Google Calendar is Google's official scheduling app for Android phones.

If you own an Android, chances are you've run into many Google products, including Google Calendar. Google seems to be able to seamlessly transition between web apps and phone apps without a hitch, and this app is no exception. Users can easily enter, delete, and alter calendar entries. There are lots of advanced options, including the ability to have multiple calendars, color code, set alerts, and more. It's similar to having a fully featured calendar right in front of you that beeps when you have an event coming up.

Google Calendar now also supports voice event addition. This means you can literally schedule events by talking. It's perfect for personal users who need to organize their lives and for businesses. It has both local and cloud storage capabilities, so regardless of whether you have an internet connection, you'll be able to use it. Like most Google products, there's no cost to use it for an unlimited amount of time. The one downside is that you will need to sign up for a Google account. Unlike some calendar apps, there's no option to have a solely offline calendar. Much of the idea behind Google Calendar is that it is an all-in-one solution, including cloud synchronization.

Overall, this is a very solid product. It's been around for a long time, and it has every feature a calendar user could ever want. There's truly nothing that comes close.

Pros:

  • Versatile among all platforms
  • Automatic cloud synchronization of events
  • Highly customizable and easy to organize

Cons:

  • Requires Google account
  • Cannot be setup and run completely offline (but events may be added offline)

Connect to Google Fit so Calendar can mark fitness goals done automatically and schedule future times better. Check your progress with the new visual tracker.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • CALL_PHONE: Allows an application to initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call.
  • READ_CALENDAR: Allows an application to read the user's calendar data.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • WRITE_CALENDAR: Allows an application to write the user's calendar data.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings.
  • READ_SYNC_STATS: Allows applications to read the sync stats.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • WRITE_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to write the sync settings.
  • android.permission.SUBSCRIBED_FEEDS_READ
  • android.permission.SUBSCRIBED_FEEDS_WRITE
  • android.permission.USE_CREDENTIALS
  • com.google.android.c2dm.permission.RECEIVE
  • com.google.android.calendar.permission.C2D_MESSAGE
  • com.google.android.gm.exchange.BIND
  • com.google.android.gm.permission.READ_GMAIL
  • com.google.android.googleapps.permission.GOOGLE_AUTH
  • com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES
