Help for Parents on the Go: New iPhone App From Rodax Lets Parents Coordinate the Family’s Calendars, From Google to Exchange, in One Spot With Just a Simple Touch from Their iPhone
Seattle, Wash. (Sept. 14, 2011) – Rodax Software, a Seattle software company specializing in cloud-based productivity apps for mobile devices, today unveiled Skedi, the world’s first iPhone app that lets parents connect and manage the calendars of everyone in the family, no matter the type or platform, anytime and anywhere with simply a touch from their iPhone.
With Skedi, busy parents on the go can see the schedules of every family member and plan everything from school appointments to extracurricular activities, including use of the family car (important with teen drivers), directly from their iPhone. Because Skedi connects different types of calendars under a single app, there is no need for family members to switch to a new calendar in order for Skedi to work. Controls are in place, so parents can designate what calendar items children or teens must accept. Only people invited by parents are allowed to share the calendar, and parents have the option of including extended family, close friends, babysitters and more.
“Skedi lets parents avoid conflicting appointments or the need to go home to check everyone’s calendars first by managing everyone’s schedules on the go directly from their smartphone,” said John Boyer, president and founder of the company and creator of Skedi. “With Skedi, everyone in the family can continue to use their favorite calendar – Skedi automatically takes that information and combines it in a single iPhone app that can be managed by parents.”
Other top features include:
- No need for retyping appointments – Skedi automatically enters data in all calendars (including calendars at work and at home)
- Easy to import events from published school, club or team calendars
- Skedi lets parents delegate events to parents, friends and babysitters
- Skedi is easy to use – if parents know how to use Apple’s calendar app, they already know how to use Skedi.
Skedi is initially available for the iPhone and iPod touch, with plans to add additional platforms in the future. Skedi can be purchased directly through the Apple App Store. Pricing is $9.99 per app. Unlike many apps, Skedi includes free unlimited customer support and service. Customers can contact support in the app or use the online help desk.
Skedi was developed by Rodax Software, a privately held software company headquartered in Seattle, Wash. specializing in mobile software applications. The company was founded by John Boyer, a seasoned software executive with 14 years of experience for a variety of technology companies including IBM.
