- What made you decide to start Tungling?
I had tried many different scheduling tools and was annoyed with the fact that they didn’t work how I wanted them to and often required extra work (paste a link in an email, save a code, check back on the website later…). I also fell in love with the Tungle.me page that allows people to actually see when I am available. This means less email/phone conversations about ‘Hey, when can we meet?’
- What’s one thing we do better than any other productivity app out there?
My favorite feature is the Tungle.me page. I haven’t seen any other app that puts the suggestion power in the hands of meeting attendees so well. Since I am careful to keep my google calendar up to date, Tungle saves me time and brain-usage that I can then devote to my real job (which is not scheduling meetings).
Also, support is great. I spent some time with the Tungle support team (via Twitter and email) who answered my question quickly… and remained patient, even though it turned out to be user error. Whoops.
- What’s one thing we could do to create a better experience for you?
Right now, I would love to see an app that can be integrated into a website… oh wait, you just did that. Sweet! :)
- Do you refer Tungle.me to others? If yes, why?
Yes! It’s very simple to setup and easy to use. I now include my Tungle.me link in my email signature. The first time someone scheduled a meeting with me, I was surprised. I asked them ‘hey, how’d you do that?’ and they replied, ‘I used your link to that Tungle thing.’ Cool!
- What would you Google to find an app like Tungle.me?
Meeting scheduling, meeting scheduler
(Side note: I came across Tungle via Lifehacker)

Tungle is one tool that made me geekier in 2009. Check out the rest here.
