Simply Gorgeous Apps to Get Your Life in Sync

DENVER ( TheStreet) -- Now that The Cloud is so trendy, mobile app developers are figuring out how to make it work for people who need to keep all their apps, devices and life in sync.

The gorgeously minimalist Tempus Event Calendar for iOS shuns excessive separator lines and busy icons. It simply tells users what's on the schedule. Tempus is based on the original Calvetica app, which developer Mysterious Trousers has since added many more features, like snoozable alerts, alternative views and a cloud-syncing task list.

Users complained so developers stripped it back down to create Tempus. Thankfully, they left something users can't live without: Syncing with Google Calendar, MobileMe and Exchange. $2.99 +http://bit.ly/zcVM11
