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.

Google Calendar: Time Planner

Never miss a date again with Google Calendar

Get back to today

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.

Chaos Control™ Premium

Chaos Control™ Premium

Tarasov Mobile

Chaos Control Premium was created to help you manage your goals, to-do lists and tasks in both your business and personal life.

People don't usually achieve impressive results simply by being good at task management. It's the ability to set legitimate goals that makes the difference. Just write down your desired outcomes to make them real. This simple technique helps you to prioritize your goals before acting on them.

Chaos Control is a task manager based on the best ideas of GTD (Getting Things Done) methodology created by David Allen. Whether you are running a business, launching an app, working on a project or simply planning your holiday trip, Chaos Control is a perfect tool to manage your goals, juggle your priorities, and organize your tasks to get things done. And the best part is, you can handle both heavyweight project planning and simple daily routine like shopping list management in one flexible app. Also, Chaos Control is available across all major mobile and desktop platforms with seamless sync.

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:

1) MANAGE YOUR PROJECTS
Project is a goal combined with a set of tasks you need to complete in order to achieve it. Create as many projects as you like to write down all the desired outcomes you have

2) ORGANIZE YOUR GOALS
Create unlimited number of projects and group them by category using Folders

3) USE GTD CONTEXTS
Organize tasks from different projects using flexible context lists. If you are familiar with GTD you would just love this feature

4) PLAN YOUR DAY
Set due dates for tasks and make plans for any particular day

5) USE CHAOS BOX
Put all the incoming tasks, notes and ideas into Chaos Box in order to process them later. It works similar to GTD inbox, but you can use it as a simple to-do list

6) SYNC YOUR DATA
Chaos Control works on both desktop and mobile devices. Setup an account and sync your projects across all of your devices

This app is designed with creative people in mind. Designers, writers, developers, startup founders, entrepreneurs of all kinds and pretty much anyone with ideas and desire to make them happen. We combined the power of GTD with the convenient interface to help you with:
■ personal goal setting
■ task management
