Download Daily Notes Planner for Mac in the Mac App Store and start syncing your notes between your iPhone and MacBook!

As a much simpler calendar app than the built-in iCalendar app, Daily Notes Planner allows you to type in plain-text-notes for every date (no complicated hourly scheduling or reminders here). Because notes are organized by date, you will know exactly where to look for when you reference them later. Tap on the date in the calendar to go into that date and record or reference notes. The dates with notes are highlighted in the calendar.

Tapping onto the search bar will immediately list all of your notes chronologically with today's note right in front of you and with older notes above and newer notes below it. Search term will be highlighted as you search.

Use iCloud to sync your notes between multiple devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac, MacBook ...) and apps (Daily Notes Planner 1 & 2). All you need to do is to SAVE your notes in a device/app and LOAD them in another device/app in the app's iCloud page (under "Extras").

Reference today's notes in the not editable textview below the calendar without worrying that you would accidentally change it from frequent referencing. If you have a lengthy today's notes, you can minimize the calendar to a weekly mode by scrolling on it.


In addition to organizing your notes by dates, use three additional notes formats to completely satisfy all of your note taking needs! There are three large buttons in the top of the "EXTRAS" Page that directs you to 3 mini apps: "One Page Note", "Folder Notes", and "Weekly Schedule". Daily Notes Planner app can store all of your life's notes.

"One Page Note" has just one page of note. If you need to jot something and don't want to save it permanently, this is a good place to put it. You can clear the page easily, and you can also export the page to be saved into a folder in Folder Notes.

"Folder Notes" organizes your notes with folders and files. Create folders and note files inside them. Search folders and files with search bars. You can change color of texts in your notes dynamically easily: simply tap onto a color on top of the keyboard and type - the blinker color indicates the current color. Also, you can long press any file or folder row to change its name. Also you can press "edit" button in the bottom to delete or rearrange rows.

"Weekly Schedule Notes" allows you to draw a nice, colorful chart of your schedule, classes, or weekly appointments. Tap onto an item to type in notes for it. Here you can also change color of texts in your notes dynamically too.

Ask Siri to add notes to a date. "Add note using Daily Notes/Daily Notes 2/Daily Notes Planner app. When Siri asks what to call your note or which one to edit, say a date like "this/last Monday/Tuesday/etc" or "July 1st (year is optional)" or "next week/month".

Ask Siri to search notes in any time range. When prompted "what time?", you can specify any date range.

A hidden tip: you can do a quick swipe gesture to move left and right of the days anywhere on the detail page from the calendar view (also tap or slide the the dates on the top). Also you can long press "Password & Touch ID On/Off" in the Settings to change your password.

App only uses internet connection when you press SAVE or LOAD in the iCloud page to sync data. Other than that it doesn't use the internet at all. All holidays calculations rely on sophisticated astronomical models and other calculations, all done very efficiently within the app.

Supports Apple's Handoff feature to help you to sync your notes via iCloud among multiple devices. Whenever you save your notes to iCloud in one device, all other nearby devices would prompt you to load your latest notes from iCloud either in app switcher / multitasking screen (iOS) or in the dock (Mac).

What’s New

Version 8.4

- Now with Siri integration! You can now talk to Siri to append/create notes to calendar dates (only supported in English/British English) or search your calendar notes with any time range (supported in any device languages). You cannot delete or override existing notes with Siri, and this is to prevent accidental deletes. You can only add/append additional texts after two new lines per each add to each date using Siri.
- Ask Siri to add notes to a date: "Add note using Daily Notes/Daily Notes 2/Daily Notes Planner app". When Siri asks what to call your note or which one to edit, tell it a date like "this/last Monday/Tuesday/etc" or "July 1st (year is optional)" or "next week/month". The names/titles of your calendar notes are dates! Due to technology limitations, you cannot do very complex date queries here like 3 days from today, 15 days from tomorrow, etc. (follow the modal examples above instead).
- Ask Siri to search notes in any time range: "Search notes using Daily Notes/Daily Notes 2/Daily Notes Planner app". When prompted "what time?", you can specify any date range. Siri is going to ask "what time" here, but you have to answer "which date" instead since our notes are based on dates.
- Siri will give you good/satisfying UI/feedbacks after each notes addition or search! You can use Siri anytime among which are when the app is opened, shut down, or in background.
- iOS 14 home widgets and Today's widgets (for prior iOS 14) optimizations and bug fixes.

Gives technology to palm of your hand

I have been using this app for a few years now, and this app has become an exquisite notes app that has empowered me with technology of my iPhone and my MacBook. The plain and simple endeavor of typing notes into dates into Calendar to plan things for days ahead or write down journal of what happened that day has allowed me to save important information that I can reference anytime! Finding the recipe for grilled chicken is as easy as typing “chicken” into the search bar or if you remembered which day you typed it into, I can just open that date. Because everything is text, it maintains little memory and notes are very easy to find. On my typical use, I would type in my notes using my MacBook and then sync it via iCloud so I can have my notes everywhere I go on my iPhone. Using both MacBook and the iPhone for this app is the Golden Armada. In addition, Folder Notes mini app inside Daily Notes Planner helped me write down tons of notes that are not related to calendar dates such as notes for data structure and algorithm, website credentials, and funny jokes! Daily Notes Planner is so valuable and has empowered me in my daily life. I recommend this app to anyone who needs a notes app that empowers the them without any annoyance or panache.

Very reliable and simple

I have been using this app to type in notes that I can reference them later and know exactly where they are, organized by dates. And it has been pleasure to use this app without putting any effort to learn how the app functions - it is no brain-er. I also put my passwords for my online accounts, and for example I can later search “Yahoo” and see what my Yahoo password is. It is very simple and useful and I recommend this app 👍

Love app

Great app and I really want to get it especially since they lowered the price. I love that they show current day notes when you go into the program. This was one of two apps that I was testing to find a daily note program.

Unfortunately, the other app won due to two reasons. This will no longer work on my iPad. I have older iPad with a 10 operating system since it updated it no longer works on my iPad. In addition, It does not use internal apple calendar

Even though I did not get it, it remains on my watch list. If the program I purchased does not perform any more, this will be the first one I will look at.

Developer Response ,

Daily Notes Planner 1 supports iOS 10 and below. This app, Daily Notes Planner 2, supports iOS 11 and above. And both apps support iPad and you can SAVE and LOAD from iCloud from Daily Notes Planner 1 and Daily notes Planner 2 and vice versa. Both of these versions can sync notes via iCloud to the Mac version of Daily Notes Planner; in the Mac, you can also export your notes as .csv files (tabular format) which can be opened/edited using Apple's Numbers app or Microsoft's Excel app. When you regularly back up your iPhone to iTunes, your notes will also be backed up with everything else on your iPhone.
