I have a mobile calendar app
First I want to say that my app is not a normal calendar app, because users may sometimes need to add a lot of events at once, not like google calendar where people usually create one event every time they need, so I need a UI/UX that will make creating a lot of events at once easy and fast.
The user can press the 'plus' button in the top left corner, to toggle Adding Mode.
In Adding Mode, single-tapping a date opens the "New Event Screen".
But the user can also show the same "New Event Screen" by long-pressing a date, without being in Adding Mode.
- What is the best way to indicate that long-pressing a date is also a possible way to add events? I find creating events by long-pressing way quicker than pressing the plus button and then single-tapping a date, especially if the user wants to create a lot of events at once.
- Should I remove single-tap "Adding Mode" and instead only creating events with long-press? Because if I'll keep both ways to create events I worry it might be confusing for the user which way to choose.
- Is long-press a good gesture for this kind of thing?
Any other advice will be appreciated!
