What can you use the app for?

PHP Event Calendar is a scheduling tool that lets users keep their audience aware of important dates. The application includes a few customization options that allow the user to tailor the calendar to their needs. Five web calendar themes are offered so the visual experience matches the rest of their website. Users can also toggle front end functions on and off, including multiple calendar views and categories. The multiple view option allows the viewer to choose calendar, list or monthly layouts. Each calendar integrates easily using a script. The user only has to copy and paste the script into their web page to add the calendar. Refreshing is not required because the camera automatically updates based on the user’s actions without refreshing the entire page.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

PHP Event Calendar offers a simple service. The parent company has been mentioned on the web. At least one alleged customer had a significant list of complaints posted however the company responded in a professional manner. PHP Event Calendar specifically hasn’t received significant notoriety, but this could be because of the rather basic features list. There are many calendar tools available on the web, so competition may eclipse the offerings of the application.

What are the differences to other apps?

PHP Event Calendar offers a few appealing features to its users. The service offers five themes to choose from. While this might be great for basic display purposes, other users may prefer something more visually diverse. The ability to choose completely customized colors and build a theme using a collection of options would be a wonderful addition. The features list feels watered down, although the items included do bring value to the user experience.

PHP Event Calendar looks much like a regular wall calendar at first glance. The user views a grid of dates with color highlights indicating something significant occurring on that date. The multiple view options are a nice touch, with clean lists or month overview formats. It’s very easy to figure out how to navigate through the calendar and installation requires a quick copy and paste. A novice should have no trouble figuring out how to use PHP Event Calendar.

How does the registration process work?

Anyone interested in purchasing PHP Event Calendar can click the dark grey “Buy Now” button found near the center of the page. Doing so takes the user to the subscription selection page. After clicking the “Add to Cart” button that corresponds with the chosen license option, the user is asked to provide a name, email address, order type (personal or company), how the user heard about the product and a verification code. The user must also choose between Paypal and 2CheckOut to pay for the purchase.

PHP Event Calendar is available with two license options. The User License costs $59 and includes free installation support, one installation and free updates. The Developer License costs $99 and includes access to source code, removal of the company’s copyright notice from back and front end environments and multiple installations.

Who would you recommend the application to?

PHP Event Calendar is a decent solution for anyone who wants a basic, straightforward scheduling tool. The cost is reasonable considering that it is not a monthly recurring fee and the features list is short but effective.
