Beta Review: Any.Do Cal – A simple, elegant calendar with great functionality
NOTE: This review is based on a beta version – things might change by the time it makes a public release
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to notice a Google+ post making the rounds which offered a place in the “Any.do super users community”. Naturally, I didn’t hesitate, and jumped at the opportunity. For those who are like me and instantly fell in love with Any.do, you’ll undoubtedly love Any.do Cal. It follows the same mantra: less is more. Just like Any.do, I was delighted to find a perfect balance was struck between design and functionality. The ability to select different themes as the background for your calendar is a nice touch, really helping to make it your own personal calendar. A fluid motion from day to day view topped off with a simple pull-down into a full month view makes it extremely easy to navigate.
In terms of functionality, I personally couldn’t fault it. The ability to select which calendars it synchronizes with was perfect, and it also gave me the option to ignore all those annoying Facebook birthdays – or add them, if I ever felt the need. The integration with Google maps for event locations, while the norm amongst calendars, just seemed so much better with its Any.do teams UI. Most importantly for me, however, was that it syncs with Any.do – although that was surely a given.
At the end of the day I honestly really enjoy this application. It just works, and works well at that. Coupled with a beautiful layout and design, what more could I ask for?
Unfortunately there’s no word yet on a full public release date, but we’ll keep you updated, should that situation change. If you’re interested in joining the group, hit up this link to check it out on Google+.

Lollipop users all share a common frustration, and that is the lack of a true silent mode for your device. Sadly, Google did away with the silent mode in favour
Last week I came across a great ROM for Motorola Droid 1 (a.k.a. “OG Droid”) tucked away in Droid Forums: Project Elite v4. Now, I usually flash the major ROM developers’ work (Cyanogen, Bugless Beast, Chevy and the others on ROM Manger) because of their history, and pass up the new guys because of fear of abundant force closes and buggy performance.
Well, I’m glad I took a chance on this one.
