5 Best Weekly Planner Apps for Android and iOS

Planning ahead of time is a good way to ensure success in pretty much whatever you do. While a lot of us use Google Calendar to plan our weeks in advance, sometimes, it feels inadequate for the task. This is why there are weekly planner apps available in the App and Play Store that fills this gap.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

I am going to list a bunch of weekly planner apps for Android and iOS platforms that try and tackle the problem from different angles. A much needed fresh perspective, if you will. Let’s begin.

Best Weekly Planner Apps

1. Any.do

Any.do is one of the most popular and feature-rich weekly planner app that will change the way you work and plan your weeks. It made its debut as a to-do list app, and later integrated calendar to offer everything in a single layout. Powered by natural language, you can easily schedule events, ask invites, complete tasks, and view everything neatly organized in a calendar view.

Not only that, but you can also use your voice to add location and repeated reminders. Want to divide a long project or tasks into sub-tasks? Any.do will let you create a task within a task. There are other nifty features too like a place to take notes (think sticky notes), a Pomodoro style focus timer, notepad, Alexa and IFTTT integration and so much more.

With so many features and app integrations, Any.do justifies the $2.99 subscription model.

Pros

  • To-do lists
  • Events
  • Notepad
  • Sticky notes
  • Alexa, IFTTT, and more
  • Third-party calendar apps
  • Invite, accept appointments

2. Business Calendar 2

One of the better weekly planner apps for Android, Business Calendar 2 has got everything. It comes with everything you need to plan your workdays well in advance. Some really cool features are the ability to attach files, connect with popular calendar apps like Google Calendar and Microsoft Exchange. And, you can add emoticons too.

You can also create to-do lists right inside the calendar which is pretty cool. You can move events and tasks across dates using drag-n-drop gesture. Have a meeting every month? Create a template and save time the next time you want to schedule it. You can also create multiple calendars and use different audio tunes. There are a number of themes and views to choose from, customize how the calendar looks on your droid.

The uber weekly planner app is free and ad-supported with most featured locked behind a paywall of $4.99. Worth it.

  • Events
  • To-dos
  • Themes, views
  • Widgets
  • Third-party calendar apps

3. Trello

Trello follows the Kanban board method with columns of cards that can be dragged and dropped into a different list. The most popular way of using it is to create a three list: To-do, Doing, and Done. You can now create a card and move it around. each card can contain its own to-do lists, description, notes, files, third-party app integration, and comes with a comment system for team collaboration.

Trello is widely used by both individuals and teams alike and is the most popular Kanban tool on the web. It’s such a powerful weekly planner app that it has widely been accepted as the gold standard of Kanban tools. You can also set reminders and activate the calendar power-up.

The free plan is good enough for most users, even teams, and pricing starts at $5/month if you want to use power-ups.

Pros:

  • Kanban tool
  • To-do lists with calendar
  • Third-party app integration
  • Notes
  • Team collaboration
  • Attach files
  • cloud storage integration

Cons:

  • None

4. Microsoft Outlook

You know what’s missing from all these weekly planner apps? Email. One of the most important yet missing pieces of the puzzle. Microsoft has upped its game and how. Outlook is better than ever before. It has emails, a built-in calendar, and a to-do list manager that syncs directly with its standalone To-Do app.

Being a Microsoft product, it also integrates and works with other apps from the same family like Word, Excel, and OneDrive. That makes outlook a hell of a weekly planner app. There is everything to like and nothing to dislike here.

While Outlook offers a lot of features, it is not exactly a replacement for a to-do app. You will have to download the Microsoft ToDo app for that which is the feature and works extremely well.

Pros:

  • Email
  • Calendar
  • To-do
  • MS Office integration
  • OneDrive
  • Attach files
  • Third-party app integration

Cons:

  • Have to download standalone MS apps

Download Microsoft Outlook: Android | iOS

5. Sectograph

If you are still looking to use Google Calendar or can’t think of replacing it, there is a cool little app called Sectograph. What this app will do is place all events and reminders from Google Calendar on a clock widget on your homescreen. Now, you can view not just the time but also the agenda at a glance. The best thing is that the clock only covers 12 hours at a time, so you will not be bogged down by future events that are still not due.

You can plan classroom schedules, office hours, and so much more with this handy little widget. It will change the way you work and interact with Google Calendar. Maybe, you don’t need other weekly planner apps. I wish there was support for other calendar apps too like Microsoft exchange or Outlook maybe.

Weekly Planner Apps

Choosing or even recommending one app to anyone is a tough job. You will have to choose one based on your own personal needs and work flow. We all work differently and a lot also depends on the field or sector we work it. All of these apps are tried and tested with years or history and millions of users across the globe. Ii would recommend you to try a few of them and see which one boosts your productivity the most.

There are some honorary mentions that didn’t made the list like Remember the milk and Todoist among others.
