About The Amazing UM App
Check out this write-up from Yahoo about our new App! Link to article: Here
Maria Hunt, Founder of Unicorn Moms, an online community of more than 70,000 women, launches the platform's mobile app to allow moms to embrace their individuality and connect with like-minded Moms in their area through increased geo-location capabilities.
"There are a lot of online support groups, communities, and even apps on the market that target moms but most of those apps focus around your child with tips ranging from finding the best babysitter to setting up playdates for your kids. Unicorn Moms is different because we focus on the mom as an individual and on her identity outside of motherhood. Moms love our Facebook community and website because they find it to be a safe place where they are free to express themselves and talk about their hopes, triumphs, and struggles without fear of judgment. With the mobile app, we've made it easier for moms to connect while on the go and set up grownup playdates with other like-minded women in their area," said Maria Hunt, Founder of Unicorn Moms.
Both the Unicorn Moms site and app cover topics that Moms want to talk about, ranging from their favorite deals, cocktails, and recipes, to airing their dirty laundry or seeking advice on their career goals or marital challenges.
"We are thrilled to launch the app in coordination with UniCon, which is our convention that took place this past weekend in Los Angeles. There were over 400 Unicorn Moms in attendance who were thrilled at the news of the upcoming app, and we are already planning our next con." The gatherings are meant to empower moms and our goal is to change the conversation – taking the focus away from the obvious and lifting up something that moms often overlook – themselves!" said Maria Hunt.
How Does It Work?
The Unicorn Moms community has always been free to join! They only have one rule: no mean moms! If you enjoy the online community, you can download the Unicorn Moms app for $1.99 to any IOS phone (Android coming soon). Once downloaded, you can create your profile and you will automatically be added to the main feed. In the feed, you can view other profiles, enter group discussions, sign up for events, or direct message other moms in your area that you'd like to meet. You can sort the main feed to only view posts you're in the mood for (funny, relationships, etc.). The app allows users to take relationships a step further and create a real-life support system with other local mothers through geo-location technology. You can also plan or attend local Unicorn Mom events in your area and buy merchandise from the Unicorn Moms store like clothing, wine glasses, and more.
