Calendar apps that show the continuous flow of weeks
April 15, 2012 3:08 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for personal productivity apps in which the calendar view can be presented in a continuous flow of weeks (such as http://madebyevan.com/calendar/ ) in alternative to the more tradicional day/week/month model.

What's wrong with that one?

You're not giving us much to go on. What system? What features do you want?

The new Basecamp calendar is really nice, and Basecamp definitely counts as a personal productivity app. You might find it pricey but it depends on how much you value your time, what you have to do and the value of what you accomplish. http://basecamp.com/calendar

@jeffmilner, that one is just a proof of concept, nothing that can be used as part of a serious productivity system.

@michaelh, I'm looking for a simple todo app with a calendar, in which the calendar must have a view of continuous weeks. I haven't tried basecamp, but from the screenshots the calendar looks what I am looking for... but a bit expensive...

Any cheaper alternatives?

Try Google Calendar defaulting to the "four weeks" custom view and Google Tasks. It's paginated, but it uses the scroll wheel and it's month-agnostic. Click a date to add a task. Also, the agenda view is a nice way to see your upcoming tasks regardless of how spaced out they are.

@michaelh, I was not aware of the custom view options on Google calendar, thanks!

Another alternative is Mozilla Thunderbird's Lightning extension, which has a "Multiweek" view in the calendar.
