Are We Online Calendar Obsessed?

Maybe its the idea of competing directly against one of the most successful and largest online corporations, (Google Inc. has recently integrated GCal and GMail). Maybe its reading about Kiko (a competitive online calendar product) by being acquired by Tucows, a publicly traded Internet services company, for a quarter million dollar winning bid on eBay after Kiko themselves posted a blog saying that they were closing up shop. Maybe its the idea that you truly believe in the product and service you are offering. Whatever it is, Greenwich, CT based Vivapop has formally launched their web based calendar and events management service.

Vivapop does have a niche audience and premium features the ability to write to your calendar by voice commands, sync both ways between Vivapop and Outlook on the desktop and manage multiple calendars. Vivapop also uses synchronization technology from Redwood City, California’s Funambol and has a dedicated business model with end user cost starting at at $1 for the first 30 days, followed by $9.99 per month for the basic service with Outlook syncing and $14.99 to include voice access.

As a dedicated supportor entrepreneurial endeavors, I certainly wish Vivapop the best of luck and the largest success. If not, there’s always the “eBay” exit strategy.

  • […] On September 6th, 2006 we posted an article entitled, “Are We Online Calendar Obsessed?” that discussed some details about startup companies producing online calendar solutions. One of the companies we mentioned was Vivapop.com (operated by LiliLojik LLC), which provides an online web based calendar and events management service. Vivapop has received positive feedback from several sources including Techcrunch who expressed that Vivapop “offers a very nice interface, cross platform bidirectional syncing and voice recognition for mobile access”. After posting our article we received a significant amount of emails written by end users wanting to learn more about Vivapop. We quickly contacted Vivapop and had the opportunity to ask its founder, Elizabeth Tarbell, a few questions about her company and offered solutions. […]
