A minimalist-looking but high configurable calendar widget. Bear in mind that this isn't an app (you won't find it on your app drawer): it's a widget so you need to long-press on your screen > widgets > simple calendar widget to set it.
There are three widget size: small, medium and large. You can choose what calendars are integrated with Simple Calendar Widget from settings: local calendar, gmail calendar and any other active calendar on your device. Regarding appearance, you can set different skins (SiMi Clock events included), change background and text color, choose opacity level, font size... It's just amazing how configurable this calendar is. You can set what to show: day of the month/week, date format, time-zone offset, etc.
Simple Calendar Widget has been developed by Alex Gavrishev, an emerging developer focused on screen widget for Android.

Comments and ratings for Simple Calendar Widget
This calendar widget is by are the best I have ever used. Endless customization for the look and feel of the widget. Plus you can download additional skins. Excellent work by the developers.
Works great on S4! Great widget for default S4 calendar. Easy view of upcoming appointments, including my corp Exchange calendar. I haven't messed with settings yet, default settings looks good enough for me after picking desired widget size.
The widget works like a dream. Only wish it worked with more task apps.
I don't know what else to say. This widget does EXACTLY what I want and looks EXACTLY how I want. Perfect. I can't believe I only found it today.
