iOS5... "Snooze" feature for Calendar alarms added?
I imagine I'm probably the only person using an iPhone that would like the radical, off-the-wall, totally out in left field ability to "snooze" a Calendar alarm Can anyone confirm/deny with confidence if this feature exists with the new notification system Thanks for any feedback.

Okay, I'm having trouble letting this go... other than a $.99 jailbreak app (which is nice to have, BTW), there is NO OTHER way to have customized snoozing on the iPhone? NO OTHER WAY? Even with iOS5 or other jailbreak apps? I could do this on my Palm III in 1998, but I can't do it on an iPhone? Alright, venting is now over If something has changed between the last post and present, I would much appreciate some direction!
I found CalAlarm in the AppStore for $1.99 that goes way beyond what RemindMeLater does as a JB app by providing a full-fledged calendar app (which aint bad) and a snooze screen for alarms that allows you to customize 11 different snooze durations exactly to your liking... minutes, hours, or days. When an alarm goes off and appears as a notification or in notification center you just tap the item, it opens up in CalAlarm right to the Snooze screen, you tap the snooze duration and you're done!
Ridiculous that there is only ONE calendar app of the hundreds in the AppStore that does this. But, at least I now have a great snooze option. I was actually starting to think about switching to another smartphone OS because of what a productivity decriment this caused for me... only one shot at an appointment alarm and that's it with native iOS. Wow. If you have a lot on your schedule or have a lot of appointments as part of your day and can get along without snoozes, more power to you. But, a big sigh of relief for CalAlarm... well worth $1.99.

Well don't you use some third party application for this reason, that will help your reminder issues and you will be able to have the snooze option as well. There are many in the app market, if you want then I ll recommend some good ones to you!

1) can you see upcoming events in the NC like the default calendar?
2) how is the snooze feature handled in the NC? is there a small button to press like when an alarm is received? or is it only described as above?
3) does the date show on the front of the app like the native version?

Thats so stupid.
Apple didnt add snooze or to set alerts until it get acknowledged...
With Outlook/Exchange integration, after years with a Nokia SMART phone I cannot believe that a phone cannot do this.
Right now I am only noticed about meetings, but not really reminded.
Waiting for the JB for A5 devices, like the iPhone 4S...
