    Well, it is that time again, my fall college semester is starting up and I need some apps to keep me focused. I managed to sync my School Calendar (even the Patriots schedule) with my Google Calendar, so now I can view everything from Google Calendar.

    I need a Calendar App that has a Desktop client or a even a Chrome app and it has to have a functional app on Android too. Any help is appreciated.

    The Chrome store has an extension for the Google Calendar. Is that what you are looking for, in addition to using the stock calendar app on your device?

    Or, are you looking for alternatives?

    Alternatives first.

    Well after some research I am using Sunrise on my laptop and phone. I just wanted a good app that was decent to have a laptop and phone app and Sunrise does just fine.

    I saw sunrise recently and was thinking of trying it. I think there's also an extension for Chrome. Everything seems Ok with it?

    Yup, the Chrome Extension is essentially an app, I pinned it to my taskbar on my laptop so I can launch it as a separate app whenever I want. It is actually very smooth too. The phone app I have been enjoying as well. It still does not have a month view but it works just fine without it. Outside of Sunrise, Google Calendar is the only app I can find on Android and has a Chrome app.

    Here's hoping more come in the future, but for now Sunrise will do just fine.

    That's the market, it looks way too cluttered. Maybe functionally it is good, but my simple mind can not get past that UI. Even then for pure functionality for just an Android calendar app, I would use Business Calendar.

    Maybe it is my eyes, but it seems cluttered. Sunrise is much cleaner.

    the 4x5 "Month View" Widget is critical to see your month at a view with each event listed in text. and that's why Sunrise is poor.

    I agree month view is critical, but Sunrise excels at everything else, including having a functional app for PC, which makes it better than Jorte in my opinion.

    The market is wrong. Jorte is a mess.

    I am still using Sunrise as well. Not perfect, but better than anything else I have found. Hopefully Android L will help some of the Calendars make their UI more easy to use.

    Cannot agree with Jorte... So messy and scrappy.

    If you are using Google Calender then you don't need an app, just MHO.

    Desktop -> Google Calender from your browser.
    Phone -> There is a calender app on it already.

    Google's native calendar app is not user friendly IMO. Definitely not as easy to read as Sunrise.

    I rather prefer a dedicated app, instead of logging on every time.

    I think the native calendar is okish, but Sunrise is much better. It has a much cleaner widget too.

    I dropped Sunrise yesterday. Month view was annoying and I figured out that I will have to rely on Microsoft services this semester. Sunrise does not allow adding Outlook accounts, so I spent maybe an hour switching to mostly all Microsoft services on my laptop and phone and now I am using the stock calendar with the Windows 8 calendar app.


    Turns out the Windows 8 calendar app is not bad and the mail client isn't either.

    Cal.... I really like the looks and flow of the thing. Plus, it is integrated with Any.do, a really good task app.

    One of the alternatives is to use Calendarplus, available on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....calendar_plus
