Easy Scheduler. FREE
Have you ever tried to arrange a common
meeting time amongst a group of people
only to be inundated with emails as to
who can meet when? Doodle solves that
problem. Set up the schedule, send out the
link and participants indicated when they
are available. At a glance you can determine
a common meeting time that fits into a variety
of schedules!

A scheduling tool.
I have used it to share my availability or schedule with teachers.
There is an iPhone and Blackberry App for this tool. It also syncs with Outlook and Google calendars.
