    I'm not a fan of the stock Calendar on this phone. Can anyone recommend an app or widget to replace it? I'm willing to buy it if it's really good and works. I've tried Jorte Calendar for free, and it's much improved on the interface, but unfortunately it's broken (all events are one day off - and it's evidently a known issue).

    Thanks in advance

    Pure Calendar Widget is nice. I use that.

    You ought to try Android Pro Widgets. The have a lot more than just the calendar and they can be themed for ICS.

    I've always used "smooth calendar" in the market. It's free and looks good. (note: it doesn't replace the stock app)

    I use Business Calendar. It was free via the Amazon App Store App-of-the-day or whatever, but that was a while back.

    It still saves calendar entries to my Google calendar and in essence is merely a front end for the stock calendar.

    I prefer it because the widget options are far greater (you can create widgets for specific calendars and many other options). Also, the view in the actual app is quite customizable and the week view allows you to drag to expand the days you're viewing. Quite nice.

    Free version

    $4.99 version

    I've used Jorte for quite a while now. I never had an issue with it being a day off. That would be bad news. There was an update yesterday. Maybe that was taken care of.

    I've tried Jorte, Pure and Business Calendar and I think I'm leaning towards Business for ease of use and interface. Jorte is cool too, except it's still broken. Jan-Mar is correctly lined up, but starting in April the dates are off 1. I've emailed the developer.

    Thanks for the advice
