[prMac.com] Amsterdam, Netherlands - Easy Calendar finally brought their popular calendar app to iPad. The iPad edition remains true to its Phone roots: just two or three taps to enter or edit an event.
The basis of Easy Calendar's ease of use lies in a smoothly swipe-able week-at-a-glance view. This combined with the quick event editing is what people seem to like according to the 4.5 App Store ranking.
When rotated to landscape the single week becomes part of a continuous-scrolling three-weeks view. Compared to a typical month view this leaves enough space to show time and text of all events and it can be used to quickly scroll forward or backward in time. For longer term planning Easy Calendar contains a half-year calendar that doubles as a way to quickly jump to a specific week. This view also visualizes longer events like holidays.
Moving an event is done from within the weekly view, not using the frequently used date wheel. Different to most calendar apps this makes it possible for the user to actually see his events and just tap on the day the event has to be moved or copied to. With the iPad edition this even works from the landscape view.
Integrated in Easy Calendar is a shop to subscribe to one of the 3,000 different calendar subscriptions worldwide like (local) sports events, official, religious, and school holidays. The app syncs with iCloud, Outlook, Google Calendar and other CalDAV calendars. And it is multilingual in English, Spanish, German, French, and Dutch.

Pricing and Availability:
The release of Easy Calendar for iPad 2.5 is celebrated with a discounted price of $1.99 USD (normal price $2.99, or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide in the App Store's Utilities category.
Easy Calendar was developed by Tom van Zummeren, Jim van Zummeren and Jos Jong (Devista B.V.). Although there already were many calendar apps, the team concluded that most require too many taps for basic day-to-day tasks. Their cooperative design follows the 80/20 rule: simplicity at its core, but with an opportunity to access advanced features when required. This family business has been growing quickly since the introduction of Easy Calendar in March, 2011. Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tom van Zummeren, Jim van Zummeren and Jos Jong. All Rights Reserved.
