Days

A different perspective on the iPad calendar app

Role

For
  • Personal Project (Class Project)

Days aims to create a calendar app that does not resemble a grid of dates, as seen on a physical print calendar. Instead, this application presents each day as a clock, showing the events for the day. It also lists upcoming events below the clock.

Getting Started

At first-use the user is presented with a welcome screen that informs them that Days will need access to their iOS calendar (where an iOS permission popup will display upon tapping Get Started!).

A Three Day View

This initial view provides information about the current and upcoming days. It shows calendar items in the form of a clock and uses color-coded circles to indicate the calendar item’s category. The user can select a new date range, view event information, and select calendars to display.
