AppClose Solo is a unique and exclusive feature only available to AppClose users, allowing you to send requests or events to non-connected co-parents, third parties, or other family members via text, email, or social media. You can even attach receipts or documents and export and print any records you might need for free with access to all the other benefits of AppClose.

When you send a request or event to a non-connected party, that person is then notified with a link to view and respond by approving or declining your request or event. Once the non-connected party responds, you will receive notification and this response will be automatically recorded in the app. This allows you to keep accurate records within your AppClose account concerning your attempts to send and inform others of any financial obligations, events, or other important information concerning your child.

Awesome app!

I truly believe downloading this app should be the first step when dealing with a custody case. For me personally it has saved me time and time again with holding a Narcissist co-parent accountable. I highly recommended to contact their support team if you have issues or even suggestions for the app. They were responsive to my questions and have updated the app in a timely fashion to rectify issues or even add new features that I suggested. I love the fact that it’s free, because so many of us are already dishing out thousands of dollars into a already stressful situation. It’s a huge positive to your app by simply making this app free and available to all.

Great tool

This is a great app for co-parents. Whether you're having communication issues or not it's can help keep track of all your children's information that needs to be shared. Easy to use. Other comparable apps have a monthly fee.

This app took so much stress off my shoulders. I was finally able to communicate with my daughter's father without having to see his messages mixed in with my private stuff. Also, I am very happy that it facilitates communication!
