For many people, the calendar is the most important productivity tool on their iPhone. No matter how busy you may be, it’s important to keep track of your schedule so that you’re prepared for what lies ahead. Between multiple work trips and planning for a wedding, there are number of appointments and events I need to keep straight, and I rely on my calendar to do so.
I’ve never cared much for the first-party Calendars app, and have jumped from a number of third-party apps such as Agenda, Fatastical and Calendars+ (a few of which I’ve reviewed on AppStorm). But since its release in February, I’ve been using Sunrise Calendar as my go-to schedule maintenance tool, which I’ve found to be an interestingly new take on how a iOS calendar app functions.

I’m a calendar junkie. The way some people collect to-do apps, I tend to have lots of different calendars all over my iPhone, iPad and Mac, and very few stick. I’ll use one for a month or two, then off to the next or back to an old favorite. I have lots of different options.
But one that has stuck on my Mac is Fantastical. Not only is it quick and easy to use, but it’s just so natural. When I was contacted by the developers and given a sneak peek at the app, well I just had to jump on it. Will the magic transfer to my iPhone or is Fantastical a Mac-only purchase? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
There are a lot of calendar apps, but it’s hard to get all of your events in one place. Finding a single app that syncs with everything is a big enough challenge. Now try presenting all those events and information from all over in a truly meaningful way, and you have a real job on your hands.
More than just a calendar app, Cue: Know What’s Next will sync not only all of your events in one place but just about any information you could need during your day. What Cue does is give context to your events, turning a calendar reminder into a chance to connect and engage. (more…)
While you can add all your friends’ birthdays to your calendar, if you just want to see a list of birthdays, your calendar app is going to make that a job of work, no matter how organized you are. Besides Notes or a good ol’ sheet of paper, organizing of all of your friends’ birthdays, your favorite team’s games or your work deadlines isn’t easy.
Pronto isn’t a calendar, though. More of a reminder app, Pronto gives you a place to organize all your big events. With the ability to create alarms and add to-do lists, this trimmed down little app packs a pretty big organizational punch. (more…)
In my experience, there are two types of calendar people: those who are constantly looking to improve their setup to manage their appointments even more efficiently, and then there are those who don’t understand what the fuss is all about.
Usually, people from one category would use a very different calendar app than people from the second group because specific demands are different. Surprisingly enough, there is a universal app that fits the needs of all. Folks, meet Tempus.
There are a lot of really cool apps available for the iPhone. Hear a song you really like but don’t know what it is? Fire up Shazam or SoundHound. See an actor in a movie but not sure what their name is? IMDb has got you covered. With all these cool apps available, it’s easy to overlook certain ones that you may use often, but don’t realize better alternatives exist — especially if the app in question is the built-in Calendar.
While it serves its necessary function, the Calendar app doesn’t really offer the polish and user experience we’re used to seeing from Apple. Enter Agenda, a minimally designed and dead-simple to use calendar app for every iPhone owner. If I’ve peaked your interest, feel free to hit the jump to find out more.

It’s Productivity Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all week we’re going to have app reviews and how-tos, all based on getting things done. Plus, we’ll even pull some classic reviews out of the archives. Stay tuned all week!
One of the great things I love about my iPhone is the ability to stay organized. When trying to coordinate schedules between myself and my wife, it’s so crucial that we know what is going on throughout each day. And now with a baby, it is that much more important that we work together efficiently.
The iPhone calendar app is okay — it gets the job done — but like anything else, I always try to see if I can find something different; something that will do the job just a little bit better. Week Calendar does that and more. It packs a ton of features into the calendar and I honestly believe this could replace the official calendar app. Let’s get into it more after the break.
