VigCal – Stay Organized and Get Things Done!

Life is too short to waste time trying to figure out what you need to do, what you’ve completed already, and where you need to be. We all have so much going on that sometimes it gets really difficult to keep up.

What helps is an app that keeps you on track. Download VigCal now if you need that help. It’s loaded with features that make it easy to put your life in order. Not only can you organize your work items, it can help you organize your family!

After downloading the app you will see a calendar, pretty similar to others you’ve seen. At the very top of the screen, you’ll see today’s date and five icons:

  • Actions – This takes you to the Actions screen which provides access to the Settings icon and allows you to sort your calendar view by setting different options. From the Settings icon, you can choose a myriad of options ranging from font size to creating different calendars. It is from here that you can make the in app purchase for the full version, which costs $9.99.
  • Location Settings – this shows your events and to-do items on a map, if you have provided that information
  • Search – if you cannot find a task or event, you can search for it
  • Add New Event – create new events or tasks

The app visuals are really what got me hooked. The interface is clean and easy to use and organization of different types of tasks is inherent as you can set different colors for different calendars – one for personal tasks and appointments, one for work, one for the family, one for your spouse’s items, and more.

You can combine the different calendars so you can see at a glance everything that is going on and coordinate easily, or choose which calendars you wish to view.

A separation screen allows you to see where your downtime is, so you can schedule in some “me” time, or shift things around if needed.

What is really neat about VigCal is that you can set the start of your week using whatever day works for you. Some folks’ week starts on Sunday, while others’ start on Monday.

The Search tool is really nice, because it allows you to find an event. This may be a meeting or birthdays. Imagine being able to search for the word “birthday”, and containing it to just the month of October. It will allow you to find all the people for whom you need to by cards for in that month.

Connectivity is another great feature. If you have an Apple Watch, you can view tasks and reminders on your watch and confirm them. The app also coordinates cleanly with Google Calendar, iOS Reminders, and Toodledo.

The only downside to the app is that you need to make the full app purchase if you wish to have the Settings option, which allows you to choose the start day for your week, and many other neat options.

If you are ok with making that in app purchase, then VigCal is a definite download. You will wonder how you were getting things done and managing your time before you used the app.
