"kin2kin has been brilliant. It's great to have all the family in one private place. We used to use text messages and emails, but that was not organised like kin2kin."
~ Grandfather of 7

“I love that there is little hesitation with posting on kin2kin. My anti-social media father (60) was straight on kin2kin and getting his private feedback is great. My 2 yr old son will have a whole bunch of memories and connections he can look back at”
~ Expat mum

"We are excited by the way the kin2kin product can connect families and social groups whilst managing the risks that exist around online connections."
~ CEO Netsafe

~ Mother of 3

Auntie Mac ,

Best way to keep it within the family

Kin2kin is a great app for staying in touch with family without sharing with all of those people on your friends list!

The app is easy to use and offers lots of fun options, I.e sending presents!!!


Developer Response ,

Hey Auntie Mac! Thanks a million for the great review. We feel as though there is a time and a place for everything and with family, kin2kin in the place and any time is a good time! We're glad to hear you're loving it and finding all of our features fun and easy to use.

Did you know that we now offer digital wi-fi frames? They bring your kin2kin photos directly to your living room! Super cool! You can find it in app by going to the menu option on the bottom right hand side of your home screen.

I love this app!!

I can't say enough positive things about this app.
I am finally in touch with some of my family members that don't like social media as they are quite private and don't like how intrusive social media can be.
This is like having my own Facebook between just me and my family!
Love, love, love!!
