Event Flow Calendar Widget is a Really Good Looking Calendar Widget

The new year is coming, so it’s time to get rid of those pesky wall calendars and find something smaller, more functional, and free. Android devices have essentially become powerful computers, so they are used for a variety of tasks such as music playback, scheduling, telling time, and whatever else you could ask for. That said, stock Android lacks very many good looking widgets, especially for such an important thing as a calendar.

XDA Forum Member Syncd made a good looking calendar widget that integrates with Google Calendar and shows upcoming events in a nice, transparent, and “Holo” way. This app offers two ways of viewing the calendar: You can view the full month in the form of a grid. Days with events are marked, so it’s really easy to spot when something important is coming. The second way is agenda view, which shows events for the next few days. It also includes the weather forecast for these days, so you will know when to take your jacket and umbrella. The widgets can be shown in four different ways (calendar view) or two (agenda view), and Event Flow Calendar Widget supports themes.

I like this widget, as good free calendar widgets are quite rare. If you are looking for some neat widgets, make your way to the application thread and give it a try.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...

Do ISPs Abuse Their Power?

Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
