The idea for easyPlanner came from the iPhone native calendar. The native calendar allows you to click on a date and add events for you to remember. I tried using the calendar and was extremely disappointed. It took 5-10 clicks just to get a single event to be recorded (write in date, time, notes, title, etc all separately). This makes the iPhone calendar virtually unusable.

I wanted something which runs very fast, loads quickly, doesn't hog much memory, and is as intuitive and easy to use as possible.

Here's what easyPlanner looks like:

There are only two screens. One displays notes. You can click on a day and the notes will load instantly. There is no delay like in the iPhone 'notes' app. Tap anywhere on the screen to add a note, hit save, and you are done. The note will appear whenever you click on that date.
This comes to show how adding tons of features to an application can make it much worse. Often, simpler apps are the way to go.
Let me know what you think.
