Skiff Calendar is OUT 🎉 📅In the last year, we’ve launched Skiff Mail, Pages, Drive, and now Calendar to complete the privacy-first workspace. Our mission is to empower freer, more creative, and more expressive communication and collaboration - and a shared calendar brings us even closer to that future.Our calendars store a corpus of our lives - our appointments, our contacts, or family gatherings, and much more. They contain a record of where we go - flights, coffee meetings, and birthday parties - and what we’re working on.Calendars also integrate deeply into the modern workspace. Teams use shared calendars for important meetings; every iOS and Android device relys on calendars for appointments and notifications; event invites are a critical reminder for upcoming meetings or deadlines.Skiff Calendar is an end-to-end encrypted, private calendar that integrates deeply with Skiff Mail, Drive, and Pages. Skiff Calendar allows sending events and updates to external users, syncs across devices, and is built to be completely privacy-first.
