For the last year, the calendar market has been a bit flat. We saw a significant rise in calendar use with Woven, but the news came thick and fast of their exit and acquisition by Slack Technologies this last month.
What should the average calendar user expect from the future releases in the market? I’ve got my eye on 3 calendar potentials for the next year to be the leap forward we need in the calendar market.
Sadly this year, we’ve lost a calendar application from our original list — Woven, which recently was purchased by Slack.
So, we’re still working out the best all-rounder in the market available on most devices, so stay tuned to our YouTube & Medium.
Fantastical offers a well rounded application — available on iOS and Mac, presenting features like weather management, great calendar management and different views (2-week, day, agenda) etc.
The best all-rounder, available on iOS, Android and web. It comes with all you need as a starter kit…
They’ve introduced a better way of working for those working from home, struggling to balance notifications on the phone when in a work/life setting.
With the new iOS 15 update, they’ve introduced “Focus” — a new way to set your iPhone/iPad and MacOS device to be better suited to your needs.
These new changes are a great step forward for iOS 15 users to personalised work/life management that isn’t a headache.
Evernote is slowly becoming a more customised experience for its big community of users. With the new Home and better mobile and desktop applications, there are ways to further improve your Evernote experience with small add-ons and tweaks to better work.
Fundamentally I use Notion for work only. Back in late 2020, I decided to consolidate most of my personal notes and documents into Evernote — in which I’ve been using for 8+ years now just to tidy up my use cases.
However, I still steam ahead with Notion as a workplace for managing content, upcoming product/course launches and collaborating with editors, both blog and videos easily.

First off, we use Notion for Keep Productive — our website, YouTube and courses. …
Understanding how to best work from home is difficult, I remember the first few months of working 50% remotely for a company and 50% freelancing. It was difficult, and that’s when we could go outside.
It requires balance, conversations and constant adapting to your routine and improving elements where you can for ultimate personal productivity at home. Even today, I continue to find time, effort and health tweaks whilst working from home and the changes always lead to overall better work.
I’ve pulled together 5 personal productivity recommendations that I think would benefit most, from my own personal experiences working…
The long-time calendar application loved by many is now closing its doors after being purchased by Slack in April 2021.
Fantastical is probably one of the better all-rounders, but sadly comes on iOS and Mac exclusively. Fantastical provides a stunning calendar, with some template abilities for repeat events but no scheduling functions.
Priced at $39.99 a year, with some free access
A new entrant is Morgen Calendar, a spinoff from a Zurich based university comes with some hype. …
I’ve been into Medium writing for maybe 3 years now, catching the train early on Medium and enjoying the way that they organically distribute their articles, much like YouTube.
This time last year, I switched on their Medium Partner Program — with not much expectations. I’m a great writer, I only write 1–2 a month on Medium and despite trying, don’t write much past 4–5 minute read time.
☕️ Note: I start with 12K followers, around 25K monthly visits
Switching on Medium Partner Program — was fairly decent to begin with.
The first 3 months, I went from $126 to…
Long gone are the days that you can get most productivity software for a mere $30 a year at premium pricing, there are hundreds of different plans, options and now tools alike.
But a new market screams to be unlock by the world of business professionals for a high standard, high price productivity tool to meet their needs.
When we speak high-end, our criteria is simply anything above $15+ per month and with a high-standard of development/design.
Yes, there are already options out there waiting to be explored.
New entrance like Obsidian, Mem and more joining the space — and folks like Craft, Supernotes and Walling all turning heads.
One of the new more traditional tools on the market, AmpleNote looks very much similar to Evernote from a glance, but packs away bi-directional linking and a “task score” ability that helps you rank the importance of your tasks.
Probably one of the faster growing personal note-taking tools is Craft. Craft allows you to take collaborative documents, with cards being the killer feature. …
