days, the perfect complement to Calendar - Keep track of the most important dates in your life!
① If you’re tired of fishing through calendar apps to find important dates that you occasionally need, either from the distant past or the far off future, then days is for you!
② If you want to see clearly the events coming up in your calendars without being shown lots of empty white boxes with entries in text so tiny you can’t even read what’s there on a given day, then days is for you!
③ If you want to know how long it’s been since you left school / university, had your last hair cut, saw a doctor, had a vaccination, started your current job, left your previous job, when you bought your car, how old your dog / television / house is, then days is for you!
④ If you want to be reminded up to 99 days before your passport / drivers license expires, when your mortgage / loans run down, when your next medical appointment is, when you need to perform routine maintenance on your household devices, when you have to renew your subscriptions / contracts, how long to go before your vacation starts or you can retire, then days is for you!
⑤ If you want a single app that keeps track of ALL the most important dates in your life, and lets you manage these in a simple and clear UI, yet provides extensive categorisation, sorting, filtering, searching, and sharing capabilities, showing how old a past event is or a countdown to when a future event will occur, then days is for you!
Unlike most calendar apps which focus on events coming up in the near future, days has been designed to keep track of the most important dates in your life from the distant past to the distant future. It manages this by seamlessly combining calendar entries with its own database to store events outside of calendar. Use days to store distant past events such as your entire education, employment, medical history, and events off in the future like legal documents expiring, contracts running down, etc.
Use days own database to store events in three broad stores:
► Days Gone - Great for important dates you need to remember from the past: Medical Dates, Personal Dates, Project Milestones, Employment Dates, Education Dates, Equipment Age, Journal / Log Book
► Annual - Great for annually recurring events, just enter the details once and days will always remember: Birthdays, Anniversaries, Name days, Death dates, Public Holidays, Historic Events, National Celebrations
► Days To Go - Excellent as a to-do reminder store for keeping track of important dates coming up in the future: Warranties Expiring, Membership / Subscription Renewals, Contractual Dates, Legal Documents Expiring, Bank Cards Expiring, Project Deadlines, Appointments, House Chores, Equipment Maintenance, Vacations and important Life Events
► Universal app (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch) with iCloud synch and other sharing features to transfer events between all iOS devices.
► Local notification alerts, you choose which events you want to be alerted to and how many days before, up to 99 days for Days To Go and Annual events.
► Instant sorting by Days-to-Go / Gone / Alphabetical - How many calendar's let you sort events alphabetically?
► Instant filtering on multiple Categories / Calendars.
► Copy entries across the lists, and to and from Calendars.
► Powerful search feature with drill down filtering.
► Add unlimited notes to each event, which are also checked when searching.
► Built in date calculator.
► Preferences to control display behavior and set alert time.
► Change UI Theme Colors (Plain, Dark Blue, Light Blue)
All day’s events can be exported for backup, printing, importing, or sharing via the e-mail functions, and calendar events can be exported for printing via e-mail:
Note: Calendar events are integrated from 1 year back to 1 year forward.
What's New in Version 3.4.4
+ Subtle UI Changes
One of my very best apps
I am using this app with iOS 9.3 beta- still works great on my iPhone 6+
Worth much more-great design & function. Highly recommended after trying many other, similar apps. Easy to pull in events from the calendar. Calculates days to; days since, etc.. Very polished. Some programs give the hours and minutes in the calculation- which I find to be a nuisance. I put in a test event for tomorrow and today it shows one day from now-just what I want (not a ridiculous zero days, 12 hours, 19 minutes and 50 seconds). I can find nothing wrong with this program and I don't understand some of the other unfounded complaints. Try it, you'll love the program.
This is a great app but...
I've used this for years but somewhere along the way (possibly with the OS 9 update?) it did wipe out the dates that were in it. When I loaded it up yesterday to update an event, it had all my calendars (which I don't use in it and didn't turn on that I can recall) but no non-calendar data. I swear I had more recent backups, but couldn't find one for later than late 2014.
I was able to load the backup and will have to update it as goes.
The app itself seems to still be functioning like it used to otherwise. I have turned off the calendars and I could create a new backup again so I plan to keep using it, but I wish I hadn't lost that data.
A great app when it works
Conceptually, this app has no peers. The design is clean and very functional. But it just does not sync the way it should.
I am surprised that there is no replacement to this concept all these years. I hope someone come up with an alternative.
