We’re back after a few week hiatus ready to share more of your app recommendations. This week we wanted to take a look at the apps you use to stay organized with work and family events. Here are your top 4 calendar app recommendations:
#4 – Cozi Calendar and Shopping Lists
Play Store Rating: 4.5
- Shared calendar
- Shared shopping lists
- Shared To Do lists
- Accessible on Android tablets and smartphone as well as syncing with cozi.com
My thoughts: Cozi is a good organizer that is complemented with a slick web app to sync data with the mobile version of Cozi. One thing I really like about the Cozi calendar is the ability to change the color for each user. This makes it easy to identify events related to a specific user or group without having to look any of the details of the calendar event. The ability to create shopping lists and journals also makes this a great app for anyone needing a simple way to organize their daily life.
#3 – Google Calendar
Developer: Google Inc.
Play Store Rating: 4.2
- Create, edit, and view events
- Google account calendar syncs with Android device
- Simultaneously view all calendars
- Quickly email all event guests from a notification with a custom message
My Thoughts: Google calendar is nice because it’s typically pre-installed with any new phone running Android 4.0.3 or higher. I don’t see many bells and whistles with the default calendar, but it is great at what it was designed for and the fact it made the top 4, it appears many of you would agree.
#2 – Samsung Default Calendar
Play Store Rating: N/A
- Syncs with Google calendar
- Enhanced User Interface
- Slide out menu to select calendar viewing options.
- Events for selected date show at bottom of the screen.
My Thoughts: Personally, I’m surprised Google didn’t implement some of the features found in the Samsung calendar. Small things such as displaying the events of the day on the bottom of the screen make a difference in quickly determining what is happening on any given day. The brown accents used definitely add to the aesthetics of the app and give you a cleaner looking interface. This is a great calendar app for those of you with Samsung devices. I would suggest taking a look at it if you haven’t already some so.
#1 – Business Calendar
Developer: Appgenix Software Free
Play Store Rating: 4.5/4.6
- Zoomable Multiday view
- Color coded year view
- Copy and paste events
- Create templates for events
My Thoughts: It’s not a surprise to see Business Calendar at the top of your list of calendar apps. Unique features such as the ability to zoom in on the event for a given day set this app apart from it’s competition. One other feature I appreciated was the ability to copy and paste and event. If none of the other calendar apps suits your taste, make sure to check out Business Calendar, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
