TimeBridge Becomes First Scheduling Application to Integrate With Apple iCalTimeBridge Now Integrated With Three Top Calendaring Applications: Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal, and Also Available on Mobile Devices Including iPhone and BlackBerry (September 04, 2008)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/04/08 -- TimeBridge today announced that the TimeBridge Personal Scheduling Assistant is now fully integrated with Apple iCal, becoming the first scheduling application to support the increasingly popular calendaring system. TimeBridge also connects directly with Apple Address Book from its web-based interface for even faster scheduling. Also as of today, TimeBridge can be accessed via iPhone, BlackBerry and other mobile devices to let busy people respond to meeting invitations even when they are away from their computer. TimeBridge, currently counting more than 100,000 users, now works with Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal, with Entourage integration coming soon, representing more than 90% of TimeBridge users.
"Our users have been clamoring for Apple iCal integration and we're proud to be the first scheduling tool to cater to the growing and energetic base of people who love iCal," said Yori Nelken, founder and CEO of TimeBridge. "TimeBridge is focused on developing the most useful and easy-to-use services to make the process of coordinating meetings as easy and painless as possible, and we're committed to making TimeBridge accessible to virtually any calendaring system and through any computing device."
The growing adoption of Apple OS X -- currently 8% of the computer market -- and strong iPhone sales have contributed to the rise of Apple iCal as a widely used calendar system. With both iCal support and the Personal Scheduling Assistant's new mobile interface, TimeBridge is now a hub for all Mac and iPhone users' scheduling and meeting needs. In addition to the iPhone, TimeBridge now works on any Internet-capable phone and lets attendees reply to TimeBridge invites while they're on the go.
For TimeBridge users connected to Apple iCal, TimeBridge will offer all of the same integrated meeting services in addition to the scheduling and availability functionality, including free conference calling, OpenTable reservations, web-conferencing and more. TimeBridge's free scheduling software is the most efficient way to schedule meetings with large groups or individuals across time zones, calendaring systems and companies.
TimeBridge has created the first Personal Scheduling Assistant to give busy professionals a faster, more efficient way to schedule their time. TimeBridge's one-step scheduling is the most efficient way to schedule meetings with large groups or individuals across time zones, calendaring systems and companies. TimeBridge allows users to easily schedule meetings, share their availability with others, and connect directly with calendars including Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal. While online calendars help users track their time, TimeBridge facilitates the social, and often complex process of getting busy people together -- in person, on the phone or online. TimeBridge is backed by blue-chip venture capital firms Mayfield Fund and Norwest Venture Partners. For more information, go to www.timebridge.com.
