Digital Planning on an iPad for Beginners
Planning/planners go hand in hand with organization and we all know that organization is my love language 💛I've recently discovered digital planning on my iPad and it has flipped my organization-loving world upside down in the best way!
I LOVE digital planning because I can access my planner anytime AND the best part - if I make a mistake or plans change, I can erase without having ugly scratch outs on my planner pages 🙌 I wanted to have a post that I could direct people to with all the details in one place SO here we go!
What I use:
TABLET: iPad Pro (I currently have the 2018 11.9 inch but I used to digital plan on the 2017 10.5 inch)
TABLET COVER: This one from Amazon*
STYLUS: Apple Pencil (I currently have the generation 2 but I used to use the generation 1)
APP: GoodNotes (I’ve heard that Xodo is good for Android but I don’t have experience with it)
PLANNER: Hustle Sanely Build Your Own Planner
PLANNING PAGES: Hustle Sanely Etsy shop
DIGITAL STICKERS: Hustle Sanely Etsy shop
I have different spreads for different things. That's another thing I love about digital planning - you can add as many pages to your planner as you want BUT IT NEVER GETS HEAVIER (or thicker). It's almost more like a Bullet Journal than an actual planner.
Can you see the planner on your phone?
Can you edit the planner on your phone?
Yes, but it is WAY more tedious than doing it on the iPad.
Do you have to use GoodNotes?
Not necessarily. That's just the note taking app that I prefer. The digital planner template that I use is a PDF document. So as long as the app that you are using allows you to manipulate/work in PDFs you should be fine! I’ve heard that Xodo is good for Android users.
I hope this was helpful! Digital planning is becoming so popular and I know it can be overwhelming at first! Let me know if y'all have any questions down below! HAPPY PLANNING PARTY PEOPLE!
