Discover Windows 8: Calendar App

To help us understand the vision behind core Windows 8 apps, Microsoft has put together a development blog series that provides us with an in depth and unique explanation to the thought process and creation of these essential apps. Microsoft has worked hard to seamlessly integrate them into Windows 8, creating an extremely efficient and intuitive user experience.

The focus of Microsoft’s development blog today is the Windows 8 Calendar App. In developing the calendar, Microsoft wanted to make sure that they:

  • Show your life clearly. You should have crystal clear visibility into what’s happening in your life – at home, at work, and at school.
  • Make it easy to get around. Moving back and forth in time should be quick and efficient. Opening events and appointments should feel natural.
  • Make it easy to add new items. New things are always coming up in your life. A great calendar makes it easy to make new plans.
  • Keep you on time. Well laid plans aren’t very useful if you show up late!
  • Be ready to do more. As you get busier, scheduling gets more complicated. Calendar should gracefully handle your needs as they change.
