These days, iPhone and iPad users can choose from hundreds of task and planning apps. What about Mac users? What if you hate day planners because they’re so complicated?
When it comes to digital day planners, one this is absolutely for sure. Not everyone agrees which one is the best. It’s mostly a personal preference.
For the Mac user who’s intimidated by typical digital day planners, there’s DayMap.
This clever day planner substitute looks just like planners from yesteryear, complete with a little faux leather cover.
Remember those desktop planners that combined a task list with a calendar of events? That’s DayMap.
It’s a visual representation of tasks, neatly categorized, with a calendar, and the whole shebang covers the Mac’s entire screen.
Here’s what it looks like. Familiar, no?
DayMap is incredibly simple to setup and use.
Click the New Project button to create a new project that will have multiple tasks. Then, click the New Task button to create a task for a project.
Task items in the calendar have a check box to click when the task is completed. The top scroll bar slides to hide or reveal completed tasks.
Visually, DayMap is very much pre-internet, circa early 1990s when day planners were all the rage. There’s a less expensive iPhone version that also syncs data between devices using iCloud.
There’s not much in the way of bells and whistles. Clearly, DayMap is for the visual crowd that needs a quick look at what’s coming, and a place that easily captures daily tasks.
