No one carries a day planner anymore and it is very hard to find calendars anywhere these days. As these visual representations of the progression of the days begin to disappear from our workstations and office desks, they have been replaced with smartphone based calendar apps instead.
These apps are quite versatile too. They show us the date, help us set alarms and reminders for anniversaries and birthdays and even help us save to-do lists and notes for remembrance.
Here are the top calendar apps for iPhone that are the most functional.
1. Agenda Calendar
Customizing the calendar app is one feature that most such apps don’t offer. However, the Agenda Calendar helps you clear the clutter away from your calendar app with the help of 12 layout options. Each one of these are sleek and present you with only the information that you need and hides the information that you don’t need to see sitting at the top of the app.

3. Awesome Calendar
It would be very easy to deem an app that calls itself “awesome” arrogant, but the Awesome Calendar does exactly what its name promises with a built in note maker and a to do list, a number of ways to display information and an interface that will make you look forward to organizing your calendar.

6. Pocket Informant
