Dawn

A minimal, elegant calendar to manage events & reminders

3.3/5
About

Dawn is an elegantly minimal calendar app that aims to revolutionize calendars with integrated to-dos, reminders, and subtasks. It's the calendar for you to manage entire days.

In my opinion, this product is still in BETA. Completely unable to use the app because of its instability. After it crashes, I close the app and re-open it. Dawn gives the same message every time, "We're updating our databases. This may take a few minutes. Hang tight." Well, that message never goes away and the app won't restart without uninstalling and reinstalling only to start the cycle over. I'll look forward to trying again after some major bug fixes.

Pros:

Beautiful to look at. Well executed idea. Perfect and simple onboarding.

Cons:

Crashes a lot. No trial period for a $4 app.

Hi Greg, I’m really sorry about the experience you’re having! Seems like there are still certain compatability issues that aren’t fixed, I’ll get working on stabilization as top priority and make sure crashes or hangs are resolved. Please email me at support@enulus.com and I’ll personally assist you with the issues. I pushed out Dawn as early as possible to try to get user feedback to steer Dawn into the right direction. Promise to have Dawn stabilized within a month!

Really nice UI, but agree that it's buggy. How do I add events, NOT a to-do item?
Product at CNTRAL. Maker of ntwrk.

It makes your existing data beautiful and more approachable. Very nicely done.

Another nice touch is that it cleverly uses a Reminder's notes field to capture subtasks for a reminder. If you add a hyphen "- " at the start of a line in a Reminder's notes, it will add that as a subtask in Dawn. Genius.

Just fucking beautiful.

Pros:

Design is TIGHT! Syncs with your Calendar and Reminders.

Cons:

Some might balk at the $3.99 USD price. You shouldn't.

Hi Joshua, thanks for the positive review! You've discovered one of Dawn's secret features, it's how it's able to backup subtasks to Reminders ;) I'm glad Dawn's design is up to par and has been a great experience, will keep polishing Dawn to remove bugs and add even more features. Wonderful day to you Joshua!

Now the app is frozen on the loading screen. Restarting iPhone X worked, but wish you can select "event" OR "to-do" when tapping the "+".

Pros:

Great UI, easy to read

Cons:

Crashed after 1 use!

Hi John, terrible sorry about the crashes! Dawn is coming out of the MVP stage and should be stabilized after the upcoming updates. Like the suggestion with initial selection of to-do or event, thanks for the feedback! Never hesitate to contact me at support@enulus.com and I'll personally assist you with any issues you encounter!
