Share This:


Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.

Our picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every week.  Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is Calendars 5 – Event and Task Manager with Google Calendar Sync by Readdle.  Calendars 5 has been the measuring stick for iOS calendar apps since its introduction.  It’s so powerful and easy to use, it just might be what the iPad should have shipped with as the default calendar app. More than just a calendar app, it also supports and excels at tasks and events, making it an invaluable productivity tool.


With its natural language input, entering tasks and calendar events are as easy as speaking what’s on your mind.  The iPad’s larger screen size is the prefect display to manage all your scheduling needs by making it easier to focus on what’s important.  The multiple calendar views provide a quick overview of day week and monthly views, as well as a split view listing of all your events.  There is a perfect view for whatever suits your needs.

Some additional features that make Calendars 5 the premier calendar app include…

◆ Works online and offline
Create, edit and delete events or tasks whenever you need it. All changes will be synced back to your account once you are online.

◆ All the features you love
Create custom recurring events (yoga every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday), get reminders or set custom alerts, invite people to your events and more.

◆ Act as you feel it
Intuitively create events with just one tap in your calendar. Drag and Drop tasks and events, swipe to switch between days and weeks, return to your ‘Today’ schedule with one tap.
