Alternatives to iOS 7 Calendar – Apps

Miss the iOS 6 calendar? Dismayed at the Apple crappy form over function in the new iOS 7 Calendar? Try these apps. They restore the ‘quick glance’ overview Ive took away in iOS 7. Some apps have a good week overview, some have the preview pane ala iOS 6 and a lot of apps don’t have the stupid scrolling up and down that iOS 7 has which makes it a pain in the ass to plan anything with the calendar app. Click the links below to get a closer look at these apps

  1. Short but sweet post. The stock Calendar app is the biggest disappointment for me with iOS7. I bought my iPhone 3G for the calendar in the first place (specifically the convenient list view). It’s ridiculous that they crippled the functionality of this app and the unnecessary spacing between fields when editing an event is ridiculous. Im sticking with Agenda Calendar 4. I don’t have much hope that Apple will fix these issues.

    As a general comment, I’ve noticed that in iOS7 apps (stock and 3rd party) there are extra steps to do the same things I’ve always done (returning to my Kindle library for example). The OS looks nice, but other than the Control Center, I’m not impressed much.
