It’s that time of the week! Those who like planning out their daily or weekly routines will love what Apple has in store as part of its Free App of the Week promo for iPhone and iPad users. Usually retailing for $3.99, you can download this app absolutely free till Thursday.

We’ve seen quite a few paid apps ending up on our doors for free every week, but seldom to we see productivity titles being offered. Well, that stands changed this week with Vantage Calendar dropping it’s price tag completely. As the name itself suggests, sure it’s a calendar app, but it’s not your typical run-of-the-mill planner app. We see why.

Calendar apps are either built around a ton of features and functions, or are designed to be extremely subtle and simple for the end-user. Vantage Calendar does neither of those things, and carves its own direction by bringing in a visualization scheme meant to entice anyone with a planning-fetish.

In our view a calendar should visualize someones life, so we set out to build the most visual calendar ever. Vantage is loaded with design options like colors, stickers and fonts so that you can let the events you care about stand out and get a great view over the days to come.

With colors, stickers, and a visual perspective, it literally constructs your plans in a way making you feel like you’re walking through a physical diary.

Stunning themes and visuals aside, the app offers support for syncing with a bunch of services as well.

It syncs with Google Calendar, iCloud, Outlook, Facebook Events and just about any other calendar that supports iPhone or iPad.

In all honesty, Vantage Calendar is more of an organizer that will appeal to a user-base that is more casual in its plans as compared to users looking to plan out their work routines and meetings, well unless retro stickers and banners are too good to pass up.

Some users will actually pay good money for Vantage Calendar, and if you’re wondering why, how about trying it out right now? It is free after all, but remember that the offer will last till next Thursday only.
