EventHorizon - Overview

Do you ever have dates that you want to be reminded of sometime in the future but you don't want to put them in your everyday calendar? EventHorizon is great for keeping track of all kinds of dates such as: holidays, exhibitions, homework due dates, as well as expiry dates for passports, driving licenses or other important documents.

EventHorizon can also display birthdays, anniversaries and other dates from your iPhone or iPod touch's built-in address book.

EventHorizon lets you look into the future and see which events are occurring within a given notice period. EventHorizon has a customizable default notice period and you can also assign custom notice periods to any of your events.

Using EventHorizon is simple:

  • Visit the Settings area to choose your default notice period and create any categories you require.
  • Use the Events section to manage your events. Create new events and assign them to categories.
  • That's it! Every time you open EventHorizon you will see any upcoming reminders in the Reminders area.

Reminders for events are given an urgency level of Normal, Approaching or Urgent depending on how far away in the future the event occurs and reminders are then grouped by their urgency, giving you a clear overview of your urgent reminders, followed by approaching reminders and finally normal reminders. The notice period for each of these urgency levels can be changed to suit you.

  • Displays reminders for upcoming events according to your chosen notice periods.
