    Soooo I'm pretty sure MobileMe had this but seems to be missing from the new iCal in ios5

    On MacBook iCal you can be very specific as to when a repeatable event would occur..

    For example

    I want to run a specific update to a computer on the 2nd WEEKDAY of every month....

    How do we do this on iPad iCal iOS 5?

    Still No Start of Week Option in iOS 5

    I put this in a thread in the iPad Apps section too.

    You still can't change your start of week on iOS 5 unless you change your international settings. I live in America and want my week to start on Monday, regardless of popular convention. More insulting is that iCloud allows you to set your calendar's week to start Monday. But for some reason, the iOS 5 coders want to leave this out. It may be the dumbest, continuing oversight in Cupertino right now! :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    How no idea how many times I've sent this to Apple. I guess I need more voices!

    Use Google Calendar and you'll be much happier. I did and I am.

    kappa... you still cant do the cool functionality that ical has with regards to having repeatable events to occur on unique times every month aka

    i want to update computer 1 on the 2nd WEEKDAY of each month

    i want to run our sales reports on the 3rd WEEKDAY of each month

    etc etc

    just tried google cal again real quick to see if they fixed this but alas they have not... i have a Android phone and that still fails too

    only apple has come close to what is needed.. they just need to extend the "Custom" repeat options to iOS
