Spongecell is the latest in the long line of Ajax calendars. Its built on Ruby on Rails and uses the scriptaculous goodies, but the coolest feature is the “spongebar”. It takes a natural English pharse and figures out what appoitment to add to your calendar. So you can type in “meet over $5 flavored coffee at Starbucks 4 pm tomorrow” and it figures things out and adds the appropriate appointments.
The interface seemed nice and responsive and fairly clean. Drag and drop seemed to be well used, though I wasn’t sure about some of the effects.
Other featuers include:
- easy mobile interface
- iCalendar import/export and RSS feeds
- simple, intuitive UI
Btw, there is a launch party in San Francisco on Wednesday if you are in the area.
