    Default S planner

    Is it just me or does anyone else think this is brilliant? I've tried a few calender/planner apps and this seems to be the best, looks the best and syncs withy google calendar.

    Nah, I prefer Google's app - it looks neater. S Planner has way too much skeuomorphism going on - a pet peeve of mine. About How many events does your calendar contain?

    Wow - a new word for an old fogey!

    I had to look that up. I am going to start using that word if you don't mind. Like ergonomics for computers.

    But how many times can I use the word "much" in a sentence, skeumorphically I mean?

    I'm so used to using the large size homescreen widget, I rarely open the full Samsung Calendar/tasks/events thingy.

    I forget what it can do!

    I've looked for the S-Planner before on my phone and again just now and I'm still not finding it. Would love to check it out so where the heck is it?

    It's just the stock calendar app.

    I've always used S-planner. I've been using Samsung phones for about 2.5 years now and it's the best Calander for me. Tried others but didn't like them. I like to have it as a full page widget so I can look at my whole months schedule at a glance.

    Yeah it is good. I originally went with the Google calendar but it was too basic, I like to know everything that's going on. I don't sync it with kies though, that has to be the worst bit of software ever written.

    I didn't know if I would like the full page widget when I added it but I honestly use it a lot throughout the day. As you say it's great for glancing at what's going on.

    Before the note I didn't use calendar apps much but I really like this one. I have 4-5 google calenders on it that I have to keep track of so it's nice to have one place where I can view them all easily.

    The widget is great and enables me to quickly add an event, location, participants etc. It has made life easier for me recently when scheduling a crap load of DR appts throughout the month and not overlapping them - which is what happened more often than not before I had the Note 3.

    Sarks.

    Honestly though I virtually gave up on calendars a while ago. Samsung Calendar, Google Calendar , My Calendar, your calendar, Yahoo calendar.
    This won't work with that, don't do that, do it like this. This won't sync with what.
    I just stick important appts on the widget but don't know which calendar I last used so don't rely on it totally.
    I use to sync with old MS Outlook on a pc. I don't touch Google.

    I have just gone in to S-Planner settings and just left My Calendar on. What is My Calendar?

    Worse though is Contacts, that is now a complete mess, I only have phone numbers left on any contact. Syncing, merging, a billion contact options. Thanks technology.

    It is officially Grumpy Old Man Sunday over here. I have to go out and moan!

    Much prefer the s planner to the Google calendar. S planner has been updated recently so they have dropped some of the skeuomorphism

    I'm okay with S Planner, though I only really use the 'Month' view. I like that it actually shows the activities, rather than just the coloured bars in the stock Google Calendar. That said, I prefer the stock Calendar widget on my Home screen, as it is (adjustable) smaller and will list not only 'Today' but days in advance. I have no interest in all the cutesy-poo little icons available in S Planner and have never used my S Pen to write on it - and probably never will.

    I use 'SmoothSync with Cloud Calendar' to transfer dates back and forth to my Mac's Calendar and similarly and from the same developer, 'Tasks' to keep my Mac's Reminders on the same page there.

    So Google Calendar will stop syncing, or is that just events. They probably have something else lined up.

    Google Calendar Sync app to stop 1 Aug. 2014 now what? - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
    Google calendar will continue syncing the same as always. That is about a specific computer app that is used to sync between Outlook and Google calendar using Exchange. That app was actually no longer supported since 2012 but people continued to use it anyway. If anyone was still using it despite it being EOL and unsupported for the last two years, they will need to use a different 3rd party app now.

    It does not affect regular Google calendar syncing and also does not apply to business users who use Google Apps sync.

    Madd54, "My Calendar" is the device calendar. It does not sync with any of your accounts but can be synced to Kies.

    What free 3rd Party apps to you recommend that will Sync Outlook calendar appointments to Android phone?
    I've been using Google Calendar Sync version 0.9.4.1 for years without any issues or complaints. Now August 1, 2014 is quickly approaching.

    I've been looking for an app that similar to Goggle Calendar sync. I need to sync my work calendar only to my personal s3 phone.

    Please advise and thank you in advance.

    They used to call it that before but now it's just calendar. Still, if you use the Google command to "Open S Planner", it opens the calendar. Oh and I use it all the time as well. Very nice app. It's also very quick to sync with Google Calendar on-line. My calendar is color coded to show my appts, my hubby's and my daughters. Excellent job

    Really? I think that's the Google calendar. I'm sure Deb has found it now, but still....

    Screen Shot Man thanks. That is the calendar I have and don't much like. Sheesh, why don't they call it the S-Planner if that's what it is. Going to stick with my DigiCal.
