    I am just starting to use Cozi and it is already helping our family get organized. I am looking forward to using it more as I can already tell that it is deceasing our overall stress and freeing up my brain to think about other things.
  • Thank you for overcomplicating my life

    My wife is making me use this app. The scheduling is a cluster. Don’t you dare have a work schedule the crosses the midnight boundary because the calendar will populate you working every day multiple times a day. This clogs up the calendar so that you actually miss other important events. What if you live in one time zone and work in another. That is also a cluster as this app actually confuses you. Do you know what has been more useful? A printed out calendar and a pencil. On the positive side, the lists are useful. However, still second to a pencil and paper and a text message.

    With a busy family of 5, one of my favorite sayings is “Put it on Cozi” - you will wonder how you functioned without it!

    Before this app came along my family was running around with our heads cut off. We are a close net family that offer a lending hand with our kids and our mom watches our under school aged kids. At one point before this app we would over schedule ourselves and it was pure chaos. This app has become a staple in our family and nobody schedules a thing until checking Cozi first.

    By KellyM1067
    I sometimes need to move things from one day to another, ball games move dates due to rain, etc., but I still get reminders for the original date after changes are made. I’d rather not delete and re-enter since all the info is there. Other than that I love this app for our busy family, even the dog has a color so I can see when he needs a certain med or has a vet appointment.
  • Pretty good but...

    Okay, I LOVE this app and all but there’s one problem. Every month, you have to sign back in and it gets annoying, but it's pretty legit overall.
  • Bills in calendar needed

    I’ve been using gold for literally years. We started using it in college to keep track of sorority schedules and the schedule of my boyfriend(now my husband) and I, now we have a daughter and have added her. 5 years ago it was great but now there’s things that seem to be missing or could be improved upon. I’m disappointed that there hasn’t been any real update to what is offered. I would personally love to see a function in the calendar to see the date of bills and you could go in check that they’re paid and possibly have the font as a different color so you can tell they aren’t appointments. I also think the drag and drop function needs to be improved in the list area since sometimes it goes to change your text. I also wish I could color code within lists. I have also been hoping to see a desktop app for Mac and PC. Overall amazing product but after all these years things need to be added to make it the ultimate family organizer.
  • mostly love it, but it’s feeling dated..

    I’ve been a loyal subscriber of Cozi Gold for years. We use this to run our family - calendars, groceries, meal planning, to-do’s, etc. I used to rave about it to my friends, but lately it’s starting to feel dated. It used to get feature and UX updates, but I can’t remember the last time I saw anything new and useful show up. I would welcome a fresh new look, a redo of the meals section (the integration with my recipes is terrible - a bunch of stuff was imported that I now can’t organize, search of recipes never works right,etc). It would be awesome if you could incorporate Life360 functionality into this. Every few months I go check out other services like Picnic to see if there’s something better yet. So far they haven’t reached the level of Cozi, but they are starting to get close.
  • Keeps the family on the same page!

    We love it- unseating on one phone shares with whole family. We can now keep things a lot more organized with events and jotting what needs to be bought for groceries. Gold membership, totally worth it. Cheers!
  • Good, not great

    Like how it creates a separate shareable family calendar. It really needs a better menu view, especially monthly. Hard to see anything useful, and have more view options like other calendars.

    I am so happy with this app, I think it takes a little bit of time to get use to putting everything in it but once you do, it is so easy to communicate with your family on plans, meals, to do and shopping lists.

    I have been using this app for many years now and I can say that it is the best thing for keeping me organized. It is a great tool for lists and calendar plus much more. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an app to stay organized.

    ...the app keeps freezing! It’s very frustrating when looking up my shopping list and it freezes 3 or 4 times. I keep shutting down and reopening the app and praying it doesn't freeze. It doesn’t matter how good an app is if it doesn’t work!!!
  • Like but would recommend a few changes

    By Ridgergal
    I just began using this app with my four sisters to help us coordinate care for our mother. I can tell it will be very helpful for our needs. I would like to see the To Do window expanded in the calendar. It could easily be overlooked because it is at the top of the monthly calendar in a small text box with a tiny font and only part of the message shows up in the little box. Also, a section for Notes would be extremely helpful.

    It’s a great app, I’ve used three others. Best one so far because of email, sharing ability, and how organized it is. I do not like the pay to use other features but it’s not a bad free one. It would be better if the app also included a reminder feature to it.

    Real disappointment since you have to pay just to have birthdays on here, which is mainly what I want it for, other than reminders, and daily calendar/schedule!

    There is def room for improvement but it serves the purpose of having a calendar. 1. I wish the calendar events were fully visible and color coordinated. 2. I wish the events were closer to the date number. 3. I wish it was a little more user friendly.
  • Family Calendar Simplified!

    Cozi keeps every family member’s schedule in one place. Scheduled events and appointments as they come up—no editing to check the calendar at home. Set alarms, send reminders when events change, view daily or monthly layout, plus additional planning tools for task lists & meal schedule. Cozi keeps us organized!

    Cozy has been such a blessing during the crazy years raising five children and having to demanding careers. My husband and I have really loved using the calendar and the grocery list to keep us all on the same page. I hope you can be a blessing to your family too

    The functionality of his app to share lists with it is good. However, I need an app for the Apple Watch that is compatible so that I can add items to my Cozi list from my watch. I hope that it is added.

    You just ruined the free version with the constantly rolling audio ads that can’t be stopped without adjusting phone volume. 🤷🏼‍♀️ what were you thinking??? On the search for a new calendar app...

    Renewed Cozi Gold 2 months ago. Still no access to Gold. It was billed twice. One was refunded but I still don’t have access to Gold. Error message says “It will be activated as soon as possible”. No one from support has followed up with me.
  • No recurring todos

    By Used to use it more
    I was looking for an app to manage the chore list. Found Cozi with great reviews so I downloaded it. But it was quite disappointing that it does not let me manage recurring todos, that makes it quite ineffective at managing chore list.
  • Love this app

    By Enirama
    I love this app! It helps me and my husband stay on the same page and can add grocery items as needed during the week. TWO THINGS I wish it did: allow you to attach pictures to grocery items so I can remember which particular product we get for those we dont replenish often. Had an undo button - I deleted my grocery list showing someone the app!

    We love this app. I would love an expanded version that had a budget portion option and receipt and money tracking. Also an option for goals and tracking. I use a separate program called goals wizard that makes reoccurring stuff easy and you can check off daily. I would love something on here like that. It would be nice to consolidate everything into this app!! Love that you can uncheck lists to use again after you check them off. Love the journal part. Love the grocery lists and other lists.

    Cozi Gold is close to perfect as a family schedule organizer. We have used it for 4 or 5 years now and it is super! My one wish is that they add a comprehensive print function and yes, I would be willing to pay more for that capability.
  • Disappointing, especially for mobile use

    A desktop computer is necessary, and customer service is nonexistent. When I attempted to email customer service via the app, my email was returned as undeliverable due to an incorrect email address.

    Way too expensive for a subpar product & all sales final. (TLDR: Download TimeTree. More useful & FREE!) Thought we'd love Cozi, got Gold subscription ($29.99!) even tho we only upgraded for monthly view & search function. BUT... on included holiday calendar, Easter is missing. Their reasoning: Easter is not a federal US holiday. So I have to manually add it in, then create a reminder to manually add it in yearly since it falls on a different day every year. Unnecessarily tedious! Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve aren't included, among other holidays that likely affect users' schedules. Lazy programming! Cozi provides bare minimum, even to paying customers. Both views (List & Monthly) are difficult to sift through & visually separate. Design & typography needs work here. Not user-friendly: can't even double-click on a day in Month view to open up that day's events! Have to tap on the day in Month view then click Week view just to see that day. Simple functionality missing. All-day events do NOT show on lock screen widget. Even included holidays & added birthdays will NEVER show. If you manually add a holiday, you have to pick a time for it to show, but it ALSO doesn't show events where the START time has passed (not END time!), so you can't schedule it from midnight through 11:55pm; you have to schedule the start time for 11:55pm for it to show all day, but keep in mind the widget only shows TWO upcoming events, so if you have ANY other 2 events starting before 11:55pm, the workaround doesn't work until it's 1 of the last 2 events of the day. Pretty useless. You can't add a Contact in manually, you have to have the contact created in your phone, then import it into Cozi. It pulls photo, phone numbers, physical addressees, emails & notes. Doesn't import URLs saved to that contact. Workaround: add URLs into Notes field but then it's also that way in your phone unless you change it, import it, & change it back again. & you'd have to do it every time any info changes because you can't edit Contacts in the app!!! Cozi must think people pay for mobile app subscriptions just to be forced to login on a computer for more useful functions. Features that sound cool that you don't actually use: "Themes" - all it really does is barely change the colors on your list & month view. The "image" for the theme only shows on the "Family" tab which should really be labeled "Settings" & who gives a flying flip how pretty the SETTINGS screen is? Would have made more sense to have the home screen or calendar be prettified but nope, just the one "settings" screen. No one uses the Recipes section. No reviews listed so to check if a recipe is worthwhile, you have to click the link Cozi pulled it from & check the website in Safari. Don't expect AllRecipes, it's 5-6 selected recipes from 6 categories, plus a list of about 75 of "Cozi's picks." Anything else, you have to add by URL. It's easier to just bookmark in Safari. Journal is lacking: you can only post a plain text description with 1 image. You can't add multiple images like an album from a family gathering, a video, a PDF/document, URLs, there's no text formatting, & you can't "like" or "comment" so no clue if anyone's even seen it. It also feels counterintuitive to have the Journal here (a perceived "Settings" area), would make more sense on the home screen as a "feed." You don't get notifications for new journal entries like you do for calendar events. Shopping & To Do lists are basic. You can't add anything to your list in uppercase because it creates a sublist with that as the heading. If you click on the heading to change it back to a list item, it forces the word to title case. (Ex: "Add Medication" is different from "ADD medication") It's also silly that you have to swipe to edit a list name instead of it being in the menu options inside the list. Different family members can "own" a to do list (not shopping) but it doesn't change anything except the color of the title icon. Every member can see & edit all lists. Would be nice to make certain lists private & only allow its owner & selected members to view. What if my spouse & I want to make a list of things needed for our daughter's surprise party without her seeing it? We're right back to using shared Reminders or Notes in iOS. You can add URLs in your list items now, but no attachments. If I want my spouse to pick up something they've never seen, I end up texting a picture & eliminating that use for Cozi. (iOS Notes allows attachments.) Home : I do enjoy the colored dots that show next to upcoming events but we never remember who is what color, so it's not useful. Maybe add an expandable key/legend? My biggest gripe with the home screen is lack of customization. It only shows upcoming events & the last-edited shopping list & to do list (according to Cozi: "when the algorithm works" anyway.) Would be more useful to allow users to choose which lists (as in multiple) & organize how these are shown here. The last-edited list isn't always the most important or needed. We love using TimeTree because we have multiple calendars, each shared with specific people that can add events to it as well, & the ability to copy events between calendars or see all calendars together to ensure no double-bookings or schedule conflicts. Also a feed showing any activity on the calendars, by whom, with options to like, comment, or add a photo to the activity. Monthly view & search function included, too. 😱 Really wanted to love Cozi, but only resentful having wasted $30 on something we were doing for free (& better) in iOS. (I can just tell Siri to add something to my store list!) Especially now that we've found a free app that does everything (calendar-wise) with quality functionality & a MUCH better user interface that doesn't crash, Cozi is just overpriced with not enough features -- more of a beta product that needs to be user-tested, given feedback on, & highly improved before selling at such a high, nonrefundable price.
