Who says calendars can't be fun?
Vantage takes the mundane out of scheduling. In part because it works well and is easy to use, but also because of useful visual cues like colors, stickers, book covers and stacks. Visual cues makes understanding a long list of stuff easier, and can help you understand your daily life better. Sort of like doodles in a physical book can help you remember notes.
Picked by Apple as the "App of the Day" on the App Store in 2019.
Stacks are a really cool way of summarising days. It reduces clutter and visualises how much is on your plate. The higher the stack, the more things you got planned. Tap any stack to peek it’s contents.
To-dos live in little notebooks right next to the main timeline. To set a due date, just drag a to-do and drop it on a date. You also get to customise your books with a pre-set book cover, or even a photo from your camera roll.
Color Tags and Stickers
Visual cues makes long lists of stuff so much easier to read. Pick from a variety of funky stickers or color tags to let events either pop or feel connected.

Ratings and Reviews
Best looking calendar app out there!
This app has the best layout/theme I’ve seen on any calendar or to-do app. It is very clean, unique, and easy to read. I like that it is compatible with iPad as well. I do have few suggestions for what I’d like to see on this app. The look and feel of the app is such a big deal to me, which is why I bought the full version very shortly after downloading. To be honest I’m tired of looking at the boring, white background with black text and numbers on a not-so-versatile calendar app. That being said, I’d love it if there was more customization for the colors of the themes. Also, if you were able to pick a particular font for your default font (it makes me not want to use the feature so much because you have to click it each time) along with changing the default font size. One last thing, I feel that the to-do books could use some of the same originality and customization options that the calendar does. Other than those couple of things you guys have made a really great app!
Pretty blown away by this little app
I have used iPhone native calendar, google calendar, and planner pro over the years. I found this, stumbled onto this app, and thought I would check it out. Frankly I liked the graphite clean look of the screen I found in the App Store and thought I would check it out. Wow what a neat app. Clever and stylish in looks but very capable in what it does = a great calendar AND Task manager in one fun little app. I don’t normally get impressed by iPhone apps, but this one surprised me. I almost didn’t download it because of the in app purchase price of $9.99, I was concerned that it might be some kind of silly monthly fee, but it was a one time purchase that opens up all the features. By the way they give you free access to begin with so you can try them all out, they call it points, when you get to zero points you have to make a decision as to whether you want to unlock all the features by paying the one time fee. Needless to say I paid one time fee and I am quite happy with what the app does. The only issue I am having, it is probably not the app, I am having a bit of a battery drain issue. It’s not a significant drain but it is a noticeable drain so I will continue to watch it. I am running an iPhone 6 with a replaced battery.
Would be great but...
When I first downloaded this app a few months ago I was so excited to use it. The design is great and I love the integration of to do lists and calendar in one place. However I have noticed two major issues with the app which have occurred again and again. The first is that when you cross time zones the app will randomly change the time of events. I am a graduate student and frequently travel from one time zone to another to visit family and friends, and I began to notice that events in my vantage calendar were changing times. At first I thought I input them incorrectly; however, since my calendar syncs with my Apple calendar, I was able to confirm that I had not entered the events incorrectly as the correct times were noted in the Apple calendar. The second issue is that the app frequently loses to do items or events altogether. Again I was able to confirm that this was not my error since the numerous reminders and events which Vantage has lost are still in my Apple calendar and reminders apps. These issues are huge. I have almost missed multiple meetings and deadlines because I was relying on the accuracy of my calendar and almost missed a flight because of these issues. Honestly I was so excited about this app but now I wish I had not purchased it. Until they fix these issues I would say that you shouldn’t waste your money.
