Have you ever glanced at your stock iPhone Calendar app, only to be frustrated when there is no option for viewing the entire year? That’s where Zicron Software’s app, Years, comes in. Simple and spare, it gets the job done with no muss or fuss.

Upon launch, you’ll be able to view the current year, as well as five different scribbles at the very bottom. Tap a month to view it in a larger format. Once in the enlarged format, tap to choose a scribble and then tap a day to mark it. Tap the day again to remove the mark. Assigning the meanings behind the marks is completely up to you; the number of times each mark is being used will be displayed in the full-year view. If you tap the arrow button on the top right corner, you can email a copy of the month you’re viewing, scribbles and all. Switching between years is as simple–and pretty–as tapping the buttons on the top corners.


And that’s basically all the app does; that’s all it needs to do, really. Busy people who like to throw everything onto their calendar probably wouldn’t appreciate such sparse features, but then that’s what the stock Calendar app is for. Some things that might make for a better app is the option to textually see what the scribbles mean, instead of desperately racking your brain every time you launch the app; also, allowing for switching between months by scrolling (negating the need to go back to full-year view) might make Years easier to navigate. Years is uncluttered and elegant, with a very clear purpose, so snatch it up for $1.99 if you’re in need of a something that doesn’t require 50 fields to be filled out just to add an event. Just tap a couple of buttons and be on your way.
