My thanks to TimeFrame for sponsoring the Very Nice Web Site RSS feed this week. TimeFrame gives you a quick overview of where your time is allocated, letting you easily see what takes most of your time and where your free time lies. It’s a great take on perennial problem.
Three years ago, I was at my parents’ house for Christmas when their fridge calendar changed my life.
I looked at it, with birthdays colored in green, important events in red and free days gloriously empty, and I wondered why my own mobile calendar (which I otherwise loved) didn’t give me such instantly an accessible view of my time. That idea — a calendar for iPhone that communicated my schedule at a glance — stayed in the back of my mind for a year, and it grew. I imagined a calendar that used its limited screen space well, showing the next several weeks even if it was the end of the month. It allowed users to see their events with flexible levels of detail, and it let them keep their larger schedule in focus, even while they added or edited events.
Eventually, I realized I couldn’t be content imagining this calendar: I needed to write it. I quit my job to found Ten David, and now, a year later, we’re proud to present TimeFrame to you.
You’re going to love the way TimeFrame recaptures the effect of a good paper calendar: one look at it really lets you understand what you’re doing with your day, week, or month: and we think you’ll be delighted to discover what else it has to offer.
