While living in Canada, my kids are far away from my family. To keep the kids connected to Nana Jaan and Nano, as well as , Mamoos, we use Maily. We have been using Maily to stay connected with all family, without the stress of internet dangers that all are aware of, nowadays.

1. Why should you check out Maily to stay connected?

While searching for most suggested apps, I noticed that Maily was unique. It was an interface which allowed all the touch-screen actions which would attract the child, yet at the same, reawaken the age old art of writing to loved ones. It seemed that the best trick to get kids to write to the family, is to use Maily to stay connected.

2. What does Maily do?

Maily is connected to the parent email address. The parent chooses who to add as ‘Contacts’ for the child. This is done in such a manner, that the child is never exposed to email addresses. Instead, only names appear. I picked her grandparents and uncles, and added to the list.

When my daughter wants to send a Maily, she simply taps on the contact name, and is then taken to a screen where she can color, add images, post messages,and even take and post live pictures. She sends it off with a click of a button. The Maily then arrives in my inbox for approval to be sent forward. Once the message is received, the reader then replies with a return Maily. This return Maily is again delivered to my inbox for approval to be sent to my daughter’s inbox.

Of course, my family also had to download the application, or use the website online. Yet, it ensures that no junk or spam mail comes through. Nor does the child get exposed to strangers. All the joys of using Maily to stay connected.

3. Why we keep using Maily to stay connected?

I have noticed that the attraction of using Maily has encouraged my child to connect with her relatives, and keep her entertained as well. All in all, Maily is truly a great app, which does more than act as playtime. If you are residing far from home, I would highly recommend this app for connecting your child with her family.
