Review from Eugenio Angueira
Awesome calendar widget Clean, simple and works well. I like the ability to customize it and that it supports the lockscreen widget feature of Android 4.2. Would like more customization for that widget, though.
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.
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.
It crashes when I open settings 😭 I just got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A with Android 6.0.1 but it just won't work. I've had this app on my phone for a couple of years and have absolutely loved it! My phone also runs 6.0.1 with no problems. I hope you can fix this so I can give you 5 stars again. Please, will you fix this?
Abandoned by the developer, but still great Very customizable and works well, and the icing on the cake is to export and import configuration that still works across all Android versions. Only that it has not been updated for more than 3 years! Reminders in Google Calendar don't show because it's a more recent feature from Google. Would be great if the developer could breathe some life into the widget. Sad.
Good looking widget if you want something to display calendar events that can be customised to match your colour scheme. Has issues with text alignment when choosing alternative layouts, and this doesn't look like it's going to be fixed, so great as a free option but don't bother buying Pro.
