Fast Navigate the Calendar in iOS with a Tap & Hold

Apr 5, 2013 - 2 Comments

Calendar Using the Calendar app on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to navigate far into the future or back in time doesn’t have to be a slow process of constant taps to find a distant event or important date, and neither does jumping back to the current date once you’re far removed. Here are two quick tricks that will dramatically speed up navigation in the iOS Calendar app.

1: Fast Navigate Months & Years in Calendar

Rather than repeatedly tapping the arrow buttons, you can rapidly flip through calendar months and years by tapping and holding on the arrows instead.

The longer you hold the arrows, the faster the acceleration into the past or future, and there is no quicker way to jump way ahead or far back to a distant month and year than this trick.

2: Instantly Jump to Todays Date in Calendar

Now that you’re far out in the future or deep in the past, you can also instantly jump back to the current date by just tapping on the “Today” button at the bottom.

    Can’t help feeling it’s a desperate story day when a “quick trick” for the Calendar app is that tapping the ‘Today’ button takes you to Today on the calendar …

    I wonder what else people thought it might be for?
