In a recent feature covering 5 gorgeous free iPhone apps, we discussed a fantastic new calendar app called Magneto that looks to put a new spin on the traditional calendar format. As impressive as this closed beta app is shaping up to be, there are still some more traditional calendar apps that do a terrific job of organizing our lives. Now, one of the best — and most expensive — options out there for the iPhone and iPad has been made available for free for a limited time.
Calendars 5 by Readdle is a gorgeous universal iOS app that looks great on the iPhone and iPad alike, and it includes plenty of smart features to help users organize their lives.
