I have visions of the developer(s) saying "OK - let's figure out how to resize our Pocket PC application's screen, then add softkey support. Then, we ship!" Needless to say, porting an application from the Pocket PC to Smartphone platform requires a bit more thinking.<br /><br />My apprehension was hightened when I first agreed to review Developer o*ne's Power Calendar and Power Tasks (EDITORS NOTE: This review focuses o*n Power Calendar). Developer o*ne has been extremely successful with their Agenda Fusion product; this did not, however, guarantee that they would easily move to the Smartphone development platform. After a very brief bit of initial use, I was able to breath a sigh of relief, as Developer o*ne has put together a product that shows their strengths in understanding the PIM market, yet thoughtfully implements an interface well suited for the Smartphone device."<br /><br />Read the full review at <a href="http://www.bostonpocketpc.com/modules.php?op=modload&amp;name=Reviews&amp;file=index&amp;req=showcontent&amp;id=162">Boston Pocket PC</a>.<br /><br /> <img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/powercal_view_normal.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/>

One of the must haves for the Smartphone. Makes the phone "smart".

I have been using it since it came out and really like it. Month and week view view are a must though. I hope it is available soon.

Week and Month views would sell it to me. Until then, it's unsold as far as I'm concerned.

You can view up to 7 days on the screen, however it's not displayed the same as the Pocket PC. It just listed out everything for the next 7 days seperated by the date.

I would like to see something that displays a little calendar for the month and shows which days have something and which don't. Then you could use the joystick for navigation, or maybe just punching in 15 would highlight the 15th.

Either way, it's a great app.
