Bug Description

Related to bug #1294684, but long-press is difficult to discover.

* go to any Day view
* tap anywhere on screen

* an event is added around the time that was tapped

* nothing happens

--- --- --- ---
UX Comment:

As mentioned, Long-press is used as there is a very high chance of frequently creating new events in the calendar with a tap.

Additionally, the planned bottom-edge overlay for creating new events will provide a more visible alternative point of entry.

We have something similar already. If you long press on day view or week view, it will show new event page from where event can be created.

See description, long press is difficult to discover (maybe we need a hint?), but in day view tapping should do the same thing, as there's nothing else for it to do.

I have concern that some time while scrolling in DayView, Touch while scrolling might be registered as tap and create unnecessary event.

Now we also added feature to add and reschedule events by Long press and Drag-Drop, Now we need to consider this use case as well.

I also think that there should be an easier and quicker way. What about a double tab?
