[prMac.com] Amstelveen, The Netherlands - Easy Calendar today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of an updated version of its iPhone weekly calendar application called Easy Calendar 1.3 that now also supports copying of events. Designed around frequent tasks, Easy Calendar focuses on simplicity and entry speed allowing users to create a new event or edit an existing one with just a few taps. The new copy feature was designed to fit into this concept of simplicity.
By significantly lowering the number of steps required to enter a typical appointment, Easy Calendar increases the usability of an iPhone as a day-to-day agenda. Being integrated with the iPhone native calendar, Easy Calendar benefits from such standard synchronization features as iCloud, Outlook, Google Calendar and other CalDAV calendars.
Much of Easy Calendar's ease of use follows from its 100% focus on a week view. Therefore the copy feature lets you select the new date from that same week view. This works better than with other calendar apps because it shows you the existing appointments instead of the typical date selection wheel.
In addition to the copying of events this release now also supports countries that have their weekend on Thursday/Friday or Friday/Saturday. And Easy Calendar now automatically pulls new events from on-line services that don't support pushing of events.
"We are committed to never compromise on the 'Easy' aspect of Easy Calendar. For that reason we decided that copying of events should work the same way we already did for moving events." said Jim van Zummeren, one of the co-creators of Easy Calendar.

Pricing and Availability:

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 Tom van Zummeren, Jim van Zummeren and Jos Jong. All Rights Reserved.
