    Default Galaxy S5: Upcoming Events widget gone

    Hey All,

    Coming form an S4 which I loved, had to upgrade when I switched and for a little more went with S5. So far I am okay with everything, but it is missing a widget I use to adore. I do the calendar widget which takes up the whole screen. This is great, and it is still there, but they use to have a smaller widget that would tell you of upcoming events form your calendar. It served as a nice litte reminder daily of what I had coming up. They have a daily widget that takes the chunk of the screen right now, but that is it.

    Does anyone know where I can get a widget that would do the same thing?

    Thanks in advance!

    I use Event Flow Calendar Widget to show what is coming up in the next 2 weeks. It takes up an entire home screen. I also use Simple Calendar Widget to show my next appointment.

    For some reason, I cannot get either of those calendar widgets to display anything except the Settings screens.

    Looked at the options and then hit the Check Mark and no widget. Just the blue icon which brings up settings again.

    You can try Dash Clock. It has notifications for weather, missed calls, callendar events, notes, etc.

    I am coming from the S3 and I used the daily event/agenda calendar widget that would give you a snapshot of the week but seems like the S5 only has the option of showing one day at a time on the event/agenda widget. I don't always have a lot going on everyday so it is nice to see a snapshot of the week as a whole so I know what is coming up.

    Has anyone found a alternate calendar that will allow for this?

    Thanks,
