But here’s the cool part, by clicking on an empty day you can add an activity (A party, date, job interview, doctor’s appointment) the hour, and how long it will be.

And here’s the even coolest part, if you synchronize the Hotmail calendar from your app in your smart phone you will get notifications for the events, that’s right. Never miss a birth date again, don’t forget what day you got that test and be informed about the weather, yes, the calendar will show the weather for the day you have that task.

Other good feature about the calendar is that it is connected directed with your hotmail account, so if you have a birth date you can actually open the task and get information about the person, send an email, a photo, a video or any file directly from your web browser or your phone.

The calendar has push notifications, so you don’t need to update all days you want to know your pending tasks of the day.
