Just draw or write your event with your finger. Sketch a heart for your anniversary dinner, a necktie for your business meeting, or a book for your college class. Can’t draw? Jot down your pet’s name for their vet appointment, the name of the club where you are meeting your friends, or the name of the park for your kid’s play date.
You can also give the event a name if you like for viewing in other calendar apps. Add the basics you need like the location and start and end times. You can have it repeat, invite others, and set up two different alerts.
