Can anyone suggest any other 3rd party app that has a good calendar function for week views ... something similar to datebook5 (palm) or aquacalendar (symbian) or agendus.
I am a previous Palm Treo user and I prefer the BlackBerry week view. if you stick the cursor onto any of those little bars (on my 8800), the ENTIRE text of the appointment shows up in the white area at the bottom of the screen. I like this even better than the first-line view in datebook.
I know it is different than what you are used to, but it only took me about a day to get used to this setup and now it my favorite to use calendar application ever. Plus there are some keyboard shortcuts that you can find in StinsonDog's tips & tricks (available for download in another thread on this website) that make it really easy to quickly switch to the day, month, or agenda views if you want. I suggest you try these for a while before forking over $$$ on a third party calendar application.
