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 (iPhones, Android devices, iPads, Macs, and MacBooks) 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 via iCloud or aCloud. Use iCloud to sync notes to iOS, OS X devices, and use aCloud to sync notes to Android devices. Go to the Cloud menus on top of the screen to get started. aCloud is just as secure as iCloud; aCloud is end-to-end encrypted from the client-side using using 256bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and also encrypted again (your note's data is doubled encrypted for extra security) by Google in its Firebase server. For both iCloud and aCloud, only you can access your note's data. This is guaranteed.

You can also export/import your entire notes as CSV files; you can open exported CSV files to open them in Numbers or Excel and see them in a table with rows and columns where each row will represent each note's entry.

Supports Mojave Dark Mode that turns everything in the app darker.

Undo (Command + Z) and Redo (Command + Shift + Z) are supported. Every character you type, that note is immediately saved.

In the menu bar (very top bar of your screen), you can customize text color, font, and which national holidays to display in the app (you can display none too). Here you can also add bullets to your note and change font of texts in calendar too.

In addition to organizing your notes by dates, use two additional notes formats to completely satisfy all of your note taking needs!

"One Page Note" has just one page of note. If you need to jot down something quickly and don't want to save it permanently, this is a good place to put it.

"Folder Notes" organizes your notes with folders and files. Create folders and note files inside them. Here you can also search very easily and change color of texts in your notes dynamically. You can move location of files by clicking and drag-and-dropping them in up or down direction. Also you can move files into the folder by drag-and-dropping from right to left. Right click the a file or folder to either rename or delete it.

Nota Bene
*Changing font in top menu bar would change the font of all of your notes in Calendar, Folder, and One Page Notes.
*Changing text color in Calendar and One Page Notes would change the text color for these notes
*Since you can have attributed texts in Folder Notes, you can change text colors dynamically in Folder Notes. For example, change portion of your texts red and the others all dark blue! You would see the same formatted notes in your iOS version of Daily Notes Planner once you sync it to there.

You have to enable iCloud Drive in your Mac's Settings app in order to use iCloud Save & Load feature. If iCloud syncing isn't working, go to Settings app -> iCloud -> enable iCloud Drive. Also in this page go to "options.." under iCloud Drive, and enable iCloud for Daily Notes Planner. If iCloud Drive is not enabled, app will display an error message when you try to load or save to iCloud.

I find the app’s organizing of notes via a calender very useful. However, the synch capability is virtually useless. I purchased the app for my Mac and I purchased the IOS version for my iPad. i have repeadily tried to synch the two and nothing happens. It nowhere matches Evernote in terms of synch ease between devices. If you are using this app on just one device and do not need to it synch between them, then this app is very usefull in terms of organizing notes. If Evernote ever develops a calendar based option for organzing notes, i would cease using this app and not recommend Daily Notes Planner

I recently downloaded the revised versions of this app and sure enough, the developer fixed the bug preventing synching between devices. It is now very easy for me to synch my iphone and iPad with my Mac. One button does it, cann’t get any easier. I am very pleased with the promptness of the developer in fixing the problem. I particularly like this ap for keeping track of my assistant’s schedule and the ap’s ease of use allows us to change the schedule upon need and then synch up the devices so we are both on the literally on the same page. I now hightly recommend the ap and give it a 5 star rating.

Developer Response ,

There was a bug in Mac version of Daily Notes Planner in the newer MacOS operating system that would intermittently prevent you from saving your notes to iCloud. Apple must have changed something in the newer MacOS. I have seen this before, but it went away at the time, but today I fixed this bug for good, and once this update (version 6.0) that I submitted to Apple gets approved either today (May 5 2020) or tomorrow, syncing from Mac version of Daily Notes will work every time. iOS version has been saving and loading correctly. There should not be more bugs. Please contact me at inhoDeveloper@gmail.com for any more suggestions or concerns.

Excellent calendar note taking app

I don’t usually give out reviews but had to about this particular app. I needed a calendar app in which I could map out the events of my day quickly. Many apps require you to insert detailed information before its added to the schedule, which can be time consuming and just didn’t fit my needs. Since this app has a notepad assigned to a day on a calendar, I can freely write out the events, times and important facts of a day.

Another great feature of the app is its weekly view (on iPhone) I use it in conjunction with wunderlist when I want a visual display of my week. I look to see what are my important tasks coming up and type it into Daily notes planner. Since I’m able to link it to my iPhone via iCloud. I have instant access to the informaton. The daily planner app is simple but very useful. It can be used as scheduler, diary, or anything you want it to be. A+++ to the developer. I think you are onto something.

Great app for both my iphone and Mac

I use this app regularly to keep track of my to-do and important notes. I really like the design of the search bar, which allows me to see all the recents notes and search for a note with a certain keyword easily. With the iCloud sync, I can type (mainly copy paste) into the mac app and check it later on my iPhone. Plus, the app is very space efficient on both my mac and iPhone. I would recommend this app.
