2023 Smartphone Digital Planner

Create your own Smartphone Digital Planner in no time!

Digital planners are super popular in marketplaces such as Etsy and that’s not surprising. They are much more convenient than carting around a huge, heavy paper planner.

But then there are many who don’t want to carry their ipad or tablet wherever they go either.

No one has pockets that big!

For those of us who want something more portable, this dated and fully-hyperlinked Smartphone Digital Planner is the answer.

The “always with you” planning tool that has been designed to work smoothly with iphone and Android phones!

How Does the Smartphone Digital Planner work?

The planner uses the usual annotation apps that people have for any digital planner such as GoodNotes, Notability, and Xodo (but NOT OneNote as that uses a different system.)

You can use your finger to click links and resize boxes and your usual phone on-screen keypad to type. You can also use any stylus that works with your iPhone or Android phone.

Note that the Apple Pencil only works with the iPad and not the iPhone. For phones you need a (much cheaper) generic capacitive pencil – typically less than $10.

Frequently Asked Questions

How easy are the templates to customize?

Very easy with the step by step illustrated instructions included with your purchase.

Will the template work with Powerpoint for Mac or Keynote

The template will not work on Powerpoint for Mac because the links will not be preserved. The template will work in Keynote if you right-click the file and open in Keynote (don’t double click to open). See this video for more details about this method. Note the instructions for editing the template are for Powerpoint but they are very similar for Keynote.

Does it work on Canva?

No, Canva is not suitable for creating dated digital planners with thousands of links.

Can I pass on the PLR rights to the template or sell it

Your rights only allow you to sell the final PDF version of the planner NOT the template. You cannot pass on the PLR rights to others. But you can sign up as an affiliate to send people to this page to buy the template if you wish. SIGN UP HERE
