Calengoo


Life can get a little hectic, and for a gal dealing with fibro fog on a daily basis, I tend to forget important tasks. Seriously. My Mom and I joke that we are a couple of fish, because they have about a five second memory. Whenever we remember something we yell "fish!" If it weren't for my phone, I wouldn't know what day it was.

I've always been drawn to planners. The pretty stationary, the organized sleeves, the fancy pens, and the colorful tabs... Yeah, I have a slight problem with office supplies.

The only problem is either I don't have room in my purse/ huge bag, or like my journal, I just don't stay devoted to it. Folks spend hours keeping up with their perfect little planners. I don't have that much time to invest.

Then I got my Ellipses 7 from Verizon for Christmas. I searched the web and the Google PlayStore looking for something that would work like a FiloFax. I played with a dozen different apps. Finally I stumbled on a blog post about Calengoo. It was basically a FiloFax in app form!


Calengoo's number one feature in my book is that it syncs with your Google Calendar. I can easily add new events and tasks via the PC and it is instantly updated to my tablet, which I never go anywhere without. I have several calendars set up in my Google account for all the different aspects of my life. I have one for keeping track of my word counts/page counts/writing, I have one for house chores, one for appointments, and one for family events.


Another useful tool in the arsenal is the Task lists. I love to-do lists. Every morning I get up and plan my day. I don't like wasted time. Calengoo allows you to make several lists complete with check boxes, because who doesn't like checking things off the lists? Hooray productivity!


With Calengoo you can plan your day down to the very last second! And did I mention the widgets? Awesome!

After only a few weeks with this Bad-A little app, I'm totally in love. It's certainly moved to my top 5 can't live without apps.

It's available on itunes and Play Store, so head on over and give it a try.
