Calendar on your iPhone or iPad can be used other than just setting meeting the eye. If you use few other apps for typical tasks, then I would suggest customize calendar app effectively work for you. For instance instead of using reminder app, you can use calendar. Additionally, for quick alerts, clock app can be substituted by calendar. Most importantly, calendar on an iPhone/iPad can be synched with the one you use on your computer at home or office. It will help you keep entire event plan at one place.
