About this app

Do you have a nightmare using your calendar app to add a new event?
Takes too long? Crazy amount of options and clicks?

With Add Quick Event the pain is gone.
Arrange events using a single text field!
You can update calendar almost with no time.

No need to jump from one place to another setting many options.
Everything will be put in the right field while you type. Prepare new entry instantly!

You can quickly add two custom reminders. Type "phone mum 19 r15 r30" to create reminder about calling mum at 19:00. You will be reminded twice: 15 and 30 minutes before the event (if both of them are set for minutes). Basically it changes reminders values of which you have in settings. It activates them even any of them is switched off. If a reminder is set for days, "2r" will set reminder 2 days before the event occurs.

Just use easy to memorise key words.
- Type ‘9 phone Mark’ to schedule ‘phone Mark’ today at 9:00.
- Pints this Friday? Enter: 'fr 18 pub'
- Do you have lunch with mom next Sunday? Simply type: '2su 13 lunch with mum'
- Enter ‘7.8 2w working from home’ to set event that on 7th of August you will start working from home for 2 weeks.

Key:
• numbers = type 8 to get 8:00 AM, 13 to get 1:00 PM or 1445 to get 2:45 PM
• numbers + pm or am = enter 8am to get 8:00 AM or 8pm to get 8:00 PM
• h = 1 hour later
• 2h = 2 hours later
• d = tomorrow
• 2d = the day after tomorrow
• [number]d = after [number] days (3d, 4d, 10d, etc)
• Replace h or d with w or m to set weeks or months same way
• mm/dd or mm/dd/yy = month/day (11/30) or month/day/year (7/15/2017)
• mo or tu/we/th/fr/sa/su = selects coming day of a week (mo = Monday, tu = Tuesday, etc)
• 2mo or [number]tu = selects next Monday or n-th Tuesday
• 45r = remind 45 minutes before (overrides default reminder)

Examples:
• 9 phone Mark = phone Mark today at 9:00 AM
• 3h check emails = check emails after 3 hours (if the current time is 2:15 PM, the event will be set at 5:15 PM)
• Dan's birthday = Dan's birthday (today, all day event)
• w 17 catch up//my desk//budget jane@mywork.com = catch up, my desk (location), budget (description) next week at 5:00 PM + adds guest and sends invitation on email provided
• fr 18 drinks = drinks at 6:00 PM on this Friday
• 2su 13 lunch with mum = next Sunday lunch with mum at 1:00 PM
• 9/17 2w working from home = working from home since 9/17/2017 for 2 weeks
• 8/14 8/20 holiday = holiday from 8/14/17 to 8/20/2017
• 11/22 830 930 breakfast with boss = breakfast with boss on 11/22/2017 from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM

Personalise your settings:
- Set regular duration of your meeting. You can also set ending of an appointment by typing: ‘15 16 meeting with Jane'.
- Set when you usually want to be reminded about an appointment.
- You can also set custom reminder by typing: ‘20 45r phone Rich’. ‘45r’ = remind 45 minutes before, so you will be reminded about that phone call 45 minutes before 20:00.

This app is more usable than voice control. No problem with background noise. Nobody can hear your meeting details. Scheduling is safe and reliable.

You can manage your diary easily creating entries just in a single text field.

It easily analyses the text as you type and put into right fields instantly so you make sure that the appointment or meeting will be created properly.

No need for jumping from one box to another, dealing with many confusing options. Organise your diary flawlessly.

Giving this a bump for its ingenuity. This could replace both a calendar and a task manager app. To go from quick to lightning quick, may i recommend a quick add button in the notification tray. That combined with the shorthand key would equal, like, the Flash-level of quickness. For those with ADD, the ability to transcribe thoughts quickly and effortlessly is paramount. Will try this out. Thank you.

Update. Stopped working after a recent update. Thanks to Adam for pushing out a new version quickly and then walking me thru steps to clear cache and storage. Uninstall. Reboot . Install. Reboot and back to normal. Original review: this natural Language application that I use a custom gesture to start is a daily driver for quickly capturing and entering events. More accurate and flexible than Google assistant. Would be one app I would dearly miss if it went missing for any reason.

I'm switching from Inbox to Gmail. To replicate Inbox's reminders-in-email, I created a separate reminder calendar, and am creating calendar "events" for my "reminders". Good: - I can customize which calendar to quick add to. - Lets me preview event time before adding. Bad: - I said to microphone "take out the trash at 3:45pm" and Start Time is set to 3:45am.

This app is not meant to be used with voice. Use keyboard instead with help of some keywords - there is a list of available words below the the entry field. This way you can create calendar event super fast and accurately.

What's new

- You can now put negative numbers in front of a key words, so "-3d 18 meeting" creates an even 3 days before the current date
- Invite guests entering their emails (they will be notified about your event)
- Fixed bug affecting URL links (https:// and http://).
- Modify the keywords - go to settings and update them to meet your likening (use / to set different versions of a keyword).
