    not familiar with the pre calendar, but if you looking for some sort of agenda widget, then try pure calendar widget or android agenda widget. both are excellent and extremely customizable

    I don't remember exactly what it looks like, but try this.

    On an empty screen, add a widget, then add "Calendar HTC", then swipe over to screen 2 of 3, then select. Is that similar to the pre?

    You might want to take a look at iRT Calendar. I don't know what the layout is on the Pre, but they've put out a high functionality calendar replacement.

    Current features:
    Multiple calendar support
    Event icons
    Day view
    Week view
    Month view - show icon, title, or both
    Week/Day views -- display ISO 8601 week number
    Quick goto (day/week/month)
    Advanced saved search
    Quick search All (title/location/description)
    Duplicate events
    Move events to Today or next day
    Preference for default view -- day/week/month
    Preference to start days on Sunday or Monday
    Preference for 12/24 hr format
    Configurable view style
    Time from now
    Current/Next event indicator
    Multiple backup on SD card
    Next event widget

    Pro Version to come should offer even more features (many of which were available on Palm, that personally I'm looking to have again)
    Custom Repeats -- like repeat every other week or every 2 days
    Custom reminder
    Float events
    Mark as complete
    Font style option
    Font color option
    Font background color option
    Snooze individual events
    Integration with Tasks Applications
    Lock time zone preference (being evaluated if possible) -- good for travellers to lock on any time zone
    Event Templates
    Quarter Year View
    Holiday View
    Day View with time increments with the convenience of just entering the title
    Quick New Event
    Add/Edit icons
    Single event display widget with next event button
    Month view -- scroll events up/down
    Month view -- event/icon filter

    Screen shots available on their website. Check it out - see if it's what you're looking for.

    I am using the 2/3 HTC calendar widget and it works pretty well. The HTC calender is similar enough to the Pre that I don't mind it.

    since the build-in calendar syncs with Google all calendar-apps for Android should sync automatically, if they use the provided database.
    That is e.g. true for ScaliCal.

    Thanks so far guys...I tried a few (didn't shell out $ for iRT calendar yet) and I'm back to stock.....The Pre calendar allowed you to simply press on a time slot and type right into it.....drag and re arrange appointments....AND ability to turn off notifications/reminders as default.

    androgk, I do realize the iRT costs $; that's why I suggested looking at their website first. (fortunately, they do have EXTENSIVE information on the application there and you can make an informed decision before shelling out for it) And I will say the developer feedback and support can't be beat. (I was an early tester when they brought it down to 1.6) I'm eagerly awaiting the Pro and/or Ultra versions to get even closer to my old Palm functions, even if I end up shelling out a little more. (we're not going to get any decent apps unless somone can make money at it...

    Former Pre user with new Evo myself. Two things to consider:

    1. Smooth Calendar widget is a nice little tool.

    2. Pimlical (soon-to-be-released Android client). Before my Pre I was a long-time DateBk6 user on the PalmOS. Unfortunately, the dev decided not to develop for webOS while continuing to work on a new desktop app with all the functionality (and more) of DateBk that would ultimately sync with multiple handheld platforms. I just received an announcement from the dev less than 30 days ago of the imminent release of an Android client AND notification that Pimlical now syncs with Google Calendar. For me, this is utopia! Watch for it and it might work for you too.

    HTH,

    Does smooth calendar only have 3 rows? Is it possible to make it bigger? Unfortunately the devs website has nothing to do with his app... horrible...

    Is there a way to have for the reminders additional options than snooze and dismiss. On my old Windows Mobile device I was able to Snooze 15 Minutes/30 Minutes/1hr/1 Day. Any settings??? or app

    If pimlico make a calendar for android i would be willing to pay 20 dollars for it. date book 6 on my treo700p/755p was amazing. i did a 30 day trial with the htc hero a few months ago. the only reason i didn't get that phone is because the calendar app from pimlico wasn't available.

    please god, let it be true that they're making a datebook for android
