Default HTC vs android calendar

Just got my wife the Incredible and I was surprised to see that the HTC calendar is different than the one on my Droid 1. Is there any way, without rooting, to use the stock Android google calendar on the Incredible?

Yeah, just select the google one instead of the htc one. They are both on there.

I'm only seeing an icon that takes me to the HTC calendar. You're saying that there are two icons listed under apps - the HTC and the regular one?

I think there is only one Calendar app on the Incredible, but it can sync with your Google calendar.

There is only the htc calendar app, however there is both an htc and a stock android calendar widget. It does not, AFAIK show the entire month like the htc one. It just shows your appointments.

Ok, I had found the widget. This leads me back to my original question: which is whether there is a way to get the stock Android calendar app. Sounds like the final answer is "no."

It's too bad because on the stock android calendar app in the 7 day view you can see all of your appointments listed on each day. Not so on the HTC calendar.

I was hoping for a way to put the android calendar on the Incredible.

Stock calendars are useless. There're several good alternatives on the market, I'm currently using a beta of calengoo.

If your have your phone rooted, over at XDA some people seem to have been able to install the stock calendar.

Here is the link: Default Android Calendar - xda-developers

Other than that, the original calendar isn't available.

I like the stock android calendar (on the droid1). That being said, calengoo does seem pretty slick. In beta. Current version expires January 14.
Don't want to root this phone.

Looking forward to seeing the new incredible HD (Thunderbolt). Being HTC I'm thinking it will have the same calendar issue.

FOUND A SOLUTION!!!

It's kind of funny, I read this thread several days ago when I bought my new HTC Thunderbolt, and I shared your frustration, Eurosteve. Those who have responded to your post don't seem to understand the issue at all. I hate this HTC calendar, with the 7-day view that doesn't show the text.

But it is possible, without rooting. It was fairly simple to accomplish, I just backed up the APK from my old rooted Droid using a nifty app called Super Manager, transferred it to the SD card of my new phone and then installed it onto my TB. Super Manager requires root, but since I've extracted the necessary APK file (app installation file), you shouldn't need to root your phone. Just download the APK that I'm attaching to this post, install and you will have your trusty old calendar.

I've found one quirk so far: when you open the Calendars menu (to choose which calendars to sync and display), you will probably get a force close. Don't worry, just switch over to the HTC Calendar app and select the calendars; it will instantly update on the stock calendar app. That is a minor inconvenience for me, to be able to use my trusted Droid calendar. I love the Thunderbolt, but I absolutely abhor everything about the HTC Sense UI.

Hope this helps! Please post if this method is successful for anybody, or if there are any issues.

We normally don't allow posting of any APK files, as they involve copyright violation.

In this case, you've posted a standard Google component with source that ought be in the AOSP repository, so - it's ok.

Suggest you read the links in my sig so you stay on the side of truth and justice.

This is probably not relevant anymore, but I offer a stock calendar replacement on the market with a few enhancements. You can find it at: Calendar Plus
