Plango Brings Facebook Calendars To Life

Posted by Blake Grundman on August 16th, 2011

Anyone who has ever used Facebook Calendars knows how tedious and downright irritating they can be to use.  How do you you make events private versus public?  How do you only invite some friends instead of everyone?  Heck, how do you send messages to all participants?  This is a difficult process to grasp, let alone succeed at, so why not check out a new tool that could make the whole process so much easier.

The amazing new app Plango is aiming to be your one stop solution for all things scheduling, for both Facebook and otherwise, so lets take a look at some of the features that it offers:

  • Invite friends to activities using push notifications and free SMS

  • Coordinate plan details and last minute changes with group messages

  • Check latest updates and see who's coming with Inbox

  • Use Plango as a calendar also for your personal events

  • Know when and where to be with calendar map view and location data

  • Check your friends' shared plans for inspiration

  • As nice as a list of bulletpoints are, they mean nothing unless the application is actually easy to use.  Here is a trailer showing how the software actually works, so you can get a good idea of the experience that can be expected when running on iOS:

    I have always felt that if there were tools that could bring your social networking and contacts together on the iPhone, there would be no better combination in the world.  Plango is the embodiment of that to the nth degree.  The fact that you don't necessarily need to even link the app to Facebook, instead using just your phone's contact list, is the outstanding icing on the cake.  On top of everything else, consider that the download is absolutely free, so you have absolutely no risk and everything to gain.  Check it out and let us know if you feel the same way.
