Planning a party or event usually means stress and rushing around but it really doesn't have to be that way. The Simple Soiree app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users a way to put together a plan that is easy to follow and stick to. Everything you need regarding the planning will be available on your mobile device so you never have to search around for random notes, receipts, and pamphlets. The app is versatile enough that it can be used for all different types and sizes of events.
If you've ever wondered how the party planner professionals do it, the secret is all in their planning and organization tools. The Simple Soiree app aims to provide you with those kinds of tools so you can feel like a professional yourself. The app has placed a lot of emphasis on being user-friendly and versatile so the question is has it succeeded? It really boils down to what kind of planning tool you are looking for. This one is smooth and simple yet it's rather basic when it comes to the tools offered. It seems better suited for small to medium sized events.
The app hasn't been updated in a couple of years and this is really hurting it in the customer ratings. This is a category that is filled with stiff competition and the app needs to bring it up a notch or two in order to become a serious offering. It has three out of five stars from users, which shows it’s got promise but still has improvements to be made.
The goal of the Simple Soiree app is to take the stress out of party planning by giving users a way to lay out their plans and keep track of them. Use this app to create your event and then start adding all the details such as to-do lists, shopping lists, a guest list, a menu, decorations, ideas regarding your theme, and anything else. As you complete tasks you can make note of it in the app such as when you hear back from guests. Your lists can be as detailed as you want, you can export your lists to your email so you can print them, and email them to others.
Despite all its tools it still feels as if it falls short. There just aren't a whole lot of tools here. Again this one seems better suited to smaller events.
