Tech Tuesday: Apps to Keep Life on Schedule
Let’s get real, life is busy!
Between the kids’ baseball game, appointments with the doctor, work, cooking dinner and whatever else life throws at you, how do you keep it all straight?
In this week’s Tech Tuesday, we’re checking out four apps to help you keep life on schedule through the chaos.
A busy schedule can seem a lot more manageable when presented in a clean format. Fans of Moleskine planners will love the Timepage app, which sports the same simple design. But the app does much more than that. Timepage integrates weather forecasts, maps, contacts, ride-sharing platforms and tons of other useful features. You can use the monthly heat-map to check out your free time at a glance. Timepage is the smart calendar to help you keep your life on track.
I am one of those people who are constantly adding notes to my phone, then spend way too long trying to find the right one when I need it. If you’re like me, consider giving Agenda a try. The note-taking app with calendar-like tendencies organizes notes chronologically, making it perfect for people juggling multiple projects and endless activities. With Agenda, you won’t have to spend time searching keywords or rummaging through folders. Agenda lets you see notes across different projects sensibly displayed on a timeline. All you need to do is tag each note with a date or attach it to a calendar event. Your notes can then easily be transformed into HTML or Markdown formats.
If you find yourself too busy to scribble down appointments, Fantastical 2 is the app for you. The app lets you add calendar events with just your voice. It makes it easy to create events and reminders, then share your schedule with others. The app keeps multiple calendar accounts in a neatly organized display.
If you’re looking for a serious app to keep track of your family’s busy schedule, check out Picniic. Picnicc lets you see a shared family calendar, to-do lists, special occasions and more with real-time location tracking of each family member. You can see who’s at practice, who’s running errands and when everyone will be home for dinner. The app also offers recipe planners, shared shopping lists and an info locker for medical, insurance or emergency documents. You can also add calendar events, reminders and updates verbally.
