Which mobileorg are you talking about? Android, iOS, or some other?

I am not sure about the other types, but Android mobileorg has a good
support for calendar integration. Just choose the calendar you want
synchronized with org-mode files - it could even be Google calendar if
that is your thing. I have setup an offline non-cloud calendar for this

Now if somebody asks you what you do on 1st january, you open your
calendar on your mobile phone. On most mobile interfaces, digging into
tree structures is much less convenient than the tabular information
that is calendar. 

It has the advantage that you keep using your datetree structures when
you have the power of a full keyboard, emacs and large screen.

You also get other features of calendars like reminder
alarms, sharing calendar with others so that they don't have to ask you
what you do on 1st january in the first place etc.
