Quite a nice clean interface, but not very finger friendly.
And it pops up multiple windows for entering events which doesn't work for me
on a small screen (and isn't my favourite interface even on a big screen).

Still: shouldn't be hard to write something with a similar interface - I like
the zooming idea - that doesn't have those problems.  Just need an ical
library and a widget library and a few lines of code to join them
together :-)

What is a good finger-friendly way to enter times?  My current toy (which
doesn't do ical) has 3 concentric circles of buttons for AM hours, PM hours
and 5-minutes - see attached (ugly jpeg because list thought my png was too

It's not too bad but feels a little clumsy.
