Leticia Barr of TechSavvy Mama had a calendar problem. She asked the My LifeScoop community for help and thanks to a convincing commenter named Andrea (who also wins a $250 Visa gift card!), she thinks she’s found her solution. Leticia shares:
Thanks to everyone who provided helpful solutions to my calendar problem! I appreciated hearing from traditional paper calendar users who urged me not to fix what wasn’t broken to those who though Google Calendar was worth a second look.
I also liked being reminded of Cozi. The free Cozi service seems to best fit my calendaring needs. TherapyDogsHeal and Chrissiemz both urged me to give it a try, Andrea Updyke from Lil Kid Things shared that the free Cozi service would allow me and my husband to access it from our different mobile devices and it syncs nicely to Google Calendar.
Here’s her winning comment:
I am another Google Calendar user but Cozi is a much prettier application. Good news is you can link them! So if your husband prefers the interface of Google, he can update there and it will automatically feed to Cozi! Both can be used via mobile device. I also like pen to paper, but find nothing gets updated as easily as the google calendar. Good luck!
Congratulations Andrea! You have convinced me to try Cozi and have won a $250 Visa gift card for your suggestion.
I’ll be trying Cozi over the next week and will let you know how my transition from a paper to an online calendar goes!
