    Has anyone else had issues with the calendar widget not showing enough event entries? I have it setup to takeup a full screen, but it's like it's only populating the top half of the widget with events, even though there are many more in the calendar. I can't find anywhere to adjust widget settings though.

    Anyone have any thoughts / tips? Thanks in advance. :)

    I had a question about the widget too - is there anyway to make it show a monthly view? Anything other than the task list it appears to be now?

    I use Business Calendar as well (with 4 calendars) and it works great with several widget sizes.

    I'm a "Sense" guy. and one of the best things with HTC phones is their widgets. They bar none have the best ones (especially the calander). so i asked this same question months ago.

    i got a reply to use "Pure Grid Calendar Widget". it's pretty nice. but not scrollable.

    i might try the Business one that Hunta said...

    That's the wrong Pure Calendar widget. You want Pure Calendar Agenda. That's what I've been using for over a year. I even did some testing for the developer. The app is awesome, it's constantly getting updates, and the dev is extremely friendly/responsive.

    Edit: Also, there's a setting to make it scrollable. Very customizeable/skinnable app.

    thanks a million. i'm going to try it now. thanks


    Just looked. I don't see a month view in the preview? am i just missing something?

    also is it "Pure Calenda widget (agenda)" ???? that the only other one i can find.


    And just so you know, i'm looking for the closest thing to the month view sense type calendar. thanks

    I've heard Android Pro Widgets (APW) has widgets similar to the "sense" widgets

    Edit - sorry, I see someone already mentioned

    Has anyone used the free widgets such as Smooth Calendar? Do you like it? All i need is a calendar widget that when i click on it will launch the Google calendar app so it seems silly to get a large application for it.

    (I know the nexus has a lot of memory space but coming from the Eris my obsessiveness over app size is hard to let go)

    I used Smooth Calendar on my Droid X. Worked we'll! For some reason, I can't get it to work on the Nexus. I assume an update will fix it.

    Ah my bad. I misunderstood what you were looking for. I thought you wanted closest thing to the new stock calendar widget.

    I do have another suggestion, though. If you are willing to switch launchers, get launcher pro plus. It has a calendar widget that is almost exactly like the Sense widget, is scrollable, and also has a side to side swipe feature to switch back and forth between daily agenda and month view. It's pretty slick.

    Thanks to everyone who suggested Android Pro Widgets. I installed the free version and purchased it within 5 minutes. It's exactly what I wanted.

    <3 you guys! :D

    I use pure calendar widgets myself. They have the scrollable agenda widget like the sense agenda widget.

    android pro widgets has good stuff too from what i remember.
