when.me is a schedule and reminder application for mobile that will ensure that you and your friends will never forget an event again, that's for sure. So why is it different to all the other scheduling apps available? Well, when.me adds a social element to proceedings and can even use Facebook and Twitter to give you a constant reminder of events you might want to get involved in with your friends. You can track your friends' future plans and add photos (before and after the event, if you like.) In reality, when.me acts as a virtual calendar where you can plan events in the future, invite your friends to come with you and keep them up to scratch via the app, social networks or messaged through their iPhone.
When.me is what could be called a social-local-mobile app that lets you and your friends track each others' future plans - and get involved if you want to. Just plug in the future plans and events you'd like to make public and your when.me friends can join you and its easy to add photos before, during or after the event. Friends not yet signed up can be notified of events through their Facebook and Twitter accounts and you can even get event reminders sent to you and your friends' iPhones. The when.me network serves as an interactive event calendar allowing you to plan events while bringing your friends along for the ride. Alternatively, use it as a motivational app to keep people up to date with your goals and when you plan to accomplish certain objectives. You can choose to make a goal or event public or private, selecting who can see which of your plans. If your plan is to go bike riding tomorrow at 4, you can make your event private and go alone, or make it public so that fellow bike riding enthusiast friends can possibly join you. Once you create an event, you and your chosen viewers will be able to watch a running clock that counts down until the event occurs. You can then check back and see how much time you have left until your exciting event, no matter whether it happens later today, in two weeks or in fifteen years.
Where when.me succeeds over other similar schedule apps could ironically be the very same thing that turns people off it. The countdown! While it is probably pretty useful to have a running countdown of how long it is to an event coming at you at all directions I can think of a number of friends who would be driven insane by the constant reminders. when.me makes it easy to list your upcoming events in a simple and easy to use layout and makes it simple for friends to join in. There's even a contest element where you can gain points in a fun leader board style social competition.
