App Review: CalWidget
This is a Google Calendar display widget that provides users the option to choose from one or more multiple sized widgets that can be placed on the home screen. Â In addition to the large selection of sizes, the widget provides a few other options that allow you to:
- Increase or decrease opacity (my favorite option)
- Choose to hide or display event locations
- Access your Google calendar via the widget
- Change the way all day events display
Size selection ranges from 2×1 all the way through 4×4.Â CalWidget seems to have a one-widget-fits-all approach and I like it. Â Check it out today.
This App Was Tested Using: MT3G, rooted Cyanogenmod 4.2.5
This App Was Developed by: egg ‘n stone
Presentation: Very simplistic style that makes it nice. Â Nothing over-complicated, and the touch of opacity really helps it mesh well with any background you may have. Â Dev has mentioned future updates to include: colors, skins, and the ability to scroll through your agenda (hopefully exchange support at some point!)
Value: Free, can’t argue with that!
Stability/Resources: Straight-forward design, works as promised, no performance issues
Bottom Line: This widget is solid, simple, and effective. Â Not a lot of bells and whistles here, but it gets the job done while adding a little bit more individuality to your home screen. Â If the traditional Google Calendar widget doesn’t meet your needs try out CalWidget. Best in class on the market, IMO.
