SolCalendar team opened a Beta Test sign-up page on Google Play where
individuals and companies can register their interest in testing
pre-release version of SolCalendar. Beta Test will be vital in
identifying user feedback for the update and to reflect them in the
SolCalendar 1.5 will include ▶ To-do and To-do Widget ▶ Google Maps &
Foursquare Integration ▶ Countdown, Date & Shortcut widgets ▶ Simple
Stickers Package ▶ Clear & Simple UX/UI
SolCalendar team says that the whole aim of this major update is to
raise customer satisfaction.
To-do and Map integration, which were two of the most desired features
of SolCalendar users, were included in this update. Also, new
customizable countdown, date, shortcut widgets and simple stickers were
added to fulfill the tastes of vast majority of users.
The most noticeable change in this update is its new To-do feature. By
supporting to-dos and to-do widgets that syncs with Google Tasks, Task
management became another key aspect of SolCalendar along with time
Also, SolCalendar will become the ‘Google’ calendar app on Android for
supporting Google Tasks and Google Maps simultaneously. Not even Google
Calendar supports these two features, so this makes everything simple
for users who are looking for the best alternative to Google Calendar
The update also brings a completely redesigned UI that is much more
clear and simple than the old version. Views for adding event are
simplified, and Today & Agenda Views are integrated in one menu. Also,
unlike in other calendar apps, users can check their monthly and weekly
schedules at a glance with the Split View.
SolCalendar team will be opening up the experimental build of its app to
willing testers through Google Play’s Beta Test Program. To become a
Beta Tester, you need to join SolCalendar Community on Google+ (https://plus.google.com/communities/114268789932460565401)
and follow the process suggested in the Community Info and notice.
However, there can be time delay before downloading due to the
authorization process of Google Play Store.
“SolCalendar users are very active in giving ideas and suggestions.”
said DK Jung, Product Manager at Daum Communications. “By reviewing the
ideas thoroughly, we found out that we need some kind of link with other
services, such as Google Maps and Google Tasks.” He added.
DK also added that they can bring more diverse and practical functions
for their future updates as they will further listen to their user’s
SolCalendar was launched on September 2013 by Sol Studio, Daum’s global
mobile app brand. Also, it was introduced as one of the `30 of the most
beautiful and well-designed Android app.` by TNW(The Next Web).
SolCalendar is available in 17 languages, including Korean, English,

A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
