Month View

In this view all weeks of the current month are shown, together with weeknumbers and the days in those weeks with names of those days. Appointments of each day are shown with spiral shaped indicators. These indicators give a clear view of which hours are planned for each day. Appointments that last the whole day are indicated with a green bar beneath the hours spiral.

The button in the top left corner is used to add appointments to the selected day. The top right button is used to collapse the Month View and switch to Day View. Navigating to the next and previous day is done by swiping a finger across the screen to the left or the right.

In this view weeknumbers are shown and appointments can be added. Navigating to the previous or next day is done by swiping to the left or to the right.

Day View

In day view all hours of the day are displayed in a list. Green rectangles represent the time appointments are planned. If appointment overlap occurs, the rectangles adjust their width to fit the screen. Appointments that are planned occupying the whole day are represented by a green bar on top of the hour list.

The hour list is scrollable by swiping a finger vertically across the screen. Horizontal swipes control navigation to the next or previous day.

Hour indication (Month View)

The spiral-shaped 24 hour indicators give an apparently clear view of the planning of each day of the month. Hours from AM to PM are indicated by segments of the spiral with a green color, whilst PM to AM planned appointments are represented by a segment with a blue color. Hours with overlapping appointments are represented with the color red. For appointments with the duration of a whole day, a green bar is displayed beneath the spiral.
