Apple is currently promoting Vantage Calendar as its Free App of the Week on the iOS App Store. Notable for its novel visual approach to calendar presentation, the app also features a number of lively design options for highlighting upcoming events in the user's schedule.

Central to Vantage is a 3D vertical timeline that users scroll up and down to move forwards and backwards through their calendar. Navigation is also mirrored by a horizontally scrolling strip across the top of the interface, which can be expanded to a monthly view with a single tap, or two taps for a more detailed view that fills the screen.

Adding an upcoming event is achieved by scrolling to the appropriate day and tapping the plus symbol, which causes an event card to expand fullscreen, where options exist to adjust the usual event options, as well as apply a color, sticker, and even a particular font to the event to make it more prominent in the timeline.

Vantage also includes a 2D horizontally scrolling hourly view of each day of the week, as well as a vertically scrolling flat panel view of the days ahead, both of which are accessible via a tab on the right of the main screen.

In addition, several different color themes can be found in the app's settings, which include a number of other visually impacting options.

Usually $3.99, Vantage Calendar is currently free on the App Store and is available to download for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

Fun fact I just made up: Vantage Calendar was originally going to be named Calendar Hero.

It's the calendar used in a galaxy a long time ago and far, far away.

Nice work, Vantage. I appreciate their exploration of the Z-axis. Offers some interesting potential.

That said, I keep trying other calendaring apps. But I keep coming back to the stock iOS offering. I'm so engrained/entrenched in Apple's Calendar/ecosystem that it will likely be a challenge for me to make it my daily. But, I'll give it a whirl.

Maybe the happy medium would be Apple implementing Z into their calendar view options. ;)

Try Fantastical. It's a beautiful marriage of Reminders and Calendar.

I think I've tried two dozen calendar apps by now, and find every one of them lacking one way or another. I downloaded this Vantage one and just found the interface a bit distracting.

In the end, I'm just using the native Calendar app and sometimes Fantastical (which has a nice ability to duplicate events).
yeah, I'm in the same whale-watching boat as you. i find most of the other calendar app interfaces kind of excess. they don't add anything for me, and just kind of get in the way.
