Scheduling playdates has just gotten a whole lot easier. Instant Playdates lets you instantly schedule and view playdates with your Facebook friends. It's the perfect app for busy parents who want to instantly schedule playdates for their children.
We all know how tough it can be to coordinate schedules with individual friends. Between school, naptimes, and unexpected conflicts, coordinating calendars with others can be almost impossible.
With Instant Playdates, you can broadcast when you and your little ones are available to play to all your friends. Import your Facebook friends and let them know your availability and location instantly. Within minutes, your friends can meet up and presto, Instant Playdate.
What's New in Version 1.1

- Squashed a ton of bugs

Short on info
To be clear this is not a review of the app, I have not used it. I downloaded the app, but did not use it since it immediately required a FaceBook login. FaceBook is notoriously horrible with privacy and before I consider using an app that connects with FB, even just for OAUTH, I want details about how it's being used. I don't see any way to review full instructions or tutorial for this app without first logging in. I want to know how communities/grouos and sub-groups are formed, who sees your playdate broadcasts and where those broadcasts are seen (FB? IM? In app only?) The app needs to show a whole lot more about privacy.
I love the idea. I found this app because I had the same idea. I knew the idea wasn't unique and it resonated with other parents in my school. I had a feeling someone had already developed something. Is this app it? I don't know, it needs to provide tons more detail - I'll dive deeper, maybe that detail is off on the developers website. Meanwhile, consider other account methods. Don't require login to even look at general app function. Provide detailed instructions and perhaps a tutorial in app.
Only one day out?
This looked like a great idea, then when I downloaded it, it only allows you to set the play date for the day of or next day- too short of notice! Won't be using this app :(
