Plancast is an online application that makes it easier than ever to share your upcoming plans with friends. While other web-based apps like Foursquare and Loopt let users share their current location with followers, Plancast aims to set itself apart by giving users a way to post information about what they plan to do in the future, as well as in the present. From everyday plans like getting a coffee or catching the train home from work, to more detailed events such as a weekend trip or an upcoming date, Plancast makes it easy to post information about all the things coming up in your life.
Get started with Plancast by creating an account or logging in with your Facebook or Twitter information. Enter your location and time zone, and you’re ready to go. Posting your upcoming plans is as easy as answering three simple questions: What are you doing, when are you going, and where will you be? Determine whether the update should be sent to your Facebook or Twitter account, or both, and click share.
Once your event has been posted, online friends can let you know if they’ll be tagging along on your event by clicking “count me in.” In addition, followers can comment on eachother’s upcoming plans and view a large map showing where the specific event will take place. Finally, Plancast’s RSS feed and iCal export option make it easy to keep track of what you’ve got coming up, even without logging in to the Plancast site. For social media mavens looking for an even better way to meet up with friends, Plancast is an application to check out.
