Users can also opt to have the calendar display parsha, Omer, and Chol Hamoed, and can switch between diaspora and Israeli calendars. There's no … Read more
The reason behind iOS 7 defaulting to minute increments for calendar appointments is beyond me. Have you ever scheduled a meeting for 8:03? I know I haven't.
In previous versions of iOS, the calendar would increment by 5 minutes, which makes a lot more sense. As it turns out, iOS 7 offers the same functionality, you just need to change a simple -- but hidden -- setting.
As WonderHowTo pointed out, a quick double-tap on the minute column when adding an appointment will change it from 1 to 5 minutes.
Sadly, the change doesn't remain in place; … Read more
MyCalendar TopSecrete is not a calendar app at all but a way to hide your personal images, videos, and more on your iPhone. The app uses a calendar overlay and a clever password system to lock out those images and "hide" them behind a facade that most people won't see through, over a casual glance. The setup process can be a bit confusing, but it generally works quite well.
When you open the app for the first time, there is no indication of what you're supposed to do. There is a blank calendar onscreen with no … Read more

Workers at a design studio in London recently went on a quest to find a better way to organize themselves while in the office. There were a few requirements. It had to be big. It had to cover a few months into the future. It had to work both online and offline. They settled on Legos.
Using Legos, Vitamins built a large, wall-mounted calendar with flat gray pieces as the base, representing the days of the week. Each person has their own line on the calendar, and is represented by a custom minifig character. Different projects are assigned different colors of bricks.… Read more
