Rodax Software, Makers of Top-Rated Family Calendar App Skedi Family Calendar, Announces Skedi Lite, a New Economy Version of the Most Advanced Family Calendar on the Market Today
January 30, 2012 --
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/12 -- Rodax Software Inc., a Seattle software company specializing in cloud-based productivity apps for mobile devices, today announced Skedi Lite, a new economy version of its top-rated family calendaring app that lets parents check and manage the family calendar anytime and anywhere, with a simple touch from their smartphone. Like the full version of Skedi, Skedi Lite contains the robust features that make Skedi Family Calendar one of the most powerful family calendars on the market today, but it has no advertising and costs 75% less.
Unlike online family organizers, which typically contain ads and require families to standardize on a single online solution to manage their family activities, Skedi Lite lets busy parents plan and manage their family's activities on the go, all from the convenience of their smartphone. While Skedi Family Calendar is designed for families that need to connect multiple calendars across platforms and devices, Skedi Lite is designed for iOS families (iPhone, iPod touch and iPad) who want a family calendar that they can access anytime and anywhere, but who don't need to manage multiple calendars or sync events with Microsoft Exchange, Google Calendar, Yahoo!, or other outside calendars.
"We're pleased to announce this additional option of Skedi Family Calendar to meet the various needs of busy parents on the go," said John Boyer, president and founder of Rodax Software. "With Skedi Lite's low price, parents can economically add kids, babysitters, extended family members and more to their network, as well as have an easy way to upgrade to the full version of Skedi should their family calendaring needs change to include coordinating different calendar types and devices."
Other key features of Skedi Lite include:
- No more missed appointments -- Skedi Lite automatically sends parents email notifications for all new activities or events and whenever a family member accepts or declines an invitation
- Unlike family organizers, Skedi Lite lets parents assign responsibility for activities to partners, spouses, extended family, friends and babysitters
- Inexpensive to use -- its low price allows parents to easily add family members, friends, babysitters and more to their networks
- Free customer support for parents and their extended family networks -- one of the few apps to do so!
- Ad-free, unlike other low cost/no cost family calendaring apps or organizers
- Can easily upgrade to the full version if parents' needs change to include managing multiple calendars
- Easy to use -- if parents know how to use Apple's calendar app, they already know how to use Skedi
Skedi Lite is available now for only $1.99. In addition, Rodax Software has reduced the price of the full version of Skedi Family Calendar by 20% to $7.99. Both products come with free customer support.
