Simple Calendar Widget is a minimalist calendar for your Android home screen

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.

In summary, Simple Calendar Widget is minimalist regarding appearance but really complete regarding customizing. Recommendable.

Try restarting your device.

    Absolutely beautiful and super-customisable. Except for that stupid empty day area I can't seem to be able to remove - it doesn't make sense for me, I like the date displayed inside the events and don't need to see it twice. Please please please fix this!
