Widget please
by cheflampshade on 2020/09/23 03:28
I prefer this calendar to apple’s even though I synced it but I like having the calendar widget
Decent but outdated
by FilmMakerTV on 2020/09/23 02:33
For a simple calendar app, it gets the job done but notifications literally won't work for you some of the time and I don't think you wanna take that risk of this app's notifications working some days especially if there's something very important. It also does not even have a watch app and doesn’t even have a widget you can put on your home screen since iOS 14 has existed which is tragic. It just proves that Google calendar is only created to do the absolute bare minimum when it comes to a calendar app and just refuses to improve no matter how many people demand it to.
Love this app- but fix this one thing
by 2% mayhem on 2020/09/23 00:06
Love google calendars! Looks awesome, easy to sync but could you please have it show the date on the app tile on the phone ... the one thing that the Apple calendar does that makes it so easy.... pllleeeeeaaassseee
Apple Widget
by flyinghighguy on 2020/09/22 20:15
Great app but suggestion... please come out with a google calendar widget for iOS 14 that shows the current date so I can get rid of the Apple calendar icon! Thanks!
by s0undnutriti0n on 2020/09/22 14:59
Can the icon reflect today’s date the way the regular iOS does? That would be a MAJOR fix.
add pictures
by 2k2ers on 2020/09/22 08:24
I use GG Calendar to write diaries and many things, easy to use but I really want to add pictures , links to my diaries
Displays 31 instead of today’s date on iOS home screen
by SeattleJoe7 on 2020/09/22 06:18
I’d give this app 5 stars if only they could indicate the current date on the Google Calendar icon. (While I realize this is Apple’s fault for not even allowing the current date to show, at least Google could show something that would not be confused with the actual date. Please “lose” the “31”.) I really wish I didn’t have to also have Apple’s calendar on my home screen, just so that I can see the correct date.
Love this app!
by miss.stacie.lynn on 2020/09/22 01:14
Will gladly rate 5 stars when a widget will be available 😊
by tutzers on 2020/09/21 21:20
Please make a widget!!
No widget, Location or Apple watch support
by CharlesMcMahon on 2020/09/21 16:52
I'm a Google fan but this last update, along with missing features that other calendar apps have are making this pointless to keep. Also app keeps forcing closed when I try to skip a goal.
One word: widgets!
by Nindroid Kai on 2020/09/20 19:04
I love this app, and I use it over any other calendar app. I hope you guys could create a widget to go along with this app because after this IOS 14 update I it would perfect my home screens 😁
widget for iOS 14 please!!!
by ns010101 on 2020/09/20 03:58

Can’t copy or duplicate events from my Microsoft exchange account
by DaveeeeeeB on 2020/09/20 03:46
I can copy events & duplicate events from my google calendar...but only delete shows as an option for my events from exchange calendar. On android I can duplicate or copy both ways. On :(
Only missing one thing
by Atypical87 on 2020/09/19 23:53
This app would be perfect if the day shown on the icon matched the actual date. Just a detail that occasionally makes me miss the default calendar
Why can’t I add a calendar within the app?
by Tmd2030 on 2020/09/19 15:14
So frustrating not to be able to add/subscribe to a calendar within the app. I never take the time to write app reviews, but after spending an hour trying to subscribe unsuccessfully I decided to vent. Come on Google, this is ridiculous.
Need a widget!!!!!!!
by DrPepperIsMyDoctor on 2020/09/19 14:20

Love Google Calendar BUT.....
by scotthilt on 2020/09/18 20:46
I love Google Calendar, but now that iOS 14 is out I want is a large Google Calendar widget. Currently I’m using the Apple Calendar widget sync’d to my Google account and I hate it!! Need that an official Google Calendar widget ASAP!!
Why does the icon say “31” and not current date?
by Doctor rabbit on 2020/09/18 17:30
Why does the icon say “31” and not current date? Now with widgets there is no excuse. Google cal is awesome but im not using it until the icon shows the current date. Also add a badge notification sign for calendar reminders for gods sake. People have been asking for it for years.
Colors don't work
by rajohns on 2020/09/18 15:08
Everything else about Google Calendar is great but I find it exceptionally annoying that the colors I chose for my various calendars do not get used. Everything shows up as shades of green and blue even though I have selected lots of other colors for my calendars. It works correctly on the browser but not in the app. Fix this and it's 5 stars all the way.
App is fine, but forced sign-in across all google apps is a no go
by Jcravioto on 2020/09/18 13:53
I’ve always used google maps without my account signed-in, and i really hate that recently all my google apps would force me to be signed in across all apps if i have my google calendar. This is a no go for me, and would really think you should reconsider this based on privacy issues. There are plenty of calendar apps around, that i’m willing to use instead as this is something i’m not comfortable with.
by NO NAME AT ALL THOUGH!... on 2020/09/18 13:10

Needs watch app
by Howie H.M. on 2020/09/17 20:38
Useless without a watch app that feeds into the Siri face.
Please get a widget for iOS 14
by LuigiDaBoss123 on 2020/09/17 07:08
Like the title says. I love Google calendar but I won’t be using the app until it gets a widget
Cool app.
by nickkellie1 on 2020/09/17 06:14
I like it. Just one suggestion. Please make widgets for ios14 - thank you!
by peer yu on 2020/09/17 03:39
Why is the date on the Apple phone not accurate as it is on the android phones?
Two Improvements Would Be Great
by keating3000 on 2020/09/16 08:09
I just started using this calendar vs the native IPhone calendar, and I really like it. Easy to use, intuitive, etc. I have two qualms, however. 1. Please put the date on the thumbnail / tile like Apple does. It just makes so much sense! 2. Make it easier to add categories from the app. I hate that I have to go into a browser to add categories. Thanks!
Google Calendar App
by earthychick3 on 2020/09/15 20:53
Is it so hard to put in an update so it displays the right date for us? You claim u want to make our lives easy, but my iphones calendar seem to make my life easy when viewing the date. This has been going on for years. One post was 6 years old and there were so many complaints, they stopped people from chiming in. I read that the glitch is from google. Everyone displays the 31st???? I recommended the calendar to friends but now I look like the DA since they deleted their old one and now can’t view the date in the new one. If my default calendar can figure it out I’m sure the geniuses at Google can commit an hour or so to fix this glitch! Do people that work for google use this calendar??? Doesn’t it irk you too... Someone speak up.
Visually easy!
by AmyBandlien on 2020/09/15 15:40
I love using Google Calendar! It’s so much easier that I can see everything at a glance in the schedule mode. And I can also see all the different things listed for each day and month mode. I love the color coding and the multiple calendar option. Just really wish it had an Apple Watch feature! Please add that!
Birthday notifications (before birthday date)

Events from past years doesn’t show on app.
by MikeHess86 on 2020/09/14 15:09
I use Google Calendar on my iPhone because I like the look and performance much better than the Apple Calendar. Although one issue that I do not like is old events prior to 2018 do not appear on my phone. Thankfully everything still shows on the website looking via computer. I want to see all my events from the past for needed referral.
App name still doesn’t fit under icon
by bguffy on 2020/09/14 01:54
App name is still too long for the Home Screen, and it has to use ellipses. It looks so bad I’ve had to banish this app to page 3 of my home screen. Also, the month view still has a very dated, unappealing look to it (still like the desktop version). Overall, this app could really use help from an aesthetics professional. As a calendar, it generally works, but you can’t view events without first going into the daily schedule view. It would be great if a single tap could open an event.
Search function doesn’t work
by Kkcb32 on 2020/09/13 15:54
When using the app, search terms don’t find calendar entries that I know are there. And if I do the same search term in Google Calendar on my computer via a browser the calendar entries/events come up. This needs fixed please! It makes the app inoperable and frustrating to use!
by goocal2020rev on 2020/09/13 12:26
I have used this app for years and years, then all the sudden a few months ago I could only have one standard color. I used to be able to type in whatever event, choose the color to match whatever folder I had and that was that. Easy peasy to look at my calendar quick and if I see a certain color then I know what’s going on. It’s really made my organization skills lack and it’s much harder to read being that I have tball, gymnastics, my personal business and doctors appts all plugged in. But now that everything is one color it’s really a pain
Great App, one small complaint.
by cadn0622 on 2020/09/12 21:22
I love Google Calendar and use it instead of Apple calendar for my events and such. It’s very intuitive and easy to use. My only complaint is the lack of Apple Watch app, which would be useful.
by Carol98cc on 2020/09/11 17:11
I love it so much but might I suggest you add the same feature that the google calendar has on desktop. As in the way past events fade a little. That helps a lot when looking at it.

by // Lola // on 2020/09/11 12:26
I love that I’m able to color code my entries- it really keeps every They keep me organized. I especially love the goal setting feature- it fills my calendar and reminds me to give myself a little me time.
by Cobeat-19 -Stay the F*** Home on 2020/09/09 16:45
notifications are delayed or absent; widget doesn't update unless you open the app; enabling background app refresh does nothing.
Love it!
by Simply 2 YouTuber on 2020/09/09 14:03
I love it, it’s really awesome because it helps you organize your life style super easily! I really enjoy the goal option, it can schedule sessions for you, for example if you want to learn piano! Really awesome, 5 stars. - simply 2 (youtuber)
Much slower than native apple calendar
by AdamArnesen on 2020/09/08 11:51
I have used Google calendar for years and it is my preferred calendaring app. However, recently it has started taking forever to load my calendars. I have a few Google native calendars and an O365 calendar from my phone shown. It takes more than 10 seconds almost every time I open the app before my calendar shows up. I need it to be much faster. I'm this close to just using the built-in apple calendar app.
Excellent App!
by chargers79 on 2020/09/08 03:32
I really love using this app. I wish there’s a way to set the default notification to 5 minutes 🤔
App icon
by MotorHead car games on 2020/09/08 02:54
Love google calendar. Myself and 6 other real estate agents on a team all coordinate through it and it’s amazing. However, I wish the icon on your phone home screen would tell you the actual day, as opposed to always displaying the 31st. Like apples calendar app shows you the date, and even the clock app, actually displays the time, down to the second hand moving on your home screen. That’s excellent.
J’aime Google Calendar

Should show actual date on app icon
by POTATO LOVER PEEPS on 2020/09/06 06:37
Google Calandar is an amazing app. I really recommend it to everyone! This app let’s me stay organized. It’s helpful for school work, and I love how aesthetic it looks. Everything is just so amazing. Keep up the good work everyone!
Love it
by drdrcasey on 2020/09/05 09:55
I love the app, it’s so convenient for all my college classes! However, I did switch over to Google calendar from the Apple calendar and let me say this.. it makes me UNCOMFORTABLE that I can’t see what day it is on the face of the app. I was able to see what day it was with the Apple calendar, without opening it! I would appreciate it if the developers of this app could kindly make this change. I feel like it would benefit more people than just me. Thank you.
by bob'sadvise on 2020/09/04 23:56

Repeat Weekday events are Hard to Add
by sleeplessNSanJose on 2020/09/04 04:23
It’s pretty good for scheduling one-off events or daily/weekly/monthly events, but not unique intervals like repeat weekday only events.
Love it but it could improve
by Cmmc99 on 2020/09/03 16:10
I love this app and it helps me organize myself much better. However, I wish it had an option of editing the alert sound and making it Louder, like an alarm. Sometimes the notification goes off when I leave the room and it goes by unnoticed. I wish I could customize this. It would make the whole experience much better.
I want to love this app
by brytonmackey on 2020/09/03 09:51
I am also a Apple lover but recently wanting to move from Apple calendar, reminders to google calendar, & tasks. Only thing I wish, is that SIRI was available for google calendar & tasks! I am constantly hands free when I need to get a calendar event done or reminder! I absolutely love not having to punch in all the info when I can just say it & Siri does it for me.
App Cover Image
by coffeedreams88 on 2020/09/03 01:32
Can we PLEASE get the app cover to change with the dates!!??!! Please????? And could we get a strike through function where instead of deleting an event we didn’t go to for whatever reason, we can just change the status to “didn’t go” or “cancelled?”
Add Tasks to google calendar!
by Juliettaxb on 2020/09/02 02:56
This google calendar app would be so much nicer if tasks would show up on the mobile version too and not just on desktop/laptops.
Terrible app, very buggy on iOS
by rg1729 on 2020/09/01 23:52
Still ugly
by drjwr on 2020/09/01 02:15
Ever since the update that gave us squared corners, grid lines, and pushed the minimalist look to the gutter. And . . . In the iPad monthly view, no times are shown. You have to open the event. Are you kidding me?
Would like to sync with Outlook
by cvgee on 2020/08/31 22:08
Google Calendar is my preferred calendar, especially since we can combine all family (Google) calendars all in one place. I would like to sync my Outlook calendar so that I only need to reference one app. You can add a static outlook calendar but that’s not useful. Apparently this is a new-ish issue (Outlook and Google not syncing), but I hope it’s something Google can/will fix.
Google Calendar
by Lovelent on 2020/08/31 21:23
I used google calendar to stay organized in college. My only concern is how come tasks don’t show up on the app but shows up when you use it on the computer
10/10 would recommend buuttt Only one problem
by Hufflepuff11201 on 2020/08/31 15:07
The only problem I have with the app so far is that you aren’t able to make events that go past the end of the month. Like if I’m trying to add someone to my schedule at last’s from the 30th of September to the 4th of October, I have to make two separate events that don’t connect, which isn’t much of a problem but just something that I think would improve the app. Very good overall and is working very well. It will be very helpful to my student self and keeping track of assignments:)
by jabucanac on 2020/08/31 14:12
please insert Serbian language
App should reflect browser version
by SEADJ on 2020/08/31 13:02
Please allow more color options! The colors should be customizable. We should be able to add more calendars, and not have to go on our laptops each time!
by minijacks on 2020/08/31 05:42
Love the app! But can y'all make an update so that the icon date changes to the actual date and not just ”31” all the time?!
Add More Colors
by its.lymari on 2020/08/31 01:13
I like the app. It helps me get more organized but my only issue would be is that when setting reminders i can’t change the color it’s always the same. I like my calendar to be color coded especially with my reminders since they are all for different tasks.
by Waz up 345 on 2020/08/30 20:02
Seems like goals feature needs some work. Needs more flexibility.
No Apple Watch app
by Majjkiii on 2020/08/30 06:27
I’m irritated to realize that there’s no app for the Apple Watch. I’ll have to reconsider gmail as my main calendar now; I want a calendar that I can pull up on the go, on my watch.
Needs option to repeat M/W/F
by df<3jh on 2020/08/29 20:43
The custom repeat options on iOS needs to be improved. On my old android, and on my laptop, I could set an event to repeat every M/W/F, or T/Th, which is really useful to put in classes. But iOS doesn’t have that option. The “repeat every 2 days” option on iOS doesn’t cut it.
Customization limit
by honestUnicornFish on 2020/08/29 16:00
Would like to add images as the header and the icon for that date on the calendar
Searching google calendar in Ipad
by jake's problem on 2020/08/29 15:56
Why hasn’t google fixed the search function in the calendar app for Ipad? There have been multiple postings on several sites, for several years about this issue.
need more colors
by w0zbunny on 2020/08/28 00:05
great functionality— which the date choosing option from desktop was on mobile too. but mostly i need more colors to keep my classes and activities organized effectively!!!
by BossMayne Dan on 2020/08/27 20:58

Don’t use it because of “31”
by Cheezeball123 on 2020/08/27 10:08
Apple calendar is lacking for the Google reminders which I use often on google calendar but I can’t get past that the app icon doesn’t show the current date. Seems like a simple fix that Apple established years ago. I use Apple Calendar on my phone and the web browser for google calendar. Would really like google calendar to catch up so I can use it as my default.
Almost a 5 star but..
by Awesome!! ^_^ on 2020/08/27 02:54
Vertical scroll PLEASE! And more color options on events would be great too. But if only one of these is an option.. VERTICAL scroll!!!! Also it would be nice to see a month view on the Widget screen (similar to that of the My Duty app)
Where are the tasks?
by PVNCH0 on 2020/08/26 20:28

Apple Watch Application
by DanniRT on 2020/08/26 14:35
Just started using this app to keep track of all my sons schools work and activities. Is there a way that it can be added to the Apple Watch? Maybe like Apple ICal. I work in a hospital and sometimes just don’t have a phone around and would be nice to have that application on my watch. Thank you
Tasks not in phone app
by lizpls on 2020/08/25 21:30
I love this app because it helps me stay organized, but one thing I don’t like is that when using it on my phone, it doesn’t have the tasks like it does on my laptop.

Doesn’t send notifications on Monday’s
by Nazare30 on 2020/08/24 23:50
Worked great up until a couple weeks ago when it decided to stop sending me notifications about events scheduled on Mondays. I stopped getting any of the reminders I set for those events and completely missed them. Please look into this.
Tasks integration
by Baronvonguinther on 2020/08/24 16:21
It would be very helpful to have tasks show on the calendar app (schedule). I use tasks and the calendar, but would like to see what my day/week looks like with my events, reminders, and tasks in one place. Thank you.
Could be one better of you...
by koreanchaos on 2020/08/23 19:34
Instead of your widget appearing with “31” it seems to make sense to have the current date appear like that of the Apple calendar application Thank you Chae Bond
You should get this
by mtbirdman89 on 2020/08/23 07:54

Confusing to Sync
by Dousedflames on 2020/08/23 06:23
I had a very hard time trying to sync my apple calendar to my google calendar, and then trying to look at it online. I had to start over. I needed to share my calendars with someone who does not use Apple, but all of my events were already in Apple! I also would like a watch version of this app!
Needs more features
by Livyrowe05 on 2020/08/22 15:52
The best calendar I’ve used, I wish I could use all the colors when creating an event. I also want to be able to add/delete a calendar from my phone, right now that’s only possible on a computer :(
Actual date
by hmb69 on 2020/08/21 17:11
Why can’t Google calendar display the actual date instead of always displaying 31?
Love this app and the widget feature
by 123xyz21 on 2020/08/21 13:31
It allows me to organize my life and sync across all my devices pretty much instantly. I have been using google calendar for years and now with remote learning I need it more than ever to keep on track with my assignments and tasks. The widget is what really sold me. Unlike the calendar app it shows all day events and multiple day events with the drop down all in the widget. I love this feature as the Calendar doesn’t allow this- at least on the iPad.
by Nephthalie on 2020/08/20 16:26
Make Tasks visible in the google calendar app! Only then will you be perfect 😀

Does not give reminders when it is supposed to, as you set it up to do so.
Can’t Remove Other People’s Calendars
by Blake02 on 2020/08/19 17:41
I finally downloaded this app and I have all of these random calendars from family members showing up that I can’t remove. There’s no way for me to add birthdays to the default “Birthday” calendar. I can’t actually make my own calendars either, I have to create them as events and I have no option to change them to different calendars unless I have a random calendar from my family (that I didn’t add on my own because I’ve never used the app). This app is not user friendly at all.
Birthday Notifications
by USACammo on 2020/08/17 01:39
At the moment Google Calendar loads in birthdays from Apple contacts(from Google contacts) and shows them, but doesn&#39;t notify you the day before or even have an option to configure notifications for the&#34;birthday calendar&#34;. This means unless you check the calendar you might miss one. Add notification settings for this. This seems like an easy fix, please consider! Otherwise an amazing app

Great App but Needs More iOS Functions
by Zimmy on 2020/08/15 17:08
I love this app and I am so happy it integrates with siri so that I can verbally schedule events before I forget them. I am a scatter brain! This also means that when my phone sends me alerts and banners and notifications, sometimes I swipe before I fully read them. I NEED alarms (long, loud ringtones that require my intervention to stop) on my calendar. PLEASE, as a teacher who is struggling so so badly, find a way to customize the sounds in the app. The chime is too faint and this calendar won&#39;t be 100% functional for me on my iPhone until I can actually hear it. I don&#39;t like apples calendar app and I use google calendar in my middle school classrooms. I beg the beneficent google gods to hear my plea and work this out!!!
Can’t sync events
by tintin_seu on 2020/08/15 11:58
Reinstalled and removed google account, still can’t sync events. Reminds , tasks and birthdays all work well, but events can’t be synced!
App face
by hdgjbvjk on 2020/08/15 01:01
Please make the face of the app w the day and date like the iPhone calendar has. I would then give 5 stars.
by RANDOM PERSON YAYYY on 2020/08/14 21:08
I recently started distance learning because of COVID-19 and I had no clue how I was gonna manage my time and schedule. Usually we get teacher guidance but since we can’t see are teachers in person, they couldn’t rly give it to us. Anyways, I was browsing the App Store like usual when I came across this app. I downloaded it instantly and fell in love with it. It was exactly what I was looking for. I can add reminders to log on to a zoom, I can add due dates for assignments, and if I give it access to contacts, it can even add birthdays of my friends and family. Now it may sound like other calendar apps, but the thing that sets it apart are the amazing graphics. I get bored easily, but this app didn’t bore me. You can color code reminders and events which is amazing and each months have cute graphics and drawings. So yeah, it’s awesome. I just have one suggestion: In the beginning, it was hard to navigate and understand how to add events and things like that. If possible, could you add a tutorial feature for people who are just starting out? I feel like that would be very helpful, and many would agree. Thanks for your time, and keep making great apps google :)
Great App, but one wish
by The_Hybreed on 2020/08/13 16:22
I appreciate how the app syncs with my iCloud to transfer over all my events in my Apple calendar app, but one thing I wish for is that the app’s icon updates its calendar like apples. Then it’d be perfect.
Not allowing multiple email accounts!?!
by ladycarol770 on 2020/08/13 02:12
The calendar was flawless until they recently updated to show one calendar for one email. For me, I have both a work email and personal email and love having them overlap. Please fix this google! It was perfect until something broke. Stop messing with your products.
Barebones - Needs Apple Watch and CarPlay Support
by JayyGeyy on 2020/08/12 15:38
Lacks an Apple Watch app so I can’t put complications of my appts on my watch faces. And also lacks CarPlay so I can’t easily click to dial in for meetings when I’m driving.
by Mrs. NayNay on 2018/05/06 16:05
My life was becoming extremely crazy and I kept &#34;double booking&#34; 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 &#34;check her calendar&#34; 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&#39;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
by Angrymonkeymermaid on 2018/12/23 17:33
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.
Recent updates have seriously ruined this app
by pianoman.82 on 2018/05/24 14:09
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.
I like it, but it needs improvement
by Colton2077 on 2018/09/23 23:08
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.
Add More Colors/ Set Up A New Calendar
by Lupe0604 on 2020/01/06 05:53
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.
No Apple Watch/Subscribed Calendars
by JT@Itunes on 2020/07/17 15:25
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.
Helps me organize my life!!
by MoMo527527 on 2019/07/15 17:25
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!!
Absolutely a disaster
by Ibrad14 on 2018/05/23 16:12
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!
Convenient but could be improved
by lalaniam on 2018/01/04 21:18
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.
PLEASE FIX IT GOOGLE: So disappointed on how buggy it is
by guess15me on 2018/01/23 18:33
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.
Freezes, lags, even randomly starts scrolling back to years past
by Chosen7Stone on 2018/04/19 15:07
I want to like this app. On my laptop browser, I keep Google Calendar open in a pinned tab because I rely on and appreciate it so much. But as an app, it’s the worst thing on my phone - and I’ve kept using it because of how heavily I rely on it. But today, I’m searching the App Store for alternatives. A recent update said they were addressing the freezing issues some users experience. I haven’t seen improvement. This morning, I kept three people waiting so I could let them know whether I was available in two weeks - the app opened, promptly froze, and then zoomed me back to April 2017, then June 1970. I’m writing this in April 2018. The conversation moved on; ten minutes later, I was still checking the app to see if it had caught up and would allow me to scroll forward two weeks. I eventually gave up. Sometimes I want to edit an existing event and the window halfway opens, then lags/freezes. It takes 5-6 minutes to open, even if I close and reopen the app. I have no idea how to fix this. It is a wonderful, wonderful app — when it works. I can’t afford to wait for it to be fixed anymore.
Best Free Calendar App You Can Get
by shelbhoc on 2019/03/25 19:39
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
by Tom D. Kim on 2017/09/18 20:23
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&#39;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. 🙂
Awesome App!
by Stootsy on 2020/03/13 08:03
After losing my entire Outlook Calendar during a PC switch, I started using the Google calendar, and I’ve never considered using anything else. This app instantly updates everything on all my devices in real time, and meets all my needs. As the president of a local non-profit organization, and communications manager, it is critical that my schedule is accurate and clear. This app provides all the amenities necessary to achieve the goals of our group as well as my personal appointments. The color coding is one of my favorite perks. The “Find” feature is awesome for tracking previous schedules as well when tracking year-end reporting to build the calendar for the new year ahead. I highly recommend this app for anyone who is constantly on the go.
Excellent Calendar, even better with a few tweaks
by E.G.G S. on 2018/12/12 19:44
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.
Started off a 5⭐️ app
by Rachel Dalton on 2018/05/17 12:13
I downloaded this a while ago and it was amazing. Definitely the best calendar app I’ve ever used by a long shot! But over the past few weeks this app has been a real thorn in my side. The first issues were speed. I would hit something and the lag time would be so great that my phone would dim trying to go to sleep. But eventually it would load and I could put in new calendar entries and see my schedule. It was usable. I would’ve probably given it a 2.5 ⭐️ rating during that period of time. But now I can’t use it at all. It immediately crashes every single time I open the app. Not only have I lost the ability to put in new entries all together but I’ve also lost my ability to even see my schedule. I’m so frustrated. I really loved this app but they really need to make and update to fix this issue and fast. I’m sure they are working as hard as they can to hone in on the issue, but until then, I’ll be using apple’s calendar app and checking my google calendar on a computer. I look forward to hearing the issues have been resolved once they have been.
Pretty, Useless
by ☆Anna☆Belle★ on 2018/05/23 03:07
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 quite ready for prime time
by Supuflourous Flounder on 2018/02/19 09:03
I love google calendar, mostly. I share my calendar with people I need to schedule with, and we keep synchronized. But what really drives me crazy are monthly recurring events, of the form of “Third Wednesday of the month” or “Second Saturday of the month”. There is no “repeat” option for these kinds of events. I wrote a calendar app in 1977, on a timesharing system, that had this functionality in its 1.0 release. I have been asking google for this feature for several years, and while they keep coming out with cutesy graphics and other worthless features, the fundamental functionality of monthly recurring meetings is missing. There are insufficient colors for all my activities, mostly because they have chosen a weird subset of colors and assigned cute names to them. I would like to create my own colors and assign my own names to them. Right now, “sage”=“Skype meeting”, “banana”=“medical appointment”, “Tangerine”=“writers’ group”, “grape”=“volunteer”. I would like to say “RGB(255,255,0)”=“medical”, and have the color yellow appear as the color name “medical”. It is annoying to have to keep this dictionary in my head; the app should help me. I’ve been asking for this feature for years as well. Instead, I get cutesy graphics apparently designed to appeal to 14-year-olds, not retired professionals. So it is a tolerable app for what I need, but a far cry from a professional app designed to support real-world needs.
Could be great but rn it’s no good
by Canongirl_PDX on 2018/02/17 15:00
This could be amazing, and looking at reviews it was at one point (🤷🏼‍♀️), but it’s current iteration is buggy and pointless. When importing events from email it loads them incorrectly. Despite the event saying it’s on the 6th at 11pm, it loads on the 7th at 12pm. It would be one thing if I could edit the event but there’s no way to do that. So either I need to have the event incorrect on my calendar and just remember when it actually is (which totally negates the purpose of a calendar) or delete it and add it manually which seems cumbersome considering an abundance of calendar apps that can add events correctly. Then there are some events that are completely ignored while others are completely generated from thin air - apparently I’m going to Abu Dahbi next month which is news to me. Maybe this calendar app is awesome for those who need to build their entire days themselves? If you’re someone like me though, that needs to aggregate events from your email and to add items around those, this app is/should be a hard pass until google gets this sorted.
50/50 satisfied
by beepbeepbln on 2018/08/16 09:38
Honestly I just went back to using IOS built in mail and calendar apps in my iPhone bc the google calendar and gmail app are ANNOYING. after years of advanced technology why can’t google have a calendar app that shows and updates the correct date (it always says 31). Mac figures it out for iCal. Why can’t google? Another major issue.... I hate that adjusting settings and making edits to events is limited on the app. My default calendar is Work. It’s color coded in green for organizing. But I also have color coded calendars for Personal, reminders, fitness, financing and bills. If I enter a new event it automatically will put it under the work calendar. Then I have to open Mac’s iCal and edit the calendar I want it to be under. But then you go back to Google calendar app and it will show the same event under Work and whatever other category I changed it to. Also from a design and visual perspective I wish they’d redesign it. It looks so juvenile.
Constant Crashing and Slow Loading
by ABTulip03 on 2018/05/23 12:47
My husband and I (along with another adult in our family) have tried for almost a year to use this app as our calendar app to share our calendars and collaborate. After MANY months of use I am comfortable in stating that this app is HORRIBLE!! It crashes ALL THE TIME!! It also take FOREVER to load...which is super inconvenient when I’m standing at the appointment desk of the doctor’s office, trying to input an appointment time. I also travel quite a bit and I’ve had the instance occur where I have put in an event while I’m in one time zone and it automatically changes the event time when I go back home to my time zone. I did not realize this was happening until we missed one of my son’s soccer games completely because we arrived an hour late. I then took a look at all the appointments and events I had put in my calendar at the same time I entered that game and they had all shifted. How annoying!! 😡 I keep hoping the updates will fix all these issues, but no such luck. I am currently looking for a new calendar app. Ugh!
Google calendar
by bgoogleme on 2020/01/29 17:39
I love google calendar for the smooth integration and consolidation of events from various aspects of my life. Also, I love to see my calendar in the month view on my phone where I can actually see the events coming up without clicking on a day (you cannot do this on the iPhone calendar). Google calendar is the biggest reason I use mostly google products. However, I’ve recently switched to iPhone and noticed that I no longer have the ability to see my daily tasks in the calendar. I loved the consolidation of my tasks and events in one place. It was like this with Samsung, but not the iPhone. Why is this? Also, after adding an event it takes you to another screen. You have to press ‘back’ in order to get to the month view again. Is there a way to take away this extra step? Otherwise, I love google everything.
Past due reminders list is short with no scrolling on iPad version
by TG64 on 2019/06/14 20:53
I’ve been using this calendar app for awhile and generally like it, but the last couple of updates have introduced some behavior that is frustrating me. For iPad version the list of past due reminders comes up in a very short box and doesn’t let me scroll down to look at the whole list. This works fine on the iPhone version. For iPhone version when I open a reminder to mark it complete there’s a moment when the screen goes black before the reminder comes’s just long enough that I always wonder if the app crashed on me. Same thing happens when I press Mark As Complete and it goes back to the week calendar. Otherwise the app has been functioning reasonably well for me and I do use it daily to keep my personal and work events organized.
Don’t waste your time with Google Calendar App
by Dj1855 on 2017/12/02 14:39
Online/Conputer version is great. App if horrible. Don’t waste your time with the app unless you only want to visually see your appointments. Entering is worthless. I’ll only state two issues: 1) You can’t copy and paste and event/appointment on the app. You can only move it. So if you’re entering an appointment that you’ve had before you have to re-enter all the details from scratch. Waste of time. You can do this directly in google via a computer, but the feature is not available on the app. 2) People that need a calendar app are typically busy people with multiple parts of their lives. It’s great the google allows you to create multiple calendars for different activities. However you can only do that online via a computer. When you create an event/appointment in the app there is no option to decide which calendar you’re creating the event for. I could go critique the app some more, but these 2 features, which are easily done if you have a computer and are signed into google, do not carry over to the app. They are essential features. Soo essential and intuitive that when you first get the app you send lots of time looking for where the features would be because you would never think that they don’t exist on the app. You literally find yourself scratching your head as to why the features aren’t there. It basically renders the app as just a tool to view your events and nothing else.
Few Minor things that could help
by Kiara,qwertyuiop on 2020/03/08 18:23
1. Integrating Tasks with mobile: It seems strange that they would only show up on desktop 2. Task lists from events: It would be so awesome if I could make a list in task that is automatically connected to an event. I am a student so being able to connect to-do’s to my specific classes in calendar would be great 3. A notes section for each day: currently there is a notes section for each event in which I can add details and links which is great, but it would be awesome if there was a way to view all notes compiled for that day. So if I have some details for “class at 9am” and some for “meeting at 2pm” there would be one view that shows all the details for both these events together. This could also be done by integrating Keep and adding event/date tags that can be created in calendar.
Shuts down upon opening app
by kayyyce on 2018/03/16 06:59
I used to loveeee this app! I am a nursing student, I work part time and per diem, and i have a very busy social life as well. An organized calendar is essential for my world. And when I first downloaded this app it worked so great being able to connect it with my online account too. But the past few updates keep saying that its for “bug fixes” but for the past few weeks now, every time i open the app, its freezes for a few seconds and shuts down completely. I can’t even check my schedule to see whats coming up because it shut downs so quickly. And its absolutely frustrating. I did not want to write a bad review because, like I said, this app was a life savor before, but now I cant stand it. I was hoping to contact someone regarding the app but there is not contact information so writing this review is the closest I can get to it. So hopefully one of the developers or anyone working on this app cam read these bad reviews and hopefully fix the problems ASAP! Thanks.
Missing Just One Thing
by Sonnysretreat on 2018/11/02 20:16
Before I get to my biggest disappointment, I want to say that having the google app, calendar, and gmail app have made way more simpler. Planning, coordinating, and attending events, appointments, and even dates has been smooth. I can actually handle making a schedule. Now for the major critique. I don’t like the Apple Calendar because it’s not user friendly like the google calendar. HOWEVER, when looking at the Apple calendar the date is readily available on the face of the app prior to opening it. Google, please, modify the face of the app to do this as well. I’m sure there’s no law against it. Nor would it cause a major rift in the competition between Apple and Google. In my personal opinion as a consumer, it will generate more Google Calendar users than before because it’s improves the app to be more user friendly.
Must-Have Best App ever
by aghakakajahaha on 2019/12/06 02:07
Recently I had checked google calendar and realized I had a meeting with my boss. I had totally forgotten about the meeting and made it on time thanks to google calendar. Google calendar is great to use because it has everything in one app. Google calendar allows you to add events, tasks, reminders, and even goals. Tasks are events that you plan on doing. Reminders are things that you want to remind yourself. Goals are things that you want to achieve like exercise. The cool thing is that you can share your events with other people so they know, For example if you’re having a party you can share the event with the party guests and you can add a note with the things people should bring. I promise you, google calendar is the best calendar ever.
Takes a long time to load every time I open the app
by Ellie859 on 2018/05/12 13:04
This app has come a long way and it’s usability and function as a calendar improves with every update. However, recently it takes a long time to load when I open the app. I open the app, the calendar opens, but it doesn’t respond to my actions to create an event or view a certain day for close to 1 minute. And, when it finally does load, it automatically goes to the same month, but in a different year. So, have to bring it to today before I can do anything. It’s quite frustrating especially if I’m working with Another person trying to land a date/time on my calendar to meet... I have to wait for my calendar to load before I can do anything every time I open the app. It’s quite frustrating. This happens no matter if I’m logged into WiFi or using data. Thank you for your attention to this issue.
Can’t Adjust Google Calendar Upcoming Event Alert Sound on IPhone
by every morning user on 2020/02/29 05:48
I would give the Google Calendar 5 stars until I realized that it makes a single rather muted sound on my iPhone when I have an upcoming event. Would never hear it if I wasn’t right next to my phone. When I used the iCloud calendar I could select from a number of upcoming alert sounds — some softer, some pretty loud—and repeat the sound if desired. But there is only one single “bleep” type alert sound for an event on the Google calendar. I like the Google calendar because I can print out my calendar from my desktop which I could not do using my iCloud calendar...maybe because my PC uses the it’s a trade off. Right now I’m using both calendars on my I see duplicate calendar events but at least I have an audible iPhone alert that I can hear and a calendar I can print from my desktop.
Awesome app, some bugs
by oreosheeranx on 2019/07/14 19:39
Google calendar is a lifesaver. I’m a high school student and my life right now is packed with volunteering and sports and music, and having this calendar really helps me stay organized and look professional. The only problems I have are these: I’ve noticed that some of the dates that I put events in sometimes shift to a day before/after. I also can’t change the date of birthdays synced from my contacts directly on google calendar. I also wish that there were more colors and more variety to color the events, and also a way to organize which sort of event is which color. Otherwise, excellent app and I will definitely keep using it.
Great planner

Functional, customizable, and sleek design. However, would love a few more customizable features to make it even more intuitive. I want the ability to pick which Details are displayed when creating a new event and which are hidden under the “More Options”. By pulling out the settings that I use most often, I could create events even more quickly. Also wish that the description I write for events was visible without having to click on the event to view details. Especially for events that take up more space in the daily/weekly view, I would love to be able to read the details from there. I use this space for reminders and to-do lists for specific events, but since that detail is not shown without clicking on the event I can forget things.

Two things about this calendar keep it from being my favorite... the lack of a full month calendar view (complete with visibility of the events added, not just dots with a list below)... and the fact that the app doesn’t show the day’s date. I would manage with the dot/list version of the month calendar if, when I looked at my phone and saw the app it gave me a quick reference of the days date, like the iphone calendar does. Incidentally, that single stand-out feature is the ONLY thing I like about the iPhone calendar... The full calendar view offered by TinyCalendar has me using theirs, for now, but I would prefer to use google calendar for the ease of sharing calendars right through the app, rather than having to do so via browser...
Current date is not prominently displayed
by Cj77532 on 2018/10/03 18:09
I wish this calendar was more like the apple calendar. The only reason I don’t use the Apple calendar is because my family needs a shared calendar and we don’t all have iPhones. The biggest problem I have with this app is that it does not display the date on the app icon (as Apple does), so I can quickly reference what day it is without needing to open the app. Maybe Apple has the rights to that or maybe it’s simply not an option, I don’t know. But if not, then it would be nice to have some kind of bright, vivid highlight on the current date once inside the app. Something the highlights the ENTIRE square, not just the number. Looking on my phone screen for the tiny number encircled by color is not instantaneous and requires some searching among the other dates and event color blocks.
Love Google Calendar - hate the app.
by YelhsaJaneOh on 2017/10/19 10:03
I love that the app integrates across all of my calendars. I like the notification features. As an app, that is as far as my interests go. The sharing solely on the computer is less than ideal. I LOVE that you can share a detailed and non-detailed version of the calendar. I don&#39;t like that you can&#39;t alter calendars on the app and I HATE the aesthetics of the app. Just making the calendar look more like the pc would fix a great portion of my dislike for this app. The dark bubbles are distracting and you can&#39;t read what the appointment says without clicking on it. I would like a one glance view for the week. I only use/update google calendar because my manager and clients can view the calendar with ease and without having the actual app (I work with an older population. Many of them have flip phones) If I did not need to share my calendar I would only use planner pro. I love the aesthetics and it has all of the integration and features that I need.
Not good for the avid traveler
by Cdub.25 on 2017/12/09 09:38
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
Lots of bugs to be addressed
by caleblanc1 on 2018/04/30 01:04
As a college student, Google Calendars is my lifeline. But lately, I’ve encountered a ton of different issues with the app that make it really difficult to actually utilize the app’s functions. First off, it freezes ALL the time - swiping to a different week/month, adding new events, or editing current events will all freeze up the app for a significant chunk of time, sometimes upwards of a minute or more. Sometimes I’ll save an event and it’ll disappear the next time I open the app. Lately my problem has been the app quitting as soon as I open it. It’s making it extremely difficult to use this app, and frankly it’s become very unreliable to me as a student. I give it 3 stars because it used to work well and serve a good purpose, but if these bugs don’t get fixed soon, Google is about to lose a user.
I normally like this app, but...
by mzmyewski on 2018/02/06 21:54
I haven’t said anything because I keep thinking this issue will get resolved, but with today’s release I am still experiencing the same issue. For the last 3 or 4 releases, the app sometimes freezes upon opening it. This sometimes happens and sometimes does not. When the freeze does occur, it will last for up to 20 seconds or so. When it becomes “unstuck”, I can only swipe through the calendar for approximately 4 weeks and the app freezes again for several seconds. This happens on both my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6S Plus. I am not sure if this is a problem with the app itself or if it is some sort of communication issue with Google, but it gets rather annoying since I use this app for my business.
Deletion, Assignment of Other Calendars, & Snoozing
by DezSielen on 2018/04/13 12:50
I would like to be able to snooze a goal and have it pop up again in a preset time, like 5-30 minutes. I can select “later” but I can never find it again. I also think it would be beneficial if we could delete multiple goals/events at one time, very much like we do with photos, where we can edit and select multiple items, and then delete. Lastly, when using the app version of the google calendar I cannot choose which of my multiple calendars an event is added to. This means that I have to try and remember each color I assigned each color and add the color accordingly manually. That’s a bummer. Therefore, the calendar is not as helpful as I had hoped. It’s also very colorful when looking at the day by day scrolling view and looks very busy.
Recent updates make app impossible to use
by Amallard09 on 2018/01/18 11:42
This app used to be great and I used to use it all the time. The recent updates make it very difficult to use now. The little loading circle in the middle is constantly running. It never goes away. Ever. I have even tried deleting and reinstalling the app. It’s still there. Just non stop spinning. On top of that, the biggest issue is that I can’t create an event. To create an event, you touch the + button in the bottom right hand corner. It gives you 3 options, create a goal, a reminder, or an event. The problem is that once you actually select that + button, the “create an event” button is masked right on top the + button which toggles the menu open and close, while the other buttons are nice and above it. As a result, if I try to select the create an event button, it just toggles the menu closed again. Very frustrating that I can’t realistically use this app on iOS anymore.

I have google meet for my meetings now and it says you could schedule a meeting with google app but I looked around and can’t really find how to do that but over all I think it’s cool and also shows all my assignments in google classroom on there due dates and I read your reviews too about the update being bad and so when it pops up I would actually say yes because I want to see if the app read your reviews their selfs so I want to see if they in proved the in proof but if it goes bad like you people say I will totally delete the app and re download it so I might start over but like I said over all I like this app so that’s why I would re download it and once I say yes I will totally write another review about my new experience so yes bye......
Get it together Google
by Mama keesh on 2018/04/20 10:46
I’m on the market for new calendar app. We are a family of five with two working parents, a high schooler, middle schooler, and elementary schooler...all with activities, events, and travel. Have a collaborative calendar environment (that works...hint, hint Google) is an absolute must for my family. Minus the youngest crew member, we all have google accounts so google calendar was initially a life saver as I provided that collaborative environment we needed to keep track of all the activity. At this point I’m only giving the app one star because I can’t give it zero. It freezes, is lagging, changes times, shuts down...all functions I’m certain aren’t a compliment to an app. We use a calendar because we are BUSY so using a calendar that takes a LOT of time to use is counterproductive and the reason why I’m on the hunt for sometime better. Wish you hadn’t let me down Google. You were so good to me at first and now your just a bum.
by St.Mark Youth Ministry on 2019/12/20 18:39
We need to use google calendar to help us in our youth ministry but we are having a hard time figuring out the fastest and most convenient way to allow the youth to subscribe to our calendar. We tried using the permission link but it takes them to a webpage and even when it asks them to download the app (which is rear), they would have to go back to the link and press on it again after the app is downloaded and it doesn’t always work that way either. We are requesting a fast, easy, and convenient way to press on a link that prompts users to downloading the app and then subscribes automatically. (Notice: we have tried using the “invite a specific person” feature but that also did not work)
by Cyzvcfyj on 2018/04/06 11:51
〰️ UPDATE 〰️ The app is working and it’s phenomenal! I’m pretty blown away by the features, to be honest. The fact that it can find time for me to do more things and automatically program goals!? I love it! Maybe the other calendar apps I used really sucked, or maybe this one is just that awesome (when it works) CHEERS! 🥂 - I wish this app would work because the one time it did, my calendar looked so great. But I mean, literally, that ONE time it worked when I first downloaded it. Granted, I’ve only had it for two days, but I’ve only been able to use it once. I saw that it managed to sync all of my work calendars and trips automatically, which again, amazing...just wish it would work!
Missing Desktop Functionality
by Aphetoros on 2018/09/17 17:13
Hey google- Workflow issue here. I should be able to do everything on the app that I can do on the PC. This ONE feature has caused me to lower my rating from 5 to 2 stars, so I’d appreciate it if you’d fix it. ON PC I can select an event and change it from one calendar to another. On mobile, I have to copy it to the new calendar and then delete it from the old calendar to avoid duplicate events. This wouldn’t be so bad if it was once in a while, but it happens every time an app or email adds something to my calendar on iphone because iphone inputs a default calendar. As someone who has to put a massive amount of events into a calendar from a mobile device, this will cause HOURS of extra work. Please add a feature to change an event’s calendar, even if it’s a roundabout way such as a single button that simultaneously duplicates the event to the selected calendar and deletes the old event. OR a confirmation dialog after “copy to...” that says, “Delete original event? [Yes] [No]” box. Heck, add a, “Are you sure you want to delete this event? [Yes] [No]” box with a “[] Remember my choice for next time.” feature. OTHERWISE: Great calendar. Really useful. Exactly what I need. If this is changed, my review will change to 5 stars and be updated accordingly.

Love google calendar. I’ve been using now for almost 2 years. I like that my husband and I can both add things and it keeps us in the loop for both of schedules. I wish when I was in a different time zone and added something that it would give me the option to choose EST instead of assuming I meant local time. And then when I get home to the east coast and the things I added are all in PST. I also wish there was an option when adding an event that I could add transportation time. I love that it syncs with google maps so I can just click on the location and it pulls that up for me. I also wish if it did have that, there would be an option in the notifications like “remind me 30 min before I need to leave”.
Took an arrow to the knee...
by dnewcomb on 2018/08/09 13:00
Google Calendar USED to be a fantastic calendar app, but something went wrong in the last year and the team doesn’t seem interested in fixing it. On my iPhone X, the app is practically unusable. Add a new doesn’t show up. Move an shows it in the same spot as before. Accept or decline an invitation...still shows as if you haven’t responded. However, kill the app and restart it and most of things have actually been done. Seems as if the info is getting to the server, but then the mobile client doesn’t get or display the updated state. I would really love to have this app back again working like it did before. There are new things I would like as well, such as moving events to a different calendar, but honestly just getting back to functional again would be enough for now. Until then, I suggest exploring other calendar app options.
This app is BROKEN starting in 2018
by Momo7563 on 2018/02/26 14:13
Used to love this app, I have a calendar with my wife and we plan everything together so google calendar is our best friend. But this app is completely broken. It freezes when open, I can’t switch months, making an event is completely out of the question because it freezes or takes years to type anything. If you can even make it to any of those points the app will eventually crash after 1 or 2 minutes of freezig, laggy frustration. Usually this also bricks my phone and makes it unusable in other apps and I end up having to hard reset my entire phone because it feels like the memory is still tied up trying to figure out what to do with the calendar app Very disappointed by google, this has been the case for WEEKS and a patch still has not gone out to fix it despite multiple updates being pushed out for the app.
Please integrate with Tasks & add calendars
by Becxcbb on 2020/05/13 21:09
I would love this app much more if it integrated with Google Tasks like the web one does. I want to plan out a day/week but don’t want to put “tasks” on my calendar as events. I primarily use my ipad for everything and dislike having to go back and forth from it to a laptop. Also, the ability to add calendars in the calendar app would be very helpful. Again, primarily an ipad user and don’t usually have a laptop/desktop to go back to. One more thing that would be helpful - when setting the repeat option on an event/reminder, it would be helpful if we could customize it to choose the days of the week instead of just “daily”. Some things I don’t want to do on the weekends but want to spend time doing every Mon-Fri.
