HEY.com calendar live

By David Heinemeier Hansson.

Quote:
We heard that feedback from the moment we launched HEY, but we didn’t just want to tick a box on a feature chart. If we were going to do a calendar for HEY, it had to be as interesting, inspiring, and innovative as HEY itself. So it took a while to crystalize that vision: What should a calendar look like and how should it work if you designed it from a clean sheet of paper? That’s what HEY Calendar is. A complete rethink, just like we did for email.

Apple revives old fight with Hey after rejecting new calendar app

Quote:
roughly 72 hours after the premium email service Hey announced its latest feature — an integrated calendar — co-founder David Heinemeier Hansson received some unwelcome news from Apple: it was rejecting a standalone iOS app for Hey Calendar, because non-paying users couldn’t do anything when they opened the app up.

New users can’t sign up for Hey Calendar directly on the app — Basecamp, which makes Hey, makes users first sign up through a browser. Apple’s App Store rules require most paid services to offer users the ability to pay and sign up through the app, ensuring the company gets up to a 30 percent cut. The controversial rule has a ton of gray areas and carve-outs (i.e. reader apps like Spotify and Kindle get an exception) and is the subject of antitrust fights in multiple countries.

Nothing new here: if you want to operate a business in a territory you have to pay taxes to whoever runs the territory: country, state, county, city, landlord, local mafia, Apple ...

I am just surprised, hey.com is so expensive ($99/y), don't they provide calendar for free?

If the charge 99$/y then it's not free...

Better said, it doesn't cost anything extra.
