Liviit is a lifestyle, planning and communication app specifically designed for All Ages. We offer a unique combination of sharing, messaging, organising and digital storage features for our users to use all in one place on any device in a safe and secure environment.
Liviit has been over 10 years in the making and is finally complete ready for Beta testing. It was born out of a desire to increase online safety, security and inclusiveness whilst also being functional and easy to use.
Our aim is to create a new and simpler way for our Users to organise their personal, social and work life is one place and also connect and share with loved ones, friends, colleagues, etc.
Although Liviit is not specifically a Family or Children app, we must be both Family and Children friendly but most importantly demonstrate compliance to regulations like COPPA which has been the driving focus.
The key functions of Liviit are to provide a:
- Private digital place for a User, as an individual, to manage their own calendar, create lists and store media privately. These are all accessed via the User Dashboard and is only visible by that User. Each User also has the ability to remain completely private (Liviit is private be default) or share their profile to the Liviit Directory if they choose.
- Private digital place for a group of users to create and manage their own Hub (advanced group) whereby the Creator of that Hub can invite other Users to join as either a fellow Administrator or Member. This Hub will share a common Feed, Chat, Calendar, Lists and Vault. These are all accessed via their Hub Home screen and is only visible by members of the Hub. During the creation of each Hub, the Creator allocates a Hub Category (ie Family, Friends, Social, Sports Team, Community Group, etc) and an Age Classification (G, PG, 15+ or 18+). The Category is used for ease of navigation whilst the Age Classification restricts Users of certain ages being a Member of a Hub where the content may not be age appropriate.
- User Management structure that allows for ALL AGES to safely use Liviit through the implementation of ‘Linked Accounts’. Liviit has 4 account types: Full (over 18), Junior (16-17), Supervised (14-15), and Managed (under 13). The later 3 types are ‘Linked Accounts’ that enable parents / guardians to create / approve accounts for young Users. Linked Account Users, depending on their age, are restricted from changing their account details, cannot be located on the Liviit Directory and cannot join Hubs with Age Classification higher than their own age. The matrix of allowable vs non-allowable actions has been meticulously developed over many years to provide the best user experience without compromising the online safely of our younger Users (of which I have 4 children myself aged from 10 to 16 years old).
Upon Login you will be directed to my User Dashboard. The tabs across the top of the screen are my personal Lists, Calendar and Vault only visible to me.
Hubs, Networks and Pages all have function specific Categories and all require an Age Classification. The most notable Hub you should view is the ‘Robertson Family Hub’ or ‘RobFam’. This is our private family Hub that has myself and my wife as the Hub Administrators and the 4 kids as Members where we share posts in the Feed, Chat as a group, create todo and house chores in Lists, manage or busy life in the Calendar and store our favourite images and videos within content specific folders in the Vault.
In the right menu you will see an option named ‘Linked’ inside there are 4 Linked Accounts. We have full access (press ‘View Account’) to my son’s (10) and daughter’s (12) accounts as they are both Managed Members being under 13. Other kids are 15 (Supervised) and 16 (Junior), in both cases we can access high level information be do not have full access to their accounts.
