Here’s how Readdle describes the new features along with some handy use cases:
Useful Siri Shortcuts
You can ask Siri to do certain calendar actions for you with simple voice commands. To create a shortcut go to Calendars 5 settings > Select an action > Record a Phrase. Here’s the list of supported actions:
- Show events for today (agenda)
- Show the next event
- Open Month/week/day view
- Open Tasks
- Create a new event
- Create a new task
Apple Watch App
It’s the all-new watchOS app that brings the power of Calendars 5 to your wrist. Now, you can do loads of actions without even picking up your iPhone and thus save time.
The app alone lets you create events with voice input or scribble, view event’s content, a list of events and complete tasks. You can also customize your watch face with useful Calendars complications to faster create events, view the next meeting, free time slots, or the progress of the current event.
Calendars 5 is highly rated by users with a 4.7/5 average on almost 25,000 reviews. The app is a $7 download for iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch from the App Store with optional in-app purchases.
