In 10.5, iCal is just one view
Authored by: scott_a_m on Nov 20, '07 08:05:40AM

It seems to me that the new iCal interface is biased towards reading of existing info. and against editing of the same. I suspect that as more new Leopard applications take advantage of the public CalendarStore framework to manage either all calendar information or specific subsets, this bias within iCal will lessen in significance. iCal is now just one view of a system-level database, and I'm sure many more apps with different views will emerge in the weeks and months to come.

Personally, I don't write enough information directly into iCal for the new format to make too much of a difference to me -- but I can see how, if I was creating lots of tasks or events, it might.

In 10.5, iCal is just one view

I always felt like the info window on the older version got in the way. I know that sounds strange considering the 10.5 version has the pop up appear over the calendar, but the difference is that there is less disconnect now between the event and the events info. I think it's more apparent how to use iCal than before, particularly for new users.
