WhenShallWe is an application that busy people can use to easily schedule upcoming events or meetings. It's often difficult to correspond via email, text, and phone calls with a number of different parties to coordinate the best time for everyone to attend a future event. Much of the time a day that might work for the group won't work for one person, or the day that works for one person won't work for the rest. So, WhenShallWe was designed to eliminate the confusion and confrontations that potentially could occur when organizing meetings. Users can log onto the app and input an event's "shortname" and password. From there, they will be able to look at some of the potential dates and indicate which ones will work best for them. Then the event coordinator can look at the input received from everyone and schedule the event onto a mutually accepted day and time for everyone.Show more screenshots »

The site has gone through a few revisions and is in its version 0.6.8 as of May 2012. Other than this, there isn't a whole lot of other information available about this app or its developer.

It's calendar and collaboration features are somewhat limited, however the app does do what it is intended. Overall, the app functions as advertised and there were no bugs or glitches encountered during this review.
