  • The NEWEST! Planner 2009 for Kindle – This utility for your Kindle makes it possible to record important dates for the year in a day planner format. Divided into months and weeks, Planner 2009 uses Kindle’s notetaking function to help you record reminders directly to your Kindle and review them individually or for the whole year at once. Planner 2009 for Kindle includes a “Year at a Glance” page, and “Directions for Use.” More versatile than Calendar when it comes to recording important dates for the year, but still easily navigable with the fully linked start page, Planner 2009 for Kindle adds another functionality to the Kindle you know and love.

    Please make the Amazon Kindle a better design than what I’ve seen in previews of the Kindle 2.0.

    Kindle needs to rid itself of that giant ugly keyboard. It needs to place the page turn buttons in a place where they won’t get continuously touched. Until they make design improvements — and I’ve seen the 2.0 and I am NOT impressed — I will not be purchasing one.

    Amazon, the thing looks clunky and unappealing. The bottom of it is wasted space taken up by a keyboard. The big “improvement” in the 2.0 version is the rounded corners and circular keys on the keyboard. That is NOT a design improvement.

    You need to study Apple or Sony for good design and mimic them!

    I bought Calendar for Kindle. When you say “month by month calendar” are you referring to the page that shows all twelve months at once? Or is there a way to show one month at a time?

    Also, is entering special days, such as birthdays, similar to entering a “note?”

    Thanks for downloading the Calendar. Yes, I intended “month-by-month” to refer to the page with all of 2009 shown. As for keeping your dates, you are right–just make a “note” next to the appropriate indicator (for example, “birthdays”) and record your reminder there. Then you can read it by clicking “My Notes and Marks” while the Calendar file is open.

    If you save the “.mbp” file (same name as the Calendar file, just different file type) that you can see in your Kindle documents folder onto your computer next year before loading Calendar for 2010, it will preserve the dates that you have saved for 2009. I will provide more detailed instructions on this if you would like.

    Do you think a listing of the months on a separate page (e.g. “January,” “February,” etc.) would be a useful feature? All suggestions welcome!

    I would use this calendar more if there was a page per week or month. I use a planner alot and was hoping I could just use this but I can’t.

    I d/l both the Notepad and the Planner 2009. I was looking for something for my Kindle as I wait to get a ‘smart phone.’ First the Planner 2009, this is wonderful addition to the Kindle. It took me a few mintues to figure out how I wanted to do the notes for each week and then enter that data that I wanted. I am not just keeping holidays and birthdays but also any appointment that I have. Since I take my kindle with me all the time, when I need to set up another appointment I can quickly check and see if the time and day are free. I don’t have the bulk of a paper day planner to worry about.
    The Notepad is great. It is right there to write down things that I need to remember. If was any one thing I would like to change it would be to be able to change the ‘title’ from Note 1 to a name that would remind me of why I wrote that note. So far I have not had a problem.
    Both of these additions to my Kindle have proved to be very valuable.

    Thanks for making these utilities free. I’ve downloaded a copy of two of them and will try them out.

    Thanks again.

    I’m tried to download the calendar and the notepad and I’m not having any luck at all? Does anyone know if it can be downloaded to a mac and then added to the kindle? Thanks!

    Hi Deb–not sure about the Mac question but I can email them to you if you would like.

    Thanks for offering to email them to me, I found them on the amazon site for an amazingly low price, I hope you get payment for them. That way they were sent to me through whispernet which worked really well.

    Is the planner for Kindle 2 – will installing it create any problems with Kindle/Amazon updates?

    Hi Sharon,

    The Planner is just a document that you are adding to the Kindle/2 and then annotating using the “notes” function on the Kindle. It won’t interfere with updates any more than any other document you have loaded on the device, meaning not at all! Enjoy!
