iPhone: By their nature, calendar apps tend to be a little complicated and busy. Peek is an app that simplifies your calendar down to just the most essential details and uses a completely gesture-based interface so buttons don’t get in the way.
Peek is a bit like Clear in that it’s main aim is to provide a decidedly simple design over a large set of features. Instead of a bunch of buttons, you’ll use gestures to get around in Peek. This take a while to get used to because not everything is intuitive. Tapping and holding a day adds an event, a swipe views the length and location, an awkward “shading” gesture reveals the time, and everything else is done with pulls, swipes, and presses. It takes a while to get used to the control scheme, but once you get it, Peek works well.
That said, Peek’s design mantra echoes in its features as well. For example, you can’t invite people to events or get directions to them. For power-users, Peek simply won’t do the trick, but if you don’t need a ton of features, Peek is a bright and fun way to view your calendar.
