"Journaling apps are typically about capturing moments or getting your thoughts down on paper as often as you can. Life Calendar takes a slightly different approach, and instead works as means to memorialize a week at a time." — Lifehacker
"Life Calendar encourages you to look past your schedule and log your thoughts on the past week." — Netted
Life Calendar helps you visualize your life by breaking it down to weeks and displaying it in a grid. Each week is symbolized by a little box, and each box can be color coded. Notes can be added to each week, and with them you can capture any thoughts, dwellings, feelings, or reflections you cherish during that time.
• Your entire life’s weeks, one by one, visualized in a grid.
• Cherish your life by adding a note to every week.
• One note every week, 52 notes every year.
• Define each week with color by choosing from a growing array.
• Take and store snapshots of your entire life, either in weeks or in years.
• Export your notes and save them anywhere by using Life Notebooks.
• Add images and moods to your weeks.
• Store your Life Calendar with accounts and keep it backed up and available across multiple devices.
• Custom reminders make sure you never forget to take a note.
• Use tags to give meanings to your colors
• Lock your app with a 4 digit code
Imagine the perspective you'd get on your life if you keep taking weekly notes for a year or two! Wouldn't that be really helpful?

Ratings and Reviews
Well-designed and easy to use
I came across Tim Urban’s post “Your Life In Weeks” and immediately started trying to create my own application based off of it, instead of first reading the comments to see if anyone had the same idea and already created one. I came back a week later and read the comments and discovered that this was indeed the case and tried out all the applications that readers already made. I found this to be the most well-designed app out of all them with the most functionality, so I’m sticking with this one.
I love all of the extra features like being able to color-code weeks, select the starting day of each week, and switch to yearly view. However, I did notice that while the minimalistic design is elegant and easy to use, it has a few drawbacks-for example, it’s difficult to go back and find specific events, since it doesn’t display them on the individual boxes and the years don’t actually start in January but on your birthday. I would appreciate a setting that allowed you to set the left side of the grid to start on January 1st, with the far right boxes carrying over to the next years’ first week if necessary for this reason. A search bar that links to the titles of each event would also be nice.
I love this app overall, and it is very useful and motivating!
I really appreciate the kind words! Both of your suggestions have already been requested by other users, so these are in the roadmap. I'm toying around the idea of having the calendar start with January, but still not entirely sure how to display it without making it overly complicated for users. Hopefully will figure something out!
Nice and Handy
This app is easy to use and it has an awesome concept. Especially, it helps me to look back what has happened to me for my lifetime.
What I really want from the developer is to add hashtag or search feature. It will help every user to find their memories easily. I REALLY appreciate all your efforts on this app.
Thanks a lot for the kind words! I'll keep this in mind for future updates. :)
A great way to put life into perspective and realize the value of the time we have each day.
I really appreciate the kind words! Thanks a lot Matt.
Most of the app's extra functionality is available for a one time fee - the Premium upgrade. This should be fine for most users.
The Pro upgrade - which is available for a subscription - is meant for users who heavily journal, especially with multiple images / audio recordings. Since the app will have to store this data for a (theoretically) indefinite time, a one time fee just one scale - database charges will increase with time, and the only way we can support this is with a subscription based model.
Again, this upgrade is meant for only a minority of users. The one time Premium upgrade should be more than enough for most users. I hope that makes sense!
