Calendar by 44 is all about two things; speed and clarity. To clearly see what your schedule looks like, and to quickly add events to it. It's based on a seamlessly scrolling collection of months, tightly integrated with a daily list and a new kind of intuitive flow for creating events. It’s small, there are no view switchers and is operated completely from the lower part of the screen.

Read on to learn more or download for free to try it before you buy it.

Tap or grab the plus button and drop it on any date to start creating an item. As you begin to type, a preview schedule is shown for the current date. That way you can see what time works best, even while creating.

Scroll the preview to set start time. Drag it to set duration. No need to pick through menus or manually type out the time, though that’s supported too.

Shortcuts lets you select a calendar, a color tag, location and enter notes by typing hotkeys. For example “/” + [notes] or “#” + [color]. This is the fastest and smoothest calendar creation flow we have seen.

The design is based on a seamless, infinitely scrolling monthly view that highlights multiple-day events, includes to-dos, fades out past events, supports highlight by color tag and presents your events in up to three lines to avoid clipping.

Tap any date to open a daily list.

The daily list shows calendar events right along side scheduled to-dos. It supports quick swipe-actions that let you delete, copy, set color tags and complete to-dos.

Any good calendar should let you organize through simple lists and to-do items. Calendar by 44 does this in style.

Other than that we support most of what you would expect, create, edit and delete calendars, create advanced repeat rules, any number of custom alerts, convert events in to to-dos, invite people…the list goes on.

Excellent Calendar

I have this thing about calendars, I really enjoy having one that is easy to use and has numerous options for each entry. I especially like the way I can use colors to make an entry stand out.

The one thing I miss with this app is the lack of a calendar view with just dates. I often need to count weeks and for that I have to switch to a different calendar app.
But overall worth the cost for full access to all the features. A better user guide would be very helpful.

This calendar is fast 📅

This is a really refreshing and cool take on calendar apps. The design & interactions are efficient. It’s a really strong start but I just hope for a more complete ecosystem (that I really depend on with calendar apps) with an Apple Watch and macOS app! If these come out I don’t see myself going back to any other third-party calendars

Reminds me of NinType. Could save time, but could be too hard to learn

This could be extremely fast if you learn it. They are definitely solving a problem I have experienced. It’s too hard to create events on most apps. Too much tapping and fussing.

I wish you could tap the AM/PM buttons without having to type a colon and a minute time first. As in I wish I could just type 5 and hit the PM button. And why is the “:” so far? The left side of the screen is hard to reach.

Also, there should be an option for text wrapping. I want one event per line, so I can quickly gauge how many events are on one day

Developer Response ,

Big thanks for sharing this, both points make a whole lot of sense. We have made a few tweaks along these lines, and with the next release (probably available at the time this comment is readable) you can use the Am/Pm button freely to put, for example, "5" and then "Pm" and you'll set the time. We also moved the colon button 👍 We'll have a look at a setting for number of lines in month, but the next release reduces it from unlimited to three. That way most events are still readable without too many "..." scattered across the dates.
