Scheduling tomorrow today is an admirable habit. We schedule to keep time free and to know when and where we have commitments. When you're away from your computer, you still need access to your calendar to remain productive.

Yahoo Calendar on the web travels well, but on an iPhone or other iOS devices, the Calendar app is closer than the browser. Wouldn't it be great to have Yahoo Calendar events appear there automatically and to be able to edit appointments too?

Setting up Yahoo Calendar and iPhone Calendar to synchronize automatically and in the background is easy. Any changes to the Calendar update on both the iPhone and your Yahoo account.
