If you’re like us, work life and personal life is starting to merge. Managing meetings, notes, next steps, projects, tasks, reminders in multiple apps, sites, or tools - can be pretty hard - but it doesn’t have to be! With NotePlan for the Mac and iOS, you can manage your calendar, notes, and tasks in one place. Instead of constantly context switching, you can stay focused and accomplish what you set your mind to.

We recommend starting by getting everything out of your head and captured in one place - such as a “Planning” note. After gathering your thoughts, NotePlan allows you to seamlessly translate items into tasks. Set dates to these tasks, such as “tomorrow” or a specific day of the week.

By integrating with Apple’s Calendar and Reminders, NotePlan can show you your meetings and events next to the tasks you set. Weekly or Monthly calendar view gives you a quick snapshot of what is scheduled, and where you may have gaps in your day so you can quickly schedule additional things to accomplish.

Reviewing and managing open tasks and deadlines is incredibly easy. On top of that, notes are perfect for brainstorming, saving links, taking meeting notes, or storing reference materials. NotePlan is highly-customizable too with handsome light and dark themes as well as tagging for organizing and wiki-style linking between notes.


If you have any questions, suggestions or problems, please contact us. We provide fast and professional support:

Has changed my workflow for the better

I recently migrated to NotePlan from Things 3 and GoodNotes, following a review of the app on The Sweet Setup, and I am so thankful. This app has streamlined my weekly planning, daily work, and review processes. It keeps all of my needed materials together in one place: Notes for my thoughts and big-picture plans, tasks in a bullet-journal style system that doesn’t overwhelm with too much information, and basic calendar/Reminders integration to see what’s happening day-to-day and form a plan of attack.

The biggest learning curve was how to negotiate the limitations of Apple’s Reminders app. Coming from Things 3 I was used to all sorts of customizations, nested events, start times and deadlines . . . Reminders is so bare by comparison. But since NotePlan includes native tasks within its core interface, they do most of the big project-oriented stuff. I use NotePlan’s notes and tasks to plan out and track my progress on bigger projects. I use Reminders for the recurring activities I know will happen regularly (take out the trash) or important time-sensitive tasks that I want my Apple Watch to buzz me about (post that assignment).

As a great side benefit, NotePlan comes from one of the most active and responsive developers I’ve experienced. NotePlan 2 was already enough to change my habits for the better, but as a beta tester I can say that NotePlan 3 will be even more impactful.

Version 2.0 is excellent

As a person who is always looking for a better way to keep up with all the stuff I have to do, I have tried most to-do apps. The simplicity of NotePlan’s approach makes it the winner in this category for me. There’s something about having an official, discrete note for each day that just clicks with me. The manual act of rescheduling items is an automatic opportunity to re-evaluate what’s really important and decide when I actually intend to tackle each task. I can include as many or as few details as I care to when I enter an item since it’s all just plain text. The app automates enough of the process to be a help, but it doesn’t force me to use it in any particular way. It’s very flexible.

Version 2.0 is a great improvement. The interface is smooth and snappy and the themes look great. I like the way the Markdown in the actual notes is rendered in the agenda view. It perfectly blends the simplicity of Markdown with the polish and visual appeal of a more formatted presentation. I can write my notes any way I care to, and then NotePlan makes them look nice when I just need to quickly review my daily list or check off an item.

The developer is very responsive and has put a lot of thought into the UI/UX. Because of his commitment, I expect NotePlan to get even better in the future. But v2.0 is already a great step in the right direction.

The only scheduling app I've ever kept using

There is something very nice about a keyboard-centric calendar that has a simple but effective design. The syncing is cool, and I like that I can see my iCal events.
Press and hold the Command key to learn the shortcuts.
One particularly nice one is Cmd+Shift+D for scheduling a task. I wish it were possible in the scheduling screen to type the date, but so many other features can be accessed solely via the keyboard.
Another good shortcut: Cmd+E to add an event. This one also leads to a screen optimized for touch. When trying to Tab through the event-entry, you will get stuck in the location field. Again, small, but I know that some users are looking for an app that they run solely from their keyboard without turning on accessibility mode.
The developer is also quick to respond and seems to regularly update both the iOS and Mac version.
