[prMac.com] Inverurie, Aberdeenshire/Scotland - Zicron Software Limited has announced Years 1.0 their new event calendar for iPhone and iPod Touch. Designed specifically to take advantage of the iPhone's unique capabilities and interface, Years is a year calendar for easily referencing dates and tracking daily events using colored scribbles. So simple and yet so useful. Navigate through the days and months of a year, then tap on a month to enlarge it and tap the days to add clear visual scribbles. The brain naturally identifies shape and color for easily identifying days.
Using a filofax metaphor and a focus on ease-of-use, Years 1.0 serves as a replacement for the diary's year calendar with an elegant digital year calendar. It features a natural user interface, and perfect for tracking holidays, shift work, medical treatments or any other regular daily events. Years sports a large month display making it easier to associate days with colored scribbles, as well as employs the users regional settings.
"The motivation for Years was born out of an old application that I used a lot on my Palm. I frequently check dates on my iPhone and it's really awkward going through the months in Calendar." said John S. Eddie, founder of Zicron Software Limited. "I tried to use the year view in a filofax as a metaphor while developing Years. You will see the leather background of the application and the paper background behind the months while the scribbles emulate a person scribbling/marking a day on the paper year calendar. We have some nice features planned for a future release."
