Hi everyone. I first want to apologize if this is nothing more than a repeat of other questions, I couldn’t find anything specific to my circumstances but I could just be a terrible searcher.
I’m trying to figure out something that I can use with my family to help organize things. But my concern is whether or not I can spend the close to $100 (with the custom perspectives) for this app.
I’ve been ineffectively using reminder apps since I got my PPC in the early 2000s, the main one I used was Pocket Informant and I never actually got comfortable enough with the interface to use it to its potential.
This Christmas my wife was desperately wanting to get me a combined birthday/Christmas gift so I suggested an Apple Watch which I’m in love with. It’s been fantastic so far and I’m trying to find something to fill a task void that I clearly have.
Basically, I have standard events that happen regularly. My kids are in a great many activities and I, personally, have lots of varying doctor appointments. The reason I mention these is that I almost certainly forget about them coming up and have yet to figure out a good system that would work to help my terrible memory.
As well, things such as household tasks which just seem slightly cumbersome to do in reminders due to limited settings are just that, cumbersome.
Is there much of a learning curve with OF? Is it something I can jump in and just get running with, or do I need to set aside a decent amount of time for prep and adjustments? I rarely get time to sit and do things (I generally dont get a chance to sit and do until the late evening and by then I’m relaxing), so buying something that will take much tweaking will likely get stuck on the back burner for a while.
Also, I’ve seen a lot of talks about custom perspectives, but because I’ve not used the app I’m unsure the impact stuff like that will make on me?
I just hesitate because it is so expensive in Canada and I’ve spent a lot on some potentially great apps in the past and they sit, collecting electric dust for that one day when “I have free time”.
Again thanks in advance, and if this has been asked and there’s an existing thread I’m more than happy to have this one shut down.
