Carpool Scheduling has never been easier
Students and parents can arrange carpools to school, employees for carpooling to work, or friends for attending events. This version of the app is specifically designed for students carpooling to school.
Form groups with ease and identify driver members as well as passengers. Driver preferences for driving directions and default times can also be set. Create a new schedule or edit an existing one to share it with other group members. The Carpool app is capable of automatically scheduling a full month based on driver settings or by copying the schedule from previously scheduled days. Write notes for each day and share your changes and updates with other group members. You can also email the carpool schedule to members and those who do not have an iPhone or iPod touch can view the schedule on their browser and print it out.

•Add members manually or copy their information from your contact list.
•Set member driving preference.

Works well but could use some more features.
I couldn't find another app that would work for my needs so I downloaded it to see if it would do. It works pretty well but would like to see more features to make it more universal. Not just for school.
We are using this for a gymnastics carpool. We have 4 girls in the carpool who don't all go the same times or same days. It would be nice to have a choice of passengers for each day and multiple choice of times for both drop off and pick up. Plus a choice of multiple drivers for those different times.
The copy & paste feature is nice but the notes don't carry over. That would be nice if that was an option also.
My last request would be that passenger emails should be optional. The passengers in our carpool are all kids. They don't all have their own email.
Sometimes I have issues sharing the calendar. Doesn't always work. The email sharing has always worked and is a nice feature.
The app is just a rough draft: where's the final version ?
I was hoping to use this with a group if families carpooling to practice. The schedule settings remain "To school " and don't retain changes when i put in. "To practice". There are pop up ads at the bottom of the screen that overlay selections for the app, resulting in clicking in spam. THIS pisses me off. Although I have entered data on drivers and schedule times, it is not coming up in my invitees' app. I should have trialed it before inviting 6 families. This is embarrassing to me and a waste of time.
Invitation process improvement
I like the improved and streamlined invitation process as well as the updated UI. I recommend this app base on its ease of setup and use.
