I (and I think many of you) would like to find an iPhone calendar app that lets the user add an new event by touching the hour (no the day-view mode) and delay an event, instead of needing to enter, edit, change the time and finally save.

Is there such an app?

I'm a big fan of Calvetica, which can do the things you're looking for. And it's much prettier than the default iOS Calendar app.

Also a Calvetica fan. Took a little bit to get used to the interface, mostly due to how different it is from the built-in Calendar app, but now that I am I can't imagine going back. – Matthew Frederick Feb 17 '11 at 17:09
Another Calvetica fan. The quick-add for new appointments is awesome. – Ian C. Feb 17 '11 at 18:54
I second Calivetica - I just wish it would show the current day without it needing to be a badge – user3050 Feb 17 '11 at 23:18
Almost perfect, but it doesn't show the "List View", that it's my preferred.. – Tom Brito Feb 17 '11 at 23:57
When you go edit the events details (after created) it have a ugly big page with no content on the bottom.. like a bug, but just an empty page that can bother if you scroll down.. – Tom Brito Feb 18 '11 at 0:06

Pocket Informant is probably the most full featured I've seen - almost too full-featured, as it can be a bit overwhelming initially. I use it's built in Google Sync functionality to sync directly to my Google Calendars from within the app itself.

Bonus points for the fact that it actually turns the location field of an event into a map link (Still can't understand why the built-in doesn't do this...)

Do you know if, in the Day View, you can add an event with a single touch in a given hour? And what about delay an event (without need to go to edit it and set a new time)? – Tom Brito Feb 18 '11 at 0:03
