Pimlical/Android is definitely a calendar created for power users more than the occasional-use novice. However, there is no requirement to learn all the features in the application and many users may find it very helpful just because of one or two features they really need. The focus of the application is directed towards efficiency and functionality, and for the author, CESD, this is a continual work-in-progress as new functionality is added on a regular basis.
