The pre-installed iOS Calendar app leaves much to be desired in its current form- especially when it comes to appearance. That’s where Agenda Calendar (universal) from Savvy Apps comes in, improving not only the style but the functionality of the native calender.
There are a lot of perks to using Agenda Calendar. First, navigation couldn’t be easier as the app is completely controlled with a simple, intuitive swipe-and-touch based control system. When the app opens on the current week, a finger swipe to the left will broaden the overview by taking users to the current month while a swipe to the right will pull up the current date and list all events for the day. It will also sync Microsoft Exchange, Google Calendar and the Calender for iOS, so everything can be added through one’s default desktop calender, and instantly be updated on their iOS device.
As big of a perk as the simplified navigation is, the Event creation is even better. Users can set the time and date for the beginning and end of an event, choose whether or not an alert is needed and whether the event should be repeated. The biggest perk, though, is the contacts space. Agenda Calendar will tap right into a user’s Contact Book and allow contacts to be added to the event. This makes texting or emailing those contacts simple after the event is created and has templates created to confirm the event, alert the person of an arrival or warn the contact about running late.
The only downside – and its a small one – is Agenda Calendar will only sync back as far as January 2011. This means that even if users sync to a calendar with pre-existing events prior to January 2011, they won’t able to access them through the app. This may not be a problem for many, but it’s a shortcoming nonetheless.
Overall, Agenda Calendarhits the mark beautifully. The sleek interface, syncing abilities and feature-packed Event creator makes this a must-have organization app for anyone without a personal assistant. This app is perfect for anyone who is constantly on the go and appreciates being organized as simply as possible.
