LJ Reyes Launches MAPP, The Smart Mommy App

They say two heads are better than one - and when it comes to motherhood, it seems
highly applicable.

This is why MAPP The Smart Mommy App Co-Founders LJ Reyes and Trix Clasara
decided to merge their ideas instead of competing against each other, to form one
super app with the end goal of helping other moms with conquering motherhood with
a tap!

But their story is not as common.

In fact, up until early 2018, LJ and Trix didn't even know one another except for the fact
that they knew each one had their own mom-friendly app.

In 2015, three months into becoming a new mom, Trix created Mommily - a mobile app
that helped moms find baby-friendly places in the city out of a personal need to go
around town with kids in tow. It went live on Mother's Day of 2015.

A year later, LJ, a seasoned actress and well known celebrity, was trying to find
practical ways to spend time with her son Aki now that he is growing up and needing
more activities to do outside the home. In September 2016, LJ launched the very first
version of MApp-The Smart Mommy App, a mobile app that listed kid-related products
and places to go to in the city.

And in October 2017, their paths crossed
Trix was on the verge of selling Mommily and its shares since she and her family have
moved out of the city and she felt it would be nearly impossible to operate the business
outside of Manila. Her first instinct? Sell it to her main competitor, LJ of MApp.

At the very first meeting, these two mompreneurs knew right away that nothing was going to get sold, and no one is buying. Instead, they decided to merge their mobile
apps to make one bigger, better mom and baby friendly app that every mom will
benefit from Apart from loving motherhood, LJ, now with two kids. Aki and Summer and Trix, also with two kids Illy and Aman, are both passionate about making motherhood accessible to ALL moms.

They want to advocate families spending time together outside the home not only
as offen as they can but with the least stress possible - which is why clean lines and user
friendly Ul were paramount in designing MApp.

They believe that this platform will not only help moms get around the city with ease but
that it will create a significant pulse in changing the way malls and establishments lay out their floor plans -making sure they provide ample facilities for moms and all parents especially those with young children.

MApp will be available to download for FREE on iOS and Android starting July 13.

4 Fresh Song Collaborations You Should Listen to ASAP

It's been raining feels recently. Songs have also been pouring emotions to listeners, with artists even teaming up with other artists—making tracks seem like a double-whammy to most. 

Here are the latest collabs you should listen to ASAP.


Our sweet Jayda takes her music to new heights as she works with up and coming Indonesian singer-songwriter Renn Miko for track "Crazy About." Their duet talks about two people wondering if the other feels the same way, sung in the most hopeful yet most youthful way. Jayda is one of the Kapamilya artists who is slowly breaking into the international music scene as ABS-CBN continues to champion Filipino talent on the world stage.                                                                                                                                     



The catchy track showcases Loisa Andalio's newly-forged team up with rising rapper Kritiko. It talks about how lives of both changed since they met the other and being immensely thankful for it. Kritiko first graced the local music scene through Himig Handog 2018 where he won 3rd Best Song.



Two artists known for heart aching songs come together in a new hurting track, "Patawad, Paalam." Let Moira dela Torre and I Belong to the Zoo pluck at your heartstrings as they sing about the difficult road of loving and letting go.



Originally off KZ's sophomore album "Soul Supreme," the new version of "Imposible" features rapper and young hitmaker Shanti Dope. He matched KZ's lyrics about realizing how much she deserves better than an ex-lover with a verse of his own that goes, "Kaso parang pagod ka na kakaunawa / Panahon na din yata maalalang 'di na ako bata." The collaboration's music video, which premiered on YouTube last June 14, now has over 1.2 million views.  



Check out these songs and more in various digital music platforms and on ABS-CBN Star Music's YouTube channel. For updates, follow @abscbnpr on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or visit www.abscbnpr.com.
