Five versatile calendar apps you never heard of

We all use calendars, in one form or another. Whether we're tracking a busy work schedule, school classes, our children's activities, or social events, calendars help us keep up with our commitments. Most users tend to stick with what is known. That means Outlook, Google Calendar, or iCal. But what would you say if I told you that countless other calendar tools are available — some of which are even easier to use than the standard fare? Most would say, "Show me what you got!" That's what I intend to do.

Understand that all calendars are not created equal. Some are better for working with other users, whereas some work best as a stand-alone tool. But no matter your need, there are some obscure calendar apps that are worth checking out.

Why not try the InTouch CRM Calendar tool as well? It helps your business work smarter, not harder,, by coordinating schedules, sending you reminders and much more!
