    Hi everyone,

    Is it me or is it a real pain to make an appointment with a reminder on the iPhone?

    Scenario:

    I need to meet someone at 2:30 pm.

    On the blackberry, i need to open calendar, scroll to 2:30 pm and just start typing and press enter when done (alarm is on by default).

    I don't need to tell you guys how much time it takes to do the same thing on the iPhone calendar app.

    Now, is there a simpler way to do this on the iPhone?

    i use blackberry i like it better than the iphone in some terms. but i think the iphone overpowers the blackberry as of now.

    i say work with it, you'll learn the muscle memory as your progress. if you cant take it. get a blackberry and leave the poor iphone alone

    Pocket Informant is a more robust program that might be more of what you are looking for.

    I dont find it that difficult, but yes, pocketinformant is a GREAT app as well, and they have a lite version that you can try out.. I have been using the lite version for months now.. HOWEVER i just changed back to the iphone calander app because I was able to sync it to google and it works AMAZINGLY now.

    Also, have you tried to just view your calander in DAY mode instead of month? Makes it easier if you are doing a lot of daily things.. i plan more monthly appointments.
