Tampa, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/25/2015 -- MamaBear®, The Ultimate Parenting App™ is growing, evolving, and cementing their place as the leading all-in-one parenting app that promotes family protection, communication, location, and organization.

Under their new CEO and President Suzanne Horton, the company recently acquired the family-friendly information sharing app, KidNotice.

MamaBear announced news of the acquisition on their blog in the article, "MamaBear Acquires KidNotice to Expand Its Family Safety App to Include Sharing Features."

The article introduces KidNotice and its features to the MamaBear audience while explaining why the acquisition is so important.

"We are committed to growing our feature list so MamaBear can help parents with everything they need," said Suzanne Horton. "And they need tools that open lines of communication between parents and kids, as well as other adults that care for the kids. KidNotice meets that need."

The MamaBear article explains how KidNotice uses technology to connect parents with other child caregivers in order to share vital information that can be used in case of an emergency. The tool shares a child's medical contact, insurance, allergy, and emergency contact information in a secure platform where parents can feel safe knowing their child's information is in the hands of those who need it.

"Technology has pros and cons. We are focused on leveraging the pros to help parents and rectifying the cons to protect kids," said Horton.

MamaBear's acquisition -- and their recent partnership with TeamSnap -- is part of their plan to offer the most comprehensive parenting app on the market. They continue to grow a feature list that promotes secure communication, as well as smartphone and telecommunication protection, social media reputation management, cyberbullying protection, and GPS-enabled connectivity.

"Over 27 million kids in the United Stated have smartphones today, and that number is expected to grow to 39 million in the next two years," Horton said. "As technology and its influence over our families grows, so will MamaBear. We will be there to continually protect and educate while providing the most advanced and useful tools for parents and kids living in this digital age."
