T-Mobile Helps Familes Get Organized with New Calendar Service

Posted by at 1:41 pm on October 8, 2011

Cozi and T-Mobile have announced the availability of MobileLife Family Organizer (MLFO), an application and online service designed to make managing busy family schedules a snap with a shared calendar, shopping lists, to-do lists, family journal and more. The application is available for consumers who use smartphones running on Android, iOS, and BlackBerry and is conveniently pre-loaded on new T-Mobile devices including the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the recently announced T-Mobile myTouch and the T-Mobile myTouch Q.

The MobileLife Family Organizer is a version of Cozi’s service customized for T-Mobile customers that enables busy families to keep up with appointments and lists, coordinate work and home schedules, and share favorite memories and photos in one place. It includes a family calendar, to-do list, shopping list, family journal and the family message board, a new feature currently exclusive to T-Mobile customers, which allows families to leave messages for each other over email and text-message.

Additionally, MLFO provides a cohesive, cross-platform experience for families, making it easier to keep everyone updated and connected. For T-Mobile, the availability of MLFO marks the first time the company has launched a branded application across OS platforms, offering it for download in four marketplaces: Android Market, Amazon Appstore for Android, Blackberry App World, and Apple’s App Store.

Torrie Dorrell, vice president of applications, content and gaming at T-Mobile USA remarks, “The MobileLife Family Organizer simplifies everyday life, acting as the family’s ‘personal cloud,’ that enables reliable access to shared calendars, to-do lists and other resources across our devices as well as PCs and Macs.”

“There is no question that mobile is the ‘missing link’ to bring online utilities such as calendars and to-do lists to families,” said Cozi CEO Robbie Cape. “Cozi is thrilled to announce T-Mobile as our first mobile operator partner. The value of T-Mobile’s service, devices and ongoing commitment to families makes us proud to launch our service with them.”

MLFO features include:

  • Family Calendar – Get everyone on the same page with a shared online calendar that’s color-coded by family member. Send reminders to yourself or members of the family using text, email or from your customized MLFO family home page.
  • Grocery Shopping Lists –Recall your grocery and shopping lists from any mobile device, PC or Mac – anytime, on the go.
  • To Do Lists – Easily track and manage tasks to complete by sending to-do lists by text or email to anyone in the family.
  • Family Journal – Jot down memories as they happen, add a photo from an online gallery or take a new one — all while out and about on your Android or iOS device. The journal keeps family memories in one place – similar to a family blog but easier to update and manage.
  • Photo Collage Screensaver – Make collages automatically on your computer using your stored photos.
  • Sync with Microsoft Outlook – Conveniently merge professional and personal calendars by syncing your family calendar with Microsoft Outlook to ensure there are no missed appointments and no double calendar entries.
  • Widgets – Add a calendar, shopping list or to-do list widget to the home screen of any Android device on which MLFO is installed for quick access to family schedule and lists.
  • Family Message Board –Broadcast a message to one or more family members with a single click of a mouse, as all registered MLFO users can easily access this service from the Web client at www.t-mobile.com/calendar.
