[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Whetstone Apps is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of DayMap 1.8 for Mac and 1.4 for iPhone. DayMap has a completely redesigned User Interface, allowing for a larger workspace. Full screen mode for the Project Outliner and Weekly/Monthly Scheduler, multiple keyboard shortcuts and contextual menu have also been added.
Have you ever been confused by your day planner? Do you think and plan visually? We created DayMap because we believe visual people deserve an organizer tailored to their strengths. DayMap is a visual planning app which helps you plan your days and weeks for optimum productivity. The project outliner places your projects side by side in columns so that you can see more information with less scrolling.

Whetstone Apps started when Todd Cothran became tired of creating his own tasks management system with various spreadsheet and word processing programs. He tried various personal productivity programs but became frustrated when he found they didn't allow him to organize projects and tasks in more visual and intuitive ways. He developed a mock-up and took the idea to Chad Seldomridge, the programmer and Bob Crum, the designer. They decided the idea was worth the effort they would contribute to make this idea a reality. DayMap is the product of this collaboration and it is our hope that it will make thousands of people more productive and less stressed. Copyright (C) 2014 Whetstone Apps. All Rights Reserved.
