One of the first things you probably did after moving into your hostel in Karve Nagar was swap schedules with your roommate. But if you live with multiple roommates or don’t keep a copy of their schedules on your phone, it can be difficult to remember and keep track of everyone’s calendar. Then you’re stuck texting your roommate about their availability every time you want to hang out or invite friends over. TimeTree knows that back-and-forth chat about schedules is not what you want to do with your free time. That’s why it allows you to create a shared schedule calendar and sync your timetables with each other. You and your roommates can then use the app to easily add events, send reminders, or even upload photos. Plus, you can adjust the settings to automatically import data from your Google calendar so you’re saved the step of manually updating your schedule. The perfect solution for busy roommates.
