Posted by Stephen Hall on March 27th, 2014 iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
UpTooriginally launched in 2012, hoping to revolutionize the way we use our mobile calendar by making it just a bit more social. Now, more than two years later, the app is getting a facelift and a new breath of life with what the company behind the app is calling a relaunch; they feel they needed to start over to truly do the calendar right.
Part of what the new version of UpTo hopes to bring to the already very saturated calendar app market is a new user interface that has “multiple layers,” leaving behind the assumption that a calendar must be a flat list. Be sure to head over to the UpTo site for more info, check out the video teaser below, and you can grab the newest version of UpTo off the App Store right now.
Life is busy enough as it is, without having to figure schedule balancing into the mix. With so many different calendar services like iCal, Google Calendar and even Facebook events, it is becoming impossible to keep up! Now what if we told you that there was an application that could bring these distinctly seperate worlds together, all in the palm of your hand? Say hello to Upto, because it is ready to transform your social life for the better.
Not only does UpTo allow you to monitor your life across platforms, but it also adds in a new social aspect that allows users to share events and even comment on plans with all of their contacts. There is even a dynamically adjustable group system that ensures that no one is ever left out in the cold. Let us know if this free app transforms your social life the way they claim. Who knows? With the kind of press it has been receiving, it could very well be the wave of the future.
It is funny how once someone cracks midlife, suddenly their calendar becomes a constant companion. Thankfully the age of smartphone has made keeping track of life’s goings-on so much easier. But what if you were a person that wanted to share meetings, events and plans with others? Thankfully the tool UpTo can help bring the worlds of scheduling and social interaction together.
Integrating into your existing calendar software of choice, UpTo allows users to share events, view friends’ schedules, even seamlessly tie into Twitter and Facebook. All users need to do is fill their contact list with co-workers and friends to communicate, and suddenly the app becomes a social Swiss Army Knife that you can’t afford to go without. As an icing on the cake, the software is a completely free download in the App Store, so what are you waiting for? Be sure to share your hands-on impressions in the comments.
