Agenda Calendar, a popular and top 20 best selling productivity app on the App Store (currently sitting at #13), has just received its biggest and most anticipated update thus far. With version 2.0, Agenda not only receives several new features and tweaks, but more importantly, it’ll now work on your iPad natively as well. Aside from its minimalistic design, the most desirable aspect about Agenda Calendar is its lightning quick navigation, which is primarily achieved via up/down and left/right swipes. There’s no doubt that once you get used to how quick and easy it is to use, you’ll never go back to the iOS’ stock calendar app. More info and demo video after the gap.

Think about your tried and true paper calendar and then look at your typical app options. Busy, overcomplicated, and just plain not useful.

Agenda supports Google Calendar, Microsoft Exchange, MobileMe, etc. by using the local iOS calendar app. All calendars in the iOS calendar will be available in Agenda.
On the iPhone, get back to “today” by using the “Go To” function in the toolbar or more quickly by tapping the status bar. The status bar is the top black bar on your screen, which shows the time and battery life. For the iPad, use the “Target” icon to do the same.
Apple only allows events that have no attendees to be edited. If the event is editable, you’ll see an “edit” button in the event view.
DATE ON BADGE?
If you turn on the “Date on Badge” in Agenda’s settings, the number in the icon badge is today’s date.:) Apple requires it to look the way it does.
