Pure Calendar. Costs $2 I think. It's incredible. I rely on it daily for work. The 4x4 widget is perfect.

calwidget is pretty ugly though.


EDIT:

Ok just tested a load.
For a full agenda widget, the app "agenda widget" is quite nice.
For a smaller widget that shows 3 items 4x2 use smooth calendar.

I am replacing my small HTC Sense widget with smooth calendar as a result :P

I use my calender mainly as a to-do list. I wasn't terribly happy with the stock calender either but I'm reasonably content using it combined with the QuickCalenderWidget. It's compact and clear and acts like an agenda for me.

Calwidget is fine for me. Looks fine as well. A bit annoyed that it cuts off part of the calendar if you have a large one.

I used CalWidget a while ago and it kept force closing on me, so I bought Pure Calendar (both agenda and grid, and I use em both) and haven't looked back since.

I tried CalWidget, and it was nice to see the agenda there on the home screen, but I tried a few more and stumbled across S2 Calender. It has a 2x1 widget (smaller is better for me), showing an entrire month in that spot. It lists the dates by color, depending on what appointment you have that day, and will underline/box/whatever you toggle for all day appoints, with the marker being in the color of that calender. When you touch the widget, it pulls up an active agenda widget allowing you to scroll ahead through your next 8 or 10 appointments, pop-up style, with each listing in the color of it's respective calender, with the date/time. I can't recommend it enough.

EDIT: having just figured out how to put in a QR, here's the one for this killer widget

Ryan, thanks for that. I gave it a quick look but I really have come to rely on the agenda being the default. I'd like to see an app that has both. Let me easily bouncing FROM agenda (as the default) to this style of calendar display for homing in on things like a free day for doctor appointment, etc.

Can't agree more....there's a real shortage of decent calendar apps for Android that are well integrated into a SINGLE, slick or polished app/widget.

FYI, I'm testing out the paid "Pure Calendar" widget on my Sprint Hero. The only key advantage it seems to have over the native HTC calendar widget is the text-only (sigh) WEEKLY LIST (aka "agenda") of everything in the next seven days. However, it's neither layered nor graphical, so it's not useful for looking for free time slots (i.e., like the Palm Pre's nice layered weekly view is). And I cannot get it to show anything other than the next seven days....cannot move to any week one wants.

Clicking on it will bring up whatever default app one tells it to use for full calendar functionality.

The same guy also has the "Pure Grid Calendar" widget. That has an option to show a monthly view with an "event timeline" that sort of tries to show event length and free time on a given day....not quite as nice as what I was hoping for, but getting there.

In my mind, one almost has to buy BOTH this guy's apps to get an Android calendar that's even close the Pre's....with both of them installed, one can at least see a text listing of the next seven days, and then jump to the other one to get SOME visual idea of free time (anyplace there's no horizontal event timeline is free time...). Much more of a pain than a single app that offers both.

Basically, I want THIS for Android....

...you can't tell from the month view image, but on the Pre, the shading is slightly colored to go with each calendar one has. Man, what a nice job Palm did on that calendar app...

I just need a useable week view like this: http://www.keenerliving.com/wp-content/aoweek.jpg

BUT I don't want it in a widget - I'm not a widget person. I want it built into a full calendar app with month, day, agenda, tasks, etc.....

I use Android Agenda Widget on one screen of my Hero. It shows me all upcoming appointments. It allows me to select which calendars to view. I can view, edit or delete appointments. I can set the update interval and best of it is free.

I have tried some of the other apps listed above and really dont think any of them compare to this. calwidget looks good on the surface but then when you click an appointment all you can do is go to the settings for the widget.

Then on another screen of my Hero I have the main HTC calendar widget displying an entire month. This shows a small icon on days where there are appointments.

The best calendar app I've ever used is on the iPhone/iPod platform - CalenGoo. I wish they'd port it over to Android.

Exactly, a very good, 2 column week overview, in readable format.

CalenGoo does this perfectly, on the IPhone

PureCalendar, CalWidget, and the others I have seen on Android are disappointing for REAL LIVE use, at least for BUSINESS USE

Also, entering an appointment is terrible in most calendars.
a decent date and time chooser would help a lot.
AnCal does a good job, but seems to have no connection to the real google-calendar.

I've just found Calendar Pad in my quest for a week view calendar. It doesn't look pretty (very Outlook-esque), but it does the job.

Note: it's only a viewer.

Try reinstalling it from the market, then remove the widget (hold, then drag to the trash can at the bottom) before uninstalling it. No guarantees, but it might work.

Default Calenar pad! Awesome

(CalendarPad) Okay, now I finally have what I need in a calendar for the Eris! WhooooooooHooooooooooooooo! This is a great FREE app! I can see exactly what I want week view, month view, etc.

You can use it as an Android Widget on a home screen as well, but there's no 4x4 version or week version; when it has that it will be perfect, but this is great.

I also use CalWidget as a widget on one of the home screens and like it for seeing today and tomorrow's agenda.

Thanks everyone for testing and reporting.

Yep the way it cuts off the calender is a big problem for me. I also have a large one

I've just downloaded smooth calender (thanks) and it's a much better solution for a 1x4 widget, I just wish it had the option to be completely transparent with black text.

Thanks for recommending CalendarPad; I've installed it and it looks good. On the Nexus One, at least, though, there is some sort of graphic across the top that obscures the day names and the dates. It's there in both Month and Week views. It doesn't really interfere with anything, but it doesn't seem to do anything, either, and looks bad.

I've emailed the developer about that, as well as sending him my request for a year-at-a-time view like the standard Windows Mobile calendar app has. If I get a reply I'll try to remember to post additional information here.

Are there still no calendar apps for Android that can sync to an external CalDAV (non Google) calendar?

This is absolutely essential for corporate use, and something the iPhone has had from day 1.

I just wish Google would release the source code to the default Calendar app, so I could hack it in myself. I just don't have the time to implement a fully working calendar from scratch...

Does CalendarPad do meeting alarms for X minutes before a meeting AND on the moment of the meeting? (Unlike the Android built-in... which inexplicably doesn't sound an alarm at the time of the meeting.)

The closest I have gotten to an excellent 'week view' version is CalendarPad with the default settings set for week view. When the widget is tapped, the week view opens.

CalendarPad is just a 'front end' or window for the stock calendar.

Do any of the alternative calendars mentioned here allow for "repeat" entries other than "one time", "daily" "weekly", "monthly" & "yearly" ??? I need to set up an item for "every 2nd week" and the basic calendar thta came with my G1 Android does not permit that sort of period. Thanks ....

Couldn't you set up two appointments that both trigger monthly? One triggers on the 1st week of the month every month, and the second triggers on the 3rd week of the month, every month.

Have you tried adding an external calandar to your google calendar? Thats what I do and it works brilliantly. Make them each a different color and choose which ones to display (sync) on your phone.

Well, that's not the same as "every two weeks" -- I think the poster was asking for "every second Tuesday" and not "1st and 16th of every month." (If you were being paid every two weeks and your company wanted to switch to paying you the same amount twice a month, I think you'd be upset -- you'd be missing out on two paychecks a year.)

OK ppl I have and am using some of the apps suggested and I love the look BUT what I am looking for is an app that changes the hideous defuault calendar I am forced to use when I add new events. Is there an app out there that replaces the default not just the look. I want it to look nice and look nice while I'm making edits or adding events.
Is this too much to as for? Or am I missing some thing? I use Calendar Pad and Calwidget.

Alright, I must confess, the 1st time I read thru this string I was a bit in a hurry. I have since read every post & tried most of the recommended apps. My conclusion:
IMHO at this point Cal pad and calwidget are the best options for me. I was just frustrated because, like many of you, I wanted 1 app or widget to do it all. Thus making me search for a repplacement default calendar (which is just not needed if we could find the perfect 1 app\widget) or if we just continue to use the two I currently use.

I think we should continue to do what we do here (some real good help\ideas floating around) AND we need to email the devs and let them know exactly what we are looking for PLUS we should leave helpful reviews or comments at the market (esp. on the paid apps) to let other prespective users the pros and cons of said app. I can't begin to tell you how many times a well written comment has helped me to decideyes or no on an app.

Just saying, "this app sucks", doesn't help anyone. LOL!

All I want in a calendar app: when you set an appointment for 10:30 and add a 5 minute reminder, that the alarm goes off at 10:25 AND at 10:30 (the actual appointment time), and continues to go off every 5 minutes until it's shut off without having to hit the snooze button.

I'd be willing to live with everything else about that calendar app as it is.

How could the built-in calendar possibly have been released in a state where you set an appointment for 10:30 and nothing happens at 10:30?

I read through all the posts, and couldn't find a duplicate issue like the one that I am having. I have (of course) the main 'default' calendar on my moto droid which is attached to my 'personal' gmail account. I also have the pure calendar widget which is everything I want/need for a quick view of appointments etc. (also is working great with sweeter home)
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?

Default Calendar Pad upgraded!

The android app Calendar Pad has been upgraded, and it has also fixed the "weird silver line" on N1.

The developers has also released a "pro" version, with color customization and Calendar settings. Not sure whether I'll by it or not, but even without the Pro the upgrade seems to be great.

Confirmed that the odd graphic across the top is now gone.

The app also now has a replacement for the standard day view that you can choose to use or not: the whole day fits on one screen, with blocks from 00-06, 06-09, 09-12, 12-15, 15-18, and 18-24. Events are shown as vertical lines along the left side, labeled with start and end times; all-day events appear at the top on the right side. It's a much more useful organization than the native view that has one-hour blocks and requires scrolling to see the whole day.

I personally use Agenda Widget. I've tried all the free ones, CalWidget, the one that comes with the built-in calendar, and the one that comes with Touchdown (I have to have this to replace my blackberry, great app just wish it didnt' cost $20), etc., and I've found Agenda Widget to have the best combination of East of Use, Looks, Free, and customization.

You can try the new iRT Calendar. It has nice Search All function and Saved search features. You can also quickly go to any day with it's nice Go To view. Plus you can attach icons to events. This calendar app has a potential! It costs $2.99 as of today.

Here is the link to their website: http://www.irtwebsolutions.com/

As of now it says tested on Droid 2.0.1. It is in the Android market, I can access it using my Droid.

Search for Calendar, it should be third on the list.
