Easy to view 5/5
So far I have found it easy to view my past appointments and schedule a new event. I use this on my iPad.
The Best Calendar! 5/5
By Franciscan Religious Priest
This is the best calendar I’ve ever used for iOS devices! Very clean view for daily and weekly especially... and extremely very easy to use AND it’s constantly improving to be even better.
Works Well, But some Alarms are Inconsistent 4/5
By Wyoming Man
I use the Readdle bundle. The apps generally work well.
The occasional IOS upgrade system issues seem to be addressed reasonably soon. Generally pleased with the bundle.
Annoying quirks 1/5
I have begrudgingly used this app for many years and it’s quirks are very hard to get past for me.
If any event description has a number or word referring to a specific day (Christmas, Saturday, etc) it will automatically change the date of your appointment. You can not override this and it’s sooooo frustrating. So now, every Christmas party that falls on a non-Christmas day defaults to be scheduled on Christmas.
Have a planning meeting in room 205? The time of your meeting is now 2:05 regardless of what time you told it to be.
Working on “Saturday’s event” in a meeting with your co worker on Thursday? Now it’s on Saturday.
Great personal assistant 5/5
Not only is it great at keeping a detailed record of my schedule it’s flexible enough that I can always know when I need to do something. I have been saved from my superiors many a times by keeping track of my schedule with this app!
What a calendar app! 5/5
I love Apple, but not the iOS Calendar. This Readdle Calendar app is the best Calendar app I've ever used, Windows or Mac! It is intuitive, easy to create events, change events or make corrections quickly. It is attractive as well. With over 200 apps on my iOS devices, it ranks right at the top for performance and appearance. It syncs well with my Mac calendars, and iPhone.
Exchange feature doesn’t really work yet 2/5
Though it connects to exchange, it gives a “folder save operation failed” if you try to edit to change its default PURPLE color. Readdle support says this is something they can’t fix yet, so it’s not really ready for use.
review easy to use. 5/5
efficient. best calendar app I've found
Apple Calendar on steroids 5/5
I really like the Apple Calendar app, but Calendars 5 ups the ante. There’s added functionality, and it automatically converts your old Calendar. This is iOS (not combined macOS/iOS like Apple Calendar), but looks and works great!
rather good, could be exceptional... 4/5
Truly wish the day number would appear on the app... so if you simply glanced at the app, you would immediately know the day of the month without having to actually open the app. Apple’s own calendar program and multiple competitors have this capability. Adding this would then make this app exceptional. Until then, it’s one rather good. Wish the company would seriously consider.
The Best Calendar 5/5
Have used a lot of calendar programs over my time through business needs as well as family. This one, by far, is the best I have found. With a visual of a monthly calendar that shows most all of the appointments for each day of the month ( up to five each day) and available to pull data and visually understand whether it is from work or home. As well, it can be shared by the family and everyone gets updated when a family appointment is entered or updated.
Best organized calendar ever! 5/5
By RB live
Hands down, this is my most used app. Extremely helpful!
Almost most perfect, except 4/5
In the day view or week view, 15 minutes events represented as a 30 minutes events in term of bar length, which really bother me a lot.
Very good, except 5/5
Just wish I could search on word in title.
Tasks are not good 2/5
I’m a HUGE tasks guy and I was looking for an app to combine tasks and calendars. But the tasks section needs plenty of some work. Please improve the layout of the tasks and better identify reminders and descriptions. Maybe label or organize by due dates/reminders.
No longer working 1/5
Can’t create new events, or edit prior ones. Used to be my favorite app. Now I need an alternative even though I paid for this.
Takes care of my essentials 5/5
They don’t force you to subscribe. The app is well thought out. It syncs with gmail. I’ve had a good time with it.
Finally, a calendar that makes sense!
I need this app for mac.
Transfer of appointments 1/5
When I bought Readdle 5, and I’ve had Readdle for years, it did not transfer any appointments and information from earlier 2019 or appointments in 2020.On top of that it deleted my old calendar. I was so unimpressed.

Handy Calendar and Low Price 5/5
This calendar has it’s on task management and it works very well.
Change it back please! 2/5
Loved this app. Been using it for years. However they change the way the color layout and display on the month view of the calendar. It now makes it very difficult to view at a glance. I’m In the market for a new calendar app now.
I teach calendar workshops 5/5
I do time management mentoring and calendaring workshops, and I use Calendars 5 as my primary mobile app on both my phone and iPad. I recommend it to my attendees as a more comprehensive and functional calendar app than most, and I personally love how intuitive the controls are. I have 15+ calendars that I sync with it. No problems.
Edit: after years of continued use, multiple phone upgrades, iOS updates, and use across tablets and phones within a family of 5, I still love this app. My kids use it on their devices and my wife and I do all of our weekly planning through this app. Highly recommend!
Can't track invitees using the local iOS calendar which makes this app useless to me.
Without ability to invite and track invitees I can't use this app.
Simple to use 5/5
I’m older and had tried other calendars, and found them confusing to navigate. Calendar 5 was simple to use. I’ve never missed an appointment.
Works great! 5/5
Best thing for me is sync with both my Gmail personal calendar and my Exchange work calendar. Easy to move events between the two.
Old design is still better 3/5
Even though they took a step back, the old design was still better
Love it 4/5
Loving this app and the display. Only thing is I wish it was brighter colors like the google calendars. Love the ease of use and display.
Mostly awesome 4/5
Amazing app, love the different views. Seems like it’s sometimes dropping some of my events but I can’t confirm. Still use fantastical in the background for its powerful url scheme.
Love it 100% 5/5
The user interface is beautiful, but under the hood it’s very well designed and powerful. After several years of use, I am still discovering ways to customize it to my liking.
My favorite feature is the search. I can locate meetings, vacations, people, whatever, in an instant. I love this feature.
The ability to easily integrate task lists with calendar views is great. It’s makes shopping or running errands a breeze. I like how I can check off items, but the app can remember checked items. This enables me to put things back on the grocery list, for example, each time I go.
The few times I needed help, their support team was all over it. Also important is that the app is regularly updated, which makes me feel good that this is a great investment for the long term.
I’ve looked at many schedule/calendar apps, but for me, this is the one that keeps me on schedule!
More colors 4/5
By Old Dog learning...
Would like events throughout the day to be in different. Would make events easier to distinguish.
Apple Watch Cellular 3/5
It would be nice if this app is able to stand alone with Apple Watch Cellular version. This app on the Apple watch only works when you are tethered to your cell phone via bluetooth.
Holiday clutter 2/5
Calendar shows every holiday known to man and I don’t want them cluttering up the view. When I turn them off in settings they are still there.
Old format was Better 1/5
I’ve been using Calendar 5 on my phone for many years. It looked just like the iOS calendar on my computer & iPad. I gave it 5 stars. With the upgrade, it no longer looks like my iOS calendars. The all day appointments all look whitish while the lesser appointments stand out. Just the opposite of my Apple calendars. Can I get the old version back?
Like it But 4/5
This is a great app with a few issues. With multiple calendars and pathways to google calendar you can have duplicates in your computer. If the program identified duplicate calendars it should combine them instead of duplication. Also a desktop version to edit the sync
Needs more Colors!!! 4/5
I love this app but it needs more colors for color coding! I have 7 people I am keeping track of and there just aren’t enough color options for me, esp since a few of the colors look very similar to one another! Can a girl get pink?!
The calendar worked fine until they decided to change things. With the unnecessary update it became difficult to use, visually confusing and not user friendly. I’m currently looking for a different replacement.
Best calendar app on the market, ruined. 2/5
Please bring back solid color event icons for full day events. The format now makes it nearly indistinguishable between full day events and timed events. A perfect app as been ruined by a poor decision to swap color guidelines.
Disappearing data from my calendar 2/5
I went to my august calendar of 2019, I found my data I had enter had disappeared, has anyone else experience this , if so how do I retrieve my past data and/or is this common or expected in this app.
Recent updates = loss of one star 4/5
Please bring back the color blocks! As someone with impaired eyesight, it was incredibly useful to see large colors on my calendar at a glance, and then zoom in for text details only if I needed to.
Also, with the Apple Reminders problems that came with the ios13 update, I’d love to have a recommended third-party reminders/to-do lists app for integration with this app. I have been a fan of Readdle for quite some time and want to continue using it, but must have that integration that used to exist with the native Reminders app on my phone.
Buggy with IOS update. 1/5
By Black Dog 1979
I updated to IOS 13.1.1 and can no longer add new events, change date, or time. If this isn’t corrected with an update soon I’m going to have to start looking for a new calendar. This was my favorite calendar app until the update.
Random timing of notifications 4/5
This is by far my favorite calendar app in terms of interface and usability. I would give it 5 stars, but for the fact that it randomly sends alerts at the wrong times, sometimes days after the event has already happened. I contacted the developer about this a couple of times, but the problem has persisted. If they ever fix this, the app will be close to perfect. I hope they will also release a Mac OS version.
UPDATE: the app is still failing to send alerts in a timely fashion. Just today I received an alert that was supposed to have been delivered two days ago. This is the only app of any kind that I use that has this problem, so I really don’t understand why the problem has not been fixed.
By le veno
First, I’m loving this calendar. Thank you for all the work that has been put into this. Still waiting waiting on the MacOS version 😏😊...
My suggestion/request is adding an attachment (I.e. picture, document, etc) option to an event. It would help to associate important attachments to an event and easy access to it. If possible, when an accepted invite is confirmed, they will have access to the attachment. The owner has the option to allow certain invitees access to the files for security reason.
Best calendar app out there.
Terrible Update 3/5
No, no, and no. There’s issues syncing in iOS 12 and iOS 13. Also, please put back colored boxes for all-day events - this is the number one reason why I stayed with the app. I appreciate the aesthetics of the new update but don’t mess up usability!
Sync Problems 2/5
The calendar app should sync every time the app is opened.
New entries and changes made on Google Calendar from another device may not be shown on Calendar 5 for hours unless it is manually synced.
This is unacceptable and has forced me to go back to using the Google Calendar App.
Not syncing 2/5
iOS 13 may be part of problem but this occurred randomly before. Entries on cal 5 iPhone xr not syncing to iPad Air 3rd generation. Both have current updates. Forced all sync under settings but does not update , nor do the iPhone cal 5 entries appear on google calendar.
Have used this app for years and I appreciate it except when it randomly does this. Only resolution is deleting and reinstall.
I’ve kept because I have many tasks throughout the year also entered on Readdle 5. Now back to google calendar with no tasks appearing. Hopefully my email to tech support with photos elicits an update. Thank you!
Best Planner-Like App I’ve Found ... 5/5
I’ve tried many apps that advertise all the functionality and benefits as a book-type planner and a productivity app and have found Calendars 5 to be the best by far.
