Linear calendars can only show you an arbitrary bracket of time at once. This leads to time "slipping around" as you scroll and lose appointments hidden outside that bracket. PiCal shows your entire day as one fixed image so you won't miss a thing.
One alarm is never enough if you have a critical event. PiCal lets you set multiple alarms with one click. Make these appointments really stand out by adding an optional red visual cue to them as well.
Times and dates can be hard to absorb when numbers are slippery. The 24-hour clock displays time in terms of direction or angle instead of numbers. The clock hand follows the natural movement of the sun across the horizon, and shows you how much time you have before your next event.
Touch and drag
Add a new event to your day by touching and dragging on the dial. Let go to set the start time. Give your event a name, tap done (top right), and that’s it. Fast and intuitive.
Slide to adjust
No more calculating the end time of an event that lasts, say, 1h 45min. Slide the duration slider, and PiCal does the rest. The dial on the right also shows if you have other events on that day, so you won’t accidentally double book yourself.
Remember event-related tasks
It’s easy to forget to “bring that thing” once the time comes to actually go to an event. PiCal lets you add checklists directly to an event, so you get the reminder you need just before you head out.
Color sensitivity and organization
PiCal lets you edit the color of a single event in a calendar to make it stand out from the rest. We also provide ready-made color schemes for calendars and events, that work well for people with color sensitivity or color blindness.
Customize your tools
Too many event options generate clutter. Too few aren't great either. PiCal lets you show exactly the tools you use the most, and gets the rest out of your way.
Shared calendars can become clutter in yours. PiCal has two ring "folders" to let you separate more important calendars from less important ones. You can also mute both calendars and single events.
Your day outside the app
Sometimes you need to be reminded of the same thing in various ways. See the image of your entire day either on your Apple Watch or on your home screen with PiCal’s Apple Watch complications and home screen widgets.
