    Shared web/ap based calendar for family?

    Trying to organize our family's life. Anyone have recommendations on a web/ap based calendar that we can all edit and get on PCs, iPhones, and Droids?
    Even more unique built in features would be helpful to know.

    Thanks.

    have you looked into google's calendar? I *think* there is a way to do a group calendar that multiple people can access, fairly sure I was part of one for a group in college, but I was not the creator.

    We use Google Calendar for our household. I just have it on my account and shared with her. Then our phones both display it. But she can add events too, so it works pretty well

    My wife and I have that and we did not even try. We are both on US cellular and we both have the same Gmail account set as default on our Droids. I don't use my calendar but all her stuff shows up on mine.

    We use cozi too. My wife loves it. I'm pretty meh. There isn't anything wrong with it, but if it doesn't sync with my Outlook calendar at work it doesn't do me much good (note that is mostly an IT permissions issue with my work - what I really want is my wife to maintain the cozi calendar and send me Outlook notifications for the ones I care about - she claims she is too busy making me sandwiches though).

    Yeah, it's nothing fancy but it gets the job done and it's free and easy. We mostly use the shopping lists. I usually have no idea when she's going so I just keep putting what I need on the list so whenever she goes she knows what to buy for me.

    That's what I was wondering about.

    Use google. Then they can better target ads based on calendar and email.

    Re: Shared web/ap based calendar for family?

    We use Cozi and like it. I sync it with the school's online activities calendar. Event gets moved or cancelled on the school calendar and the Cozi calendar updates automatically. Can't be any easier than that. We initially chose it for the shared grocery list but have not used that as much as I thought we would.

    Edit: This link says that Outlook calendar will sync with Cozi.

    We also use Cozi and I've added the Outlook toolbar to sync with my outlook calendar and it works both ways as long as I label the event in outlook as family. It also adds all my Cozi events as private so it blocks off the time, but doesn't let anyone see the details.
