How does the web app look and feel to use?

CronSync has a very eye-catching grey and purple color scheme that works well. Although most professional applications favor blue, the purple of CronSync seems to give it a unique personality all its own. Rounded data entry fields and user friendly tables with different colored rows also make the application easy to read without detracting from its visual appeal.

How does the registration process work?

A new user who would like to create a trial CronSync account can click on the purple “Try it for free” button found in the lower, right hand corner of the homepage. The user will find the short registration form along the right hand side. This can also be accessed simply by scrolling all the way down while on the homepage. The form requires an email address, password, company name and desired subdomain name. The user must also check the terms and conditions box at the bottom of the form to continue. After checking the black and white “Send” button, the user is advised that they should check their email inbox for a confirmation message that contains a link which must be clicked to complete registration.

What does it cost to use the application?

According to the CronSync FAQ, anyone can test out the application for free. There are no subscription fees at this time or other charges for doing so. Eventually this will change. The site currently notes that the subscription service will be rolled out in approximately two months. Users who create a free test account will be given a five Euro discount on the cost of each user per month. No further information is provided regarding the per user price for a CronSync subscription.

Who would you recommend the application to?

CronSync is a tool for anyone who has a team and needs to find a way to manage billing and projects. The price of the application is still unknown, but it seems to be aimed at smaller businesses.
