SolCalendar, Conveniently Share Your Events Via Mobile Messenger

SEOUL, KOREA--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2013) - SolCalendar that became the main Android calendar App strengthened its event sharing capability centering on mobile messenger and added 3 more languages; Thai, Polish and Dutch.

As for other existing web-based calendars or other mobile calendars, they used email to share events. When users put in their email addresses, they could only get some details including the date, time and place via email. However, SolCalendar strengthened its schedule sharing function through mobile messengers due to the spread of mobile devices and users' preferences that are moving towards instantaneity. If users select a mobile messenger such as What's up, Facebook messenger or Wechat from the schedule reminder menu, their events can be sent to messenger friends. When the friends open the URL sent together with the events, the same events are added on to the friends' SolCalendar as well. Since the events are directly added onto the calendar, this is especially more useful when sharing events such as trips, business trips, gatherings, family events and anniversaries.

SolStudio analyzes which functions of the SolCalendar are used the most from all over the world and actively communicates with the users, thus providing optimized services for each region, culture and user behavior. After having added the 24 hour time format and lunar calendar for Chinese-speaking users to add and see their events based on the lunar calendar, SolCalendar is closely collaborating mobile messengers that are most frequently used on each country to enhance convenience in sharing events.

In addition, SolCalendar translated by local users in Thailand, Poland and the Netherlands are added on the recent update and other users are also voluntarily translating the App in their own languages.

In China, SolCalendar has been officially registered on the largest local App market called 'Qihoo360.' The calendar app could further increase its influence by securing a channel that is officially managed by SolStudio in the Chinese market with vibrant local markets.

SolCalendar's distinct functions, design perfection and localization efforts are seen to have raised Android users' appreciations. In order to satisfy more demanding users, competition among calendar apps is also very intense. Recently, Any.do that is famous for its scheduling app launched Any.do Cal with fresh design and Google also improved its Google Calendar by connecting it with Google map. Such changes brought about by SolStudio's SolCalendar are viewed to enhance the overall quality of Android calendar apps and create constructive competition in the market.

SolCalendar is receiving positive reviews globally, being introduced as one of '30 of the most beautiful and well-designed Android apps' by a renowned US IT media 'The Next Web' and is being serviced in 16 languages including Korean, English, Chinese (simplified/traditional), Japanese, Spanish, French, Turkish, German, Danish, Italian, and Portuguese, Thai, Dutch and Polish.
