Meet my pal... Pocket Informant HD. It is an app on my iPad, it is also my BFF. I love this guy. It is the most expensive app I have ($14.99) but worth every penny!
First off... do you see the colors. Yep... you can color code things. So hubby has a color, son #1 has a different color, son #2 has a different color, son #3 a different color, grad classes a different color.... you get the idea. I can add cute little icons to make them more fun. FUN is awesome. There are tons of pictures. I can view it as a monthly calendar, a weekly one or a daily one. I can see years in advance or years in the past.
It has a to-do list and if I want it to, it will show up on my calendar. It has an alarm to yell at me if I forget something or I can turn it off and ignore him.
It has all my contacts sinked into it. Yes..... everyone is here. I can easily add a doctor's appt and his address and phone number pops right up in my scheduled appointment. It has pictures, so I can see who I am looking at. It takes the photos off of my Facebook and adds them there. I can set my ICE in my contacts easily and I use the notes section under each family member to list there allergies, dates of serious injuries, or medical conditions. This way if a doc asks, I can tell them. I also use the notes section on my appointments to fill in what happened when I was there. So if a doc asks what a different doc says and when, wala... I flip and there it is. Contact history is also stored in my contacts. SUPER easy to find! Oh and the birthdays from my contacts now appear in my calendar. =)
And there is a random note section as well. Just type in reminders for whatever and wa la. Its all there. Simple and easy.
It is also set up to do project planning and goal achieving. I just don't use those functions. I can view everyone's calendar at once or just a certain one. It syncs with my Google calendar (which I no longer use thanks to this baby!). It can also sync with Outlook and Toodledo.When hubby keeps asking when something is, I add him as a participant to the event and walla... it emails him.
I LOVE this! It keeps me sane. I was a paper gal for many, many years. I searched and searched for something I could love but never found one. I am sure if I found Erin Condren all those years ago I would be happy but paper has been replaced!
What do you do to keep track of all of your appointments?
