What is a death care app?

A death care application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to arrange for and pay for the funeral services of loved ones. Death care apps typically include interfaces for selecting caskets, flowers, and burial plots via photos and descriptions. Funeral homes use these apps to track their customers' purchases, manage payments and billings from families of the deceased, and synchronize inventory management with other software applications.

Death care apps share features with other types of health and medical apps, like fitness apps, disease management apps, and medical reference apps. We found a few examples of death care apps, including iFuneral and MyLastWill.

How to successfully grow your death care application

A death care app can attract new users by offering a selection of pre-arranged funeral packages that are competitively priced. While the app itself is free to download, the cost of the funeral packages may be paid through in-app purchases. It's important for death care apps to ensure that there are enough local funeral homes available to meet customer demand.

Risks and challenges of building a death care application

A death care app can face legal and reputational risks associated with the handling of sensitive personal information. If a death care app is designed to store medical or financial information, it is advisable that the app stores this information encrypted in the cloud.
