You haven’t updated this app in three months so is it safe to use or should I delete it?
So I’ve been using this app for years and love it but...
by somerphoenix on 2021/02/23 20:30
What is going on with goals!!! I have goals I’ve used for over a year just disappear. And then if I try to create a new goal it doesn’t populate correctly. For example daily goals will only pop once or twice a week and not start for five days.
App icon should show the date
by Tok Tok Mee on 2021/02/22 21:23
I find it redundant to have to click on the app just to check out what today’s date is...
Couldn't live without
by Lykceb on 2021/02/22 21:14
Absolutely love this app! I do with there were some features added to the app that are available on the desktop, such as colors mimicking desktop web version more precisely (on desktop I have a calendar colored white with black text but it shows up gray on the app and I'm not a fan of that). Also I would love to be able to choose custom colors on the app, and not always have to dig out my computer if I'm setting up a new calendar or changing colors around. Diming past events like desktop would be nice as well Some other features that would be nice is Setting default calendar to add events to and Lastly, I would love to be able to set default views. I'm not a fan of the schedule view. I would prefer to use month and it go to the day view when I click on the day.
Widget Update Limitation
by RoyalR3aper on 2021/02/21 22:14
I love the google calendar app. However, the previous updates all had the widget that would fit in multiple days tasks into one widget window. The new update only shows the tasks for the day. So you're not able to quickly check tomorrows tasks fast enough without clicking the app, which I think defeats the widgets purpose and limits it greatly. I wish the old widget remained.
Time Zones
by Jules1829 on 2021/02/19 14:14
The app puts my events in different times zones so they are always off by an hour. And when I try and change it to the correct hour it makes it wrong on my computer. Seems like a bad design choice
I use outlook?
by MDeter67 on 2021/02/19 04:21
I honestly love this app. I wish they would make it for everyone to be able to use regardless of who provided their mail account.
Where is apple watch integration?
by Cory Hardman on 2021/02/19 00:06
Needs apple watch integration
Great app, one little thing...
by Sujatha92 on 2021/02/17 13:39
Beautiful interface, high functioning app. But one little thing bothers me because it’s such a simple little detail. Seems like an easy thing to do, apple calendar does this. Why not have the screen icon reflect the current date instead of a perpetual "31"???
by Tinnnnnnnnne on 2021/02/17 02:57
The iPhone Google calendar app is always slow and delayed when trying to update or edit events. Sometimes after I edit an event and click save— it doesn’t save and I have start over. I have no issues with any other iPhone Google apps, just the calendar.
One little thing....and it’s super picky.
by Big Sunday on 2021/02/16 20:05
The app is worth five stars. I only wish the app icon on the Home Screen showed the actual date which is the sole reason for 4 stars. Otherwise excellent.
Everything great, only one problem
by Ramstep on 2021/02/15 01:50
I would like to have the option to change the time of all the session for a goal at once, because it picks the time for all the session I waste of time changing them one by one. I that could be fixed it would be awesome!
Bad sync issues
by dinocheese on 2021/02/14 22:41
The calendar events created/updated simply “appear” to have been created half the time. When I close the app and open it again, or open on a different device - it’s not there anymore. This usually happens when I’m moving an event from one time slot to another. This is extremely annoying and might even lead to missed appointments and such.
Great choice of calendar!
by nicky3399999 on 2021/02/14 01:06
With this app I can stay on top of my assignments and it really benefits my grades! It is ameasy to use and of all the google apps this one is my favorite. Great app!
by Jaelin0912 on 2021/02/11 10:41
Helps me remember things. Alarms. Easy to set up events so they repeat at whatever frequency I need. Super user friendly. Totally recommend for anyone w ADHD! Better than a planner, in my opinion
Lots of Lock Ups
by BugBitten on 2021/02/11 02:53
Reliability has fallen off significantly. Edit a calendar entry and you edit another without closing & reopening app. Perhaps Google has abandoned it :-(
1.5 hour reminders would be nice
by Khonstanz on 2021/02/10 14:59
I very much enjoy this app. I use it to control all of my appointments for my massage business. It’s very convenient because I travel and factoring travel time is a big deal for me.I love the fact that you can set up reoccurring appointments everything about this app is brilliant except one thing. Why can you not set a reminder for different quantities of time that aren’t full half hours? I mean an 1.25, 2.5, 1.75 reminder PLEASE!!!!!???
Calendar app can’t open Google Meetings in the Google Meet app
by C t K 1 on 2021/02/08 20:09
You’d think Google would intuitively have their calendar app open an event’s meeting link in their own Google Meet app. Instead it opens in the Gmail app. Not only does this make no sense, but it makes it very difficult to multitask with emails during the meeting. This creates difficulties when needing to refer to an email thread relevant to the meeting’s topic. I’m forced to use 2 devices.
Fits my life perfectly
by Linda Javadi on 2021/02/08 14:19
Only a few suggestions for a future update: 1. Have the screen icon reflect the actual date. I’m tired of seeing “31”. 2. Instead of scrolling “horizontally” to see future or previous months. Scrolling vertically is more seamless. Also add a “go to (date)” feature. 3. Color options for Appts need to be more vibrant and varied.
What happened?!!
by D Yama Choco 808 on 2021/02/08 06:36
After the last update, my settings are screwed up....again!! Why oh why after an update I cannot select a color heading for my events?! Please fix this! It’s soooo frustrating! I like the ability to colorize my events. Ughhhhh!
by kyyaaa on 2021/02/07 19:31
Make the cover of the app the date please
Used this app for years until it malfunctioned
by Ilikeswisscheese2456 on 2021/02/05 17:33
I am a hairstylist and use this calendar app to book appointments. Never had an issue until the last few months. It deleted a bunch of appointments which caused me to double book and have no idea. I have lots of angry clients now thanks to this app

Major flaw - recurring events don’t appear!
by marychristian1 on 2021/02/02 16:46
This app is unusable as I can’t see any of my recurring appointments! I switched back to Apple’s default Calendar app, and lo and behold, I can see everything. Fix this flaw pronto, Google.
Widget not Showing Tasks!!!
by Cee2331 on 2021/02/01 17:13
Everything about the app is great, layout features, etc. But two things that make this a 3 star app. One which I agree with others is that the monthly view is not scrollable. It makes counting weeks and days a chore when having to swipe and find your place. Make the monthly view scrollable. The other is the home widget does not display tasks that one creates within the app. It displays holidays but nothing that one creates. Please fix and will update to 5 stars!
What happened?
by BIE1 on 2021/02/01 15:20
Used to be a great app until a few weeks ago, now it freezes all the time, struggles to sync and not updating correctly. My desktop app on windows is working fine. Needs to be fixed in the iPhone!!!
Go To Date
by pcaballero777 on 2021/02/01 13:35
This is a good app. I wish it had the go to date feature. I would like to be able to go to a future date or a previous date without having to scroll through the calendar. It would be nice if I could just enter a date and go to it.
Pls add date to app icon
by Renata_13542 on 2021/01/31 23:45
The update I ask of google is to add the date to the app icon. By changing from the iOS default calendar to the google calendar this is a major helpful feature that is lost.
I’m Frustrated
by bluejiminssea on 2021/01/31 08:24
I loved using this app for my crazy college schedule, but then after covid happened and we all went online I stopped using it until recently and I’m honestly so frustrated with whatever is going on with this app right now. 1. I can’t color code my different reminders and events anymore which is one of the reasons I used this app. 2. A lot of the features and edits we could make on reminders and events are gone somehow so the only thing I can do when adding an event is add the time and date. 3. Speaking of adding a time to an event, it doesn’t even let me add a start or end time anymore, like what is that about? 4. I can’t add dates to dates that we’ve already passed. This one I could get over but I like adding events to previous dates to see what I did on that day. 5, and probably the most frustrating one of all, whenever I add an event and put a date in for it it literally doesn’t even put it on that date and puts it on a random day. I tried it multiple times with different dates, past and present, and it did the same thing every time. I’m really frustrated with whatever happened to this app because I honestly can’t even use this app anymore with how many issues that have developed since I stopped using and I don’t even know how to fix it or get it to work the way it’s supposed to. Maybe I can’t, and I don’t think I can, and this is a job for the developers to look into and maybe fix, but I’m just annoyed about all of the issues and these need to be fixed.
by Mapso foodies on 2021/01/29 03:08
I’d give it a minus star. Hate it. It replaced a fabulous one I had for many years that had no cutesy pictures and one a one step add and edit. Some young person needed to get silly and I have to go back to paper to see weeks and months.
Fabulous Calendar Feature! ... For Free!
by always ontime on 2021/01/28 22:01
I don’t know why I thought that the calendar feature on my IPhone would be too difficult for me to figure out how to use. However, after only a couple of “lessons,” (from the most knowledgeable, excellent IPhone expert I’ve ever known, my son, who’s currently at NCSU completing his degree in Computer Engineering 😉😂) I had gotten up to speed regarding the use of this great calendar feature! Like most people, no matter where I am on the go, I’ve got my cell phone with me. Now, this means that I’ve got my calendar with me, too... so no more making plans/appointments on a little paper calendar that you can fit it in your purse, back pocket, random piece of paper, and then having to write what you scheduled down again several times on your calendar at home, at work, and wherever else you keep a calendar... or I remember the most frustrating thing for me!! ... no more making an appointment for something like a follow up time to see your doctor or planning a lunch date, only to arrive home, check your calendar, and discover that you’d just double booked yourself... Once you were finished sweeping the floor, having gotten up most of your hair that you’d just torn out, and answered four IPhone calls, calmly explaining that the screaming that they’d just heard must have come from her TV and that she’d get that turned down right sorry to have bothered you... yes, you never really do know these days... thank you for your concern... oh, yes. I definitely would do the same for you for sure...yada, yada, yada, yada, blah, blah... blllaaahhh. ...And then I got myself calm and collected and decided which of the two that I’d double booked was going to be the most gracious to me about my need to change the plans we’d just made. Yep! I love the IPhone calendar!
Best Calendar App
by peacefulnatalie on 2021/01/28 13:46
This app helps my whole family stay. Onnexted and be “in the know” of what’s happening and when with our family.
Widget is worse I’ve seen
by tacogy3 on 2021/01/27 01:27
Widget is so ugly and no options. Looks like no time whatsoever was put into it. Come on! Still haven’t added any of these from a review I wrote years ago. They obviously don’t listen to their customers at all. Option to gray out past/previous days so it’s easier to see the current day your on. Shade the weekends a different color to stand out. Add the current date or renaming events for the day to the icon. So many other calendar apps do it, such a basic feature to add. Ability to make the month view the default view. When I tap the event in month view, take me to that event instead of the entire day.
by MulanBarbie on 2021/01/26 13:13
So annoying. Everytime I delete and edit an event, it freezes on me. This has been happening for months but I've been too lazy to complain but now it's just annoying!!!
I don't know what happened, but I hate it 😡
by Yazamina on 2021/01/26 04:38
It used to be my favorite calendar app. But they changed something, and working with this app has been so frustrating. The most basic need for adding events in different color category is nonexistent!!!!! I will stop there
Almost works?
by MateNoy33 on 2021/01/24 16:35
I may just be doing something wrong, but when i create a reminder in the future, it doesn't save to the right date. For example I saved a "Physics class" reminder for tomorrow, and set it to repeat weekly, but when I hit save the reminder is suddenly set to repeat every sunday?
Privacy Report?
by Ben Kenon on 2021/01/24 14:46
I’ve deleted all of Google’s apps until they are updated and Google complies with Apple’s privacy reports. It’s interesting that these apps used to get weekly updates and now have not been updated in TWO MONTHS. Makes me wonder what Google doesn’t want us to see.
Should be responsive
by sdkjddjsna akabamabx xishsb on 2021/01/24 01:06
Google Calendar won’t show the date on the app logo unlike the default one on apple which can tell you it immediately if you just look at app logo.
Critical Bug
by Finn the Doctor on 2021/01/23 17:41
Bugged with the inability to change the date for recurring reminders. I select Tuesday, the reminder goes to Monday. Huge failure here, I can’t rely on this app to function.
Worst app ever

Doesn’t Work
by maxmaxmax1212 on 2021/01/22 04:09
Every time I try to save a reminder, it schedules it for a different day. I give up, it will not save things to the correct day and it’s extremely frustrating.
Notifications don't work
by thatbowlerhat on 2021/01/22 03:33
I downloaded Google Calendar because I prefer the more detailed month view where I can see my events at a glance with fewer taps. I uninstalled Google Calendar because it never sent me notifications for my events. One of the most important parts of a calendar app, you'd think. I double checked, triple checked, quadruple checked that I had them turned on in settings. I turned them on for the lock screen, for the notification center, for banners. I wanted them everywhere. Never appeared. I expect better from Google. Oh well.
Outstanding App!!
by Henry123yan on 2021/01/22 00:48
This app helps plan my schedule and it helps me achieve goals! I just started using this app 10 days ago. I highly recommend this app!! It helps me organize what I have to day to day!

This Is a Amazing software that I love I used this for a while and it’s been keeeping me on track forever it’s as good as apple’s Calander but this one is super good as well. #First review
No date on app icon
by Cowbelly on 2021/01/20 22:57
With billions of dollars of money at their disposal, they can absolutely update the app to show the date in the app icon without a user needing to open the app to look for today’s date. The fact that they haven’t, after years of complaints, proves that Google just DGAF about their users. Prove us wrong Google and fix it.
Why no scroll?!
by blahlabanajsns on 2021/01/20 13:02
I can’t STAND that I can’t scroll through the calendar. It makes it so hard to count the weeks when I’m scheduling follow up appointments for people. It seems so obvious. Of course we want to scroll! We don’t want to flip through pages! Ugh. Really frustrating. I already complained through the app but never heard back from anyone.
Google Calendar APP icon
by Joshua Jerome Lee on 2021/01/19 16:19
Make the face of the APP icon correspond to the actual date. It is highly inconvenient that it displays 31 everyday of the month.
Hard to create Calenders
by Cam98nz on 2021/01/19 02:06
Why is it so hard to create a new calendar on the app. It doesn’t seem like I can do it at all which is a huge pain in the arse.
More Features & Bug
by #organizeeccentric on 2021/01/18 16:07
I like this app, but I think they should add some more features. Firstly, more colors, because I like using different colors for different kinds of events. Secondly, an undo option would help greatly, when accidentally editing an event. Thirdly, more photos for different locations that actually depict what the place looks like. Oh, also, I forgot to mention that a lot of the time I am missing classes and things because my notifications don’t appear sometimes, even though I set notifications for this app! Additionally, due to the recent update, we are unable to see upcoming events. Please change this back!!!!
Apple Watch
by skdnjsnajsndnwjjajs on 2021/01/17 03:53
They need to make this available on the Apple Watch
4.6 Is undeserved
by Nickname09776977098765 on 2021/01/16 07:42
1) The UI lags too much. 2) Goals that I put in to fulfill everyday do not appear every day, not even in the same week. 3) It was designed by incompetent idiots, because if it were actually good, when I say “Mornings” are the best time for a certain goal, I reallllllly mean MORNINGS, not afternoons, and not whenever else the app randomly wants to put it. 4) I have to move a misplaced event more than once. 5) The UI is slow. If I am opting for the most simple pattern of events and goals, which would be to have the same things at the same time every single day, CLEARLY, it should be easy for the app to put everything in at the same time I put in as for the day before. It often either takes more than an hour to do it, or it doesn’t do it at all. 6) The design, the setup, the mobility is beautiful to me. But I want to throw my phone out the window when pretty design won’t do crap. I honestly don’t know how this app has 4.6 stars when many of the most recent reviews put it at sub-par quality. Looking pretty isn’t enough Google.

It helps keeping track for what you have to do in the days of your life
by Kellz1120 on 2021/01/15 15:07
Every time an event is created it shows it twice on the calendar and I also wish you can add your own picture to the event or invitation.
Great for Cross-platform etc..
by Margin_ on 2021/01/14 19:46
Exactly what I expect from a Calendar app and integrates nicely with cross-platform usage. But why isn’t there a way to change the Calendar assignment once an event is created?! Please consider making that feature available in the near future.
Notifications aren’t working
by MrMattisonfire on 2021/01/14 18:19
I missed the first 15 minutes of my class 😂 luckily it was syllabus week. I checked the notifications and everything is set to “on” so it should work but it isn’t. Maybe a bug?
Doesn’t show full calendar widget with each schedule like one on android.
by KylcCKwon0221 on 2021/01/13 22:39
I am very disappointed with google calendar for ios. I loved how it showed all schedules on whole month calendar on Android. Not on ios.
Update widgets!
by OzarkParks on 2021/01/13 17:31
Please add an updated widget set for iOS! I’d like to see multiple days in advance as opposed to just the current day.
Reminders Aren’t Functioning Properly
by BlueRosita5 on 2021/01/13 15:33
I love the overall look of the app, the functionality, and how user friendly it is. However, I’m having issues with setting the reminders. I’m setting a reminder for a specific day but every time I save it, it doesn’t save for that day (I.e. I set a reminder to do something on Thursday but when I save the reminder it saves under Wednesday). I just need some explanation as to why that occurs. Overall, I like this app better than other calendar apps.
Widget only shows current day’s events
by appUse001 on 2021/01/13 03:11
Update - thanks for bringing back the extended week preview in the widget!!! Original - The app in itself is very nice. My only complaint is that the widget now shows only the current day’s schedule, instead of showing the upcoming week’s schedule. The previously supported extended view was a great feature, and because of this “downgrade”, I’ve now switched over to the iOS default calendar. Bring the previous view back!
Sad widget
by Ejbleen on 2021/01/12 14:45
No problem with the app, but the widget is sad. Compare it to the native Apple calendar widget - is it really so hard for Google to do something similar?
I wish..
by Marilou2020 on 2021/01/11 18:02
I wish we could add picture on the event. In my case a picture of the dog ( I am the owner of a mobile dog groomer business). This calendar doesn't have anything different from the Apple calendar.
Widget doesn’t work
by SavySabi on 2021/01/11 00:33
Widget doesn’t display events made by goal, tasks, or reminders.
Good except for repeating events
by drmacker on 2021/01/08 00:10
Basic functions in this calendar work well, but the repeating events function has worked inconsistently for as long as I have used it. Sometimes it works for awhile, then suddenly, without my changing anything, it’s all screwed up and I am forced to delete the event and start over again.
by 123456789Rc11 on 2021/01/07 19:21
If you have more than 10 reminders and you want to delate them you have to go one by one and that’s so annoying. The reminder doesn’t go to the day you put it, I was putting a reminder for December 28 and the reminder was set up for January 4 and I change to December 28 but it put it again to January 4, so annoying. Please help. I prefer to use some papers as a reminder, works better; using this app just give problems. The reminders disappear, I have a daily schedule and for one moment to the other is just not there anymore so annoying. Thanks for trying to make a good app but it just not work right for me.
Poor widget design
by Kobayashi on 2021/01/05 21:59
Medium widget won’t display more than 1 all day event but there is plenty of space for that and even upcoming events would be possible.
Need Tasks support
by Happybhatia on 2021/01/05 18:10
I think Tasks is the only major improvement of a Google Calendar over the default Apple Calendar. However it’s only a feature in the web app, not the iOS app- which is a shame!
App is great, except...
by Naty1209 on 2021/01/05 13:23
This app works great to keep me and my appointments on track. I couldn’t function without my calendar. The only minor complaint I have, which can be easily fixed, is that the app icon doesn’t show the current date. The Apple standard calendar app reflects the current date and this one doesn’t. Would be a nice feature to add.
Opposite of productivity.
by kingxxjun on 2021/01/04 20:08
Since they like taking down my reviews I'll do this again. This app does the opposite of enhancing productivity. Does the opposite as it always requires restarting to get basic things done (like editing text in an event). Would be quicker just to right things down
This app is broken
by app so bad i made an account on 2021/01/04 05:57
So many times when you schedule reminders on certain days, it just completely changes when you save it into another day. Extremely frustrating.. major issues with the apps software
Better than apple’s calendar
by Bellabean892 on 2021/01/03 02:14
I recommend this for work and personal use!
Reminders don’t work
by Anaxkolasi on 2021/01/02 22:22
All of a sudden I can’t add a recurring reminder. I set a reminder for Jan 3 repeating every two weeks and it switches it to Jan 9. Not even the same day of the week. Over and over until I gave up and am now writing this review.
Good app
by JMNPC on 2021/01/02 05:15
Color coding is much better than Apple calendar, and whole layout is easier to see at a glance than Apple. Only question, is it /will it be possible to search back more than a year? That’s a feature I often miss in Apple calendar, and am forced to use the online full version of Google calendar to find past events. If it’s not possible with the Google calendar app, I’ll probably just uninstall it.
Notifications don't work
by Huddraww on 2020/12/31 20:16
Even with settings on properly
by justaan on 2020/12/31 20:16
The iPhone and the actual website have a great source for tasks and all these new features. The iPad app does not have these. Please please add them it’s a huge game changer!!
by Neponosema on 2020/12/31 08:46
Google does fabulous, magical things. But on your calendar why can’t you change it on the little logo that when it is October 1 to show a number “1” ? And when it is October 2 why can’t you show a number “2”? And when it is October 3 why can’t you show a number “3” ? Why does it always have to say 31? For your information on my iPhone it comes with a calendar app and I keep that app just to know the date sometimes at a quick glance. I wish I could delete it, but then I have to dig into my phone to find out what the date is. I guess Google isn’t the fabulous magical company that I always thought it was.
I like this but letters have become to small
by LWS14* on 2020/12/29 21:11
I’ve used this calendar for a long time and loved all its benefits and the way I could see things and sync w my husbands calendar. However, all of a sudden the letters are so so tiny and small that it can hardly be read . It bothers me so. I do not want to change calendars but I may have to. Please fix this and go back to the way it looked before.
What happen?
by Kaylakay92 on 2020/12/29 01:35
At first I was able to click links and add events to the calendar. Now it won't allow me to. I have to do it from my laptop. Very disappointed. Working in Real Estate, it is more convenient for me to add events on the spot, having to remember to when I get to my laptop is frustrating. Please fix.
Useless. Cannot create new calendar from app
by 363746262:8;8 on 2020/12/27 19:44
The app is very limited. Most of the features are only usable from a desktop browser. For instance, you cannot create a new calendar from the app.
Can’t add invited emails?
by yosunc on 2020/12/27 19:18

Google Calendar is absolutely great and I totally recommend it. I have all sorts of things on there and it helps me remember stuff which is awesome. Even a reminder to get on school zoom every day, lol. Thanks Google this is a great app!
All good but the icon
by GLH123 on 2020/12/23 15:01
Recently switched from using the native Apple calendar to the Google calendar app as my calendars are all on Google. While generally I like it better, the one thing that I miss that surprised me is that the Apple calendar icon shows the actual date whereas the Google calendar icon always shows 31st. I like being able to glance at it and see what date it is. I didn’t even realize I did that until I found I couldn’t with this app.
1 problem
by EToTheE123 on 2020/12/23 04:52
I switched over to Google Calendar because they added a widget, but it only lets me show one event!! If I do more than one all day event, it doesn’t display the event name, it just says ‘2 all day entries’. If you could change it so it can display some of the actual event names that would Be wonderful, and maybe make the larger widget? Then I will switch all the way to Google Calendar
by Zach5278833652 on 2020/12/23 01:05
I think that the goal setting was a really neat feature. It doesn’t seem to show your progress in the circles of how many goals you had completed for the week. Other than that, the app works great!
1024 Character Limit!
by davidthepilot on 2020/12/22 21:06
I have reported this weekly since January 23, 2020 and it’s still unresolved. The iOS version of Google Calendar has a 1024 character limit while creating “Reminders” and "Events". Once the 1024 character limit is reached, no additional characters can be added. Additionally, if a text selection contains 1024 or greater characters is copied, it will not paste into the text box that says "Remind me to..." or "Enter title". The Android Google Calendar version does NOT have a character limit. Can the iOS version of Google Calendar be updated so that it does not have a 1024 character limit?
Notification no longer work
by Gamefreak_ on 2020/12/21 23:31
I don’t get alerts for anything I’ve set a reminder on. I’m not the only one having this issue either.
by CHRISONDA on 2020/12/21 18:46
Wish it had current date on app icon and along with event, reminders, and goals - a note optional or other option and more color options to choose from. Otherwise, just brilliant!!! Great to use for multiple family members.
It’s not the 31st every day!
by Renewed inspiration on 2020/12/21 09:03
Seriously, It’s almost 2021 and Google can’t figure how to get today’s date (and day) on the calendar app icon? Even Apple has it working! Love it otherwise. Will reset rating to 5, once G fixes it!
Bottom half broken
by trudreamer88 on 2020/12/21 05:18
Bottom half of the app doesn’t even work. If I can’t scroll to bring it to the top half than I can’t click it.
by Connor O'Rourke on 2020/12/20 06:15
The app is great but could they make it where the app icon displays the current date?
Terrible since November 2020
by Jeanjacket on 2020/12/19 06:27
On iPhone XS. App constantly needs to be terminated and restarted because it will stop allowing users to type.
by Starman3207 on 2020/12/18 12:19
I love how the system works but I wish there was an option in settings where completed reminders automatically delete there self
Email glitch
by Npatey4 on 2020/12/17 20:40
Would have been 5 stars but there is currently a glitch when inviting others to the event. I send an invite to an event. The email that is received says an incorrect time in the subject and the correct time on the event.
by IV2827 on 2020/12/17 10:24
This app has not only helped keep my life organized, but my family’s as well. Having the ability to share my calendar with multiple family members and being able to see their calendars as well is a live saver. The way the events are layer out is perfect! My only want is to be able to see all of my events on the new Home Screen widget. I don’t like how it displays one event and tells me that there is more. I would like to just be able to see them all.
by ñelld on 2020/12/17 00:01
Do not get this i repeat i was hacked with all my stuff including my zoom accout link and more i repeat do not get
I can keep up.

My life has completely changed because this app is a good way to keep check of your self.
by Mrs. NayNay on 2018/05/06 16:05
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
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.
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'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. 🙂
Love this app except for the icon
by Redneckbassin' on 2020/11/02 10:38
If Google would update the app icon to actually show the day of the month and change with the days like Apple’s calendar app does then they would have the better of the two apps. I much prefer the look and feel and color customization options of Google Calendar when in app, but the icon itself simply shows a never changing 31 instead of the actual date. This is a very small gripe, I know, and even that would be ok if they would update it and make a widget available for the Home Screen instead of only being available in the Today view. Again, minor complaints. For now I keep the widget in the Today view and swipe right to see my schedule at a quick glance, and continue to keep the Apple calendar icon on my Home Screen for a quick view of the day and date without the need to swipe.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Worst icon on earth
by ColePerrine on 2020/10/24 05:16
Normally not that big of a complainer when it comes to icons. They’re just icons, doesn’t speak for the app. But when I say the new app icon is the WORST abomination to ever disgrace app design in the history of digital art, I am taking it lightly. My Home Screen has become a checkerboard of unoriginal, indistinguishable Google services over the last week and I’ve put up with it. Until now. I cannot look at my apps again without my eyes being drawn directly to this disgusting shape. Might have to replace it with the apple calendar, which I really don’t want to do but it’s that bad. Who greenlit this? There were so many ways you could have taken the four color formula to the calendar icon without making it look like my first adobe illustrator project. It doesn’t even look like a calendar sheet, which is what I assume you were going for. Why did you do this??? I want answers.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Couldn't live without
by Lykceb on 2021/02/22 21:14
Absolutely love this app! I do with there were some features added to the app that are available on the desktop, such as colors mimicking desktop web version more precisely (on desktop I have a calendar colored white with black text but it shows up gray on the app and I'm not a fan of that). Also I would love to be able to choose custom colors on the app, and not always have to dig out my computer if I'm setting up a new calendar or changing colors around. Diming past events like desktop would be nice as well Some other features that would be nice is Setting default calendar to add events to and Lastly, I would love to be able to set default views. I'm not a fan of the schedule view. I would prefer to use month and it go to the day view when I click on the day.
by awakenwp on 2019/12/06 08:11
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.
Great planner
by Rack Town on 2019/11/16 18:15
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.
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't like that you can'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'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.
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.
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.
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.
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
by ok you yes you reader on 2020/06/17 19:14
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......
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.
Poor Widget Design
by Jman46890 on 2020/12/16 06:36
The old widget was very informative, showing up to 9 events. The large size allowed to see events over multiple days, or at least all the events in the current day. The new widget is only available in small and medium, showing only 2 events. If there are multiple all day events, it only says the number of all day events, and gives no indication as to what they are. The huge decrease in available information (9 to 2) makes the widget unusable. The fact that other google suite apps have large widgets but the google calendar is only available in small and medium doesn’t make any sense. I love the app, the dark mode is great, but the lack of usable widget functionality is a deal breaker. A large size needs to be added, as it’s a very doable feature. Once it’s added the app will return to its 5 start status.
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)
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.
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.
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.
