Windows 8 Calendar App

Bundled apps in Windows 8, there are many new Metro apps revealed by Microsoft for Windows 8. Microsoft displayed few growing ideas into action in Windows 8.

The very new Windows 8 Consumer Preview operating system comes up with new exciting features like Windows store, Mail, Photos, Contacts, Calendar and more. However, today I am going to talk about the Windows 8 Calendar App.

The new dashing Windows 8 Calendar app with an exciting new look is very much similar to Google’s and Apple’s interface. This Windows 8 calendar app is much like a wall to its new feature which makes going through your daily, monthly and weekly appointments like a breeze.

The best part about this Windows 8 calendar app is that it comes up in a full-screen mode. Take a look over the screen-shot:

    Doesn’t sync with Google Calendar. No thanks. VueMinder is much better and runs perfectly on Windows 8.

  • KH

    I can’t schedule recurring events for anything other than once a day, once a week, or once a month. That is so mind bogglingly useless that I have to get a different app for a simple calendar just so I don’t have to put a bi- weekly event in day by day.

    This is quite possibly the worst attempt at making a calendar in human history. Calendars have been around for literally thousands of years. And here comes Microsoft trying to “improve” the experience by adding a log-in screen and a 10 second loading screen. Wow. I cannot believe the stupidity that went in to making Windows 8.
