Winnie is a clever new social networking app built specifically for parents

The lives of parents are riddled with questions, many of which go unanswered. It could be as simple as questioning whether or not a local coffee shop is cool with kids, or if a playground is as nice as it looks from a distance. To help make sense of it all, there’s now Winnie.

Winnie is essentially a social network for parents where they can share stories and tag locations as being kid (and parent!) friendly. Parents can note small details like whether or not a bathroom has changing tables, or if there is room for junior’s behemoth stroller.

Users can also tell stories about interesting interactions while at a location (I mean, maybe the barista isn’t creepy and really just likes kids; you’d probably want to know ahead of time), or simply share their small moments of triumphs.

Winnie has over 100,000 locations in the US, with more being added daily.

In a Medium post, Winnie CEO Sara Mauskopf says “we are building a platform for all parents — single parents, transgender parents, families with disabilities, parents on a budget — so that no one has to go on this journey alone.”

Winnie is currently available for iOS, and is free with no in-app purchases.
