Have you ever wished you had a super simple way to keep track of important events? Events like Birthdays, Business or Travel trips or even work deadlines? Sure, you could use a calendar to mark those or a powerful GTD app. The beauty of the App Store is that there really is an app for that.
Pronto is a beautiful app from the fine folks at Createful, based in Bournemouth that lets you easily keep track of important upcoming events. It essentially is a simple lists app, but one that’s build with some very pretty pixels. There’s a very distinguishable color scheme chosen by the developers for Pronto and it may not go well with some users, but I think it fits perfectly with the custom UI style used in Pronto and the app makes you instantly fall in love with it. It’s got plenty of transitions and animations effective enough to bowl you over.
The top level is where you create a list of events. For example, I have a list called “Sponsorships” that I use to list all the upcoming Sponsors for Beautiful Pixels. In this list, I add each sponsor as an individual list item or “event” that I need to finish before a certain due date, in this case setting up the sponsorship content. Once I enter the sponsor and set the due date, I can then add To-dos to each of the event listed inside this list. Pronto will fire a local notification at the set date and time for that event. This is great for listing reminders to buy an anniversary present for your wife. Recurring reminders are available too.
Pronto is a wonderful little app and has made its way onto the second screen on my iPhone. You can buy it from the App Store at $0.99.
