Contacts and Calendar
Windows Phone’s address book is called People, and it works much like the iPhone’s Contacts app.
The default view filters out contacts without phone numbers, and you can easily toggle to showing all contacts. The scrolling list is in the same letter-categorised style as the App List.
Profile pages for individual contacts are simple, and make common actions prominent.
There’s also a useful History screen, showing a log of recent interactions with the chosen contact. On iOS, you’d access this information from the Phone app.
Windows Phone also includes a Calendar application. The day view is simple and readable, and includes weather information.
The week view is arranged like a day-planner, with weather information superimposed, and a mini-month display.
The month view is quite dense, with small, coloured markers for events.
Finally, the year view is essentially a wall-calendar in miniature form.
Calendar data is shared across the system where appropriate, as you’d expect.
