    Default iOS 7 calendar

    Hello

    Please excuse me if this has already been posted, but I was wondering about the iOS 7 calendar.

    Apple, on their iOS 7 page doesn't have an 'official' calendar section. Could anyone give me an insight into a few details into the calendar? Has anyone got some screenshots?

    There's one thing I'm definitely hoping for, and that's natural language input. Is that included as of yet?

    I've searched Google but nothing's popped up!

    Anything is great,
    Thanks.

    The major thing that's changed in the calendar is the absence of items in month view. Nobody seems happy with it, and we are all glad there are so many 3rd party options.

    NO WAY I didn't know this my first Black Eye towards iOS 7 and I really like the Native Calendar app and its my most used app. Can you Explain what items?

    ALLI, Are you referring to the notes that pop up when you tap an event in the monthly view?

    Month view is the view I use 99% because it is easy to navigate between dates AND it has a list of items for each day. Why would anyone involved in the design of the new OS believe this is improvement?

    Any 3rd party suggestions?

    All the views including "search." There just seems to be something missing.

    Anyone noticing all-day events missing in Notification Center?? If Beta 6 is the last one and it isn't fixed yet, then when?

    Playing "devil's advocate" for a minute... who says itís "broke"? It could be a new "feature".

    Fausty82 how could it be a new feature when it's a important part of calendar functionality? Let's say tomorrow it's a relative's birthday and you only get in notification center "tomorrow you have an all-day event" then tomorrow it doesn't even appear in your today's summary. It doesn't make much sense to me.

    Fantastical... IMHO, it’s simply the best calendar app in the entire AppStore.

    There is a bug in the beta too whereby birthdays in contacts only show up a day later on the calendar.

    So Alli, just to make sure I have it right--when you're in the month view and a certain day is highlighted, you can no longer see the day's agenda at the bottom of the screen? Sounds like you have to tap the day and go to the actual day view to see that in iOS7??

    Honestly, while I find that to be an interesting feature, I don't feel like it saves me a lot of time for the space it takes up.
