iOS 5: Scroll quickly to past/future time periods in Calendar iOS devices
In Calendar on iPad, it's possible to quickly move on the timeline of days/weeks/months/years by touching and dragging beyond the right or left end of the visible line.

In the iOS 5 Calendar on the iPad (cannot test iOS 4 or iPhone), touch any of the time periods on the timeline at the bottom of the screen and swipe beyond the end of the visible timeline.

With popovers, Calendar will show past or future time periods that you can go to by releasing when you see the one you want. The time-scrolling will accelerate as you swipe further away from the end of the line. Since the timeline itself doesn't actually change during this scrolling, you can always return to the current frame by swiping back onto the line.

[crarko adds: I looked for this on the iPhone and, unsurprisingly, didn't find it. There's just not enough screen real estate for some of these extra features. Looks good on the iPad, though. I also don't have iOS 4 around anymore to try it there.]

Useful given that there's no "Go to date" function like there is in iCal.

It'd be nice if you could enter a date in the search field and get taken to the day.
