iPhone App Review: Schedaroo

iPhone App Review: Schedaroo

September 2nd, 2012 by

If you’ve ever had a thought that you wanted to send via email, Facebook, or post to Twitter, but for some reason couldn’t do it right at that moment, then Schedaroo is the app for you. Maybe you don’t want to send it off right away, or maybe your service is spotty and you want to delay the post, but don’t want to forget that clever bon mot that you’re positive will net you 500 likes or retweets.

Fire up Schedaroo (like a scheduling kangaroo because kangaroos are renowned for their organization), tappity type your world-shattering witticism (or that “call in sick” email you want to send at JUST the right time), and tell the app when you want it delivered. Boom!

How It Works

When you start the app you need to first enter your email address and other info, then check your email and confirm that you received it. It would also help if you give Schedaroo permission to use your Facebook and Twitter accounts, through the options in the settings screen in the app. Then it’s as simple as tapping the “+” button and creating the new message, deleting the annoying tag that says “posted with schedaroo”, and selecting which service you want to use to post it.

If you select Facebook you can choose to post it to your own wall or to another user’s, which is something of a minor miracle. If you select email you will obviously need to address the message and create a subject line. Twitter is just Twitter, nothing new here. Once you’ve hit Send you then schedule the post using a standard set of date and time pickers, and then you’re done! The app will send the message and deliver a push notification that it’s done so. You can also see all of your messages on the main screen, sorted by whether they’ve been sent, are pending, or just all of them. A clever postmark denotes those that have been delivered.

Pros And Cons

Schedaroo is currently light on social services, but more are promised in future updates (Google+, etc.). The design of the app is simple and fun, with every tap leading through the logical steps necessary to deliver your message how and when you want it delivered. It also places a notification in your pull-down notification screen, so you can double-check on the deliveries if you’ve missed the pop-ups.

My one issue with the app centers around the “X” button used to close the draft message screen: it’s too darn big and placed very poorly, and doesn’t first confirm whether you mean to quit the screen or not (thereby losing your work). I lost 5 drafts of the same message because I tried to tap the first complete word in the sentence, but managed to only close the window instead (again, without any confirmation). It’s one thing to place a button poorly (although I think the button is also registering inputs from beyond its boundaries), but it’s inexcusable design to let a user close the message they’re working on without first popping up a confirmation.

For the time being, just be careful at the top left corner of the screen.


Schedaroo is a nice app with a great feature that, in my opinion, should already have been included in the messaging features of the OS in the first place. Luckily for developer edenpod it’s not, so if you’re looking for a way to schedule the sending of emails and social networking posts, Schedaroo is what you need. It’s a good stable app that does the job, and will only get better as time goes on.
