Appoint iPhone Calendar App Lets You Swipe Instead of Type

Zurich, Switzerland – Appoint creator Urs Gort has released an updated version of the powerful calendar app, including stunning new color themes, resolution for time conflicts, and other improvements. Aimed at people with busy schedules and little time, the app’s clever auto-completion engine prefills information based on past events, eliminating time-consuming typing in favor of a few swipes. Appoint 2.3 for iOS is now available on the iTunes App Store.

Appoint is the most customizable calendar tool available for iOS devices, so it is no surprise that personalization features are the focus of the latest release. Users can now choose from professionally designed color palettes that fit in beautifully with iOS 7, or create custom themes from any color combination imaginable.

“Calendars are very personal, and this is just another way you can make Appoint your own,” says the app’s developer, Urs Gort. “A live preview shows you exactly how your calendars will look with the colors you choose.”

This latest release also adds thoughtful tweaks aimed at Appoint’s busiest users. Invitations are displayed automatically so that a user can accept or decline in a tap, or even write a quick reply to all attendees of a meeting. And a helpful warning appears whenever a time conflict appears between two appointments, with a button to resolve it in just a tap.

“Appoint is more like a top-notch assistant than an ordinary calendar,” explains Gort. “Not only will it alert you when you try to schedule overlapping events, but it can resolve those time conflicts too. Day, week, month, and a handy list view make viewing your schedule possible from every angle.”

The new features in version 2.3 are natural enhancements to the Appoint’s core goal of reducing typing and making calendar entry possible with just one hand. Appoint uses the contact information, past events, and locations already present on a user’s iPhone to intelligently create new events. Tap on a date to schedule an appointment, or shuffle existing events just by dragging them to different time slots on the calendar.

Appoint stays in sync with other devices by using calendar and contact information from iCloud, Google, Exchange, or any other service supported by iOS. The latest version of the app now opens turn-by-turn directions in the navigation app a user prefers, including Google Maps and Waze.

International support is extensive, with regional time and date locales for the entire world, and language localizations in English, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 19.4 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Appoint 2.3 is .99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

Urs Gort and Andreas Peter are a small, independent development duo based in Switzerland. Appoint came to life originally as a project to help Gort’s wife, a busy private therapist and mother, to manage lots of work with little time. Not able to find a solution to meet her needs, Gort, an experienced software engineer, developed an app that would solve the problem for busy people everywhere.

AMRC for iPhone and iPad lets you swipe and flick your way through reddit

 AMRC for iPhone and iPad lets you swipe and flick your way through reddit

AMRC is a newer reddit client for both iPhone and iPad that is mainly gesture driven and allows you to swipe in and out of any menu instead of having to use navigation menus. Outside of a quicker way to browse, AMRC also offers sync support through Synccit.com, full reddit markup support, and more.

The free version of AMRC will let you browse reddit front pages and sign in to view your subreddits. To access all the features AMRC has to offer you can upgrade to the pro version which adds searching, private messages, commenting, a night mode, and more.

One thing AMRC excels at is fast browsing via gestures but other than that, a lot of other reddit clients such as Ruby and Alien Blue offer a lot of the same feature set. If you’re a reddit junkie, have you tried AMRC? Which reddit client do you prefer?

Swipe Telecom and MTV India launch the MTV Volt, a 6-inch Android smartphone, in India

mtv volt

Looks like it’s the season for phablets in India! After the announcement of the Byond Phablet PIII and the Byond Phablet PII, we now bring to you the announcement of another 6-inch Android phablet by California-based Swipe Telecom in collaboration with MTV India (owned and operated by Viacom 18), called the MTV Volt.

Here’s a quick rundown of the Volt’s specs and features:

  • 6-inch capacitive display with 854 x4 80 resolution
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage, expandable via microSD up to 32GB
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • dual-SIM support
  • 3,200 mAh battery
  • Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

Sandeep Dahiya, SVP and Business Head, Consumer Products at Viacom 18 said that the MTV Volt is a “made to order” product for a generation that is constantly communicating, entertaining and socializing, and includes features that address its needs, along with a price-point that suits its pockets. He added that the company expects the MTV Volt to generate a great response among the Indian youth population.

Also mentioned was the eventual availability of the MTV Volt V4, which will boast a larger 4,000mAh battery, while also having an exclusive TV player app that will feature popular content from MTV. I’m surprised that that the MTV Volt itself does not have this app available. I also expect the next iteration of the device to feature a better display, because the low resolution on a large 6-inch display is somewhat disappointing.

The MTV Volt will be available from over 10,000 retail stores across the country, as well as from online stores like the Swipe eStore, Flipkart, Infibeam, and more. The device is currently priced at Rs 12,999 (~0). This release is to be the first of many considering a new licensing deal both companies have signed to launch between 8 and 12 smartphones, phablets, and tablets over the next two years. This is definitely a good start, and I can’t wait to see what both companies have in store for us in the future.

What are your thoughts? Would you consider buying the MTV Volt? What do you think of the current 6-inch smartphone trend that is sweeping the country?
