The Idea

As you may have noticed Meetifyr is all about being the easiest way for friends to find a time to meet.  In this post I want to put a little flesh on that idea to see what it really means.

The first thing of note is that we're all about friends meeting up, you could use Meetifyr to schedule a busniess meeting or a sales call but that's not what its about.  There's loads of great tools for schduling meetings, they let you specify the specific dates and times you want to meet, intergrate with existing calendars then have clever email notifications to drive the process along.  This's great for a formal meeting but do a group of friends really need that?

When I'm arranging to meet friends for a beer I usually email them with "Beers, this weekend?" not "Beers, Saturday: 7:30pm - 11:00pm or Sunday: 7:30pm - 11:00pm?".  Its assumed I'm talking about the evening since the last eighteen times I've met those friends it was in the evening!  By removing these implied conventions we can make setting up the meeting much simpler.

This lightweight approach to arranging people might not be applicated in all cases but when it comes to organising friends, we hope its the simplest!
