If you own an android phone and use the default calendar (which wonderfully syncs with your Google calendar, of course!), you probably know how hard it is to add an event to the calendar.
Once you get to the add new event page, you need to change go through 4 fields separately to set the start and end time - 2 for the date, 2 for the time. And for each of them, you have to deal with the spinners that are highly inefficient for input. Imagine how many button presses you need to do to get the right time and dat? Do these look familiar?
Now imagine if you can just type
8pm mon dinner with kate at apple bee, right at the Quick Search Box on your home screen:
Now you can do it with a new Android application, Calendar Quick Add. You will get this:
Other examples of what you can add:
- 4pm doctor's appt - Add "doctor's appt" for 4pm today.
- tomorrow valentine's day - Add "valentine's day" as an all-day event for tomorrow. You can also use "tmr" instead of tomorrow to shorten your typing on the phone!
- sun 4-7pm mall shopping - Add "mall shopping" to 4pm-7pm the nearest Sunday in the future.
