    Question Calendar & Agenda Widget Recommendations?

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a calendar-agenda widget that shows:
    - calendar in month view
    - agenda (either [1] for all days within the month view or [2] for today only in a dedicated region of the widget, but can switch to the agenda for another date I select)

    Preferably this would be a widget only as I'm happy with using the stock/Google calendar app.

    The closest widget I've found to meeting my needs is Calendar Widget: Month+Agenda. However, my main gripe is that I would like to be able to view the agenda for a date I select on the widget without opening the calendar app (it gets annoying to jump back and forth between the widget and calendar app to view the agenda on specific dates).

    Thanks for any and all help.

    Note: I also posted this in the Android Applications subforum, but thought this might get more exposure here instead.

    Once you are in the calendar app why would you need to go back to the widget?

    I guess it's habit that because I just came from a month view (in the widget), I naturally hit the back button to return to that view.

    Essentially, I'm looking for a widget that can display my agenda/events for any given date in a month without having to open the calendar app. Again, I'm happy with the stock calendar, so ideally I won't need a new app.

    I use Calendar Status Pro. It installs on the notification shade. I also use Chronus to put the widget on the lock screen or just a widget in one of my home screens.

    I blacked out my bills, everything can be color coded etc.

    Both go up to 4 weeks. When you click on an item, it takes you to that item. You can set it to go to the calendar if you want.

    Thanks for the recommendation, but unfortunately I'm looking for a widget that will also show the calendar in month view. Not an agenda that will list my events for the next month. Hope that makes sense.

    I use Business Calendar Pro. Tons of widget sizes, has the month view you are looking for and you can choose to show lines or text on the calendar.

    I was using the Business Calendar app on my last phone. I think it'll cover what he needs. I liked that app.

    I can't recommend Business Calendar enough. It's a great app with an awesome widget with month, week, and agenda views.

    Thank you all for your recommendations. I'll try these out to see if they suit my needs and report back. I may have tried one or two already, but even so, I'll give them another go.

    I have been using android pro widgets for a long time now. It has a month view for the widget and syncs with Google calendar well. It is also pretty easy to add events and look at agenda list too. Not free but well worth it for me. Has themes too.

    Hey if you like the status bar agenda try this one. I tried status pro but you can't interact with it. It just sits there. This one is hooked up to your calendar. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...k.statusagenda

    I have also been very happy with Business Calendar Pro. But it's a different calendar app, and not just a widget that looks at the stock calendar, so maybe not what the OP is looking for.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. So far Android Pro Widgets has grown on me the most, but not quite to the point where I've bitten the bullet on purchasing it.

    While they are nice, I've found that the calendar apps tend to have added functionality that I just don't need or want (at least not now). As I mentioned earlier, I've been happy with the stock calendar and would prefer not to have a redundant app. I'll definitely keep them on my radar when/if I'm looking for a more robust calendar.

    Thank you again and if you know of any more widgets out there, I'm all ears!
