Top iPhone Apps for Moms, By Moms (PHOTOS)

Posted: 07/28/10 08:30 PM ET

Never underestimate a mom with an iPhone. Research from Greystripe show that moms love iPhone apps, and are downloading apps in various categories from games to productivity.

While most mobile developers are men, a growing number of opportunistic women are venturing into app development to create apps catered to other women. And many of these women are part of a group called Moms with Apps, a collaborative group of family-friendly developers who share best practices on making and marketing mobile apps.

When I began digging around for developers who also happened to be moms, I was impressed by both the sheer number of women I found and the passion with which they brought forward. The list below are a few of my favorites, and is by no means comprehensive.

BabyMedBasics By Tara Summers
1 of 7
Tara Summers was inspired to create BabyMedBasics after using the Heimlich Maneuver to save her son from choking. She realized that not all moms or babysitters are registered nurses, and wanted to give them lifesaving instructions at their fingertips. "I realized these things could also happen to my babysitter or my parents," she explains. "They could happen at the park, in a car or on an airplane. It became clear to me that part of loving my baby was knowing what to do during emergencies and making sure everyone who cares for him does the same."

Find on iTunes. $1.99.
