Mobile apps that accompany parents during the first years of their children’s life are a rather small market compared to the whole app-economy. Nevertheless, they represent a market fragment which is highly relevant for their users. They can become a permanent companion during the first years of the life of a baby. With every parent in the U.S. owning at least a smartphone or a tablet by 2015, there will be an unprecedented demand for solutions which allow parents to constantly be informed about their children’s development. Moreover, monetization chances for parental apps are high because of daily multi-time usage, high brand awareness, high relevance and the intrinsic sharing need of parents. Thus, parental apps should on average be able to charge higher app download prices, generate in-app advertisement and purchase revenues compared to apps of other categories.

Mobile apps that support parents to securely raise their children are of high value. App developers can build their apps upon strong mobile use cases like:
-Never miss a moment: There is a strong demand for capturing every important and not so important moment of a baby’s life. Diary apps help parents to capture the first smile, the first word etc., comment, organize and share those captures.
-Peace of mind: To get immediate access to information and guidance on e.g. vaccinations, diseases and “how-to” guides is a powerful mobile use case for parents.
-Quantified self: How much a baby grew over time or how often a baby eats are topics that most parents carefully follow. Tracking apps support parents in measuring, tracking and visualizing core body KPIs (e.g. weight and height) or food intake in a very convenient way.
