Seoul, Korea, Republic Of – AKAON’s Planner S application brought a new social networking concept to mobile users. The application is a unique way of combining scheduling and calendar functions with self-expression, within an interface that allows the user to share their entries with friends across a multitude of platforms.
The Planner S “social diary” concept is ambitious. The application proposed opening a whole new dimension in social networking and building its own Planner S community, which would be integrated with existing networks like Facebook and Twitter. The ambitiousness of the undertaking was certain to either be the application’s key to success – or its downfall. Had social networking reached a point of maximum saturation?
The success Planner S has seen in the short period of time since its launch says no. The overwhelmingly positive reviews and quickly expanding community prove the Planner S has found a new niche – one that mobile users love. The application’s positive reception is linked to the synergy between its highly customizable interface with easy-to-tailor user entries and its streamlined simplicity. Sound-bite length entries make Planner S a fun way to keep up with friends and colleagues, while the user’s ability to edit and enhance their entries with various fonts, colors, skins, and digital “stickers” give their communications another layer of expression.
Planner S is also incredibly versatile, as it functions as a public or private diary, a full-featured calendar, and provides users with the ability to share their entries directly with Facebook and Twitter. They can also follow along with their friends from within the app, and meet new people through the Planner S community. AKAON hopes the application’s early success foreshadows its future, as Planner S gains momentum as a new way to schedule, socialize, share, and network.
