Best alternate calendar entry app?
The default calendar is bad, the date picker is bad, the repeat functionality is bad, there are not many options, it defaults to the built-in DB not the Google one, even if you disable the built-in one. My question is what is the best calendar entry alternative?
I'm using Gemini Calendar instead since you can create multi-day events easily from the calendar view, it has flexible repeat options (every Tues/Thursday for example) and options to include a clickable phone number. But I am wondering if there is something that works better, as this still has a way to go in usability IMO.

Actually it looks like the Pure Widgets let you do bi-weekly using their native entry interface, though it is a bit weird, you have to set the end date, can't leave it open-ended. Still Gemini though is the only one doing everything. Just it is ugly IMO, and has limited view option within the app itself.

I use the Google calendar. It sets up repeat fine. You don't have to do it on the PC at all. Just use your browser in full site mode if need be. I DON'T like the stock app that links to the Google calendar though. I miss my Palm Treo today screen. I like having a list of up coming events on my main home screen. I found the perfect app for it. Smooth Calendars. It links the Google calendar and then you can set it how you wnat. It's on my main page and it list three items and if more are on that day it scrolls through them. It looks like the widget that comes stock. The problem I had with that was it always showed what was coming up tomorrow even if what was scheduled had not occured yet. Try Smooth Calendars, it shows what is happening today. And depending on what is happening, it might show tomorrow and hte next day if nothing is coming up today.

And to the previous poster, yes the native app does repeat just fine, but only for the specific types of repeat that it supports.
EDIT: Something else is going on. Gemini calendar is picking up the 2-week event, but not it's repeat events. Weird.
