Big thanks to Agenda ($0.99), this week’s sponsor. Agenda has replaced Apple’s Calendar app on my iPhone, and earned a spot on the home screen. Here’s why I love it, and why you will, too.


Call me fickle, but looks count. Fortunately, Agenda is beautiful. It offers legible black text on a field of white. While other calendar apps get “cutsey,” the folks at savvy apps went in the other, and preferable, direction.


Agenda offers year, month, week, day and event views while the navigation buttons, edit/create button and settings button remain consistent. Color-coded dots identify each event’s parent calendar and nearly everything you’ll want to do can be accomplished with one hand. Heck, with one thumb.

Finally, it works with MobileMe calendar, GCal, Exchange…in fact, it finds and works with whatever calendar you happen to have set up in your iPhone’s Mail, Contacts, Calendars settings.

Go get it!

What are you waiting for? At $0.99, a calendar that looks this good and works this well ought to be on your iPhone.
