The success of our day is largely dependent on the quality of our planning. Not to miss out anything in their to-dos, some people prefer to make a list of upcoming tasks in a notebook, while others have long started using digital technology solutions.
Calendar applications are some of the main tools that are worth using to organize our life and plan your time carefully.
Many people have switched to specific tools; however, there are still some who do not use calendars on a daily basis. They may find some applications uncomfortable to use, non-functional, or expensive.
An in-app calendar is a feature that has become so familiar we hardly take notice. We see a calendar as an integral part of an application – something that should be there by default. However, getting this calendar into an app isn’t as easy as it sounds. No application has a calendar by default. But there are lots of apps that could really use one.
There’s something satisfying about making a plan and putting it in your calendar. The ability to conjure up a engagement, scribble it (or type, you know it’s 2018) into your calendar and slowly watch the days pass by until the event is exciting.
It’s clear that time dictates much of our lives. Whether it’s a tight work deadline, a countdown until a warranty expires, your mother’s birthday or simply when your next vacation is, we need somewhere to put all of these appointments.
In this tutorial, we’ll help you figure out whether you need a calendar integration in your app and, if so, how to build a calendar app or to implement a calendar into your software.
What apps need a calendar?
To begin, let’s understand what applications use calendars and what purposes you need calendar app development for. Calendars perform different tasks in different apps. But the main goal of a calendar is always the same – to help users manage their events and remember what they’ve planned.
Planners, productivity apps, and task managers
Slice Planner, a project by one of our clients, shows off an unusual calendar use case – translating handwritten plans to digital calendars (Google, Apple, and Outlook) with the help of computer vision and augmented reality.
