Android powered devices can make you productive if you use the right tools. Use these calendar apps to track daily events and tasks. These five suggested apps on the list are the best of the bunch according to all the ones I tried.
The Google calendar app comes built-in with the Android OS. The mobile functionality of this application is flawless due to Google and Android’s intrinsic link. If you update an appointment on this app, it will instantly reflect on your mobile device. Android users can also enjoy the built-in functionality of shared calendars where you can simultaneously create and view multiple calendars. You can download this application here.
Smooth Calendar is an attractive and clean application with added functionality. It displays multiple upcoming events and aautomatically synchronizes calendars with the built-in Google calendar. The key customizations offered with this application are the choice of display, number of events to be displayed and number of days the user would like to check an event for. Further, the ability to change the size and color of the widget is also offered. Tapping the calendar gives access to basic features of the application. You can download this application here.
Android Agenda Widget

An attractive user interface and a huge list of customization options are the first things that a user notices in this app. There are different options for different themes, widget styles and sizes, skins and text sizes. This app can be conveniently tailored according to the user’s requirements. The user can easily add an event by clicking the ‘+’ button and view the details of the event by simply clicking on it.

Jorte is another free calendar application for Android. It’s a fast and full feature calendar application that has the ability to segregate its own data within the application.
