Review from Devashish Chandra
Clean, Customizable and useful. I like this app a lot.. the interface is minimal, clean and shows just what you need.. Would have given it a 5 if not for the frequent crashes that I see. Fix those and it's full points from me.
Recently Started Failing When Opening Settings Motorola Xoom Tablet: recently started failing when I try to open settings. Uninstalled and reinstalled, no help. Still works fine on my moto x smart phone. Was great while it worked, I'd give it five stars when it working. Also, the developer appears not to be committed to the app as they do not respond to email.
Allows you to add tasks not just events It's not just a calendar widget but also a to do list widget. BUT BUT BUT only two to do list managers are included - extinct Astrid and not so famous G tasks. The leading to do list apps like Todoist, trello, google now tasks, wunderlist and any.do are not included. a SUGGESTION: task should also have a checkbox or ability to cross strike through text and should not just become invisible. Still i highly recommend it but will continue to look for alternatives.
Since more than a year tasks don't show up This is a great little product, but since more than a year Google tasks (from Dato Gtasks) don't show up in the widget anymore. Just calendar items. Will there ever be a fix for this? It would be a five star app. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong (although I had it running OK before Lollipop), in which case please help!
Designers were too focused on style over substance This app is very pretty, but that's it. It doesn't do what its supposed to do, its not a proper calendar. Yes its very customizable, yes its very minimalist and simple. But its behavior is terrible. It would be nice if the designers put some actual thought into how a calendar is supposed to behave, rather than just making something that looks nice. Get it only if you want something pretty, not if you want an actual calendar.
No longer remembers settings Used to work great with the GTasks task list, but now doesn't. Each time I wake my phone, the widget says tasks aren't found, and I need to restart Simple Calendar and go into settings and set Tasks to Dato GTasks again (even though it's already set). Only then are tasks visible or launchable from the widget. If this was fixed, it's a great tasks widget.
Custom calender doesn't work I found this to replace another non-functioning calender widget and need it to be able to use the calender app I have in use. It seemed like it was going to go swimmingly until I tried to get the widget to actually respond to my settings. the app kept opening another calender app of which was not on the settings but I guess was default because it wasn't reading my app or something. Nice looking and sleek. If only it wanted to work for me like it promises.
