Ratings and Reviews
Okay, so life changing might sound dramatic but I’m serious. I think I’ve used pretty much every calendar app there is. It may not work for everybody because people have different things they need to keep track up. I need to know what I have going on for the day and what I need to do for the day. This allows me to enter those items quickly and drag them around to change. No more keeping a separate to do list and calendar, it’s an all-in-one. I also keep all the things that I need to do soon but not immediately pinned at the top and out of you and open it on occasion and drag some things to the day that I plan to accomplish them. I am constantly thinking about what I have to do because I feel like I’m going to forget things. Now I have everything organized and relax when I’m not working on my to do list!!! This is the second review I have ever written.
Love the app but hoping for more features
This is still a pretty new app and it is great at consolidating my tasks and calendars which is what I need. I love the ability to pin tasks to the top so I can keep an eye on them before actually having to schedule them and I love that my unfinished tasks automatically roll into the next day. I’m able to categorize my Reminders and then Rooster sees those categories. But it could use a few more features such as ability to seamlessly switch a task from the pick list to a specific day and the ability to assign additional statuses to a task (such as in progress or delegated). It isn’t perfect for me but I’m holding out for a few more months to give the developer a chance for some enhancements because I see the potential here.
Developer Response ,
Thanks heaps for your feedback @carmen09876! It’s been very valuable! You can now drag and drop your tasks, so you can reorder them within lists/days, move tasks across days and drag them seamlessly between the pin board and agenda! I hope this makes organising easier for you :) We’re working as fast as we can on building more updates that will help make life even easier. There’s only one person doing development right now (myself) but we hope to add more to move faster as we grow. Just got to get there first :) But thanks again for your feedback and we hope you continue to enjoy Rooster!
Have to train myself
Having the integrated TASK feature is a big help rather than having to also use iOS Notes app. Rooster is slightly diff than using iOS Calendar app - not necessarily better or worse. I am learning new features as I go along.
I think it will grow on me over time. I would give it a 4.75 rating and still rising.
The Task entries stay on the startup screen which I use to remind me to attend to them.
I wish I could change the Alert 1&2 Settings without having to pick Edit button like I can in Calendar. I set alerts typically as 1 & 2 days in advance then when the 2 day alert goes off I change the 2 day to 2 hours, then the 1 day to 1 hour. Wish that could be automated which would be a big leap over Calendar app.
The current day does ‘soft lock’ on Today. if you tap on the Day-Date at top center it moves you to the TODAY list. Very helpful.
I wish it had a setting to put my phone ringer on mute during an event as an option. It would help when I forget to change the vol switch or raise the vol setting before & after a meeting. That would be a real plus !

Thanks for your review @Jim in MD, and for your great suggestions! We're constantly looking at how we can improve Rooster to make it as helpful as possible and your feedback really helps. To address the issue of locking on Today, if you press today's date at the top, it will snap back to Today. Hope you find that useful! If you have any other suggestions or feedback, please feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time! Thanks @Jim in MD! Trev
