    Although you do monthly shopping only once per month, when you have over 20 items to buy, you can be sure you'll forget that 1 thing like sugar or salt. You can create interactive shopping lists inside a family calendar and have members add items to the list.

    When it's 7:40 AM and you're already 10 minutes late getting out the door, you certainly don't want to be panicking about what to stick in your kid's lunch box for the day. Get organized with a meal plan of healthy recipes that you can prepare for the whole 5 day week on Sunday night.

    Organizing a bigger birthday party is a real challenge and you need help from other family members. What the family-oriented calendar does is allows you to plan together and ensure the birthday cake is on the table on time.

    When you have twins or multiples, you'll find your family size double in no time, which can make planning tricky. You can keep everything in your life organized, including your grocery list and your calendar, from when your little ones are 3 months old all the way through 18 years old.

    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.

    I have the basic with this calendar but it works great for my whole family. I'm so glad my oldest son told me about it. He used it for years & really liked it. I am currently sharing this calendar with 5 other family members & all of us really like it. Also with the basic calendar you get lists that you can share, example grocery list for a party. We just decide who is getting what, so nobody forgets what they are supposed to purchase. That way nothing is forgotten.
  • What a fabulous app! Aug 18, 2021

    By Mom Ellen
    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!!!
  • Still love it after 4+ years of use Dec 29, 2019

    By mommacrocks
    We started using the Cozi when our two oldest kids were in high school. Two varsity athletes and athletic club participants, a child in elementary school, and two parents who travel for work made for a daunting job of keeping track of all the commitments. Our bigs are now in college, youngest is just about to enter middle school and we both still travel for work. This app is perfect for any family with a ton of balls to juggle. Everyone (including the pets) are part of our group. We can keep track of every aspect we need to know for scheduling appointments, work trips, meals...literally everything. Before my husband or I agree to a meeting out of town, we can make sure no conflicts exist with our youngest child (someone is always home for her.) The notifications help keep everyone up to date on the latest changes immediately. Meal planning is simple as we can decide what kinds of meals will work best on any given day ( both of us out all day, crockpot meal; after school lessons, something quick ; just two for dinner, portion adjustment) Plus, having the meal plan allows whoever is home first to get dinner started since the recipe is also available in the app. Running to the store? Grocery list of needed items is available to confirm we have everything we need. Anything we do is in the Cozi, it is a great tool. It keeps us on track and running smoothly.

    BEST CALENDAR FOR MY ADHD brain. Shopping lists are handy. Color coding my kids brings order to the chaos of single parenting. Worth the small annual cost to have 3 reminders for important appointments. I set 18 hours, 2 hours, and 30 minutes. Keeps me on track. ❤ Cozi!!
  • Ok for basic stuff Sep 24, 2017

    By HorribleSpider
    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).

  • Cozy is AWESOME Jul 7, 2017

    By Fun rode
    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🌽

    For years this has been and continues to be PERFECT for my family's needs; we share schedules, grocery shopping lists, and recipes! All for free! My kids even used during college to list their class times so I knew when NOT to call. And it's perfect for shopping as family can update anytime, even while I'm at the commissary! And you can create subcategories by typing in CAPS! I have no complaints after almost 10 years! NO, I wasn't paid and seldom write reviews. This one is earned.
  • Best calendar/organizing app I've found Jun 30, 2017

    By weareramsey
    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!)
  • Not what I expected Jul 27, 2021

    By R0tt0napples
    This calendar does it work well with other calendars. It doesn’t exchange with other calendars well it’s all read only. Doesn’t work with Alexa. You can’t do much as far as settings when your not on a desktop. The “month view” is not color coded. It’s the most basic view and is hard to read. This could be so great but I feel like it was a waste of money. There’s really NO REASON to buy the subscription. The free version is essentially the same since the month view is lacking in every way. That’s the only thing you get with upgrade. I will not buy again next year. Thanks for the reply. I’ve already been in contact with Cozi. They have given me the same links. The information is available it simply isn’t helpful. It does nothing with Alexa except lists which, for all the “works with Alexa” excitement I found, is really misleading. It should say “only works with lists in Alexa” I expect a more IFTTT approach with a family calendar. I expected to pay the premium and have lots of extras. Instead, I paid and found out it’s useless with Alexa and it’s exactly the same as I was for free. I’ll know better next year. It’s unfortunate because it COULD be a really valuable tool if it did more. And add some vegetarian and vegan recipes please. The one thing I can say, is you have great people working for you. They genuinely want to help. They are all very courteous and kind.

    Similar to other users, the concept is great and most of it works. However my shopping list widgets do not update and will only show the new information if I remove the widget and create a new one. That is not helpful or practical and hence the reason for 2 stars.
  • Not as good as I thought it was Jun 26, 2017

    By Ipodallthetime
    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.
  • Oct 7, 2021

    By Hannah Horstman
    I purchased a full year of the app. I've experienced lots of glitches- items getting deleted, full lists getting deleted, so I reached out asking for a refund of the remaining 8 months left in my subscription. Not only did customer service basically say my glitches were user error, they said they don't do prorated refunds and just canceled my subscription without confirming that should be the next step. 10/10 would not recommend.
  • Gold scam alert!! May 3, 2021

    By Jimkcec
    I have asked for help now for over six months!! 2 years ago all was well in the family plan I thought it would be a neat gift for the family so I added the gold and my account was charged for several years. My family and myself never got access as it was only placed on my email and not the family!! Once I realized this I was eliminated from the family plan and now almost a year of email cannot get back to see the family plan. This with covid and 2 daughter graduating from high school has made COZI useless to me and not worth the money for gold or aggravation. I would highly not recommend this software as they scam you into going Gold then lock you out of the account and the only support is through email and very slow! I am not the only one that has experienced this as their frequently asked questions states if this occurs get in touch with customer service! I would highly advise seeking better business bureau help and or cancelling your card as they do not respond in a timely manner! The message I got was they see my plan and that I have paid for the service but they never attached it to the family plan and it has never worked!! Beware of the scam!!
  • Using for years and my rating keeps going down Feb 15, 2021

    By TheresaEstrada
    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.
  • Still dislike Jun 28, 2018

    By Mandapan
    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.
  • 2+ Jul 15, 2020

    By Angme37
    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.
  • Don’t buy Gold; terrible design Jan 20, 2020

    By D.Alexarnett
    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.
  • TRIAL PERIOD OF COZI GOLD Jan 24, 2018

    By Dgy3gt
    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?

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🌽

    For years this has been and continues to be PERFECT for my family's needs; we share schedules, grocery shopping lists, and recipes! All for free! My kids even used during college to list their class times so I knew when NOT to call. And it's perfect for shopping as family can update anytime, even while I'm at the commissary! And you can create subcategories by typing in CAPS! I have no complaints after almost 10 years! NO, I wasn't paid and seldom write reviews. This one is earned.
  • Best calendar/organizing app I've found Jun 30, 2017

    By weareramsey
    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!)

    It's great to set up various shopping lists that you can add to through the week - and share those same lists with family members. So, whoever is out, can pick up whatever we need and remove it from the list. Very efficient.
  • Highly recommend for busy families! Mar 9, 2020

    By Wegots2kids
    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.
  • Still love it after 4+ years of use Dec 29, 2019

    By mommacrocks
    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! Oct 8, 2017

    By Sky_Blue_Eyes
    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.

    Good, but has room for improvement. First, the widgets are a bit buggy and often don't refresh when changes have been made in the app or by someone else. The list experience can be frustrating on occassion when it insist on certain text being a header (eg, an item in all caps like abreviations). But, overall, good app for Cozi management. As for the service, it has been a lifesaver for our family. We use it daily for any of our family collaboration needs. Recommend giving it a try.
  • Works great most of the time Sep 7, 2021

    By Christytx52
    My whole family uses the app and our teenage son adds his groceries and Christmas wish list to it. I put his chores on it. We use the to-do lists extensively. The problem is that periodically (once a month) one of us will be adding and item either to a shopping list or to-do list, it looks like it added, then all of sudden we get a message with a list of items that cozi couldn’t add (even though it already did - temporarily at least). Not sure if this is because Cozi doesn’t allow you to enter items while you are offline and then sync up later or what the deal is. So you have to pay close attention to the message to know what to type in again. Super annoying. Also, frequently I’ll be typing and I’m part way through a word and the item just closes when I’m part way through. I’ll start typing “Milk” but only get the “M” and the “i” entered and the item closes. So I have “Mi” on my list. It does that a lot. You have to reopen the item and finish typing. Other than those two items, though, it works pretty well for our family. The updates are in near real time - I can see my husband check off items while he’s shopping. And the rest of the app is stable. It does what we need it to do for the most part.
  • PLEASE UPDATE Nov 17, 2021

    By nickname102490
    I found this app in a parent magazine and I do Not love it but i do like it.. One of the problems that I have is that I usually set two reminders for the appointments on my calendar and I usually don’t get the reminders I went to my settings in my phone to allow notifications and I still really don’t get them. One of the features that I love is the shopping my fiancé is not good at remembering things so when he does shopping it’s easy for me to add stuff to my grocery list and make it convenient with him keeping up with items that we need for the household. Things that I think would be great is if it was an option to do cell phone notifications which will be helpful as well. Admin options will be good as well especially when you have teenagers so it does not give them the ability to be able to delete things and you can control what they have access to. The last thing I have an issue with is the fact that I do not see the option to contact you guys and I feel like that’s kind of unfair especially due to the fact that I spent money on your app and I can’t even communicate with the staff members from this app Especially if i do become unsatisfied with the app how would i go about getting a refund.

    Four stars because the calendar apparently glitches less if you pay for the app. I'm not brave enough to throw money at it to find out. Love the ability to give access to others; to add to the calendar/shopping lists/etc, and that it'll notify the appropriate people listed for an event
  • Great Family Calendar! The Lists Need Some Work... Dec 22, 2018

    By K8e L8y
    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!

    Love this calendar! I use it every day. When my kids were younger and doing sports and other after school activities it helped me keep everything straight. Would love an update that adds more background choices though! I'm a person who likes to change things up based on the week and my mood! If there were updates with new backgrounds from time to time I would give it 5 stars.
  • It’s awesome except for a couple small things Feb 4, 2019

    By TheCrazyBernards
    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.

    I tried several other apps. The other apps either had list or calendar. Also they would not link to each of my devices. Cozi is on my phone, tablet and computer. I am a list and schedule kind of person especially at work. I am trying to bring some of that organizational tools at home. It has helped me stay on task to get the have to do tasks done so I can do the things I want to do. The thing would be cool is if I could link this with the calendar on my phone.
  • Ok for basic stuff Sep 24, 2017

    By HorribleSpider
    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).
  • Oct 13, 2021

    By KRISTEN L
    It is a basic shared calendar. It has alert features, but have to be pushed to every member identically. But the location does not link to maps. And all events have to be in put in by hand, it does not sync automatically with any Google calendar, etc. I don't know if the paid version might work better. I would definitely prefer a month view which is included in that.

    Been using it for a few months now. Not the worst especially for a collab app w/ Calendar and Task/Shopping List. I came from Out of Milk app that doesn't have a calendar nor recipe function however it the shopping/task list is much more functional and customizable such sub categories and adding pricing to items and I'd wish it just had a few more features similar to Out of Milk which is why I'd only gets 3 stars from me cuz I don't use it as much but my S.O says they would give it four.

    By Crissy Juhl
    I like the app but unfortunately it does not send me notification reminders that I set. For example, I have all my families birthdays listed with reminders for 1 week and 1 day out. I might get the 1 day but seldom 1 week. I can't see a pattern. Its hit and miss.
  • Your kids can DELETE EVERYTHING in your "family calendar" Jul 26, 2017

    By Wifid143
    What a nightmare! You carefully schedule appointments, doctors, outings. Then one day you look up and a LOT OF THINGS you KNOW you put on the calendar are GONE! Yes, COZI has NO admin authority, so go ahead and schedule your life away. Then have your 10 year old open his calendar, leave the phone open an inadvertantly (or not) DELETE calendared events! This has been a nightmare resulting in TWO important events being deleted, info lost, and NO WAY TO RECOVER> When it first happened I contacted them and their reply was "oh yeah, we dont have a solution for that, anyone using the app can freely or mistakenly delete events" Now, it has happened a second time on a very serious appointment scheduled months in advance, and I am beyond furious. This is a FAMILY calendar. When it is only as strong as a 10 year olds fat finger mistake, its USELESS. They need to add an admin 4 # password to allow an event to be deleted. Trust me folks, the advantages quickly become a NIGHTMARE when your kid decides to muck around in the app thats supposed to bring families together. I am on the hunt for something new. We cant afford another screwup in this app that has no parental controls over deletions! They know about it and havent fixed it.
  • Nice for families but... Oct 30, 2018

    By Annalynne
    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.
  • Great with an annoying flaw Nov 5, 2019

    By Frendlycat
    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.
  • Month Calendar View Apr 7, 2019

    By Popples987
    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.
  • Used Cozi for years! Needs Siri & Apple Watch capability Sep 29, 2019

    By Hen W.
    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!!!(
  • It’s good but could be way better. Dec 14, 2017

    By Klisabelle922
    PRO: I like the daily view with the color-coded people on it. I like folks receiving email reminders. I like the lists feature. I do like this app and although my cons section below is huge, it’s more like constructive criticism than con. CON: I Wish monthly view would show basically everything the weekly view has. Not sure you can input something further out past 4-6 months. I want to enter a July date for reunion and a September date for a wedding but can’t (its December 2017) now. I also wish there was a way to copy spouse on the week’s schedule without adding his dot to the appointments. The Home page has to go. It’s distracting. Maybe put that stuff on a different page/tab entitled Cozi News or Other. It be nice to open up Cozi and be right at the calendar immediately. It IS a calendar app. Lastly, it would be great if your icon had a calendar on it

    Similar to other users, the concept is great and most of it works. However my shopping list widgets do not update and will only show the new information if I remove the widget and create a new one. That is not helpful or practical and hence the reason for 2 stars.
  • Using for years and my rating keeps going down Feb 15, 2021

    By TheresaEstrada
    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.
  • 2+ Jul 15, 2020

    By Angme37
    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.
  • TRIAL PERIOD OF COZI GOLD Jan 24, 2018

    By Dgy3gt
    My husband and I are retired and I was looking for a simplistic way to share a calendar, grocery list and to do list. I very quickly decided the ads were going to be distracting and decided to use the 14-day free trial of Cozi Gold to determine if this is the app for us. I like the ease of making multiple shopping lists (grocery store, Sam's, Walmart, etc), the ease of making individual To Do lists and the ease of adding things to the lists. What I don't like is being unable to rearrange and organize the items on each list after they are entered. For example, I add things to the grocery list as I need them, but am unable to organize the list to make it easy to shop. Also, I have a lengthy To Do list and would like the option of rearranging to prioritize my chores. I haven't moved our calendar to the Cozi app yet, but read in another review you can't repeat entries without reentering all the information. Unless there are ways I've missed to do these things, I'll be leaving Cozi. DEVELOPER: Can you help?
  • Ok but could be better Jan 6, 2018

    By User7835
    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.
  • Holidays/Messaging/Recipes Jul 10, 2018

    By EllyMay808
    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.
  • Not impressed...especially for $30 Jul 11, 2020

    By Wollen_Kitten
    This *could* be a good calendar app if you could do everything from the app....but you can’t. You have to use a web browser to sync your calendar and also to add/manage contacts in the address book feature. The calendar only has two views: a rolling month and the agenda. The way the rolling month is set up, it’s hard to see where the current day is and any events scheduled for that day don’t show the colors for whose event it is. You can double tap to zoom in on that day, but you lose the ability to see where in the week/month you are. I have to assume that the app is the afterthought here, when in all actuality the app should be more prominent than the website. People always have their phone on them, but don’t always have their computer handy. It’s aesthetically pleasing, but just not that logical to use. Hard pass.
  • Needs a little work Oct 3, 2017

    By Organized maniac
    I have been using Cozi for number of years. There are a few issues that have me really tempted to try a different app. I no longer use the calendar because I did not care for the daily only layout option. I like to see a week or month at a time when needed in addition to daily. Options are good. Items go missing from my lists. I am positive I have added them yet when I'm standing in the store the items I added just a short time before are no longer on the list. Ads really frustrate me with Cozi! I go to add an item to a shopping list and the app takes a little bit to fully load, as I'm typing in the item an ad pops up in the text area and sends me to an external website that I didn't request. I have learned to wait for that app to fully load before I add an item however that is frustrating in itself. I really appreciate that the lists sync with my husbands phone which is a different operating system. He is able to add items to our shopping lists as well as I can. No longer can he tell me an item which I forget to add. He's now is responsible for adding his own item ;) I have added research a new list app to my to do list. I rely heavily on my lists and when items go missing it is time to find a new app. Sorry Cozi, I was a devoted user and gave plenty of time to fix the issues with no results.
  • Not what I expected Jul 27, 2021

    By R0tt0napples
    This calendar does it work well with other calendars. It doesn’t exchange with other calendars well it’s all read only. Doesn’t work with Alexa. You can’t do much as far as settings when your not on a desktop. The “month view” is not color coded. It’s the most basic view and is hard to read. This could be so great but I feel like it was a waste of money. There’s really NO REASON to buy the subscription. The free version is essentially the same since the month view is lacking in every way. That’s the only thing you get with upgrade. I will not buy again next year. Thanks for the reply. I’ve already been in contact with Cozi. They have given me the same links. The information is available it simply isn’t helpful. It does nothing with Alexa except lists which, for all the “works with Alexa” excitement I found, is really misleading. It should say “only works with lists in Alexa” I expect a more IFTTT approach with a family calendar. I expected to pay the premium and have lots of extras. Instead, I paid and found out it’s useless with Alexa and it’s exactly the same as I was for free. I’ll know better next year. It’s unfortunate because it COULD be a really valuable tool if it did more. And add some vegetarian and vegan recipes please. The one thing I can say, is you have great people working for you. They genuinely want to help. They are all very courteous and kind.
  • Not as good as I thought it was Jun 26, 2017

    By Ipodallthetime
    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.

    I purchased a full year of the app. I've experienced lots of glitches- items getting deleted, full lists getting deleted, so I reached out asking for a refund of the remaining 8 months left in my subscription. Not only did customer service basically say my glitches were user error, they said they don't do prorated refunds and just canceled my subscription without confirming that should be the next step. 10/10 would not recommend.
  • Gold scam alert!! May 3, 2021

    By Jimkcec
    I have asked for help now for over six months!! 2 years ago all was well in the family plan I thought it would be a neat gift for the family so I added the gold and my account was charged for several years. My family and myself never got access as it was only placed on my email and not the family!! Once I realized this I was eliminated from the family plan and now almost a year of email cannot get back to see the family plan. This with covid and 2 daughter graduating from high school has made COZI useless to me and not worth the money for gold or aggravation. I would highly not recommend this software as they scam you into going Gold then lock you out of the account and the only support is through email and very slow! I am not the only one that has experienced this as their frequently asked questions states if this occurs get in touch with customer service! I would highly advise seeking better business bureau help and or cancelling your card as they do not respond in a timely manner! The message I got was they see my plan and that I have paid for the service but they never attached it to the family plan and it has never worked!! Beware of the scam!!
  • Still dislike Jun 28, 2018

    By Mandapan
    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.
  • Don’t buy Gold; terrible design Jan 20, 2020

    By D.Alexarnett
    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.
  • Constant crashing! Jul 15, 2017

    By Need a reliable organizer
    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.
  • AWFUL Please don’t purchase. Jan 26, 2020

    By Epicimp
    I got this app because Cozi claimed it was “customizable.” The only thing I could customize was selecting a color for each household member. The weekly view was laid out so poorly I couldn’t make heads or tails at a glance and the monthly view was so bad I assumed there was a bug preventing the actual formatting from showing. PLEASE DONT BUY! COzi will not offer refund. Apple had me write a paragraph about why I was requesting a refund then IMMEDIATELY it popped up and said the product wasn’t eligible for a refund. They NEVER intended to even consider a refund but let me waste my time basically writing out everything I’ve said here. Horrible experience. What’s funny is that I won’t take another chance on an Apple app, ever. They could have refunded me and made me happy and I’d have continued to purchase from them. This all on my birthday no less. What a crummy way to start the day. I hope you benefit from my experience.
  • No longer love this app- Feb 21, 2021

    By GFB74
    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.
