    So far I only see the 2x2 Calendar widget. Is this really it? I miss the sizeable one that lists upcoming appointments. A 2x2 widget that tells me only what day it is is totally useless except for the rare occasional morning I know what day it is.

    I think its only Verizon that kills the large calendar widgets. Very annoying since it shows tasks as well now.

    Had a full page widget until I switched to Nova. Downloaded Google Calender.

    I have Verizon and I'm pretty sure the 4X4 calendar widget is there.

    I'm missing the stock internet browser though

    Calengoo is awesome. It has 9 widgets and they show tasks (syncs with Google tasks) on them. They are scrollable and have customizable transparency.

    If you like customizing your calendar and widgets to exactly how you want them, you will be in customization heaven. Fonts, colors, sizes, transparency, time & date display format, etc... You can set multiple reminders for events. You can back up your settings too so you can restore them later if needed.

    The best part is that the month view shows readable text for both tasks and events. Most calendar apps just show useless bars. The month view is zoomable and scrollable.

    There's a reason it's rated so high in the Play store. Well worth the money. And the developer is very responsive and adds features regularly.

    And the widgets work well w/Nova Launcher. Resize them as big as you want.

    Thanks, this looks almost perfect.

    4 questions:

    1) Does it show tasks in the agenda widget, or in a standalone widget?
    2) Does it show the task in the app in the month/day view?
    3) How does it show untimed tasks?
    4) Will it show tasks from any other source, or just google?

    TIA for all the help.

    4 questions:
    1) Does it show tasks in the agenda widget, or in a standalone widget?
    - yes, shows in agenda widget and has own standalone task widget. Both are scrollable/resizable (awesome).

    2) Does it show the task in the app in the month/day view?
    - yes, you can show or hide tasks in both. It's up to you.

    3) How does it show untimed tasks?
    - all tasks are shown together at either the top of the day or bottom - your choice.

    4) Will it show tasks from any other source, or just Google?
    - I don't think so. I'll check. But might be a good question for the developer. Maybe there is a plug-in for other task apps.



    I've been using Calengoo for 4+ years and also heavily use the tasks feature. Can't live without it.

    The Tasks settings menu scrolls for 6 screen worth of options.

    If you have any other questions, please ask. I know it's tough to spend $5+ on an app. So if you need more info, glad to help.

    For what it's worth, my wife is a calendar nerd. She tried them all and found this one to be the best that meets all her needs.

    Sorry, I meant where does it show undated tasks? Also, where does it show overdue tasks? Are they on the date due, or today?

    I already sent him an email. For me, this is the most important feature. If it supports exchange clients (as the current built in app does - but no widgets) its an insta-buy for me.

    I know it's tough to spend $5+ on an app.
    Not at all. If it will show my task, I would gladly pay twice that or more.

    Thanks again for all the help.

    Sorry, I meant where does it show undated tasks?
    It's your choice. There is an option for each view (day, agenda, week, month) to either display undated tasks or not. So your day and agenda views can show them and your week and month can hide if you choose. There is also a dedicated Tasks view that shows all tasks, separated into lists.

    Also, where does it show overdue tasks? Are they on the date due, or today?
    It's your choice. You can show them on the day they were due or have them rollover to be shown on today.

    Good to know.
    Hope it can. Reply back with his response. He's in Germany so might be tomorrow.


    Some other settings for tasks :
    - hide or show completed tasks
    - tasks can be recurring
    - can easily convert calendar events into tasks
    - tasks can have a priority (1 to 5)
    - tasks can have (or not have) due dates
    - tasks can have zero or many reminders
    - tasks (and events) can be snozed for set time periods (ie 5 min, 15 min, 1 hour, 1 day - add your own time periods of needed)

    Thanks again for all the help.
    Your welcome!

    Any other questions, just ask.

    Awesome!

    Once you get it configured the way you want, backup your settings to a file (email it to yourself or save it somewhere).

    SO, I purchased it to try it out. It looks like it doesn't support exchange calendars, but I think I am going to keep it anyhow and try putting my todos in google calendars and see how that works for me. Its not perfect, but its better than what I have now.

    I've got it all set up except I can't figure out how to do one thing. This was about overdue tasks:

    It's your choice. You can show them on the day they were due or have them rollover to be shown on today.
    I can't find a way to do this in the app or on the widget. Ideally, I would like it on both.

    Thanks for all the help. Its a really nice app.


    EDIT: Never mind, I found it. Now, if I can get the developer to add outlook support, it will be perfect.

    It does support exchange calendars. It syncs with all calendars that your phone has accounts set up for.

    Check the Visibility/Download settings. I use it for work (MS exchange) and personal Gmail calendars (I show my wife's calendar, my kids, a couple organizations).

    Not sure I understand. Did you enable Tasks in the settings (I think it's disabled by default). Then choose where/how you want to see overdue tasks?

    It's in the Tasks settings called "Show overdue tasks on today".
