Best Planner and Calendar Apps for Managing Your Busy Life

No matter who we are, chances are that we all have some pretty hectic schedules. While it would be nice to be able to do just whatever we want, when we want, that's not how the world works. We have to take care of things like work, school, spending time with family and friends, attending events, chores, projects, and anything else under the sun. It's not always fun and it can definitely be overwhelming at times. But when you have the right tools in hand, managing everything can be a bit easier. We've rounded up some of the best apps to help you get your life straightened out, so you can be sure to not miss that important event tomorrow!

Check Your Calendar

If you have a busy schedule daily, then it may be hard to keep track of everything. Fortunately, these great calendars don't let that happen.

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.

Calendars 5 is a complete solution for those who want to manage their schedules and their tasks from one central hub.

The app shows you your entire schedule in convenient month, week, day, or agenda list views so you can see everything you need in one glance.

It's a complete and comprehensive solution that makes planning your life easier than ever before.

Why we love it

We like Calendars 5 because it provides an all-in-one solution for those who want to see their schedule and tasks in one place, together. The app is simple and intuitive to use and has many powerful features that make scheduling and creating tasks a breeze.

iStudiez Pro Legendary Planner

Keep track of every assignment

For anyone wanting an all-in-one solution for getting their life together while in school.

Being a student just might be the most hectic part of your life. With so many things to worry about all the time, not to mention happenings in whatever small fragment of a life you have left outside of school, you're going to need a lot of apps. A to-do list, a calendar, a grade calculator, a scheduling app, an agenda, a contacts app ... the list goes on and on. That's where iStudiez comes in to save the semester with an all-in-one solution that can do all of the above and more. By inputting information about your semester including courses you're taking, when class components are scheduled, assignments and their weights, grades, professor contact information, and more, the app will magically combine all of this information together to always give you an overview of what's going on today and in the future. Plus, it all syncs across iOS devices and with your Mac, which makes managing your life that much easier.

Why we love it

The iStudiez Pro app greatly reduces the number of apps you need to manage college life, and is very versatile in considering different schedule types and grading schemes. It can handle virtually anything you throw at it.
