What is a beta?
Catalyst Planner is currently in a Beta testing period. This means that while the app is nearly finished, we are still updating a few features before it is ready for release. The Beta period allows for anyone to sign up and test the current version of the app for free. Since this is not the final version of the app, keep in mind that there still may be bugs, which we encourage you to let us know about. This will help make Catalyst Planner the best possible app.
When will Catalyst Planner be released?
We are doing our best to release Catalyst Planner as soon as possible. We anticipate being ready for Summer 2017. Be sure to check back often for updates.
