Hi did you have any joy with finding a solution? I have an issue with not being able to edit one appoinment in a sequence of reoccuring appointments. I emailed HTC and they said yes they are of that flaw but to just sync with laptop and change from laptop which really defeats the object or using an android phone to manage your calendar. I was able to do that on my 3 year old Nokia last year. I do regularly need to set reoccuring apps and then change the odd one. Any ideas?

Thanks Alison

Default Calendar

Is there any calendar out there that has an event template. I have repeatable events that occur on no set schedule. For instance, a massage appt. or haircut, or work day. I'd like go to the date on my calendar then select from a list of pre-made events on a template to insert on that day (time). Had this, and many other great features on my old Palm calendar can't the Android system have this simple feature, too?

That's a cool idea (templates); haven't seen it in any calendars. Worth suggesting to some of the more responsive developers, e.g. calengoo (forum for ideas for new features is here, but emailing the developer might also be a good idea), or pimlical (which might already have that feature--it's probably the most sophisticated option out there, and having not looked there for a little while, I see it has been improved significantly.)

Hi just got an HTC sensation and was looking for a calendar, didn't think there was so much involved in it. I was looking at "jorte" or "buisness calendar" but they all have so many features that I don't need and possibly not got what I want.

All I'm looking for is the ability to change the background colour of individual days, I work shifts and would like to be able to flick through month or week views and see at a glance if I'm working one colour for days and one for nights or plain for rest days. A repeat feature that works on a 4 week (I work on a 4 week rota) basis would be nice but not esential.

Any ideas or sugestions would be apreciated

Default Best Calendar

After posting my initial question I found the best calendar available, hands down. It happens to be the same wonderful calendar I used on the Palm platform that has finally migrated over to Android.
Used to be called DateBook. Check out the Pimlical Calendar by CESD

It's my favorite, too, hands down, but it's for those who are either used to the old Palm Datebk3/4/5/6 or for someone with a complex schedule. It's definitely not for the casual user.

Hi, I'm new to android, so I apologize if this question has been answered elsewhere. I'm looking for a calendar / appointment app or combination that might be able to do the following things:

Sync with a google calendar on my website that simply shows "Booked" for times that I'm unavailable to clients
Have a calendar on my phone that shows the client's name and contact info for their appointment.
Be able to schedule personal appointments (lunch, school meetings, chiropractic etc.) And have them show up in a different color to differentiate from the Client ones.
Have school holidays / Stat holidays show up as a different background colour, or something else to differentiate.

Right now I'm using Smooth Calendar on my homescreen and GO calendar on another screen.

Smooth shows me close events without using too much space (I have contemplated a change to Android Agenda widget, because it kinda looks the same, but with the chance of showing more events and scrolling through them). GO calendar is your average 4x4 calendar widget, you can swipe to change months and click on any given day to show what (if you have one) event you have on that particular day. There is also a button to add an event to any particular date. Both of these use the stock calendar, so I can import other calendars from Google and whatnot.

Since I've yet to use my Galaxy for task management, these two fulfill my needs to a T.

Pimlical/A allows for irregular repeats, as well as most any other combo you can think of, really.

Angry Just as frustrated.

Switching from Windows mobile to Android, what a mistake!!!!

It's going back years in development. Calendar: I miss Agenda Fusion, which had everything one could wish for. I have actually harrassed the developers and begged them to develop similar for Android.

Today I use:
Jorte
Pocket informant

And what's this crap about making it so complicated to see birthdays, imported from the address book? And icons, I need icons!! LOL!

PLEASE any developer out there. Why not create a really good calendar with a simple widget? Look at Agenda Fusion for Windows mobile.

Still using Business Calendar, with "Smooth Calendar Widget", it's a much better widget than any of the Business Cal widgets. Pulls all contacts birthdays (and I didn't even ask it to)... not sure what cyberandre is talking about.

Totally TC, I mean it took me a month or two to find the calendar and task (I use a dif app for tasks, can't remember which one now lol), but I'm very happy now, people just need to try new apps for a bit, you get there in the end.

You can set up the sync to other calendars in your gmail account online. Then use the stock phone calendar program to select the calendars you wish to view. Then you can use what ever app looks best to you. I use Calendar Pad Pro.

Also, Pimlical Calendar isn't available on the Market yet, is it?

No, you buy it directly from the Pimlical website, updates are via the app once you've got it installed.

Any calendars sync Google Tasks? Business Cal doesn't. Tried Jorte and doesn't (although does have a Task import CSV file option). I started using Google Tasks since they are very easy to use in Gmail and Calendar on a PC, but don't show up on a synced phone calendar. Not a big deal since I have Tasks bookmarked, but they do show up on Month and Agenda views on a PC.

I use Astrid, Pimlical works nicely with it and integrates my tasks right in with my calendar stuff.

Thanks. I did find the info on how to do it, it syncs separately, I guess you need to manually do it. From the Jorte website:

About Google Tasks synchronization
Tasks synchronization is not automatic at first as Google calendar is.
By performing account setting, it can synchronize on Jorte side.

1) Click [Menu] button on Jorte "Tasks & Memo" Screen.
2) [Synchronize] -> [Task Account]
3) Click [Menu] button and Tap [Synchronize].
4) Tap [Accept] button on Security Screen. (Android 2.0 or more)
5) Click [Menu] button and Tap [Synchronize].


I can't find a way to change the real tiny font size in the tasks section at the bottom. I'll keep trying it a day or two more, but probably going back to Business Cal. because of better readability.

A bookmark link to Google Tasks works fine, and actually a bookmark to the web Calendar actually pulls it up in Agenda format which is nice (and real big font if your browser is set that way).

... I just need to go buy me an HTC Flyer, then any of them would have better fonts!

Calengoo has built in Tasks which syncs with google.

Calengoo's sync is so fast compared to android sync whic I believe is also used by Business Calendar. It makes a huge difference if you have a lot of events. I have over 5,000.

I'll be dead before I have 5000 events. I might have 50 (if you count holidays, contacts birthdays, Cowboy's schedule, and tasks) I'm about to trash all my calendars and just use Smooth Calendar widget for viewing and Google Task bookmark for editing.

Do any of the options mentioned allow for regenerating/recurring tasks, and especially reminders about tasks with alarm postponement options? Syncing to/from Outlook would be nice as well.

Default Yahoo and exchange synch?

Hopefully this hasn't already been covered, but are there any apps or widgets for android that will synch and merge yahoo and exchange calendars to be viewed as one calendar together? I can do this on my itouch, but haven't figured out a way to do this on my samsung galaxy tab...

Thank you,

I like the sound of this app just for this aspect alone.

Does it allow you to multi select random days/dates for the same type of event?

e.g.
For my childs after group class, the days change from week to week. So I'd like to be able to set up the first day, then have some sort of a drop down mini calendar where i can just randomly select the respective days and hit "Done". Which would result in the current event being added into the dates that i've selected.

Beat's having to..... "select day, paste event, Done", "select day, paste event, done", "select month, select day, paste event, done" so forth and so on.

Potterson, Calengoo will allow you to copy events to another day in two quick ways:

1. you can drag and drop, or

2. when you go to any new date and hit the time, there is a pull down menu beside the events description box which has copies of your last 20 or so enterred events. If you click the one you want, it will automatically be copied.

Brilliant. I just downloaded Jorte, but I will definitely check out Calengoo as well, just for that one aspect. That's the beauty of all these apps, if one isn't good for you, there's almost certainly one out there that is.

Thanks for the info.

I got me a new Galaxy Player 5.0 and I like it's default better than any other I've tried. It's a bit like Gemini. I tossed Business Calendar in favor of default.

I've got an Incredible 2. The standard Gmail app works fine, but I can't get any of the native apps to sync with Google calendar, docs, or photos; I don't even get to add a calendar when I click "add calendar", and I haven't found an option to log in separately to the gmail account I want to use. In fact, I think it's even dropping the appointments I put in. (I also hate gmail's contacts interface, so I'm shopping for that as well, but I'll search for that separately) .

I desperately need a reliable, syncable calendar for my work and personal appointments. Docs and photos would be nice too, but the calendar is critical. I haven't read all of the 14 pages on this thread, but folks are mostly talking about how a calendar looks and handles tasks. Could anyone just list which of the popular ones (Jorte, Pure, Calengoo, Smooth, or another one you like) can sync with Google?

Alternatively, if someone can point me to a troubleshooting thread on the native Calendar app, that would be just great.

I know Jorte and Business Calendar sync with Google Calendar just fine, and you can set the Google calendar to be the default location for new events (unlike the stock calendar app). I've been experimenting with both and haven't settled on one or the other yet.

I tried Gemini but it was just too fricken ugly to tolerate.

I use the stock calendar with two different widgets. For quick reminders, I have on my home screen Simple Calendar Widget and on another screen I have GO Calendar widget, which shows me the month and on a corner the days I have booked for something.

For the time being, I barely sure the calendar, so this fits my needs; I might change to a more powerful calendar app in the future, though.

A calendar is the only thing that'll make up for how ditzy I get when my desk disappears under piles of case files. I moved to Droid 2 months ago from a Palm Centro, a mediocre phone but outstanding organizer with desktop sync to multiple computers, so I'm at a loss without a calendar I can update on the computer and sync to a phone or vice-versa!

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone; if there are others, please add on!

If you're a Palm vet, perhaps you were familiar with Datebk... in which case you should check out Pimlical for Android (same author, but not on the Marketplace yet):

Pimlico Software home page

Wow! I had no third-party apps on the Centro (never bothered to get email or web), but Pimlico's desktop and Datebk app look great. I'll look at the others as well in case there's a free app that won't require a learning curve, but Pimlico has that familiar Palm feel and look, and it's probably worth $25 for the pair. Say what you want about Palm, but it is (but soon will have been) very good at what it does.

I was a 10 year Palm vet (I have to say that a palm out of the box from 10 years ago is still way better than any Android stock calendar, contact or memo app). I use Calengoo on my phone and just use a browser to access the google calendar on any computer. Compared to before, it is nice not having to go and sync every computer because google is always synced up for any computer. I do use Pimlical on one computer as a safety backup just in case this whole cloud thing disappears.

So Calengoo does sync with Google calendar. Good.

Palm really is a nice little system; I haven't seen a combination of contact list and calendar that comes close to how easy it was to use. I still need to find an app that will do better at displaying contacts, but the calendar is my current mission.

BTW, I just tried Business Calendar and it sure flows a lot better than the stock calendar; the only issue is that it didn't interacted quite fine with both my widgets which was really disappoiting. I recall Gemini Calendar working decently with them, though, but that 'metal' interface is just so ugly and cumbersome.

I've got Calengoo on my iPad so installed it on my new Gingerbread android phone. I've had problems dismissing alarms so looked at their website, and it hasn't been updated for a year, which is pretty bad, so I'm dropping it.

I have had about a dozen updates of Calengoo in the last year. If you already own Calengoo, shoot an email to the developer with your problem. He is very responsive especially with any bugs.

Very, very responsive.
I'm wrong, but I went to CalenGoo for Android Tutorial and then to CalenGoo for Android which is in fact not the latest updates page at all.
News is the latest page.

I use 'Toch Calendar'. IT has more possibilities for repeat and it stil uses the Standard backend. As widget, I use 'simpel calendar'. I've changed the fonttypes a little to make it look orderly. Also you can select the Toch Calendar to open for when you tap on the widget.


I use Astrid for managing my todo's. It has its own widget.

hope this helps

Default Calengoo update added floating events

FYI calengoo's latest update just added "floating events".

You have to be a former Palm and Datebk5 user to appreciate this calendar feature.

Confused Calendar needs

I don't ask much of a calendar - I just need to set up recurring appts (ex. choir practice every other Tues) AND - this seems to be lacking in all that I've looked at - COLOR CODING. I want to be able to see at a glance whether it is my husband, my son, my daughter, me or the family that has something coming up. I realize most apps are designed for business, but I can't be the only one who needs/wants to use colors like I do in Outlook or Google.
