JotTheDate provides a creative and entertaining solution to the problem of mediocrity among calendars. Instead of having to type in each appointment by hand using the fiddly keyboards on the iPhone and iPad, JotTheDate allows you to draw straight onto the screen with your fingers.
Along with a choice of colours and brush sizes, this means you can personalise each date to suit your tastes; opting to draw, doodle, sketch or scribble out your various appointments and special dates, designing as you go a creative little system that lets you have fun while you plan.
The interface of the app is designed to make life a easy as possible for you; apart from the obvious speed benefits of being able to scribble something down on your screen, JotTheDate syncs with the iCloud and all your assorted Apple devices, including the Apple watch. It can be used offline, has a handy ‘flip’ function which allows you to skim rapidly through the calendar, and also has various view modes, so you can take in days, weeks, months or years. Combing practicality with a healthy dose of creativity, JotTheDate is sure to be a hit with creative types, people in touch with their inner kids, and those who want to bring a bit of levity to a hectic schedule.
