Why

I love the app but it doesn’t have a widget for iPhone…
FRUSTRATED
by AliciaPL on 2021/10/14 02:27
I paid for the annual subscription, but I cannot access the account. When I select “forgot password,” I get a notification that there is no record of my email. According to my records, my subscription doesn’t expire until next year.

by Kaytmonster on 2021/10/13 16:09
I used to live and die by my Bujo. Problem being I didn’t always have it with me. Digital calendar programs like Google and iCal were not meeting my need for it to be appeasing to my eye. Thank goodness for Artful Agenda. The ability to work with my iCal, and have phone and computer interfaces is the best feeling in the world. I will admit I had taken a break from using it for about 3 months only using my iCal, but it bored me so much I had to come back.
Amazing!!!!
by LexxieK on 2021/10/13 12:01
This is by far the best digital planner I’ve ever used! I have tried everything since digital planners became available and this is the only one that does everything I need!!!! You won’t regret it if you choose to give it a try 💜💜💜
Love 💜
by Frustrated!1 on 2021/10/12 21:23
I was trying to decide if I was going to buy another paper planner or go fully digital. I did the trial period and then paid the annual subscription. I love how I can combine so many calendars into one! It has been amazing!!! I wish I could see the stickers on my phone, but maybe I’m doing something wrong. Love the new features of being able to change task lists names. The list section I use for journaling. It’s very pleasing to the eyes. Definitely worth the subscription and cheaper than a paper planner.
Love the idea
by Gemofamom on 2021/10/11 12:20
I love paper planners with all their color and stickers so I am excited to find it in my digital world. Look forward to planning with it!
SCAM- NO STARS!
by person who had their $ stolen on 2021/10/10 13:52
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A “FREE TRIAL”. It is a scam and they will charge you immediately. I signed up and 15 min later deleted and unsubscribed and was was CHARGED 3 days later.
Disappointed
by 682503MA on 2021/10/09 16:12
The app looks perfect. The layout might be everything I hoped and dreamed it would be. However, if you don’t link it to one of your existing accounts such as Google or iCloud you are not allowed to use the app. Not interested.
Like a digital Passion Planner
by snaxkattaxk on 2021/10/07 05:12
I’m admittedly 100% terrible at organizing myself so I need reminders everywhere and easily accessible at all times. I would carry a physical one around because it had the most effective format for me, so I’d have to write everything twice (in monthly then in weekly+hourly) and then try to copy everything into my phone somehow. But this one is the format I like, and already in my phone so now I’m working smarter not harder. I love it and the yearly price is worth it. My lack of executive functioning is doing a happy dance lol
can’t do anything without paying
by @kittycaticorn on 2021/10/06 15:55
they force you to pay before you can do anything
Great for teachers and families alike
by Quil of LightingBlade on 2021/10/06 01:45
I am thrilled to find an app that lets me feel a bit more organized. I can have the feel of my paper planner and also integrate with my husband’s calendar too! I would love a bit more space to make notes and organize them, but overall I am thrilled!
Love this app but want some updates
by Poolblueyes on 2021/10/05 22:00
I love this app. I’m moving from a paper planner to using my phone. This is easy to use and has the features I need. I would love to see some updates to the backgrounds, please!
Can’t get passed setup.
by hoffmac on 2021/10/04 21:24
My iPad will not allow me to generate a authenticate password between the two. The directions do not apply as it is already on and yet I can’t figure out how to generate a stupid password.
I made the switch!
by Jennifer B. Photography on 2021/10/03 19:55
This is my first digital planner and I love how it syncs with my calendars!!! Amen!
Love love love!!
by charmsfour on 2021/09/28 18:52
I love this app! I tried the paper planners but I always seemed to go back to my digital calendar - the paper planner felt like a chore plus it was super pricey once you add in stickers and stuff. Artful agenda is the happy medium because you can still have that planner feel but all digital! Way more affordable too!! And less waste too!! They keep adding more features which is also a plus!!
LOVE IT
by 5D Listener on 2021/09/28 15:01
It’s easy to use. Fun and pretty. Everything and more of what you love from a paperback planner.
KEEPS ME ON TRACK
by 8abs1965 on 2021/09/26 18:19
Love being able to quickly access my calendar, agenda and tasks in a variety of views. Really able to stay organized at my finger tips.
So far, so good.
by WildFlower01 on 2021/09/25 14:11
I’m still in the trial phase, but so far I’m liking it! I’m very new to the digital planner world. This is the second digital planner I’ve tried. I almost quit after trying the first digital planner, so I’m glad I found this one. It is so easy to figure out, especially with the tutorials. It’s like using my old paper planner! I especially love how it can sync between my iPad and iPhone, so I always have it with me! I also love how easy it is to sync my Google and iCloud calendars and I didn’t have to transfer everything over manually. It would be nice to have a bill tracker tab and more sticker options or the option to import stickers from other sources. But, those aren’t deal breakers, I would definitely recommend this app.
The best digital planner around
by Stick clan on 2021/09/24 15:52
I’m loving Artful Agenda’s features and layouts. My favorite is how incomplete tasks carry over to the next day. They have even updated the app recently so you can write on it with Apple Pencil.
Love This App
by kschap09 on 2021/09/24 13:34
This app has been a perfect balance of what I look for in a paper planner in an online, easy-to-take-anywhere format. It’s been perfect for me!
Thankful
by Love Debs on 2021/09/24 12:47
Love the app It has really helped me stay on top of everything. Always buy paper calendars and it only lasts a month, never have it with me when I need it. So love having this app with me all the time. Having trouble syncing the app on my PC. It’s on the PC but won’t update when I add on my phone. I am sure it’s user error so still give this app 5 stars.
Love love love this agenda!!!
by gillalexsoph on 2021/09/23 18:37
I have been looking for an electronic agenda that will connect all of my calendars and to do lists in one place that was pretty and customizable. Finally I found it! Now I don’t have to use 3 different apps to keep track of everything. It’s easy to use, eye catching, and works across all my Apple devices so I always have it with me. And now that I can write with my apple pencil it even more fun to use. This is a great app!
Love it
by ConnieCSF on 2021/09/23 15:38
Use it daily to keep on track. Love the new ability to write with my Apple Pencil.
Love the Agenda
by ChilePepper$$$ on 2021/09/23 15:34
This is such an easy to use and I love the colors that help me identify my many different events I have going also the time. I don’t like the Privacy or lack thereof, but other than that I would recommend the app.
Artful Agenda
by BDebnam on 2021/09/23 02:46
I’ve really been enjoying artful agenda. I’m looking forward to the opportunity for a few changes that may be built into the app in the future. In particular, I would like to see the opportunity to change the size of various sections. Can’t wait to see what functionality comes next!
Love
by tracyxoruddy on 2021/09/22 22:13
I’ve been using this planner for two years. It was the first digital planner I used and coming from paper and pen I must say it is not missed ! The ability to functional plan while still being able to decorate is amazing! I also love that my planner can be used on my computer, my iPhone , and my iPad ! It also gives me reminders for up and coming task and appointments! Seriously GET THIS PLANNER !!! Your going to LOVE it !!!
Planner Nerd Finds a Home
by dje303 on 2021/09/22 21:48
Paper is so hard for me to give up. I love writing in a journal or planner but then I get lost or don’t have space to haul all my planning notebooks around. So as a business women digital is how I need to live my life. A planner just has to sync to my calendars and then allow me to plan task, quick to dosa and quick notes and tracking around that synced calendar. I am fully enjoying and tweaking how I use Artful Agenda. There’s the best of both worlds here! No more digital downloads that I have to write everything in daily - but I have the freedom with my iPad to take notes or write a quick to do list just like those left behind planning not booked or digital planners. THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER I’ve been waiting on for years!!
Fantastic Planner
by mgradowski on 2021/09/22 20:00
I have a full time job and am a graduate student, so I have a very full schedule. This app is fantastic because I can use it across all of my devices and it allows me to easily access what I have going on. I also really like that I can color code everything to make it easier to see what I have at a glance.
Sticking with it
by Trish s on 2021/09/22 17:52
I have a million planners, paper and digital. But so far I am able to stick with Artful agenda. Easy to use with my iPad,phone, surface and MacBook. It’s helping me to stay on track.
Great planner
by Rarest Generic on 2021/09/22 17:44
I love the convenience of an electronic planner with the fun of a paper one. I do wish the loading/syncing times were better when updating events, and inputting times on mobile with the wheel (rather than typing the times in) is a bit clunky. But overall, amazing product and well worth the price!
Love it!
by A. Ohmie on 2021/09/22 17:10
This is perfect for a visual person that needs to be able to digitally coordinate calendars with others.
Great App!
by JV in Idalou on 2021/09/22 17:07
I really love this app! It is perfect for me, allowing me to keep several calendars in one place. I also really like being able to see the calendar on my phone, iPad and desktop. The colors, stickers and overall look satisfy my creative side.
Love this app
by lovinlifehard on 2021/09/22 15:43
I really love this calendar. I am very much a paper and pencil type girl but this planner has changed the way I do things.
Love this Calendar
by PatLngr on 2021/09/22 15:19
The ease of use in Artful Calendar has been a game changer. I love that I can personalize so many features and I love that I can share a calendar with my husband and keep my own reminder calendar separate. It is colorful and fun and I highly recommend it!
The best of both worlds
by Ang0522 on 2021/09/22 15:12
I tried so hard to be a paper planner person, but always failed and it was never convenient. Finally I get all the pretty design and ease of digital calendars in one. My planner dreams come true. There’s a few bugs, but they are always fixing them quickly. Don’t hesitate!
Loving this!
by 987567076 on 2021/09/22 14:48
I was always nervous to have a digital only calendar but this one has made the switch from paper so easy! I highly recommend!
Love the layout
by rakoczyj on 2021/09/22 14:47
I love the layout and different view options easily seen (month, week, day). So colorful and makes scheduling and follow ups so easy!
Cool
by BeautyKween777 on 2021/09/22 14:41
The features are cool and better than many I have tried so far.
InLove with My Agenda

Great App!
I love this agenda!
by Nene31055 on 2021/09/22 13:33
The features are great! It is an awesome accountability partner and satisfies both my left and right brain.
Love!!!
by JLHon on 2021/09/22 13:12
I love a planner and i love it on an electronic device. I also love the fact that I didn’t have to pay again just because I switched to Apple from Android
Perfect planner
by HeatherD61975 on 2021/09/22 12:52
I love the ease of this planner and being able to link to my google calendar is what I was looking for in a planner. My family can add or change events in their own calendar that is linked to my calendar making it easier to keep track of everyone’s schedule while I can enjoy the use of stickers and other embellishments. Being able to use my Apple Pencil just makes the app that much better.
Perfect for the GOLD personality organizers!!
by Sophie0923 on 2021/09/22 11:46
My true color - GOLD! By far, I am a person that needs: - LISTS!! - Has to feel prepare, or I lose my mind - Enjoys the “reward” for completion of a task - Loves keeping things organized and pretty This app allows you to do it all. Easy to see, easy to use, and perfect for productivity!!
Wonderful!!
by Jenn422 on 2021/09/22 11:27
I was so hesitant to leave my fun to decorate paper planner but I started using Artful Agenda a little over 6 months ago and I never looked back!
Great app!!
by BusyMomOf6RN on 2021/09/22 04:53
I’m fairly new and still learning so much but I love the customizing options I have! I love that it links up to other calendars! And they are always updating or adding to the app!!
Great app!
by Mommy2gav on 2021/09/22 02:44
This is a great app that matches so well with the computer based version. I was able To completely get rid of my large paper planner once I started using this! I love it.
Love it, even with some ideas to make it better!
by PinkWhimsy on 2021/09/22 02:07
I downloaded this app after looking for yet another way to track tasks, goals, etc. I’ve had probably four paper planners in the last six months and have used dozens and dozens of various GTD apps, from Reminders to Omnifocus, Things to TickTick and Todoist (all of them are fabulous and have their uses, but I get too bogged down in them!). I’ve even tried digital planners from Etsy in Goodnotes and Noteshelf. AA is definitely among my favorites! Love: different places for priority tasks versus other tasks; ability to change covers on a whim; different “handwriting” fonts; stickers stickers stickers (seriously I love how easy they are to use compared to in notebook apps); weekly view shows the daily priorities you’ve set; flexibility with titling different sections (I changed Meal Plan to just Dinner) Wishlist: handwriting (which I know is coming soon) and scribble support; mooooore stickers!; ability to move or change the layout of daily and weekly spreads; ability to add custom sections (budgeting, goal setting, etc) (could see this being useful in app purchases!) Overall: excellent implementation, reasonably priced (good yearly planners can easily be $60 or more), and the devs are consistently working to make things better!
Great
by Hwinger828 on 2021/09/22 01:47
I love this app! It works great and it’s so helpful! I like how it syncs up with my email and it automatically adds it to my agenda. I like how I can customize it with different skins. I really do hope we will get an update if skins so that we can change them if we like. I also hope we get a widget soon. I would like to have it on the front of my phone.
Excellent Planner
by aJennyD on 2021/09/22 01:42
I hardly ever leave reviews, but this app has really changed my life. I have spent over $500 on other planner apps, paper planners and anything else I could find, only to find that what I needed was not obtainable with any of these options. After searching (and even asking some college guys to help me make a planner that would work) I happened upon Artful. I was extremely skeptical, but the more I used it, the better it got. I have been able to add all of my calendars and color code them. I have my work calendar, side hustl calendar, personal calendar and family even calendar all in one place. So many amazing features and I have reached out to tech support a few times with questions and get the answers back so fast it’s amazing. The Tech Support is the best I have ever worked with and they are very helpful and concise. I will be using this amazing program for years to come.
Great blend of digital and paper
by krystal704 on 2021/09/22 01:21
This is exactly what I needed. I kept looking for paper and digital planners that I wouldn’t have to use both to achieve what I wanted, but to no avail. Artful agenda is that perfect combination. I know new features keep rolling out, so that’s awesome too.
Best organizer / planner yet
by D.N.S.88 on 2021/09/22 01:20
I always feel like I needed a big bulky planner to keep everything in. I started off well but then would get tired of carrying it everywhere. Here is the best of both worlds. I can change the boxes to make them reflect my life and have so many options for fonts, covers and stickers you never get tired. I have it downloaded on my husbands phone as well so he is always up to date. This one is a keeper for sure.
No other planner like it
by LSauvageau on 2021/09/22 01:14
I can’t say enough good things about this app. There are a few things I would adjust if I ruled the world but not many. Having something that syncs with Google calendars is huge. Now when my family changes something, I have it right in my planner. I use it on my laptop, my Android tablet, and my iPhone. Couldn’t be more convenient.
Digital Planner Perfection
by allyrod08 on 2021/09/22 00:49
Artful Agenda has been a lifesaver! I love the stickers, and creativity that comes with a paper planner, but they have just been unsustainable for the day-to-day reality of life. Artful Agenda has been the perfect transition from paper planner to digital planner, and has been 100% sustainable for me. I love being able to integrate multiple email accounts, because I can see an overview of both my personal day, kids' day, and work day in one spot. This has been so helpful in scheduling appointments for my children (no longer toggling between all the calendars). I love the sticker packs, color coding, and customizable note sections in Artful Agenda. It allows for recurring tasks (no more writing "Trash Day" in my paper planner every week). The Lists section has also been a very nice feature. Highly recommend Artful Agenda! I'm able to efficiently track my personal life, my children's schedules and due dates, significant dates/things for my husband, our home, and my blog work all in one place. Love the app, the Facebook group, and the work that is being done to constantly improve the user experience.
You won’t regret it!
by d. breheim on 2021/09/22 00:40
I love this app! It’s made getting everything from bills to my husband’s work schedule, doctors appointments & everything else you could think of! I especially like that it’s something that i don’t have to worry about keeping away from my kids, I’d easily be able to lock my devices, where as with the traditional planner you’d have to worry about writing utensils & it being ripped! Overall 10/10 recommend for ease of use & convenience!
Amazing
by mamaLulu1108 on 2021/09/22 00:39
I’m an obnoxious organizer 😂 and I love the layout and how easy it is to navigate to my different lists. I tell every one to download. It does my organizational heart good!!!!
Agenda heaven
by karigtz on 2021/09/22 00:14
It’s absolutely perfect, easy to use and extremely fun.
Fantastic Agenda
by TheHappyTeach on 2021/09/22 00:05
I love this online agenda and how it made having multiple calendars so convenient into one! This is a definite plus for anyone who love to be super organized in a beautiful way and decorative way!
Obsessed with this app!!
by girl1105 on 2021/09/22 00:00
So I’m a huge bullet journaler but there are some months/weeks/etc that I just can’t get into it. This definitely helps with that. I like that it’s more aesthetic than the regular apple calendar app because there are stickers, fun fonts, etc. I haven’t been able to make the other digital planners I’ve attempted work out however this one does work with and for me.
Love it!!!
by talarekmama03 on 2021/09/21 23:26
I absolutely love this app for keeping my family’s chaotic schedule organized. I love how I can color coordinate each person as well as make lists for trips, groceries, etc…
I love the APP
by heeeygirlhey on 2021/09/21 23:19
I use to use google calendar until i found artful agenda. It honestly has been amazing. I tell everyone I know about it because it helps not only keep me organized but focused as well. It has so many features that I didn’t have on my google calendar and with a planner like myself this was just the app I needed to make life that much easier.
Super fun app!
by anapurnas on 2021/09/21 23:09
I love how this is so visually appealing and I especially love the lists feature. For some reason it’s much more intuitive for me to use the lists here than in other apps. I am not a big user of the stickers etc but I wish I had the time to use them! I think it’s fun to use and therefore it means I’ll see my to-do’s because a calendar only works if you look at it!
Replacement for paper planner
by Inf. Bladed on 2021/09/21 23:06
This gives me all of the features of a paper planner, minus the feel of actually writing. However it is sooooo much more convenient than having to haul around a cumbersome paper planner.
Helpful ADD tool
by NatL6 on 2021/09/21 23:00
So far it’s helped getting me back on track to getting some control over some disorganization in my life. I was an obsessive planner person and then kind of fell off. I have too much to lug around between work and online classes so this is has started to help with online (windows), iPhone & iPad all working together.
Love it
by Dbeatty1020 on 2021/09/21 22:58
My biggest complaint moving from Android to iPhone was losing my calendar. This app is perfect to color code my 4 kids and easily see who needs to be where when…and the monthly and weekly views are great for quickly figuring it all out!
Best Digital Planner!!!
by Sunnygirl858 on 2021/09/21 22:47
I was once addicted to my Happy Planner. I never would have thought I would ever go to a digital planner…..but I have been an Artful Agenda gal for over a year now. I LOVE it!!!! Favorite features…..stickers, repeating events and colorful themes!!!
Great app across platforms
by Las bound on 2021/09/21 22:40
I was looking for a planner app to use across multiple platforms (ios, android, windows) and this one seems to fit the bill. Developers are very open to suggestions for improvement and often release updates. Great option to replace the paper planner.
Love it all
by KFlaget on 2021/09/21 22:30
Love the app to help coordinate everything into one place and having the ability to see everything thing in the calendar as opposed to having to open each date to see events
Life Changing!
by ArtandYoga on 2021/09/21 22:30
I have tried every planner out there- and this is by far the best! To have everything in the same place is so perfect. Lists, calendar, notes, reminders… stickers… Facebook group… it’s just the best. Try her free trial and see how awesome it is!
Love it!
by Jmtwice on 2021/09/21 22:24
I love an old-fashioned paper planner and really struggled to make the jump to a digital planner but I am so glad I did. I love Artful Agenda and all the features it offers. I recommend using the trial version to get use to the features. I was able to sync it with several calendars and I can color coordinate my clients. Love it!
Just what I needed
by twantuck on 2021/09/21 22:02
Have been looking for a planner for a while. Came across this one and actually went past the trial time. I find myself not always canceling before cause I wasn’t able to do as much. Only problem I have is that it takes a little to load. I love that I can add stickers an change colors an frames.
Wonderful Tactile Planner with the Convenience of Digital!
by Ibram Gaunt on 2021/09/21 21:56
I love bullet journals. I think they’re beautiful and expressive, and such a visually appealing way to stay organized and on top of things. But for me, they take waaaaay to much creative time and energy for me to actually benefit from it at the current time in my life. But other calendar apps just aren’t engaging enough for me to use consistently. Enter Artful Agenda. It brings a visual, tactile element to my ever-present digital devices, which also works to keep it handy at all times. While I prefer using it on the iPad, the ability to see it on my phone while out and about means I’m way more likely to update and use it when I need it. I’m very excited to see more customization and flexibility come to the app (I know scribbling with the Pencil is in beta now!), so in time, I envision the ability to do full on bullet journal level art styles when time allows, with the same low creative and raw physical material investment that frees up my sketching in Procreate.
Easy to use & convenient
by steelersgirl68 on 2021/09/21 21:53
I have tried several other digital planners and have abandoned them because they were either too complicated, required using multiple apps to run them, or a syncing issues with multiple accounts. The Artful Agenda is extremely easy to set up and use. It works conveniently with all my devices and all my accounts sync without any issues. Additionally, the cost is affordable! I love the bonus stickers and layouts that give it the paper planner features I love. I highly recommend this this app planner. The only suggestion I have is to add a view of the full year.
Love the app
by ChrisRed13 on 2021/09/21 21:50
I replaced a paper Erin Condren planner with this app on my iPad. It does everything the paper one did and more, plus I don’t have to lug a book and pens around. I like that it syncs with my phone so I can jot an appointment down at doctor’s office and it carries over. Having the option to pick and change covers, handwriting styles, colors, and to use stickers satisfies my need to be creative and doodle like I did with the paper planner. My only suggestion is regarding the stickers. They look great when I put them into the pages on my iPad. But when I look at the app on my iPhone, the stickers are disproportionately large and not centered how I had them. Also I would like more covers and handwriting styles someday.
Great Calendar App
by Bridgett413 on 2021/09/21 21:35
I’ve been using Artful Agenda for almost a year now. It works great to keep our schedules and even syncs with my son’s baseball schedule. I love being able to change up colors as my mood changes. Highly recommend!
Planner
by EmilyDP15 on 2021/09/21 21:34
Love this planner. I have always been one to have a planner but never found one I like app wise. I love this planner and will not go back to the paper planner which is huge for me. It’s so easy, stylish and a great community if you have any questions. My husband loves it too because he can log on and see what’s going on for the month
Pretty great!
by CynthiaLeigh on 2021/09/21 21:33
I can’t wait until I can use my Apple Pencil & write as well as type. No more diaries, journals, and agendas to buy. It’s all about the digital world of Artful Agenda!
Love It!
by Jlthatcher on 2021/09/21 21:33
Love this app….still learning but it does everything I want!
Finally!
by TieryBella on 2021/09/21 21:29
Finally I have an agenda app that actually does what it’s supposed to do. Very easy to use, and worth the monthly fee. I am sold for life!
The Best!
by RealtorKarenA on 2021/09/21 21:22
I love this app! I sync it between my iPhone, my iPad and my Mac. It’s easy to use! No more paper calendars! I’d love less “cute” stickers. Definitely need an airplane for travel, a real estate sticker pack (listing, showings, closings, inspections, escrow due, trainings, conference, etc). Love to see more business sticker packs and more motivational sayings! Maybe more covers too? I love this system though and I was a die hard paper planner person! I have started using the lists more too. My office is getting totally paperless! I spend less money with this system too.
So convenient
by SuzThomas on 2021/09/21 21:21
I really like the ability to add something to my calendar using my phone when an idea pops in my head. Then sit at my desktop and there it is. I have always been a paper planner person. I tried digital calendars but they just seemed so bland. The artful agenda gives me the fun look of a paper planner with the ease of use.
Highly recommend
by nyjenniev789 on 2021/09/21 21:15
This calendar is awesome. It’s very easy to get around and the layout is perfect for me. For example I have the option to see the month, week and day View (as most calendars apps) but when I switch to the Dayview I have the option of priority tasks and sub tasks. (I LOVE THIS!!!) In addition there’s a task page in which I created a to do list, a shopping list, a journal and long and short term goals. The stickers are also super cute and they are icing on the cake
Fantastic planner!
by C_Holecek on 2021/09/21 21:01
I was a die hard physical planner person, until I found Artful Agenda! The ease of use and ability to use it as a notebook as well, perfection!
Great app!
by Granipanties on 2021/09/21 20:59
Was lacking ability to use pencil but that has been added. Just tested out handwriting option coming soon and that’s the icing on the cake.
Bye Bye Paper Planner
by Sch214 on 2021/09/21 20:51
Being able to update my calendar on the app and desktop is so convenient. I was a die hard paper planner, and haven’t touched it since downloading the app.
Agenda
by francojacobos on 2021/09/21 20:49
This is exactly what I was looking for! The layout is great and the fonts are fun - beautiful app
Love
by vjense on 2021/09/21 20:47
I love using my the app in my phone as my personal planner. I don’t have to worry about carrying my planner book all around with me anymore.
Exactly what I needed
by klubax on 2021/09/21 20:47
Exactly what I was looking for. Love how easy it is to navigate and be able to make a colorful calendar and exited for the new updates that are coming! Like being able to write freestyle
So useful!
by NikkiMaldo on 2021/09/21 20:40
I absolutely love this agenda! It’s easy to use and perfect when I’m on the go. I access it from my phone, laptop, and desktop. Way easier than lugging a thick agenda around. I love that we can customize it and make it cute like the tangible ones. And the price is comparable.
Love this app!
by !lynne8 on 2021/09/21 20:40
Great online app - has all the functionality of a physical paper planner but easier to carry with me!
I use it every day
by Knotted treasure on 2021/09/21 20:38
I love artful agenda. I used to have a paper bullet journal, but as life gets more complicated, copying the to-dos from week to week was very time consuming. And now that it is digital I always have it with me wherever I go. I love that I can still customize and use colors and stickers to make it feel more fun and personal.
Worth every penny!!
by t_widdifi on 2021/09/21 20:37
For what I use to pay for a paper planner this is cheap!!! I love that it combines with all my calendars and across all my devices!!
Love it!
by ItsMeMsV on 2021/09/21 20:37
I wouldn’t be able to get through nursing school without this app! I schedule all my reading, lectures, exams, etc. here and check them off as I finish them. It keeps me on track!
Love it!
by Yatesj on 2021/09/21 20:36
I am a very visual person and I live the functionality of this app and accompanying site. It gives me a single place to compile all of my dates with online access and great visuals.
Love, Love, Love
by coffeeunicornqueen on 2021/09/21 20:36
I couldn’t be happier with this app. I can use it on my phone, tablet, computer, whatever I have handy. I am able To keep my busy active family on track!
Easy to Use!!
by BkBsjsje zoansj on 2021/09/21 20:34
I love the ease of this app! It syncs with my iPhone so I don’t have to enter or change tho Hs twice. I’m telling my friends about it!!
My Right Arm
by Toxicdiva on 2021/09/21 20:32
I absolutely love this app. There are so many features combined in one planning solution. It has stickers, it syncs with my google calendar, I can change the covers, and it has color-coding. I can’t wait for some of the upcoming features like being able to use my Apple Pencil.
OBSESSED
by Penguin butt!! on 2021/09/21 20:30
I have searched for an agenda/planner that would work for me for what seems like forever. I couldn’t be happier. I’m in love!!!
Makes my life easier!
by VickieCain on 2021/09/21 20:27
I love this agenda! I was a paper-carrying planner person for more than 25 years and this has easily replaced it!
Love The Layout
by tschomp68 on 2020/04/25 13:38
I love this app. I honestly feel a lot more productive since using it. The layout is perfect to see my calendar and tasks and also the meal plan for the week/day. I love the planner feel of it because I have always been a paper planner person but I need my planner to be electronic so I always have it in my hand. However I only gave it four stars because of things that I think could improve for the tasks. This is honestly the first app review I have ever written and I’m writing it because I love this app and I’m hoping the creators can tweak these couple things. 1. I would love to be able to categorize my tasks. Even if I can just change the font color that would be huge! As long as I can visually see the different colors for my tasks then I can mentally know what category they fall under. 2. I know others have mentioned this but being able to repeat tasks would be amazing and save a good bit of time re-typing them in. I do love that I don’t have to schedule a time for them because that bothers me so much about other to do list apps. But if we could repeat things it would help a lot.
Amazing Planner
by _Jessica_Renae_ on 2021/02/01 14:40
I love this app & website. I work remotely and in office and was struggling to keep up with all my tasks in a paper planner. I’ve tried a few digital ones, but I missed the fun of a physical one. This one was the perfect solution. Here’s what I love about it. 1. I love the individualization aspect (cover, “handwriting”, etc.). The lists give you so many options to make it what you want and there’s even a section in you day to day planner where you can change it to what you want. 2. It helps to be able to type something into my phone, then view it on my computer later or vice versa. I use it during meetings due to this function. 3. I can keep up with projects or make lists for personal vs work tasks then assign them to a day. This has been a life saver for keeping up with my bills. 4. You can create events in it (& invite people) and it’ll sync to your other calendars. *My only wish is that I use to have a Samsung phone before an Apple and it had an awesome widget for this app. I’m a visual person so I liked being able to see it, and the beautiful cover, on my home screen. I was disappointed Apple doesn’t have it yet, though I’ve read they are working on it. Fingers crossed it comes soon. Highly recommend Artful Agenda, I brag on it so much that coworkers are now subscribing too.
Love it, even with some ideas to make it better!
by PinkWhimsy on 2021/09/22 02:07
I downloaded this app after looking for yet another way to track tasks, goals, etc. I’ve had probably four paper planners in the last six months and have used dozens and dozens of various GTD apps, from Reminders to Omnifocus, Things to TickTick and Todoist (all of them are fabulous and have their uses, but I get too bogged down in them!). I’ve even tried digital planners from Etsy in Goodnotes and Noteshelf. AA is definitely among my favorites! Love: different places for priority tasks versus other tasks; ability to change covers on a whim; different “handwriting” fonts; stickers stickers stickers (seriously I love how easy they are to use compared to in notebook apps); weekly view shows the daily priorities you’ve set; flexibility with titling different sections (I changed Meal Plan to just Dinner) Wishlist: handwriting (which I know is coming soon) and scribble support; mooooore stickers!; ability to move or change the layout of daily and weekly spreads; ability to add custom sections (budgeting, goal setting, etc) (could see this being useful in app purchases!) Overall: excellent implementation, reasonably priced (good yearly planners can easily be $60 or more), and the devs are consistently working to make things better!
Great Planner
by u3gfybvuvksygkevf on 2021/03/25 20:50
I’ve always been a paper planner person. When my favorite was discontinued, I’ve been on a very expensive journey since, trying to find the best fit. I found the busier I have become with work and personal life, carrying a paper planner was not working as well. After trying a few digital planners I came across Artful Agenda. I used it for 2 days and immediately decided this was the one. I went ahead and paid the annual fee. I carry two phones with me and when my work phone is put away for family time, I love that I can still look on my personal phone and see my work schedule when trying to plan something. I keep my AG open on my laptop all day at work because it is my go to for all things appointment, tasks, and list related. I really love this calendar. A few things I wish it had but lacked, is that when in landscape mode on your phone, that the calendar would landscape as well. It currently does not. Also wish you could zoom in on the page. These are not a deal breaker for me though, since it checks off what I need it to do.
More creative then a standard calendar
by Mustng_grl on 2021/07/10 03:00
I love that it syncs with Google Calendar!!!! Nothing stinks more then having to manually redo a calendar because you can’t import data! Would love more stickers. I’m a scrapbooker and love love love all sorts of stickers. For example a hair cut sticker, a braces sticker to differentiate between a regular dentist and orthodontist appointment. I am a mom of 5 so my kids do all sorts of activities (Boy scouts, flag football, soccer, gymnastics, etc). We love the zoo. Next year we are hoping to go to DisneyWorld so a Disney sticker would be cool… I would also love a Journaling tab to be added. A place I can put my thoughts that are not lists/to-do’s. More text colors would be great as a family of 7, I assign each person a different color, school calendars 2 colors (one for the elementary and another for preschool), a color for birthday/holidays. And another one for the whole family events. I like to use colors that stand out differently from each other. I have seen other apps have a place to keep track of digital subscriptions and budgets. Any possibility you will be adding this as well? I have a tablet on my list wish because working on my iPhone 12 Pro makes everything so little. I like being able to see all my events for the day when I am in monthly view…
My planner peace
by Julmal28 on 2020/07/29 14:05
I've done paper planners. Lots of them. I like them but always felt there was a clumsiness when I need it with me. I tried digital planners and transferring calendar items was a waste of time. I found Artful Agenda. This is my planner peace. Convenience of my planner with me at all times. Desktop, iPad and phone. Like a digital planner but syncing all of my calendars (work and personal) is so time saving, productive and plain helpful. I love the tasks section and notes which i use for my budget tracking. This is the longest I've stuck with consistently tracking my budget and financial goals. and LISTS!!! Finally I have a convenient place for my notes, turning them into action items and assigning to appropriate day via tasks. This is an all in one app for what I use to use separately (calendar, tasks, notes). I haven't even touched on the customer support. I made a near fatal error with a list and they were able to fix for me. AMAZING. They listen to feedback and constantly improve the app. I am a lifer. Clearly I'm a fan.
Wonderful Tactile Planner with the Convenience of Digital!
by Ibram Gaunt on 2021/09/21 21:56
I love bullet journals. I think they’re beautiful and expressive, and such a visually appealing way to stay organized and on top of things. But for me, they take waaaaay to much creative time and energy for me to actually benefit from it at the current time in my life. But other calendar apps just aren’t engaging enough for me to use consistently. Enter Artful Agenda. It brings a visual, tactile element to my ever-present digital devices, which also works to keep it handy at all times. While I prefer using it on the iPad, the ability to see it on my phone while out and about means I’m way more likely to update and use it when I need it. I’m very excited to see more customization and flexibility come to the app (I know scribbling with the Pencil is in beta now!), so in time, I envision the ability to do full on bullet journal level art styles when time allows, with the same low creative and raw physical material investment that frees up my sketching in Procreate.
On its way to greatness!
by Camperoo on 2020/07/17 03:21
This is the seed of a great app but several things are preventing me from recommending it at this point. #1–the stickers are a unorganized, ugly and do not stay precisely where placed—not on the same device and not from one device to another, they seem to snap to some predetermined location just off of where I actually placed them. I want aesthetically pleasing stickers with precise placement—the whole upside of this app over other calendars is supposed to be the pretty factor yes? #2-so much wasted screen space! On both the iPad and desktop. The leafy background is pretty but wastes screen real estate to the point where I can’t read my calendar, even on my 16” MacBook. #3-the price is outrageous, it doesn’t offer $4/month in value over just using Google or Apple calendars. ...For now I will continue to use my GoodNotes digital planner and wait for this app to mature and get significantly cheaper. It has a fantastic idea but it just wasn’t functional enough to pay a premium monthly price for—yet! Keep the updates coming and I’ll be back to check it out next year :)
Like it but something is missing
by Bookworm4days on 2020/12/14 18:56
I like this app. It had everything I wanted in a calendar app. One of the main things was the fact that you can block out time in your calendar and sync with your other calendars. I also love that we can change the hex codes to coordinate with the colors we want. I just wished I could save all the colors I chose so I don’t have to write down the color codes somewhere else. Also, the meal section seems to have a glitch. Only a third of the box works. The rest of it you can’t even type on. The other task section doesn’t move to the next line when whatever you type is longer than the width of the box. That really annoyed me. I also wished there was an option to upload your own stickers to the app because I’m not a big fan of the stickers that they offer. All in all, it worked well but not for the yearly price. I think I will continue to search for the perfect planner app and stick to my digital planner on my GoodNotes app until I find something worth paying for.
Best Calendar App!
by CrysAria on 2020/12/01 02:24
I love Artful Agenda! I used to have a paper planner and undone tasks would get lost, I had to rewrite things from the family digital calendar and vice versa, I forgot deadlines... a|a has changed all that! I am more productive, I don’t forget the little things, and I get to play with digital stickers to make my planner cute! Plus I’m saving a ton of money not buying paper planners, stickers, etc. One of the best things for me personally is that a calendar I’m subscribed to for my church’s board (I’m on the Board of Trustees) NEVER showed up on Google no matter how many times I reset it; but it shows up on a|a! That has been incredibly helpful since I’m also on committees and there have been days I forgot we had a meeting until the president sent the 1 hr reminder. That is a thing of the past with a|a. Their customer service is fabulous, the FB group is fun and helpful, and you can’t go wrong with a free trial. Just get it. You’ll love it!
Great alternative to paper planner
by quirkyish on 2019/06/18 03:09
I love paper planners in theory—and often buy 2 every year—but practically, the ones that work best for my needs are too bulky and heavy to carry around all the time. Enter Artful Agenda. I’ve been using it for a few months, and I am hooked! I love that the planner is with me anytime I have my phone (or iPad or laptop). I love that the app syncs with calendars across platforms (Outlook, google, Mac). And I especially love that the planner is well-designed and includes creative elements like different cover designs, font choices, and digital stickers. I know a lot of people don’t like the idea of paying a subscription fee, but for me, the Artful Agenda subscription price is less than I’ve been paying for a paper planner each year. (And, again, I often bought 2 per year. 🤷🏻‍♀️) Paying less money for a planner that I will actually use and not end up leaving at home is win-win for me!
Paper Planner Convert
by Stormy/Swift on 2021/08/29 22:56
I have always used paper planners. I love to pick one that is as beautiful as it is functional, which is why I shied away from using the calendar app that came with my phone. However, with kids going in many directions, I found that I need to be able to communicate our ever changing schedule with my husband and kiddos more easily, so I was thrilled to find Artful Agenda. It is very easy to use so I got up and running in no time. I sync it to our family sharing calendar so they can see what’s going on. I can easily switch between my iPad and phone and I love that you can change the font and colors and also add stickers and lists to each day. The developers are very involved in asking for suggestions and implementing upgrades, as well as helping with technical issues. And there’s a Facebook group full of tips and help. Highly recommend!
Good but could use improvement!
by nako0507 on 2021/03/29 22:14
Although I genuinely enjoy this app, I feel like there are several improvements that need to be made in order for it to be great. My main criticism is pretty small — I would like to be able to customize the quotes that are autogenerated. Some of the quotes that come up are by people who I know to be historical figures that I have strong political disagreements with. This ruins the experience for me, and I would love to be able to simply edit and put my own quote there. I also think the alarms should be more customizable. Currently, I am only able to set alarms for 9 AM, which is not very helpful in terms of reminding me for an appointment. I would also appreciate the ability to synchronize with people using other software, such as google calendars. I prefer this to google calendars, but I would like to be able to sync with other people who use it and invite them to edit my events. Other than that, I appreciate this app’s usability and how it lets me customize my day.
Great for teaching/momming/organizing my ADD
by jessicaheckles on 2020/01/23 21:26
I’m an elementary school teacher, a mom and live with ADD. My worlds frequently become too much to juggle independently and I’d get planner overload and organizing fatigue. Stuff would slip, I’d miss appts and feel like garbage. Using artful agenda for like a week and I already feel more in control of all the things to remember. I like the calendar sync being easy, I made family to share with husband and work and personal calendars. I can organize all the teacher stuff separately and it’s visually appealing, so I want to use it. Having add I have tried every paper/online calendar and have usually Multiple ones that don’t cover it all. This feels good, clean and I can be on top of things. The stickers are adorable, the covers are chic and the Facebook group actually gives suggestions about what is coming next or what features we’d like in the future.
Nice digital planner
by StuartJH01056 on 2021/06/18 22:57
I’ve never written an app review before, but I had to write one for this app. I love that it integrates with my Google calendar, let’s me keep track of tasks, and helps me track meals and water intake. I’ve been using this for about three weeks and I love it so far. I really really love paper planners but can never keep up with them and always end up using my Google calendar. This gives me the experience of a paper planner and ability to write lists with the Google calendar integration. Well worth the price (which is less than what I was paying yearly for fancy paper planners). I would like more covers and more sticker options. I would also like it if somehow the colors of the tasks on Google calendar could also transfer to the artful agenda; but I have no idea how this would work and I’m doing ok color coding tasks in both without it.
Franklin planner meets digital era
by Old crickety momma on 2021/08/30 00:49
I’m old school. I began my adult life using a Franklin planner. After becoming a mom and then the invention of iPhones with Reminders and iCal syncing across all platforms I did away with my paper planner, but I always missed the focused approach to tasks, prioritizing them and carrying them over when they didn’t get completed. Setting monthly goals to keep me on track with my values, and the blank page on the right where I could jot down notes, directions, thoughts, feelings, etc. Then I found Artful Agenda and the hallelujah chorus sang! It’s like a marriage between my old planner life and my new digital life. I can have multiple calendars for home and work, and I can identify important tasks for each day. I’ll be a life long user. They are continuously making improvements and seeking to make it the best planner ever. Try it, you’ll like it 😉
Great digital alternative with paper planner options
by notjustm0m on 2020/12/01 19:12
I started using a|a a few months ago and they have already come out with several updates. I love that it seamlessly syncs with my native Apple calendar app so I can still share calendars with my husband and daughter but they don’t need a new app-Cozi didn’t work for us because he already uses 2 calendar apps (one for work Outlook and a personal one on Apple) and didn’t want another place to look. This way I get to have a fun calendar that caters to my artistic side and still syncs with our shared calendars. I use several Google calendars as well and they all sync to my Artful Agenda calendar. I’ve gotten a lot of great ideas from the private Facebook group as well. Glad I signed up for the 2 week trial and have already purchased another annual subscription. Happy planning!
Needs work...
by Delta.esme on 2021/04/28 20:02
Update: I’m really enjoying this agenda now. Started paying now for some months after all the updates. I especially like the notifications and stickers. Note to developer: I need the ability to change the notification alarm and length of the sound. For the most part, I see it but most of the time I can’t hear it. I tried looking for a way to change that but I can’t. Thank you for keeping up with the all aspects of this app. I enjoy using it more now. I love paper agendas and have paid a lot to have all the features this electronic agenda has but this is much better than paper. I really enjoyed the app but as some reviews have stated it’s not worth the price per month. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the visual of it. So much nicer than all the other apps but that’s it. Without push notifications or reminders it’s useless cause I forget to check the time. I need a way to remind me it’s time for the next appointment. I can’t keep looking at my watch or clock for that. Also, it has too many bugs. I’m glad it’s getting repaired as soon as reported but again for the price they should not be so many. I will look again in a few months to see the changes because I do like it, but until I see what I need, I have cancelled my subscription.
Never going back to a paper planner!
by NisShe on 2021/06/06 11:04
I have been addicted to paper planners for my whole life. I was super stubborn about changing that. I thought if I migrated to a digital space, I’d lose the thrill of cracking open a new planner or that I’d become ever more reliant on my phone, among other concerns. But I am soooooo pleased with this app. I’m three weeks in and I am continuing to find new features I love. First time I’ve ever paid for an app too. And I mean, ever. Worth every cent. I feel so organized and I also love that I can still have the fun of customizing my planner with different colors/backgrounds. I don’t have to be glued to my phone either as there is a connected desktop app (desktop app bonus: you get a daily quote all of which have been lovely). Honestly, this has been so impressive and I am never looking back!
Definitely worth it- but where’s the widget?
by nhbfgobfbguf on 2021/06/13 11:48
I was on the fence about spending this much money on a planner, but I end up spending more on physical planners after I ruin them or need to change dates I’ve already written in. I’m a bit of a perfectionist so I’m picky to the point where if my handwriting is off even a little, I need to redo it. This is so nice because you can change everything, including dates or even the stickers you drag and drop. I love everything about this planner. The one thing I would love to see would be an option for the widget the way the system calendar has one. I’d love to see the activities for the day I have planned in and I only have my AA calendar updated to reflect this. I’d love to be able to see a quick short version of the day on the Home Screen.
Loved the App but...
by KnittinKittin72 on 2020/02/02 18:55
I wish there was a few different features that would make it more customizable. For me, I would have loved a light and dark mode. I wish colors would synch w my a Google calendar so that each person was the same color on both calendars. I also wish there were more stickers. I realize those are all “me” issues and did not play into my resetting of the app What did make me rate it a 4 and not a 5 is it being a little fiddly on my mobile devices. I have to move the app around the screen to get to something like the water minder. I’d rather the different features be tabbed or all in one screen. I hate having to scroll or move the screen to find things. Other then that, it is an amazing app!!!!
Beautiful and Functional!
by Pip0428 on 2019/06/29 10:53
I don’t normally write reviews but this morning I was so impressed when looking through this app. Not only is it beautifully designed, but it’s very functional. I love that you can connect to calendars that you’ve already created on other platforms, making transitioning to this planner simple. I love that you can change the color of the appointments, and there are a lot of color choices! And several different background options! I also love that there is a monthly goals section, as well as a task list at the bottom of each day. I love that you are able to tick off those tasks also. I also really love that there is a meal section where you can, for my purpose, either track the meals that you have been eating throughout the day, or you can plan meals in the section. And right below that, a water tracker! I would love to see, sometime, that the water tracker could be customized by each individual (cup size in oz, number of cups, etc). I also appreciate the different views on the calendar, monthly, weekly, daily. So far I have really loved everything that I’ve discovered and I look forward to the upcoming updates that are mentioned! This is truly the app I’ve been looking for!
Good, still needs a lot of work!
by Jay1409 on 2019/11/15 23:36
I will start off by saying that I love this app. Even though it’s all digital, it gives the beauty of a customized paper planner: beautiful backgrounds, lists, meal and water tracking, amongst many other wonderful features. It could still use a lot of work as there still is a lot of errors that occur within the app but it’s nothing that keeps me from using it. If I ever have any issues that occur, all I do is go into the Support tab and use the contact form to inform the team of my issues and they either solve it with a bug update or a resolution. It could use a few more custom options, such as how many reminders are allowed per event (such as 2 days before an event and the hour before), but it’s an A+ app. I highly recommend it!
I’m in love
by lyricallynny on 2019/10/03 03:30
I had seen digital planners before but getting them to interact with my main calendar (Apple) never seemed to work quite right which meant my husband wouldn’t get the updates. Deal-breaker. I am also one who adores pretty planners and often have one that gets sporadically filled out. Anyway, about this product. I’m in awe. It’s beautiful, it’s functional, it syncs between my laptop and phone, it’s giving me all the control to tweak it that I like and it functions just like a paper one but without having to recopy what was on the month to the week to the day. I love that it has lists and I can customize colors. I can choose to have the school sports calendar fed into it when my child is playing and hide it when the season is over. It’s pretty darn brilliant.
Almost... perfect
by hellonicknamehere on 2019/12/14 18:51
There are a few things that are missing that I hope the developers will include soon. First, alerts and reminders as an option, similar to the iPhone calendar, there is an option for alerts/reminders for appointments. Also, in the video tutorial for the desktop feature mentioned we can add multiple email addresses, the app it doesn’t have that option. Lastly, in the app there are sections of priority list, other tasks (which is similar to the priority list format), and custom list. I wish there was a way the user can customize the “custom list” section to a note section, or similar to the pictures of this app, it showed a “gratitude journal” section which the app currently doesn’t have. I would completely transition to using just this planner, however I found myself using both the iPhone calendar and this planner.
In love with this planner app!

I was always a paper pencil planner type of gal but have completely switched over with Artful Agenda! I love the ability to customize and personalize its aesthetics with the stickers and covers. I like that it syncs to Google calendar. I also love the ability to automate the tasks and to make recurring tasks. It’s so neat too that the tasks just move automatically if it doesn’t get done. I don’t miss that part which I would need to do with paper planners (rewriting, erasing, or moving things to the next day). The ability to toggle between day, week, and month, and List tabs are wonderful too! Katy Allen and the developers are amazing and are constantly adding features and they listen to our feedback. Definitely worth the subscription!
Digital planner that puts an end to calendar surfing!
by Britt.P. on 2021/01/16 01:57
I am a Director for a not for profit organization and my plate is full with meetings and tasks. Not to mention I have a family and two children at home. In order to navigate all of my life, work, home and the school or extracurricular events, we operated on many calendars. And I hate manual planners because of the constant maintenance or husband’s refusal to look in them. In order for me to schedule one thing, I used to review 4-5 calendars just to ensure I could make an appointment. With Artful Agenda, I found the first digital planner that allows me to integrate not only all of my calendars in one place but my Todoist tasks that I live by. I can add an event to the agenda and it will populate to the calendar I set it to and vice versa. Scheduling a meeting or appointment takes seconds vs. the awkward, “give me a minute to check all my calendars” speech. I would recommend anyone in need of a productivity or multi-tasking upgrade. Or just get it to keep you sane! I’ve been using this app, which is also friendly on different interfaces, I.e. desktop and tablet, since September of 2020 and have recommended to all of my team members. Happy Planning!
So far, so good.
by WildFlower01 on 2021/09/25 14:11
I’m still in the trial phase, but so far I’m liking it! I’m very new to the digital planner world. This is the second digital planner I’ve tried. I almost quit after trying the first digital planner, so I’m glad I found this one. It is so easy to figure out, especially with the tutorials. It’s like using my old paper planner! I especially love how it can sync between my iPad and iPhone, so I always have it with me! I also love how easy it is to sync my Google and iCloud calendars and I didn’t have to transfer everything over manually. It would be nice to have a bill tracker tab and more sticker options or the option to import stickers from other sources. But, those aren’t deal breakers, I would definitely recommend this app.
Love the functionality
by Dvjvbvc on 2021/08/23 21:37
I was an Artful Agenda user about two years ago, but it didn’t have all the functionality of my paper planner at the time so I never used it much. However, I’m LOVING 💜 the new updates and the ability to use my Apple Pencil with Scribble function. I’ve already started more efficiently planning things like my weekly cleaning tasks, etc. and the fact it syncs with my google and iOS calendar makes it a breeze to use with my existing calendars that my whole family uses. I would like for a future update to include a separate notes tab (in addition to the already awesome tasks tab) with ability to file notes in folders or “notebooks” to make it even more functional for use throughout the day.
Satisfies the boss girl in me
by Snow Wight on 2020/12/01 11:48
I was a paper planner user for years. And only recently gave up my paper planner for digital planning. I was using GoodNotes but seem like I was spending a lot of time setting up my day today task. And aren’t we using a planner to save us time?I was so happy to find this app. It lets me look at my whole day appointments alongside of my tasks and prioritize them. I’m also a big list maker so the list function really is satisfying for my 0CD. The stickers are a lot of fun so that speaks to the 12 year old girl and me. LOL they are a little cumbersome as they do not convey position from one platform to another. But I feel that that will be addressed very shortly by the developer. I feel like I’m on the ground floor of something that’s good and will soon be great.
Perfect Planner for the OCD
by KayBush on 2020/05/11 15:53
I’ve been dreaming of a calendar that I can sync with my already created apple calendar that has the ability for an advanced weekly and daily view. LOVE THIS AGENDA. I have it on my phone, iPad and computer and can access it anywhere and as a business manager it has been a LIFE SAVER. I am so pleased with this app. I love physical planners because of how customizable they are but hated the constant erasing / white out, plus having to carry it. The other digital planners were either too much and had way to many options that just made them seem too busy or I couldn’t personalize them enough. But the syncing with my already made calendars that this app does just takes the dang cake and puts it way above all the rest.
Exceeded expectations!
by lunch_lady_love on 2021/07/12 23:30
I’ve been using this planner regularly for 7 months now. I had tried Google, Apple, Outlook and I hated looking at my calendar and now I know why: it held all the things I DO, but not an ounce of who I AM. Artful Agenda helps me express myself and stay inspired as I plan. I was expecting and willing to take on some glitches or inconveniences considering the start up vibes but that’s not been the case! It’s been extremely reliable both on desktop and mobile and seamlessly syncs my google calendar where I receive standard invites. It’s also filled with features I actually use regularly. I’m so grateful to have found this! It’s made a world of difference in my energy around to-do’s! Thank you to the creators and maintainers!!
Planner Nerd Finds a Home
by dje303 on 2021/09/22 21:48
Paper is so hard for me to give up. I love writing in a journal or planner but then I get lost or don’t have space to haul all my planning notebooks around. So as a business women digital is how I need to live my life. A planner just has to sync to my calendars and then allow me to plan task, quick to dosa and quick notes and tracking around that synced calendar. I am fully enjoying and tweaking how I use Artful Agenda. There’s the best of both worlds here! No more digital downloads that I have to write everything in daily - but I have the freedom with my iPad to take notes or write a quick to do list just like those left behind planning not booked or digital planners. THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER I’ve been waiting on for years!!
Nice! But please do some UX testing
by kimurphy on 2020/02/11 17:56
First off, I’ve been hoping that an app that truly merges paper and digital would come along! I’m excited to see where this goes. But I think this needs user testing and some work. I see a lot of improvements that can be made that would make this app more user friendly. Example- day view needs an indicator of what time it is/where you’re at in the day. Sticker use on both the app and desktop are clunky and require user to figure out how to use it. Other thoughts- I definitely would need push notifications, like they plan on implementing in future releases. I would love to see the water portion customizable. This is not useful for everyone, yet it’s prominent and is noise/wasted space for those whose don’t use it. Maybe make it a customizable tracker, or add the option to hide that feature.
Made for me!
by KayGrov on 2020/07/26 13:48
So far this agenda has been life changing!! I was struggling to manage my time as a mom, wife and newly promoted Team Leader with Usborne Books and more! It is simply amazing! Being able to have separate colors and list for my recruits, personal business, home life, all in one handy and beautifully made agenda!! I love the option of the stickers as well! I have purchased a large agenda with tons of stickers and colorful pens every year for so long, all for it to go to waste half way through the year. But with Artful Agenda I believe this will be my most organized and accomplished year. Thank you again!!!!! P.S. today it asked me when I have time set aside for myself! 😱 LOOOVE this! I ALWAYS forget to do that. You’re an angel! Thank you!!
Digital Planner Perfection
by allyrod08 on 2021/09/22 00:49
Artful Agenda has been a lifesaver! I love the stickers, and creativity that comes with a paper planner, but they have just been unsustainable for the day-to-day reality of life. Artful Agenda has been the perfect transition from paper planner to digital planner, and has been 100% sustainable for me. I love being able to integrate multiple email accounts, because I can see an overview of both my personal day, kids' day, and work day in one spot. This has been so helpful in scheduling appointments for my children (no longer toggling between all the calendars). I love the sticker packs, color coding, and customizable note sections in Artful Agenda. It allows for recurring tasks (no more writing "Trash Day" in my paper planner every week). The Lists section has also been a very nice feature. Highly recommend Artful Agenda! I'm able to efficiently track my personal life, my children's schedules and due dates, significant dates/things for my husband, our home, and my blog work all in one place. Love the app, the Facebook group, and the work that is being done to constantly improve the user experience.
Love the app
by ChrisRed13 on 2021/09/21 21:50
I replaced a paper Erin Condren planner with this app on my iPad. It does everything the paper one did and more, plus I don’t have to lug a book and pens around. I like that it syncs with my phone so I can jot an appointment down at doctor’s office and it carries over. Having the option to pick and change covers, handwriting styles, colors, and to use stickers satisfies my need to be creative and doodle like I did with the paper planner. My only suggestion is regarding the stickers. They look great when I put them into the pages on my iPad. But when I look at the app on my iPhone, the stickers are disproportionately large and not centered how I had them. Also I would like more covers and handwriting styles someday.
Best Decision!
by Angie_413 on 2021/08/23 23:05
I have used a paper planner for about 25 years. Every year I spend a good amount of money on the perfect planner! This year I decided to TRY the digital planner from Artful! I did the 2 week trial and OMGGGGGG! I was so impressed; the automatic calendar transfers, the covers, THE STICKERS, how easy it is to use, the layout. It was just incredible. And no more carrying around a book that doesn’t fit in my purse! I can’t lie! It was very hard to switch from paper to digital but it took me those 2 weeks to do it and it was well worth it. My favorite is seeing it on my laptop. I promise this will be the best change you could make to organize and plan your daily/monthly/yearly life events with. Angie! 🤍 a very happy customer 🤍
Wonderful Digital calendar
by MEG224* on 2021/08/24 11:17
Use to be a paper calendar gal. 11 months into trying A/A and I love it! Many features that I am still learning how to use but I love the fact you can access over all devices. Just started using Apple Pencil to write on the calendar which is so cool. My favorite feature is you can list tasks in the task area in the day view and can easily complete said task and check off or schedule the task for a later date. Lots of other things one can do that I am still learning but I definitely feel more organized. The support group is awesome as well. Plus the customization with different covers and colors! Highly recommend Artful Agenda
Paper to Digital User
by Happycamping on 2021/08/24 15:12
I was a paper planner user for years. I tried multiple times to just go to apple calendar and it just didn’t give me the same satisfaction. I have been a AA user for about a year now and I love it. I do not use it to its fullest that is for sure. I love how the creator always listens to feedback and implements as much as she can as quickly as she can! That is a great developer right there! Highly recommend using AA. I personally have work, family, marching band, school, and kids calendars all in one place in different colors. When I add it to my family calendar in AA, it automatically goes to my apple calendar and goes to my shared family members. It’s wonderful.
The Silver Bullet
by WriterChristine on 2020/12/01 18:39
I’ve been searching for the perfect planner since the days of my first Palm Pilot. Paper planners are beautiful and inviting but there’s too much duplication of effort, copying things among the different views. And when I leave it at home...stuff just falls through the cracks. Electronic planners are always with me but they look like they were designed for function over form, and it felt like I was working for the planner instead of it working for me. Then I found Artful Agenda. All the beauty and attraction of a fun, create paper environment and all the functionality of a robust electronic planner tool. And it was fast and easy to get started with its seamless integration with my many Google calendars. 100% worth it.
The perfect planner!
by DrivenByJava on 2020/11/30 23:09
I have tried pretty much every planner out there, both pre made ones and bullet journaling. I used them all for a little while and them fell out of the habit on all of them. I finally realized it was because I needed sort of a hybrid planner. One that works digitally and syncs with my calendars, and one that gives me some creativity and lets me customize it. Artful Agenda is the perfect combination for me and is exactly what I needed but could never put my finger on. It is digital and syncs with my calendars, I don’t have to carry around a bulky planner with me, and I can customize it and make it my style. I think I have finally found the perfect planner and I am beyond happy (and focused)!
The answer to my digital calendar prayers 😆
by missmandiel on 2020/12/01 13:57
I am in love with this app. I have always used paper planners because I’m a very visual person and need that “pretty” factor. However, I always find myself abandoning my paper planners because I am a digital girl living in a digital world. Using Google calendar always just ends up being so much easier and feasible when on the go, rather than flipping through a planner to write something down. I just hated how blah and lacking in other life planner features it was. Artful Agenda gave me exactly what I needed— the beauty and features of a paper planner, in digital form. Katy and her team work endlessly to give users exactly what we ask for and the price point is most definitely fair for all it provides. I’m hopeful for an ability to add our own covers and fonts and integrate with other apps (maybe through Zapier) in the future. Also, they have an amazing FB community full of updates, offers, and other users sharing ideas. I highly recommend and stand by this app for visual planner users looking to go fully digital!!
Love the concept, needs work though
by angiebabybotch on 2019/10/25 22:10
I love the idea of having my planner on my phone and computer. I typically buy super expensive planners but then forget to write in it. It’s also hard to keep up with putting work schedules in it, as I have constant appointments and meetings already in my gmail work calendar. I love that it can sync up with all of my calendars. I don’t love that it consistently has soooo many errors. Even when I choose specific colors for my appointments, it will send an error message. It doesn’t have enough personalization options in my opinion. It also doesn’t have 30 minute time slots, which throws off my day to day tasks. I’m still on the 2 week trial and it’s ok. Not personalized or user friendly enough for me to pay for it monthly. Hopefully they add and fix some things because I love the idea.
The perfect digital planner!
by AngelaOesterreich on 2021/08/24 02:26
I have been a paper planner gal for a long time, but I was getting so tired of writing the same things over and over each year (birthdays and anniversaries). Plus, with my oldest in school, a planner for the year wasn’t aligning with her school calendar. I finally made the decision to give Artful Agenda a try, and I love it! It’s so convenient to have everything I need on the go, color coordinated, and to have those annual events fill themselves in without me having to spend time doing it over and over again. Plus, the lists feature is amazing, and I feel so accomplished when I can check items off and see my progress!
Best of both worlds!
by Jasmine Piotrkowski on 2020/09/04 09:57
I absolutely love this app! I really enjoy paper planners but had to also keep my iCloud/Google calendars up to date for my husband and son, which was annoying and always caused me to stop using my beautiful paper planners. This gives me the best of both worlds and I recommend it to everyone I know! I love the addition of repeating tasks and the rollover feature for unfinished ones, I’ve been waiting for them for ages!!!! The only features I would really like to see added are an Apple Watch app, the ability to upload custom images for the cover and stickers, and a search function like you get in other digital calendars.
Helps me keep my life in order
by Emmyboop on 2020/12/04 15:21
As a (pre-pandemic) homeschooler, full-time homemaker I have tried many planners to help me keep track of not only school and home task, but bills, doctors appts etc. I tried multiple paper planners, but eventually gave them all up because it was easier to just make a note in my phone than use a planner the size of a phone book. Artful Agenda gives me the functionality of my full-size planner with the pretty covers and stickers I love, and the ability to have my entire planner at my fingertips when I’m out and about. I’ve been using Artful Agenda for almost a year now and will definitely renew when the time comes.
Not for me
by Lesley McCarthy on 2021/07/29 17:36
I am unable to edit my previous one star review, so I wanted to make sure to compliment the customer service I received from Megan. I deleted the app the day I downloaded it due to it not working correctly and lack of customization options. I also could not sync it with my work calendar. My card was charged although I had deleted the app and the subscription. I contacted the company via email when I saw the charge. I’m not sure I sent the email to the correct email address. However, when Megan replied, she was very friendly and helpful. I got a refund, and she has been wonderful assisting me with the process. I updated my review to three stars because although the app was not the best fit for me, I was VERY pleased with the service I received.
So organized!
by Julie K. on 2021/08/30 23:42
I’ve struggled to find the perfect planner for years, but every planner always seemed to be missing something. This one has it all. It pulls in all your calendars, plus integrates between laptop, ipad and phone. The ability to add stickers and change covers also allows you to personalize it, and change with the season (or your mood). And the water tracker app, and meal planning window is also very handy. And the list feature is amazing. You can actually type notes and embed to do items in it, and link it to your calendar! Plus, this app has a great Facebook support community that shares ideas. Love love love it!

Why
by vtvfveegjuty7v on 2021/10/15 15:36
I love the app but it doesn’t have a widget for iPhone…
FRUSTRATED
by AliciaPL on 2021/10/14 02:27
I paid for the annual subscription, but I cannot access the account. When I select “forgot password,” I get a notification that there is no record of my email. According to my records, my subscription doesn’t expire until next year.
Former paper planner user
by Kaytmonster on 2021/10/13 16:09
I used to live and die by my Bujo. Problem being I didn’t always have it with me. Digital calendar programs like Google and iCal were not meeting my need for it to be appeasing to my eye. Thank goodness for Artful Agenda. The ability to work with my iCal, and have phone and computer interfaces is the best feeling in the world. I will admit I had taken a break from using it for about 3 months only using my iCal, but it bored me so much I had to come back.
Amazing!!!!
by LexxieK on 2021/10/13 12:01
This is by far the best digital planner I’ve ever used! I have tried everything since digital planners became available and this is the only one that does everything I need!!!! You won’t regret it if you choose to give it a try 💜💜💜
Love 💜
by Frustrated!1 on 2021/10/12 21:23
I was trying to decide if I was going to buy another paper planner or go fully digital. I did the trial period and then paid the annual subscription. I love how I can combine so many calendars into one! It has been amazing!!! I wish I could see the stickers on my phone, but maybe I’m doing something wrong. Love the new features of being able to change task lists names. The list section I use for journaling. It’s very pleasing to the eyes. Definitely worth the subscription and cheaper than a paper planner.
Love the idea
by Gemofamom on 2021/10/11 12:20
I love paper planners with all their color and stickers so I am excited to find it in my digital world. Look forward to planning with it!
SCAM- NO STARS!
by person who had their $ stolen on 2021/10/10 13:52
DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A “FREE TRIAL”. It is a scam and they will charge you immediately. I signed up and 15 min later deleted and unsubscribed and was was CHARGED 3 days later.
Disappointed
by 682503MA on 2021/10/09 16:12
The app looks perfect. The layout might be everything I hoped and dreamed it would be. However, if you don’t link it to one of your existing accounts such as Google or iCloud you are not allowed to use the app. Not interested.
Like a digital Passion Planner
by snaxkattaxk on 2021/10/07 05:12
I’m admittedly 100% terrible at organizing myself so I need reminders everywhere and easily accessible at all times. I would carry a physical one around because it had the most effective format for me, so I’d have to write everything twice (in monthly then in weekly+hourly) and then try to copy everything into my phone somehow. But this one is the format I like, and already in my phone so now I’m working smarter not harder. I love it and the yearly price is worth it. My lack of executive functioning is doing a happy dance lol
can’t do anything without paying
by @kittycaticorn on 2021/10/06 15:55
they force you to pay before you can do anything
Great for teachers and families alike
by Quil of LightingBlade on 2021/10/06 01:45
I am thrilled to find an app that lets me feel a bit more organized. I can have the feel of my paper planner and also integrate with my husband’s calendar too! I would love a bit more space to make notes and organize them, but overall I am thrilled!
Love this app but want some updates
by Poolblueyes on 2021/10/05 22:00
I love this app. I’m moving from a paper planner to using my phone. This is easy to use and has the features I need. I would love to see some updates to the backgrounds, please!
Can’t get passed setup.
by hoffmac on 2021/10/04 21:24
My iPad will not allow me to generate a authenticate password between the two. The directions do not apply as it is already on and yet I can’t figure out how to generate a stupid password.
I made the switch!
by Jennifer B. Photography on 2021/10/03 19:55
This is my first digital planner and I love how it syncs with my calendars!!! Amen!
Love love love!!
by charmsfour on 2021/09/28 18:52
I love this app! I tried the paper planners but I always seemed to go back to my digital calendar - the paper planner felt like a chore plus it was super pricey once you add in stickers and stuff. Artful agenda is the happy medium because you can still have that planner feel but all digital! Way more affordable too!! And less waste too!! They keep adding more features which is also a plus!!
LOVE IT
by 5D Listener on 2021/09/28 15:01
It’s easy to use. Fun and pretty. Everything and more of what you love from a paperback planner.
KEEPS ME ON TRACK
by 8abs1965 on 2021/09/26 18:19
Love being able to quickly access my calendar, agenda and tasks in a variety of views. Really able to stay organized at my finger tips.
So far, so good.
by WildFlower01 on 2021/09/25 14:11
I’m still in the trial phase, but so far I’m liking it! I’m very new to the digital planner world. This is the second digital planner I’ve tried. I almost quit after trying the first digital planner, so I’m glad I found this one. It is so easy to figure out, especially with the tutorials. It’s like using my old paper planner! I especially love how it can sync between my iPad and iPhone, so I always have it with me! I also love how easy it is to sync my Google and iCloud calendars and I didn’t have to transfer everything over manually. It would be nice to have a bill tracker tab and more sticker options or the option to import stickers from other sources. But, those aren’t deal breakers, I would definitely recommend this app.
The best digital planner around
by Stick clan on 2021/09/24 15:52
I’m loving Artful Agenda’s features and layouts. My favorite is how incomplete tasks carry over to the next day. They have even updated the app recently so you can write on it with Apple Pencil.
Love This App
by kschap09 on 2021/09/24 13:34
This app has been a perfect balance of what I look for in a paper planner in an online, easy-to-take-anywhere format. It’s been perfect for me!
Thankful
by Love Debs on 2021/09/24 12:47
Love the app It has really helped me stay on top of everything. Always buy paper calendars and it only lasts a month, never have it with me when I need it. So love having this app with me all the time. Having trouble syncing the app on my PC. It’s on the PC but won’t update when I add on my phone. I am sure it’s user error so still give this app 5 stars.
Love love love this agenda!!!
by gillalexsoph on 2021/09/23 18:37
I have been looking for an electronic agenda that will connect all of my calendars and to do lists in one place that was pretty and customizable. Finally I found it! Now I don’t have to use 3 different apps to keep track of everything. It’s easy to use, eye catching, and works across all my Apple devices so I always have it with me. And now that I can write with my apple pencil it even more fun to use. This is a great app!
Love it
by ConnieCSF on 2021/09/23 15:38
Use it daily to keep on track. Love the new ability to write with my Apple Pencil.
Love the Agenda

This is such an easy to use and I love the colors that help me identify my many different events I have going also the time. I don’t like the Privacy or lack thereof, but other than that I would recommend the app.
Artful Agenda
by BDebnam on 2021/09/23 02:46
I’ve really been enjoying artful agenda. I’m looking forward to the opportunity for a few changes that may be built into the app in the future. In particular, I would like to see the opportunity to change the size of various sections. Can’t wait to see what functionality comes next!
Love
by tracyxoruddy on 2021/09/22 22:13
I’ve been using this planner for two years. It was the first digital planner I used and coming from paper and pen I must say it is not missed ! The ability to functional plan while still being able to decorate is amazing! I also love that my planner can be used on my computer, my iPhone , and my iPad ! It also gives me reminders for up and coming task and appointments! Seriously GET THIS PLANNER !!! Your going to LOVE it !!!
Planner Nerd Finds a Home
by dje303 on 2021/09/22 21:48
Paper is so hard for me to give up. I love writing in a journal or planner but then I get lost or don’t have space to haul all my planning notebooks around. So as a business women digital is how I need to live my life. A planner just has to sync to my calendars and then allow me to plan task, quick to dosa and quick notes and tracking around that synced calendar. I am fully enjoying and tweaking how I use Artful Agenda. There’s the best of both worlds here! No more digital downloads that I have to write everything in daily - but I have the freedom with my iPad to take notes or write a quick to do list just like those left behind planning not booked or digital planners. THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER I’ve been waiting on for years!!
Fantastic Planner
by mgradowski on 2021/09/22 20:00
I have a full time job and am a graduate student, so I have a very full schedule. This app is fantastic because I can use it across all of my devices and it allows me to easily access what I have going on. I also really like that I can color code everything to make it easier to see what I have at a glance.
Sticking with it
by Trish s on 2021/09/22 17:52
I have a million planners, paper and digital. But so far I am able to stick with Artful agenda. Easy to use with my iPad,phone, surface and MacBook. It’s helping me to stay on track.
Great planner
by Rarest Generic on 2021/09/22 17:44
I love the convenience of an electronic planner with the fun of a paper one. I do wish the loading/syncing times were better when updating events, and inputting times on mobile with the wheel (rather than typing the times in) is a bit clunky. But overall, amazing product and well worth the price!
Love it!
by A. Ohmie on 2021/09/22 17:10
This is perfect for a visual person that needs to be able to digitally coordinate calendars with others.
Great App!
by JV in Idalou on 2021/09/22 17:07
I really love this app! It is perfect for me, allowing me to keep several calendars in one place. I also really like being able to see the calendar on my phone, iPad and desktop. The colors, stickers and overall look satisfy my creative side.
Love this app
by lovinlifehard on 2021/09/22 15:43
I really love this calendar. I am very much a paper and pencil type girl but this planner has changed the way I do things.
Love this Calendar
by PatLngr on 2021/09/22 15:19
The ease of use in Artful Calendar has been a game changer. I love that I can personalize so many features and I love that I can share a calendar with my husband and keep my own reminder calendar separate. It is colorful and fun and I highly recommend it!
The best of both worlds
by Ang0522 on 2021/09/22 15:12
I tried so hard to be a paper planner person, but always failed and it was never convenient. Finally I get all the pretty design and ease of digital calendars in one. My planner dreams come true. There’s a few bugs, but they are always fixing them quickly. Don’t hesitate!
Loving this!
by 987567076 on 2021/09/22 14:48
I was always nervous to have a digital only calendar but this one has made the switch from paper so easy! I highly recommend!
Love the layout
by rakoczyj on 2021/09/22 14:47
I love the layout and different view options easily seen (month, week, day). So colorful and makes scheduling and follow ups so easy!
Cool
by BeautyKween777 on 2021/09/22 14:41
The features are cool and better than many I have tried so far.
InLove with My Agenda

I absolutelt Love this very helpfull and keeps my uptodate daily😍❤️
Love this app!

Great App!
I love this agenda!
by Nene31055 on 2021/09/22 13:33
The features are great! It is an awesome accountability partner and satisfies both my left and right brain.
Love!!!
by JLHon on 2021/09/22 13:12
I love a planner and i love it on an electronic device. I also love the fact that I didn’t have to pay again just because I switched to Apple from Android
Perfect planner
by HeatherD61975 on 2021/09/22 12:52
I love the ease of this planner and being able to link to my google calendar is what I was looking for in a planner. My family can add or change events in their own calendar that is linked to my calendar making it easier to keep track of everyone’s schedule while I can enjoy the use of stickers and other embellishments. Being able to use my Apple Pencil just makes the app that much better.
Perfect for the GOLD personality organizers!!
by Sophie0923 on 2021/09/22 11:46
My true color - GOLD! By far, I am a person that needs: - LISTS!! - Has to feel prepare, or I lose my mind - Enjoys the “reward” for completion of a task - Loves keeping things organized and pretty This app allows you to do it all. Easy to see, easy to use, and perfect for productivity!!
Wonderful!!
by Jenn422 on 2021/09/22 11:27
I was so hesitant to leave my fun to decorate paper planner but I started using Artful Agenda a little over 6 months ago and I never looked back!
Great app!!
by BusyMomOf6RN on 2021/09/22 04:53
I’m fairly new and still learning so much but I love the customizing options I have! I love that it links up to other calendars! And they are always updating or adding to the app!!
Great app!
by Mommy2gav on 2021/09/22 02:44
This is a great app that matches so well with the computer based version. I was able To completely get rid of my large paper planner once I started using this! I love it.
Love it, even with some ideas to make it better!
by PinkWhimsy on 2021/09/22 02:07
I downloaded this app after looking for yet another way to track tasks, goals, etc. I’ve had probably four paper planners in the last six months and have used dozens and dozens of various GTD apps, from Reminders to Omnifocus, Things to TickTick and Todoist (all of them are fabulous and have their uses, but I get too bogged down in them!). I’ve even tried digital planners from Etsy in Goodnotes and Noteshelf. AA is definitely among my favorites! Love: different places for priority tasks versus other tasks; ability to change covers on a whim; different “handwriting” fonts; stickers stickers stickers (seriously I love how easy they are to use compared to in notebook apps); weekly view shows the daily priorities you’ve set; flexibility with titling different sections (I changed Meal Plan to just Dinner) Wishlist: handwriting (which I know is coming soon) and scribble support; mooooore stickers!; ability to move or change the layout of daily and weekly spreads; ability to add custom sections (budgeting, goal setting, etc) (could see this being useful in app purchases!) Overall: excellent implementation, reasonably priced (good yearly planners can easily be $60 or more), and the devs are consistently working to make things better!
Great
by Hwinger828 on 2021/09/22 01:47
I love this app! It works great and it’s so helpful! I like how it syncs up with my email and it automatically adds it to my agenda. I like how I can customize it with different skins. I really do hope we will get an update if skins so that we can change them if we like. I also hope we get a widget soon. I would like to have it on the front of my phone.
Excellent Planner
by aJennyD on 2021/09/22 01:42
I hardly ever leave reviews, but this app has really changed my life. I have spent over $500 on other planner apps, paper planners and anything else I could find, only to find that what I needed was not obtainable with any of these options. After searching (and even asking some college guys to help me make a planner that would work) I happened upon Artful. I was extremely skeptical, but the more I used it, the better it got. I have been able to add all of my calendars and color code them. I have my work calendar, side hustl calendar, personal calendar and family even calendar all in one place. So many amazing features and I have reached out to tech support a few times with questions and get the answers back so fast it’s amazing. The Tech Support is the best I have ever worked with and they are very helpful and concise. I will be using this amazing program for years to come.
Great blend of digital and paper
by krystal704 on 2021/09/22 01:21
This is exactly what I needed. I kept looking for paper and digital planners that I wouldn’t have to use both to achieve what I wanted, but to no avail. Artful agenda is that perfect combination. I know new features keep rolling out, so that’s awesome too.
Best organizer / planner yet
by D.N.S.88 on 2021/09/22 01:20
I always feel like I needed a big bulky planner to keep everything in. I started off well but then would get tired of carrying it everywhere. Here is the best of both worlds. I can change the boxes to make them reflect my life and have so many options for fonts, covers and stickers you never get tired. I have it downloaded on my husbands phone as well so he is always up to date. This one is a keeper for sure.
No other planner like it
by LSauvageau on 2021/09/22 01:14
I can’t say enough good things about this app. There are a few things I would adjust if I ruled the world but not many. Having something that syncs with Google calendars is huge. Now when my family changes something, I have it right in my planner. I use it on my laptop, my Android tablet, and my iPhone. Couldn’t be more convenient.
Digital Planner Perfection
by allyrod08 on 2021/09/22 00:49
Artful Agenda has been a lifesaver! I love the stickers, and creativity that comes with a paper planner, but they have just been unsustainable for the day-to-day reality of life. Artful Agenda has been the perfect transition from paper planner to digital planner, and has been 100% sustainable for me. I love being able to integrate multiple email accounts, because I can see an overview of both my personal day, kids' day, and work day in one spot. This has been so helpful in scheduling appointments for my children (no longer toggling between all the calendars). I love the sticker packs, color coding, and customizable note sections in Artful Agenda. It allows for recurring tasks (no more writing "Trash Day" in my paper planner every week). The Lists section has also been a very nice feature. Highly recommend Artful Agenda! I'm able to efficiently track my personal life, my children's schedules and due dates, significant dates/things for my husband, our home, and my blog work all in one place. Love the app, the Facebook group, and the work that is being done to constantly improve the user experience.
You won’t regret it!
by d. breheim on 2021/09/22 00:40
I love this app! It’s made getting everything from bills to my husband’s work schedule, doctors appointments & everything else you could think of! I especially like that it’s something that i don’t have to worry about keeping away from my kids, I’d easily be able to lock my devices, where as with the traditional planner you’d have to worry about writing utensils & it being ripped! Overall 10/10 recommend for ease of use & convenience!
Amazing
by mamaLulu1108 on 2021/09/22 00:39
I’m an obnoxious organizer 😂 and I love the layout and how easy it is to navigate to my different lists. I tell every one to download. It does my organizational heart good!!!!
Agenda heaven
by karigtz on 2021/09/22 00:14
It’s absolutely perfect, easy to use and extremely fun.
Fantastic Agenda
by TheHappyTeach on 2021/09/22 00:05
I love this online agenda and how it made having multiple calendars so convenient into one! This is a definite plus for anyone who love to be super organized in a beautiful way and decorative way!
Obsessed with this app!!
by girl1105 on 2021/09/22 00:00
So I’m a huge bullet journaler but there are some months/weeks/etc that I just can’t get into it. This definitely helps with that. I like that it’s more aesthetic than the regular apple calendar app because there are stickers, fun fonts, etc. I haven’t been able to make the other digital planners I’ve attempted work out however this one does work with and for me.
Love it!!!
by talarekmama03 on 2021/09/21 23:26
I absolutely love this app for keeping my family’s chaotic schedule organized. I love how I can color coordinate each person as well as make lists for trips, groceries, etc…
I love the APP
by heeeygirlhey on 2021/09/21 23:19
I use to use google calendar until i found artful agenda. It honestly has been amazing. I tell everyone I know about it because it helps not only keep me organized but focused as well. It has so many features that I didn’t have on my google calendar and with a planner like myself this was just the app I needed to make life that much easier.
Super fun app!
by anapurnas on 2021/09/21 23:09
I love how this is so visually appealing and I especially love the lists feature. For some reason it’s much more intuitive for me to use the lists here than in other apps. I am not a big user of the stickers etc but I wish I had the time to use them! I think it’s fun to use and therefore it means I’ll see my to-do’s because a calendar only works if you look at it!
Replacement for paper planner
by Inf. Bladed on 2021/09/21 23:06
This gives me all of the features of a paper planner, minus the feel of actually writing. However it is sooooo much more convenient than having to haul around a cumbersome paper planner.
Helpful ADD tool
by NatL6 on 2021/09/21 23:00
So far it’s helped getting me back on track to getting some control over some disorganization in my life. I was an obsessive planner person and then kind of fell off. I have too much to lug around between work and online classes so this is has started to help with online (windows), iPhone & iPad all working together.
Love it
by Dbeatty1020 on 2021/09/21 22:58
My biggest complaint moving from Android to iPhone was losing my calendar. This app is perfect to color code my 4 kids and easily see who needs to be where when…and the monthly and weekly views are great for quickly figuring it all out!
Best Digital Planner!!!
by Sunnygirl858 on 2021/09/21 22:47
I was once addicted to my Happy Planner. I never would have thought I would ever go to a digital planner…..but I have been an Artful Agenda gal for over a year now. I LOVE it!!!! Favorite features…..stickers, repeating events and colorful themes!!!
Great app across platforms
by Las bound on 2021/09/21 22:40
I was looking for a planner app to use across multiple platforms (ios, android, windows) and this one seems to fit the bill. Developers are very open to suggestions for improvement and often release updates. Great option to replace the paper planner.
Love it all
by KFlaget on 2021/09/21 22:30
Love the app to help coordinate everything into one place and having the ability to see everything thing in the calendar as opposed to having to open each date to see events
Life Changing!
by ArtandYoga on 2021/09/21 22:30
I have tried every planner out there- and this is by far the best! To have everything in the same place is so perfect. Lists, calendar, notes, reminders… stickers… Facebook group… it’s just the best. Try her free trial and see how awesome it is!
Love it!
by Jmtwice on 2021/09/21 22:24
I love an old-fashioned paper planner and really struggled to make the jump to a digital planner but I am so glad I did. I love Artful Agenda and all the features it offers. I recommend using the trial version to get use to the features. I was able to sync it with several calendars and I can color coordinate my clients. Love it!
Just what I needed
by twantuck on 2021/09/21 22:02
Have been looking for a planner for a while. Came across this one and actually went past the trial time. I find myself not always canceling before cause I wasn’t able to do as much. Only problem I have is that it takes a little to load. I love that I can add stickers an change colors an frames.
Wonderful Tactile Planner with the Convenience of Digital!
by Ibram Gaunt on 2021/09/21 21:56
I love bullet journals. I think they’re beautiful and expressive, and such a visually appealing way to stay organized and on top of things. But for me, they take waaaaay to much creative time and energy for me to actually benefit from it at the current time in my life. But other calendar apps just aren’t engaging enough for me to use consistently. Enter Artful Agenda. It brings a visual, tactile element to my ever-present digital devices, which also works to keep it handy at all times. While I prefer using it on the iPad, the ability to see it on my phone while out and about means I’m way more likely to update and use it when I need it. I’m very excited to see more customization and flexibility come to the app (I know scribbling with the Pencil is in beta now!), so in time, I envision the ability to do full on bullet journal level art styles when time allows, with the same low creative and raw physical material investment that frees up my sketching in Procreate.
Easy to use & convenient
by steelersgirl68 on 2021/09/21 21:53
I have tried several other digital planners and have abandoned them because they were either too complicated, required using multiple apps to run them, or a syncing issues with multiple accounts. The Artful Agenda is extremely easy to set up and use. It works conveniently with all my devices and all my accounts sync without any issues. Additionally, the cost is affordable! I love the bonus stickers and layouts that give it the paper planner features I love. I highly recommend this this app planner. The only suggestion I have is to add a view of the full year.
Love the app
by ChrisRed13 on 2021/09/21 21:50
I replaced a paper Erin Condren planner with this app on my iPad. It does everything the paper one did and more, plus I don’t have to lug a book and pens around. I like that it syncs with my phone so I can jot an appointment down at doctor’s office and it carries over. Having the option to pick and change covers, handwriting styles, colors, and to use stickers satisfies my need to be creative and doodle like I did with the paper planner. My only suggestion is regarding the stickers. They look great when I put them into the pages on my iPad. But when I look at the app on my iPhone, the stickers are disproportionately large and not centered how I had them. Also I would like more covers and handwriting styles someday.
Great Calendar App
by Bridgett413 on 2021/09/21 21:35
I’ve been using Artful Agenda for almost a year now. It works great to keep our schedules and even syncs with my son’s baseball schedule. I love being able to change up colors as my mood changes. Highly recommend!
Planner
by EmilyDP15 on 2021/09/21 21:34
Love this planner. I have always been one to have a planner but never found one I like app wise. I love this planner and will not go back to the paper planner which is huge for me. It’s so easy, stylish and a great community if you have any questions. My husband loves it too because he can log on and see what’s going on for the month
Pretty great!
by CynthiaLeigh on 2021/09/21 21:33
I can’t wait until I can use my Apple Pencil & write as well as type. No more diaries, journals, and agendas to buy. It’s all about the digital world of Artful Agenda!
Love It!
by Jlthatcher on 2021/09/21 21:33
Love this app….still learning but it does everything I want!
Finally!
by TieryBella on 2021/09/21 21:29
Finally I have an agenda app that actually does what it’s supposed to do. Very easy to use, and worth the monthly fee. I am sold for life!
The Best!
by RealtorKarenA on 2021/09/21 21:22
I love this app! I sync it between my iPhone, my iPad and my Mac. It’s easy to use! No more paper calendars! I’d love less “cute” stickers. Definitely need an airplane for travel, a real estate sticker pack (listing, showings, closings, inspections, escrow due, trainings, conference, etc). Love to see more business sticker packs and more motivational sayings! Maybe more covers too? I love this system though and I was a die hard paper planner person! I have started using the lists more too. My office is getting totally paperless! I spend less money with this system too.
So convenient
by SuzThomas on 2021/09/21 21:21
I really like the ability to add something to my calendar using my phone when an idea pops in my head. Then sit at my desktop and there it is. I have always been a paper planner person. I tried digital calendars but they just seemed so bland. The artful agenda gives me the fun look of a paper planner with the ease of use.
Highly recommend
by nyjenniev789 on 2021/09/21 21:15
This calendar is awesome. It’s very easy to get around and the layout is perfect for me. For example I have the option to see the month, week and day View (as most calendars apps) but when I switch to the Dayview I have the option of priority tasks and sub tasks. (I LOVE THIS!!!) In addition there’s a task page in which I created a to do list, a shopping list, a journal and long and short term goals. The stickers are also super cute and they are icing on the cake
Fantastic planner!
by C_Holecek on 2021/09/21 21:01
I was a die hard physical planner person, until I found Artful Agenda! The ease of use and ability to use it as a notebook as well, perfection!
Great app!
by Granipanties on 2021/09/21 20:59
Was lacking ability to use pencil but that has been added. Just tested out handwriting option coming soon and that’s the icing on the cake.
Bye Bye Paper Planner
by Sch214 on 2021/09/21 20:51
Being able to update my calendar on the app and desktop is so convenient. I was a die hard paper planner, and haven’t touched it since downloading the app.
Agenda
by francojacobos on 2021/09/21 20:49
This is exactly what I was looking for! The layout is great and the fonts are fun - beautiful app
Love
by vjense on 2021/09/21 20:47
I love using my the app in my phone as my personal planner. I don’t have to worry about carrying my planner book all around with me anymore.
Exactly what I needed
by klubax on 2021/09/21 20:47
Exactly what I was looking for. Love how easy it is to navigate and be able to make a colorful calendar and exited for the new updates that are coming! Like being able to write freestyle
So useful!
by NikkiMaldo on 2021/09/21 20:40
I absolutely love this agenda! It’s easy to use and perfect when I’m on the go. I access it from my phone, laptop, and desktop. Way easier than lugging a thick agenda around. I love that we can customize it and make it cute like the tangible ones. And the price is comparable.
Love this app!
by !lynne8 on 2021/09/21 20:40
Great online app - has all the functionality of a physical paper planner but easier to carry with me!
I use it every day
by Knotted treasure on 2021/09/21 20:38
I love artful agenda. I used to have a paper bullet journal, but as life gets more complicated, copying the to-dos from week to week was very time consuming. And now that it is digital I always have it with me wherever I go. I love that I can still customize and use colors and stickers to make it feel more fun and personal.
Worth every penny!!
by t_widdifi on 2021/09/21 20:37
For what I use to pay for a paper planner this is cheap!!! I love that it combines with all my calendars and across all my devices!!
Love it!
by ItsMeMsV on 2021/09/21 20:37
I wouldn’t be able to get through nursing school without this app! I schedule all my reading, lectures, exams, etc. here and check them off as I finish them. It keeps me on track!
Love it!
by Yatesj on 2021/09/21 20:36
I am a very visual person and I live the functionality of this app and accompanying site. It gives me a single place to compile all of my dates with online access and great visuals.
Love, Love, Love
by coffeeunicornqueen on 2021/09/21 20:36
I couldn’t be happier with this app. I can use it on my phone, tablet, computer, whatever I have handy. I am able To keep my busy active family on track!
Easy to Use!!
by BkBsjsje zoansj on 2021/09/21 20:34
I love the ease of this app! It syncs with my iPhone so I don’t have to enter or change tho Hs twice. I’m telling my friends about it!!
My Right Arm
by Toxicdiva on 2021/09/21 20:32
I absolutely love this app. There are so many features combined in one planning solution. It has stickers, it syncs with my google calendar, I can change the covers, and it has color-coding. I can’t wait for some of the upcoming features like being able to use my Apple Pencil.
OBSESSED
by Penguin butt!! on 2021/09/21 20:30
I have searched for an agenda/planner that would work for me for what seems like forever. I couldn’t be happier. I’m in love!!!
Makes my life easier!
by VickieCain on 2021/09/21 20:27
I love this agenda! I was a paper-carrying planner person for more than 25 years and this has easily replaced it!
Love The Layout
by tschomp68 on 2020/04/25 13:38
I love this app. I honestly feel a lot more productive since using it. The layout is perfect to see my calendar and tasks and also the meal plan for the week/day. I love the planner feel of it because I have always been a paper planner person but I need my planner to be electronic so I always have it in my hand. However I only gave it four stars because of things that I think could improve for the tasks. This is honestly the first app review I have ever written and I’m writing it because I love this app and I’m hoping the creators can tweak these couple things. 1. I would love to be able to categorize my tasks. Even if I can just change the font color that would be huge! As long as I can visually see the different colors for my tasks then I can mentally know what category they fall under. 2. I know others have mentioned this but being able to repeat tasks would be amazing and save a good bit of time re-typing them in. I do love that I don’t have to schedule a time for them because that bothers me so much about other to do list apps. But if we could repeat things it would help a lot.
Amazing Planner
by _Jessica_Renae_ on 2021/02/01 14:40
I love this app & website. I work remotely and in office and was struggling to keep up with all my tasks in a paper planner. I’ve tried a few digital ones, but I missed the fun of a physical one. This one was the perfect solution. Here’s what I love about it. 1. I love the individualization aspect (cover, “handwriting”, etc.). The lists give you so many options to make it what you want and there’s even a section in you day to day planner where you can change it to what you want. 2. It helps to be able to type something into my phone, then view it on my computer later or vice versa. I use it during meetings due to this function. 3. I can keep up with projects or make lists for personal vs work tasks then assign them to a day. This has been a life saver for keeping up with my bills. 4. You can create events in it (& invite people) and it’ll sync to your other calendars. *My only wish is that I use to have a Samsung phone before an Apple and it had an awesome widget for this app. I’m a visual person so I liked being able to see it, and the beautiful cover, on my home screen. I was disappointed Apple doesn’t have it yet, though I’ve read they are working on it. Fingers crossed it comes soon. Highly recommend Artful Agenda, I brag on it so much that coworkers are now subscribing too.
Love it, even with some ideas to make it better!
by PinkWhimsy on 2021/09/22 02:07
I downloaded this app after looking for yet another way to track tasks, goals, etc. I’ve had probably four paper planners in the last six months and have used dozens and dozens of various GTD apps, from Reminders to Omnifocus, Things to TickTick and Todoist (all of them are fabulous and have their uses, but I get too bogged down in them!). I’ve even tried digital planners from Etsy in Goodnotes and Noteshelf. AA is definitely among my favorites! Love: different places for priority tasks versus other tasks; ability to change covers on a whim; different “handwriting” fonts; stickers stickers stickers (seriously I love how easy they are to use compared to in notebook apps); weekly view shows the daily priorities you’ve set; flexibility with titling different sections (I changed Meal Plan to just Dinner) Wishlist: handwriting (which I know is coming soon) and scribble support; mooooore stickers!; ability to move or change the layout of daily and weekly spreads; ability to add custom sections (budgeting, goal setting, etc) (could see this being useful in app purchases!) Overall: excellent implementation, reasonably priced (good yearly planners can easily be $60 or more), and the devs are consistently working to make things better!
Great Planner
by u3gfybvuvksygkevf on 2021/03/25 20:50
I’ve always been a paper planner person. When my favorite was discontinued, I’ve been on a very expensive journey since, trying to find the best fit. I found the busier I have become with work and personal life, carrying a paper planner was not working as well. After trying a few digital planners I came across Artful Agenda. I used it for 2 days and immediately decided this was the one. I went ahead and paid the annual fee. I carry two phones with me and when my work phone is put away for family time, I love that I can still look on my personal phone and see my work schedule when trying to plan something. I keep my AG open on my laptop all day at work because it is my go to for all things appointment, tasks, and list related. I really love this calendar. A few things I wish it had but lacked, is that when in landscape mode on your phone, that the calendar would landscape as well. It currently does not. Also wish you could zoom in on the page. These are not a deal breaker for me though, since it checks off what I need it to do.
More creative then a standard calendar
by Mustng_grl on 2021/07/10 03:00
I love that it syncs with Google Calendar!!!! Nothing stinks more then having to manually redo a calendar because you can’t import data! Would love more stickers. I’m a scrapbooker and love love love all sorts of stickers. For example a hair cut sticker, a braces sticker to differentiate between a regular dentist and orthodontist appointment. I am a mom of 5 so my kids do all sorts of activities (Boy scouts, flag football, soccer, gymnastics, etc). We love the zoo. Next year we are hoping to go to DisneyWorld so a Disney sticker would be cool… I would also love a Journaling tab to be added. A place I can put my thoughts that are not lists/to-do’s. More text colors would be great as a family of 7, I assign each person a different color, school calendars 2 colors (one for the elementary and another for preschool), a color for birthday/holidays. And another one for the whole family events. I like to use colors that stand out differently from each other. I have seen other apps have a place to keep track of digital subscriptions and budgets. Any possibility you will be adding this as well? I have a tablet on my list wish because working on my iPhone 12 Pro makes everything so little. I like being able to see all my events for the day when I am in monthly view…
My planner peace
by Julmal28 on 2020/07/29 14:05
I've done paper planners. Lots of them. I like them but always felt there was a clumsiness when I need it with me. I tried digital planners and transferring calendar items was a waste of time. I found Artful Agenda. This is my planner peace. Convenience of my planner with me at all times. Desktop, iPad and phone. Like a digital planner but syncing all of my calendars (work and personal) is so time saving, productive and plain helpful. I love the tasks section and notes which i use for my budget tracking. This is the longest I've stuck with consistently tracking my budget and financial goals. and LISTS!!! Finally I have a convenient place for my notes, turning them into action items and assigning to appropriate day via tasks. This is an all in one app for what I use to use separately (calendar, tasks, notes). I haven't even touched on the customer support. I made a near fatal error with a list and they were able to fix for me. AMAZING. They listen to feedback and constantly improve the app. I am a lifer. Clearly I'm a fan.
Wonderful Tactile Planner with the Convenience of Digital!
by Ibram Gaunt on 2021/09/21 21:56
I love bullet journals. I think they’re beautiful and expressive, and such a visually appealing way to stay organized and on top of things. But for me, they take waaaaay to much creative time and energy for me to actually benefit from it at the current time in my life. But other calendar apps just aren’t engaging enough for me to use consistently. Enter Artful Agenda. It brings a visual, tactile element to my ever-present digital devices, which also works to keep it handy at all times. While I prefer using it on the iPad, the ability to see it on my phone while out and about means I’m way more likely to update and use it when I need it. I’m very excited to see more customization and flexibility come to the app (I know scribbling with the Pencil is in beta now!), so in time, I envision the ability to do full on bullet journal level art styles when time allows, with the same low creative and raw physical material investment that frees up my sketching in Procreate.
On its way to greatness!
by Camperoo on 2020/07/17 03:21
This is the seed of a great app but several things are preventing me from recommending it at this point. #1–the stickers are a unorganized, ugly and do not stay precisely where placed—not on the same device and not from one device to another, they seem to snap to some predetermined location just off of where I actually placed them. I want aesthetically pleasing stickers with precise placement—the whole upside of this app over other calendars is supposed to be the pretty factor yes? #2-so much wasted screen space! On both the iPad and desktop. The leafy background is pretty but wastes screen real estate to the point where I can’t read my calendar, even on my 16” MacBook. #3-the price is outrageous, it doesn’t offer $4/month in value over just using Google or Apple calendars. ...For now I will continue to use my GoodNotes digital planner and wait for this app to mature and get significantly cheaper. It has a fantastic idea but it just wasn’t functional enough to pay a premium monthly price for—yet! Keep the updates coming and I’ll be back to check it out next year :)
Like it but something is missing
by Bookworm4days on 2020/12/14 18:56
I like this app. It had everything I wanted in a calendar app. One of the main things was the fact that you can block out time in your calendar and sync with your other calendars. I also love that we can change the hex codes to coordinate with the colors we want. I just wished I could save all the colors I chose so I don’t have to write down the color codes somewhere else. Also, the meal section seems to have a glitch. Only a third of the box works. The rest of it you can’t even type on. The other task section doesn’t move to the next line when whatever you type is longer than the width of the box. That really annoyed me. I also wished there was an option to upload your own stickers to the app because I’m not a big fan of the stickers that they offer. All in all, it worked well but not for the yearly price. I think I will continue to search for the perfect planner app and stick to my digital planner on my GoodNotes app until I find something worth paying for.
Best Calendar App!
by CrysAria on 2020/12/01 02:24
I love Artful Agenda! I used to have a paper planner and undone tasks would get lost, I had to rewrite things from the family digital calendar and vice versa, I forgot deadlines... a|a has changed all that! I am more productive, I don’t forget the little things, and I get to play with digital stickers to make my planner cute! Plus I’m saving a ton of money not buying paper planners, stickers, etc. One of the best things for me personally is that a calendar I’m subscribed to for my church’s board (I’m on the Board of Trustees) NEVER showed up on Google no matter how many times I reset it; but it shows up on a|a! That has been incredibly helpful since I’m also on committees and there have been days I forgot we had a meeting until the president sent the 1 hr reminder. That is a thing of the past with a|a. Their customer service is fabulous, the FB group is fun and helpful, and you can’t go wrong with a free trial. Just get it. You’ll love it!
Great alternative to paper planner
by quirkyish on 2019/06/18 03:09
I love paper planners in theory—and often buy 2 every year—but practically, the ones that work best for my needs are too bulky and heavy to carry around all the time. Enter Artful Agenda. I’ve been using it for a few months, and I am hooked! I love that the planner is with me anytime I have my phone (or iPad or laptop). I love that the app syncs with calendars across platforms (Outlook, google, Mac). And I especially love that the planner is well-designed and includes creative elements like different cover designs, font choices, and digital stickers. I know a lot of people don’t like the idea of paying a subscription fee, but for me, the Artful Agenda subscription price is less than I’ve been paying for a paper planner each year. (And, again, I often bought 2 per year. 🤷🏻‍♀️) Paying less money for a planner that I will actually use and not end up leaving at home is win-win for me!
Paper Planner Convert
by Stormy/Swift on 2021/08/29 22:56
I have always used paper planners. I love to pick one that is as beautiful as it is functional, which is why I shied away from using the calendar app that came with my phone. However, with kids going in many directions, I found that I need to be able to communicate our ever changing schedule with my husband and kiddos more easily, so I was thrilled to find Artful Agenda. It is very easy to use so I got up and running in no time. I sync it to our family sharing calendar so they can see what’s going on. I can easily switch between my iPad and phone and I love that you can change the font and colors and also add stickers and lists to each day. The developers are very involved in asking for suggestions and implementing upgrades, as well as helping with technical issues. And there’s a Facebook group full of tips and help. Highly recommend!
Good but could use improvement!
by nako0507 on 2021/03/29 22:14
Although I genuinely enjoy this app, I feel like there are several improvements that need to be made in order for it to be great. My main criticism is pretty small — I would like to be able to customize the quotes that are autogenerated. Some of the quotes that come up are by people who I know to be historical figures that I have strong political disagreements with. This ruins the experience for me, and I would love to be able to simply edit and put my own quote there. I also think the alarms should be more customizable. Currently, I am only able to set alarms for 9 AM, which is not very helpful in terms of reminding me for an appointment. I would also appreciate the ability to synchronize with people using other software, such as google calendars. I prefer this to google calendars, but I would like to be able to sync with other people who use it and invite them to edit my events. Other than that, I appreciate this app’s usability and how it lets me customize my day.
Great for teaching/momming/organizing my ADD
by jessicaheckles on 2020/01/23 21:26
I’m an elementary school teacher, a mom and live with ADD. My worlds frequently become too much to juggle independently and I’d get planner overload and organizing fatigue. Stuff would slip, I’d miss appts and feel like garbage. Using artful agenda for like a week and I already feel more in control of all the things to remember. I like the calendar sync being easy, I made family to share with husband and work and personal calendars. I can organize all the teacher stuff separately and it’s visually appealing, so I want to use it. Having add I have tried every paper/online calendar and have usually Multiple ones that don’t cover it all. This feels good, clean and I can be on top of things. The stickers are adorable, the covers are chic and the Facebook group actually gives suggestions about what is coming next or what features we’d like in the future.
Nice digital planner
by StuartJH01056 on 2021/06/18 22:57
I’ve never written an app review before, but I had to write one for this app. I love that it integrates with my Google calendar, let’s me keep track of tasks, and helps me track meals and water intake. I’ve been using this for about three weeks and I love it so far. I really really love paper planners but can never keep up with them and always end up using my Google calendar. This gives me the experience of a paper planner and ability to write lists with the Google calendar integration. Well worth the price (which is less than what I was paying yearly for fancy paper planners). I would like more covers and more sticker options. I would also like it if somehow the colors of the tasks on Google calendar could also transfer to the artful agenda; but I have no idea how this would work and I’m doing ok color coding tasks in both without it.
Franklin planner meets digital era
by Old crickety momma on 2021/08/30 00:49
I’m old school. I began my adult life using a Franklin planner. After becoming a mom and then the invention of iPhones with Reminders and iCal syncing across all platforms I did away with my paper planner, but I always missed the focused approach to tasks, prioritizing them and carrying them over when they didn’t get completed. Setting monthly goals to keep me on track with my values, and the blank page on the right where I could jot down notes, directions, thoughts, feelings, etc. Then I found Artful Agenda and the hallelujah chorus sang! It’s like a marriage between my old planner life and my new digital life. I can have multiple calendars for home and work, and I can identify important tasks for each day. I’ll be a life long user. They are continuously making improvements and seeking to make it the best planner ever. Try it, you’ll like it 😉
Great digital alternative with paper planner options
by notjustm0m on 2020/12/01 19:12
I started using a|a a few months ago and they have already come out with several updates. I love that it seamlessly syncs with my native Apple calendar app so I can still share calendars with my husband and daughter but they don’t need a new app-Cozi didn’t work for us because he already uses 2 calendar apps (one for work Outlook and a personal one on Apple) and didn’t want another place to look. This way I get to have a fun calendar that caters to my artistic side and still syncs with our shared calendars. I use several Google calendars as well and they all sync to my Artful Agenda calendar. I’ve gotten a lot of great ideas from the private Facebook group as well. Glad I signed up for the 2 week trial and have already purchased another annual subscription. Happy planning!
Needs work...
by Delta.esme on 2021/04/28 20:02
Update: I’m really enjoying this agenda now. Started paying now for some months after all the updates. I especially like the notifications and stickers. Note to developer: I need the ability to change the notification alarm and length of the sound. For the most part, I see it but most of the time I can’t hear it. I tried looking for a way to change that but I can’t. Thank you for keeping up with the all aspects of this app. I enjoy using it more now. I love paper agendas and have paid a lot to have all the features this electronic agenda has but this is much better than paper. I really enjoyed the app but as some reviews have stated it’s not worth the price per month. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the visual of it. So much nicer than all the other apps but that’s it. Without push notifications or reminders it’s useless cause I forget to check the time. I need a way to remind me it’s time for the next appointment. I can’t keep looking at my watch or clock for that. Also, it has too many bugs. I’m glad it’s getting repaired as soon as reported but again for the price they should not be so many. I will look again in a few months to see the changes because I do like it, but until I see what I need, I have cancelled my subscription.
Never going back to a paper planner!
by NisShe on 2021/06/06 11:04
I have been addicted to paper planners for my whole life. I was super stubborn about changing that. I thought if I migrated to a digital space, I’d lose the thrill of cracking open a new planner or that I’d become ever more reliant on my phone, among other concerns. But I am soooooo pleased with this app. I’m three weeks in and I am continuing to find new features I love. First time I’ve ever paid for an app too. And I mean, ever. Worth every cent. I feel so organized and I also love that I can still have the fun of customizing my planner with different colors/backgrounds. I don’t have to be glued to my phone either as there is a connected desktop app (desktop app bonus: you get a daily quote all of which have been lovely). Honestly, this has been so impressive and I am never looking back!
Definitely worth it- but where’s the widget?
by nhbfgobfbguf on 2021/06/13 11:48
I was on the fence about spending this much money on a planner, but I end up spending more on physical planners after I ruin them or need to change dates I’ve already written in. I’m a bit of a perfectionist so I’m picky to the point where if my handwriting is off even a little, I need to redo it. This is so nice because you can change everything, including dates or even the stickers you drag and drop. I love everything about this planner. The one thing I would love to see would be an option for the widget the way the system calendar has one. I’d love to see the activities for the day I have planned in and I only have my AA calendar updated to reflect this. I’d love to be able to see a quick short version of the day on the Home Screen.
Loved the App but...
by KnittinKittin72 on 2020/02/02 18:55
I wish there was a few different features that would make it more customizable. For me, I would have loved a light and dark mode. I wish colors would synch w my a Google calendar so that each person was the same color on both calendars. I also wish there were more stickers. I realize those are all “me” issues and did not play into my resetting of the app What did make me rate it a 4 and not a 5 is it being a little fiddly on my mobile devices. I have to move the app around the screen to get to something like the water minder. I’d rather the different features be tabbed or all in one screen. I hate having to scroll or move the screen to find things. Other then that, it is an amazing app!!!!
Beautiful and Functional!
by Pip0428 on 2019/06/29 10:53
I don’t normally write reviews but this morning I was so impressed when looking through this app. Not only is it beautifully designed, but it’s very functional. I love that you can connect to calendars that you’ve already created on other platforms, making transitioning to this planner simple. I love that you can change the color of the appointments, and there are a lot of color choices! And several different background options! I also love that there is a monthly goals section, as well as a task list at the bottom of each day. I love that you are able to tick off those tasks also. I also really love that there is a meal section where you can, for my purpose, either track the meals that you have been eating throughout the day, or you can plan meals in the section. And right below that, a water tracker! I would love to see, sometime, that the water tracker could be customized by each individual (cup size in oz, number of cups, etc). I also appreciate the different views on the calendar, monthly, weekly, daily. So far I have really loved everything that I’ve discovered and I look forward to the upcoming updates that are mentioned! This is truly the app I’ve been looking for!
Good, still needs a lot of work!
by Jay1409 on 2019/11/15 23:36
I will start off by saying that I love this app. Even though it’s all digital, it gives the beauty of a customized paper planner: beautiful backgrounds, lists, meal and water tracking, amongst many other wonderful features. It could still use a lot of work as there still is a lot of errors that occur within the app but it’s nothing that keeps me from using it. If I ever have any issues that occur, all I do is go into the Support tab and use the contact form to inform the team of my issues and they either solve it with a bug update or a resolution. It could use a few more custom options, such as how many reminders are allowed per event (such as 2 days before an event and the hour before), but it’s an A+ app. I highly recommend it!
I’m in love
by lyricallynny on 2019/10/03 03:30
I had seen digital planners before but getting them to interact with my main calendar (Apple) never seemed to work quite right which meant my husband wouldn’t get the updates. Deal-breaker. I am also one who adores pretty planners and often have one that gets sporadically filled out. Anyway, about this product. I’m in awe. It’s beautiful, it’s functional, it syncs between my laptop and phone, it’s giving me all the control to tweak it that I like and it functions just like a paper one but without having to recopy what was on the month to the week to the day. I love that it has lists and I can customize colors. I can choose to have the school sports calendar fed into it when my child is playing and hide it when the season is over. It’s pretty darn brilliant.
Almost... perfect
by hellonicknamehere on 2019/12/14 18:51
There are a few things that are missing that I hope the developers will include soon. First, alerts and reminders as an option, similar to the iPhone calendar, there is an option for alerts/reminders for appointments. Also, in the video tutorial for the desktop feature mentioned we can add multiple email addresses, the app it doesn’t have that option. Lastly, in the app there are sections of priority list, other tasks (which is similar to the priority list format), and custom list. I wish there was a way the user can customize the “custom list” section to a note section, or similar to the pictures of this app, it showed a “gratitude journal” section which the app currently doesn’t have. I would completely transition to using just this planner, however I found myself using both the iPhone calendar and this planner.
In love with this planner app!
by ChelebeeM on 2021/08/23 21:10
I was always a paper pencil planner type of gal but have completely switched over with Artful Agenda! I love the ability to customize and personalize its aesthetics with the stickers and covers. I like that it syncs to Google calendar. I also love the ability to automate the tasks and to make recurring tasks. It’s so neat too that the tasks just move automatically if it doesn’t get done. I don’t miss that part which I would need to do with paper planners (rewriting, erasing, or moving things to the next day). The ability to toggle between day, week, and month, and List tabs are wonderful too! Katy Allen and the developers are amazing and are constantly adding features and they listen to our feedback. Definitely worth the subscription!
Digital planner that puts an end to calendar surfing!
by Britt.P. on 2021/01/16 01:57
I am a Director for a not for profit organization and my plate is full with meetings and tasks. Not to mention I have a family and two children at home. In order to navigate all of my life, work, home and the school or extracurricular events, we operated on many calendars. And I hate manual planners because of the constant maintenance or husband’s refusal to look in them. In order for me to schedule one thing, I used to review 4-5 calendars just to ensure I could make an appointment. With Artful Agenda, I found the first digital planner that allows me to integrate not only all of my calendars in one place but my Todoist tasks that I live by. I can add an event to the agenda and it will populate to the calendar I set it to and vice versa. Scheduling a meeting or appointment takes seconds vs. the awkward, “give me a minute to check all my calendars” speech. I would recommend anyone in need of a productivity or multi-tasking upgrade. Or just get it to keep you sane! I’ve been using this app, which is also friendly on different interfaces, I.e. desktop and tablet, since September of 2020 and have recommended to all of my team members. Happy Planning!
So far, so good.
by WildFlower01 on 2021/09/25 14:11
I’m still in the trial phase, but so far I’m liking it! I’m very new to the digital planner world. This is the second digital planner I’ve tried. I almost quit after trying the first digital planner, so I’m glad I found this one. It is so easy to figure out, especially with the tutorials. It’s like using my old paper planner! I especially love how it can sync between my iPad and iPhone, so I always have it with me! I also love how easy it is to sync my Google and iCloud calendars and I didn’t have to transfer everything over manually. It would be nice to have a bill tracker tab and more sticker options or the option to import stickers from other sources. But, those aren’t deal breakers, I would definitely recommend this app.
Love the functionality
by Dvjvbvc on 2021/08/23 21:37
I was an Artful Agenda user about two years ago, but it didn’t have all the functionality of my paper planner at the time so I never used it much. However, I’m LOVING 💜 the new updates and the ability to use my Apple Pencil with Scribble function. I’ve already started more efficiently planning things like my weekly cleaning tasks, etc. and the fact it syncs with my google and iOS calendar makes it a breeze to use with my existing calendars that my whole family uses. I would like for a future update to include a separate notes tab (in addition to the already awesome tasks tab) with ability to file notes in folders or “notebooks” to make it even more functional for use throughout the day.
Satisfies the boss girl in me
by Snow Wight on 2020/12/01 11:48
I was a paper planner user for years. And only recently gave up my paper planner for digital planning. I was using GoodNotes but seem like I was spending a lot of time setting up my day today task. And aren’t we using a planner to save us time?I was so happy to find this app. It lets me look at my whole day appointments alongside of my tasks and prioritize them. I’m also a big list maker so the list function really is satisfying for my 0CD. The stickers are a lot of fun so that speaks to the 12 year old girl and me. LOL they are a little cumbersome as they do not convey position from one platform to another. But I feel that that will be addressed very shortly by the developer. I feel like I’m on the ground floor of something that’s good and will soon be great.
Perfect Planner for the OCD
by KayBush on 2020/05/11 15:53
I’ve been dreaming of a calendar that I can sync with my already created apple calendar that has the ability for an advanced weekly and daily view. LOVE THIS AGENDA. I have it on my phone, iPad and computer and can access it anywhere and as a business manager it has been a LIFE SAVER. I am so pleased with this app. I love physical planners because of how customizable they are but hated the constant erasing / white out, plus having to carry it. The other digital planners were either too much and had way to many options that just made them seem too busy or I couldn’t personalize them enough. But the syncing with my already made calendars that this app does just takes the dang cake and puts it way above all the rest.
Exceeded expectations!
by lunch_lady_love on 2021/07/12 23:30
I’ve been using this planner regularly for 7 months now. I had tried Google, Apple, Outlook and I hated looking at my calendar and now I know why: it held all the things I DO, but not an ounce of who I AM. Artful Agenda helps me express myself and stay inspired as I plan. I was expecting and willing to take on some glitches or inconveniences considering the start up vibes but that’s not been the case! It’s been extremely reliable both on desktop and mobile and seamlessly syncs my google calendar where I receive standard invites. It’s also filled with features I actually use regularly. I’m so grateful to have found this! It’s made a world of difference in my energy around to-do’s! Thank you to the creators and maintainers!!
Planner Nerd Finds a Home
by dje303 on 2021/09/22 21:48
Paper is so hard for me to give up. I love writing in a journal or planner but then I get lost or don’t have space to haul all my planning notebooks around. So as a business women digital is how I need to live my life. A planner just has to sync to my calendars and then allow me to plan task, quick to dosa and quick notes and tracking around that synced calendar. I am fully enjoying and tweaking how I use Artful Agenda. There’s the best of both worlds here! No more digital downloads that I have to write everything in daily - but I have the freedom with my iPad to take notes or write a quick to do list just like those left behind planning not booked or digital planners. THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER I’ve been waiting on for years!!
Nice! But please do some UX testing
by kimurphy on 2020/02/11 17:56
First off, I’ve been hoping that an app that truly merges paper and digital would come along! I’m excited to see where this goes. But I think this needs user testing and some work. I see a lot of improvements that can be made that would make this app more user friendly. Example- day view needs an indicator of what time it is/where you’re at in the day. Sticker use on both the app and desktop are clunky and require user to figure out how to use it. Other thoughts- I definitely would need push notifications, like they plan on implementing in future releases. I would love to see the water portion customizable. This is not useful for everyone, yet it’s prominent and is noise/wasted space for those whose don’t use it. Maybe make it a customizable tracker, or add the option to hide that feature.
Made for me!
by KayGrov on 2020/07/26 13:48
So far this agenda has been life changing!! I was struggling to manage my time as a mom, wife and newly promoted Team Leader with Usborne Books and more! It is simply amazing! Being able to have separate colors and list for my recruits, personal business, home life, all in one handy and beautifully made agenda!! I love the option of the stickers as well! I have purchased a large agenda with tons of stickers and colorful pens every year for so long, all for it to go to waste half way through the year. But with Artful Agenda I believe this will be my most organized and accomplished year. Thank you again!!!!! P.S. today it asked me when I have time set aside for myself! 😱 LOOOVE this! I ALWAYS forget to do that. You’re an angel! Thank you!!
Digital Planner Perfection
by allyrod08 on 2021/09/22 00:49
Artful Agenda has been a lifesaver! I love the stickers, and creativity that comes with a paper planner, but they have just been unsustainable for the day-to-day reality of life. Artful Agenda has been the perfect transition from paper planner to digital planner, and has been 100% sustainable for me. I love being able to integrate multiple email accounts, because I can see an overview of both my personal day, kids' day, and work day in one spot. This has been so helpful in scheduling appointments for my children (no longer toggling between all the calendars). I love the sticker packs, color coding, and customizable note sections in Artful Agenda. It allows for recurring tasks (no more writing "Trash Day" in my paper planner every week). The Lists section has also been a very nice feature. Highly recommend Artful Agenda! I'm able to efficiently track my personal life, my children's schedules and due dates, significant dates/things for my husband, our home, and my blog work all in one place. Love the app, the Facebook group, and the work that is being done to constantly improve the user experience.
Love the app

I replaced a paper Erin Condren planner with this app on my iPad. It does everything the paper one did and more, plus I don’t have to lug a book and pens around. I like that it syncs with my phone so I can jot an appointment down at doctor’s office and it carries over. Having the option to pick and change covers, handwriting styles, colors, and to use stickers satisfies my need to be creative and doodle like I did with the paper planner. My only suggestion is regarding the stickers. They look great when I put them into the pages on my iPad. But when I look at the app on my iPhone, the stickers are disproportionately large and not centered how I had them. Also I would like more covers and handwriting styles someday.
Best Decision!

I have used a paper planner for about 25 years. Every year I spend a good amount of money on the perfect planner! This year I decided to TRY the digital planner from Artful! I did the 2 week trial and OMGGGGGG! I was so impressed; the automatic calendar transfers, the covers, THE STICKERS, how easy it is to use, the layout. It was just incredible. And no more carrying around a book that doesn’t fit in my purse! I can’t lie! It was very hard to switch from paper to digital but it took me those 2 weeks to do it and it was well worth it. My favorite is seeing it on my laptop. I promise this will be the best change you could make to organize and plan your daily/monthly/yearly life events with. Angie! 🤍 a very happy customer 🤍
Wonderful Digital calendar
by MEG224* on 2021/08/24 11:17
Use to be a paper calendar gal. 11 months into trying A/A and I love it! Many features that I am still learning how to use but I love the fact you can access over all devices. Just started using Apple Pencil to write on the calendar which is so cool. My favorite feature is you can list tasks in the task area in the day view and can easily complete said task and check off or schedule the task for a later date. Lots of other things one can do that I am still learning but I definitely feel more organized. The support group is awesome as well. Plus the customization with different covers and colors! Highly recommend Artful Agenda
Paper to Digital User
by Happycamping on 2021/08/24 15:12
I was a paper planner user for years. I tried multiple times to just go to apple calendar and it just didn’t give me the same satisfaction. I have been a AA user for about a year now and I love it. I do not use it to its fullest that is for sure. I love how the creator always listens to feedback and implements as much as she can as quickly as she can! That is a great developer right there! Highly recommend using AA. I personally have work, family, marching band, school, and kids calendars all in one place in different colors. When I add it to my family calendar in AA, it automatically goes to my apple calendar and goes to my shared family members. It’s wonderful.
The Silver Bullet
by WriterChristine on 2020/12/01 18:39
I’ve been searching for the perfect planner since the days of my first Palm Pilot. Paper planners are beautiful and inviting but there’s too much duplication of effort, copying things among the different views. And when I leave it at home...stuff just falls through the cracks. Electronic planners are always with me but they look like they were designed for function over form, and it felt like I was working for the planner instead of it working for me. Then I found Artful Agenda. All the beauty and attraction of a fun, create paper environment and all the functionality of a robust electronic planner tool. And it was fast and easy to get started with its seamless integration with my many Google calendars. 100% worth it.
The perfect planner!
by DrivenByJava on 2020/11/30 23:09
I have tried pretty much every planner out there, both pre made ones and bullet journaling. I used them all for a little while and them fell out of the habit on all of them. I finally realized it was because I needed sort of a hybrid planner. One that works digitally and syncs with my calendars, and one that gives me some creativity and lets me customize it. Artful Agenda is the perfect combination for me and is exactly what I needed but could never put my finger on. It is digital and syncs with my calendars, I don’t have to carry around a bulky planner with me, and I can customize it and make it my style. I think I have finally found the perfect planner and I am beyond happy (and focused)!
The answer to my digital calendar prayers 😆
by missmandiel on 2020/12/01 13:57
I am in love with this app. I have always used paper planners because I’m a very visual person and need that “pretty” factor. However, I always find myself abandoning my paper planners because I am a digital girl living in a digital world. Using Google calendar always just ends up being so much easier and feasible when on the go, rather than flipping through a planner to write something down. I just hated how blah and lacking in other life planner features it was. Artful Agenda gave me exactly what I needed— the beauty and features of a paper planner, in digital form. Katy and her team work endlessly to give users exactly what we ask for and the price point is most definitely fair for all it provides. I’m hopeful for an ability to add our own covers and fonts and integrate with other apps (maybe through Zapier) in the future. Also, they have an amazing FB community full of updates, offers, and other users sharing ideas. I highly recommend and stand by this app for visual planner users looking to go fully digital!!
Love the concept, needs work though
by angiebabybotch on 2019/10/25 22:10
I love the idea of having my planner on my phone and computer. I typically buy super expensive planners but then forget to write in it. It’s also hard to keep up with putting work schedules in it, as I have constant appointments and meetings already in my gmail work calendar. I love that it can sync up with all of my calendars. I don’t love that it consistently has soooo many errors. Even when I choose specific colors for my appointments, it will send an error message. It doesn’t have enough personalization options in my opinion. It also doesn’t have 30 minute time slots, which throws off my day to day tasks. I’m still on the 2 week trial and it’s ok. Not personalized or user friendly enough for me to pay for it monthly. Hopefully they add and fix some things because I love the idea.
The perfect digital planner!

I have been a paper planner gal for a long time, but I was getting so tired of writing the same things over and over each year (birthdays and anniversaries). Plus, with my oldest in school, a planner for the year wasn’t aligning with her school calendar. I finally made the decision to give Artful Agenda a try, and I love it! It’s so convenient to have everything I need on the go, color coordinated, and to have those annual events fill themselves in without me having to spend time doing it over and over again. Plus, the lists feature is amazing, and I feel so accomplished when I can check items off and see my progress!
Best of both worlds!
by Jasmine Piotrkowski on 2020/09/04 09:57
I absolutely love this app! I really enjoy paper planners but had to also keep my iCloud/Google calendars up to date for my husband and son, which was annoying and always caused me to stop using my beautiful paper planners. This gives me the best of both worlds and I recommend it to everyone I know! I love the addition of repeating tasks and the rollover feature for unfinished ones, I’ve been waiting for them for ages!!!! The only features I would really like to see added are an Apple Watch app, the ability to upload custom images for the cover and stickers, and a search function like you get in other digital calendars.
Helps me keep my life in order
by Emmyboop on 2020/12/04 15:21
As a (pre-pandemic) homeschooler, full-time homemaker I have tried many planners to help me keep track of not only school and home task, but bills, doctors appts etc. I tried multiple paper planners, but eventually gave them all up because it was easier to just make a note in my phone than use a planner the size of a phone book. Artful Agenda gives me the functionality of my full-size planner with the pretty covers and stickers I love, and the ability to have my entire planner at my fingertips when I’m out and about. I’ve been using Artful Agenda for almost a year now and will definitely renew when the time comes.
Not for me
by Lesley McCarthy on 2021/07/29 17:36
I am unable to edit my previous one star review, so I wanted to make sure to compliment the customer service I received from Megan. I deleted the app the day I downloaded it due to it not working correctly and lack of customization options. I also could not sync it with my work calendar. My card was charged although I had deleted the app and the subscription. I contacted the company via email when I saw the charge. I’m not sure I sent the email to the correct email address. However, when Megan replied, she was very friendly and helpful. I got a refund, and she has been wonderful assisting me with the process. I updated my review to three stars because although the app was not the best fit for me, I was VERY pleased with the service I received.
So organized!

I’ve struggled to find the perfect planner for years, but every planner always seemed to be missing something. This one has it all. It pulls in all your calendars, plus integrates between laptop, ipad and phone. The ability to add stickers and change covers also allows you to personalize it, and change with the season (or your mood). And the water tracker app, and meal planning window is also very handy. And the list feature is amazing. You can actually type notes and embed to do items in it, and link it to your calendar! Plus, this app has a great Facebook support community that shares ideas. Love love love it!
