Can I export Life Sorted events to other calendars?

No, external calendars are imported only. We don’t export events to other calendars for a few reasons. Firstly, our goal is for Life Sorted to become your central hub for events and tasks!

Also, Life Sorted events are enhanced with unique features that are not compatible with other calendars – from things like family member’s involvements, to assigning linked to-dos, permission-statuses, custom recurring-abilities, and many more features in the pipeline.

How is Life Sorted different to Google calendar?

The Life Sorted app is designed specifically to solve the complexities of a busy family (it’s not just a regular calendar). Our is to help you feel more organised and in-control and improve the communication within your family.Our unique features that contribute to this include the ability to:

  • view the whole family’s events together, with the ability to filter individual family members you’d like to view
  • import your work or school calendar  from everyone’s google/apple/outlook calendars with real-time syncing
  • sync your Google, Apple or Outlook work/school events in real-time, which allows you to really take control of your busy-life, in one central app
  • Invite others to events, including the ability to mark a family member as FYI, which lets the family member know about an event that others are attending
  • create a to-do that is linked to a specific event so that you will be notified of things you need to do before an upcoming event (e.g. send out invites for upcoming party)
  • view a dedicated area for annual events, such as birthdays and anniversaries, with added functionality including keeping a track of the year, setting reminders and linking things to-do (e.g. buy a gift or send a message, etc)
  • add items to a shared shopping list so that you (or a member of your family) can access the list and tick items off when they visit the store
  • set up school term dates and sporting seasons, which then allows you to create repeating events that fall within that specific season or term
  • chat with the family about the details of an upcoming event, like who is dropping off or picking up, making sure everyone has all the info they need
  • view your calendar the way you like it – choose from month, week, day or list views. All the information you need is accessible at the click of a button, and you can even set your favourite view. You’ll totally love being able to see what every family member is up to at any given time using our side-by-side day view.
  • print out your schedule, annuals and to-do lists
  • give everyone in your family access to update their own profile and set their own preferences
  • choose from a plethora of customisable setting so you can ensure Life Sorted works just the way you like it – from colours to automated reminders to how you like to receive reminders and notifications.


How much does Life Sorted cost?

One subscription is all that is needed for all features, for everyone in the family, across all devices. You can choose from either $5.99 AUD per month or $59.99 AUD per year. That’s less than an uberEats meal that gets devoured in minutes and will keep your family feeling sorted all year!

Am I going to be automatically charged after the trial?

No, don’t worry! You won’t be charged after the trial period, it will simply expire and you will no longer be able to access the app.


How do I contact support?
