    I'm getting my Droid X on Tuesday, coming from BB Storm2. Is there a calendar app/widget that functions more like a bb calendar? For instance, when in the calendar, I want to be able to click some button to toggle from a daily view, to a weekly view, to a monthly view. I don't care if the app/widget is free or paid.

    I guess im just the opposite, I actually prefer pure calendar widget or agenda calendar widget. Both can be found in the market with great customizations.

    It doesn't get a lot of talk here, probably because it's not free, but take a look at iRT calendar, too. When the "Pro" version comes out later this year, I think it may be the best available, at least for my needs.

    You'll discover that all the calendar apps available today are weak compared to what you're used to.

    Big fan of Pure Calendar widget because it works with Touchdown AND Google Calendar... Two lives, work and home. Want to see both, but want to keep them separate. :-)

    On Jorte the entry fields are too dark when entering an event, is there anyway to lighten them?

    Greydarrah, if all you need is an app/widget which allows you to click a button/option which will allow you to view your calendar in day, week, month mode, you can just try the built in Android calendar widget. Once installed, you will see - Agenda at the top of the widget. Next, click on the Agenda heading and you will be taken to a full list of events. Next click on the calendar icon on the bottom left side. Next, click on the Menu button and you should now see the option that you are seeking - Day, Week, etc. Hope this is what you were looking for.

    What I really want is to have ANY calendar app/widget that upon clicking it's icon, it will open to a default view of today's calendar...just today...not this week or this month. I want to be able to view the week and or month when needed, but I really need the default view to be a one day calendar view. How can I do that?

    What do you guys do about no sound reminder for jorte?

    So do any of the calendar apps out there have a default single day view?

    I run the stock calendar app in parallel on my DX which remains synced to google calendar. It provides the updates and I use Jorte as the actual widget and interface.

    @G-Money - I've got the similar setup with Pure Calendar as my widget but it won't recognize tasks/to-dos made from Jorte. Are you showing your Jorte-built tasks on your Pure Calendar widget? If so, how did you configure in Jorte/Pure Calendar settings?

    Which calendar is "this" that you refer to?

    BTW, iRT calendar has a default day view.

    That is strange. On my DX, I get the today calendar view by default if I back out all the way when I exit the app. I like the week view better, so I have to remember to "home" out of the calendar so I get the weekly view when I go back into the calendar.

    What phone/os ver do you have?

    Mine now gives me this today view by default as well, which is exactly what I wanted. I'm pretty positive that it did not do that at first. I'm wondering if the OS kind of learns what you want by what you always go to. Anyway, I'm totally satisfied now. I also just downloaded Touch Calendar (free) and think it's a pretty cool calendar as well. It has pinch to zoom, which is nice.
