Month at a glance

While the month View gives you a great snapshot of a large range of time, its colored bars can be overwhelming and hard to decipher. To switch between different views, tap the dropdown picker on the left.

Appointments for the day

Switching to Day view gives you a breakdown of your schedule by the hour, and offers you the most space see all of your different appointments. What's more, you can pinch to zoom in if you have an especially tight schedule and need to see more details on one screen. Swipe left or right to move between days.

Agenda

If you don't need to see an entire calendar, the Agenda view shows only your scheduled events in list form. It also shows colored boxes, which indicate the specific calendar that each event belongs to.
