By presenting multiple features in a single experience, the app looks to eliminate the need to bounce between multiple apps to gather necessary information. For instance, when planning a meeting, the app would present weather forecasts and conditions for the meeting location, estimated travel times, directions and more.
As users create events, the app suggests contacts from the iOS address book, as well as places from Google Places. Users can receive directions to events from Apple Maps or Google Maps, and view either the current temperature or the “feels like” temperature for destinations, among other features.
The app’s calendar view is presented as a continuous timeline, rather than separating content into individual month views. Users can browse their schedule by day or week, with empty days presented alongside full days, containing “This Day in History” content.
Users can personalize their calendar view, choosing the number of days to show at one time, or choosing a different color theme. Meanwhile, on Apple Watch, users can view their schedule for the next week, view weather information and temperature graphs, receive transportation time estimates and receive event reminders. Glance view shows the remaining time until the user’s next event, and how long it would take to get there from the current location.
In a statement, Arrigo Berni, CEO of Moleskine, commented on the app:
As a company devoted to the design of tools for creative professionals and knowledge workers, we’re thrilled to be adding another piece to our analog/digital portfolio. Our aim is to offer tools for an ever more productive organization of time, projects and ideas, filling the analog/digital divide. Moleskine TimePage is just the next logical step, from organizing notes, sketches and ideas, to organizing time and projects.
Moleskine TimePage is available to download for $4.99 on the iTunes App Store.
