Good start but really buggy
Looking for a Cozi replacement, something that does Calendaring REALLY well. Calroo looks promising but there are some weird polish bugs that concern me as far as their dedication is concerned. For example, I accidentally swiped backwards after the initial registration was complete and was taken back to the register screen where I had to log back in and miss out on the walkthrough.
Another example was trying to add someone without granting access to my contacts. I wanted to add my wife but couldnt press the invite button when manually typing my email address. I shouldn't have to share my entire contact list to invite family members.
As far as the calendar feature, I really love entering an event. Its simple and fast. I like the concept of ownership, too. Adding family members one by one was a pain, though. I wish I can select multiples without the family chooser being closed. Also, there seems to only be an agenda view - with three kids, I need to have a week view so I know what is coming. Either that or let me subscribe to the calendars via iCal.
A clean looking app but a lot of work before I switch from Cozi.

Thanks for your feedback. We're very dedicated to our app - even though it's completely free and ad-free for you to use (unlike Cozi). As you can see from our updates record, we push regular updates, and take customer feedback very seriously. To address your specific comments: 1) We'll look into how we can put users back into the onboarding flow if they accidentally got out of it. 2) You can most definitely add people manually, via email - the contacts integration is there for your convenience, it's not mandatory. Please contact us via email@example.com and we'll help you out. 3) We'll add your calendaring-related suggestions to our roadmap - thanks for your feedback!
App seems cool, but is rather buggy
I was hoping to use this to help my wife and I keep track of all the stuff going on with our family. The first day I used the app to test it calendar options for iCloud vanishes. There is no way to control what calendars the system imports from iCloud or Google. When I started adding events in the app would regularly ignore who I put in as participants and also reset to everyone instead one person. I still haven’t figured out what caused that. The final straw for me was when I put events in and they vanished. I give this 3 stars because I think it has promise, but needs a bit more polish.

Thanks for your feedback, and sorry that you experienced issues with Google / iCloud sync. We're constantly working on improving these integrations and will definitely take your feedback into account. (External integrations are always the trickiest ones to get right because it's not completely under our control). We'll keep trying!
What a lightning fast and friendly team.
After a fee emails and a day or so so of direct assistance from the team here at Calroo and my family is off to the races. There was a bit of confusion to start things off with the app but now my wife and I us it and have taken the plunge. We make lists and know who planned an event by color. It is one of the many things that helped me stay organized. I have trouble with staying on task and this is my ticket for the future.
