Version 1.2 is Now Available

Holiday Year Calendar version 1.2 is released today. One major update in this version is several export functions, which let you send your calendar to family, friends, or your boss easily through in-app email, and more. We also added an option to quickly manage markups for consecutive days in a row or column within a month by simply dragging your finger across them. This comes in handy when you want to apply markups for several days in a row, all the Tuesdays for some reason, or an entire month, etc. In addition to a few other small features, we have put a user manual and some FAQ into the Help page to be more user friendly. Hope you guys will like it.


Holiday Year Calendar 1.1 Released and Made on What’s Hot in More Stores

Holiday Year Calendar version 1.1 was finally released on August 30th, after a long wait in line for Apple review. The update includes integration with iPad’s built-in Contacts, week number, one more markup style – background color, holiday support for 8 more countries – Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, and Singapore, and more. Some of the features were requested by our users and others are things we hope you’ll enjoy. :)

We have also been making an effort to localize the app. Right now the view and edit birthdays etc. from Contacts and calendar view are fully localized to use your own language settings. Holidays from non-English countries are displayed in one primary language and English. In the future, we will definitely localize the whole app.

So naturally we are delighted to find out that the app has made onto the What’s Hot section (Productivity) in more App Stores: Italy, Hong Kong, Netherlands, and Switzerland. We hope more international users will discover the app and find it useful as we have worked hard to support them.


Featured in What’s Hot (Productivity)

The Holiday Year Calendar app has found its way onto the iPad Productivity – What’s Hot section in the App Store for US, Australia, Canada, Spain, and UK! This is a pleasant surprise coming one day after Apple fixed the New and Noteworthy and What’s Hot lists glitch — featuring apps sorted high on the alphabetical list instead of picked by quality…

App Store Reviews for Holiday Year Calendar

Here are some of the user reviews from around the world:

Holiday Year Calendar–1.0 – ★★★★★

by LikeableLarry (United States) – Version 1.0 – 04 August 2010

This is going to be one of the best apps that you will ever buy! If you are in business or in any other profession that requires you to plan far in advance— THIS is the program for you! With one glance you will be able to see what or where you have to be for the ENTIRE year. Flip the page and you can see your entire 2011 itinerary, flip the page again to see 2012, etc.. Note– this program is not offered for the I-Phone, and if it were, it really wouldn’t work—it’s made for the Pad. This is a super program for what it does—I sincerely tip my hat to the people made it!!!

BTW—-The name of this program is TOTALLY misleading in that it’s not a program JUST for recording and highlighting holidays— I could care less about that feature. Personally I would change the name of the program to something more like—Your Yearly Schedule At A Glance. Also BTW—if your the boss, you can use the different colors and icons to track other peoples schedules for the year.

Pretty useful for planning yearly events, and really like the ability to customize appearance. I have my son’s pic as background and can use it as a calendar photo frame too. :) thanks
