    Default iOS 7 Calendar Month Grid with Agenda View, What happened to it???????

    So I am huge fan of the native iOS calendar until iOS 7. What happened to the view where you saw a grid of the month on the top half of the screen with the agenda for the day selected on the bottom half of the screen?????????? This was the most used part of the native calendar for me. I see they have repalced it with a week selection grid at the top and the days agenda below it. I WANT TO SEE IT LIKE IT WAS! It is frustrating that they would take away a feature. Add the later that is fine but don't take away what was there especially from time management application such as calendar. I'm trying to force myself to get used to it but it is not going very well and I still miss the view we had with iOS for a very long time. Can anyone shed any light on why this is happened? How many are upset about this? Voice your opinion at Apple - Feedback and maybe they will somehow bring it back. However my experience with Apple is that they never bring anything back so I guess we are all stuck. I hate the thought of using (on a regular basis) a third party calendar app. Just doesn't make since I have a native app that 'works' fine but is missing functionality it had for a very long time (maybe since inception but i have only been on ios for 3 years, it's been there since I have been using it). Any thoughts on this or am I the only one in the world who was using that feature?

    I am frustrated with the new calendar changes as well. I did find that when in the month view and hitting the "search" magnifing flass icon it brings up a quick list to view some of the upcoming events. Hopefully they will find a happy medium and put back some familiar views.

    I installed the Calendar app called "Tempo" and it's pretty nice.. it's as close to an iOS6 calendar as I've seen. it's free and Ally did a review on it (and other calendar apps) on iMore's main page. Check it out...

    I actually like the iOS 7 calendar app... I must be one of the odd ones that like the design...

    I HATE the new calendar as well. Someone told me that you can see the full calendar view by clicking on the Month in the upper LH area. This works and shows days with dots on them....but when you click a day to see what is saved there you are brought to the horrible hourly view. No split screen between the calendar and agenda which is by far the most functional way for me.

    I have a question about calendar apps. I have my iPhone's calendar synced to my Outlook calendar. If I use a third party calendar app, will it continue to sync? In other words, if I add a calendar entry to the third party app, will it show up on my Outlook calendar?

    Click back, and you get the month view, click the search button you get agenda. No big deal. Not sure why they made these unnecessary changes to the layout but there are other probably bigger problems in IOS 7. Dont dwell on this one.

    I actually like this, but wish it were a little more intuitive. Even renaming it from "back" to either the month name, or "Month View" would be helpful.

    Yeah I wanted to come ask for solutions too and saw this thread and realised I'm not alone. I'm forced to use Fantastical too which is a shame. I very much would prefer to use the stock calendar. Hoping for update to it.

    I totally agree. The pre-ios7 calendar was easy to view in an instant. Now we scroll, slide, and select the back button. Did a group of little kids design this and think its funny to have manual bells and whistles and levers for a calendar? Can't believe the "down" grade here. Hugely disappointing and has caused a lot of frustration. I'm with you- if I weren't so frustrated, I would cry.

    You can also click the search icon for agenda view from the daily view as well.

    I agree about some unnecessary changes here and elsewhere. Some things that didn't seem broke were "fixed."

    check out Tempo then, like I said in an earlier post, it's about as close the stock IOS6 Calendar as you can get, and it' free. and it looks cool too.

    Very frustrated too. Downloaded Fantastical 2 the other day. It's great so far for both events and reminders, but there is no option to snooze alerts - a very convenient feature that was incorporated into ios 7. So, I have to make a decision on whether the nice month view with list (F2) or snooze feature (native app) is more useful/important. As of now, I can't decide. Ugh...

    Bought F2 but decided to go back to the Native app and found I can make it on the stock calendar app alone it really makes no sense to use a third party app that just posts to your Native app like a leach anyways

    I know harsh words and I wish they didn't change things but we did get drag to order in day view and snooze on the lock screen that is huge

    Not the fix you're looking for, but if you open the calendar and hit the Search button it show you the agenda view, but more importantly if you set your Notification Center Calendar up right it definitely helps...just have to play with it
