With The Illustrated Calendar 2012 / 2013 for Kindle, Kindle Touch and Kindle Keyboard, you have two whole years in your pocket. The calendar is hand coded to guarantee the best possible appearance on an eInk screen. You can, of course, also select the font size you wish. As you know it from paper calendars, there is a picture for every month that shows you some sunny sides of life - the images were taken in Spain. Although they are shown in grayscale, you will be surprised by the graphical possibilities of your Kindle. The calendar does not only contain the national holidays but special festive days too so you won’t forget mother’s day again.
With the annotations function of the Kindle, you can easily add your own remarks even if you don’t use the individualization feature of this calendar (that requires a computer). Put the cursor on the date where you want to add anything, press OK (Kindle), touch (Kindle Touch) or simply start typing (Kindle Keyboard). Afterwards, a small number will indicate that there is a remark added by you. The text will be saved in the MyClippings file on your Kindle.
Sure - the Kindle calendar does not replace a real calendar like you know it from computer programs like Outlook. It cannot alarm you nor you can synchronize it with your Google account. That would only be possible using Active Content - but Active Content is only available for customers of amazon.com living in the US. For all the others world wide, the semi-active technology developed by us is as far as you can get on a plain, factory-delivered Kindle. But on the other hand - even without automatic notifications and alarms the calendar may be useful simply because you always have it with you as long as you got the Kindle in your bag.
Attention - with a font size larger than 4, the calendar entries might run over to the next page. The calendar is best seen in horizontal format; kept vertically, image and calendar will be distributed to two separate pages.
