  • Adulting! May 6, 2018

    By Mrs. NayNay
    My life was becoming extremely crazy and I kept "double booking" myself like Every. Single. Day. So I kept having to call and let people down because I had forgotten about previous commitments! Well! My mom and sister got frustrated with me and told me that I needed to just get Google Calendar and every time I commit to something I have to put it in the calendar right then and there and then before I commit to things I have to pull out my calendar and check it! It was simple advice but Google Calendar was so easy to use and so aesthetically that after I used it once I got hooked! Haha I love putting hints in my calendar now and color coordinating them! It looks so pretty and I feel like an adult that has to "check her calendar" all the time🙄😂. Also! I found out you can link calendars with people! Now I know when my sister is free to talk on the phone because her crazy work schedule is on there and we love so far away it's helped us stay connected!! All that to say! I love Google Calendar and it will help you organize your life!

  • 2 small problems, 2 less stars Dec 23, 2018

    By Angrymonkeymermaid
    The app is great but there are 2 things I wish they did. 1: more colors added for events. I wish they had more colors to choose from when writing in an event. I am the kind of person that likes to keep certain events in the same color so i know that that event is work, party, meeting, holiday, birthdays, vet appointments, etc. But the color selection is a bit limited for me and there are colors that i never use because it makes no sense when i associate that color for that event, like the color flamingo. I wish they had different kinds of blues, purples, greens, reds, oranges, and pink. Especially since the purple for reminder you cannot change, so placing an event in that color confuses me. 2: I wish the photo used for a location was based on a photo of what the location looks like and not from photos that people upload from their cellphone to google maps. The fault is google maps. The photo location for an area should be something you should have the option of selecting in calendar and the logo should be an option. Their should also be an option on google maps where someone can select the primary photo of that location when flagging a picture. For example, my dog vet is pet smart Banfield but the picture shown on my calendar is a lady with her dog. That is not the location of the vet, it should be a picture of the front of the store, even though there is a picture of that, i cant select it.

    I like the goals functionality, but it is lacking a few key features. Most notably, I'd like to be able to create a new instance of an existing goal, not just move around the automatically created ones. Maybe I overachieved this week, or Google couldn't find space to create the event so I moved things around.

    I love using Google Calendar. It is easy to keep things organized and it is very appealing to the eye to visually see items in the calendar. The only thing i wish for is to have more color choices to differentiate the different items that i need to separate visually by color. I am using almost every color for something between 4 different calendars. With my son going to school virtually it would be helpful to have an unlimited array of colors to work with for color coding things.

  • I like it, but it needs improvement Sep 23, 2018

    By Colton2077
    This app is one of the most comprehensive as far as what I can do, but it needs fixing in a few areas. First of all, Goals are super glitchy and need improvement. I find that it’s super inconvenient that there is no option to select Goal time/date manually, you have to let the app decide for you. You can change manually it AFTER it is auto assigned, but you have to do them each individually. So if I have a 5 day workout goal and I want them all to be at specific times, I have to manually fix every single day and time to where I want it. It’s super inconvenient. It should simply be an option and nothing more to have the app select times and dates for your goals. Additionally, I find that sometimes they delete themselves, and also, if you set a goal it only lasts about three weeks before you have to recreate them again. You should be able to have the option to select the cut off date or have them running indefinitely, like you can with “Events.” It’s almost better to set your Goals as Events because Events actually works. Additionally, I find that when I swipe other to the next week it will sometimes ship months or years ahead for seemingly no reason.

  • Recent updates have seriously ruined this app May 24, 2018

    By pianoman.82
    After a few months of very laggy, unresponsive, disappointing app behavior, I finally have had enough to leave a review in the hopes that it will help someone on the app team realize just how bad things have gotten, at least for me (my wife has the same issues on her iOS devices as well, so it’s not something unique to my account). I was surprised to see how many other reviews I have found with almost exactly the same issues that I have. The fact that the other reviewers have been reporting consistently issues since at least the beginning of 2018 with no improvement is nearly inexcusable. My primary issues in a nutshell - 1) often app opens to random dates at initial launch; 2) after initial app load, it generally takes 60-90 seconds (sometimes much longer) before the UI is responsive; 3) once everything has finally loaded (if I have not given up and force quit it already) there is way too much UI lag and sputtering as I try to navigate through different UI views — full month, daily agenda, etc. These issues combined render the app nearly useless for me in most everyday use cases. As an app developer myself, I can appreciate the complexity of creating a performant, well-functioning app. However, given how awesome this app used to be, and the level of satisfaction I expect from an app by Google, I’m just so frustrated and disappointed. I can’t understand why these issues have not received attention yet.

  • Absolutely a disaster May 23, 2018

    By Ibrad14
    What changed? I don’t experience crashing however the app is useless. It has all of these bells and whistlesbut it’s impossible to easily put an event on the calendar. When I’m in month review, I should be able to touch the day that I want to add an event to and have it open up that day and then let me pick the time of the event. But instead it tries to be too smart and it opens up instead a daily view but not even the day that I touched. And then when I have to make an event I have to click another ‭+ sign‬ and then choose the events option— way too many clicks compared to other cal apps!!! and then on the next Screen I have to fill out all of these fields but none of them are easy to differentiate from the other and they have too many auto populated fields that are similar… For example the word “at”.... I use “at”for the time but nope the “at” Refers to location. It’s awesome that you can link it to the maps and your contacts and all that however it’s useless with putting an actual event into your calendar. I am finding myself, when I’m scheduling something on the fly, giving myself reminders thru siri for when I get home to put it into the calendar. Because I can’t do it on my phone! I guess I will go back to the CalenGoo app!

    I agree with what the others are saying. I've used Google calendar for years, and loved it. My new phone is leaving the icon showing the number 31. I've tried updates, swiping, and other trucks, but they don't work. I have also searched for other calendars and an unable to find a calendar where the icon this the simple number on the app. It's pathetic- I thought technology was supposed to move us forward!

    1 star as this version doesn't show non-repeating events over a year old. But it used to show events older than 1 year, so why on earth change it so it doesn't show older events? My previous phone, bought in June 2019, running Android 9, still shows such events going back to 2017, so saying it's "as designed" doesn't make sense and also is of no use whatsoever to me.

  1. Syncs so smoothly with Gmail that any events mentioned in an email are magically added to your calendar
  2. Need help figuring out how meet those goals? Add a personal goal - like “run 3 times a week” - and it will be scheduled for you automatically
  3. Don’t forget anything ever again! Reminders let you plan when and what time you need to remember those important to-dos

  • Helps me organize my life!! Jul 15, 2019

    By MoMo527527
    As a high school student that plays sports, has a job, babysits, and is involved in many *many* clubs, this app helps me organize my life!! I love the automatic pictures that come up and how i can share calendars with people (my team etc), and THE COLORS. i legit have corresponding colors for everything and i absolutely love it!! my one tiny thing is how all events have to last for a period of time. i would love an option to have events just occur at a certain time and have no end time. for example when i need to pick up my little sister that occurs at a certain time and isnt a duration of time, also some meetings for clubs and such dont have an end time so just putting in a random time doesnt really help me. adding this feature would really help me make this a 5 star review because after that i dont know what this app could be missing! but other than that i absolutely love this app and i dont plan to stop using it anytime in the future!!

  • Convenient but could be improved Jan 4, 2018

    By lalaniam
    I love the colors to be able to tell the difference. I also love the ability to share events with people. I do wish that I could add the same event to multiple days. For example, work, for people who don’t work the same days every week. If I work and 7am-7pm multiple days a week; that I could just type in the information and just click on the different days that I work. Another example would be for volunteering events; I have to keep typing them in, because they don’t repeat on the same days of the week each week. It’s a huge downside. I keep hoping there will be an update with it. But I may start looking for another app. Additionally, it would be nice to have more neon colors for color coordination. As me and my husband share calendars and have events for the kids. It would really help separate each of those things. I often run out of colors.

  • Best Free Calendar App You Can Get Mar 25, 2019

    By shelbhoc
    I’ve tried all kinds of available calendar apps, but this one is by far my favorite! I often tell my friends to drop their apps and opt for Google Calendar because I really think it is so much better than any other free-cal app out there. I am easily able to look at my daily, weekly and monthly schedule- and I LOVE that the monthly outlook actually tells me what I have going on each day. I can also color-code events/calendars so I can see what realms I have working each day, AND it syncs up online so that I can use it on my computer too. I also have calendars made for my team so that I can put events in all of our schedules at one time. And I can set GOALS and make REMINDERS and CHECK THEM OFF AS I GO??? Amazing. I probably sound like a fake review right now, but I swear I am a human (who never even writes reviews) and I just really really love this app. Do yourself a favor and get this.

  • Everything one might need in a calendar app Sep 18, 2017

    By Tom D. Kim
    I love how Google Calendar automagically uploads everything to the cloud. I also love how it suggests locations based on the address one types in (of course it doesn't do this for private addresses, but it is still a handy feature.) It will set reminders by month, day, hour, or minute, and it also asks if one wants to set up recurring appointments for a number of weeks, a number of days, or annually (handy for Birthday reminders.) The app will also convert between time zones across the world—another useful feature. And all of these can easily be set whether one is using a smartphone or a tablet, and also a desktop or a laptop. All of the changes are sent to the cloud, as well. It is possible to export it into many other formats as well, such as iCal, and Microsoft Office. I ❤️ Google Calendar and will continue to use it until they pry it out of my hands. 🙂

  • Add More Colors/ Set Up A New Calendar Jan 6, 2020

    By Lupe0604
    I love using Google Calendar to keep track of everything as it is an app that serves me so well. Its an app that for the past 3-4 years has been steadily reliable and never once failed me. However, time after time again I find myself wishing for more colors to be able to use to differentiate the types of events that go on in my busy lifestyle. More colors would allow for so much more organization to exist within the app. The colors that currently exist within the app are nice, but a fully and well developed calendar app should offer more variation. Please, this is the only issue I have with using Google Calendar, and this reason alone is why I would not give it the full 5 stars it would otherwise get. All I ask is for more colors. Please. Edit: Another thing that is irritating is how on the app we can not add a new calendar and have to use a browser. The whole point of the app is to use all the features on the app and not have to grab my laptop every time I want to add a new calendar. I still love this app but I just wish they would add the feature to the app as it would help sooooo much.

    Reminders feature could use improvement like have options to remind again after X minutes and be easier to dismiss the reminder instead of automatically getting added to the next day's reminders that don't pop up at all. Calendar events work great and I appreciate being able to set notifications at multiple times for them.

    It is a great app... I would of course like to have a few things added.: 1. Delete all the events of a particular day or week at one go. 2. Days left for a certain event/ meeting. 3. Improvement on the interface with Google assistant. Would like you to make it work just as easy as talking to my secretary. 4. Categorize events/ activities. Eg. I would like to know all the meetings lined up for the day (meetings only)

  • Excellent Calendar, even better with a few tweaks Dec 12, 2018

    By E.G.G S.
    My school uses Google Suite for student email, handout distribution and storage, and turning in assignments, to name a few uses. I use Google Calendar to coordinate all of these things and record my homework. I have a color-coded calendar for each class so I can glance at my week and see my work load easily. Unfortunately, I have to set up each assignment as an event because reminders can’t attach to calendars or change their color. This makes it difficult to see a list of all my homework together, whereas with reminders, I could mark them as done and display them together. I also encountered an issue where trying to share an event with someone while creating it would cause the event to not be created, but sharing the event after creating it would be successful. Still, these are minor problems and improvements and overall, this is one of the best calendar apps I’ve seen.

  • No Apple Watch/Subscribed Calendars Jul 17, 2020

    By JT@Itunes
    Overall, it looks good but it’s missing the most important thing to be usable for me. I must have it in my Apple Watch and have a complication so I see the next event just by raising my wrist. Google, add this and you’ll win me over from Apple’s calendar. The other issue is with subscribed calendars. Google’s platform is far superior to Apple because I can subscribe to an external calendar on the site and see it on my phone as well. Perfect, almost. I set up a subscription to my work calendar. We are fully hosted on Microsoft 365. I’m able to see everything that was created PRIOR to setting up the subscription however, nothing new is coming in. After an exhaustive search, this is a Google problem that has existed for a long time. Google, you need to give us an option for subscribed calendars to specify update frequency. A global setting is simply not sufficient. I have another subscribed calendar which only needs an update once per week but my work calendar needs updates every 15 minutes. I do know I can add my M366 calendar in the default Apple calendar and it works as expected. That’s not what I want. I want all of my calendars in one place.

    The new update ruined it for me. Earlier I could just tap on a date in the monthly view, I could see my details on a pop-up view. Tap on any entry and I could edit easily. Now tap on the date, a whole new daily view screen turns up. Tap on the date and then tap on edit. Earlier I could easily set alarms for on the day at 9 am, now I have to manually set it. Why mess this perfectly good app, why? UX should make things simpler for users, you just did the opposite!!

    (BUG) When I update a calendar item, the calendar widget does not get updated until the next refresh, i.e the app does not "write through" the widget as it should. (MISSING FUNCTIONALITY) When I get a birthday/anniversary notification, it would be helpful to be able to open up the contact information from the reminder screen. Currently I need to open contacts, search for the right contact, and then send my greetings. Time consuming and error prone. Please add a "Last working day of the month".

  • Pretty, Useless May 23, 2018

    By ☆Anna☆Belle★
    I admit, this app is pretty and well designed. However, there’s a lot of problems with it. First, lets say you have guitar lessons on Mondays and Fridays. Good for you, but you can’t put that in your schedule. You can only put “two times a week”, which means it’ll put it on Mondays and Wednesdays. Ok and then lets say you want to practice your guitar every day for 30 mins. It will find the best time that you can practice it, hooray!!! And the time you can practice is... 1AM-1:30AM!!! Of course you can edit this time but... why would you be practicing... at 1:30... and last of all, you can’t edit holidays. So I’m Christian, and Easter changes every year so it’s nice that they have the option for religious holidays(they have Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Orthodox holidays!! I love the inclusion!!) so that I don’t have to update it every year, but what is the Assumption of Mary? And all these other random holidays I’ve never heard of? What? You can’t delete them or change their color. Fantastic. So in all, a super aesthetically pleasing app, but in all super useless.

  • Not good for the avid traveler Dec 9, 2017

    By Cdub.25
    Google calendar is nice because it puts events from your email directly into your calendar, especially for flights. It’s easy to use, but if you travel there is a major flaw that will frustrate the living hell outta you. When you put things in your calendar, it automatically resets them to the time zone you’re in. I live abroad in NZ for school and have events planned for when I come home for Christmas, however in my calendar my 7 pm on Tuesday even shows up as a 2 pm on Wednesday. Even distinctly telling the phone, it’s in a different time zone. It doesn’t let you keep it at the time it’s supposed to be. There is no way to set it so that I can put my events in and it will keep there the time I want regardless of time. I’m trying to plan things for when I go home and my calendar is all messed up, it makes things in a different time zone impossible to plan

  • PLEASE FIX IT GOOGLE: So disappointed on how buggy it is Jan 23, 2018

    By guess15me
    I wanted to love this app so much because I love my Google Calendar on my computer. And initially I did love this app because it functioned fine and brought a lot of color and visuals to my calendar which I really liked for organization. However as of the last couple of weeks at least this app has been nothing but a headache. It just freezes up whenever I open it. Then it’s completely lagged out. I can hardly ever get to be able to create an event before it just shuts itself down and app disappeared. Every little thing will be logged out. Opening the app and loading it, creating an event, typing each individual letter (which could take 10 seconds before a letter while actually appear), list goes on and on. Now I highly doubt that there is an issue with my phone because I have only a fraction of my memory used and I keep my phone software pretty squeaky clean. I don’t even have a lot of videos or photos, and I don’t even stream very much. Everything else on my phone functions fine except when it comes to trying to operate this app. Until google fixes this issue, This app is really intolerable and unusable.
