I have been using paper for a daily planner for over 20 years now. In other words I still do it in old school fashion. I am interested in changing my method to using my cell phones. I have the Galaxy Note 4 and the iphone 6 Plus. I am looking for suggestions for the best apps I can use as a daily planner to keep up with my gigs. It will be much easier than carrying the weekly paper calendar with me everywhere I go. What are your recommendations?

Google Calendar. Clean, easy to use and comes pre-installed on your Note 4.

Thanks Michael. I did find it on Note 4. It is not listed on iphone 6 Plus. But I did find CalenMob on iphone 6. I already have Pushbullet installed on both phones and my computer. If I type something on one of the devices, it can be sent to the other devices immediately. I will try to see if the gigs I put on Google Calendar will be sent to CalenMob.

What is a good daily planner that can be used on the computer? I was thinking about Outlook.

Posted: Nov 19, 2014 09:08 am Thank you again Michael. It is coming along just fine. I use Google Chrome to store it on my computer. I tried setting up with Outlook but I could not get it to set up. Maybe because I am trying to use the old 2007 version on Windows 8.

I changed from "CalenMob" to "Calenders" on my iphone 6 because "CalenMob" was requesting money for the pro version. "Calenders" on iphone 6 does sync with "Google Calendar."

If a virus occurs to one of the devices, everything should be saved on the other two devices.

I might uninstall Pushbullet since everything is syncing properly.

I know your services are not cheap. PM sent.

Here's two fantastic options - both for iPhone:

Things - this is a wonderful app, normally fairly pricy, that is FREE this week only in the Apple App Store. It costs nothing, so you'd be foolish not to at least try it out. It is recommended by many productivity experts.

Omnifocus - I've used this for years. It's very highly recommended by productivity experts. It's not cheap... but it's the best there is. Be warned... it has a VERY HIGH learning curve. For in-depth Omnifocus training, I recommend asianefficiency.com. They're the bomb.

Thanks Joe. I did install "Things." It is free as you mentioned for this week. The normal price is $34.99: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/things/i......t=uo%3D4 . I would install "Omnifocus,": https://www.omnigroup.com/omnifocus for the high price if I had a Mac computer and if it relates to the my Galaxy Note 4 and Microsoft PC.

Both have a professional style set up. They both look professional compared to Google Calender. But I will still have to use "Calender" and Google Calender the most because they relate to each other. When I put a schedule on one of my 3 devices (iPhone 6 Plus, Galaxy Note 4 and Microsoft PC), it automatically sends it to the other two.

I can vouch for Things. It is an incredible app for task management. Don't waste your money on Omni. I bought it last year when deciding whether to go with it or Things. While good, functionality is pretty much duplicated by Things, and Things has much more, like tagging. I stayed with Things for its awesome tagging features.

As you said, they are not really calendar apps at all. I think your setup of using Google Calendar is still an excellent choice, though. I use fantastical 2 for day to day scheduling apps, but the built in calendar app is still powerful until you move up to full blown database solution.

Let us know your thoughts after some use!

Best regards,
Scott

You are relying on your phone way too much. Nothing beats the old fashioned Franklin Planner or a Daytimer. Yes you have to actually be able to write (or even print) but nothing gets lost. Smile

Google Calendar syncs with IPhone 6 directly.

Also you could use the iCloud Calendar. It's saved in the Apple Cloud.

That's a quote from David Ginn and it's correct. The only 3 ways to book a show are by mail (include email,) on the phone, or in person. I suppose Divine Intervention might work for some but not for any human I know. Love it when Mike knows better than all the professionals. I notice he performs so much he has time to get one of the highest post counts on the site. Smile

He's just wearing his fisherman's hat Paddy. More baiting going on here once again.

Although I use my iPhone, I recently decided to also go old school when I saw this kickstarter campaign for the "Passion Planner"

Her goal was to raise $10,000, but she ended up raising $658,434.

This doesn't count people like me who ordered directly off her website.

It's all just so amazing to me since we live in such a wired world.

Inspiring for sure!
