Description

The calendar for people who hate using calendars! IconCal is a visual drag-and-drop calendar that uses icons to represent events and appointments. Its simple and intuitive interface allows you to schedule an appointment in seconds with the flick of a finger.

IconCal is based on the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words. Instead of writing a paragraph about what you have scheduled for tomorrow, simply drag an appropriate icon there to represent that event. You can even make your own icons by using your device's camera or using images already on your device!

There is an issue with iOS syncing causing some users' data to be duplicated after a period of use. Please be careful using this feature, and make sure you ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA!

Highlighted features:

• NEW!! - Syncing with built-in iOS calendar. This includes syncing your iconcal data with your other devices through iCloud, indirect Siri event creation, and indirect syncing with Google Calendar, Outlook, or any other calendars that iOS supports!

• Hundreds of available icons in a variety of categories and themes, including Emoji!

• Create-your-own-icons functionality. Take a picture with your device's camera or choose from your image library, then zoom and crop!

• Familiar and powerful event creation. Repeating events, tie icons to specific events, alerts, sort by time or creation, and more.

• Quick at-a-glance month view that beautifully displays your easy-to-recognize icons throughout the whole month.

• Easy and intuitive drag-and-drop functionality. Simply drag an icon from the Icon Tray onto any day.

• Icon library. Use the "Icon Toolbox" to quickly sort through your icon library and choose your favorite or most used icons.

• Ten different colorized themes that personalize the look of your month view.

• Tutorial/Help function. To bring up in-app help and tips, simply shake your device to display tutorials on how to use the current screen!

User Reviews:

"I think it's one of the first calendar apps that is much , much better than the one that comes with the itouch/iPhone. One can easily add and or link events with icons or text. It's fast and easy to understand and use!"

"Great alternative to iCal and the other calendars out there. And VERY cool feature that you can create your own icons. I didn't like the birthday cake icon they had in the app, so I pulled a better one off Safari on my iPod Touch, and made it into an icon. I have spent the last hour playing around and making icons. Very neat and fun."

"I love this new app. Finally a calendar with personality. It's really fast on my new iPhone 4. Love the custom icon feature. At a glance, I can tell what I'm doing this week and who I have appointments with by their picture. The negative reviewer must have tried this on an old iPhone 3G with iOS4 installed to have so much trouble. It works great on iPhone 4!! I'm looking forward to the evolution of this app and hope someday that Apple will allow it to integrate with mobile me. Thanks!"

"…I have autism, so having an organizer with a calendar that can be viewed easily is really important. This calendar does just that, and is exactly what I am looking for…"

"Simple, ez to use, I love to be able to see at a glance what I have going on. Love the custom icon option that's way cool, I have an iPhone 3gs, so far no bugs"

Great App

:
Please fix the current day highlighting. It only seems to work if I reboot my phone.

Updated review:
After using this for a while, I'm really impressed by this app. I especially like the ability to create you own icons. I am experiencing one problem though. The current day is not being highlighted correctly. Seems to be stuck on two days ago,

I think this app is great for those of us who like icons on the calendar for quick identification of events. Lots of options for different icons, including making your own. Quite a few month themes also.
I would like to see some additions in future updates that would make this app 5 stars:
The ability to enter yearly events such as birthdays so they would automatically be entered for every year.
Alerts for events.

I've just started to use this app and I really think it is a great start.

3/5 stars

Great concept, need one major change!

:
Hi, first of all, love the concept! I was looking for a calendar where I could create icons to represent specific patients I see on a variable schedule. This app let me do just that an put them on the days plan to see them. The only drawback is that when I click on the specific day I can't drag the icon to a specific time slot. I like the ability to type in the slot but it would be more efficient if the ability to drop the icon into the time spot was also available. I would be willing to pay more if it had that one function! Overall, better than other simple drag and drop calendars!!

3/5 stars
