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.

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

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!

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.

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.

I very much like this calendar and feel that it is better than many others I have used. I will use it as my primary calendar, HOWEVER, I like for apps to do what they say they will and when they say they sync, I expect them to sync everything. I realize this is a google issue partly, but still a bummer.

This app has a really nice feature that you can make multiple calendars for different members of the family, etc. Each can be color coded, I thought I was in heaven because finally I could just put all of my husbands events in under his calendar and bang, they were all in his color, I could pull a calendar with everyone or just him.... and so on. The issue is that when you make other calendars, they are LOCAL. This means they stay on the machine you create them on (for me this was my kindle) I could not sync them to google because they were local. This is sad because it is a brilliant feature but useless to me if I cannot sync it to other devices. There must be some way to make multiple calendars and still make them sync-able. I suppose this will not be possible until google has this capability also. So, back to color coding each event individually. Bleck.

I also really struggled to get this calendar to sync to google at all, I finally went in the kindle calendar comes preloaded and set it to my gmail account, then said "yes" to a question about letting amazon manage the cloud - just to see if I could use this calendar instead. Somehow, this allowed aCalendar to use the same instructions and then suddenly it sync'd and populated the info from my google acct. I wish there were instructions for this because I spent months trying to get it to work just for this random bit to finally correct it.

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.

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 ;)
