"SolCalendar" Opens a Global User Community

SolCalendar, one of the most beautiful calendar apps for Android, opened up a user community in Google Plus to communicate with users around the world.

Since its launch last September, SolCalendar has got positive reviews globally and some users voluntarily translated the application into their own languages. Recently, SolCalendar was displayed at the top page of Google Play Stores of 10 countries (Korea, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam and Hong Kong, etc.) as one of the apps to help you stick to your New Year's resolutions.

‘Sol Studio at Daum’ opened an official global user community (https://plus.google.com/communities/114268789932460565401) to actively communicate with the increasing number of users. This is an open community, and it will be used as a platform for sharing ideas and suggestions about SolCalendar. Evernote, Adobe and Feedly are some of the global services that runs an active user community. Users can get up-to-date information about the service faster than anywhere else, and they are free to give ideas or suggestions. In SolCalendar community, users can report bugs, give ideas and suggestions, and have an open discussion about the SolCalendar's future. Also the community members can get to SolCalendar team in almost real-time. No more writing e-mails and endless waiting to get an answer. Another interesting part is that members can download the latest version of SolCalendar before everyone else. Some active users and volunteer translators have joined the community already and are actively participating in the community now.

Accordingly, SolCalendar team is getting ready for a major update this spring and based largely on the user’s ideas and suggestions in the community. Usage patterns of each country will also be taken into consideration. The key changes to be made in the spring update will be ▶Improvement of UX/UI ▶Upgrade of Reminders, Weather Information and Sticker Functions ▶ Diversification of Widgets.

Sol Studio at Daum said that user’s love and interest on SolCalendar is what really makes SolCalendar going. Its goal is to make everyone around the world enjoy scheduling their time by using SolCalendar, with no regional, language or cultural barriers.

Meanwhile, SolCalendar has recently begun supporting the Indonesian language. Like in other cases, it was voluntarily translated and provided by local users. SolCalendar is currently supporting 17 languages including Korean, English, Chinese (simplified/traditional), Japanese, Russian, Spanish, French, Turkish, German, Danish, Italian, and Portuguese, Thai, Dutch, Polish and Indonesian. SolCalendar will soon be available in many other languages since it is being translated into several other languages now.
