Kiko 2.0 Released

Category: Calendar, Showcase

YCombinator’s Kiko team has released a new version that completely revamps the look and feel of the September 2005 beta. Kiko still has the same drag and drop functionality that it had in its beta but now it sports a brand new, and much cleaner, interface and a whole host of new features:

  • Appointment reminders via email, text messages, and AIM
  • RSS feed for upcoming events
  • Natural Language Quick Create (ex: “3/26 2am Raid on Ironforge [WoW] +thrall +gromhellscream”)
  • Import appointments and contacts via iCal and vCard
  • and personal public URLs for your calendar.

I definately like the new Kiko over the old – this will better rival 30Boxes (which is the best currently out there). My problem is this – I know that Google’s CL2 will be out soon. I really want everything to interface with my GMail. Perhaps we could live in the United States of Google?

I don’t know, but it seems like Google is taking over – and for some reason, they do a good job and I WANT to use their products. So, while I like the new Kiko and 30Boxes – I will continue to wait before putting my calendar online.

I will wait for CL2.

I agree with you Peter, except perhaps for the US of Google part : /

When Google initiated the chat program that interfaced directly with GMail I realized how much I enjoy having all my chats archived right alongside my emails. I was so ticked off when I learned that Trillian Basic can’t use the same GMail functionailty!

The new Kiko is pretty darn swanky, but I’ve been spoiled just a tiny bit by the GMail + GChat combo and I’m ready to be spoiled some more.

The re-design is excellent and the inclusion of natural language event logging quickly makes Kiko the second-best calendar on my list.

The number one spot, though, is still held by HipCal. HipCal’s focus on personal productivity rather than the whole ‘social’ ballber (which I seriously can’t use until everyone I know starts using online calendaring apps) makes it a much better choice for me.

30boxes impressed me for a while, but not for long enough.

Kiko: Not Just Another Calendar Application

From what I've read, it looks like Kiko is different because it offers some fancy Ajax drag and drop features. Ajaxian has a good review of the features: * Appointment reminders via email, text messages, and AIM * RSS feed…

Is Kiko or any of the others mentioned meant to be built into web apps? Or are these all stand-alones. I use a little bit. But I am more interested in a component I can put into my PM site.
