New Calendar App Uses Social Networking to Keep Teens Safe



  • The new app Galndr is trying to make online calendars cool for female teens, while also finding a way for their parents to feel secure that their kids’ private itinerary isn’t being posted all over Facebook. Kaaren Whitney-Vernon, the publisher of Canadian teen magazine Vervegirl, co-founded the app with Sergio Basilone, a father of two teenage girls. They wanted to make a group text and calendar app that allows teen girls to be safe. So why isn’t their a "Palndr" app for teen boys? "To be honest, girls are more social and would engage in what we created more than teen boys. They use social media more than boys do, so we think they're an easier target," Whitney-Vernon said.
