Have looked for just this software for a long while!
DayMap is so easy to use, yet co-ordinates and keeps track of your calendar, running todos and projects. Just love it; waded through a lot of wasted money on other more complicated programs, but less usable than this little gem.
Not ready for grown-ups...
Figured since your app was recently updated, it wasn’t beta. Plus it’s 2.1.0. Yikes, was I fooled. Not ready for grown-ups: 1. Can’t create multiday tasks. That’s rock bottom basic. 2. It does not sync to iCloud. Have uninstalled, reinstalled several times from both Macs to try. Nope. 3. So can’t use between two Macs without re-entering data. (Really?) 4. It asks whether you want to “merge” data when you try iCloud sync. Then end up with garbage demo data infesting your own work. 5. Or select “overwrite”, get the message it can’t do that. Then de-selects the “Use iCloud” automatically. 6. Then open DM on the other Mac, the one with your data, it’s gone. Gone. 7. It does not sync with Apple Calendar. Select that and the app stares back uselessly. 8. No iPad. No Dropbox. No Evernote. To be fair, that was clear upfront. 9. It’s not a $10 app. It’s a 99-cent app, at best. Wish I’d saved the 10-spot to spend on the bottle of wine that I will need after wasting time on your amateur app.
The Best Time/Project Scheduler I’ve Ever Used.
Finally, I can see all the plates i’m spinning at once, and effortlessly arrange them, plan them, and work on them simultaneously. Thank you so much for such an intelligent design. I’ve paid a lot more money for organizers that are more confusing than they are useful. Awesome fresh layout. Great Job.
Visually appealing, logical, flexible
Showing a range of projects and tasks together with a calendar, and making it easy to schedule tasks by drag and drop, is an appealing way to keep track of and plan tasks. But the program could be even better: for instance, it would be nice to be able to add a series of tasks quickly, to slide the calendar along by day (for, say, dragging and dropping a task to next week), and to focus on a day at a time rather than always seeing a day in the context of the whole week. I’d also like to see an iPad app (the developer is working on this)—the companion iPhone app has a very different look and feel from this desktop app.
Update - new version
This latest update allows you to see in the upper (project) portion the first line of any note you have for the task. It’s a helpful reminder that there is more information that you wanted to remember. The calendar sync is a great addition. I don’t use Apple Calendar but I do have my Google Calendar synced with Apple Calendar so everything shows up. My two favorite features are the keyboard shortcut that lets you quickly add tasks no matter what program or screen you are in and being able drag tasks to new projects or dates. The colors make it easy to group each day’s tasks by project in the calendar or you can move tasks up or down within a day according to your current priorities or move them to a different day. Because the notes field is searchable you can use it to create your own tags. I enter the word “errand” in notes to keep track across various projects of things I need to do while I am out and about. It would be nice if there was a way to easily identify repeating tasks, however I use a symbol at the beginning of each repeating task that lets me to quickly identify it as having a repeat set and that works quite well. The one thing I would definitely like to see in a future edition is having the date on repeating tasks update to the next due date once the task is completed. Now the date remain as the date the repeating task was first scheduled (which could be months ago) making scanning the calendar week by week looking for the highlighted task the only way to find the next due date.
