PDACorps review Datelens for Pocket PC
DateLens is an animated zoomable calendar for Pocket PC, supporting searching and planning tasks particularly well by using a fisheye representation of dates coupled with compact overviews, user control over the visible time period, and integrated search. This enables users to see overviews and to easily navigate the calendar structure, and to discover patterns and outliers.

"Sometimes it seems that there isn't a week that goes past where a new piece of software doesn't come out that claims to simplify the process of managing our lives. The Pocket PC itself inherently features most of the features to do just that, and the majority of this software tends to just present the existing Outlook data in a variety of different formats. Rarely do we see anything that actually extends the number of data fields that we can store with our appointments. This is actually 'a good thing'. New data fields would mean a new database. A new database would mean we would inevitably mean losing the functionality provided by the Outlook data model and the synchronisation that Outlook/ActiveSync provide.

So, here we go again with yet another piece of software that provides yet another front end to data and functionality that we already have. Another new interface to the data that we're already able to input. Another means of viewing the data that we could already view anyway. Is there really any point to yet another piece of software that ultimately does what so many pieces of software have done before? Don't be too quick to dismiss it...you may be surprised."
