[Q] Usable month view in calendar?
Here's a question to the WP8 insiders:
Will the month view in Calendar finally show anything readable?
The current WP7.5 month view shows some illegilible miniature entries on days with any appointments. So you know there's something on that day, but to see what it is you still need to open that particular day.
So let's say you're trying to find a free time slot when arranging a business meeting. You get your Windows Phone out, open Calendar (which goes pretty quick from the live tile), call up the month view ... and here the misery starts. If there's a day that looks promising, you have to open the day and close it again, open another day and close it again, open ... you get it.
What I'd really like to see is a month view that's actually usable. Why not make use of landscape mode for a fully legible monthly grid? Or maybe do a preview area under the month, like the iPhone or Nokia N9 do!
So, to anyone who's had their hands on a WP8 or WP7.8 device:
Is Microsoft addressing this?
(for if not, I'm not buying)
