Turn your calendar into a memory machine

Reprime is a curated directory of 100,000+ interesting things happening around the world, that it can add to your calendar app to remind you of it. Be it airing of next episode of Game of Thrones or be it the next Tennis match, Reprime can add it all like black magic so that you focus on other important things in life. It was a side project that silently gained more than 50,000+ users and we decided to give it a little more love and launch it on ProductHunt. I did a blog post about how we got these many users without even a launch: https://blog.reprime.io/the-invi.... Would love to hear your thoughts!

@mohitmamoria cool idea! Intro video could use some work though.

@mohitmamoria Your blog post is great, thanks for sharing your story. You achieved the dream of every Weekend Side Project Warrior - you built it and they actually did come! 👏👏👏

@amin_nazim Hey Nazim. It was a side project and we made the video on our own using a basic software. Great feedback! Will replace it with a better quality soon. 😺

@kleneway Haha. To be honest, the magic happened when we started providing schedule of Game Of Thrones. The euphoria was such that we also made some benefit out of it. 🙈

@mohitmamoria That's awesome! Looks dope in terms of color/transitions, just the content. Anyways, do you plan on giving users the ability to add their own events at some point? For example, "Hackathons in US/Europe" would be great. Some can be pulled from "mlh.io"

@mohitmamoria I was wondering if there was one schedule that was driving the most traffic. Here's a quick suggestion for you. Instead of clicking on a schedule and going straight to google calendar, create a new page with more info and a big "add to calendar" button. Be sure to optimize for SEO (descriptive URL, no copied/duplicated text), and then get to work adding top 25 TV shows, NFL team schedules, popular band tour dates, etc. Then put some ads on those pages. If you think it's fun watching your sql logs go up, wait until you start watching your ad revenue numbers! 🤑

@amin_nazim This is a very interesting thing that we'd LOVE to do. We're experimenting with this (i.e. allowing people to curate events themselves). Eg: https://www.reprime.io/explore?q... Eventually, we want to build a community around reminders. For now, I am sending the team a heads-up to start maintaining a schedule for "Hackathons in US/Europe". May I send you can email/tweet once we are ready with it? :)
Mohit Mamoria@mohitmamoria · Maker and Storyteller
@kleneway Haha. Kevin, you're revealing our plan! Haha. Jokes aside. We still have a lot of work to do, the task #1 being, giving each calendar its own dedicated page. Works for SEO and as well as paid calendars for brands (conferences, events, etc). :)

Love that this is simply an integration with the calendar rather than yet another app. It also reminds me of something Sunrise experimented with (cc @jeremylv). I'm surprised we haven't seen more calendar apps include recurring reminders for your favorite TV shows, sports games, and other events.

@rrhoover Wohoo!! Your comment just made the day of the whole team here. We didn't see any point in spending months to develop an app just to solve one problem. Instead, after such good feedback and various ideas pouring in, we have flexibility to take this tiny idea in various possible directions. Our favorite is turning it into an AI assistant for reminders and daily organisation (Being a heavy calendar user, I still feel putting something in your calendar is a tedious task.) Thank you for signing up for Reprime but you didn't seem to sync any schedules. How about syncing PH LIVE calendar to start with? (Link: https://repri.me/HmbrZ)

@jeremylv Hey Jeremy, would love to hear your thoughts on it too. I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND A BETTER CALENDAR THAN SUNRISE :) ❤️❤️❤️

@rrhoover gmail has very limited execution for professional sports but the extent of calendars here is simply amazing. Love how easy it is to search for categories and specific calendars too. How do you guys determine which calendar to create? I see an integration w/ Amino with minimum community threshold?

@wpschwarz Hi Will. Thanks for these amazing words. We currently maintain 9000+ calendars and plan to add 10000+ more in next 2 weeks. We determine what calendars to create by the searches people are making. We track all the search queries that return 0 results and if some particular query returns 0 results many times, we start curating events of that calendar. It was a tricky solution without having to ask users directly with a suggestion box (I haven't seen it working really well). Let me check out Amino. If you know those guys, can you introduce me? My email: mohit [at] reprime.io :)

Thanks @rrhoover & @mohitmamoria! This is a great start, our users loved Interesting Calendars in Sunrise and we added it into Outlook since then. Keep it up!

@jeremylv Wow. The man himself. Did I tell that you just made our day, sir? :) Humbled.
Wilfred Stegeman@steeg · Co-founder/CCO @ SchedJoules
@rrhoover The Interesting Calendars in Sunrise were provided by SchedJoules / https://www.schedjoules.com/, so it's good to hear from @jeremylv that their users loved them ;) We currently offer more than 500.000 calendars worldwide in the categories Sports, Holidays, TV shows, Weather, Finance, and Lifestyle. Our Public Calendar API is integrated in several heavily used calendar apps like iCalendar and Business Calendar. And a month ago we launched the first version of the next big thing, our local event discovery API, together with aCalendar on Android. Most users have no automatic go-to when finding events like movies, concerts, expositions, activities with kids, holidays, sports games or TV shows. The result is that finding events is an inefficient process with often disappointing results. So instead of having to search for events, we connect these users and events through apps that they already use every single day. We combine global and local event sources into a single Event Discovery API and SDKs which can be integrated by heavily used apps like calendars, maps, messengers and virtual assistants. We were selected for the Startupbootcamp E-commerce 2016/17 program in Amsterdam, so if you want to know more, check out the demo day pitch at
