However, Cal is directly tied to the planning and todo app, The two productivity apps work hand in hand, syncing tasks, meetings, obligations, and any other type of commitment users may have. Users have a full range of personalization options too, as they can set a custom photo theme and app icon badge.

Users must remember that on its own, Cal is very limited in what it can do, as it really only creates events. But when coupled with, it becomes a one-step way to plan ahead days, weeks, and even months at a time. Users simply select the “plus sign” at the top right of the screen in their Cal app and title their task and activity. Once they have created a task, they indicate the day and time at which it will begin. If it’s a reoccurring activity, users can have Cal remind them at daily and weekly intervals.
