Tungle & Skype are two peas in an "interconnected flat world pod"

I have been using Tungle a lot lately. It simply rocks, if you work like I do in multiple time zones, scheduling meetings is a royal pain in the a$$. I actually dread the emails that come into my inbox that copy 4 people and ask "whats a good time for all of us to meet?". The hair on the back of my neck stands up, and the dog hides under the couch.

Tungle solves all that - I can set up a Skype conference call in 1 email, with 5 persons globally in different time zones. I can't put a value on this, everyone I work with I push to Tungle now. There is no other way to solve this problem as elegantly as Tungle does it. Oh, by the way - Tungle is FREE. Click here to see my tungle me link. My Calendar.

Anyway - Tungle is running a 'ask the customer contest' and I wanted to share my answers to the 5 questions, as I am a sucker for a free T-shirt.

Q. What made you decide to start Tungling?
A. I work with a Virtual team in almost all timezones on the planet, there is no way to schedule calls efficiently - Tungle solves this.

Q. What’s one thing we do better than any other productivity app out there?
A. You solve a real world problem, and you don't force me to change anything I am not already doing.

Q. What’s one thing we could do to create a better experience for you?
A. You need to take a long think on how to manage trade show/conference calendars. In this scenario Tungle is helpful but not perfect, usually you have a group of people all sharing the same calendar.

Q. Do you refer to others? If yes, why?
A. Yes all the time, if you want to meet with me you have to book it through Tungle - also I want a free Kindle.

Q. What would you Google to find an app like
A. Probably - Time Zone Calendar Synch or free exchange calendar

Thanks Tungle team!!
