How do two busy retirees keep up with their schedules? With this calendar! So easy to use! My favorite app!

Be better if monthly opened instead of daily
Never miss another appointment or ballgame
by SweerNell on 2021/01/13 17:10
Great app, keeps us updated with appointments, ballgames, vacations of twelve people. Without this calendar I would miss appointments and other family activities, I just don’t know how I would keep up with everything I need to attend or take one of our greats to games or appointments.
Awesome app!
by GodzGirl27 on 2021/01/13 16:53
I love this app and the fact that it’s free is a plus! Easy to use too.

by Leah 2800 on 2021/01/13 16:37
I enjoy this calendar because it is the first one I have downloaded and actually continued to use because it is simple and easy to sync with my husband as well to view and add stuff.
Great except...
by The Busy Bees on 2021/01/13 15:06
This app is great for keeping track of our family things. The only issue we have (since my husband and are connected on the app) is that our lists don’t sync very quickly. It could be a couple of hours or up to a day before they update. It makes it hard for us to make shopping plans.
Lost Boy
by austin's wonder on 2021/01/13 14:13
Family calendar is a great organizing tool. Helps coordinate daily comings and going’s, good reminder tool, handles multiple shopping lists, to do lists. Great for keeping us on time and headed in the right direction
Reminders
by cbitcbitcbit on 2021/01/13 13:23
Would love to be able to set appointment reminder notifications on my phone through this app

by Mscarlar on 2021/01/13 13:10
Love being able to keep a joint calendar with my hubby. Keeps us on track. The grocery list is great! We can both add to if from our own phones. Even when I’m shopping hubs can add things. Works perfectly!

Keeps my schedule handy
Awesome App
by Hobo Wilson on 2021/01/13 04:07
Positives-It’s very easy to use, straight forward configurations, and user-friendly. Negatives- I would want the next update to improve in the area of adding an event automatically (either from your Apple or Android calendar or the App) versus adding the event than individually sharing it to your family (because this is the only way everyone can see who added an event)
Love the app
by Lima1977777 on 2021/01/13 03:42
This app is great!! Being able to look at the family calendar and know where and what everyone is doing is so great!!
Great app.
by violetnurs on 2021/01/13 01:52
We use this app for our appointments and our shopping lists it works great, we put the initial of the store in before the item and can go to several stores on one outing.
Love this app
by jwaldro on 2021/01/13 00:34

Made Me Switch From Paper
by mpollock91 on 2021/01/12 02:35
I LOVE this app. It does everything my paper planner could (color codes, to-do lists, grocery lists, etc). But it has the benefit of always being with me. My husband also can see the family calendar from his phone. Would highly recommend!
Good app. Helps our family greatly
by Davefrombmi on 2021/01/12 02:31
Easy to use and great for organizing.
Okay app, could be better
by mpb12334 on 2021/01/12 01:21
Would be nice to have option to automatically “share event with family”, instead of having to always go in and edit every single event to share with other family members. Also find that if I move the date of an event within Apple calendar it will create a new event on that date in FamCal as well as keeping the original event and date; annoying to have to go back into FamCal and delete original and “share with family” the ‘new’ date event.
Great organizer!

I dislike that it doesn’t load a day or month upon opening but a menu screen. Also have lots of trouble keeping accounts connected. Reminders don’t work.

No one forgets to write events when they use their phones! The paper calendar and paper grocery list were never as accessible. Anyone in the household who goes to the supermarket buys what's on the list. My son took care of a mega list the other day and he was actually proud!
Super easy to use!

Use for bills and events with my husband everyday
by lumagooster on 2021/01/09 13:40
My husband adds when he has things to do during the month. We also add bills and when they are due. I like that you can make lists and grocery list and that you can make a reminder for an event. I also love that I get notified when my husband adds anything to the calendar or lists
Fantastic App!
by straton12 on 2021/01/09 12:25
This is probably my most favorite app I have. Extremely useful and well organized. Can’t beat having a calendar to do list and shopping list shared through the family. I no longer have missed an appointment and enjoy using it. I wouldn’t use any other calendar app. It has everything we need. They make periodic updates that are functional and make sense.
Love the calendar
by 4Him&Him4u on 2021/01/09 03:41
I love the calendar, just would love to highlight certain things to stand out more, especially when I have more than 1 thing scheduled on the same day.

My favorite app for my whole family!!! Includes all events and no excuses!! Pay for the full design and it’s amazing and cheap! It truly is the best for the whole family to stay connected and know what’s going on!! So worth the money!

by moriahjade on 2018/08/12 18:42
I am a 27 year old that was paralyzed 6 years ago. This app is perfect for me and my family because I can add a grocery list so if they are at the store- they can see I need eggs and grab be some without even having to call or text. Which I get so many of those a day it just makes my life easier. There’s also a calendar so no one forgets events (or mom-in-law sees that it’s my fiancé and I’s anniversary and know he’s being cared for even if he doesn’t answer his phone). His mom also loves the memo app where I can add our pictures that I don’t think should go on Facebook, but want family to see. Eliminates group text (as my parents are divorced so I have to send everything separately... but not now!! They can just sign in and see what I’m up to! Everyone can comment - giving my family and fiancés family a chance to get to know each other. It’s fantastic. I wish I could edit and create my own dashboard (editing what shows up first to my liking) which would be a neat idea. But it’s an amazing app exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you.
Great App for Families
by belkins87 on 2019/04/16 17:15
My wife and I tried a few years ago to share calendars and could not find an app that worked for us. My wife found this app and having it has made tracking each other's schedules so much easier. There are only a few things I don't like about the app that may improve with future updates if they choose to incorporate them. 1) Holidays listed: there are some holidays listed that I have never heard of and don't need to see on my calendar. My options are to leave them or turn them all off and manually add in the ones I want which I don't want to have to do. 2) No way to interface with a computer: My work calendar is tied to Outlook on my work computer. It would be nice to have the ability to add items (work or otherwise) to my FamCal calendar from a computer rather than punching it in on my phone. More a minor inconvenience. 3) Status for events: Sometimes it would be nice to note a meeting or possible event without being shown as committed to it. The best way to explain this would be to compare it to the options in Outlook where you can "Show As:" Free, Busy, Tentative. There are times my wife has events on the calendar that she wants to see but isn't actually going or hasn't decided. Other than these minor items we like the app and plan to keep using and recommend it for other families.
So far, so good 👍🏽
by Chris51509 on 2018/02/02 14:20
I keep a separate personal calendar because the one that came with the iPhone has my work connected to it. So I never want to put personal items on it. My old personal calendar no longer worked with iOS 11. Until I started searching new calendars, it didn’t dawn on me that I could get one to share with my husband and possibly kids. This is great! My husband and I share the grocery shopping, etc., so it’s awesome to have list that we can both add to and subtract from. And being able to see each other‘s appointments etc. is great. This is a great tool for any family! I can imagine how good this calendar would have been when my kids were a little younger with all the activities and sports! Having the wall calendar in the kitchen is OK, but this is with us at all times! So far this has been easy to use and more than suits our needs! I have not experienced any bugs are issues.
Great way to share info
by CT901 on 2019/06/29 17:51
It’s best to add your kids (those who are old enough of course, they WILL need an email address) to this wonderful app. Everyone is able to update the calendar with information (work, trips, games, important dates, doctor/dentist appointments, etc.) and the shopping lists (of which you can create MULTIPLE lists!) which is beyond useful. One of the very best parts? Put something in YOUR calendar on your phone...it automatically imports the data, no duplicate entry needed! I’m enjoying everyone in my house being in ‘the know’ and being able to see what is added over the course of a business day without unnecessary texts. I especially like not coming home from work or the store only to hear that we needed something or someone has somewhere urgently to go. If it's not on one of the lists or in the calendar...there is genuinely no one to blame.
The Perfect Family Calendar
by Kayla in MS on 2019/01/16 21:52
This calendar is terrific! As a mom, I can put my schedule on it, my husband can put his on it, and my kids can put theirs on it all on one calendar on each persons device with one email/password. It is amazing. As soon as someone adds a new event, the calendar automatically syncs across all of our devices so a glance at any time will show whats going on. We all have our own assigned colors. Planning any family event just got way way easier. The only thing i havnt tried is assigning a picture to each person in addition to their own color. It would be neat if the picture could show up next to their event. Maybe its possible, dont know... havnt tried it. This calendar beats ALL of the others I have tried. Its a simple input... so my 60 year old mother can operate it as well as my 7 year old child. Try it! U wont be disappointed!!
5 star best app!!!
by as a matter of fact on 2019/11/20 01:45
People ask me how do I stay organized with all the things I do and between 2 businesses that I run. So I show them my FamCal app and briefly explain how it works and quickly show them how I book an appointment, Set a reminder alarm and that’s it. They immediately download the free app and get started just like I did. It’s easy no glitches it’s free and I thought I could never get away from writing my schedule down in the one of those little calendar books that I would keep in my purse. Thank you for making it so easy and teaching me to use my cell phone for all my scheduling and reminder needs. PS my business partner and I share a calendar and my husband and I share another. We love how we can color coordinate appointments, from business to free time stuff as well as we each have our own designated color.
FamCal helped our family!
by PeaskiFam on 2020/07/11 05:32
I’d like to think we’ve been using this app for 1.5 years now; I’d have to go back and look to be more specific. There are 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens. My husband works 2 full-time fire dept jobs, I work in sales and also take college courses online. Both of our kids have activities or dr appts happening every week! This literally has been the most effective calendar for our family where we can all input different events happening or even just add to the grocery list. The best part about it is having it on our phones! Calendars at home only help when we’re at home and able to view it. With this we can view our schedules at any given time. Can’t say enough good things about the effectiveness and how helpful it’s been to allow our family to coordinate with one another. Thank you!
Friends are Family
by Meggg122 on 2019/01/11 15:48
You don’t have to have kids to use this app. My friends are my family and we use this and it’s been GREAT! My group of friends and I were always frustrated trying to make plans with each other for upcoming weekends and such without knowing everyone else’s schedules. We’re a very tight knit group of friends who like to regularly hang out and make more long term plans like concerts or events and stuff. I did some research, found this app and had everyone download it and it’s been FANTASTIC. If we’re looking to hang out or make plans we just check the calendar on the app and see if anyone has plans already. It took a while to get everyone to start updating the calendar regularly with when they are busy but now we actually have fun with it! We put things on there like movie or video game release dates. It really is great.
Great tool for teens & moms together
by Pf mama on 2018/02/09 12:58
My daughter is in High school AP classes and on 2 swim teams, so time is a precious asset. She didn’t use the hard copy planners (yes, we tried many), but since she ALWAYS has her phone, we tried this app. It is perfect for seeing her HW via the to do list and all the exams, tutorials, quizzes, swim practices, etc. on the calendar. I don’t have to ask what’s done or when she has to be at school early - I just look at FamCal. She likes checking off her homework and seeing that item disappear or strike out text. We really like this app!! My suggestion for improvement: when adding items to the calendar, please add a recurring date option that’s not just daily, weekly or monthly. Ex: swim practice alternates every other day so being able to choose random dates for one calendar item would be great.
Used to be fantastic
by Clarecoll on 2020/09/24 18:17
This app used to be fantastic but a couple months ago they updated how they did the ads and now it’s more of a pain than anything else. I have to watch video ads in the middle of the grocery store to check my list about every 3 items and half the time the ads don’t have a close button so I have to exit the app, reopen it and then rewatch an ad to get back to my list. The same goes for making a list, every few items I add I have to wait through a video ad. It didn’t used to be like that and we loved it. It was great for sharing calendars and keeping track of the kids. I considered purchasing the full version to get rid of the ads but it’s too expensive when there are other apps available that do the same thing for half the price. Plus it feels like they are trying to force my hand with the increase in ads which does not make me want to give them any money.
Very useful
by Mymysmom on 2018/10/01 19:45
Not a complicated app at all. It's the only organizer type that I've ever actually made use of. Normally I download a bunch of them in the hope that I will finally find one that clicks and isn't too complicated or too boring. I agreed to try this with my husband because we never know what each other is doing so the calendar has been very helpful. The to-do list is great because I can finally show him what a ridiculous amount of stuff I need to do and get him to share the load. Shopping list is a plus. Other features too but it's really a pretty good start to organizing your family- as much as possible. Plus, I have ADHD as does my husband and this has helped keep me dialed in to what's happening because normally I forget a lot!
Mostly love it
by 7 together on 2020/01/28 03:03
I love how you can use this across family members. Works great for multiple people. We used to use the standard apple calendar app but everyone else hated getting notified of every event being added to the calendar and inviting people to events with email would not work. Fam cal makes it easy to see who’s going where and when and just notify that person. Better than google calendar on the alert side. Lists- awesome how everyone can add stuff to them at any time. Negatives - ads.. annoying - pop ups and they block the bottom row of info Switching between days is challenging. On the day view you can see yours list but not on the calendar view. You also cant zoom in on the just day unless you go to the other view. (It shows the entire month) Everyone can see all items on the calendar. So if you have a private event, you have to rename it or not put it on the calendar, even though you can select who is going to it. Doesnt work well with apple watch. You have to have your phone to look at most of the stuff and it doesnt update to the current day unless you close the app and restart it. No way to edit users names after you enter them the first time unless you delete the person and make a new one.
Just what we needed 👍🏻
by trazelosaurus07 on 2018/07/18 02:50
My fiancé and I are trying to keep our eating out to a certain capped amount. We had ordered a tangible desk calendar, hung it on the wall, and the idea was to write down every time we went out to eat and how much we spent. We wanted to keep the tallies fair, and we wanted to shock ourselves by the gross amount of $ spent at restaurants. We figured if it was right in our faces we’d be more accountable. Well, best laid plans and all. We’d forget to write it down more than half the time because we’d be out when the charges occurred. Or we’d forget to write down who bought so we’d know whose turn it was next time. Now we can make an event as soon as the bill comes, color coded by person. The other great features of to-do lists and shopping lists are just bonuses.
FamCal has been a life saver!!
by BirdRanch on 2020/07/14 05:22
Being a high school coach, rancher, book keeper for our family business, wife and mom of 2 middle school athletes and an active 5 year old.... this app has saved my sanity these past 2 months. I was looking for a way to track my own games, my kids games, PT appointments, 4-H schedule and our hunters booking hunts and went through a few apps and FamCal has gotten my vote and just been a life saver. As hunters text wanting to book a hunt I can look right away in FamCal and tell them right away instead of having to wait until I get back home to the calendar on my wall. Plus my husband and daughter can both see the calendar and any of us can add an event on there when we need to! So helpful!!!! Definitely recommend!!!!!!

by Abso1ut3 Zero on 2018/07/07 22:33
This app has made life a lot easier for my wife and I. We have three young kids, and it helps keep all our appointments and such in order with each other and our grandmother. I don’t remember if I paid for the app, but having used it for nearly 2 months, I would pay for it. The ease of sharing appointments between multiple family members is a must. As soon as any family member enters the appointment info, it updates on all family members who use the app. It sends a push notification to the device of the appointment. It’s a must have!!! Update: I have been using this app for about 6 months, and we have added the grandparents to the app. This is a great app and a must have for people who make plans or have a busy lifestyle.
Great family calendar
by krshrwd on 2018/06/27 14:57
I like how my whole family has access to the same calendar. I also like that we can all put our separate schedules on there as well. The only suggestions to improve the app would be small personalization ideas. I use another calendar app where I can change color of the days (such as the days I get paid), syncing my calendar with google (to save my info in case the app were to freeze or crash), defaulting my calendar as my home page rather than being brought to the main menu & changing fonts. Those are just a few of my many ideas. If this calendar had all those features I’d only use this calendar app. But for now this & Jorte are my two favorite calendar apps!
My “everything” app! I
by LDM37 on 2020/06/30 17:04
Best shared app I’ve every had! 😉 All four of us in my family use the FamCal app. We love the color coded dots on the calendar to keep our very busy family organized! All of us can see the app in real time so it’s easy to check what is on the calendar when making plans for events/meetings/ parties/ practices/ vacations/ etc., with a quick glance! We also LOVE the shared shopping list! Anytime one of the kids runs out of something, they just add it to the list! That was it’s not forgotten if mom or dad or sad run to the store alone. The memos are great to for noting quick notes or to save important like snap a quick pic of an address... Or if someone makes and appointment for another family member, they can set a reminder! We literally function around then FamCal app! Best app I have seen on all platforms! :) We have used the free version for a long time and never had an issue! Not once! Our youngest child of 7 years can also login and add things to the shopping list. It’s very easy to use and as I mentioned it’s all in real time! If you’re here reading reviews to find the best app to organize yourself or family, you should try this!
Great way to keep family connected
by Not Yo Average Momma on 2019/09/03 13:49
If you have a big family and like to know what direction everyone is going, this is the app for you, especially if you have several active teenagers like myself. Each member of the home has a color, so just a quick glance at the calendar, helps to determine who’s event is scheduled. It also sends alerts to everyone, just mom, or whoever you choose. Another great feature is the option for everyone to add to the grocery list. Members are able to add notes and send reminders as well. This app is easy to navigate and understand, even for a simple un-technological mind like mine. Five stars for sure, definitely recommend! Shout out to this company for making mom life manageable!!
So far so good
by Purple123! on 2018/03/21 00:07
I am really likening this app, I haven’t shared with the other parent yet but it’s an easy way to keep track of things. I have a complicated parenting time schedule with so many changes and I keep Callender all over the house my purse my car and this has eliminated most of them! I can easily check things and not worry about losing all of my information. It was easy to put my schedule in and include my mom who often watches my daughter can check who’s picking up and dropping off and get an idea of the time. This is a wonderful option for people who have a lot of people involved in your child’s life. No waiting for a response or worry that you didn’t provide the write times and dates. It’s all there and handy!
Best Shared calendar and list App
by Jojok49 on 2020/07/05 21:24
This app is AMAZING!! I have tried a handful of different shared calendar and schedule apps, and this is by far the best I’ve ever encountered. When it comes to organizing a household schedule, between my husband and occasional roommates, I couldn’t hope for something better. This app has also been exceptionally useful in maintaining grocery lists, household supply lists, and more. I’ve started using it even for my personal scheduling, as I find it preferable to any of the regular calendars I’ve used.I would absolutely recommend this app for anyone who wants a single place to keep track of their lists, schedules, mammals, and more, weather just with themselves or with their roommates or families.
Great
by drewhester22 on 2018/09/02 19:33
Been using it with my girlfriend. We are both going to separate schools hour away. I have classes, track, rotc , and army reserve commitment. She also has school, research, and two jobs. So we are both very busy. This app has been vital in allowing us to plan and invest in each other too. Helps us keep track of each other’s schedules. As well as, keep emergency contacts Of eAchothers in the case of something wrong. Love that the events can be joint or that you can hide events from the others if necessary. That way you can keep a surprise secret without needing a deifferent calendar. I might not be familiar enough. But I’m wanting more push notifications. Apart from that. I love this app. It’s a big help.
Excellent app...and it’s free!
by BeNicole05 on 2018/06/26 23:30
This app has helped my family tremendously. We were using google calendar for work and other items, but that calendar became clogged. This app will import items from google, but also allows us to schedule social events quickly. Tech support responded promptly to the one issue we had. I appreciate having the grocery list that is shared. I can easily text my husband and ask him to pick up items and he can see the list and check the item off. The family to do list is excellent as well. I realize that there are other apps out there that might be better, but they come at an expense. We have encouraged many of our friends to try this app.
Perfect for families!
by Bumblebee825 on 2020/05/26 20:11
I have been using this app for years now and it has worked so well with my family! It’s a shared calendar so my husband and I have been able to stay on the same page with our kid’s school events, appointments, work schedule, etc. My husband is not one to look at paper calendars but he checks this calendar often on his phone to see if there is any events planned especially school events and appointments. We both work so our work schedules are plotted on the calendar reminding me not to schedule myself to work on the day he is working so I can be with the kids instead of finding a babysitter. This app has been amazing! 👌
Great!
by Darian F. on 2019/07/10 00:44
My mom and dad are divorced and they are always confused on what’s happening. So I decided to look at apps so we can be more organized. I found this app and I told my mom to download it and I would help her figure it out. Once our whole family knew what the app was and we had most of all of our events in the calendar, we were so organized and my whole family said the app was great, which it was. The only problem I have with the app was having to pay for things that were really easy to do. Since our family is VERY big, it takes a pretty long time to get all the birthdays into the calendar, so you have to pay to import all the birthdays into the calendar. Other than that the app was pretty great!
Organized and Involved
by livinthejeepdream on 2019/03/31 20:19
This app is awesome to keep my schedule and my boyfriend’s organized! It helps us to both know what events are going on and when so we don’t have to constantly ask each other what’s going on this weekend. I work at three different hospitals and one is two hours away, he works and is in a band, and we both have very involved families. This app helps us make it to all the important stuff we need to be at, as well as know which hospital I’m supposed to be at during the week. That way we’re both organized, there is less miscommunication, and we both stay involved in making the schedule not just one persons stuff.
Great family planner!
by Allen W Thomsen on 2018/12/31 22:32
My wife and kids use FamCal all the time to keep track of each other’s schedule. We have a shopping list so that any time one of us picks an item up we check it off in FamCal and it updates across our group immediately. That feature alone is worth having the app, but the app is capable of so much more. Scheduling an outing with the family is hard to do but in FamCal we can look at everybody's schedule and pick a day or evening and boom! We love FamCal. It’s easy to use, it doesn’t have glitches, and it’s been helping our family stay organized for over 2 years now. I hope this review helps someone decide to try it!
Best Shared Calendar
by Kalimarissag on 2018/09/26 15:45
I rarely go as far to write reviews, but I’m both an organizational and design freak who has searched a long time for a family shared calendar- I have taken my entire family through 3 or 4 other big apps, paying for all subscriptions, and this is the absolute best one on the App Store. It’s clean, incredibly easy to sort through, and the “week” view option makes it a breeze to manage, sort through and work around the exact times of events shared between 5 people. The widget could be easier to see but it is a far, far superior app to the others-and no cheesy PowerPoint graphics, painful fonts or ugly layouts 😁
Pretty good
by Loving it! :))) By me on 2017/11/26 16:37
I enjoy this app. I got it so my husband and I could know what was happening in each other's lives. It's helped a lot. My issue with it though is the set duration doesn't have a set duration that works for jobs. I use this calendar most to put my work schedule in and it's annoying to have to constantly change the start time and the end time. Because my schedule is always changing I can't do a recurring event. It would be really nice to have a duration that I can set for 8 and a half hours so that I only have to change the start time and the end time will automatically populate. In any other calendar app that I've used it's either been "trained" for lack of a better word, or it remembers time frames so that it becomes easier after a few inputs. It would be great if that was something that could be added.
Keeping our family on track!
by Luedtkebear01 on 2020/12/26 13:55
This app is great for keeping my family on track. We jot down appointments, meetings, and events on the calendar so we know what is going on each day. The list function is a God send as well. We keep our grocery list there and since the app is shareable my husband or I can do the grocery shopping when the time is convenient because we both have the list! The only thing that I have noticed that I don’t particularly like is if I add something to the grocery list and my husband goes that same day the item does not show up on his list. It’s inconvenient and somewhat annoying but not enough to make me stop using the app altogether. Thanks! Alaina
Two Households: Almost Perfect!
by cheresec on 2018/06/28 16:40
I have been searching for a shared calendar that can accommodate our needs for two households with children. We use this app to share the children’s doctor appointments, sport schedules, school flyers and it also houses important contacts. For example, we are about to go out of state with the children and I have put an asterisk next to all of the adults that will be traveling with us during that week in case we are unable to be reached for emergencies. This allows the children’s mother to have easy access in an organized location. One thing I would love to see in a future update is: * Allow images and clickable links to be added to events that are viewable from the home screen when the events are occurring. (Hope this makes sense!) The app is almost perfect for our needs. I’ve been searching for one that was appropriate for a situation like ours that didn’t feel purely for one household. It has helped communications immensely. I am also still figuring out how to receive notifications when others add events to the calendar but I’m still new to the app.
Love the list functionality of this app!
by Bsjur on 2020/09/06 17:16
I have been using this app for a few years now. I originally installed it to share kids activity calendars but love the list functionality! I’m a list person. :) I keep lists for grocery and household items. My kids all have the app and access to the lists. If someone needs shampoo or toothpaste they add it to the list. If they want something from the grocery store they add it to the list. We’ve used it for packing lists for trips and moves to college. Most recently I started using it birthday and Christmas gift ideas. The kids can add items to their lists as they come up with ideas.
Great app
by kendall1717 on 2018/01/31 14:35
Love this app. It’s great for families that are always on the go like mine. So much you can do and link with other apps. The one down fall I have is that if you set for only 2 out of the 4 or however many in your family everyone can still see that. In most cases that’s not a bad thing but we have 2 children that go to other homes and not that the other parents look but they can. I would recommend for an upgrade to be when you put something in only have it show for that person or be able to control what is seen for each person. Such as an administrator or manager for each person.
Very useful app!
by Rhiannon778 on 2018/01/25 21:41
I needed something to keep my family up on doctor appointments, planned outings and what not. My husband is an OTR Driver so it’s hard for him to keep up and remember things since he doesn’t have daily access to our wall calendar at home. I found this app and decided to give it a try. So far, it is working out great! I can set events for and notify specific people or all, save birthday’s to remember, have it remind me hours/days/week in advance of the event, etc. My husband gets the notifications, so he knows what is going on. This has helped us so much!! I highly recommend this app to anyone who needs to be organized.
Mom, wife, and teacher
by shepherd94 on 2020/12/26 23:44
Love FamCal despite the frequent ads. This is so helpful for our busy lifestyle and large family including teenagers with schedules they forget to tell us about! It helps us keep everyone’s schedules straight as well as grabbing quick things from the grocery list without doubling up on items or having to text each other lists. I love it! The “To Do List” feature is also great!—it’s fun to have pretty much all my organizational tools in one place. The ads in the free version are getting a little too much lately, though. They pop up every time I open the app and won’t let me close out of them to use the app for at least 5-10 seconds.
Easy to use & superb customer service!
by Drhofer on 2018/11/22 15:32
You guys, you must use this app. I am a paper and pencil calendar girl, but let’s face it we can’t always have our calendars with us. I tried the iCal, I’ve tried google, I’ve tried others and they just aren’t easy to manage. This app is the answer. It is easy to use across platforms and multiple devices. Last night I thought I lost everything because it appeared my account was messed up. I emailed the company and they literally responded and resolved the issue immediately with no data lost. Excellent service on top of an excellent product always has me calling it a win!
Excels where others don’t
by Ryandun101 on 2018/10/23 16:45
This app is exactly what I have been looking for. I take care of an elderly parent and this helps keep my days in order...not to mention my life. With the ability to create customs lists I can creat things todo for every day and shopping lists that I take with me while running errand in the errands list. It keeps track of doctor appointments and medications lists and so many other things that I need on a daily basis. I have tried other shared calendars but this seems to be the best and the least frustrating. I highly recommend this app to anyone who needs to organize their life and family.
Love it so far, but want some things it doesn’t have
by curtmeli on 2019/03/18 00:31
This app is awesome. Especially because you can access all of it for FREE! I was expecting something I had to pay for eventually, but no, it’s all free. I refused to pay for the family scheduling apps that cost an arm and a leg. I love everything about this app, but I wish it had more. I would love a recipe feature, and a meal planning feature. But, maybe that’s why it’s free. I still use it for this, it’s just a bit harder than it would be if it was a real feature. I have never written a review for an app, but this one really is great. So glad I found it!
Great App - Would Benefit From An Assign Function
by StephanieAgatha on 2020/05/17 17:31
Let me just say, I love this app. Coming from a household with several unorganized adults, it makes organizing shopping + important announcements very simple and clear. The ONLY complaint I have is I wish there was a way to “assign” chores. Like, have an option for a chores list + get to assign these tasks to different family members. You can kind of do this with memos, but it would be great if it could actually assign, so that individuals would get phone reminders/notifications to finish their chores. Otherwise, I find this app to be comprehensive and easy to use for all of our family members. Definitely worth getting + using!
Great app, until it stops working right. Customer service is silent.
by Laurainjuly on 2020/08/19 01:10
Update: took two days to hear back from customer service, by then we had fixed it by doing the tech support 101 answer of logging out and logging back in & restarting phone. Hopefully this bug doesn’t happen again. I wrote the below feedback to customer service and still haven’t heard back. So glad this subscription just renewed for a year, when my bid and and I can’t see each other’s updates correctly. What the heck? I bought this app so my husband and I can share calendars and to-do lists. However, recently we can’t see each other’s and collaborate, even on shared to-do lists. We can see activity updates from notification screen but when we try and access that to-do list we get the attached error: “This list has not been downloaded yet. Please wait a moment” and then nothing happens. Is this a known bug that is being fixed? Please help troubleshoot why we can’t see each other’s shared to-do lists anymore. Thank you!
Love it
by Finnaly something that works on 2018/01/08 05:35
This app has everything I was looking for but had not asked for. I was looking for something easy that my 11 year old son and I could use. I was also looking for a memo app and grocery list app. When I saw this had the format I was looking for I was happy but when I saw they has a shopping list and a memo list and a to do list that were all shareable I was thrilled. Sold!!!! We can all function as one while keeping our independence. My son doesn't have to call me to ask me what he needs to do. I don't have to worry that i will go to the store and come home to realize i forgot the milk. love it!
Almost Perfect
by Nebraska born on 2018/11/05 20:42
So far I love everything about this app. I use I for home and my business (all in one) so my family can see what’s going on. I like that we as parents can control what we want our kids to see or not see on the calendar. Love the shopping list and that everyone can see them and they update so that when we are at the store and something gets added that item can be bought at that time without a phone call being made. ***Id like to see that there be an option to add things to the calendar on a bi-weekly, 1st week, 2nd week, 3rd week, 4th week basis. These are all instances that have to be added manually at this time 😕
Not good for multiple kids/events at the same time
by #tiredparents on 2019/10/09 16:03
After looking at several calendar apps, I chose this one and paid $24 to upgrade for the entire year.... what a waste of money. It won’t let me add multiple events on some of the days, others it will. I have two children in sports and I was hoping I would be able to keep track of everything on here but it will not let me schedule 2 events at the same time or in a close time slot (For example, volleyball practice starts at 5pm, I was able to put it in the calendar, but the soccer game starts at 5:15 on the same day, and it would not let me add it). Maybe I need to delete and reinstall but loosing everything I’ve already put in is a giant pain. Maybe I’m doing something wrong??? If the above proves to be the case, I give this app 0 stars.
Love better than Cozi, but I wish...
by LMT LE on 2019/09/22 11:56
I’ve used Cozi for a couple of years and then switched to FamCal. Love FamCal. It’s great for color coding schedules, organizing birthdays, anniversaries, grocery lists and various To-Do lists. FamCal is great for immediate syncing too. However, what could make this app even better is if I could reprioritize my To-Do lists (instead of having any new list I make be at the bottom, I’d love to be able to drag them to whatever placement I need them on my last). I’d also wish that Siri could recognize this app instead of just thinking I have no appointments today because they are not on my iPhone colander app (that originally comes on the phone).
Any other...
by GeminiFatCat on 2021/01/04 17:18
I haven’t found any other calendar online that can handle the number of appointments this family has. There are 4 people in my little family and we stay home most of the time because of Covid-19. However when we have appointments we go in different directions to do different things all on the same day, so it seems. This calendar keeps us on track and on time. It’s easy to use, just schedule your appointment, then before you put your device away log it in and you’re set. If I can do it you can too. Bonus!!! It’s free!!! YAY
Great way to sinc multiple schedules
by ocdworkingmomof3 on 2020/06/04 02:07
We were struggling to merge our family’s schedules on paper and also tried a different app that just wasn’t working. FamCal is perfect!! User friendly, sends alerts, color coated for quick glance recognition, and is simply essential to our family operating like a well oiled machine. My husband and I both have complicated work schedules that we add into the app. Then with three kids between 4-15 yrs old, we are able to add in appointments, school priorities, and sports/extra curricular activities. I highly recommend FamCal! Oh, and it’s free with a few advertisements.
Love it!
by Mchase1987 on 2020/07/06 10:43
It syncs with my calendar (google and Apple). I can add multiple shopping lists and move items between them. I can have multiple to do lists that are labeled how I want them. The “Today” screen shows what’s on the calendar for today and all off my to do lists and shopping lists. We can share this with multiple family members with a shared password and our separate own emails. And this is the free version! There are ads. It makes it a little inconvenient when typing out your lists, but I will definitely buy the app to get more of the perks.
Efficient family organization
by tgreene2312 on 2020/01/19 19:11
This app will change your family’s organization and efficiency. It cuts down on the amount of ‘remember to do this’ conversations and allows anyone to add items to shopping lists and to always have your lists with you, plus see all events at a glance across family members. I can’t speak highly enough about this apps’ features for only $25 a year. When used by all family members and across multiple families, we seamlessly keep track of grocery lists across multiple stores, to do lists, and events.
Pretty good
by redmeg1229 on 2018/04/28 03:27
Overall the app is nice, it is aesthetically pleasing and is like most of the family organizing apps. I have downloaded a few to see which I liked best. Sadly this wasn’t the winner. Pros: I really like the calendar view for this one and the fact that the I pad version isn’t just a pixilated version of the phone app. Cons: the one thing that gave this app second place is I like being able to assign my to-do tasks a specific day, for example I would like to be able to make a to-do task that repeats monthly or bi-weekly, I would also like to be able to set the task for the week to plan out the week instead of it being a calendar event.
Too many ads and now with sound before you can do anything!
by too many add- deleting this! on 2020/11/08 14:07
Free version-We have been using this app for a few years and was mostly great. My husband couldn’t get it to sync with his other calendar so didn’t use it much. I enjoyed it but am now deleting it. Every time I try to add or view an event or item, an ad pops up! Was dealing with that but now the ads have sound and you have to listen!! I understand you have to make money but this is too much! Takes too much time to add an item and I easily forget what I am adding by the time the ad is over. And to have to deal with that at the grocery store when trying to view list to shop is so annoying! Ugh!!!

Be better if monthly opened instead of daily
Never miss another appointment or ballgame
by SweerNell on 2021/01/13 17:10
Great app, keeps us updated with appointments, ballgames, vacations of twelve people. Without this calendar I would miss appointments and other family activities, I just don’t know how I would keep up with everything I need to attend or take one of our greats to games or appointments.
Awesome app!
by GodzGirl27 on 2021/01/13 16:53
I love this app and the fact that it’s free is a plus! Easy to use too.

I enjoy this calendar because it is the first one I have downloaded and actually continued to use because it is simple and easy to sync with my husband as well to view and add stuff.
Great except...
by The Busy Bees on 2021/01/13 15:06
This app is great for keeping track of our family things. The only issue we have (since my husband and are connected on the app) is that our lists don’t sync very quickly. It could be a couple of hours or up to a day before they update. It makes it hard for us to make shopping plans.
Lost Boy
by austin's wonder on 2021/01/13 14:13
Family calendar is a great organizing tool. Helps coordinate daily comings and going’s, good reminder tool, handles multiple shopping lists, to do lists. Great for keeping us on time and headed in the right direction
Reminders

Keeps my schedule handy
Awesome App
by Hobo Wilson on 2021/01/13 04:07
Positives-It’s very easy to use, straight forward configurations, and user-friendly. Negatives- I would want the next update to improve in the area of adding an event automatically (either from your Apple or Android calendar or the App) versus adding the event than individually sharing it to your family (because this is the only way everyone can see who added an event)
Love the app
by Lima1977777 on 2021/01/13 03:42
This app is great!! Being able to look at the family calendar and know where and what everyone is doing is so great!!
Great app.
by violetnurs on 2021/01/13 01:52
We use this app for our appointments and our shopping lists it works great, we put the initial of the store in before the item and can go to several stores on one outing.
Love this app
by jwaldro on 2021/01/13 00:34

Made Me Switch From Paper
by mpollock91 on 2021/01/12 02:35
I LOVE this app. It does everything my paper planner could (color codes, to-do lists, grocery lists, etc). But it has the benefit of always being with me. My husband also can see the family calendar from his phone. Would highly recommend!
Good app. Helps our family greatly
by Davefrombmi on 2021/01/12 02:31
Easy to use and great for organizing.
Okay app, could be better
by mpb12334 on 2021/01/12 01:21
Would be nice to have option to automatically “share event with family”, instead of having to always go in and edit every single event to share with other family members. Also find that if I move the date of an event within Apple calendar it will create a new event on that date in FamCal as well as keeping the original event and date; annoying to have to go back into FamCal and delete original and “share with family” the ‘new’ date event.
Great organizer!

I dislike that it doesn’t load a day or month upon opening but a menu screen. Also have lots of trouble keeping accounts connected. Reminders don’t work.

No one forgets to write events when they use their phones! The paper calendar and paper grocery list were never as accessible. Anyone in the household who goes to the supermarket buys what's on the list. My son took care of a mega list the other day and he was actually proud!
Super easy to use!

Use for bills and events with my husband everyday
by lumagooster on 2021/01/09 13:40
My husband adds when he has things to do during the month. We also add bills and when they are due. I like that you can make lists and grocery list and that you can make a reminder for an event. I also love that I get notified when my husband adds anything to the calendar or lists
Fantastic App!
by straton12 on 2021/01/09 12:25
This is probably my most favorite app I have. Extremely useful and well organized. Can’t beat having a calendar to do list and shopping list shared through the family. I no longer have missed an appointment and enjoy using it. I wouldn’t use any other calendar app. It has everything we need. They make periodic updates that are functional and make sense.
Love the calendar
by 4Him&Him4u on 2021/01/09 03:41
I love the calendar, just would love to highlight certain things to stand out more, especially when I have more than 1 thing scheduled on the same day.

by moriahjade on 2018/08/12 18:42
I am a 27 year old that was paralyzed 6 years ago. This app is perfect for me and my family because I can add a grocery list so if they are at the store- they can see I need eggs and grab be some without even having to call or text. Which I get so many of those a day it just makes my life easier. There’s also a calendar so no one forgets events (or mom-in-law sees that it’s my fiancé and I’s anniversary and know he’s being cared for even if he doesn’t answer his phone). His mom also loves the memo app where I can add our pictures that I don’t think should go on Facebook, but want family to see. Eliminates group text (as my parents are divorced so I have to send everything separately... but not now!! They can just sign in and see what I’m up to! Everyone can comment - giving my family and fiancés family a chance to get to know each other. It’s fantastic. I wish I could edit and create my own dashboard (editing what shows up first to my liking) which would be a neat idea. But it’s an amazing app exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you.
Great App for Families
by belkins87 on 2019/04/16 17:15
My wife and I tried a few years ago to share calendars and could not find an app that worked for us. My wife found this app and having it has made tracking each other's schedules so much easier. There are only a few things I don't like about the app that may improve with future updates if they choose to incorporate them. 1) Holidays listed: there are some holidays listed that I have never heard of and don't need to see on my calendar. My options are to leave them or turn them all off and manually add in the ones I want which I don't want to have to do. 2) No way to interface with a computer: My work calendar is tied to Outlook on my work computer. It would be nice to have the ability to add items (work or otherwise) to my FamCal calendar from a computer rather than punching it in on my phone. More a minor inconvenience. 3) Status for events: Sometimes it would be nice to note a meeting or possible event without being shown as committed to it. The best way to explain this would be to compare it to the options in Outlook where you can "Show As:" Free, Busy, Tentative. There are times my wife has events on the calendar that she wants to see but isn't actually going or hasn't decided. Other than these minor items we like the app and plan to keep using and recommend it for other families.
So far, so good 👍🏽
by Chris51509 on 2018/02/02 14:20
I keep a separate personal calendar because the one that came with the iPhone has my work connected to it. So I never want to put personal items on it. My old personal calendar no longer worked with iOS 11. Until I started searching new calendars, it didn’t dawn on me that I could get one to share with my husband and possibly kids. This is great! My husband and I share the grocery shopping, etc., so it’s awesome to have list that we can both add to and subtract from. And being able to see each other‘s appointments etc. is great. This is a great tool for any family! I can imagine how good this calendar would have been when my kids were a little younger with all the activities and sports! Having the wall calendar in the kitchen is OK, but this is with us at all times! So far this has been easy to use and more than suits our needs! I have not experienced any bugs are issues.
Great way to share info
by CT901 on 2019/06/29 17:51
It’s best to add your kids (those who are old enough of course, they WILL need an email address) to this wonderful app. Everyone is able to update the calendar with information (work, trips, games, important dates, doctor/dentist appointments, etc.) and the shopping lists (of which you can create MULTIPLE lists!) which is beyond useful. One of the very best parts? Put something in YOUR calendar on your phone...it automatically imports the data, no duplicate entry needed! I’m enjoying everyone in my house being in ‘the know’ and being able to see what is added over the course of a business day without unnecessary texts. I especially like not coming home from work or the store only to hear that we needed something or someone has somewhere urgently to go. If it's not on one of the lists or in the calendar...there is genuinely no one to blame.
The Perfect Family Calendar
by Kayla in MS on 2019/01/16 21:52
This calendar is terrific! As a mom, I can put my schedule on it, my husband can put his on it, and my kids can put theirs on it all on one calendar on each persons device with one email/password. It is amazing. As soon as someone adds a new event, the calendar automatically syncs across all of our devices so a glance at any time will show whats going on. We all have our own assigned colors. Planning any family event just got way way easier. The only thing i havnt tried is assigning a picture to each person in addition to their own color. It would be neat if the picture could show up next to their event. Maybe its possible, dont know... havnt tried it. This calendar beats ALL of the others I have tried. Its a simple input... so my 60 year old mother can operate it as well as my 7 year old child. Try it! U wont be disappointed!!
5 star best app!!!

People ask me how do I stay organized with all the things I do and between 2 businesses that I run. So I show them my FamCal app and briefly explain how it works and quickly show them how I book an appointment, Set a reminder alarm and that’s it. They immediately download the free app and get started just like I did. It’s easy no glitches it’s free and I thought I could never get away from writing my schedule down in the one of those little calendar books that I would keep in my purse. Thank you for making it so easy and teaching me to use my cell phone for all my scheduling and reminder needs. PS my business partner and I share a calendar and my husband and I share another. We love how we can color coordinate appointments, from business to free time stuff as well as we each have our own designated color.
FamCal helped our family!
by PeaskiFam on 2020/07/11 05:32
I’d like to think we’ve been using this app for 1.5 years now; I’d have to go back and look to be more specific. There are 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens. My husband works 2 full-time fire dept jobs, I work in sales and also take college courses online. Both of our kids have activities or dr appts happening every week! This literally has been the most effective calendar for our family where we can all input different events happening or even just add to the grocery list. The best part about it is having it on our phones! Calendars at home only help when we’re at home and able to view it. With this we can view our schedules at any given time. Can’t say enough good things about the effectiveness and how helpful it’s been to allow our family to coordinate with one another. Thank you!
Friends are Family
by Meggg122 on 2019/01/11 15:48
You don’t have to have kids to use this app. My friends are my family and we use this and it’s been GREAT! My group of friends and I were always frustrated trying to make plans with each other for upcoming weekends and such without knowing everyone else’s schedules. We’re a very tight knit group of friends who like to regularly hang out and make more long term plans like concerts or events and stuff. I did some research, found this app and had everyone download it and it’s been FANTASTIC. If we’re looking to hang out or make plans we just check the calendar on the app and see if anyone has plans already. It took a while to get everyone to start updating the calendar regularly with when they are busy but now we actually have fun with it! We put things on there like movie or video game release dates. It really is great.
Great tool for teens & moms together

My daughter is in High school AP classes and on 2 swim teams, so time is a precious asset. She didn’t use the hard copy planners (yes, we tried many), but since she ALWAYS has her phone, we tried this app. It is perfect for seeing her HW via the to do list and all the exams, tutorials, quizzes, swim practices, etc. on the calendar. I don’t have to ask what’s done or when she has to be at school early - I just look at FamCal. She likes checking off her homework and seeing that item disappear or strike out text. We really like this app!! My suggestion for improvement: when adding items to the calendar, please add a recurring date option that’s not just daily, weekly or monthly. Ex: swim practice alternates every other day so being able to choose random dates for one calendar item would be great.
Used to be fantastic
by Clarecoll on 2020/09/24 18:17
This app used to be fantastic but a couple months ago they updated how they did the ads and now it’s more of a pain than anything else. I have to watch video ads in the middle of the grocery store to check my list about every 3 items and half the time the ads don’t have a close button so I have to exit the app, reopen it and then rewatch an ad to get back to my list. The same goes for making a list, every few items I add I have to wait through a video ad. It didn’t used to be like that and we loved it. It was great for sharing calendars and keeping track of the kids. I considered purchasing the full version to get rid of the ads but it’s too expensive when there are other apps available that do the same thing for half the price. Plus it feels like they are trying to force my hand with the increase in ads which does not make me want to give them any money.
Very useful
by Mymysmom on 2018/10/01 19:45
Not a complicated app at all. It's the only organizer type that I've ever actually made use of. Normally I download a bunch of them in the hope that I will finally find one that clicks and isn't too complicated or too boring. I agreed to try this with my husband because we never know what each other is doing so the calendar has been very helpful. The to-do list is great because I can finally show him what a ridiculous amount of stuff I need to do and get him to share the load. Shopping list is a plus. Other features too but it's really a pretty good start to organizing your family- as much as possible. Plus, I have ADHD as does my husband and this has helped keep me dialed in to what's happening because normally I forget a lot!
Mostly love it
by 7 together on 2020/01/28 03:03
I love how you can use this across family members. Works great for multiple people. We used to use the standard apple calendar app but everyone else hated getting notified of every event being added to the calendar and inviting people to events with email would not work. Fam cal makes it easy to see who’s going where and when and just notify that person. Better than google calendar on the alert side. Lists- awesome how everyone can add stuff to them at any time. Negatives - ads.. annoying - pop ups and they block the bottom row of info Switching between days is challenging. On the day view you can see yours list but not on the calendar view. You also cant zoom in on the just day unless you go to the other view. (It shows the entire month) Everyone can see all items on the calendar. So if you have a private event, you have to rename it or not put it on the calendar, even though you can select who is going to it. Doesnt work well with apple watch. You have to have your phone to look at most of the stuff and it doesnt update to the current day unless you close the app and restart it. No way to edit users names after you enter them the first time unless you delete the person and make a new one.
Just what we needed 👍🏻
by trazelosaurus07 on 2018/07/18 02:50
My fiancé and I are trying to keep our eating out to a certain capped amount. We had ordered a tangible desk calendar, hung it on the wall, and the idea was to write down every time we went out to eat and how much we spent. We wanted to keep the tallies fair, and we wanted to shock ourselves by the gross amount of $ spent at restaurants. We figured if it was right in our faces we’d be more accountable. Well, best laid plans and all. We’d forget to write it down more than half the time because we’d be out when the charges occurred. Or we’d forget to write down who bought so we’d know whose turn it was next time. Now we can make an event as soon as the bill comes, color coded by person. The other great features of to-do lists and shopping lists are just bonuses.
FamCal has been a life saver!!
by BirdRanch on 2020/07/14 05:22
Being a high school coach, rancher, book keeper for our family business, wife and mom of 2 middle school athletes and an active 5 year old.... this app has saved my sanity these past 2 months. I was looking for a way to track my own games, my kids games, PT appointments, 4-H schedule and our hunters booking hunts and went through a few apps and FamCal has gotten my vote and just been a life saver. As hunters text wanting to book a hunt I can look right away in FamCal and tell them right away instead of having to wait until I get back home to the calendar on my wall. Plus my husband and daughter can both see the calendar and any of us can add an event on there when we need to! So helpful!!!! Definitely recommend!!!!!!

by Abso1ut3 Zero on 2018/07/07 22:33
This app has made life a lot easier for my wife and I. We have three young kids, and it helps keep all our appointments and such in order with each other and our grandmother. I don’t remember if I paid for the app, but having used it for nearly 2 months, I would pay for it. The ease of sharing appointments between multiple family members is a must. As soon as any family member enters the appointment info, it updates on all family members who use the app. It sends a push notification to the device of the appointment. It’s a must have!!! Update: I have been using this app for about 6 months, and we have added the grandparents to the app. This is a great app and a must have for people who make plans or have a busy lifestyle.
Great family calendar
by krshrwd on 2018/06/27 14:57
I like how my whole family has access to the same calendar. I also like that we can all put our separate schedules on there as well. The only suggestions to improve the app would be small personalization ideas. I use another calendar app where I can change color of the days (such as the days I get paid), syncing my calendar with google (to save my info in case the app were to freeze or crash), defaulting my calendar as my home page rather than being brought to the main menu & changing fonts. Those are just a few of my many ideas. If this calendar had all those features I’d only use this calendar app. But for now this & Jorte are my two favorite calendar apps!
My “everything” app! I
by LDM37 on 2020/06/30 17:04
Best shared app I’ve every had! 😉 All four of us in my family use the FamCal app. We love the color coded dots on the calendar to keep our very busy family organized! All of us can see the app in real time so it’s easy to check what is on the calendar when making plans for events/meetings/ parties/ practices/ vacations/ etc., with a quick glance! We also LOVE the shared shopping list! Anytime one of the kids runs out of something, they just add it to the list! That was it’s not forgotten if mom or dad or sad run to the store alone. The memos are great to for noting quick notes or to save important like snap a quick pic of an address... Or if someone makes and appointment for another family member, they can set a reminder! We literally function around then FamCal app! Best app I have seen on all platforms! :) We have used the free version for a long time and never had an issue! Not once! Our youngest child of 7 years can also login and add things to the shopping list. It’s very easy to use and as I mentioned it’s all in real time! If you’re here reading reviews to find the best app to organize yourself or family, you should try this!
Great way to keep family connected
by Not Yo Average Momma on 2019/09/03 13:49
If you have a big family and like to know what direction everyone is going, this is the app for you, especially if you have several active teenagers like myself. Each member of the home has a color, so just a quick glance at the calendar, helps to determine who’s event is scheduled. It also sends alerts to everyone, just mom, or whoever you choose. Another great feature is the option for everyone to add to the grocery list. Members are able to add notes and send reminders as well. This app is easy to navigate and understand, even for a simple un-technological mind like mine. Five stars for sure, definitely recommend! Shout out to this company for making mom life manageable!!
So far so good
by Purple123! on 2018/03/21 00:07
I am really likening this app, I haven’t shared with the other parent yet but it’s an easy way to keep track of things. I have a complicated parenting time schedule with so many changes and I keep Callender all over the house my purse my car and this has eliminated most of them! I can easily check things and not worry about losing all of my information. It was easy to put my schedule in and include my mom who often watches my daughter can check who’s picking up and dropping off and get an idea of the time. This is a wonderful option for people who have a lot of people involved in your child’s life. No waiting for a response or worry that you didn’t provide the write times and dates. It’s all there and handy!
Best Shared calendar and list App
by Jojok49 on 2020/07/05 21:24
This app is AMAZING!! I have tried a handful of different shared calendar and schedule apps, and this is by far the best I’ve ever encountered. When it comes to organizing a household schedule, between my husband and occasional roommates, I couldn’t hope for something better. This app has also been exceptionally useful in maintaining grocery lists, household supply lists, and more. I’ve started using it even for my personal scheduling, as I find it preferable to any of the regular calendars I’ve used.I would absolutely recommend this app for anyone who wants a single place to keep track of their lists, schedules, mammals, and more, weather just with themselves or with their roommates or families.
Great
by drewhester22 on 2018/09/02 19:33
Been using it with my girlfriend. We are both going to separate schools hour away. I have classes, track, rotc , and army reserve commitment. She also has school, research, and two jobs. So we are both very busy. This app has been vital in allowing us to plan and invest in each other too. Helps us keep track of each other’s schedules. As well as, keep emergency contacts Of eAchothers in the case of something wrong. Love that the events can be joint or that you can hide events from the others if necessary. That way you can keep a surprise secret without needing a deifferent calendar. I might not be familiar enough. But I’m wanting more push notifications. Apart from that. I love this app. It’s a big help.
Excellent app...and it’s free!
by BeNicole05 on 2018/06/26 23:30
This app has helped my family tremendously. We were using google calendar for work and other items, but that calendar became clogged. This app will import items from google, but also allows us to schedule social events quickly. Tech support responded promptly to the one issue we had. I appreciate having the grocery list that is shared. I can easily text my husband and ask him to pick up items and he can see the list and check the item off. The family to do list is excellent as well. I realize that there are other apps out there that might be better, but they come at an expense. We have encouraged many of our friends to try this app.
Perfect for families!
by Bumblebee825 on 2020/05/26 20:11
I have been using this app for years now and it has worked so well with my family! It’s a shared calendar so my husband and I have been able to stay on the same page with our kid’s school events, appointments, work schedule, etc. My husband is not one to look at paper calendars but he checks this calendar often on his phone to see if there is any events planned especially school events and appointments. We both work so our work schedules are plotted on the calendar reminding me not to schedule myself to work on the day he is working so I can be with the kids instead of finding a babysitter. This app has been amazing! 👌
Great!
by Darian F. on 2019/07/10 00:44
My mom and dad are divorced and they are always confused on what’s happening. So I decided to look at apps so we can be more organized. I found this app and I told my mom to download it and I would help her figure it out. Once our whole family knew what the app was and we had most of all of our events in the calendar, we were so organized and my whole family said the app was great, which it was. The only problem I have with the app was having to pay for things that were really easy to do. Since our family is VERY big, it takes a pretty long time to get all the birthdays into the calendar, so you have to pay to import all the birthdays into the calendar. Other than that the app was pretty great!
Organized and Involved
by livinthejeepdream on 2019/03/31 20:19
This app is awesome to keep my schedule and my boyfriend’s organized! It helps us to both know what events are going on and when so we don’t have to constantly ask each other what’s going on this weekend. I work at three different hospitals and one is two hours away, he works and is in a band, and we both have very involved families. This app helps us make it to all the important stuff we need to be at, as well as know which hospital I’m supposed to be at during the week. That way we’re both organized, there is less miscommunication, and we both stay involved in making the schedule not just one persons stuff.
Great family planner!
by Allen W Thomsen on 2018/12/31 22:32
My wife and kids use FamCal all the time to keep track of each other’s schedule. We have a shopping list so that any time one of us picks an item up we check it off in FamCal and it updates across our group immediately. That feature alone is worth having the app, but the app is capable of so much more. Scheduling an outing with the family is hard to do but in FamCal we can look at everybody's schedule and pick a day or evening and boom! We love FamCal. It’s easy to use, it doesn’t have glitches, and it’s been helping our family stay organized for over 2 years now. I hope this review helps someone decide to try it!
Best Shared Calendar
by Kalimarissag on 2018/09/26 15:45
I rarely go as far to write reviews, but I’m both an organizational and design freak who has searched a long time for a family shared calendar- I have taken my entire family through 3 or 4 other big apps, paying for all subscriptions, and this is the absolute best one on the App Store. It’s clean, incredibly easy to sort through, and the “week” view option makes it a breeze to manage, sort through and work around the exact times of events shared between 5 people. The widget could be easier to see but it is a far, far superior app to the others-and no cheesy PowerPoint graphics, painful fonts or ugly layouts 😁
Pretty good
by Loving it! :))) By me on 2017/11/26 16:37
I enjoy this app. I got it so my husband and I could know what was happening in each other's lives. It's helped a lot. My issue with it though is the set duration doesn't have a set duration that works for jobs. I use this calendar most to put my work schedule in and it's annoying to have to constantly change the start time and the end time. Because my schedule is always changing I can't do a recurring event. It would be really nice to have a duration that I can set for 8 and a half hours so that I only have to change the start time and the end time will automatically populate. In any other calendar app that I've used it's either been "trained" for lack of a better word, or it remembers time frames so that it becomes easier after a few inputs. It would be great if that was something that could be added.
Keeping our family on track!
by Luedtkebear01 on 2020/12/26 13:55
This app is great for keeping my family on track. We jot down appointments, meetings, and events on the calendar so we know what is going on each day. The list function is a God send as well. We keep our grocery list there and since the app is shareable my husband or I can do the grocery shopping when the time is convenient because we both have the list! The only thing that I have noticed that I don’t particularly like is if I add something to the grocery list and my husband goes that same day the item does not show up on his list. It’s inconvenient and somewhat annoying but not enough to make me stop using the app altogether. Thanks! Alaina
Two Households: Almost Perfect!
by cheresec on 2018/06/28 16:40
I have been searching for a shared calendar that can accommodate our needs for two households with children. We use this app to share the children’s doctor appointments, sport schedules, school flyers and it also houses important contacts. For example, we are about to go out of state with the children and I have put an asterisk next to all of the adults that will be traveling with us during that week in case we are unable to be reached for emergencies. This allows the children’s mother to have easy access in an organized location. One thing I would love to see in a future update is: * Allow images and clickable links to be added to events that are viewable from the home screen when the events are occurring. (Hope this makes sense!) The app is almost perfect for our needs. I’ve been searching for one that was appropriate for a situation like ours that didn’t feel purely for one household. It has helped communications immensely. I am also still figuring out how to receive notifications when others add events to the calendar but I’m still new to the app.
Love the list functionality of this app!
by Bsjur on 2020/09/06 17:16
I have been using this app for a few years now. I originally installed it to share kids activity calendars but love the list functionality! I’m a list person. :) I keep lists for grocery and household items. My kids all have the app and access to the lists. If someone needs shampoo or toothpaste they add it to the list. If they want something from the grocery store they add it to the list. We’ve used it for packing lists for trips and moves to college. Most recently I started using it birthday and Christmas gift ideas. The kids can add items to their lists as they come up with ideas.
Great app
by kendall1717 on 2018/01/31 14:35
Love this app. It’s great for families that are always on the go like mine. So much you can do and link with other apps. The one down fall I have is that if you set for only 2 out of the 4 or however many in your family everyone can still see that. In most cases that’s not a bad thing but we have 2 children that go to other homes and not that the other parents look but they can. I would recommend for an upgrade to be when you put something in only have it show for that person or be able to control what is seen for each person. Such as an administrator or manager for each person.
Very useful app!
by Rhiannon778 on 2018/01/25 21:41
I needed something to keep my family up on doctor appointments, planned outings and what not. My husband is an OTR Driver so it’s hard for him to keep up and remember things since he doesn’t have daily access to our wall calendar at home. I found this app and decided to give it a try. So far, it is working out great! I can set events for and notify specific people or all, save birthday’s to remember, have it remind me hours/days/week in advance of the event, etc. My husband gets the notifications, so he knows what is going on. This has helped us so much!! I highly recommend this app to anyone who needs to be organized.
Mom, wife, and teacher
by shepherd94 on 2020/12/26 23:44
Love FamCal despite the frequent ads. This is so helpful for our busy lifestyle and large family including teenagers with schedules they forget to tell us about! It helps us keep everyone’s schedules straight as well as grabbing quick things from the grocery list without doubling up on items or having to text each other lists. I love it! The “To Do List” feature is also great!—it’s fun to have pretty much all my organizational tools in one place. The ads in the free version are getting a little too much lately, though. They pop up every time I open the app and won’t let me close out of them to use the app for at least 5-10 seconds.
Easy to use & superb customer service!
by Drhofer on 2018/11/22 15:32
You guys, you must use this app. I am a paper and pencil calendar girl, but let’s face it we can’t always have our calendars with us. I tried the iCal, I’ve tried google, I’ve tried others and they just aren’t easy to manage. This app is the answer. It is easy to use across platforms and multiple devices. Last night I thought I lost everything because it appeared my account was messed up. I emailed the company and they literally responded and resolved the issue immediately with no data lost. Excellent service on top of an excellent product always has me calling it a win!
Excels where others don’t
by Ryandun101 on 2018/10/23 16:45
This app is exactly what I have been looking for. I take care of an elderly parent and this helps keep my days in order...not to mention my life. With the ability to create customs lists I can creat things todo for every day and shopping lists that I take with me while running errand in the errands list. It keeps track of doctor appointments and medications lists and so many other things that I need on a daily basis. I have tried other shared calendars but this seems to be the best and the least frustrating. I highly recommend this app to anyone who needs to organize their life and family.
Love it so far, but want some things it doesn’t have
by curtmeli on 2019/03/18 00:31
This app is awesome. Especially because you can access all of it for FREE! I was expecting something I had to pay for eventually, but no, it’s all free. I refused to pay for the family scheduling apps that cost an arm and a leg. I love everything about this app, but I wish it had more. I would love a recipe feature, and a meal planning feature. But, maybe that’s why it’s free. I still use it for this, it’s just a bit harder than it would be if it was a real feature. I have never written a review for an app, but this one really is great. So glad I found it!
Great App - Would Benefit From An Assign Function
by StephanieAgatha on 2020/05/17 17:31
Let me just say, I love this app. Coming from a household with several unorganized adults, it makes organizing shopping + important announcements very simple and clear. The ONLY complaint I have is I wish there was a way to “assign” chores. Like, have an option for a chores list + get to assign these tasks to different family members. You can kind of do this with memos, but it would be great if it could actually assign, so that individuals would get phone reminders/notifications to finish their chores. Otherwise, I find this app to be comprehensive and easy to use for all of our family members. Definitely worth getting + using!
Great app, until it stops working right. Customer service is silent.
by Laurainjuly on 2020/08/19 01:10
Update: took two days to hear back from customer service, by then we had fixed it by doing the tech support 101 answer of logging out and logging back in & restarting phone. Hopefully this bug doesn’t happen again. I wrote the below feedback to customer service and still haven’t heard back. So glad this subscription just renewed for a year, when my bid and and I can’t see each other’s updates correctly. What the heck? I bought this app so my husband and I can share calendars and to-do lists. However, recently we can’t see each other’s and collaborate, even on shared to-do lists. We can see activity updates from notification screen but when we try and access that to-do list we get the attached error: “This list has not been downloaded yet. Please wait a moment” and then nothing happens. Is this a known bug that is being fixed? Please help troubleshoot why we can’t see each other’s shared to-do lists anymore. Thank you!
Love it
by Finnaly something that works on 2018/01/08 05:35
This app has everything I was looking for but had not asked for. I was looking for something easy that my 11 year old son and I could use. I was also looking for a memo app and grocery list app. When I saw this had the format I was looking for I was happy but when I saw they has a shopping list and a memo list and a to do list that were all shareable I was thrilled. Sold!!!! We can all function as one while keeping our independence. My son doesn't have to call me to ask me what he needs to do. I don't have to worry that i will go to the store and come home to realize i forgot the milk. love it!
Almost Perfect
by Nebraska born on 2018/11/05 20:42
So far I love everything about this app. I use I for home and my business (all in one) so my family can see what’s going on. I like that we as parents can control what we want our kids to see or not see on the calendar. Love the shopping list and that everyone can see them and they update so that when we are at the store and something gets added that item can be bought at that time without a phone call being made. ***Id like to see that there be an option to add things to the calendar on a bi-weekly, 1st week, 2nd week, 3rd week, 4th week basis. These are all instances that have to be added manually at this time 😕
Not good for multiple kids/events at the same time
by #tiredparents on 2019/10/09 16:03
After looking at several calendar apps, I chose this one and paid $24 to upgrade for the entire year.... what a waste of money. It won’t let me add multiple events on some of the days, others it will. I have two children in sports and I was hoping I would be able to keep track of everything on here but it will not let me schedule 2 events at the same time or in a close time slot (For example, volleyball practice starts at 5pm, I was able to put it in the calendar, but the soccer game starts at 5:15 on the same day, and it would not let me add it). Maybe I need to delete and reinstall but loosing everything I’ve already put in is a giant pain. Maybe I’m doing something wrong??? If the above proves to be the case, I give this app 0 stars.
Love better than Cozi, but I wish...
by LMT LE on 2019/09/22 11:56
I’ve used Cozi for a couple of years and then switched to FamCal. Love FamCal. It’s great for color coding schedules, organizing birthdays, anniversaries, grocery lists and various To-Do lists. FamCal is great for immediate syncing too. However, what could make this app even better is if I could reprioritize my To-Do lists (instead of having any new list I make be at the bottom, I’d love to be able to drag them to whatever placement I need them on my last). I’d also wish that Siri could recognize this app instead of just thinking I have no appointments today because they are not on my iPhone colander app (that originally comes on the phone).
Any other...
by GeminiFatCat on 2021/01/04 17:18
I haven’t found any other calendar online that can handle the number of appointments this family has. There are 4 people in my little family and we stay home most of the time because of Covid-19. However when we have appointments we go in different directions to do different things all on the same day, so it seems. This calendar keeps us on track and on time. It’s easy to use, just schedule your appointment, then before you put your device away log it in and you’re set. If I can do it you can too. Bonus!!! It’s free!!! YAY
Great way to sinc multiple schedules
by ocdworkingmomof3 on 2020/06/04 02:07
We were struggling to merge our family’s schedules on paper and also tried a different app that just wasn’t working. FamCal is perfect!! User friendly, sends alerts, color coated for quick glance recognition, and is simply essential to our family operating like a well oiled machine. My husband and I both have complicated work schedules that we add into the app. Then with three kids between 4-15 yrs old, we are able to add in appointments, school priorities, and sports/extra curricular activities. I highly recommend FamCal! Oh, and it’s free with a few advertisements.
Love it!

It syncs with my calendar (google and Apple). I can add multiple shopping lists and move items between them. I can have multiple to do lists that are labeled how I want them. The “Today” screen shows what’s on the calendar for today and all off my to do lists and shopping lists. We can share this with multiple family members with a shared password and our separate own emails. And this is the free version! There are ads. It makes it a little inconvenient when typing out your lists, but I will definitely buy the app to get more of the perks.
Efficient family organization

This app will change your family’s organization and efficiency. It cuts down on the amount of ‘remember to do this’ conversations and allows anyone to add items to shopping lists and to always have your lists with you, plus see all events at a glance across family members. I can’t speak highly enough about this apps’ features for only $25 a year. When used by all family members and across multiple families, we seamlessly keep track of grocery lists across multiple stores, to do lists, and events.
Pretty good

Overall the app is nice, it is aesthetically pleasing and is like most of the family organizing apps. I have downloaded a few to see which I liked best. Sadly this wasn’t the winner. Pros: I really like the calendar view for this one and the fact that the I pad version isn’t just a pixilated version of the phone app. Cons: the one thing that gave this app second place is I like being able to assign my to-do tasks a specific day, for example I would like to be able to make a to-do task that repeats monthly or bi-weekly, I would also like to be able to set the task for the week to plan out the week instead of it being a calendar event.
Too many ads and now with sound before you can do anything!

Free version-We have been using this app for a few years and was mostly great. My husband couldn’t get it to sync with his other calendar so didn’t use it much. I enjoyed it but am now deleting it. Every time I try to add or view an event or item, an ad pops up! Was dealing with that but now the ads have sound and you have to listen!! I understand you have to make money but this is too much! Takes too much time to add an item and I easily forget what I am adding by the time the ad is over. And to have to deal with that at the grocery store when trying to view list to shop is so annoying! Ugh!!!
