Android Calendar app – aCalendar

Ok, you can now stop asking ‘What’s the best Android calendar app?’   I’ve tried several and this is by far my favourite.

…and it’s free!

The navigation is smooth and intuitive. From the month view, swipe up or down to navigate through the months or swipe a visible week to the left for week view. Also from month view, swipe a specific day to the right for day view. Does this sound confusing? Play with it for 5 minutes and you’ll be hooked.

Another feature I use regularly is within the appointment setting options. When entering an appointment also enter the address where you are meeting, so that when your alarm goes off it will offer to take you to Google maps to give directions. 

A widget is also available so you can have your coming week visible on your homescreen.
