In a society where being busy is synonymous with productivity, it can be tempting to be always on the move and occupied. However, this notion comes at the cost of spending quality time with those who are important, particularly for friends and family. As a method to capitalize on the free time that someone has, FriendConnect aims to streamline the coordination aspect of coordinating events with those who are important. Whereas other tools integrate calendars only for a single user, the app is one which aggregates the calendars of friends to make organizing social events easier for multiple people.
Upon opening the app, users are given a walkthrough of setting up a time when they are free and inviting their selected friends who they are interested in spending time with. The invited friends can then go through the same process and then create an event at which point the other users can accept the invitation. Although the nature of the app is extremely simple to grasp, it offers a significantly streamlined solution that is far more efficient than having a conversation regarding available times, especially if the coordination is among a larger group.
Given the inefficiencies associated with scheduling events with others, FriendConnect makes it easy to create, share, and invite friends to social gatherings. By showing when everyone has free time, it is significantly easier to spend time with friends and family either through a private or public invitation on Facebook. The degree of simplicity that FriendConnect offers in terms of integration and ease-of-use makes it one of the best tools available for those who often have trouble scheduling events with different people.
