Please Update for iphone

Two years ago, I purchased an itouch to simplify my life.  I contacted FC, explained to them that I have been using their system since 1988 and that I wantd to continue to use their system but in an electronic format using my itouch.  They said that they were wokring on it.

At work, I use Outlook...I have had to stop using FC and I now use Pocket Informant, which is ok and similar to FC's system, but not not really what I needed.  I purchased this app becasue the FC tasks and goals were very poorly rated. 


Anyways, I check the website regularly to see if a new app has been created to sync Outlook and my itouch...soon to be a new iphone.  Nothing as of yet and my initial requests were two years ago.


FC still has the best system on the market and I do hope that they will listen to 200+ posts vs. my sole request two years ago. 


Please FC consider developing an app that will bring back a very loyal customer that deeply misses your product!  Thank you!




I attended the Franklin Time

I attended the Franklin Time Management course and used the Franklin Planning system for many years which I loved along with the company's sharp customer focus. However, as good as the paper products are and the outstanding customer support FC provides for them, it is exactly opposite for the more progressive electronic versions of the Franklin system. After waiting years for a decent iPhone app, I have given up on FC ever creating an electronic version that will rival their paper offerings. What they have put out for the iPhone in the past has been trash, and they dragged their feet with every step toward it's initial introduction as well as desparately needed bug fixes which were never fully realized.

However, I did just find a 3rd party app that is just what I have been looking for, ever  since getting my first 3G iPhone.

Go to the app store and search for "Planandnote". It's regularly $7.00 and is being offered for a few days at 50% off. I am not affilliated with the app designer in any way but I think it's a great app that will meet the needs of nearly all Franklin planner users, looking for an iPhone alternative. I think it will become very popular, but it's a new app, just introduced October 25th.

If FC ever gets it's act together and decides to support it's smart phone using customer base, that has moved beyond paper, I might take another look. Until then, I'm perfectly content with this new option.
Best Regards

You might also check out "Benjamin" in the App Store. It's an iPhone app that follows the FranklinCovey system for tasks and note taking. It should serve as a pretty good replacement for the Franklin Planner when used in conjunction with the built-in Calendar and Contacts apps.
