Lacks focus

Skip this calendar program for one that sticks to the script.

Daily Planner Plus aims to be the organizational tool to end all organizational tools. However, rather than being a jack of all trades, the program ends up being a master of none thanks to an over-abundance of useless features.

This program has a look unlike any other planning software we've tested. Users first see a large open screen with small command icons running along the top and settings running along the left side of the screen. Initially, this looked more like a design program than a planner. The commands along the top range from creating a daily journal, calendar, and to-do list, to mortgage calculators, warranty information, conversion help, and even a joke teller. The programs all function fairly well and do their intended job; however, we were disappointed by a couple of things. First, none of the calendar features synced up. For example, what your to-do list said was not carried into the daily planner. Second, Daily Planner Plus' fixation with providing tons of options got overwhelming to the point where we could only see users utilizing about a third of these options.

Thanks to a stingy trial period, you only have 15 tries before deciding to buy the program. We recommend you keep looking for a calendar program that focuses what's necessary.
