The first step for Moleskine Timepage is connecting it to an existing calendar. You’ll have to do this by way of Google, iCloud, or Microsoft Exchange. More avenues for linking timelines would be great, but really, all of the major players are covered here, and most external options allow you to transfer to the big three anyway.
Having said that, I really wish you could just import directly from your calendar, as I had a few syncing issues the first two times I attempted to bring over my iCloud account. It’s something I’m willing to work around, but a local option would have been preferred.
The initial thing I noticed about Timepage is that it was sleek. Even the intro had style, and the entire calendar is one of the coolest looking apps I’ve seen from a design perspective. The hues are all pleasing to the eye, the graphics have animations to them that aren’t too distracting, and all of the text is bold and stands out. A big feature (and lack of a feature at the same time, depending on your view) is the simplistic format in which Timepage displays your events.
It’s all one continuous screen, with no traditional “calendar” style view. It’s more like a planner, which I’m actually ok with as I tend to only look at a few weeks at a time anyway. I really like how the app adapts to what you’re planning, as it’ll draw from your contacts to place a face with a name, or even estimate travel times and dynamically display and update the weather. If you’re so inclined, the app has Apple Watch support as well.
It took me a long while to figure out that the app wasn’t actually called “Moleskin” (did it get you too?), but “Moleskine,” based off that popular real life notebook company that you may have patronized for school. Whatever your level of familiarity is with the company though, the calendar is a great option if you’re bored with your current status quo.
Moleskine Timepage is an iOS app that can be downloaded for $4.99 in the iTunes App Store.
