Alternative Time Picker
The way to enter times of appointments is rather clumsy. If you want to change the hour and the minute, you have to first select one of both, enter the time, the select the other, and enter the other.
I propose a time picker, where you can enter hour and minute without changing the input mode. Something like the standard time picker, that is used in most android apps where you select hours and minutes by side-be-side wheels.
I can see absolutely no value in the way it's currently implemented.
I like the way it is currently implemented also. It is consistent with the rest of the Android UI. Please keep it as an option.

I grew up with a digital watch, and the circular BC2 way is completely foreign to me. Vote to bring back the old way!
I very much like the current BC2 time picker, please keep it (at least as an option)!
I'm a big fan of business calendar but I can't switch to BC-2 since the interface to setup a new event is not user friendly and takes a long time to configure.
the old interface is much better.

I also vote for the BC1 way.

I also find entering time via a keypad much quicker than either spinning a wheel or waiting for the BC2 hour/minutes circles.

I agree. A simple number keypad is simple and quick. The hands of the clock is neither simple nor quick.
I dislike the gimmicky time selection wheel, it is much easier to just enter the time as a simple 24hour number field, eg 0930 in a manner similar to the original Business Calendar. An option for which would surely please both camps.

i agree. please give us the option for two simple numberfields!
I for one dislike having to spin those things to get to the right time. Takes way more time than the BC2 or BC1way of doing it. If they add it as an option, fine. So long as I can choose.
Zeit eingeben in Format "Std", "min". Springt automatisch von Std in min über. Wie früher bei Psion üblich war.

I think it´s the way of the official Google calendar app, but I found the way of BC1 better
