If you find it too difficult to meet up with friends due to the hassle of planning according to everyone's schedule, this is the app for you! You can sync your calendar up so people know when you're available or enter in events manually, create groups so you can contact in bulk and hide yourself for a little while if you don't want to be disturbed. The only downsides are needing to log into Facebook and trying to convince your friends to do the same, but if you can oblige, it's a worthy time-saver.
Downtyme allows you to match schedules and make plans with nearby friends. It’s the fastest, most convenient way to get together with friends in your free time. Here’s how it works:
1) Sync your calendar or enter your typical weekly schedule. Downtyme only uses your availability and your schedule is never shared directly with anyone, so your privacy is maintained.
2) Select a time & Downtyme shows you which friends are mutually available, sorted by location and relationship to you.
3) Tap on the friends (or groups) that you’d like to hang out with, and they’ll be notified instantly. Specify details like where’d you like to meet up and what you’d like to do.
4) View your upcoming plans and instantly message with plan-goers to work out the remaining details.
If you’re feeling that Downtyme is too effective for bringing people together and you need some alone time, just flip the “Hidden” switch and become invisible.
