The default calendar widgets are lacking, in that they don't display all-day events correctly (or at least to my liking).
For example, today (Sun) is the birthday for two friends, and both the Android and the HTC calendar widget (the small one) don't show those for today, instead they show an all day event for tomorrow! And I don't see a way to edit the settings on those widgets (is that due to Sense?).
I have searched the Market and found a couple of options to try: Agenda Widget and Quick Calendar, but they both have their shortcomings.
Looking for a clean, simple widget that would show (however many) all-day events and other events that are occurring today (or whenever the next appointment really is - maybe it's two days from now).
Even the big widget is relatively useless. I have the baseball teams schedule in my calendar so essentially every day on the calendar has an event. But the widget just shows the same little triangle on every day so I have to click it to see what's going on.
What's the point of it taking up a whole page if I just have to open the calendar anyway? Might as well just remove and add a shortcut for the calendar app.
another vote for smooth calendar. I have it showing me the next 3 appts., it doesn't matter if they are all day or set time appts. they show. Smooth calendar looks better too. Android agenda reminds me of windows mobile.
Did you change your mind on the one you just had posted?
yep gave it another chance and downloaded it and played with it and remembered why i didn't like it the first time and i deleted it. it (Calendar Pad) is the best of the bunch IMO but i still don't like it. all of these widgets are what they are - simply widgets. they are good for a view but to enter a new event that are clumsy and slow and really just a front face interface for the stock default calendar. SO i will just stick to the default calendar and hope that Android improves this.
i love Android but the Calendar is the one area that's lacking IMO. it's the one thing i miss about the old PalmOS.

exactly, that's what I use it as. If I want to see the extended calendar I just go the my last screen on the left and that's where I have the Agenda set. It was just funny that I saw your post, refreshed and it was gone. lol
