Description

NOTE: THERE IS A KNOWN PROBLEM ON iPhone with iOS8 (iPad appears to work). PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD UNTIL WE SUBMIT A FIX.

The only App you will want the kids playing at the dinner table.

Great app for kids and the whole family during the holidays.

Sometimes parents need a creative push to get the ideas flowing. "A Family Matters" has provided that push for thousands of families and we hope it can do the same for yours. Sure you know how to talk with your children, but every now and then a new idea for engaging them can be fun and even enlightening.

We recommend using it for 5-15 minutes and alternating whose turn it is to answer a question or play an activity. This seems to get the best results. Wait for a table at a restaurant is our favorite time to use it, but car trips and holidays with the grandparents come in a close second.

If you enjoy this please leave us a review! 5-star ratings motivate us to work on even more modules.

"Parents wanting a rich and fun experience with their children should try A Family Matters, especially when traveling! It is not a video game - just good family fun."

Selected for Apple's What's Hot list for two weeks straight and reached #2 app in Travel.

"Your app was a lifesaver this weekend. My mother brought me and the kids

to some play. We got there an hour early and they wouldn't seat us until 20 minutes before. The four of us had a ball playing Family Matters."

FUN, BETTER QUALITY FAMILY COMMUNICATION

- Look forward to waiting for your food in a restaurant with your kids.

- Calm and distract a nervous child in the doctor's office or when flying.

- Bond and feel closer to your children.

"It’s a fantastic idea and a great way to use the iPhone as a positive tool for families. " The iPhone Mom

We built this application to help us parent more effectively. We were tired of family dinners where the conversation consisted of "How was your day?"... "fine".

SO WHAT IS THIS APP?

This is a tool to help you communicate more effectively with your children. What A Family Matters(tm) gives you is a set of questions and conversation starting activities designed to help you communicate more effectively with your children. We found it leads to more and deeper conversations with our kids and we think it could do the same for you.

Some of the questions and activities are simple - these help children build confidence.

Some are deeper and probing.

There are close to a thousand questions and activities designed to engage all family members of all ages.

Unlike other applications that quiz or provide facts, this tool is venue-driven. This means the activities are geared toward your location. We currently cover common places you may engage in conversation or need to pass the time such as restaurants, waiting rooms, airports and planes or on long road trips. Of course there is a general category for use around the dinner table or practically anywhere you have a few minutes to spend together.

4/5 stars

Fun even for adults

:
My hubby and I were on a long road trip and had fun with this game. Not everything was applicable, but we still had fun. After a while you run out of things to talk about...this made our drive seem shorter.

5/5 stars

Even better

:
This continues to be a great experience for our family.

I can't understand why people give this a bad review for not being a game? It's in the Travel category and clearly is not a game, it's a great way for our family to enjoy our time together.

Thank you and please keep it up!

5/5 stars

Fun for family

:
This has given my family a lot of enjoyment. Thank you.

I love the new version. I can't believe how many great ideas in here. Of course these are only conversation starters but they have really encouraged our kids to talk to us when they would normally want to be playing video games. It really is the only App we will allow at the dinner table.
