What's New

Version 1.60

Picniic has had a busy February!
Our team has been working on a big new feature that will be available soon. In the meantime, though, we’ve updated our calendar, shopping lists, and to-dos sections.

Here’s what v1.60 has to offer:
A few families reported bugs with our calendar. We’ve fixed those issues with this build
• Improved calendar sync communication
• Improved cross-device syncing
• Fixes for a bug that was preventing some users from connecting to our servers
• We’ve done some reorganizing under the hood to make Picniic faster and more optimized. Big changes, little visible results

We love hearing how each family uses Picniic and the unique problems each family has staying organized. If there’s anything that you want to do with Picniic but can’t, let us know! We’re dedicated to making Picniic the best family organizer.

We’re always interested in hearing your feedback and suggestions. If you see something you like, something you don’t like, or think of something you want to see included in our next update, drop us a line! Email feedback@picniic.com

I want to love this app. Really. But I can’t.


I’ve been looking for a while for an app to use that would sync calendars, lists, notes and other info with my partner, as well as messaging - basically a way to have everything in the same place. Picniic ticks all the boxes (although having chat/messaging separate from the “Family News” which also includes a running feed of anything done on the app would be better), but about half the features are premium only, and the way that’s implemented is awful. Unless you’re willing to pay for a year in advance (currently $50, which is at a discount), the premium upgrade is $15 a month, which seems absurdly exorbitant. Meanwhile, if you don’t upgrade, they leave all the pro features on the home page right where they would be if you had access, with icons as large or larger than the usable features. I would probably be willing to pay for the premium service at a more reasonable price, or be less irritated with the premium features being on my home page, if they were minimized a bit. As it is now, though, it feels like the app is shoving the features I can’t use into my face all the time. I hope Picniic will either change the interface or make the yearly cost available month to month ($5 per month at their regular rates), as it’s the only app I’ve found so far that has these features and is not exclusive to iOS, but in the meantime, I’m looking elsewhere.

Useless without overpriced premium upgrade


This app is entirely useless without their heinously overpriced premium upgrade. Without it, all you have are shared calendars (which are visually cluttered, all one color no matter the type of note or who it’s for, and something better achieved for free with a shared Google calendar) and shopping lists. Every other feature including noting meals on the calendar is premium only. And of course the premium version is a fat recurring monthly charge.

On top of that, almost all settings are also premium only, meaning you can’t organize the widgets within the app or even decide what day of the week the calendar display starts without paying the monthly fee. The app looks awful, not just from an aesthetic standpoint but from the purpose of trying to glean information from it. Everything has the same size, color, layout, and emphasis.

So screw it. Even the paid version of the app doesn’t do anything that isn’t already done *better* with other free services. I thought having them all merged into one dashboard would be cute, but again even with premium features it’s a visually cluttered mess. Skip it.

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback! We do think that Picniic offers really good value for money: it’s like 12 apps in one that are in sync and accessible to your whole family. However, we totally get that it can be tough for families to afford at times. We’ll always keep our core features free for that reason 😊

I want to love it, but it needs improvements


I really love the concept of this app. The to do lists, being able to assign tasks to family members, shopping list, meal planner... all awesome.
But... it doesn't sync in the right time zone with team snap on my computer which is very annoying. It also seems to unsync with TeamSnap frequently. I would like to be able to hide & bring up certain calendars that we sync with since we end up with double events. Also, we've had several situations where family members calendars didn't update with events, so they didn't know about something. Our ical however, was right.
It needs improvements before they should be charging this much for the app. I'm disappointed that I'm still using ical as a backup and not quite sure this is going to cut it.
