About this app

Functional on both phones and tablets, Simple Calendar is the most popular and highest rated minimal calendar widget available. It integrates with your existing calendar to show upcoming appointments directly on your homescreen. It can show the weather, sports schedules, holidays, and more.

***Latest update (2.4.8): Major ad spamming issue fixed, switched to a different ad provider. As requested by many users, we have also released a completely ad-free pro version of Simple Calendar, get it here:***

Features and Configuration Options Include:
- Skins
- Font style and background customization

- Fonts, colors, text size
- Supports tasks using Dato and GTasks

- How do I place the widget on my homescreen?
Long-press your homescreen, choose "widgets," find "Simple Calendar Widget," and drag it to the homescreen. On most Android 4.0 devices, widgets can be found under the "Widgets" tab in app drawer.

Try restarting your device.

- How do I resize the widget?

On your desktop Google calendar, just add weather. For instructions, search Google for "Weather forecasts in your calendar".

This is hands down the best calendar widget. I don't think it is still being developed but it keeps working despite warnings of being made for an earlier Android version. It will be a bummer when it stops working. Devs, 🙏 don't let this die. Still the best on a new Pixel 7. Cleanest looking, true to its name, simple. The best. If you are having trouble, click to open the calendar then go back to settings. I've had to fiddle with it a few times but it is the best.

Was my favorite widget for four years on the Galaxy S6, but now it doesn't run most of the time. The widget always shows loading, and when it is working it crashes repeatedly when you try to open settings. Someone mentioned that this hasn't been updated since Dec. 2013, so sadly I guess we have to stick a fork in it. *the problems arised upon installing on my new Galaxy S10+ and it still runs fine on my S6.

This widget used to work great, but when I needed to try to make an adjustment to it a few days ago, I noticed that it would crash anytime I tried to tap on anything in the settings menu. I haven't had to change anything on it in probably a year, so who knows how long it has been since it has worked properly. I also noticed that it's been more than 5 years since it was last updated. Obviously something is broken on it now and the developers need to push another update out or, if they no longer wish to support it, remove it from the Play Store. Now I need to find a new widget that works just as well as SCW did and has the same size of widget that I need (4x1) but the few that do aren't free (or at least aren't fully functional in their free version).
