PERMISSIONS
On top of the basic calendar and contact permissions also necessary for the free version, aCalendar+ also asks for Internet. Internet will be used in the future for Google Tasks and potentially other services. aCalendar+ respects your privacy and will NEVER send any of your private data anywhere unless configured by YOU. 'Send Email to guests' is bound to 'write calendar data' by Google.

TRANSLATIONS
aCalendar+ is translated into over 25 languages - please let me know if there is a bad translation somewhere.

LOVE
If you like aCalendar+, you can show your support by rating 5-stars and recommending it to your friends

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight forward, Easy to Use November 28, 2012
By Aunt JB
Verified Purchase
I tried out the beta/free version of this calendar on my Samsung Galaxy SIII phone. This app gave me what I wanted, an easy to use calendar with a few extra bells and whistles and no learning curve. I have now installed the paid version on my Kindle Fire HD 7" and it is running fine. The two sync via my Google calendar. I'd like to have more colors to assign to tasks and events and it looks like that is in the R&D stage and may follow soon. My favorite feature is the Birthdays list. By entering their birth year I can see how old my family and friends are each birthday or if it's my Mom and Dad's 59th Wedding Anniversary or 60th. Ya got to keep track of these important milestones! Over all, I'm very happy with this calendar app. Thank you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Calendar App July 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
There are two features that I really like about this calendar. One, it is very easy to copy events to another date which is something I do quite a bit. Two, I really like the way that you navigate from day view, week view, and month view. You just swipe horizontally to rotate between day, week, and month view. To change the month, you swipe vertically. The detail view is very nice and if you have more than one event for that day, swiping rotates between the events of that day. It's also very easy to go to a specific date, even if that date is a few years backwards or forwards. It also has agenda view. The search feature is very easy to use also.

Here is what I would like to see improved; better color customization. For young eyes it's probably okay but my aging eyes like high contrast. You only have 8 basic themes to choose from. Four are white background, four are black background. With any of the black background themes, there is not a good color option for the text so that it shows up well. The white background is okay but there aren't many high contrast dark colors for the text. Another thing I don't like about the colors is that you can only select one so all of your events are the same color. If you want different colors for business and personal events, the only way is to create two different calendars and I don't like doing that. I like my events on one calendar. I would also like to be able to change font size and style.

Overall, In terms of navigating through the calendar, and the organization of it, it's 5 stars. The color issues however, bring it down to 4 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware. October 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
All the nicely advertised features of this app went down the drain after I paid for and downloaded this app. Prior to installation, I read a notice that emails could be sent to contacts without the owner's knowledge. That raised a red flag. I will not install anything of that nature. At least the developers were kind enough to alert me prior to installation, but that should be on the permissions list prior to purchase.

This is my current personal favorite calendar application, but it does still fall short in a few areas. For example, only one google account can be synchronized with the application. So, I cannot sync both my account and my wife's account to the calendar. Moreover it only works with google. So, if you use any other service such as naver you will have to look elsewhere for now. Fix these issuse and it will be a five star application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best interface in a calendar app June 29, 2014
By SBK
Verified Purchase
I am not at all a fan of the stock calender app on my Samsung Galaxy S3. I don't like the month view in Google's calendar app.
Sunrise calendar is beautifully designed, but I still didn't like their week views. IMHO aCalendar+ beats all these apps, hands down.

[x] aCalendar+ is beautifully designed; it has a good month, week and day view.
[x] Intuitive view switching: in the month view, you can simply swipe on a week to go to that week's view. From there just swipe on a day to go to that day's view.
[x] I am especially a big fan of their week view, which shows the whole month dates in one of the boxes. I can also choose to make both the weekend days red, choose the day on which the week starts.
[x] I also like their calendar widget which has a lot of customization options and can be made semi-transparent (which looks cool).

I got it for free during the Amazon's "$100 apps for free" giveaway, and at that "price" it's a tough app to beat ;)

I may raise some eyebrows at challenging aCalendar+ to Business Calendar Pro, but go ahead and purchase both and see for yourself.

Both of these apps are among the top 3 I will use but I prefer aCal Pro over all because of the power and simplicity of the whole app. It simply works without becoming intrusive on a device.

One of the things a do like is that on the smaller handheld devices you can see text on the month view, rather than only colored bars. This is something simple but often not an option on calendar apps.

It works well with multiple accounts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be much better August 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
I do not like the interface at all, I bought the app and I'm glad I did when it was part of an Amazon Appstore free period. In all honesty the default Calendar App that came with my Note 3 is much more aesthetically pleasing, especially in Week view which is what I generally use. Hire a UX Guy, I can recommend some if you need.
