Staying organized can at times be counterproductive if you aren’t doing it the right way. The key to staying on top of your obligations and work load is to create a system that work’s best for you. Having a calendar where you can visualize assignments and due dates can be a huge asset. While iCal calendar is certainly the most commonly used calendar app used, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the most efficient platform out there. We have carefully and thoroughly tested these 3 calendar apps that we believe will really help to keep you organized:
For iPhone users, Fantastical 2 is likely one of the most popular calendar apps on the market right now, and with good reason. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch making it easily accessible no matter if you are at you are at home or on the run. One of the most helpful features of the app is the dashboard view it provides for easy access to your schedule. The app also offers the option to set reminders and alarms, which is helpful to people who tend to easily forget due dates and times.
Don’t worry Android users, we haven’t forgotten about you! If you are using an Android and looking for a calendar app we highly suggest CloudCal. For the people who learn best visually, this is the app for you. The app creates color coordinated “Magic Circles” to organize your daily tasks and reminders into categories. For example, if you have a meeting at 3:00pm and dinner reservations at 6:30pm, the app would systematically group them into different colored circles so that you can visualize personal and work obligations. The app is free to download, but for $3.95 you can upgrade to unlock features including the ability to call an Uber through the app and even use google maps. Seriously a dream app!
For users where meeting new clients and having important meetings often is the norm- Accompany is the app for you. The app is free and allows you to set up a profile with your work email and the app will provide you with profiles of people and companies that you have upcoming meetings with. It can be confusing trying to remember names, companies, and titles of people when you are swamped with several meetings a day. This app certainly helps to keep you prepared and informed.
