This is the best Electronic Planner I have found to date, and Ive used quite a few.
I use this application to manage my Class’, Work, Exercise, and the tasks i need to complete on a daily basis.
Works on iMac, macPro, iPad, iPhone.
5$ a year to use on iPhone. However I purchased the subscription, and then cancelled the subscription it immediatly, so it will remain full featured too the end of the year.
If you remember to hit the Update Button on each of your devices, calendar edits stay in sync.
Glitch: In Week view, the time listed on the side in grey (Picture 3 of 5 above) does not match the time of created events (colorful blocks you create)
In my personal opinion i find this very upsetting as the software costs $25 (at the time of my purchase and this writing)
So in order to correctly see the gaps between events (in week view) you have to click on the next event and see what time it starts.
Day View Works well, and conviently lists tasks of the day in the left column.
i.e.: It’s not as seamless as a mac user is used too when creating an event.
right click on the spot where an event is too be created (the generated time is hit or miss)
Then name the event (it is auto set to your default calendar color, and default set event time (understandable, but annoying))
Hit Enter to accept the event
Next, Right click on the even you just created
Click “Get Info”
The frame you would expect to see the first time opens up
Now you can set the duration of the event, Color, date, etc..
This needs to be improved..
i.e. Adding a calendar. I will list the steps as many reviews say it cannot be done. And they are wrong.
Common Misconception: Clicking the little Calander button at the top of the app (between update and add event) will alow you to add a new calander.. NO. this is wrong.
To add a New Calander that does not previously exist:
Open the Calendar app (Apples Calendar app that came default with your computer, NOT planner Pro app)
In the Menu Bar (The thin bar at the top with the apple logo in it), click File, click new Calendar, Select ‘On My Mac' (or ‘iCloud' your choice)
A new Blank Calendar will appear in the (Apple) Calendar app.
Name it, Set the Color, etc.
NOW, go to the Planner Pro app.
NOW, click the little Calander button at the top of the app (between update and add event).
Your new calendar(we just created in apples calendar app) will be listed here, and you can check the box next to it, and begin using it in Planner Pro.
This needs to be improved..
Summary: Electronic Day Planners are not Paper Day Planners, hence the name. Give yourself an ample adjustment period and you will see this far surpass’ a Paper Planner in many ways.
Overall, this is a good electronic calendar, despite the Glitch and Improvement areas listed. Many other Day Planning applications have many more problems than this one
