App Store Description

JotTheDate: your great freehand Calendar !
Why type your calendar events? Just draw with JotTheDate.
Handwrite your note as text or sketch, and JotTheDate will show the event or reminder in the Calendar.

Whether it’s a scribble, a sketch, or a smiley, this calendar app lets you add your events by drawing them with a finger on the screen.
You can add appointment reminders, notes, travel time, and more. So, you can be creative and sketch your way to your next event, choosing your color and brush size. Just draw or write your event with your finger. Sketch a heart for your anniversary dinner, a necktie for your business meeting, or a book for your college class. Can’t draw? Jot down your pet’s name for their vet appointment, the name of the club where you are meeting your friends, or the name of the park for your kid’s play date.
You can also give the event a name if you like for viewing in other calendar apps. Add the basics you need like the location and start and end times. You can have it repeat, invite others, and set up two different alerts.
Your events can also be All Day, contain notes and a URL, and be added to a specific calendar if you have more than one.
The app also works without an Internet connection.

JotTheDate is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, iPod touch and Mac. Once downloaded with your Apple account, you can use it on all your devices.
Using your iCloud account all events, reminders and sketches will be automatically shared and synced in all your devices.

You will not be forced to use the iPhone or iPad keypad to enter an event: just draw with JotTheDate!

If you simply wish to draw or type a quick note as a reminder, you can do it with the Reminders view.

All events and reminders are shared with any other iOS and macOS Calendar app and existing events and reminders are automatically loaded: just launch JotTheDate !
JotTheDate fully integrates with all existing calendars.

JotTheDate supports various standard views:
• Day
• Week
• Month
• Year

Awesome for your work during the week. On Mac and iPad you may choose a grid view or a vertical format with the days all side by side.

JotTheDate automatically syncs all your iOS devices.
Make a change in a device and it will be synced in all others.

You can edit events and reminders even without Internet connection. The changes are saved and synced in all other devices when you get online, with iCloud.

Do not forget any appointment. You may set alerts for all events. Alerts appear on your iPhone, Apple Watch or iPad even when the screen is off.
