The Calendar Month view enables you to quickly see what days in a given month you have appointments scheduled and roughly when those appointments are scheduled.

You can switch between months by sweeping your finger up or down the screen. If you want a closer look at any given day in the month, just touch it to move to the Agenda view for that month. You can return to the month view when you're done by pressing the Menu key and touching Month.

In the Week view, shown in Figure 4.6, you're shown the current seven-day period (the week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday). The current hour is highlighted in gray, and days that have an appointment are shown with a colored indicator in the hour of the appointment. If you have multiple, color-coded calendars set up, each appointment indicator will also have a colored dot on the left side, to indicate what calendar the appointment is stored on. If you don't have them yet but want to set up multiple calendars, keep reading. We show you how to set up additional calendars in the "Adding Multiple Calendars" section of this chapter.

You can view past or future weeks by sweeping your finger to the left (past) or right (future) on the screen of the Android phone. If you want to quickly see what an appointment is without changing the view, just touch the event indicator. A small display box appears at the bottom of the screen to show brief details about the appointment (what it is and when it's scheduled). The Day view shows you the contents of your calendar for a single day, as shown in Figure 4.7. Appointments appear at the top of the screen if they are all-day appointments, and on the appropriate time slot if they are shorter. The Day view is divided into one-hour increments. Appointments that take less than one hour show in shorter bars within the one-hour increments.

You can navigate from day to day in the same way that you navigate within the Week view—by sweeping your finger to the right or left on the screen. One last view that you can use is the Agenda view, shown in Figure 4.8. Your capabilities are a little more limited in Agenda view. You can scroll through your Agenda view for the month by sweeping your finger up or down the screen. Touching an appointment takes you to a screen that displays only that appointment. Here you can see any Reminders set up for that appointment, or you can touch the Menu key from this screen and select Add Reminder, Edit Event, or Delete Event.
