"ToDo Calendar with Pomodoro Timer"

Overview

TaskRun Time Planner is an organized planner for people who like to work visually with their daily events and future plans. There is a calendar as the main display with columns for each day and events marked shown in each column. These can be shown as outstanding or crossed through as already completed.

A week is displayed on a single page. This makes it easier to select a column matching the right day and type in each new entry. Multiple items can be entered quickly, other entries selected and marked as completed, or deleted altogether. Existing entries can also be copied and pasted to another day without missing a beat which saves a lot of time on items that might be relevant either on a series of days or only on week days.

The Weekly Planner can printed on 3 by 5 inch index cards which makes it easier to carry around and quickly reference the day or week ahead without needing to navigate a portable digital device to do so.

Interface
