    super amazing head shrinker/color changer
    little rock
    i am a hair stylist. i would love an app that i could more or less run my business with. mainly what i would like is to be able to easily store and find client records (color formulas, late arrivals, no shows, phone numbers, birthdays, etc.). but it would be really nifty to also be able to book and view appointments in smaller increments of time and shorter days than what the native calendar app offers. as in, like from 10 am to 6 pm, every 15 minutes. kind of the way it would look in a computer booking system. i don't know if this is clear or doable, or even interesting to anyone but me, but i sure would appreciate any kind of insight (if such a thing exists already) or ideas ( if i should just try to do it in evernote or something).

    thanks. :D

    Take a guess
    I believe the calendar should support intervals as small as you would like. At least it does on the Hero so the Eris should too. I often set up 0 time appointments (Start time 7PM End time 7PM for example). It really sucks that you can't focus on a specific period of time like on other devices - I combat this by using the agenda view.

    I keep client records using AK Notepad - though it gets a bit messy. My record keeping need is not as robust as yours though. I pretty much just type in what the customer says as they tell me. Then I use the bottom half of the note for tracking trouble shooting steps - fixed issues etc. I've been considering switching to Note everything because it provides a little bit more organization but there is also a few things that I don't like about it.

    Sounds like just using a netbook or laptop would be easier to me....
