Ditch Your Virtual Keyboard With ClickCal for Android

Ever wanted to make greater use of the calendar functionality in your smartphone but find yourself a little put off by the concept of having to type in event details? Thanks to ClickCal by XDA forum member spfoo, you can set your inert heart at ease. ClickCal allows you to create calendar events and tasks by voice or snapping an image with your phone’s built-in camera.

ClickCal is a perfect blog tool, personal, family and work calendar app that allows you to create events and tasks by taking photos and/or via voice recording. No typing is required to create an event. Snap a photo of a document and save – your event is ready. Use your phones built-in camera to scan your paper invitation, dentist appointment note, screen of an e-mail/web page and your event is ready. You can record a voice message to add to the event as well. Optionally you can select event type, choose the calendar, set date and time, and if you really want to type you can add a description and location.

If you’re interested streamlining your calendar entries, make sure to continue on to the application thread.
