Review of Cafemom

Cafemom Reviewed 24 Dec 2009 · Average score 62%


Much of the web site is accessible, but with the main idea of being able to share photos and videos etc. it would have helped if there was a greater ability to describe these features. It is possible to share comments and the links are clear.
