on about 10 sites and it pulled from 4 (the other 6 it just gave me an error on), with one of those having pulled nutrition info into the ingredients section instead of the actual ingredients. So it really only worked 3 times out of 10. This is definitely not something I would pay for without some improvements. I do like the the concept enough that if the issues I listed were fixed, I most likely would gladly subscribe.

Yuck!
by LindylouB on 2021/04/09 20:59
I upgraded to the gold and it was a huge mistake. The monthly view is all crammed in super small. I don’t want to see two months at a time. I only want to see one. The colors that I love from the daily view do not move into the monthly. This could be the worst calendar I have ever used. A total waste of money!
Applications
by Goro Olia on 2021/04/09 19:12
I feel like I get very little with this app unless I purchase it yearly. I can’t even use a monthly view without paying for it.
Love this app
by Wsjohn on 2021/04/09 15:23
My Husband and I use it all the time!
Home Screen
by ItsYaGirlMandizzle on 2021/04/08 04:27
Would be 5 stars if the Home Screen worked. Just a blank screen whenever I open the app. All of the other tabs work, just not the Home Screen.
Super easy and convenient
by G Nourse on 2021/04/07 23:00
My wife and I have relied on this app for years now as a private stand-alone family planner. Great for knowing what everybody is doing and when from meetings to doctor appointments to work-out session to weekend plans. We keep our to-do lists and shopping lists on here as well. It’s great!
Cozi
by CLAREBZE on 2021/04/07 04:25
Every so often the app stops working. I have the premium version. Today, even though I am ‘online’, the app says I’m offline and I need to be online to edit a recurring a recurring event 😩 Update- got a quick reply from developers and the problem was fixed. I rely on COZI every day so it’s great to get a response and a fix in a timely basis. Thanks. Upping to 4stars
It’s great!
by Hannah4ster on 2021/04/07 03:05
My family uses it. It’s great for us all to stay on the same page easily!
Love it!
by rose1997 on 2021/04/06 14:39
I enjoy this app. It has helped me remember appointments and other things I forget about! I do have some feedback. I put in a school schedule for my kid, but I wish there were limitations so I can have an event repeat through a certain time period as well. That way, I don’t have to manually take out the school schedule for the summer. I also don’t understand why the repeated reminders have to be in the full version.
Cozi
by Beverly G on 2021/04/05 15:19
I love my cozi schedule and extras. Keeps me organized.
iOS app will not connect to internet
by impulsiveminimalist on 2021/04/04 15:31
I have reinstalled the app a few times but it keeps giving an error it can’t connect to the internet. The ads load fine though and every other app on my phone runs fine. It stopped working 13 days ago. Will update review when It starts working or when I get an update from support.
List feature is very glitchy today
by Dave sgj on 2021/04/04 14:55
We have loved Cozi up until today - the List feature is creating a duplicate entry for every item I try to input, and then it won’t let me delete just one of the items - it deletes both. It also has me continuously in offline mode, despite being on my home WiFi. I’ll give you a week or so to fix, then we’ll be deleting.
Newest version broke the app
by Fresno Papa on 2021/04/04 14:45
I’ve been a Cozi user for years. Most recent update now I keep getting errors “your families household data hasn’t finished downloading yet.” Desktop version works fine.
Useless - stuck in offline mode
by Jjjjjjjjjjjenjjjjjjjjj on 2021/04/04 14:42
Our family has been using this app for a few years and overall it’s pretty good, and I would have given 4 stars. Recently have an issue where it says I’m not connected to internet (which I am) and is stuck in offline mode. Seems to have started since I updated to iOS 14.4.2. None of the normal troubleshooting basics (turning WiFi mode off and on, hard closing the app, powering off phone, powering off cable modem and router, deleting and reinstalling the app) work.
Sooo many bugs!
by RandomChris1981 on 2021/04/04 13:37
This app concept is great. It does everything we want. But there are almost too many bugs for it to function properly. List items and entire categories disappear our double up for no reason. Huge blank sections appear on to do lists. If the bugs can be fixed, it would be a very useful tool.
Stopped working
by chrisjdennis on 2021/04/04 12:33
No longer updating. Duplicating inputs. Now doesn’t see any details. Worthless in current state
Had issues...and not sure why my review is removed
by rfrfgghjh on 2021/04/02 15:05
Needs some work on the iPhone. It worked great on my Android phone. I notice that with a lot of apps after switching. I assume that is because it is harder (so I have been told) to write/design apps for Apple. My major issue is while adding something to the list, say milk, as I am typing milk the keyboard will disappear while typing leaving only Mi instead of milk. Then, since the keyboard disappears while typing, I now click on one of the other items on the list causing that item to be opened to edit. Now I have to click back out of that and go reopen milk (or in my case Mi because I wasn't finished typing). Now, that only does this the first time when you open the app. And each time you reopen the app. If I continue adding items it does not repeat until I close the app and reopen it.
Love Cozi... but...
by Seegertjr on 2021/04/01 14:50
Have recommended Cozi to multiple families. Great sharing of calendar and to do lists which is very helpful. BUT... it needs a widget!! Please. :)
Easy to use!
by grandma5kids on 2021/03/31 23:54
Cozi easy to use and simple, even if you aren’t ap oriented
No Contacts in iOS App
by realitycheckinc on 2021/03/30 22:15
I paid for Cozi Gold so I could use shared contacts. They don’t show on the iOS app. Why?
Great
by rock koi boy on 2021/03/30 13:41
This is a really great and easy to use app that you family and friends could be pat of
Best app ever!

This app is perfect! I’ve enjoyed it for so many years!!!
I can’t change who is going to a event
by Scoffman21 on 2021/03/29 02:40
I just downloaded the app and I’m plugging in all of our family events and notice it won’t keep the person going on the event. It just says all for everyone going. Then I change an event to just two people going and it won’t show up who’s going with their color dot. What am I doing wrong?
Extremely Helpful
by Janiedoecms on 2021/03/28 12:44
This app helps my husband stay on the same page at all times. He can remind me of things and i can remind him of things. Super thankful for this app. 💙
Great for family and work life
by GG Flying😊 on 2021/03/28 12:41
The app is good and is helpful. Use to be able to include family in notifications but that feature seems to not work anymore, really miss that. If you get it must pay for the GOLD or all the ads and limitations makes it hard if you are not a Gold member, been using this Cozi and Fly Lady for 8 years😀
Great app
by keayrates33 on 2021/03/25 17:38
Love it!
The Best Out There
by angrykaye on 2021/03/25 17:06
I tried several apps before this one and I think it’s the best out there. It does the basics and does them well. It’s a bit tricky to click on calendar events to edit. I’d also like to see some extra spots for house or family info/information... measurements of dining table, size of curtains needed, clothing sizes etc. I’d like a permanent (staple) grocery list to refer to. I’ve mostly created that stuff within the list option given, but it can get a bit confusing. I’d also like an address book and probably some other things I’m not thinking of at the moment.
Ease of use
by fwrcmr on 2021/03/25 16:37
Very easy to use. I love it.
Grandparents are in the Loop
by Noble driver on 2021/03/25 14:42
An easy way to keep my parents in the loop on what’s going on with my family and children is loop them in to Cozi. They love getting to see what’s happening.
Very useful shared family list app
by Shawnh28 on 2021/03/25 13:43
We use this as our go-to grocery store list app shared over multiple devices. They all sync together and on the fly. Very good app and highly recommended!
Hi,
by Khurley34 on 2021/03/23 20:23
Love the app for my family calendar but hoping there is an Alexa integration as well as the ability to communicate and send reminders by mobile text (to family members) instead of by email. Thanks
Cozi is so cool!
by rosealie bob on 2021/03/23 14:26

by Sabumnim 8 on 2021/03/23 13:02
Well it was a noise and a problem steering. Took the car to the good ole boys. They found the answer to my question of what it might be? Then they fixed it and gave me a dang good price too! I am a happy customer. Been going here for 5+ years.
Pretty good
by Srmapple on 2021/03/21 20:40
So far, so good! It’s easy and practical. I like that each family member can have calendar items and lists with the gold membership. I like its simplicity. Other organizers are illogical.
Reminders
by RichieBock13 on 2021/03/21 14:05
Would like to have daily morning reminders
It’s awesome!
by AlwaysTiredOnTheMornings on 2021/03/21 06:41
My family uses it to manage appointments so that we all know what is happening for the week before we schedule anything else. It has helped not to overlap appointments especially if they are for my schooling
Love this app
by Pattimelt1222 on 2021/03/19 21:14
I was using my notes app to put everything in and it was very convenient but I do like this better. Very handy app. Love it!!

Awesome App
by Bakeshot on 2021/03/17 22:23
Easiest way to keep up with events I’ve seen. Really works for me. I have shared with friends.
Not too user friendly
by Virgorowan on 2021/03/17 16:21
Cant edit what you have scheduled. Also you can seeit as a list
Hard to view
by Mom5179 on 2021/03/15 14:26
Note: you don't get the month view until you pay. The month view doesn't have lines between the days so it is hard to see at a glance. Everything is black so you can't see which things are for which people. Disappointed.
Great schedule app
by D.E.DeG on 2021/03/15 14:11
We have been using this app for over 3 yrs. It is very easy to use and really helps tracking everyone’s schedule. This has eliminated over lapping schedules and notifies you of changes/ new appointments. We really like this app.
A useful tool
by Schmo965 on 2021/03/15 05:17
I use Cozi to share a calendar with my wife. It’s a really good app. I was frustrated that half the time I put something I had to go back in and edit because it randomly defaulted to a day or two in the past. But then the developer told me to input events in the calendar view rather than the daily view (agenda) and it works like a charm.
It’s gotten worse over the years
by Bulljan8285 on 2021/03/13 07:58
I’ve used Cozi for several years now. I keep waiting for them to add new features and make the current ones better but the opposite has happened. Until recently it had a helpful contacts feature. My whole family could look up names and addresses right on Cozi without having to ask me every time. I used it to download addresses for my Christmas cards too. They eliminated this feature recently without even asking for input from users. They promised new features but I’m still waiting. I do like the calendar and lists features but an undo feature is desperately needed. It shouldn’t be so clunky after so many years.
Pretty good
by Zammalamba on 2021/03/12 03:12
Pretty good. Please add support for dark mode.
Useful lists app
by Wes R on 2021/03/12 01:31
This app is great for my grocery list, Costco list, etc., because the whole family can add their own things instead of asking me to add it.
Sad
by quancuvo on 2021/03/10 19:44
I used to adore this app, even got my friends hooked on it. But now you took away my ability to create schedules and it stinks. That was pretty low. I have used this app for EIGHT YEARS and now you put schedules behind the paywall. Thanks for nothing.
Cozi is my Go To
by GiveBetterHelp on 2021/03/09 18:36
I have the Cozi app on my iPhone, so it’s always available to keep up with what’s scheduled and to make changes as needed.
Super Organizer
by HP Envy 4500 on 2021/03/08 16:59
My family has used Cozi for a number of years. I would personally be lost without it! I have a small but busy family and it keeps us all on track, going to the right place at the right time, and without missing important appointments! I think Cozi is a lifesaver, I love it and always recommend it to anyway I know, friend or stranger!
Simple & convenient
by SweenDawg23 on 2021/03/07 13:46
Simple and convenient way to communicate schedules amongst the household. Navigating the calendar isn’t always the easiest, wish there was a way to view by week or day and not just month. Zooming isn’t in isn’t very helpful. Overall pretty nice app
They are NOT open with the price of Gold subscription
by Mjg732004 on 2021/03/06 18:00
They try to get you to sign up multiple times on the apps and on the website, but they will not tell you how much you will be charged after the free trial. Even the we site has an entire page about the Gold subscription and a comparison between Gold and Free, but still will not tell us. Uninstalled and will not work with a company who seeks to trick people.
Good App could use some other features
by I DENT on 2021/03/05 16:44
It is a great app for reminders and calendar share. I wish it had a text feature that would allow reminders sent via text since there are some times I forget to look at the calendar. I would like to see a feature that would allow constant reminder until you put in a passcode for those very important things that you do not wanna forget instead of having to put reminders in the calendar numerous times..
Great App
by ziggym's mom on 2021/03/05 02:17
Easy application to use once we got use to it. The whole family is keeping track of times and places.

Great to have a mobile list for everyone in the family! Saves gas and time!
Not consistent
by Shelliott12 on 2021/02/28 21:54
Great on PC but mobile app needs A LOT of work. Home Screen only sporadically works and recipe tab often won’t load. Meal planner on PC is great but none existent on mobile. Good idea.

Heading?

If Cozi had text message alerts it would be better
by valentino1276 on 2021/02/26 00:45
Cozi use to have text message alerts that would remind you of an event. Yes they have regular notifications notice but once you swipe that away you kinda forget about it. When they had they text alerts I could do I quick glance at me text and see what’s alerting me and still have the text message notification which I check a lot more than I do going into the Cozi app. Just seems with the text message alerts the app is very useful, and with out it it’s just meh.
We like the app and very helpful. But needs the Bility to sort the list alphabetically as needed
by Sdtexas on 2021/02/24 23:57
To cluttered
Great App
by Joe R Allen on 2021/02/24 17:58
Have been using this for a little more than a year, I signed up for the gold membership. You can add items to the list using Alexa but not Google - that’s my only complaint, I wish you would integrate google assistant.
Sign in issues
by ecosystem for life on 2021/02/23 16:12
The cozi calendar app has been such a leap forward into the future of technology for my family. Before we had the old paper calendar on the fridge with everyone’s names and now we have it on all our devices. We don’t have to run home and look at the calendar to see what is next. The only issues I have is that every once and a while, I would get signed out of the app.
Great service
by Note fiend on 2021/02/23 05:13
Our family is organized thanks to Cozi.
Contacts
by mnruth on 2021/02/22 19:09
With contacts I would have given a 5 star rating. Contacts was a very important feature for our family.
The Best of Cozi
by Jazlyn Stafford on 2021/02/22 06:17
different thoughts let me know.😁
No longer love this app-
by GFB74 on 2021/02/21 16:30
For many years, my family and I have used this app. We loved it so much we paid the $30 annual subscription fee for the gold membership. We are an ‘Apple’ family and have been waiting six years for an Apple watch app. Many other free apps that are available offer this functionality. I have to assume at this point that Cozi has no intention of providing this feature. Then last year they removed the Journal feature. Then after this they removed the Contacts feature. I used all of these features and loved having it all in one app. At this point I have to consider Cozi a mediocre app at best. $30 a year is expensive for what they offer. Their app is not unique or special. There are many-many apps available that do more at a cheaper price than Cozi. I would expect that at $30 a year they should be adding features - not removing them.
The best!
by Thetoughlildawg on 2021/02/20 19:13
Really is such a great app. Helps me stay organized and and being able to share with my family makes it so much easier for shopping!
BORING, basic calendar view.
by deeezieeee on 2021/02/19 18:46
I upgraded to the “Goldi” version for $20 hoping that changing the theme would grant me a better view of my events on the month calendar view. The font of the events show up really small, thin, and only in black. Unable to customize.
Family calendar
by words-here on 2021/02/16 17:40
This app keeps us all connected.
It’s fine.
by rock pocket on 2021/02/16 01:49
We use this for our family. I like it enough. It is unbelievably frustrating that the monthly calendar view has Monday as the first day of the week but Sunday is the first day of the week shown in every place to add or edit an event. Just make the first day of the week the same throughout the app.
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.
Keep taking away features!
by CPERKINS93 on 2021/02/11 05:55
I have been Cozi gold for a few years and they keep taking away important features!! Birthday calendar and adding a schedule have been removed. But recently they took away due dates on tasks!! That is a deal killer for me so looking for a new app
Love this App
by Brandy77302 on 2021/02/08 16:22
I don’t know what my family would do without this app to keep us all informed of what the others are doing and when. With 2 extremely busy high school kids in several extracurricular activities without this it would be impossible to keep up with their schedules.

Cozi organization cannot live w/out it
by 08182021 on 2021/02/05 14:13
I’m from a family of 4 adults 1 boy 7yr old. We hold very busy days & careers. With 2 teachers a nurse, a stay home mom & 3 pets. My husband is one of 5 Siblings & Im a one of 7 children. we are tri-lingual & all are pursuing degrees long life learners w/ demanding evening classes. Cozi holds all our appointments. All schedules, such as: play dates, bus drop off/pick ups, medical, apps., classes with demanding deadlines, family important events, veterinarian appointments, and our social lives. Cozi makes it easier to view our daily & longterm activities, at a glance so we can adjust dinner times, & driving schedules accordingly. When unexpected emergencies such as usual every day car problems or/and human nature weather conflicts arise just having cozi as assistance we can see where everyones is & who can help in times of need. Before Cozi our family schedules were very chaotic & frustrating. With Cozi we are less stress & happier less unexpected surprises and more manageable time together as a family with profesional efficiency, time to plan our vacations & venture future en devours. We love & live by Cozi and often share our secrete to manage our schedules with others.
Recipes for meal planning needs work
by R💆🌹 on 2021/02/05 01:02
Really struggling with getting the tried and true recipes to load on this app for meal planning. The url paste and share icon are not transferring the recipes the way this app says it should work.
Great organization but difficult to pair
by slgd2450 on 2021/02/04 14:13
I love the organization of the app, love how it sorts the family. Just extremely disappointed in how difficult it is to pair with iCal, which is what my husband uses because of work. If it would automatically sync this app would be beyond perfect!
Makes Me Sad How Much I Hate This App Now
by goodgirlgracie on 2021/02/03 18:41
I have been using this app for many, many years. My home consists of my 5 school age daughters(foster, adopted, special needs, court dates, family visitations), our dog, my husband and myself, and we truly came to rely on it with our very full schedule. I don’t know what they did in the last few months with updates but anytime I try to change a recurring appointment (whether it’s a one time change or completely being changed to new date or time) it either will not make the change or delete the one time change or the entire entry out of my calendar. Sadly I can’t depend on this app anymore and will be canceling my annual subscription.
Easter Sunday missing
by sl757702 on 2021/02/03 17:51
Please update, Easter Sunday missing from calendar
Useless to me without text reminders
by MommyDear3 on 2021/02/02 22:19
I was so excited over this app. However, it appears to only send event reminders via email. That is SO antiquated! With hundreds of junk emails cluttering our email accounts every day, we rarely check our email. We need an app like Cozi that will remind us with a text or similar notification on our phones so we don’t miss appointments.
Helps me get my life together!
by jmelea on 2021/02/02 15:18
This app helps organize my family’s hectic life. I highly recommend it!
Easy and the best!

The Kind of App I Won’t Admit I Need
by Goodestguy123 on 2021/02/02 03:52
This app was recommended to me when my wife was pregnant with our second child and we were struggling to keep up meal planning, appointments, and whatever else I’m forgetting the way we used to. I love the recipes function that allows me to import with a URL and in less than a minute, I have the recipe, an automatically generated grocery list, and my family calendar all updated (in the free version). There’s apparently more in the paid version that makes it worth the money, and I’ll upgrade soon, if I ever remember.
Reminder issue
by fidididkso on 2021/02/01 13:55
Wondering why I cannot get a reminder for events that I’m not involved with. For example when my husband takes my daughter to the dentist it does not give the option to remind me because he did not select me as attending that event. Is there a work around? This is necessary for me as a mom.
Perfect EXCEPT....
by Chinjillavanilla on 2021/01/30 16:11
We love it, and have used it to track our family for a couple years now. It would be perfect if only the list function gave you the option of subheadings of items as well as headings in making lists, and the option for bold/italics. I need this bad, so I can slide items up to categorize for top priorities. Please, Cozi, add this! It can’t be that hard! 😘😘😘😘
Joe Keenan
by Air3000 and 1 on 2021/01/29 22:11
Still slowly learning my way around the app but I feel it will be a big asset. I enjoy getting my weekly schedule and I can carry an adjustable grocery list. Pretty cool.
AMAZING

Customer Service
by West1285 on 2021/01/27 16:50
I am a Cozi gold member. I made a joint family email but can not recall what that. They have no customer service number to call on their website. So much for that priority customer service you pay for.
Problem iPhone6 to iPhone7
by ljudiev on 2021/01/25 01:56
After changing up to iPhone7 family members updates do not appear. Only problem with phone, didn’t happen with iPad update. Please help. We use the lists frequently. Before this it worked perfectly.
The indispensable app
by bmugracian on 2021/01/24 15:37
I’ve never written an app review, just don’t have the time or inclination. But this is the indispensable app. With a family of 5, kids ranging from 10 to 14, we are all super busy and the app helps us plan the week, gives us alerts, let’s us add to the common calendar. It would be difficult to function without this program and how many apps can you say that about?
Perfect for Single Mom on the go!!!

I absolutely love this app- no more healing at the family when they don’t put stuff we run out of on the grocery list, or calling anyone on the parking lot of the grocery store if I leave the list at home. Everyone is synced and can add whatever they need- so convenient.
Great organizer

My wife and I were using the built in ‘list’ app on our iProducts but it crashed and then impossible to get it working again. Cozi is a fantastic replacement 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!
Used to be a 5 star app
by El Mariachi Malo on 2021/01/23 17:55
With the removal of many features in the past couple of months, this is dropped from five stars to three stars. Still works but a lot of the functionality that separated it Room the competitors is gone. I’ve been using Cozi for YEARS but I’m going to try to find something else.
Refresh

I highly recommend this app. We can make appointments for everyone in the family, even the dog, and we can see what everyone is doing and where they are supposed to be. Wish the upgrade to gold was a little less $$
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.
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.
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!)
What a fabulous app!
by Mom Ellen on 2019/07/09 19:27
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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+

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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Great App. Great features but is missing one thing...
by Shabbychic12 on 2019/08/19 01:43
This is an awesome app for a husband and wife to be able to stay connected with their busy schedules. HOWEVER, I feel that the Cozi app is missing one important thing that would make this app one of the top scheduling apps. There is absolutely no place or ability to upload any pictures to any of the “calendar events”. For example, I’d love to be able to upload a photo of a wedding invite or graduation invite to my calendar event in the app but I can’t. I literally have to type all of the info into the notes section if I want to keep it all in one place if the invite gets misplaced. A quick photo would be so convenient and be a HUGE PERK to this already awesome app. I hope that the creators of this app will consider this option in the next update.
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.
Very good, could be great!
by Holli** on 2017/12/21 17:38
I love so many things about this app! Shared calendar, shared family journal, user-friendly, and more. But my constructive criticism is this: when looking at the month view, one can’t see whose appointment it is (the type could be shown in their color, as a suggestion); when zoomed in on the month view, the font is so tiny, even zoomed in, that it’s hard to tap on the right appointment, in case of a need to edit - one must go to the weekly view and scroll to the appropriate day; and, finally, one must choose a time for the appointment with the scroll-through-the-times method, whereas apps like Sunrise allowed a quick-set method where one typed it in, saved it, and then one could adjust the time by drag and drop. Of course, keep in mind that I am PICKY, so with these being my only irks, and the rest being lovely, it’s a well-earned 4 stars!
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.
Cozi Gold is the best Organizer App ever!
by Too Darn Busy on 2019/12/24 16:03
Our family is so busy; this app helps us not only to keep track of our own individual dates & times, but we can also see what other family members are doing. The reminders are so helpful too. I use nearly all of the many features that Cozi offers. One of my favorites is the shopping list feature. Two or more people can shop from the same list at the same time, checking items off as they put them in their cart. The other person can see in “real time “ on their phones as each item is checked off. No duplication and shopping finished in half the time. We also use the “To Do” list function to keep us on track. There are so many things you can do with the Cozi App, which is free, but we think that the extra features in the Gold version is worth the money.
Used Cozi for years! Needs Siri & Apple Watch capability
by Hen W. on 2019/09/29 12:13
First off - I would like to say that Cozi has been my #1 productivity app for at least 7 years, if not longer. I use it Every Day & I feel like I have my entire life on there. I would like to request to the developers to update it for 1) Siri capability (Hey Siri, add milk to my Cozi Grocery list; Hey Siri, add Pick John up at 5pm to my Cozi calendar) and 2) Apple Watch comparability. Lastly, and this is just a pipe dream of mine: it would be great to be able to use digital stickers & embellishments to be able to decorate my journal, calendar, lists, etc. there is not a fully functional planner app out there that you can decorate/embellish. You would be cornering the market! I will be continuing to use Cozi - it is still the best app I have found (and I look yearly - mostly for the reasons I have added above). I’m sure I will be using Cozi for years to come - Thank you for keeping me organized!!!(
Holidays/Messaging/Recipes
by EllyMay808 on 2018/07/10 20:22
It’s missing Easter and April Fool’s Day. Those are pretty basic so that’s odd. Also, the app really needs some kind of comment or messaging feature similar to Picniic, FamCal, or several other family organizer apps. Until that’s added, I can’t bring myself to subscribe because so many of these other apps offer that feature for free. I really like the colored dot system for family members. And I want to love the recipe saving/importing system but it doesn’t seem to work very well. I just finished trying it on about 10 sites and it pulled from 4 (the other 6 it just gave me an error on), with one of those having pulled nutrition info into the ingredients section instead of the actual ingredients. So it really only worked 3 times out of 10. This is definitely not something I would pay for without some improvements. I do like the the concept enough that if the issues I listed were fixed, I most likely would gladly subscribe.
