Cron calander: what is cron?
Cron is a calendar for everyone to manage their tasks, events, and meetings. As their say “cron is a next-generation calendar for professionals and teams.
Cron is a relatively new platform to explore and use. I first saw it on product hunt golden kitty awards, I was impressed by the first look of it.
Because it’s in the beta stage, you only now can go to their website and put your email to get access to the app.
So I put the mail and after a few days, I received a unique link to access the cron app.
After downloading you have to connect to the existing calendar you have like Google calendar and then they all the required data to set up and get ready to use the app.
I am now using and scheduling my all tasks and meetings in the cron calendar. The best part about this app is its auto-syncs with your Google calendar. That is like a win-win situation.
If you want to look at your calendar on your mobile you can access all of your tasks auto-synced in your Google Calendar. You can just open the Google calendar app and see all of the things you did in your cron calendar. It’s awesome 😎.
Because cron calendar is in the beta stage and they aren’t rolled out the whole app yet, now it’s free and they have to be a free app to compete on the marketing because they have a big giant competitor Google calendar.
But I think, they may be going to be a freemium app where some of the basic features are free and cool, and advanced features are paid subscriptions.
We don’t have any confirmation yet, I will let you know about it in the future on my Twitter.
