Our mission is to help busy parents, especially working moms, be happier and more productive. We accomplish this mission by giving parents better tools to organize their family schedule and shopping lists, assign chores to kids, get more help from the spouse and other family members, and turn the whole family into a productive and coordinated team. We want to give American families 2.2 billion hours back that they spend each year on coordinating family logistics so that they can spend more quality time with each other.
We are parents of two active kids, and we also take care of our aging parents. Our family calendar is chock-full of pickups and dropoffs, after-school activities, volunteer events, playdates and birthday parties, doctor appointments, and family vacations.
Prior to creating Calroo, we had to use 5 different apps (plus email and texting) just to keep track of who is doing what. Still, we sometimes missed appointments, thinking that the other person was going to do it.
We created Calroo for busy families like ours. Calroo is the only app you need to keep your family organized and in-sync. It combines a calendar, a to-do list, shopping lists, and messaging into a single app. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we do!

Calroo - Family calendar and messaging app
Calroo was built by a Silicon Valley power couple – Elena Krasnoperova (ex-PayPal, eBay & oDesk executive) and Laurent Perrodin (ex-senior software engineer at Apple).
“As a technology executive, I had access to great calendaring and project management tools that helped me strive in the workplace. But as soon as I came home, I had nothing. I wanted a family organizer app that helped me tame the chaos at home. So my husband and I created Calroo.”
“With our three kids, we are constantly shuttling them around. This app helps keep our busy schedule straight. I also really like the list feature – helps us coordinate what we need without lots of back-and-forth. Highly recommended for families with kids!”
App Store Review
“Moms are often described as the “family CEOs”. Calroo empowers the family CEO to get the help that she needs to get her job done.”
