We’ve redesigned the way you create events with a new floating add button and the next evolution of the Timepage new event interface. Entering details for your event like the location and people attending is a great way be better organized, and now with improved suggestions and the Recents Bar you can effortlessly add people, places and names you commonly use.

The new Add Event button floats conveniently in reach at the bottom of the Timeline. Tapping it jumps straight to adding a new event, or you can drag it over a day on the timeline to instantly add a new event on that day.

The Add Event screen has an all new elegant layout that puts everything you need at your fingertips.

  • Setting an all day or multiday event is now as quick as tapping the options above the keyboard.
  • Flick the time scrubber to effortlessly choose a time, or press and hold on it to zoom in and pick an exact minute.
  • Want to type the start and end time? Simply tap on the time to bring up a number pad.
  • Quickly change the day by swiping left or right, or tap it to choose a date.
  • Your event title now displays in a color coded card to match the calendar.

The new Recents Bar sits along the top of the keyboard and gives you instant access to recent locations you’ve used and people you’ve invited in Timepage. The Recent Events button brings up a list of whole events you’ve recently made; tapping one magically fills in the name, location and people.

Suggestions are more useful with a new interface that slides in below your event as you type, showing you people and places. Tapping a person allows you to choose from multiple email addresses if they have them.

See more at a glance

Your events now display more useful details in more places - all without becoming cluttered.

Configuring your calendars used to be a bit of a chore, but now it’s something to look forward to as you craft your perfect setup.

Five beautiful new theme colors give you more options to find the perfect theme. Be sure to try out Fluorescent Pink, Wednesday Pink, Kiwi Green, Sky Blue and Arctic Blue.

Better Reminders

Timepage - better reminders

Setting great reminders for your events is key to being on time. We’ve completely redesigned the reminders screen in Timepage to make it fast and effortless to set useful reminders.

Organize your whole year

Timepage - all-new Year View

The all-new Year View is a great way to see all twelve months of the year at once. You can swipe up and down between entire years and simply tap any month to conveniently jump to it on the Heat Map and Timeline. On iPhone swiping right on the Heat Map displays the Year View. On iPad, you can display it by tapping on the month name above the Heat Map.

Timepage - all-new Month View

A highly requested feature was to bring the Month View to iPhone. Now you can simply turn your iPhone to landscape when viewing the Timeline and watch it morph into the full Month View.

Birthdays

Timepage - birthdays screen

We all love knowing our friend’s birthdays, but having 3 different calendars tell you it’s Simon’s birthday today isn’t ideal. Sure Simon is great, but he’s not multiple birthday great. Timepage now has a clever system to take care of that for you, automatically finding and combining birthdays from across multiple calendars. You can also now choose which of your calendars are identified as a birthday calendar from the calendar preference screen.

Tapping on someone in the new birthdays section on a day brings up a new screen to help you get in touch.

More under the hood

We’ve rebuilt significant parts of the code that powers Timepage in our endless quest for a fast, fluid experience.
