Are you looking for a fun way to keep track of your calendar? Look no further than Diacarta, an app for your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that brings a hint of style and sophistication to your daily planner. It is really easy to use and only costs $1.99. The icon next to the Diacarta trademark is of an old compass morphing into a wristwatch. I assume the design is made to look cultured and worldly.
In the home screen is an analog clock with faint lines indicating time intervals around the outside of it. The clock keeps the current time, with either AM or PM listed in the middle of it. Whichever date you go to in the calendar the clock always keeps the current time. If you are in AM and you want to add events to PM you simply slide your finger across the screen.
To add tasks to any day there is a plus icon at the bottom of the screen, that gives you access to 50 or so icons. The icons encompass everything you can imagine including a cocktail, airplane, dumbbell, and baby. Even with all of those options if you don’t find the one you are looking for there is also a blank circle in which you can type out the specific item you want to keep track of.
There are two ways to add the icons onto the wheel of time, you can either drag it and hook it on or you can double tap it to add in details such as, beginning and ending time, location, name, and any other notes you may have. While you are in this mode of detailing the icon you also have the option to browse and change the image you have currently selected.
If you ever need to schedule two or more events at the same time a reminder will pop up once you save that informs you that you already have an event and asks if you want to overlap. Once you have added tasks or events to a certain date, a bullet point will appear on it in the monthly calendar. Once you have completed a task you simply use the star button on the bottom of the screen to label the item as completed.
Diacarta is a pretty remarkable iPhone app. Even though I have iCal on my phone and computer, I prefer to use Diacarta. I find it simpler to use and more aesthetically pleasing. The only shortcoming the app has is that you can’t sync your computer calendar with your phone calendar like you can with iCal.
