    A very objective review. Thank you for the well thought out observations and helpful suggestions for improvement. Well done.

    PS - who is Mac?

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    I apologize for not being more articulate in my post about the "improvements" Apple made in their calendar. However, the old style worked just fine and was more user friendly than the improved version. There is an old adage, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    If Apple thinks jazzing up the graphics on their calendar will make people rush out and buy a new iPad or iPhone rather than lets say a competitive model with many more features, they have another guess coming. Too bad we can't resurrect Steve Jobs.

    The fact that iOS7 got adopted faster than any other iOS and iPhone and iPad sales it will make it hard to say people will not accept change as they apparently have voted with their pocket books but thats not to say at some point they may offer the ability to customize certain things.

    Very true. Every new version of OS X or iOS is a love - hate relationship. Most folks love the new versions but there are some who hate it. And of course then there are the fan boys who think everything Apple "walks on water".

    We were just talking about iOS7 at Thanksgiving supper tonight. Everybody was happy with the new iOS but did not like the new Calendar. More business for Readdle's Calendar 5.
    Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone, rejuvenated a discarded MacBook and, finally, Apple Watch. Happy camper.

    Personally I find the Calendar to be more readable than before, but I admit I'd like a little less white in it (I've spoken about the high "white" content in iOS 7 elsewhere). I was absolutely NOT a fan of the faux-leather (and more importantly the reduced functionality). However, as Demapples points out, there are great alternatives out there if you want.

    If you want to use Calendar but just don't like the data-entry aspect, take a look at Fantastical for iOS. There is a version 2.0 coming REALLY SOON that will be a separate purchase, so I can't suggest you buy it yet -- but its a "staple app" on my Mac and I'm waiting for 2.0 to buy it for my iPhone. Everyone I've suggested it to loves it, and I'll bet you will too.

    Hi woolieone

    Your comments are very general. Which aspects of Calendar do you not care for or find irritating? Reason I ask is that there are some features which have not been widely publicised, but other forum sites as well as this one have directed people to tweaks and tricks that can circumnavigate some of the irritations.

    For example, in my ignorance, I couldn't get a list view of daily events as per iOS6. Dead easy when someone tells you how to achieve this. A trivial example, perhaps; but can we assist with specific annoyances which you have?

    Yes, moved to appropriate forum.

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
