    I've looked through every setting I could find in Calendar and I'm at a loss. I have the regular widget on my desktop and it only shows one or two events at a time even though there's space for more, and I have several events per day. The more infuriating part is the widget shows TOMORROWS events, not today's. When I click on the widget the calendar shows my agenda correctly, focusing on today, but the desktop widget does not. Is this just how it works or can i change it?

    I have a similar problem with the Corporate Calendar Widget. When I go to it, it shows me appointments from a few days ago rather than focusing on today. My last phone (Windows Mobile) would fade past appointments so that I could focus on what was upcoming. With this widget everything looks the same and I have to scroll to find today.

    I think the calwidget widgets are better. I go with the 4x2 (4 tiles wide, 2 tiles high). It takes up some real estate but gives me a couple of days' events.

    That was a great suggestion Tim. I just installed it and it's definitely better than the stock calendar widget.

    Might also look at Android Agenda Widget. Can list at least a dozen events (I run it full screen) and quickly link to the calendar. It also has an add button to add event without leaving the widget

    This one is my favorite. I have one whole panel dedicated to it (4X4) lots of options for customization also.
