What’s the Best Replacement for the Calendar App?

The best replacement for the calendar app

While it’s incredibly convenient to have your calendar in a digital format that you can access from your phone, tablet or computer, there are still many productivity and design features that basic digital planners or calendar apps lack. 

Maybe you’re looking for a calendar app that does more than just keep track of meetings and appointments, but every app you look at is about the same. 

Maybe you’re trying to make the switch from a paper planner to a digital calendar or planner, but you can’t find anything that offers everything your paper planner does.

Or maybe you’re tired of looking at the boring interface of your current calendar app, but you haven’t seen an app that allows you to let your creativity roam free.

For so long, I tried to make paper planners work for my lifestyle, but they just didn’t. I searched for a digital calendar app or digital planner that contained all of my favorite aspects of paper planners, but there wasn’t one.

The calendar app I needed and wanted didn’t exist, so I created it.

Enter: Artful Agenda

I created Artful Agenda because I wanted something more than just a basic calendar app. If you’re looking for a digital planner that can incorporate meal planning, water tracking, goals and your unique personality all in one calendar app, Artful Agenda is perfect for you.

Sync It With Your Current Calendars

With Artful Agenda, you don’t have to worry about starting from scratch with a new calendar app because it syncs with Google, Apple and Outlook. All you have to do is sign into your current accounts within our app. 

Sync your Google, iCloud, Microsoft calendar

Personalize Your Calendar

Unlike many other digital planners, Artful Agenda allows you to choose from a wide variety of cover options, and you don’t have to stress about picking your favorite one and sticking with it. The majority of our covers are free, and you can change them at any time! Many of our users even use color hex codes to match their calendars to the cover of their choice

Artful Agenda also comes equipped with digital planning stickers. You can use these to showcase your creativity, mark milestones, and highlight important activities.

Plan Your Meals

The week view in Artful Agenda has a designated area for planning your meals for each day. These meal plans then auto-populate into the meals section of the day view as well, so you only have to add them once. This makes grocery shopping and budgeting for food a breeze.

Track Your Water Intake

If you struggle with drinking enough water (and honestly, who doesn’t?), you’ll love the water tracker in Artful Agenda. Tracking your eight glasses a day is now as simple as opening your calendar app and looking at the day view. Learn more about using Artful Agenda as a water tracker.

Set Up Rollover and Repeating Tasks

These are newer, highly requested additions to the app. You can set up rollover and repeating tasks within Artful Agenda to make sure you never accidentally miss or forget something. 

With our rollover tasks, any task that is not checked off on the day it is originally assigned will automatically rollover to the next day. This is great for things that need to get done, but have more flexible deadlines.

Repeating tasks are tasks that you set up to appear on your calendar at certain intervals. You can have tasks repeat daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly. 

Organize Your Goals

Artful Agenda has dedicated sections for Monthly Goals and Weekly Goals, as well as a Priority Task sections for each day. These areas are perfect for breaking down big goals into smaller tasks so that you can more easily achieve them. If you want to learn more about why goal setting is important and how Artful Agenda can help you achieve your goals, you can read about that here.

Keep Track of Appointments and Meetings

This should go without saying, but I’m going to say it anyway: Artful Agenda is a great place to keep track of all of your meetings and appointments, aka exactly what your current calendar app is doing. Artful just also gives you the ability to do all of the above in addition to this.

    Is there a way to put this on my laptop with a Chrome browser? It would be much more useful to me there, rather than on my phone.

    Hi. I love this idea. Is there a way to access this from laptop, tablet and cell phone? Basically, if I input everything on my laptop (bigger and easier to to see) will it automatically sync with the tablet and cell phone? Or do I have to input separately on those devices?
    Thank you.

      Hi Christy! Currently you can only use the sticker available through Artful Agenda but being able to upload your own stickers is solidly on our roadmap for future development. Stay tuned to our social media for announcements for new feature releases!

      We don’t currently have a native print function but most users will use their computer’s snipping tool and get a screen capture and print from that.
