    Default iPad Pro Franklin Replacement?

    Hello there,
    Hope this question hasn't already been asked before. I'm asking myself if the iPad Pro can be a replacement of my Franklin Covey Planner - daily notes, tasks etc in connection with pen? Is there a standard app included or would it be an app invest?

    Thank you so much for your response in advance!

    Regards,
    Chris

    The iPad Pro, by default, comes with a Calendar, Reminders app, Notes app, Email app, Contacts app, etc., so yes, it can possibly be a replacement for your mentioned planner. Now in regard to the "pen", any Apple compatible stylus should suffice, but the Pencil is recommended.

    I have been looking for a app that would replace my planner as well..since, although those built-in apps (calendar, notes, reminders, etc.) are good...they are also very scattered. I need something that looks, acts and reads like a Franklin planner. Anybody got a clue?

    I just use the stock calendar, lol. Right now I'm in a training program with an insane schedule but somehow I'm able to enter everything in the calendar, hourly, daily whatever, use the reminders, get notices about overlapping classes, travel time, traffic conditions, and whatnot.

    The feature that helps me the most is not even new: it's continuity, I need to be able to switch back and forth between devices.
    But otherwise, knock on wood, the calendar app serves my needs perfectly.

    Check out Planner Pro. It may be of interest as it is designed to be like a planner, ie with notes, calendar and tasks all integrated in a single daily, weekly and monthly view. I used it several months ago. It was good and evolving. At the time I was also trying to integrate both iOS and Android, too. It had some glitches across platforms.

    The trusted Informant app may be of interest as well.

    There is an app called Notepad+ which is especially designed for the pencil I believe. It has a number of templates built in, a daily planner being one of them. I haven't had much chance to try it though. It also has a meetings template. I was looking at this for the very same reason. Until I try it with the pencil, I can't say for sure but it looks promising.

    This is interesting. I keep those things organized spread out across a few apps, I'm curious to see how an all-in-one solution works!

    ... I remember that several years ago I tested the application "Opus Domini". It was done exactly based on Covey theory...
    I don't know if it's still updated.
