What application is it? What is its name? What does it do? It is best
to create a more branded icon for your application, than to simply
re-use an icon with a different metaphor. Does your app have anything
at all to do with managing appointments in the desktop's calendar?
If not, I would say that an icon based on the existing appointment
icons is probably rather bad, regardless of how nice and tango styled
If you can describe the application better, or perhaps also provide
a few screen shots, then we can provide better feedback.
