What can you use the app for?

CalendarFly.com bills itself as a scheduling solution geared towards students, parents, teachers and coaches. Although the site narrows down its client base, it also notes that the tools included can be used by anyone. The user adds activities and events to their calendar, which are saved online. The user can see time slots represented in blocks. CalendarFly also provides a list style view that includes a color code for the group the item belongs to along with the name of the event and the date and time it will occur. A short note can also be added so the user knows exactly what needs done prior to the event. A snapshot of the user’s schedule can also be reviewed with boxes sorted by time with a note included. Users can easily switch time periods to include seven, 14, 30, 60 or 90 days or page through specific years.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

CalendarFly was founded by its current CEO, Drew Aldrich. The team is based in Pelham, New York and includes less than five individuals. The application’s founder began its blog on January 9th, 2009. During the following few months, CalendarFly underwent a number of small fixes and updates. Larger upgrades were implemented by March of the same year. CalendarFly is currently in beta.

CalendarFly.com was shut down in 2011.

What are the differences to other apps?

It is difficult to call CalendarFly totally unique. The application performs many of the same functions as other web based calendar tools. The user interface favors those who work with groups, making it an appealing option for teachers, students, parents and casual users. The interface is simple to understand and users can add a personal status to their profile.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

CalendarFly welcomes users with an orange and blue color scheme offset by a white background and dark grey elements. The user’s calendar is presented using color coded blocks. Each color represents a different group on the user’s profile. A wide text field at the top of the page allows the user to add a status. Tabs along the top, right hand corner allow the user to switch between weekly, monthly or list views. The app has an outdated look and feel.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can start building a calendar by clicking the light orange “Register Now, It’s Free!” button positioned along the left hand side of the homepage (inside the solid blue bar). The registration form on the following page asks for an email address, password, first and last name, city location, state, country, time zone, zip code and date of birth. An option field is available to include the user’s physical address as well. The user must check each of the boxes that appear under the terms of use and privacy policy boxes before clicking the orange “Save” button at the bottom of the form.

What does it cost to use the application?

CalendarFly welcomes all users for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges for using the application. Everyone is given the same level of access and can schedule as many events and activities as they like. New users should note that the application is currently in beta, so it is possible that a paid membership option could be added later.

Who would you recommend the application to?

CalendarFly.com offers many of the same features that other calendar applications do. It may be more appealing for coaches or anyone who works with a group. Teachers and students can also implement CalendarFly, although they have a number of other options available that can do many of the same things.
