Awesome Calendar Lite review

Create events, reminders, notes, and more with this powerful app.

Awesome Calendar Lite is an attractive calendar app for iOS devices. The calendar app market is crowded with many quality options, and while Awesome Calendar Lite didn't totally knock our socks off, it is worth a look if you haven't settled on a calendar yet.

Awesome Calendar Lite has an interface that's fairly easy to navigate, though we found that on our iPhone 5 many things were smaller than we'd have liked; if you have thick fingers, you might find yourself touching the wrong thing quite often. Awesome Calendar Lite is no slouch when it comes to features, though, with multiple calendar views, notes, reminders, and lots of options for customization. Best of all, many of these features sync with their native Apple counterparts; when we set a reminder, it showed up in our Reminders app and then alerted us on our MacBook at the appropriate time. Since this is the Lite version of the app, there are a few limitations; there are ads, the notes don't sync with Notes via iCloud, and you can't create repeating events. Still the Lite version has plenty of functionality, and it's good on its own or as a way to preview the app before paying for the full version.

Overall, we liked Awesome Calendar Lite, and we think it's worth checking out if you're in the market for a new calendar app. It didn't woo us away from the app that we were already using, but its multitude of features and customization options make it an attractive choice.
