What can you use the app for?

Planza is an event planning application that lets users simplify the party organizing process. Instead of trying to communicate details and get responses through email, phone, text and other means, Planza centralizes everything. The user begins by setting up their event with a time, place and the people they want to invite. The application stores all the relevant information and provides a few extras, like an area for notes, a to do list and discussions. Event planners can visit their Planza profile to keep track of all the basic information in one convenient location. The application even offers a limited but appealing selection of colors that can be used to change the background of the event page so it matches the tone of the celebration.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Planza hasn’t received significant notoriety yet. The application is appealing, especially for those who prefer a straightforward event planner designed for the individual. That being said, the service doesn’t really offer anything new or exciting. Many of the features are the same kinds of things that could be done on more popular sites like Facebook. This could make it difficult for Planza to attract attention from the many other more detailed event planning tools that are available on the web.

What are the differences to other apps?

The main difference between Planza and any other event planning tool is how simple and straightforward the application is. Users aren’t assaulted with options or advertisements. Everything is neatly organized and only the most basic and important features are included. It’s a simple party or event organizer for people who prefer the bare necessities.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Planza maintains a basic, uncluttered look throughout – which is a very good thing. There are no obnoxious advertisements or unnecessary imagery to distract the eye. The fields are clearly presented in a shade darker than the background. The user can also select background colors from a small palette so they can add a touch of personality to the page. Even the most novice user will have no trouble figuring out how to use Planza.

How does the registration process work?

To begin, users can complete the form on the Planza homepage. Some users may find that when they try to add their email address in the “Invite People” field provided, the site doesn’t seem to register the data. If this happens, try clicking the “Join” link at the bottom of the page. This will present a short registration form which asks for a name, email address and password. A blue button is available at the top of the form for those who want to register with Facebook.

What does it cost to use the application?

Anyone can use Planza for free. There are no subscription fees or other purchases required. Everyone receives unlimited access to all current features. Free is definitely a good choice for Planza because the application doesn’t offer anything that isn’t already available for free elsewhere. The main attraction is how it combines all the necessities without overdoing it with features and flashy graphics. Planza is still in beta so it's always possible that things could change should more features be added.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Planza is a simple party planner that may be more appealing to user who dislike a busy interface or too many options. The application is intended for casual users who plan personal events like family reunions, birthday parties, picnics and gatherings with friends and family. It doesn’t offer anything that would interest professional event planners. For the most part the application works flawlessly, except for the issue with the email address when using the form on the homepage. Anyone who doesn’t like Facebook’s design or only wants a basic but functional event planning tool will really appreciate what Planza has to offer.
