So my wife was nice enough to stand in line at the local Apple Store to procure an iPhone for Jotlet!
I’m still not sure what Mr. Jobs meant when he said developers will be able to interact with iPhone functionality and all that jazz (there’s still no specific development information other than “make a web site “). Until then, make a web site is precisely what we’ll do.
If you have any ideas you’d like to see implemented, let us know soon! We’ll be developing it pretty rapidly. Don’t worry, we’ll make it super slick!
Many of you have wondered if I could make a tutorial on how to make the iPhone icons I made earlier. My answer: “of course I can!” so I’ll work on that a bit today and hopefully have it up on Monday!
Ok so I’m going to post a myriad of posts soon outlining some of our newest features, one feature at a time. Today’s new feature is actually a bunch of features wrapped up into one: the new Day View!Ok it works like this: you have a grid representing your day, and you draw a box to create an event. You choose a calendar and the box changes to the color of that calendar. Type in an event name, hit “enter” and you’re done! It’s the quickest way to create an event! If you’re so inclined, you may also modify the event’s duration and start time by resizing and dragging around the box. Fun!
There’s more to this new view than fancy event addition and modification! Yes sir! There’s also fancy task addition! If you’re like me, you enjoy keeping a running list of things you’re supposed to be doing. This is the best place in the world (yes, the world) to modify this task list. Just type in what you want to do (”milk the cows”), pick a calendar (”daily farm chores”) and hit enter. It saves your last calendar selection so when you want to create a new task (”put all chicken eggs in one basket”) then all you have to do is type it and hit “enter”. Simple and fun. We’re all about that.
But wait, there’s ever more! Just below the task list is a nice little sheet of paper tacked to your day view. This is for personal notes for that day. It works well as a general reminder: “Don’t forget to code awesome things into Jotlet today!”. At least, that’s what I use it for. You can use it however you please, such as flattery: “You sure are one good looking fellow right now!”
Underneath that piece of paper is a “print this day” button, that allows you to create a printout of that days’ activities, tasks and note. When you fold that printout into quadrants, it makes a nice little wallet-sized booklet! A Jotlet Booklet!
So we hope you enjoy these new Day View features. We sure sure! If you have any ideas on how to make Jotlet work better for you, then drop us a line!If you don’t have a Jotlet account yet, be sure and get one! It’s the most fun you’ll have organizing things since, well, probably ever.

That’s right! Jotlet has Facebook integration! Now you can view and share your Jotlet calendar from directly within Facebook. We’ve packed some exciting new functionality into this handy new extension, including:
- Share your Jotlet.net calendars with your Facebook friends
You can share your calendars to any of your Facebook friends, even if they’re not Jotlet users!
- Publish your calendar to all (or some) of Facebook
Think “public share”. Publish your calendar to your friends or to the entire Facebook community (you decide!)
- View Facebook events and birthdays inline with your Jotlet schedule
The Jotlet extension makes it easy to see all of your information in one place.
It’s always been easy to manage your schedule at Jotlet.net, and now it’s even easier to share it with your friends and family. Check out the about page on Facebook, or go straight to the Jotlet Extention.
note from Matt :
Kudos to Adam for putting up a fully functional Facebook app! This Jotlet application doesn’t merely show your calendar, it utilizes Facebook’s social infrastructure to allow you to share your calendars with your friends, and even publish events to a global level.
It’s perfect for any group, and it’s great for anyone who needs to share their itinerary with their friends.

As always, our goal is to make your life just a little bit easier, and this miniature update does just that!
Now, when you mouse over a day box in month view, a little [+] link will appear. Click that [+] link to go straight to the add event form! Type in your event title and press enter, and presto! you’re event is added to that date in month view.
