    I can really use some help. I need a calendar pkg that will give the repetitive option for every two weeks, or at least to set on specific days each month. Does anyone know of such a beast?

    The stock calendar? Since it doesn't have a biweekly repeat, you could make 2 identical entries 2 weeks apart, each with a monthly repeat.

    Actually, that wouldn't work, since the monthly only has an option for the nth day of week... So, if you set one for the 2nd Monday, and one for the 4th Monday, it will work until a month comes by with five Mondays (about once per quarter) and then it will be off until the next month with 5 Mondays, then it will be correct again.

    Mine lets me select either "Monthly (every xth Xxxday)" or "Monthly (on day XX)". Perhaps that's an HTC Sense thing then?

    All good thoughts. Thanks. I'll think about it. I went ahead and set them up for weekly, then went through and deleted every other one manually. Bummer way to do things, but hopefully Google will come around with an update down the road. I sent it a suggestion for this feature.

    I found one great replacement - Gemini Calendar. Really good design, smart controls, responsive developer. really promising app, now it is beta only but works stable. It does support repetition every x days/weeks/months and much more.

    I like the Pure Calendar widget, although it does use the stock calendar, it's a great tool.

    Add you event in your google calendar and you will be able to choose the bi-weekly.
    Next time you will sync it with your phone your event will be there.

    I use calendar pad as a widget, I think it's the one with the best display and easiest to read. But it does run over the stock gogle calendar.
