What is a digital planner and how do I use one? 

A digital planner is a virtual version of a traditional paper planner that you can use on tablets with a stylus, like an iPad with the Apple Pencil for example. 

It offers various features like customizable layouts, reminders, note-taking capabilities, and more. To use a digital planner, you typically import it into a note-taking app like Goodnotes. Then, you can use a stylus or your finger to write, type, and interact with the planner. It's a convenient way to stay organized and keep track of your schedules, tasks, and notes digitally.

What are the benefits of using a digital planner?

In general, digital planners have much more functionality than a traditional paper planner.

  • Easily add multimedia: Digital planners allow you to easily incorporate digital stickers, images, and links, making it easy to personalize 
  • Creative Freedom: Your one stylus puts a thousand pens, highlighters, and tools at your fingertips.
  • Editability: Edit your writing or ink, and make changes effortlessly.
  • More Content: Digital planners often offer more pages and extras compared to traditional paper planners due to restrictions in bulk
  • Reusability: If your digital planner is undated, you can reuse it year after year, saving money and reducing waste

Do I need an iPad to use a digital planner? 

Not necessarily! At the basic level, all you need is a tablet, a stylus, and a note-taking app.
