I've bought and installed iRT Calendar and am much happier, in fact I actually prefer it to Jorte as well. So many thanks.

good thread with a lot of useful information. Does anyone know if any of these calendars supports creation of new events into multiple sub calendars on the Droid itself? Right now, I use Yahoo for my calendar which supports multiple sub calendars. I am also using the CalDav beta for syncing to the standard calendar. I've set up sync events for all of my Yahoo sub calendars and have two way edits working fine. The problem is that when I create a new event on the Droid, it seems to goes into a single calendar instance on the Droid. I want to be able to create an event to MyCalendar:SubCal1 or MyCalendar:SubCal2. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong or someone else has a better calendar suggestion. Any suggestions/recommendations would be welcome.

I am also use the Pure Calendar widget which is nice but that just seems to be a skin sitting on top of the base calendar or base calendar DB.

Guys, please have a look at Business Calendar Beta when you have time. For a beta, is quite OK, and shows some promise.

Thanks for this thread, with updates both old and new. Based on the suggestions here and elsewhere, I'm not running Jorte as my primary calendar, and Smooth Calendar for my desktop widget. Though I also like the Jorte widgets, plenty of nice options there.

So many calendars suggested over such a long period of time, and I just happened upon this thread. Since so many of you are familiar with the features of so many of them, perhaps I could explain what I'm after, and you could make suggestions?

* I need to make settings for every 2, or every 3, weeks. I installed Outlook on my PC just to do this, then sync to my Droid Incredible, but that's clumsy.

* Setting a date in the standard calendar requires scrolling 3 vertical wheels? Really?! Why not a month calendar, where a single click gets you the date?

* Setting the time also requires scrolling 3 vertical wheels. My Pocket PC apps just allow you to type it in, with big numbers.

* One alarm for all, which apparently doesn't repeat. I'd like to be able to set different alarms for different events. Also, have some repeat until cancelled or I hit sleep. Again, my Pocket PC program allowed for first vibrate, then increasing volume, and repeating X times or Y minutes.

* Sleep should have selectable values rather than one set number of minutes. Sometimes I need to delay only 5 minutes, other times 4 hours.

* I like a small widget to show upcoming events. The standard 2x2 agenda widget is fine. I'm not too particular here. If the calendar I select sets the built-in calendar events, with just a different interface, then I could still use this one.

I didn't think I was that particular about calendars, but fine the standard one very clumsy. And indadequate in many ways. So, what do you think I should look at?

Thanks in advance for your help. ;-)

Another Palm refugee here, looking for something as useful and versatile as Palm OS/Palm Desktop (never even got to WebOS).

Anyway, as a result of this discussion I've been using Quick Calendar and it seems to be basically what I need. But: am I thick or is it impossible to delete entries with this app?

And maybe a stupid question: how do you use a calendar widget? I don't see the use of it if I can't edit/create/delete entries. Do people do their entering on a desktop and just use the calendar on their handheld to view where they should be going next or what? If I have to go to a different app to make changes, I don't care how beautiful or up-front the widget is, it seems useless to me.

After using a lot of these cal suggestions Android Agenda Widget seems to be the best out at the moment for me (maybe except for the calendar widget in LauncherPro Plus).

It syncs effortlessly with Google calendar and Facebook. It may look ugly on first start-up but the HUGE amount of customisation options let you change every aspect of the UI. I've got it set up on my Desire with a semi-transparent background (which you can change the colour of as well as pretty much everything else) and white text which fits in perfectly with the minimalist look I've got going on. As well as that it also lets you change things like the syncing interval, the format of the dates/times displayed, 'today/tomorrow' labelling instead of dates (also lets you change the labels 'today' and 'tomorrow' to whatever you want), size of rows, toolbars, what action occurs when you click an eventů.

There are a lot of options so if you're hoping to install this and get it acting like you want it straight away, probably download one of the others mentioned in this thread. And for those after an app instead of a widget this isn't for you.
But for everyone else, seriously, you should check it out.

I've been using that as well, and am reasonably happy with it (although I've been unable to change the event text color to make it different than the date color (the default "calendar" green is too dark on my background.

I'm now trying Gemini Calendar. It gives me the every 2/3 week setting that I need, seems to have better alarm settings & sounds, although just now the standard one went off instead of Gemini's (How the heck do two separate calendar apps know which to display when an alarm goes off?).

Far from perfect, but better, so far, for my purposes than the stock one.

Using CalWidget at present - not entirely happy with it yet.

The best Calendar App I have used by far is the one on Palm devices such as the Treo. Never found anything to match that since. The iPhone Calendar is not detailed enough. Even the iPad Calendar has its limitations, although it does sync with iCal on my Mac (eventually).

Still looking - so this thread is giving me some further ideas to try. Thanks guys.

I changed mine by going to the following section in settings:

Customize Appearance / Text & Font Settings / Text Colors / Text highlights / (select 'Highlight current event' in here) Highlight color

Don't know if you've still got it but if you do I hope that helps!

AppBrain and the market show no entry. I'm trying this from the Czech Republic. Do I have limited access to the market from Europe?

ABSOLUTELY!!!! I agree this may be the calendar I have been looking/waiting for and I have been waiting for CalenGoo since forever! Now I have both and I cant decide which one I will go with when they come out of Beta TWO DAYS apart, but that is a GOOD problem to have.

I think just after playing with both right now that Business Calendar is the front runner. LOL It just needs a month view widget (I would like an agenda widget but I dont have to be greedy) and I will gladly pay for this!

Go to the link

Click on download and you will see a barcode that will link you to it in the market. Hope that helps

Where? There is no "Download" on that page?!
However it's actually academic firstly because I don't have a barcode reader (!) but secondly because I've been in touch with the author of Galengoo and until yesterday there was no Android 1.6 version available. However there is now, I've installed it (it's now available in Market), and am bug-testing it for her. (I'm in the UK on O2 where we're still stuck on Android 1.6, awaiting the 2.2 update.)

I apologize if this was covered earlier in the thread, but are any of these calendar suggestions able to sync with Exchange. I fell victim to the dreaded time out error with the native android calendar app and have been forced to use touchdown. I would love to have a standalone calendar app that did not require me to enter my mail app to access it.

Farther over here in Central Europe, Calengoo was also available a few days later. I still can't get Business Calendar Beta, but maybe that's a 1.6 problem. I also am stuck on 1.6.

Hi guys
I'm new to android from iphone. On iPhone I used pocket informat
Which worked well.
But on android it doesn't have a widget yet so am also using pure
Calendar and android agenda widget apps

Plus have just added gemini calendar for day of week date picker.

So I agree. You do seem to need a lot of apps just to get a decent
Calendar! :-D

Cheers

Are you saying that you can't use touchdown to access your calendar with inputting your pw each time? I use touchdown too, which, first of all, I LOVE!. Second of all, I have no problems accessing any of my data as long as I don't have wi-fi/data problems.

While on the subject of Touchdown, here's my review:

I was a previous Palm user for 10 years. Palm got it right in so many ways with their PDA system. I was lukewarm about the stock organizing apps on both iphone and android. Agenda widget did not impress me and seemed a bit tedious. Further, non of the free apps I tried were robust enough.

I needed an app which worked like Microsoft Outlook, but on my phone. When I found Touchdown to be more of a mobile Microsoft Outlook system, I was quite pleased. I needed something that had powerful corporate email ability, and that would maintain a lot of the functionality that I so appreciated about my Palm phones. In detail, I needed something that tied in contacts, emails, tasks, and tasks associated with emails (flagged items).

I also seriously needed a calendar capable of more than light lifting, and is easy to use on my phone. A lot of calendars I saw were pretty vanilla in terms of their usage, seemingly marketed toward the light and casual schedule keepers. Touchdown's calendar is very robust, and even uses a readable 7-day view of all scheduled items and times.

A nice bonus is that color schemes are followed between Outlook and Touchdown's calendar. I color code all of my calendared items to differentiate between travel time, prep time, meetings, placeholders, and unscheduled tasks. Touchdown nicely mirrors this color system, although in different colors.

Their calendar widgets are nice, easily viewable, and come in all shapes and sizes.

The only drawback, albeit slight, is the $20 price tag. I'm used to considering "app prices," which run only a few shillings. I had to remind myself that this is really like a mobile outlook program that I can use forever, which helped.

Touchdown! Score!

Don't see Touchdown (or BC) on the Market. Is it available for 1.6 in Europe?

My big question is why someone can't just replicate Palm OS, and if Touchdown is the answer, that's great.

I used Memo on Palm OS quite a bit, as well as Notes attached to calendar entries ("description" doesn't compare) and "no time" option for calendar entries. Etc. And a desktop application to see all these things in one place. (sigh) How I miss these things. The only benefit I have so far is the sync on-line with Google, which I do like, but I'd much rather hit the sync button a few times a day and have the Palm OS functions back.

Calengoo looks nice, but mine does not sync correctly. Sometimes syncs nothing, sometimes only partial data. Not impressive.

Love the look of Calendar Pad day view, but can't edit entries? And no default day view?

Generally for many of these apps: have to revert to another app to create/edit/delete entries?

Sometimes can't delete entries at all, or it takes 5 buttons (iRT).

I'm new to Android, and have experience nothing but Palm for the past 5 years, and it's hard to believe that we are all struggling to find what we really need.

I sympathize. As a Palm user for like 10+ years, I sorely miss DateBk6 now that I'm on Android.

Some savvy Android developer needs to take a look at DateBk6, start with that feature set and functionality as a baseline, and run from there making use of Android's expanded abilities. There's a huge untapped market opportunity here.

It's coming, trust me, from the developer of Datebk6. Really.

Default Unsyncing calendar?

Does anyone l know of a good calendar app with the option of NOT syncing to anything? I have a Blackberry Curve, which had a calendar that would stay put on the phone and not sync to anything online. Now I have a Droid X, and I can't for the life of me figure out ow to keep my calendar appointments from going online. This has been an ongoing problem and none of the things that should be working to stop it from syncing work. I'm looking for a separate app that has the option to turn off syncing (and stay off). I am using Offline Calendar, but it's really not very good. Any ideas??

Unless I'm reading your question wrong - you can go into your account settings you can disable calendar sync.

Hi-I recently downloaded the beta Pocket Informant. Definitely not as robust as the WinMo version I loved, but pretty good, does many things people have been complaining they can't do (copy and paste appointments, all sorts of repeat patterns). It's in beta, no widget yet. Also looks nice, has a good task section. I'm using Jorte and the Launcher Pro Plus widget, alternating with PI. Wondering if others have tried PI, what impressions are.

Hi
Yes I'm a PI person from WM and iphone. I'm using it with pure calendar and agenda widget.
Main issues with current version are the horrid event refreshes it does all the time.
But these should be improved soon so I hear

Cheers
Dan

Default Apology in Advance

There are MANY calendar recommendations and MANY posts to read through. I'll try to make this short and sweet.

I want a calendar app that I can use in place of the stock Moto Droid 2 app. If it syncs with the stock app, fine. If not, fine. But I would like something that can sync with MS Outlook PC Version, not exchange server. If the app syncs with the stock app and then to gmail online, that's fine since I use Google Sync to sync with outlook.

My BIGGEST complaint about the stock app...no individual snooze options. I want someting where I can choose how long to snooze.

So that's it...configurable snooze and somehow sync with Outlook. I guess I don't mind if I have to pay a little.

Thanks.

I use calendar snooze free as my reminder and snooze for my calendar. It seems to have a lot of customise options and it's not something you have to configure for each event. You set it's global settings and then it does the work. Have a look at it. I just use the free version. That should solve the snooze problem I reckon.

Just found an app today that's still in beta called Touch Calendar, available in the market. It basically shows you the whole calendar on a grid and allows you to zoom in/out via multitouch. Pretty neat, actually.

I like it.

Default Business Calendar

I just tried out business calendar. I'm not so impressed. For example, I change the start time/date, it keeps the end time/date fixed. So to move an appointment by a day, I have to change both end dates. And the repeat options are exactly the same as on my stock Droid X calendar (not sure whether that's from motorola or google--it says "Calendar" and "Build version 2.2")

Then I tried Touchdown. Much better options for setting up repeating events--great. But then I tried to edit a repeating event. The "edit series" option did nothing--it was like that function didn't exist. The "edit event" option appeared to work, but when I saved it, the event disappeared.

But I was psyched about touchdown because of its capability to do everything--notes as well as calendar and contacts. So I checked out the notes. No capability to categorize them, as far as I can tell. I have 200 notes in 10 categories in my Palm. I wouldn't be able to find them without categories.

So it looks like my notes will be headed towards JadeNote and SimpleNote for notes....and maybe Jorte or calengoo for calendar....

Default Calengoo!!

Just tried calengoo. None of the same problems---looks nice. Only bug was that I had to tell the phone to sync under accounts, rather than telling calengoo to synch, which seemed to do nothing.

I also tried Jorte, but the repetition options in Calengoo seem much better.

Calengoo might be it for me then...

I have been testing Business Calendar Beta and really like it.

I can't seem to get Calengoo to install. Anybody else have that problem??
