We just downloaded the Planner for iPad 2 app. This iPad app gives you a traditional weekly agenda and todo list on the same viewing page. In landscape orientation on the ipad it places the calendar on the left, a list of tasks on the right side of the page view.
Planner for iPad 2 integrates the built-in Calendar iPad app to provide event alerts on the default iPad calendar. Although the calendar claims you can manage your life from this ipad app we only see this a sligh add on improvement to the pre-installed iPad calendar. One big negative it that this iPad app doesn’t import your system calendar events and doesn’t support repeating events.
The layout view here in this app is very popular in many bound paper planners like Daytimer and Franklin Covey. It’s a comfortable way to stay organized. The tasks stay put no matter what week it is, and you can cycle between your current, someday, and completed tasks. The Quick entry feature lets you only just type a word or two to create an event or a task which is a nice feature.
This iPad app Planner doesn’t have a lot of task categories, tags, a half dozen status lists, and mandatory workflows. It is a simpler version with a nice layout view.
We think this may be the new Apple iPad 2 commercial for TV. We did not yet see it on major network tv but found it only on YouTube.
Need to add an iPad stand to your collection of iPad accessories? The Targus 360° Rotating iPad 2 Stand come with a nice and different iPad stand design that offers a 360° swivel that allows the iPad 2 to quickly reorient it’s views in portrait or landscape display orientation. We’ve seen some other swiveling iPad stands but this Targus 360° is well designed and noticably thinner that most other iPad stands. The center of the swivel mechanism reveals the Apple logo is clearly visible. We like the a soft lining that protects the iPad 2 screen. The outside of this iPad stand and case is a very attractive black faux leather . This is available cheaper at Amazon versus the Targus site which is retail at US$59.99.
