Redesigning Skedi Family Calendar for iOS 7

Colored PencilsWe know you’re probably wondering, what’s going on with Skedi Family Calendar? You know that we had a busy summer, but now there’s a lot happening, and I can’t wait to share the details with you. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Skedi is undergoing a transformation for iOS 7.
  • It’ll be available soon and
  • Include new features such as recurring events.
  • And optimized for iPhone 5 devices running iOS 7.

The advent of iOS 7 forced us back to the drawing the board. You’ve given us a lot a great feedback (via our help-desk). So, we’ve completely redesigned Skedi and built it from the ground up. The result is an amazingly clean, simple, and fresh new user interface that I think you’ll love.

We’re planning to release Skedi 2 for iOS 7 at the beginning of next year. In addition, to a brand new look and feel, it will include new features such as repeating events and optimizations for iOS 7 and iPhone 5 devices.

Once released, you’ll find that Skedi 2 will only be available on iOS 7. We made this decision for two reasons:

  1. iOS 7 adoption rates now exceed 75% and we expect this will continue through 2014.
  2. As a small family-owned business, we decided that it’s more important for us to focus on improving the app and our services, instead of supporting older versions of iOS. Nonetheless, the latest version of Skedi will still be available on devices running iOS 6 and earlier.

Lastly, we’ve greatly appreciated your support over the years. It has meant so much to us. We’ve learned a lot and I think you’ll see it in Skedi 2. Stay tuned!
