    Simple Calendar Widget's review

    Published: 2011-08-17, by .

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

    • High configurable
    • Minimalist-looking
    • Local, gmail and other calendar integration
    • There's no weather info
    • There's no clock included

    "Your schedule at a glance"

    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.

    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
    - Select which application opens on click
    - 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.

    - I can't find Simple Calendar in my widget list!
    Try restarting your device.

    - How do I resize the widget?
    Android 3.0+ supports resizing of widgets by default. For older Android versions this can be done by installing an alternate launcher.

    - How do I show the weather forecast on the widget?
    On your desktop Google calendar, just add weather. For instructions, search Google for "Weather forecasts in your calendar".

    - How do I add holidays, birthdays, or sports schedules?
    - Search Google for "Adding interesting dates to Google Calendar" and follow the instructions.

    It used to color code events to match the event colors on my Google calendar. Now it doesn't.

    I've used this app for probably three years on two other phones. I just upgraded to the Galaxy S8 and it no longer works. The widget preview looks great in app, but in the actual widget on my home screen the text is misaligned. It looks terrible and I'm so disappointed. I hope to update this review if the positioning is ever fixed, as this was my favorite calendar widget.

    Loved it for years. Moved to a new phone and now I can't access settings. Crashes every time I try.

    Only shows 1 event per day! What the heck? No matter what I check or uncheck it will only show ONE EVENT PER DAY!

    Crashes constantly. Great app that I've used for years but the dev has stopped updating
