Tempo is great but the upgrade is disappointing
I must say that I really liked the previous version of this app and it has been one of my main replacements for Apple's calendar app in iOS 7. I really liked the look and design of Tempo as it was very usable and had a great list view (which Apple dropped from their Calendar app for reasons I can't imagine), a nice agenda view, and a very nice month view. However, I just updated and was disappointed to see that Tempo now uses the new iOS 7 default font which is much less readable. Even the nice, simple touch of an orange line between the images and the list, that helped to brand the app and that gave a nice division to the layout, was taken away in favor of the Apple's minimalist design. There is also slightly less space between items which, while showing more items on the screen, now feels more crowded and is a little harder to quickly scan because of diminished visual contrast. The new calendar view is also less attractive and less clear with so much white space it's harder to see groupings. The gray background for the days of week at the top of the calendar has been removed, as has the nice gray background on the events that distinguished it from the calendar, so that the screen is now nearly all the same color and brightness. It also had squares dividing the days and a nicer highlight for current and selected days which is now missing, making it less attractive and less usable. It is disappointing to see app after app come out with designs that are often less clear, that suffer from insufficient contrast, and that are (dare I say) somewhat boring, as they follow Apple's "upgrade" with their apparent war on buttons, decoration, and even character. I am a designer and am all for simplification, and I love a minimalist approach. I actually really like the Apple font (Helevetica Nueue) in many of it's uses, but I think that Tempo had a more usable and clear design when they did their own thing. Fortunately I was able downgrade to the old version that I still had on my Mac so I can continue to use the older design. In fairness, I see that the new version shows the start and ending times on the left, and I assume there are other well deserved improvements to functionality. However, I use the calendar to easily track what I need to do and truly appreciated Tempo's previous design that made this easy and pleasurable. In closing, I hope I am not coming across too harshly or overly subjective, but I do think that I am speaking for a number of other users who are also struggling with the iOS 7 update and the impact it is having on the new wave of app updates and redesigns. I hope that the Tempo team will use this feedback as constructive and see it as a compliment to their own design sensibilities.

OMG you didn't make it look like iOS7?
10/30/2013 OMG you didn't just change the look of the calendar? I just downloaded the app because it had the calendar with squares and boxes. Now you have numbers floating in the air like the iOS 7 version which I hate and decided todo enlists your app. PLEASE HO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS DESIGN. -------------------------------- I heard about this app while I was searching the web reading about how unhappy a lot of people are with the REDESIGN of iOS 7. I like the new features but hate the redesign. So while I heard about your app I read a few reviews and while a couple of people unhappy and were waiting for some minor fixes I decided to give it a try. I just downloaded it a few days ago and I haven't had a chance to use it completely but I can tell you I LOVE IT!!! I just could not get use to Apples redesign and you app has made me happy. Thank you!!!

So smart!!!
Love this app. It works so well & is so smart. Thankfully Tempo arrived just in time to replace the ios7 calendar which I find nearly impossible. The choices of views are great and I love the way you can scroll across days & months. I have recommended Tempo to all my iphone pals & they are as enthusiastic as I am. Thank you!
