Schedule Your Time with a Modern Looking Calendar
Time management matters, and that’s why many of us use calendars. Our memory simply can’t store all the necessary information in a short time span, so we jot down our schedules in calendars, stickies, and even napkins. Android devices can perfectly fit the role of a mobile calendar, but the standard Google calendar app lacks a few features that can be found in alternatives.
One of possible replacements to Google Calendar is ZDCal by XDA Senior Member ikaola. It’s an advanced schedule manager, which can be integrated with popular social networks like Facebook. With this calendar, you won’t forget about your friends’ birthdays, as they can be imported easily. This calendar could also be useful for women, as it supports menstrual tracking. The application has three separate tabs with default calendar, birthdays, and the aforementioned menstrual cycles. Of course, it supports widgets and is really good looking. Another interesting feature is navigation bar support, so that the week can be accessed even if your screen is locked. The application also shoes upcoming festivals in many countries such as USA, Germany, and China.
You can find more information about this calendar by visiting the application thread.

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...
