Calendar sharing with fruux pro

During the last four weeks we've worked hard on our v1.0 of fruux, which we've finally released yesterday.

We are super excited about calendar sharing!

This new feature allows you to invite your family, friends or co-workers into an existing calendar and set individual permissions (read-only or read/write) for each person you are sharing a calendar with.

Our webapp makes it simple to invite people, manage the permissions for everybody and accept (or decline) invitations from others. We're also natively supporting calendar sharing in iCal on the Mac: If you are using it, you can do all of this without even starting your browser.

Calendar sharing is a pro feature, but soon we'll also give free users a limited number of shares to make the feature as broadly available as possible.

Importing - now it's even easier to get your data into fruux.

Now it as simple as pie to get your data into fruux. Instead of relying on the import features of your contact/calendar applications it's now possible to do it directly in our webapp. Our address book importer even supports groups for the Mac address book.

Introducing fruux pro

Last but not least we're launching fruux pro today. We admire simplicity in technology and so do we in pricing. We're building a smart product for smart people, and we feel that prices like EUR 4.99 or EUR 49.99 are just retarded! fruux pro exists in two different models: 4 EUR per month, or 40 EUR per year (you'll effectively save two months compared to the monthly payment) and thats it.

So if you want to start using calendar sharing right now or the 3 device limit of our free accounts is too low for you, go pro! We'll also add even more awesome stuff to our pro accounts in the future!
