10.7: Navigate iCal calendars using gestures
Authored by: BrentT on Sep 11, '11 05:28:31AM

My Apple Trackpad (that is the external pad, this does not seem to work on a laptop trackpad) works with a two finger swipe. The number of fingers can be changed in the System Preferences>Trackpad>More Gestures>Sweep between pages. Interestingly for me is that when set to two-fingers the months change with the page flipping animation. When set to three fingers there is no animation between months.

The left-right behavior seems linked to the Scroll & Zoom>Scroll Direction option. When selecting "natural" the months go forward with a sweep to left (which feels "unnatural" to me). I have gotten used to the natural setting for up and down scrolling as it is more like the iPhone scroll. I have come to prefer sweeping for going through the months, weeks, or days over clicking, regardless of the direction selected.
