I'm constantly switching between the two, and it's driving me crazy being so disorganized. I use Wunderlist as a to-do list. I'll create a list, titled with the date, and list the things I need to do that day. So every date requires the creation of a list; sometimes I'll have 10-20 lists when I need to plan further ahead, and it gets tricky when I have something coming up weeks or months ahead of time. The issue is, it's hard looking ahead to see what's been planned, what appointments I have, etc. (I know searching is possible, but that's not the same as having an overview of the next few days or weeks).
When I use Apple's Calendar, I essentially do the same thing, each day is a to-do list. But when in month -- the view I find most helpful -- I can't arrange the orders of the items I create. I have to either go to day view or week view and drag it, or set a time, which can be very tedious if done for each item. Week view can also be quite annoying because there's no ability to scroll horizontally (like you would with a webpage or pdf), it jumps week by week, making planning ahead sort of tricky for me. So essentially, I end up creating an unordered list.
Is there an app that can address these issues? I'm aware that there organization / productivity / calendar apps that are loaded with features, but cost a good amount of money. I don't want to be paying for an app of which only 2% of the features are useful to me. So a minimal app, and one that's free or more afforadable -- really, I'd just like to to address the above issues.
I've scoured the internet, but haven't found anything. Please help, I'm pulling my hair out.
