Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Android App of the Week Google’s cloudy calendar was the main reason I adopted Android as my mobile OS of choice so it’s with no apologies that I’m selecting Touch Calendar as the one third-party app that Google really should license and install as part of the system. It’s that good.

Pinch to zoom between views

The genius behind Touch Calendar is the way it lets you see all your Google calendar data with perfect clarity even on a 3in or 4in screen. It partners up equally perfectly with Android's pinch-to-zoom capabilities.

First some basics. Unlike the standard Android calendar, Touch doesn’t just show you that something is happening on a day, it shows you what is happening, just as your desktop calendar view does.

The colour schemes of your various calendars are also carried over. This may be a small feature but boy does it make life easier especially if you use many of the handy Google calendars for national holidays and sporting events and want to instantly separate wheat from chaff.

Works in landscape mode too

By dint of TC's five initial zoom settings and five font sizes, it’s possible to quickly light upon the ideal launch-layout depending on how much of your calendar you want to see on your phone’s screen, and how much information you want to see per day.
