Don't use if you need to access your calendar off-line
on March 11, 2012
I just needed a basic calendar app for my Kindle Fire to keep track of appointments and upcoming events, so I tried out the Cozi Family Organizer. At first it seemed to meet needs just fine. It seemed to try to steer me a little too much to the Cozi website, which was a little annoying, but it did what I needed, letting me track the schedule of various meetings and events. However, I frequently take my Kindle Fire with me on trips or to church or other locations without WiFi. I soon discovered that if I hadn't connected to the app while connected to WiFi, it would start up with a "Cozi App Tip" screen, but would time out due to the lack of a connection. Then it wouldn't let me access my calendar or do anything more.
I assume this occurs because they are trying to force downloads of their adds, but it makes the product totally unusable in situations where you may need to access your calendar, but don't have wifi.
