One of the things I love about having my iPhone on hand is that I’ve always got a calendar with me. But I’ve always felt like using the stock Calendar app was similar to using a public restroom: I’m in and out and doing my thing as quickly as possible. I don’t want to spend a lot of time in there. It got a little better with the iPhone 5′s taller screen, but it’s still not great.
There are a lot of great calendar alternatives available in the open market. In fact, we’ve reviewed some great ones here at AppStorm, including the popular Fantastical, which blew our minds with its natural language processing. Recently though, I’ve had the opportunity to test Horizon, a great calendar app with a gorgeous interface that combines weather, natural language processing and your upcoming events. Read on to find out why this app could be giving Fantastical a run for its money. (more…)
Calendars are very personalized utilities, detailing an individual’s most important events and tasks, and maybe letting them jot down a note or two. No wonder visual calendars are all the rage these days. Fans seem to be in love with the ability to tailor their daily, weekly and monthly timetables just a little bit more with the pictures and artworks of their choosing.
Add to this function an ability to create alerts, visual sorting features and managing easy-to-create entries and the combination equals Moredays, the app that prides itself on being a digital planner that blends elements of a scrapbook. Can Moredays be a great addition to your app collection? Find out on the other side of the break. (more…)
IOS users love utilities such as the Calendar, Reminders and Notes. They save trees by digitally writing stuff down instead of using Post-its. They also succeed in keeping you, your thoughts and your commitments organized. But what if you could take their features a step further by integrating them all into one app? That’s the aim of Awesome Calendar.
The all-in-one app pulls features from these apps (or, more specifically, their Google counterparts) to give you a more comprehensive view of your daily tasks. Can Awesome Calendar’s one-screen view and use of visual aids streamline all of your to-do lists and tasks? Find out after the break. (more…)
I, like many of you I’m sure, am a very busy person. For example, today I’ve scheduled the next two hours to work on AppStorm projects, then I have lunch, I clean my office between 1 – 1:30 pm, I’ve got an appointment to talk about a book I’m working on at 2 pm, then a meeting with a PR rep at 4:15. Oh, and I’ve got to be home by 5:30 to meet my son who is getting dropped off by his grandparents.
Organizing a day like this can be an exercise in futility, particularly when you rely on the built-in Calendar app in iOS. So when it came for me to try to find a new calendar with better options, I went with the popular Calvetica Calendar. We reviewed the Classic version of the app back in January 2011, but what makes the higher end version so much better? Let’s find out. (more…)
