We already had Square Mountains’ gorgeous Peek Calendar app on our radar to feature in an upcoming piece on beautifully designed iPhone apps, but we had to let you know about it a bit early. Why? Because the price of this fantastic iPhone app was just dropped from $2.99 to $0.
Peek Calendar is a perfect example of what creative and talented developers can do on iOS.
Calendar apps are typically boring and uninspired, but Peek is a fresh new take on scheduling. By combining a unique layout, gesture controls, nice bright colors and a range of solid functionality, Square Mountains has created an app that could very well rocket to the top of the list of your favorite iPhone apps.
From the app’s description in the App Store:
Peek is a quick and simple to use calendar for your iPhone. It is designed to be glanceable and intuitive. Peek presents the essentials in a easy to understand manner, without overwhelming you with data you might not need for an on-the-go experience.
Life can be stressful, why not [manage] it in a slightly more playful way. Peek is designed to offer a fluid, fast and fun way to have a glance at your schedule. Along with a fresh look into the user interface, it introduces new behaviors for interaction to make the experience more delightful. Try the Peek’s shading gesture or simply shake the phone to see some Peek’s life events.
Peek Calendar is not for power users who need to see as much information as possible with a single glance. Instead, it’s for the rest of us, who want function as well as form.
There’s no telling how long this great app will be free, however, so iPhone users will want to download this great app as soon as possible. You’ll find a link to the Peek Calendar App Store page below in our source section.
UPDATE: It looks like the free promo ended in the early afternoon on Wednesday. For those interested in the app though, $2.99 is more than fair.
