Capsule is an application that helps people plan, share and remember their group experiences with others. Users of Capsule can maintain several capsules at a time from their command center.

Capsules are free to start and people can be invited to it via Facebook or through email. On a capsule's main page, users can get an event's details, invite others and update the capsule's settings. Each capsule can also maintain a photo album so groups can view images from the event, the people and remember the happening fondly. Users can even download the photos to their computer as well. Each capsule has built-in texting capabilities as well so members can communicate through their mobile device. Overall capsule is a place for groups to chat about upcoming events or reminisce over past ones.Show more screenshots »
The Capsule app was created in 2011 by Cyrus Farudi and Omri Cohen. Omri, for example, had 14 weddings and 9 bachelor parties to attend in a single year! Being frustrated with the lack of solid group communication solutions that allowed for planning, chatting and photo sharing, they decided to create an app themselves. Capsule is based out of Manhattan Beach in California.
Capsule offers both a web and mobile version of its app and combines many of the features that groups could find useful such as photo sharing, chat functions, texting capabilities and more. It is probably one of the more comprehensive group apps out there.
Capsule is a little overwhelming at first since there are so many features. It takes a while to figure out what one can do with this service. However, one can pretty easily start playing around and exploring the app's capabilities to see how it will best work for them. The app is well-designed, professional looking and it has a somewhat logical layout. There were no bugs or errors encountered while trialing this application.
To register for Capsule users can click on the "Sign Up" link in the upper-right hand corner of the homepage. From there, the app will request one to input their first and last name, email address, password and cell phone.
Capsules are free and users can create as many capsules as they'd like.
Capsule is great for anyone who is organizing an upcoming group event or who wants to document a past event for their circle of friends. Really, it could be used for weddings, birthdays, parties, reunions and more!
