The best app that replaces iCal and any tasks app is the wonderful miCal.

The basic app brings the calendar only and an in-app purchase adds the the very complete task addin.

The interface is beautiful, very well organized, clear and one can get a daily, daily list, week month year view. etc etc etc

The daily view has all the appointments and tasks and the views therefrom are quite extensive.

It syncs with Google calendars and Ical perfectly and effortlessly (now, if someone could figure out how to sync Google with Outlook 2011...)

I have been using it for years and cannot recommend it enough (I have no financial ties or otherwise with the company or any of its management....(

"Currently for Gmail users only" should immediately strike Mailbox from the list. That's the opposite of an "alternative".

I prefer to use Any.do over the Reminder app. My biggest gripe with Reminders is simply that the alert sound is too short and does not repeat. I have missed many Reminders because of that.

i've been using "weekCal" for the past year or so instead of the built-in calendar app. i pretty much like everything about it except the name ;-)
it also has copy/paste/duplicate/move type options as well as you can create bookmarks/favorites/templates to make adding new events quick (super quick). -2¢
