Week Agenda Ultimate - App Review



Oh no, not another calendar App... do I hear you say? In all honesty, that was a bit my reaction as well. The difference here is that less is more.

If you are already frustrated with the iOS 7 calendar, especially with the lack of a week view, and don't need loads of bells and whistles then, this is just the vanilla flavour you are looking for.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The welcome page for the App contains useful information on shortcuts that will make your use easier; it is well worth taking note of them.

What you see is a week view, which can easily go to the preceding, or next, week by simply sliding across the page. There is no attempt at making it appear that you are flicking a page, not the attendant noise; simplicity works.

Having read the introduction with the shortcuts, you will learn that swiping with 2 fingers gives a month view, and three an annual one.

To add an event, simply press and hold on the day, and tap on it to edit an entry.

Cost
There is a nominal $1 charge for the App.

Indispensability
It really is so much better than the App that comes with your iOS device. If you are not already using a sophisticated calendar and task manager, this is the one for you.

Dependability
Absolutely no problems.

Security
In order for the App to function, you need to let it have access to your iOS calendar.

    Very incidentally calendars could get unselected, so it seemed that the events had disappeared. This could be fixed by selecting the calendars again in the calendars selection dialog (accessible from the option bar). This update prevents it from happening.
