So I’ve discovered that Kate and I are pretty good about keeping each other atop of what we’re doing. Sometimes, however, one of us will forget, and our schedules get pretty jumbled. I am big on the smartphone, she doesn’t see the need for one, since I already have one. (Don’t ask me, I don’t understand, either.) We’ve talked about the Google Calendar solution, which is interesting, but clunky.
What I’ve decided we need is this: a web app where two (or more) people can share a single calendar. That calendar can be updated via multiple channels — smart phone, desktop apps, iPad, whatever. Ideally, I should be able to look at the calendar and see what Kate’s already got scheduled, what I have scheduled, and so on. (Additionally, we should be able to block out time privately without details.) It should allow for reminders (more than just two, and more than just two days in advance) that can be sent to any combination of people on the user list.
It should merge data automatically from my Gmail calendar, Facebook events (and harvest things like friends’ birthdays).
Anyone know of an app like this?
