My goal is to have ONE Calendar displaying events from ALL sources.
Yup, that's exactly how it works. Why don't you just root and install a Froyo ROM? I've been running Gingerbread for over a month on my MT4G. It seems ridiculous that some devices are still running Eclair or earlier.

EDIT - What version of Android are you running? I'm pretty sure Eclair can sync with Exchange too. Unless you're on Donut this should be easy.

EDIT 2 - Just Googled the X10 and it says you're on Eclair. From home screen: MENU --> SETTINGS --> ACCOUNTS & SYNC --> ADD ACCOUNT --> EXCHANGE/CORPORATE. It should be that simple.

Agreed. This is by far the best calendar app I have ever used.

Default Touch Calendar is great

Just downloaded to my Evo Shift. I needed a calendar with special repeat settings. This fit the bill!

I don't know if it is the phone that is limited But this SUX.

if I want to schedule an event and have a reminder set to remind me 45 days before, then once that day comes, change it to 30 days, 15 days leading up to the event, I don't see how a snooze feature can help me.. Outside of setting up multiple events 45, 30 and 15 days out how, is there an app that I can accomplish setting reminders that is customizable?
@ 1st paragraph: I couldn't agree more. My Palm calendar from my Samsung i-300 in 2002 was better than the android stock app. This is ESPECIALLY frustrating, as google calendar allows alarms to be set for any # of min/hr/d.

@ 2nd paragraph: you can set multiple reminders - right under the place where you put in the first reminder, you can click the plus sign to add a reminder, so you can put a reminder for 24h, 12h, 3h, 2h, 1h, and 10min if you like. Hope this helps.

ALSO - (kind of related) I JUST FOUND A CALENDAR SNOOZE APP! It's called..."calendar snooze." I downloaded it about an hour ago, and seems to do everything I want it to and more. (e.g., 1 - "snooze for" [#] [min/hr/day]; 2 - "snooze until [date/time]; 3 - default snooze, 4 - edit item, etc). It acts kind of like an alarm clock, going off every 15 - 30 seconds or so until you choose to do something with it (you can mute it though). Im super stoked on it so far.

---
Phone - evo
calendar app - Jorte (satisfied but looking for something better)
widget - Android App Widget 2x2 (pref), Jorte Agenda (works fine) / Calwidget (works fine)

Is there any calendar for 2.2 that allows for selection of time zones when creating an event? I sometimes schedule calls in 4 or 5 different time zones over the course of week, and it would be nice to not have to calculate the correct times in my head.

[url=http://www.pimlicosoftware.com/]PimlicalA[/url[ handles complex time zones very well, there's a bit of a learning curve, but it's a powerful agenda/calendar, I'm using it now as the replacement for Datebk6 from the Palm world. Worth a try!

I dropped Jorte; may redownload it, it was pretty good.
@ doctorjazz: Pocket Informant DOES do the repeating appointments (it does the # of each month; the 1st Monday of every month; and will even do the 1st Monday of [every 2, 3, 4] months).

I'm in the same boat as those Palm users - I'm just trying to find something that works as well as me samsung 1-300 from 2002...

@ world: My opinion on the calendar apps if anyone cares-

Jorte - had it, used it for a while. It was the cutest girl at the ugly girl party for a while but I think the competition has gotten better and Jorte is no longer the only game in town...PROS: (1) clean look, small type = lots of info on screen (2) straightforward and easy to use; (3) the (2x2 agenda) widget has tons of info on it, which lets me easily see what my schedule is w/o looking at the app CONS: (1) uses the stock new event screen, which blows; (2) too many touches to edit events, but don't like the lack of functionality of the widget.

Business Calendar - downloaded it a couple days ago. PROS: (1) LOVE the week view scrolling function (you can see the whole day sorted by time for 1-14 days, by sliding a bar on the bottom, this is GENIUS). (2) has way more functionality than Jorte. (3) The month view is probably the best out of them all (close second is Pocket Informant). (4) Also, I like the week view 2x2 widget. CONS: (1) aside from the sliding week view, Pocket Informant has everything BCal has

Pocket Informant - downloaded a couple days ago. The best I've got so far. PROS: (1) It has everything I want, (2) the event entry screen is not the stock screen (way better, esp in date entry & custom reminder time). (3) amazing month view (you can see the events for a particular day w/o leaving month view) (4) easiest to edit existing events (= less touches) (5) best integration of tasks. CONS: (1) no widget (really?), but I use Android Agenda Widget...If these two apps get together, everyone else might as well pack it in. (2) month view doesn't show schedule without touching the day.

-Touch Calendar - downloaded a couple days ago, loved it for what it did and because it was very pretty, but uninstalled because it doesn't do what I need. It's great as an overview for the month but it doesn't compete in most everything else.

-Pimincal - haven't tried it, but I might because the palm setup was so good and because everyone here swings from it so hard.



imo. THANKS GUYS.

HUGE Thanks go out to javelin9
Thanks so much for your take on the calendar apps, it definitely pointed me in the right direction and I have been playing with Pocket Informant, Business Calendar and Agenda Widget for the past couple of hours. I as well tried Touch and although it looked OK it was missing many of the features that the others offer. Pimincal looks like it would be solid but I'm not ready to drop the $ even though it is a small amount just to see.

I do really like Pocket Informant except that it doesn't have a widget. I can respect the fact that they let you move it to SD because of this but it is actually very small. If only Agenda Widget could initiate opening items in it similar to how it works with Business Calendar. I have much playing to do to make my decision but I wanted to ensure I thanked you for your efforts.

Thanks Again!!!

@atarum: re - AAW.

I felt your pain until I checked my email about 2 minutes ago. I had emailed the dev of AAW regarding the possibility to have the "show calendar" button go to [not the stock calendar] and lo and behold, he got back to me with the way to do it.

Settings --> buttons and toolbars --> override date click/date click application are the settings you want.

As for now, AAW will send you to Calengoo, Business Calendar, Touch Calendar, Calendar Pad Pro, Gemini, and Jorte (to name the better ones). He said Pocket Informant is on the next update. Sweet baby Jesus!


EDIT - ack, just re-read your post. You figured out what I didn't - that you can assign a calendar app to AAW. Rest assured though the dev emailed me and said Pocket Informant was next up.

Great news javelin9, it will be sweet to have AAW point to Pocket Informant. I'm still torn and playing. So many things about Pocket Informant that I love but I keep finding things in Business Calendar as well. I love when your in the Business Calendar monthly and you select a bank of days it brings you straight to the weekly view enlarged/shrunk to fit those dates. Ugh, whichever I pick it better streamline my scheduling enough to make up for the time I played!

NO WAY! I gotta say there are some features on Business Calendar which blow me away. I have it hooked up to my AAW so I'm playing around with that and Pocket Informant right now.

That will never happen. Right now we're doing the equivalent of driving across town to save 3 cents a gallon on gas. But it's the voyage right? Not the destination?

Just gave Pimlical/A, Pocket Informant, Business Calendar, Touch Calendar and Jorte a short tryout between me and my friend.

CalenGoo costs so and there's only a 15-min tryout period so it's passed.

Disclaimer: Just my opinions...

Touch is a nice looking, but not a powerful, calendar replacement.

Jorte is simple and efficient, comes with memo and tasks too, switching between views are too slow through.

Both Business and Pocket are a step above Touch and Jorte, but nonetheless rough around the edge.

Pimlical/A is the power user's choice, but has the "roughest" interface.

Shoot, I didn't know it was multiple choice, I would have also voted for Pure Calendar, I use it in conjunction with PimlicalA, for the agenda view (PimlicalA hasn't had widgets added to it yet).

Andyrubin, I agree, it's a power user's choice, but for those of us who used the Datebk3/4/5/6 apps on Palm, it's the only way to go. It'll get nothing but better as CESD develops it.

Thank you so much! Can we also make it an open poll so that users can add their own options? That way we don't have to bug you every time. I want to add Touch Calendar. Very awesome, you should try it.

Can't make it an open poll on edit, sorry.

Touch Calendar added - running out of slots - I think it maxes out at 24 or 28 - can't see on edit...

@andyrubin: Had you used the Palm calendar in the past? Just wondering if your opinion on Pimlical is based in part on familiarity. I've used the Palm calendar from about 2002-8...loved it.

Thanks for the $.02.

Add Calengoo Calengoo Calengoo!!!

I was able to use the calengoo beta version for about 6 weeks before buying the paid version in January, 2011. Even though the major competition were still free, I had no hesitation to pay the $6 for calengoo. The developer keeps surprising me with added new features to the paid version (I believe there has been 23 updates since the start of the paid version. Every once in a while, I pop back into this thread or I would go back to the Market and download Business Calendar, Pocket Informant, Touch or Jorte to see if there have been any improvements. Calengoo is still superior in my opinion.

It is a damn shame there is no free trial version of Calengoo for new users to test out. I have emailed the developer that he is probably losing alot of customers because Android users seem to be so hesitant to buy unless they can try for free. However, I would still recommend that people looking for a good calendar should skip a Happy Meal and try out Calengoo.

Sure, my first device was a Visor Deluxe, then a certain CLIE, and at last Treo 650 before jumping over ship.

What can I say, Pimlical/A is the closest candidate to Datebk on the Android platform, the features and options are there. That being said, there are still many differences. For example, Pimlical/A makes heavy uses of gestures to move around the app, which is understandably because most Android apps use capacitive-touch and so require a different interface design.

So, there's still a learning curve from moving from Datebk to Pimlical, but once you got the initial sorted out it's pretty much Datebk with a somewhat different interface.

That cannot be said for the rest of the apps.

If you can take Function -> Form, then it's the app to use. And CESD is still working actively on it, and I expect the rough interface to improve over time.

P.S. One of the things I check first is whether they can handle complicated recurring events and exceptions, and if they use the stock date/time picker.

To whom it may concern, there's an on-going thread in Pimlical's Yahoo presence asking CESD to change the behaviours to more "Android-like".

BTW, there's a review at Pimlical for Android review | PDA-247

There's also a long and on-going thread at brighthand about pimlical/a

Initial Release of Pimlical for Android

Here is my issue:
I can't seem to be able to add my business gmail calendar account.
This is what I've found. When I go into my calendar settings, I can add an account, which the only drop down is the weather account.
Looking further into the matter, I went into system settings, account sync and added my business gmail account here.
Now this is the part where it gets a bit tricky.
On my 'personal' gmail account I can sync contacts, calendar & gmail.
On my 'business' gmail account, I only have the option to sync my contacts and gmail.
I don't know why the calendar feature isn't there, but it's been erking me for a little while now.
What I'm looking for is the calendar that will have both my personal and business events and appointments in one single calendar.
The perfect example I am looking for is iCal. If you are a mac user, you know that everything is right there, color coded for my viewing ease.
Could someone please help me with what I may have missed, or a new app that will allow this to happen?
I'm pretty sure calengoo will do this--you can add accounts in calengoo, rather than relying on android, or do both, one each way.

and it's by far the best anyway.

If Pimlical is so good, how come there isn't a trial version available?

No worries, thank you for indulging us being so finicky, lol.

I just switched to Jorte from Pure grid. It looks great and the function seems to be better than any other calendars I used before

Good things don't necessarily come with a "trial".

Obligatory example: Marriage.

Or did you mean you couldn't find it on the Android Market?

I've read it has not been released to the android market yet, I really don't want to spend money on an app just to try it out.

Which is your prerogative, those of us who have prior experience with this excellent developer don't mind paying to beta test Calengoo is more money, and I'm sorry, you can't make a decision on a program that you're going to manage your time with within 15 minutes, so you're paying for that one, too, to see if you want to use it.

Seriously, if you have a complicated or complex schedule and are used to having all kinds of power in a calendaring program, Pimlical has no peer. If all you want to do is keep track of a few things, the other options work just fine.

You say it has no peer....I would agree that it has no peer among free apps, but calengoo is in the same class. From the screen shots, I expect pimlical is not as fast as calengoo for adding events.

Either is easily worth the modest price.

I was not impressed with CalenGoo. I have no problem quickly adding anything to Pimlical. Obviously it's all in what appeals to you. Have you tried Pimlical ?

Yes, I agree.

I have not tried pimlical. The screens shots that I've seen did not convince me that it was even as good as Calengoo, but I just visited thescreenshot page and it's been updated since I last looked, and I see some nice features, like the 15 min. buttons on the time picker. What does the date picker look like? Does it show a calendar? it might be time for me to try it.

What did you dislike or find limiting about CG?

If you value a nice-looking interface, Pimlical/A is unlikely to appeal to you.

That's just the way the developer prefers, Functions first, Forms second.

I am just used to the way CESD 'thinks'. I need the ability to create multiple repeating irregularly scheduled appointments, something CalenGoo just wasn't up to handling.

The 'beauty' will come as soon as the functions are all streamlined.

I believe you can still download a free 30 day trial version of Pimlical Desktop (I use the fully paid version to back up my google calendar on my computer on a regular basis just in case the google cloud ever blows up). There is a 100+ page manual to give you a good idea as to what Pimlical desktop (android) is (or will be) capable of doing and also gives you a good idea as to how the developer thinks (very technical and detailed, "function over form" is a great way to put it).

A couple of features of Pimlical which are rather unique is the creation of floating events and a powerful filtering systems to view only certain events that you choose. I have adopted Calengoo and have been able to use some workarounds which allow me to do some things in a similar way so that I really do not miss Datebk or having pimlical on my android (currently Calengoo allows you to sync google tasks which I believe pimlical does not; when I create certain types of events, I have long ago developed the habit of using the same keywords to make it easier to search for and to viewthese events whether using filters in pimlical/desktop, datebk or calengoo). When I have more time, I may still pay for and download pimlical/a just to check it out and to help the developer pay for more bananas for his gorillas.

Many of the calendars have pretty limited repeat functions. A few of the better ones can do, for example, repeat on Tuesday and Thursday, or repeat every other week, but can't combine those to do, for example, Tuesday and Thursday every other week. But Calengoo can do every combination that I can think of there.

It's hard to be convinced that there's something that Pimlical can do that others can't without specific concrete examples. So far the only concrete thing I have is the 15 min. buttons, which might be enough to convince me to spring for it at least on a trial basis.

I like the Google Calendar app, but in the week view you can't see what the items are. It doesn't have any text there, does anyone know if you can change that? Otherwise its a great app, enough for me to get what I need out of it and its pretty easy to use.

It acts kind of like an alarm clock, going off every 15 - 30 seconds or so until you choose to do something with it (you can mute it though). Im super stoked on it so far.
Good find javelin9! Also from the same developer there is a little app called make appointment that I'm enjoying. Press the icon (generic) and it pops you right into event creation (stock interface though).
