Cozi is a free mobile app and website that helps families stay organized. Its features allow multiple family members to manage appointments and schedules with one account, as well as organize and update shopping and to-do lists. Cozi also provides articles and recipes of particular interest to modern families. Cozi is accessible from any computer, mobile phone, or tablet. The company's tag line is "Family Life. Simplified."

Cozi is an American company co-founded by Robbie Cape and Jan Miksovsky after the two of them left Microsoft.[1] Most of the company's employees worked previously at Amazon.com, Expedia, or Microsoft. The company's first product was called Cozi Central and was released on September 25, 2006, and includes a family calendar, shopping lists, family messaging and a photo collage screensaver. The company had 35 employees as of June 24, 2011,[2] and is based in Seattle, Washington.

Cozi was acquired by Time Inc. in 2014.[3] It was moved into the Parents Network division of the Meredith Corporation when that company acquired Time Inc. in early 2018.

Cozi offers an advertisement-free version of its app, called Cozi Gold, as an in-app purchase. Cozi Gold's additional features include Cozi Contacts, Birthday Tracker, more reminders, mobile month view, change notifications, VIP customer support and more.
