A huge help for my wife, our daughter and son-in-law who live with us and me. Keeps us up to date! Great app.... I use this app frequently to organize my action items. It’s been great over the last three years!!!
Keeps Family Informed.
by Drubbay on 2022/01/16 14:04
You’ll like the connection with this calendar. Everyone in your list can add events which you can be notified of. Still learning so I’m sure there’s more I’ve missed.
It works, one of the best apps around

The best! Have used this app for quite awhile and love it.
FamCal is the best!!!
by FaithMckenzie on 2022/01/13 03:19
We have a BIG busy family and we are constantly double booking ourselves because we are making appointments on the go and forget to write them down once we get home. With FamCal, we can open the app, enter the date, appt time, who it’s for and even notify my husband of the new appointment. We LOVE IT!!!

Great app for scheduling activities among family so all can see
Fantastic app.

I love the fact that my hubbie and I can shop together, check off items and not duplicate.

Keeps my family on the same page
by chasity0722 on 2022/01/11 16:20
I have night blindness so bad that I can't even drive in dim weather. With the calendar, my household, my mother and my brother can be on the same page and someone is available to help me get around or help with my kids when needed. The only thing I wish is that when I add an event to my iPhone calendar it would feed over to the calendar. I just end up putting it into both.
Best calendar app around
by TiffE2527 on 2022/01/11 15:38
Such an easy app to use. Keeps everyone in my family up to date on what our schedule entails every day. Easy to make changes to the schedule.
Love it!!
by Jbellio-Zubie on 2022/01/11 14:20
Wish I had this app when our kids were still at home to put in all their activities and they could share their plans. We are empty nesters and love using this so we can keep track of what’s going on!
Good Easy App

We have only been using FamCal for a week, but in that short amount of time it has become an invaluable tool. It keeps everyone informed and up to date on everything that is going on in our busy lives. No more confusion and miscommunication issues to worry about.

Love this app! Since my son started working, I have him update his work schedule (saves me time from putting it on the calendar 😉). Easy to use, highly recommend it for busy families.
One of the best apps

I like the many features that go with the calendar like the shopping list, the birthday list, etc. I like the way you can schedule daily and weekly activities. I like the Improvements that allow me to customize dates. I like to be able to set alert reminders. I like the grocery list feature. +++++
Family of 7 and I love it!!
by Palrendall on 2022/01/08 13:51
Super handy when you’re at the doctors’ office and the staff want you to make appointments 6 months from now, and I open the app and mark it in! I love the message reminders so I get everywhere in time too. Super helpful app!

Great Family App
by FlaGirl13 on 2022/01/07 19:00
This is a fun family calendar app, (everyone chooses their own color), and it’s an easy way (connected through each other’s email), to keep up w/one another’s schedules, including your adult kids. No more sticky notes, or checking your purse calendar, or waiting to ck your home calendar, when planning. Just put the event in the calendar, add address of appt or event, & notify some or all of those connected to your digital calendar about upcoming events. Great way to plan a surprise event! We love it❣️😁👊🏼😎👟🌺
Best app for family calendar available.

Easy to use and great for keeping our schedules straight. Love it!
Great at first, then flopped
by Audiophile T on 2022/01/07 13:30
We loved this at first, but it’s inconsistent with notifications. Even though it’s kept up to date, notifications don’t always come up. This has gone on for at least a year.
Best Calendar app!
by VikingMatt69 on 2022/01/07 12:05
This is by far the best calendar app I’ve ever had! It is flawless and easy to use.
Great app to help organize the family
by BD5454 on 2022/01/06 23:16
This app is great and it updates quickly between family members. I can be the store shopping and I will see items added that my wife thought of. I like how the calendar lets you choose who is attached to what event by color. Overall Great app.

I work in New York, so live there 4 days out of the week. My families home is in CT, 3 hours from New York. This calendar is a great way for us to keep track of things to do around the house from 2 locations.
Awesome
by Sugarplum@sunrise on 2022/01/05 19:36
I downloaded this app awhile back but never did anything with it! Now I use it daily! I am disabled and have memory loss so Day to Day is a huge task for me so I have added my Personal Assistant and Son with my future daughter-in-law so everyone can help me stay on track with all my appointments, shopping needs and personal notes that I need to remember! This app so four has met all expectations and more with reminders and such!
Great app to keep track of my roommate!
by Chick-a-dee1 on 2022/01/05 15:09
Being single females, my roommate and I feel that it’s important someone know where we are pretty much all the time. This app makes it very easy to see what is on her calendar, and she can see what is on mine.
Works for my family
by CaitlynRoe on 2022/01/05 13:26
My husband, son and I have been using this app for years now. Primarily we use it to have a shared grocery list. We also keep each other appraised for changes in work schedules, birthdays, to do lists. I like that we can have a couple different grocery lists going (such as a normal everyday one and a holiday one) as well as other shopping lists.
Excellent family calendar
by JenA.M. on 2022/01/05 12:29
Fits our busy family needs. I love the updates, use of color to personalize, ability to get alerts, and shared functionality
Great app to keep us all connected...

This is a perfect one-stop-shop for everything we need. It’s great sharing our calendars, shopping lists, and to-do lists. We work together better as a family because we are all on the same page. Love it!
Fast and Easy to use but….
by SogDHog on 2022/01/05 01:09
Our family searched and came across this app which has really helped us merge all our busy schedules onto one calendar. The app is fast and easy to use with caveat, the pop-up advertising often does so with volume on which can ruin a quiet moment or if you check your calendar during a meeting etc. I don’t mind the advertisement please leave didn’t volume muted and allow me to select if I want volume or not.
Great app
by Elle-Ayz on 2022/01/04 23:43
I think the app is great. I love that my husband and I can share a calendar, and to do lists in real time. I would love it if the to-do’s would have reminder options, but other than that I really think it is an awesome app

Used to love it; now, not so much
by Angelface_77 on 2022/01/04 10:10
iPhone calendar used to sync so I didn’t have to double-enter anything and grocery lists synced so either my partner or I would be assure not to miss anything. Now, nothing syncs right. I reached out to customer service and was told to delete and reinstall the app. I have done that countless times with no success. Now, customer service refuses to answer my pleas for help. I’m disappointed, to say the least.
Works great

It does take a little while to figure how - it’s not completely intuitive but my daughter and I really like it to keep us organized

Have been using this app since January and it works well for our hectic family. I wish there were more colors for designating events but we have made them work for the most part.
Great for teamwork!

It’s so helpful to share shopping lists and calendar events in one app
Widgets won't update until you open the app
by SneibMyuu on 2021/12/30 01:23
I use this to coordinate family events. It's okay, but the widgets won't update until you open the app. For example, we had an event today but it didn't show up on the widget. The widget said no events and only after I opened the app did the widget say that we had an event scheduled today.
Love so far!
by Geoffrey1326 on 2021/12/29 20:40
Finally getting the family organized!!
Perfect
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.
Family Calendar
by Bcbol on 2021/12/16 23:24
I love Family Calendar. I don’t know how I did without it before. This is my second year with it. Someone showed me how to transfer Birthdays from year to year. That’s just great. It’s my calendar bible. This is a year later. I live by my family calendar. I’d be lost with out it. A year later. I use my family calendar for everything . My husband and I are retired and constantly forget what day or date it is. I check it every day. I use it for appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, everything. As I said before I would be lost without it. I love having it. I’m still using my family calendar daily. It’s great to just pick up my phone and check the date. I would be lost without it. I am older and my memory isn’t as good as it used to be so this calendar really helps. As I’ve said before, it’s my social bible. It’s just great to have.
FamCal helped our family!
by PeaskiFam on 2021/03/16 17:38
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!
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.
Perfect for family
by lumagooster on 2021/12/24 16:59
I’ve been using this app for years. It helps keep our schedules organized and know what events have coming up especially when making appointments I just open FamCal and see the best day and time and it alerts other members immediately. You can also set alerts and add weekly biweekly monthly etc. I also make grocery list on it! You can check it and it grays out and you just uncheck it to add it back to the list so you only have to add once. I started out using it for when bills were due now I use it for appointments, reminders also for my pets medication monthly and even an alert every week to remind to set the garbage out! I basically use it for keeping track of everything in my life! And it really helps to ease my mind bc I enter whatever I need to immediately into the calendar
The Perfect Family Calendar

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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!!
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!
Best active family calendar!
by Jinman1018 on 2021/10/25 12:08
I’m a happy 2 year subscriber! With 2 kids having multiple extracurricular activities and a husband that travels, this calendar has been awesome at keeping everything in line. I love the color coding and ability to set reminders. It alerts me when my husband plugs something in so it’s great when he forgets to tell me he scheduled something. It can also set recurring events like sports practice with ease so nothing has to be individually added. I love having a combined shopping list so whoever stops at the store can check the list and grab items easily. It also auto imports our flights and hotel stays. They have thought of everything! It has been the most valuable app I pay for hands down.
Great way to keep family connected
by Not Yo Average Momma on 2021/07/23 15:36
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!!
Love FamCal
by BeeSanderlin on 2021/08/09 13:06
This is the only way I can get my husband to remember upcoming events. We never noticed how many times something would need to be planned/scheduled, but we wouldn’t be together to talk about upcoming events/appointments so this app has been a game changer! It’s so easy to use, and we love setting reminders to help us keep up with things. It’s definitely easy to use and read and very customizable. We use the shopping lists and actually use them! Before using the app I would make a list on paper and always forget to bring it to the store or it would end up lost in my purse. If you are looking for a a customizable, easy to use, multi-use app for organizing your life, I’d recommend FamCal 10/10 times.
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.
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!

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.
Best Shared calendar and list App
by Jojok49 on 2021/11/08 21:35
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, and more, whether just with themselves or with their roommates or families.
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!
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!
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! 👌
Love this App!
by JayJayBree on 2021/10/28 15:28
Easy to Use and Best Simple Calendar App, I’ve used thus far. No, expenses/costs No, Annoying Ads Everything Need in a Calendar *Reminders *Birthday Icons *High lights different colors for each Individual and per Event. *Future Dates Recorded (Yearly Etc; ) Easy way to Keep Each Family Member in the “Know and Remind” them without having to either doing it yourself, writing it down or forgetting something important. I LOVE the Added Feature that gives directions to where the location is. Then there’s NO QUESTIONS or having to either call/Google nor trying to figure it out as well as, remembering the date/function of what is going on!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Mom, wife, and teacher
by shepherd94 on 2021/12/20 20:44
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Great App - Would Benefit From An Assign Function
by StephMoody 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!
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 😁
Perfect app for our busy family life
by LSGrn on 2021/07/29 01:17
I love this app! My husband and I have been trying to figure out a way to keep our schedules on the same page and I am so thankful we found this. I work per diem and am always randomly picking up hours. He is able to know what I work so he knows when he is able to pick up any overtime. We have 4 kids and a busy schedule so being able to share our calendars has been so helpful! The only thing I have found so far that I wish it could do is being able to set something for a certain day of the week lasting only for a number of weeks. However, I would recommend this app to anyone.
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!
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.
Great way to sinc multiple schedules
by ocdworkingmomof3 on 2021/08/08 13:46
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.
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!
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.
Any other...
by GeminiFatCat on 2021/08/12 04:44
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
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.
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.
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!!!
It’s good but the forced ad-watching (with sound!) is infuriating.
by JJ@311 on 2020/08/09 20:46
I originally thought this app was awesome. It does everything I need. But then it started doing ads really frequently, sometimes playing video with sound, and I can’t close it for awhile. It defeats a lot of the value of quickly checking my list. It doesn’t even tell me how to pay to get rid of the ads. I’m debating stopping using the app because I’ll be in the grocery needing to quickly check off something and move to the next while a kid is trying to talk to me and some stupid ad starts to play and goes on for like 5 sec. it makes me want to scream.

Keeps Family Informed.
by Drubbay on 2022/01/16 14:04
You’ll like the connection with this calendar. Everyone in your list can add events which you can be notified of. Still learning so I’m sure there’s more I’ve missed.
It works, one of the best apps around

by FaithMckenzie on 2022/01/13 03:19
We have a BIG busy family and we are constantly double booking ourselves because we are making appointments on the go and forget to write them down once we get home. With FamCal, we can open the app, enter the date, appt time, who it’s for and even notify my husband of the new appointment. We LOVE IT!!!

Keeps my family on the same page
by chasity0722 on 2022/01/11 16:20
I have night blindness so bad that I can't even drive in dim weather. With the calendar, my household, my mother and my brother can be on the same page and someone is available to help me get around or help with my kids when needed. The only thing I wish is that when I add an event to my iPhone calendar it would feed over to the calendar. I just end up putting it into both.
Best calendar app around
by TiffE2527 on 2022/01/11 15:38
Such an easy app to use. Keeps everyone in my family up to date on what our schedule entails every day. Easy to make changes to the schedule.
Love it!!
by Jbellio-Zubie on 2022/01/11 14:20
Wish I had this app when our kids were still at home to put in all their activities and they could share their plans. We are empty nesters and love using this so we can keep track of what’s going on!
Good Easy App

We have only been using FamCal for a week, but in that short amount of time it has become an invaluable tool. It keeps everyone informed and up to date on everything that is going on in our busy lives. No more confusion and miscommunication issues to worry about.

I like the many features that go with the calendar like the shopping list, the birthday list, etc. I like the way you can schedule daily and weekly activities. I like the Improvements that allow me to customize dates. I like to be able to set alert reminders. I like the grocery list feature. +++++
Family of 7 and I love it!!
by Palrendall on 2022/01/08 13:51
Super handy when you’re at the doctors’ office and the staff want you to make appointments 6 months from now, and I open the app and mark it in! I love the message reminders so I get everywhere in time too. Super helpful app!

Great Family App
by FlaGirl13 on 2022/01/07 19:00
This is a fun family calendar app, (everyone chooses their own color), and it’s an easy way (connected through each other’s email), to keep up w/one another’s schedules, including your adult kids. No more sticky notes, or checking your purse calendar, or waiting to ck your home calendar, when planning. Just put the event in the calendar, add address of appt or event, & notify some or all of those connected to your digital calendar about upcoming events. Great way to plan a surprise event! We love it❣️😁👊🏼😎👟🌺
Best app for family calendar available.

Great at first, then flopped
by Audiophile T on 2022/01/07 13:30
We loved this at first, but it’s inconsistent with notifications. Even though it’s kept up to date, notifications don’t always come up. This has gone on for at least a year.
Best Calendar app!
by VikingMatt69 on 2022/01/07 12:05
This is by far the best calendar app I’ve ever had! It is flawless and easy to use.

This app is great and it updates quickly between family members. I can be the store shopping and I will see items added that my wife thought of. I like how the calendar lets you choose who is attached to what event by color. Overall Great app.

I work in New York, so live there 4 days out of the week. My families home is in CT, 3 hours from New York. This calendar is a great way for us to keep track of things to do around the house from 2 locations.
Awesome
by Sugarplum@sunrise on 2022/01/05 19:36
I downloaded this app awhile back but never did anything with it! Now I use it daily! I am disabled and have memory loss so Day to Day is a huge task for me so I have added my Personal Assistant and Son with my future daughter-in-law so everyone can help me stay on track with all my appointments, shopping needs and personal notes that I need to remember! This app so four has met all expectations and more with reminders and such!
Great app to keep track of my roommate!
by Chick-a-dee1 on 2022/01/05 15:09
Being single females, my roommate and I feel that it’s important someone know where we are pretty much all the time. This app makes it very easy to see what is on her calendar, and she can see what is on mine.
Works for my family
by CaitlynRoe on 2022/01/05 13:26
My husband, son and I have been using this app for years now. Primarily we use it to have a shared grocery list. We also keep each other appraised for changes in work schedules, birthdays, to do lists. I like that we can have a couple different grocery lists going (such as a normal everyday one and a holiday one) as well as other shopping lists.
Excellent family calendar
by JenA.M. on 2022/01/05 12:29
Fits our busy family needs. I love the updates, use of color to personalize, ability to get alerts, and shared functionality

This is a perfect one-stop-shop for everything we need. It’s great sharing our calendars, shopping lists, and to-do lists. We work together better as a family because we are all on the same page. Love it!
Fast and Easy to use but….
by SogDHog on 2022/01/05 01:09
Our family searched and came across this app which has really helped us merge all our busy schedules onto one calendar. The app is fast and easy to use with caveat, the pop-up advertising often does so with volume on which can ruin a quiet moment or if you check your calendar during a meeting etc. I don’t mind the advertisement please leave didn’t volume muted and allow me to select if I want volume or not.
Great app
by Elle-Ayz on 2022/01/04 23:43
I think the app is great. I love that my husband and I can share a calendar, and to do lists in real time. I would love it if the to-do’s would have reminder options, but other than that I really think it is an awesome app

Used to love it; now, not so much
by Angelface_77 on 2022/01/04 10:10
iPhone calendar used to sync so I didn’t have to double-enter anything and grocery lists synced so either my partner or I would be assure not to miss anything. Now, nothing syncs right. I reached out to customer service and was told to delete and reinstall the app. I have done that countless times with no success. Now, customer service refuses to answer my pleas for help. I’m disappointed, to say the least.
Works great

Have been using this app since January and it works well for our hectic family. I wish there were more colors for designating events but we have made them work for the most part.
Great for teamwork!

It’s so helpful to share shopping lists and calendar events in one app
Widgets won't update until you open the app
by SneibMyuu on 2021/12/30 01:23
I use this to coordinate family events. It's okay, but the widgets won't update until you open the app. For example, we had an event today but it didn't show up on the widget. The widget said no events and only after I opened the app did the widget say that we had an event scheduled today.
Love so far!

Finally getting the family organized!!
Perfect
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.
Family Calendar
by Bcbol on 2021/12/16 23:24
I love Family Calendar. I don’t know how I did without it before. This is my second year with it. Someone showed me how to transfer Birthdays from year to year. That’s just great. It’s my calendar bible. This is a year later. I live by my family calendar. I’d be lost with out it. A year later. I use my family calendar for everything . My husband and I are retired and constantly forget what day or date it is. I check it every day. I use it for appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, everything. As I said before I would be lost without it. I love having it. I’m still using my family calendar daily. It’s great to just pick up my phone and check the date. I would be lost without it. I am older and my memory isn’t as good as it used to be so this calendar really helps. As I’ve said before, it’s my social bible. It’s just great to have.
FamCal helped our family!

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!
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.
Perfect for family
by lumagooster on 2021/12/24 16:59
I’ve been using this app for years. It helps keep our schedules organized and know what events have coming up especially when making appointments I just open FamCal and see the best day and time and it alerts other members immediately. You can also set alerts and add weekly biweekly monthly etc. I also make grocery list on it! You can check it and it grays out and you just uncheck it to add it back to the list so you only have to add once. I started out using it for when bills were due now I use it for appointments, reminders also for my pets medication monthly and even an alert every week to remind to set the garbage out! I basically use it for keeping track of everything in my life! And it really helps to ease my mind bc I enter whatever I need to immediately into the calendar
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!!
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!
Best active family calendar!
by Jinman1018 on 2021/10/25 12:08
I’m a happy 2 year subscriber! With 2 kids having multiple extracurricular activities and a husband that travels, this calendar has been awesome at keeping everything in line. I love the color coding and ability to set reminders. It alerts me when my husband plugs something in so it’s great when he forgets to tell me he scheduled something. It can also set recurring events like sports practice with ease so nothing has to be individually added. I love having a combined shopping list so whoever stops at the store can check the list and grab items easily. It also auto imports our flights and hotel stays. They have thought of everything! It has been the most valuable app I pay for hands down.
Great way to keep family connected
by Not Yo Average Momma on 2021/07/23 15:36
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!!
Love FamCal
by BeeSanderlin on 2021/08/09 13:06
This is the only way I can get my husband to remember upcoming events. We never noticed how many times something would need to be planned/scheduled, but we wouldn’t be together to talk about upcoming events/appointments so this app has been a game changer! It’s so easy to use, and we love setting reminders to help us keep up with things. It’s definitely easy to use and read and very customizable. We use the shopping lists and actually use them! Before using the app I would make a list on paper and always forget to bring it to the store or it would end up lost in my purse. If you are looking for a a customizable, easy to use, multi-use app for organizing your life, I’d recommend FamCal 10/10 times.
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.
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!

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.
Best Shared calendar and list App
by Jojok49 on 2021/11/08 21:35
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, and more, whether just with themselves or with their roommates or families.
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!
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!
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! 👌
Love this App!
by JayJayBree on 2021/10/28 15:28
Easy to Use and Best Simple Calendar App, I’ve used thus far. No, expenses/costs No, Annoying Ads Everything Need in a Calendar *Reminders *Birthday Icons *High lights different colors for each Individual and per Event. *Future Dates Recorded (Yearly Etc; ) Easy way to Keep Each Family Member in the “Know and Remind” them without having to either doing it yourself, writing it down or forgetting something important. I LOVE the Added Feature that gives directions to where the location is. Then there’s NO QUESTIONS or having to either call/Google nor trying to figure it out as well as, remembering the date/function of what is going on!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Mom, wife, and teacher
by shepherd94 on 2021/12/20 20:44
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Great App - Would Benefit From An Assign Function
by StephMoody 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!
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 😁
Perfect app for our busy family life
by LSGrn on 2021/07/29 01:17
I love this app! My husband and I have been trying to figure out a way to keep our schedules on the same page and I am so thankful we found this. I work per diem and am always randomly picking up hours. He is able to know what I work so he knows when he is able to pick up any overtime. We have 4 kids and a busy schedule so being able to share our calendars has been so helpful! The only thing I have found so far that I wish it could do is being able to set something for a certain day of the week lasting only for a number of weeks. However, I would recommend this app to anyone.
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!
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.
Great way to sinc multiple schedules
by ocdworkingmomof3 on 2021/08/08 13:46
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.
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!
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.
Any other...

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
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.
Excels where others don’t

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.
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!!!
It’s good but the forced ad-watching (with sound!) is infuriating.

I originally thought this app was awesome. It does everything I need. But then it started doing ads really frequently, sometimes playing video with sound, and I can’t close it for awhile. It defeats a lot of the value of quickly checking my list. It doesn’t even tell me how to pay to get rid of the ads. I’m debating stopping using the app because I’ll be in the grocery needing to quickly check off something and move to the next while a kid is trying to talk to me and some stupid ad starts to play and goes on for like 5 sec. it makes me want to scream.
