A better iPad calendar…

…that talks to FileMaker.

One of the great things about Zulu is that it gives you a real-time, read-write connection to your FileMaker Server from the calendar on your iPad. Unfortunately, the calendar that comes with the iPad is a little rough around the edges. Fortunately, there are some great new calendar apps for the iPad that read the same calendar settings as the built in calendar, so they can talk to FileMaker Server via Zulu as well.

My favorite is WeekCalHD from Utilitap. If you rely on the iPad calendar, you owe it to yourself to check this out. Here is a short video of it manipulating some FileMaker records…


I wish this calendar would support clicking in URLs within the event’s notes (something Apple’s calendar also fails to support), but even so, it is a big improvement over Apple’s calendar app.

Utilitap has a calendar for the iPhone as well which I haven’t played with, but if it’s anything like their iPad work, it should be great. (The very elegant calvetica is my current favorite calendar on the phone.)

  • That’s just great. Friggin’ idiots. I suppose if they give us the same exact functionality it’d be alright, but don’t count on it.

  • I’ve got Week Calendar for the iPhone and it’s almost a mirror image of the iPad save for the size. So I think it would work for you just fine.
