For many people, the calendar is the most important productivity tool on their iPhone. No matter how busy you may be, it’s important to keep track of your schedule so that you’re prepared for what lies ahead. Between multiple work trips and planning for a wedding, there are number of appointments and events I need to keep straight, and I rely on my calendar to do so.
I’ve never cared much for the first-party Calendars app, and have jumped from a number of third-party apps such as Agenda, Fatastical and Calendars+ (a few of which I’ve reviewed on AppStorm). But since its release in February, I’ve been using Sunrise Calendar as my go-to schedule maintenance tool, which I’ve found to be an interestingly new take on how a iOS calendar app functions.

A few weeks back, I get this Facebook invite for a party held downtown. I’m all excited about going, so I RSVP via Facebook, and next thing I know I’m planning for the big event. Then I get an email. “If you’re coming, please RSVP using Eventbrite, that’s how we’ll know who’s coming.” Huh. Eventbrite.
Although I had heard of the app before, this was my first opportunity to try it out, so that’s just what I did. What were the results? Well let’s find out! (more…)
I have task management apps and shopping list apps and calendar apps, all in an attempt to keep me and my husband on the same page. The sheer number of apps we use to do all this almost guarantees someone’s going to get crossed wires somewhere. Avocado is putting all of that and more into a single app, designed for couples, to organize the business of being together. Is there enough in Avocado’s one app to keep us rolling, or are we going to end up driving off the rails? (more…)
I’m a calendar junkie. The way some people collect to-do apps, I tend to have lots of different calendars all over my iPhone, iPad and Mac, and very few stick. I’ll use one for a month or two, then off to the next or back to an old favorite. I have lots of different options.
But one that has stuck on my Mac is Fantastical. Not only is it quick and easy to use, but it’s just so natural. When I was contacted by the developers and given a sneak peek at the app, well I just had to jump on it. Will the magic transfer to my iPhone or is Fantastical a Mac-only purchase? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
There are a lot of calendar apps, but it’s hard to get all of your events in one place. Finding a single app that syncs with everything is a big enough challenge. Now try presenting all those events and information from all over in a truly meaningful way, and you have a real job on your hands.
More than just a calendar app, Cue: Know What’s Next will sync not only all of your events in one place but just about any information you could need during your day. What Cue does is give context to your events, turning a calendar reminder into a chance to connect and engage. (more…)
While you can add all your friends’ birthdays to your calendar, if you just want to see a list of birthdays, your calendar app is going to make that a job of work, no matter how organized you are. Besides Notes or a good ol’ sheet of paper, organizing of all of your friends’ birthdays, your favorite team’s games or your work deadlines isn’t easy.
Pronto isn’t a calendar, though. More of a reminder app, Pronto gives you a place to organize all your big events. With the ability to create alarms and add to-do lists, this trimmed down little app packs a pretty big organizational punch. (more…)
So. Anyone have any plans for tomorrow? We do. It’s the big iPhone announcement, and we’ll be live tweeting the event via @iphoneappstorm (mute or unsubscribe if you don’t want to be assaulted by tweets).
But how do you find out about what’s new and cool in the Apple world? Do you follow live? Do you catch up later? How do you feel about nachos? Let us know in the poll to the right.
Do you ever plan an event and take the time to send out the invitations to people, only to find out that most of them can’t make it on that day? I know that has happened to me a few times and it sucks when that occurs because now you are stuck with either changing the event date or just cancelling it all together. Before you know it, it is taking more time to actually plan and coordinate the event than the time alloted for it.
If you have ever been in this predicament before, you know exactly what I am talking about and I think I came across a cool solution to help you out. Invy, which is an iPhone app that aims to make the process of planning an event simple and easy, just came out and I took it for a spin to see if it really could help me. (more…)
