The day today
The pièce de résistance is the way in which a simple pinch will move you instantly and fluidly from a one-month-to-a-screen to a one-day-to-a-screen - or anything in between - view and then let you pan about at the same zoom level.
just like your desktop
As you zoom in and out, the text size stays the same so while the amount of text you can read changes you can at least always read it.
Other useful features include an option to go directly to any date between 1900 and 2100AD and a fully functional appointment-entry system that exactly duplicates the desktop calendar right down to the option to set up recurring events.
The chocolate frosting on this already rather tasty cake is the selection of four desktop widgets ranging in size from 4x1 to 4x4 which you get when you cough up a $2.34 (£1.43) fee, the ten internal colour schemes and the option to select which of your calendars you actually want you see. ®

Touch Calendar 1.0.8
Yeah Smooth Calendar is a decent widget. I just wish you could configure it to span more rows of the home screen. 1x4 isn't enough for me.
what utter cock
"Google’s cloudy calendar was the main reason I adopted Android as my mobile OS of choice" which I think implies you cannot use it elsewhere but it's not worth arguing about.
The reviewer's opening comment suggests it was Google's calender that drew him to Android because, I assume, Android offered him the convenience of one-sign-in sync. That's how I read it anyway.
Can't imagine any WinPhone 7 and Palm WebOS users feeling the need to clarify that Google calender can synch to their handsets. Must just be an Apple (user) thing.
