We like the Cozi app. You can use it from their website as well as the app. We quit using the Apple calendar a few years ago in favor of this. My kids have it on their iPods as well and I can send them reminders for appointments and things too.

I use google calendar on my laptop, you can set up different gmail accounts to share their calendars. Then you can use calengoo or pocket informant (there may be others, but I've used both of these and like them) on the iphone. I like that the calendars area color coded,.it's easy to tell different peoples stuff apart. I have it set up for the for of us in our house, and share the calendar with my daughter on her phone (have it on my phone and ipod). my hubby still likes his paper calendar!

Google calendar on computer. You can have as many calendars as you want & share them. Each calendar is different color & you can turn them on & off if you just want to see yours.

I then have that synced to iPhone's default calendar. Again, each different color calendar shows up if turned on. Or turn it off.

We also use Cozi. I really like that I can have reminders sent to our phones.

Is Cozi any better than it used to be? I tried it about a year ago, but they were just having so many website & server problems. I didn't find them reliable & didn't want to lose data.

That is why I went the Google Calendar route. Way more stable! Cozi seemed like a little start up company & I wasn't sure they had the knowledge or backing to stick it out.

I haven't had any issues but I do recall they had some server issues quite a while ago.

We use Cozi also. We haven't had any problems with it either. I like that everyone in the family has a different color and that we can get reminders.

Used to use Cozi...now we use Skedi. Much better -- though it's the most expensive app I've ever bought! Well worth it though!

We used the included iCal app...

Open iCal
Click on Calendars
Click on the blue button for the calendar you want to share
Under "Shared with" search for your husband in your contacts

Works great for us!
