Scallyroo Launches Social Calendar Application for Teen Market


New York, NY - February 12, 2009 – Scallyroo ( today announced the launch of its social calendar application that gives teens the power to organize their busy lives and share events with friends and family all on a single page. Scallyroo members can keep track of appointments, schoolwork and events, birthdays, and other appointments, making the premier destination for today’s teens. Scallyroo combines Web 2.0 technologies such as tagging and social sharing coupled with Ajax to deliver a truly unique user experience.

Scallyroo unveiled the new social calendar at the Wingate Tech EXPO-09, the premiere invitation only event that features the latest in cutting edge Web technologies.

“Scallyroo simplifies teenager’s busy schedules by offering them a single place to view all their upcoming social and school related events.” said Ryan Garelick, co-founder and President of Scallyroo. "We offer the missing piece that helps kids stay organized while online. Our members can create an event, such as a study group at their house, share the event with friends and instantly get confirmation of who will be attending. They can also share the event’s day and time with their parents, so mom and dad can keep track of what’s coming up that week.

Scallyroo members can also use the calendar to keep track of goals they created using the Scallyroo Goal Manager. Setting and tracking progress on the way to achieving goals is a key feature offered by Scallyroo. With the Scallyroo calendar, members see when tasks are due and can plan accordingly ahead of time helping them stay on track to accomplishing their goals.

Scallyroo members share their personal profile and create a network of friends with whom they share their events and goals. Goals on shared Scallyroo pages are open to comment from the community. The website also offers a powerful Wish List application which allows members to search for items and share lists, such as birthday, holiday, and favorites with other members in their network of friends. This takes the guess work out of gift giving for friends and family. The result is a place for members to share events, set goals, create wish lists, and connect with friends all in a fun, enriching environment.
