Academic calendar serves as a reference in planning and management of academic activities at a University. Many universities that include the academic calendar on web pages or in the form of a specific file format to be accessible. The trend of smartphone use is growing rapidly, making the academic calendar potentially developed into a mobile application that can help the management of academic activities become more effective and efficient. Pocket KalDik that incorporates the principles of the calendar and social media, allows the user to create learning schedule virtually and dynamically distribute the information of activities at the University in a real-time. This can indirectly help increase the productivity of education in the academic community. Pocket KalDik is a mobile application implemented with the Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture model. Pocket KalDik is expected to improve productivity and better time management for students and other academic community.
