Posted By Tucker On June 17, 2013 @ 8:40 AM In iOS | No Comments
Sticking to a schedule can be tricky. Unfortunately, navigating the ins and outs of a new scheduling app can be just as complicated. As much as they promise to make your life easier, a lot of the UIs in scheduling apps are kind of a mess. Thankfully, some scheduling apps are actually pretty easy to get around. One such app is InFocus Checklist, developed by Elixir Software Group.
InFocus Checklist is a simple app that helps you manage your schedule.
The UI here is quite serviceable, and with controls that make sense. Drag down with one finger to add text in a new cell, or do a long hold to drag items around. In Calendar view, tap the event to see a pop-up window with the full list of event details. Overall, InFocus is quite a simple little tool, and it is very simple to get your bearings.
One thing I love about this app is the text-to-voice feature. Powered by iSpeech, the quality of the speaker’s voice is very good. It’s clear, easy to understand, and it is a great way to get a rundown of your schedule while you’re behind the wheel of a car and want to keep your eyes on the road.
I was actually impressed with how well the handwriting input works in this app. Even without a stylus, handwriting is smooth, legible, and (believe it or not) pleasurable. Writing in this app is a dream. I do wish you could write more than three lines, however. Overall, this is one of the best input systems for handwriting I’ve played with.
InFocus Checklist offers a calendar with List, Day, Week, or Month views to help you get the big picture, or narrow your focus. Still can’t find what you’re looking for? There’s a fast, accurate, and robust search engine that lets you find scheduled items or reminders by keyword. There isn’t a feature to search for specific date ranges, however.
If you want a scheduling tool that talks to you, makes your life easier, and is simple to navigate, InFocus Checklist is worth checking out. If you love a bargain, you can get excited that InFocus Checklist is currently free at the time of this writing — it is normally $1.99. This is a simple, straightforward app that can help you feel more in control of your day-to-day life.
Note: This app is free for a limited time at the time of this writing
