App is good and does its job fairly well. However there's a few things I want to point out: 1)When creating a custom event, you cannot go further back than 1900. This is a problem since there are events that Wikipedia (understandably) doesn't consider worth listing, that I want to add for myself, but this arbitrary limit severely hinders customization; 2)There should be a way to set notifications to trigger one day (ideally more) before a certain date or event, or at least show up in the widget.

Dear Daniele, really appreciate your feedback. Please consider updating the app to the latest version, as it is now possible to add custom events that happened earlier than 1900. If you have questions or suggestions please contact us at historical.calendar@gmail.com.

I use this App every day. Very interesting. I bought the license to remove the ads, but somehow, my license disappeared, and the ads came back! And every time I try to restore my license or buy another, nothing happens. Frustrating... Amendment: Alex responded right away via email regarding my issue. After several suggestions, we both agreed the issue was with my phone (I had recently updated the OS with an android Update). As it turns out, the problem stems from Google Play Store/Games not recognizing my previous purchase. Alex was very responsive and willing to help. Thanks again Alex!

Recently I became more and more intrigued with history and I even planned on making a calendar in which I would record historical events and with that have an overview over every day. I hoped this would help me connect historical dates in my mind...Turns out that this is a hell of work, so I gave up. Today, half a year later, I stumbled across this app that not even fulfills my expectations, but even exceeds it! (It's even available in many different languages...!) I highly recommend this app!!!
