    Strangely, the Simple Calendar app is also broken in this respect - I'm unable to add a new appointment.
    The Calandr app is also affected.

    I think maybe the update has also updated one of the phone's subsystems which in turn has broken all third party calendar apps as well.

    outlook.com is fine however.

    Same here on Nokia Lumia 820. Anyway I don't need it at the moment, I have summer holidays so hoping to see that fixed in two months, before school starts.

    first, simple calender app's add new event etc, it use the link of create event in calender app, this is inside the windows phone API, and i think microsoft missed some part of code, causing everything to messed up

    I need this calendar, i really hope they fix it today.
    Why didn't they stop the update as soon as they found out it crashes?

    Actually it affects all Windows Phones regardless of manufacturer.

    This is not limited to the Calendar app. Same thing happens with all the Bing App updates. When I try to add my favorite teams to the Sports app, it crashes too. Not sure what Microsoft was trying to do with the updates to the Bing Apps, but they need to reverse this like NOW! Put the old version back in the store as an update and let us revert back until you guys figure this out. Please!

    Guys you can add appointments using the web version of Outlook Calendar and it will sync to your phone. You can use this method until the ms devs fix the bug..

    If MS is made aware of this issue, they will fix it on top priority basis.
    Just like the music app

    I avoided the Calender update but updated all the other apps in Bing after reading Calender had issues, tried adding a team in sports and had no issues ?? Might as well grab the Calender app when next on WiFi I guess, UK O2 720

    There is a workaround for the time being. This is from the comment section of the front page article. This works, I tried it.

    PaulKinslow1 says:

    Add an event by tapping on a time slot in "day" view and add it that way. To avoid the crash, avoid hitting the + symbol until they get this fixed.

    Didn't download, thankfully. As soon as I read the post and some comments, I decided immediately not to update. It's just a number on my store tile, right now.

    It's sad that something so obvious got past QA, but the workaround is very easy and functional in the meantime.

    Using the plus sign on my Lumia Icon also crashed Calendar (but not the phone) while adding an item from the 1 day view works like a champ.

    You try making an app and making sure it is perfect. What's really going on? Probably one single digit is off and because of that, it's trying to find something that isn't there and crashing. Yeah, a single digit is probably causing us all issues, we're only human, sorry folks. Heck, maybe this is the wrong version that got uploaded, happened before on a game when it was first released (they released a beta version, not the true release, again, only human). Give Microsoft a little bit of a break, probably a day, and let them figure it out.
    Good luck Microsoft!
    Professional programmer here. I won't/can't give MS a break on this one. It's completely unacceptable. At my job, every piece of code of code I write gets tested and verified by our QA team or it doesn't go out to where consumers can use it and I have to fix it. I've written WP apps and submitted them to the store. There they are tested by the QA team at MS and if the app fails one of the tests, it is rejected and I am notified. I get that programmers make errors. I've made hundreds, if not thousands of similar ones in my career. QA is not perfect (nobody is) and some bugs always make it past, but they usually catches the obvious ones. An app crashing if you hit one of the main buttons on the home screen is a REALLY obvious one that should have gotten caught in QA at MS or in the store approval process. This is shockingly amateur.

    Same problem here. I have an Icon running the DP and cannot add any new calendar entries. I tried the Native app, as well as Simple Calendar and Cal. Nothing works. I did add entries via outlook.com and they were sync'd to my phone, however.
