Hey, how was going everyone? so we are back with another very helpful article about the best Calendar Apps. So Apple’s calendar app is bare bones, and there are way cooler options in the market that you have not even known yet. Nope, I’m not talking about Fantastical or anything else you’ve heard about before.
I am talking about some actually new, innovative, really useful apps like the ultra-minimal Tweak, Motion with its happiness-focused AI-powered algorithm, Routine, which is a calendar with Notion-like abilities, and Track, which aims to make scheduling effortless.
Now, Apple’s calendar app is fine; it’s free, it’s basic, and it gets the job done, but it’s really boring. The apps I’m about to show you, on the other hand, are gonna blow your mind in terms of what a calendar app can be.
So guys in case you’re new over here, my name is Shahid and I have been a blogger for sense 4 years. Also, I’ve been an Apple iOS and Android user for the past 10 years. Also, I love to write blogs to share my knowledge in the form of blogs with more and more people. So on that note without wasting any more time let’s get into it.
NEXT-LEVEL Calendar Apps That Make Your Life So Much More Organized
Tweek: Minimal To Do List
Now, Tweak is the simplest calendar that we’re gonna look at today, and it does something very interesting. It gets rid of the hourly view and instead is built around a weekly calendar experience. Now, the result of getting rid of that hourly view is less stress, they say, and actually, I think I agree. I don’t like that hourly view.
So, Tweak is actually inspired by good old paper planners, which don’t have millions of templates. It is actually very minimal. So, one effect of having this more lightweight calendar experience is that you might feel more focused because there are fewer features to distract you.
Now, that said, it’s not feature-free. So, there are subtasks, checklists, shopping lists, notes, formatted rich text, along with a few other interesting features. One of which is really intriguing to me, is the automation of recurring tasks. And interestingly, there’s an option to print out their calendar template,
The last thing I want to point out about Tweak though is that it began its life as a spreadsheet, which is just kind of interesting. The creators have been using this technique forever, but it morphed into an iPhone, iPad, and Mac app.
Motion: Tasks & AI Scheduling
Motion is a calendar app that uses AI to automatically build your schedule, which is highly compelling to me, and you gotta love the marketing here. It says Motion is so good it’s like having 13 months in the year. So, get rid of your to-do list, your calendars, and your project management tools, and meet Motion. It’s the app that uses artificial intelligence to plan your and your team’s day.
So, what it does is it takes your meetings, your tasks, and your projects, and it builds you the perfect daily schedule. The promise here is this automate planning and forget nothing, save the equivalent of 30 days per year. Now, it’s all just marketing hype, obviously, but even if you save a little bit, like sometimes just saving a few minutes every day can be worth it because if something sticks in your mind as if that takes too much time, there’s too much friction, something as simple as just planning something out, it can really throw you off.
Now, this team is obviously very confident that you’re going to like their app. I can see why though because it can do things like automatically rebuild your schedule when something unexpected comes up. So, not only does Motion incorporate three proven productivity strategies, mainly planning, deep work, and time blocking, but here’s a calendar app of all things that calls its algorithm the happiness algorithm because it’s designed to maximize your happiness and satisfaction while increasing your productivity.
Routine: Calendars & Tasks
Routine is the next calendar app I want to show you, and while AI is much less of a focus here because you’re in complete control of your schedule, the killer feature here is unification. It’s got the ability to bring in everything you have going on from apps like Gmail, Trello, Slack, and over 4,000 other potential integrations and put them all together in one neatly organized and powerful console.
So, from email to chat to project management, there’s just about no type of task that can’t be imported here. And then there’s also natural language input for capturing new items within the console. Now, one interesting feature here is the ability to save ideas as actionable notes. It’s almost like somebody stapled on Notion to a calendar app. That’s what this feels like.
AI does still play a role here in Routine, so once you dial in your schedule, then Routine’s AI will protect your agenda and optimize your time through its smart scheduling feature. Importantly for certain users out there, Routine has meeting features baked right in. So, you’re going to get notified when that Zoom meeting is about to start, and you can just join through a single keyboard shortcut while also taking your actionable meeting notes.
So, if you’re looking for a full-featured hyper-car of a calendar app that adds in planner, universal inbox, and dashboard features, then give Routine a look.
Alright, so Track’s goal is to make scheduling effortless for high-performing professionals who live by their calendars and value time. How, you ask? Well, scheduling is built right in with customization and automatic time zone conversions, including effortless team scheduling. If you work with a team, and it’s hard to get everyone to agree on a time, this solves that. It also features intuitive recurring invites, allowing you to seamlessly create a recurring Zoom call in under 12 seconds.
Efficiency is key, and similar to Tweak, which we discussed earlier, Track defaults to that day view, making it easier to join calls with one click and quickly send emails if you’re running late—although,
Alright, so you’ve seen all these great new options, but the question remains: which one should you get? If you want something different, simple, and not overwhelming with a bunch of whiz-bang features, check out Tweak. On the other hand, if you have about $34 laying around every month and want the Rolls-Royce of calendar experiences or you find that your lazy self needs help staying organized, check out Motion.
For me, Motion is the most impressive thing on this list, not just because I’m super lazy, but because it’s cool. It’s expensive, but maybe worth it, and it offers a seven-day free trial. If you don’t want to replace all your existing tools and apps but integrate them into one mega dashboard, go with Routine. It’s your best bet. Finally, if you’re looking for a bespoke calendar experience prioritizing speed without making you learn a bunch of new features, check out Track.
