So Close to Being Great!
I love “pod” quite a bit. It’s simplicity, ease of use and intelligent design makes this app quite nice. It is really visually intuitive and appealing.
However- there are glitches. The “keep in touch with the people you meet” part of the app doesn’t work. You can link contacts and add participants but you cannot do what the preview slide suggests. Pressing on a linked or added contact does nothing.
I also don’t understand why there are two calendar symbols in agenda view. One is top right the other is bottom left. They both take you to “Today”.
Finally, it would be nice if we were able to link not just contacts with email addresses but those with phone numbers to events. And, in the contacts section it would make sense if we were able to access all contact information. Also- linking event address/location search to our contact list would be a great addition as well.
Seems like a good calendar app, I’m mostly looking for a way to copy specific events to specific days of the week over a period of time. Like my class schedule doesn’t change for months but I don’t want to type it in over and over, same thing with my work schedule. Having that feature would be convenient because even though it doesn’t change it helps to visualize what I have going on when I have to schedule in other things. If I’m missing the way to do that my bad.
Good app overall, this was my only hang up.
Edit: Didn’t even think about using the repeat event every week option, oops! Thank you for the response, this will be my dedicated calendar now. A suggestion: let us set a specific date to repeat the event up until a certain date i.e. make it end the last day of classes.
Developer Response ,
Great feedback. We're thinking a lot about how to make copying events really easy. Stay tuned!
One approach right now might be to do "repeating" events - when if you have a class every Monday at 10am, you can set up the event to "recur." Sometimes it is easiest to set all this up in your Desktop calendar app (Google Calendar, etc), but once you do Pod will display it. If you use Google Calendar on the web, here is their article on how to do that: https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/37115?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en
I replaced my iPhone’s default calendar with this one. I really do like it. I wish there were more color themes cause I love using a calendar and would like to be able to customize it more, but my biggest complaint is that there’s not an option to gray out past dates/fade past events. It makes my calendar look hectic through the whole month. If past dates could show differently, that would be excellent.
One other thing I wish is that I could see 1 month at a time instead of seeing dates from former and future months. At a glance, looking at the calendar, it’s hard for me to immediately settle on the current date since everything is just right there in your face. These are little things though, as far as functionality goes, it’s just what I need.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
