Designed for visual cortex

Lightpad is a calendar that lets you use your excellent visual cortex for planning. Don't waste consciousness on stitching week rows in the table. Use all of it to focus on the tasks at hand. Lightpad's spatial layout allows you to understand at a glance how far or close the tasks/events/goals are on the timescale and manage priorities accordingly.

Table calendars were designed centuries ago for the constraints of a physical medium – paper. These constraints do not apply to the virtual world. Use your brain as it was meant to be.

Let planning spark joy!

Energy and motivation

Unleash the true potential of your brain.
Lightpad helps you to focus, to envision the bigger picture.
From vision comes energy and motivation.
And that yields the fruit.

Dopamine looping. Social apps use notifications to trigger dopamine hits and tie you to their ad-selling platform. We, in turn, give that lever back to you. We develop the UX of Lightpad in such a way that dopamine hits help you to stay focused on your goal.
We aim for a symbiotic relationship – we help you achieve your goals and you just send us a few bucks from time to time.

Organised and Colorful
Because it's for humans!

Lightpad uses tags to organize content. Each tag can have its own color scheme allowing you to create distinct environments for better mood and memory. See scholarly articles on cognitive anchoring

Notes and focused writing

Lightpad has notes. Notes have focus mode. Focus mode helps you to concentrate on the writing by removing all visual distractions. Only your mind, your text, and color.

Compared to popular writing tools, Lightpad's focus mode offers five flavors, three of which play with the background gradient.

A sprout with a Roadmap

Lightpad aims to develop more key features in the upcoming months, including:

  • Integration with Google Calendar (ETA July 2020)
  • Robust task structure editing
  • Hierarchical tag viewer
  • Means for collaboration (partially done, lacks UI)
  • Scalability for teams small and large (partially done, lacks UI)
  • Better notes editing
  • Notifications
  • Native apps
  • Lots of secret sauce features to augment your thinking and growth abilities

We don't guarantee any time frames for those, or that particular order of development, as our priorities adapt dynamically to the unfolding reality. But boy there're coming. You can see though that we have already delivered some of our promises from April 2020 – Timeflow scaling and rescheduling.


Data is yours

A quite essential right, sometimes forgotten. You can always download your data. And if you decide to leave and erase everything – do so.

Independent creator

We're proud to be a small business. That means we listen to our community. That means we're not chasing short-term profits or rapid growth to inflate the company's valuation.

We have enough funds to host Lightpad indefinitely, but your support would really help to speed things up.

All platforms

Our web app works on all platforms. It's safer than a normal app too. Learn how to install it.

Willing to listen

We run a community on Reddit to listen to your requests and critique. We're also present on Twitter / Instagram / Facebook

We acknowledge that there's plenty of other productivity apps. If you need a feature that we don't have – we would be grateful if you would poke us on social networks (in the footer) or by email.
