    Got a website that could benefit from a calendar and event management utilities, but everything you’ve seen out there looks like rubbish?

    That’ll change when you look at F.Y.I. Fly’s new and completely free Event Calendar. It’s designed so well you’ll forget that calendars are, at the end of the day, quite boring things.

    The app features Facebook integration and is in fact Facebook driven, so you’ll need to authorize it using your Facebook account. It’s also got inline event management features, facilities for your community to share photos and discuss events and works great on mobile devices.

You can simply create the event and share it with all those who might be interested in attending on Facebook.
