For Google Calendar users who need to keep track of everything on the go

The official Google Calendar app lets you view your important calendars quickly in month, week, day, and schedule views. You can pull in events from Gmail, use reminders to go along with your events, add personal goals, create new events on the fly and even work with other calendars on your phone, like Exchange and iCloud.

Why we love it

When it comes to the calendar app you'll use every day on my iPhone, the native iOS Google Calendar, straight from the Google mothership, is the best calendar app out there. It looks and works the same way Google Calendar works on the web, and that’s the way we like it. No messing with sync or permissions: Google Calendar for iPhone is just that: Google Calendar on your iPhone.

Fantastical 2 for iPhone

One of the best calendars for your iPhone

Fantastical 2 for iPhone

Customize

Anyone who wants a gorgeous and intuitive calendar app with natural language input should use this.

Fantastical has quickly become the gold standard of calendar apps. This app has been overhauled for iOS 8 and brings with it some new tricks. Fantastical still has its innovative split view where you see the month and your list of appointments on a single screen. It still supports natural language input. It still looks amazing. Fantastical 2 integrates reminders. Just use the same plain English approach to create reminders that save right into iCloud. Some great enhancements include: a map on events with an address, a new light theme, the ability to open locations in Google Maps, and even Google Chrome support for URLs. There are more features and amazing parts to Fantastical 2 than anyone can say in a single blurb, so check it out for yourself and see what the hype is all about.

Why we love it

Fantastical 2 continues to be one of the most beautiful calendar apps around and the natural language support is superb. It is also intuitive to use and packs in plenty of features.

Timepage

Digitally plan your days with Moleskine

Timepage

Heat maps of your schedule

For those who like a classy and timeless look for their digital planners.

Moleskine Timepage is a feature-rich scheduling solution from the company who brought you the cult-classic analog notebooks and planners. In Timepage, users get a classic agenda-style interface of their calendar (fetched from the native Calendar, or you can sync with Google or Outlook) with the list view on the main screen. A swipe from the left takes you to the monthly views, where you get heat maps of how busy a day is so you can plan accordingly from a glance. Tapping on a day shows you all of the day's events in a list, and you can even get a quick overview of the weather or an hourly forecast. Selecting events reveals more details like a map, how long it will take you to get there via various modes of transportation, who else is attending, any notes, and more.

Why we love it

Timepage also makes use of natural language input for creating new events so you don't have to fiddle around with annoying text boxes, and everything about the appearance can be customized to your liking, including the colors. We love Moleskine Timepage because it has a super tasteful design that is not obnoxious or cluttered, and the colors really compliment the aesthetics well. It's easy to see how your schedule is going to be from a glance, and the extra bits of data that you get from viewing events is a great touch.

Share Your Calendar

When you want to share your schedule with friends, family, or coworkers, try an cool calendar app designed just for it.

Doodle: Easy Scheduling

Take the pain out of figuring out when everyone is available.

Doodle: Easy Scheduling

Create polls on the go

For anyone trying to get a group of people in the same place at the same time.

Getting multiple people to meet in the same place at the same time can be tough. When you have a group of individuals – whether students or coworkers – who all have varying schedules, it can get even harder. Doodle allows you to easily send a poll to anyone asking them to indicate whether they are available or busy for set time slots, and the best part is that an account is not required for filling out polls. Doodle also offers some advanced features. For starters, you can allow users to select "if need be" times, that way you can make sure everyone is free and that it's convenient for most. Polls can optionally be set as private, so only administrators can view responses, and they can also be used as sign-up systems for events by only allowing users to choose a select amount of options, or to have a maximum number of attendees per time slot. While Doodle has been known to be web-based, the iOS app in particular allows users to create, modify, and respond to polls on the go. The best part is being able to receive notifications for when participants respond. This makes it a must-have for any Doodle user.

Why we love it

Doodle is the easiest way to find out when everyone's available, and also offers the best iOS solution for this that we've found. Being able to keep up with polls in a desktop web browser, along with in the mobile app with push notifications, makes it easy to use while balancing a busy lifestyle.

Traditional calendar apps aren’t ideal for shift workers. You don’t necessarily work a traditional Monday to Friday 9-5 job. That makes it hard to keep track of when you’re working, especially with early morning and overnight schedules.

Shifts solves this problem with a simple solution. Create your own custom shifts using our attractive icons and color picker, then add them to your calendar with just one tap.

You can add up to 2 shifts per day, or setup a shift rotation and apply it to your Shifts calendar all at once. This makes it easy to enter an entire month – or even year’s worth of shifts in less than a minute! See any of your upcoming shifts right from the lock screen.

After you’ve entered your shifts, you can view them in our beautiful month view calendar, or in a handy list format. You can overlay your personal calendar on top, so you’ll know when you have things going on outside of work.

With just a tap you can share your schedule with friends, family, and co-workers – whether they’re using Shifts or not.

Built exclusively for iOS 8 and Apple’s latest iPhones, Shifts is the modern way to keep track of your work schedule.

********************************************************

CREATE SHIFTS

Add as many shifts as you’d like, and choose your own icon and headerr for each shift type.

SHARE YOUR SCHEDULE

VIEW UPCOMING SHIFTS RIGHT IN THE WIDGET

See your schedule without even opening up the app, right from the lock screen, or from inside any other app.

SET UP CUSTOM SHIFT ROTATIONS

Set up shift rotations and Shifts will automatically apply your shifts over any date range you choose – great for repeating schedules (e.g. a 3-week schedule that repeats for 4 months).

Happy Birthday Greeting

Happy Birthday Greeting

iThinkdiff

Happy birthday greetings and happy birthday reminder app.
Never forget anyone’s birthday again—but also don’t waste your time copying and pasting everyone’s birthday into an app. Birthday Reminder can import birthdays directly from the contact information already stored on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Quickly send cool birthday greetings from the app.

Key Features:
------------------------
• Add birthdays manually or import them instantly from your contact database.
• Cool birthday greetings provided
• A birthday notification is sent to you 3 days before each birthday so you can buy a gift or send a birthday card by mail.
• Upcoming birthdays listed by soonest first so you always know whom you need to shop for next.
• A final notification on each birthday will make you alert.
• Export birthdays so that you can add in other apps or calendar

You can customize Birthday Reminder to suit your needs. By default it reminds you about birthdays three days before the event, but you can give yourself more time for shopping or filling out cards by setting the reminder earlier.

Another notification gets sent to you on the day of the birthday; you can disable it if you don’t need it. And, unlike some notification apps, you can change the notification time so it doesn’t disturb you during other important events.

The application includes two calendar modes. One mode provides a countdown-like list for each birthday, displaying the nearest birthdays first so you can start preparing for them. The other mode provides a traditional monthly calendar with birthdays highlighted so you can make plans for celebrating on the nearest weekend.

And all of this information is available without requiring you enter it. Just pull from your iPhone or iPad contact database to get the birthdays for everyone you know.
