Plus the interface has the same clean and unclattered like Sunrise. This really a must have iPad apps for those who want to organize their calendar digitally."

    "Ever since my five-year-old daughter learned how to use my iPad she is always asking me permission to use it and watch videos on YouTube. I dont complain though since with her watching YouTube videos I am able to have a time for myself. So for parents out there dont forget to download Youtube as it is the best iPad app. "
