Hello back! Thanks for the response!
Oh I was not suggesting you make a separate calendar app, I know maintaining an app takes a lot of work. What I suggested a calendar be built into… K9 mail. Like the two examples I mentioned.
I did send two links in my initial post to show you what I mean. So you could see and get an idea.
Here is Bluemail video for another example - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cj2Wmf1GPzU
What I think people can gain by having K9 have a built in calendar would be to mirror the workflow of their email. Most email services provide the big 3; email, contacts, and calendar. It just makes sense to me if web-mail gives people those 3 functions in 1 unified service, and my desktop application also provides integration with all 3, having a mobile app that mirrors the same workflow would be a big benefit. After all most people do not have an email service with email and contacts only, then go to a third party for calendar functions for their desktop. There are a few email services like that but not convenient for most as appointments are in the emails that need to be added to the calendar. On desktop this is done all in one go. I would think keeping the workflow consistent between all platforms would only contribute to K9, not take away.
Again this is just a suggestion. Either way, I think K9 is great and can’t wait for all the great things K9 will provide users when 5.8 roles out.
