I use Instagram. I browse Reddit. I read e-books (though I do get hardcopies for the books I love, I just think they’re better for re-reading your favourite stories since I like to jump around a lot).
One thing that I hate using are digital calendars. Yes, they give timely notifications and reminders. Never forget an appointment. But for planning? I think they suck. The information I need are never there at a glance, but in another tab. Oh there’s an event on that Saturday? Where? What time? Click. In for more information. Click. Out to the weekly view. Click. Out to monthly/yearly view. Click back in.
As for paper calendars, they’re easy and intuitive having grown up with them. They’re simple to use. Not perfect, you lose notifications, and it’s not something you keep on you at all times. But most of all, they’re not re-usable. A huge pain in the ass.
So I needed a simple, large and re-usable calendar. That was the promise of SuperYR and I was sold. Let me link to the SuperYR Kickstarter campaign here. Read on for my impressions on the SuperYR after a couple weeks of use.
