HotSchedules is a pocket reminder from the namesake company HotSchedules that helps to make work plans for coming days and weeks. The application is available on Android and iOS devices.
The app's layout looks very simple. On the main screen, you can see days of the week, and something that was planned. It's convenient to tap there and understand what's necessary to do. The design looks a bit outdated, and the schedule view was much better before it changed. Anyway, it's aligned with the app's functionality.
