For something as advanced as the Ipad it astounds me that the Calendar feature of the OS is So limiting. The Calendar as some people know - ONLYallows searches for up to a year PRIOR to the current date. For this reason alone I still carry around my PALM based PDA which allows a massive historical calendar on which you can search backawrds as far as 1970. The IPAD/IPHONE has such a powerful and fast search feature but it disappoints as it can only go back a year in the Calendar. Has anyone found a workaround for this? Is there a Calendar app out there which allows longer searches but 'sadly of course that probably won't allow you to use Spotlight. Is it really so hard for Apple to implement this?
