We’re also big users of Google Calendar at the radio show. The desktop interface for that is good but the Google Calendar iPhone app is just fucking annoying and really should go to hell. Here are two annoying things it does:

  1. Every day (and after every time you close the app) it asks you to log in again with your name and password, which is a pain in the ass.
  2. After you log in, a little blue box appears saying Install this web app on your Phone: tap on the arrow and then Add to Home Screen’” which irritates me because the app should know that it already IS on my home screen. It already is on my iPhone. Where does it think it’s living?
