There’s a new iphone / ipad app on the scene that is garnering a lot of buzz…and for good reason. The Super Planner is an event industry app developed by Howard Givner, and is one of the most in-depth mobile tools on the market today.

It is a digital encyclopedia of industry calculators convenient enough to carry with you everywhere in your purse or pocket. Just as a good measuring tape, hotel directory, business calendar and frequent flyer miles are mainstays for the planner, so too should be the Super Planner.

Overall, it’s extremely comprehensive, easy to use and even if you know it all, I challenge you to be able to calculate it as fast and conveniently as you can using this app. For $9.99 it may just be one of the most used tools in your event planning arsenal.  click here to read full review.

    I would like to have a full events planning app for iPhone which also includes contacts for venues, deejays, clients, etc. within the app. I would also like to be able to have folders to separate events by name like a file cabinet. This way I can keep my info within the party and bringing them up when discussing each event being much easier.
