“Launching the Google Hijri Calendar showcases our effort to focus on the needs of users locally. Calendar is a great tool for organizing your life,” said Wael Ghonim, Marketing Manager. “It’s another of our efforts to provide users with fast, easy-to-use applications that help to simplify your life in a way that is locally relevant for users who want Hijri Calendar dates.”

    You cannot edit the date which is a required feature with all Hijri calendars – you have to be able to move it up 1, 2 or 3, and down 1, 2, or 3. Is this feature there somewhere?
