Our everyday lives can be hectic, and that chaotic fast paced feeling can sometimes only increase during the Summer when more people tend to plan vacations, work events, family outings, road trips with friends and more. This is where scheduling apps can be a very useful tool to have on hand and with the presence of smartphones there is wealth of different options out there. Doodle is one such option and they have just recently updated their Android application to bring in some new features, a new design and the same reliable scheduling functionality many people are already used to. Doodle is already one of the most popular scheduling tools out there, but what makes it so popular is its social interaction.
Doodle is great for setting up group events, and this is where the app’s chat feature can be of an assistance to help people organize and coordinate with each other on what’s happening. The app integrates with your contacts to make adding people to group events a snap, and once you have things set up after selecting some dates and the times for the event, everyone can chat to discuss what works out to be the best option. Scheduling things is important but sometimes it can seem like more of a chore and it isn’t always a quick process, and according to Doodle, 61% of people that they surveyed said they cancel social gatherings because the process to schedule everything takes too long. Doodle aims to strip away that factor and make the scheduling process simple and fast.
With push notifications you can get updates and alerts when group event members respond so you don’t miss important messages and you’re not out of the loop. Doodle also lets you create polls so you can have people vote on what they might like to do for a specific event, and the app integrates with multiple Google accounts allowing users to switch between them pretty effortlessly. If you’re looking to do away with having to send multiple emails and messages just to find out what everyone wants to do, Doodle can help with that. Since it’s an online scheduler and it’s tied to your Google accounts, you can also access your schedules and functions from the website if you’re using a desktop, or through the app when you’re out and about.
