    I can repeat an event weekly, monthly, or yearly...
    But many events repeat on the 3rd Saturday of each month, or the 2nd Tuesday of each month. How do I do that? :confused:

    Informant

    Thanks - I'll look it up.
    It just seems to me that a decent calendar app would have been a no-brainer....

    Sounds like Informant can't sync directly with iCal. Is that right?

    It does do that - my team meeting is the 2nd Friday of every month and it's on my iPad's calendar - but you need MobileMe. The included version of Calendar doesn't support custom repeats.

    Thank you both for your suggestions. I am NOT shooting the messenger, but I don't need a full-blown planner, or a separate app like MobileMe ...
    I just want to schedule meetings like every other simple Simon calendar program I've ever seen before I got on iPad. To allow an event the 2nd Tuesday of every month, etc. Is just a total no-brainer forna calendar app!

    Hello Apple...are listening? How come you can do the complex things, but leave out the simple stuff?

    I agree with you, but remember that MobileMe is Apple's service for coordinating data between iPads, iPhones and Mac computers. Leaving some functionality out is their way of steering people to more of their products so that Steve can get yet another ivory backscratcher...

    Calendar alternative

    I found Informant to more than I wanted, and a tad pricey.
    I just downloaded 2Do and find it does what I want. It is more of a 'todo' tool, but the calendar it produces is good, and has the functions I want.
    From the comments, they seem to be responsive and well-liked as well.
    (...and cheaper than Informant...)

    2Do recommendation

    I had the same problem with the iPad calendar and found the 2Do app to be a great product. Thanks for the good tip!

    2Do was a mistake

    Subsequent to my previous post, I found that 2Do will not sync calendar entires with Outlook. It only syncs notes/tasks. This is of no use to me and makes this a very limited product. I wanted everyone to know so that you won't waste the time and money that I did. This limitation should have been made clear in the product description.:mad:
