Like practically every other aspect of life, developers have created apps for mobile devices that assist with organizing a funeral and help users work through the emotional toll of losing loved one. Whether you are trying to plan your own funeral ahead of time or planning a funeral for a loved one who recently died, these apps can really eliminate much of the stress that naturally ensues.
It may seem like a silly concept before you are actually going through it yourself. However once you are left to make all of the funeral arrangements and deal with financial matters such as burial insurance, suddenly an app that helps with what do when there is a death in the family starts to come in handy.
There are so many minor details that it’s easy to get lost in the logistics of planning a funeral. In a lot of ways it’s as strenuous as planning a wedding, but with the added emotional stress on top of the financial stress. When it comes to more complex matters such as working through the fine print of a burial policy, these apps can alleviate many concerns.
While there are new mobile apps popping up in the Android store and the Apple store all the time, here are just a few apps to get you started with organizing a funeral:
- Funeral – If you are interested in planning your own funeral, then iFuneral is a well-designed app that comprehensively covers the spectrum of aspects to consider. Select from options including type of coffin, songs to be played and items you wish to be buried with.
- Funeral Info – If you’re not sure exactly what is appropriate or which steps to take, this app will guide you through the process. Advice and tips are available for both those attending and planning the funeral.
- Memory Maker – This app from Tobin Brothers Funeral was created by funeral directors who know the process of planning a funeral inside and out. It can be hard to remember everything in a time of grief, but Memory Maker keeps all of your choices in one place.
