Alternative to Default Date Picker in PowerApps

To use a different way of capturing dates in PowerApps:

Frankly, the default date picker is clunky and you have to constantly navigate between the arrows to select dates. Can become quite a nightmare for end users.

When you collect it to a collection, or patch or update it to a data source. Just reference the DateValue function. It should mimic it as the Date control does in PowerApps.
