Awesome, just update the number on closed app!
by Jk6.8185 on 2019/09/16 13:20
Love google calendar, easy to use, lots of great features. Something that would be greatly appreciated is if the calendar date on the closed app remained updated as opposed to always displaying the number 31. Similar to apple calendar, their date changes everyday. So all I have to do is glance at the closed app, without opening it, to remind me of the date. It would be an amazing feature to have the current date displayed on the closed app.
App has worked great but the month image keeps disappearing
by Snesnesnesne on 2019/09/16 03:52
The month image keeps disappearing and it’s making me sad, I want to see the aesthetic art in the background but it’s just blank. Please fix this. I think changing which day is the start of the week may have something to do with it.
The widget change
by flowergirl567321 on 2019/09/15 16:33
If you have an Apple phone the widget now only shows one day. I’ve checked you can’t change it. Please tell me this is going back to the way it was because I hate this.
iOS app and website not syncing
by oaj1977 on 2019/09/14 22:07
I’ve tried everything (it seems) but I’ve noticed in the past several days that events I add to either the iOS app or the desktop web version aren’t syncing to the other platform.
Does not have dark theme
by K.D.C on 2019/09/14 14:47
Does not have dark theme
Features lacking
by Neesy113 on 2019/09/13 23:30
The app does not have 2 functions that the desktop version has: 1) Change the calendar that the event is assigned to. 2) Share specific calendars with people.
Side menu not opening
by Gillian L. on 2019/09/13 18:07
I love the Google Calendar app, but just today it’s started acting up: the side menu bar isn’t opening. I’ve closed and reopened the app several times, but to no avail
The app no longer pulls up google maps...
by Pierregalant on 2019/09/12 18:02
When tapping on the address on the calendar. Instead it sends me to safari which pulls up the web page google maps. To add insult to injury, that page then tells me I’m missing out for not using the google maps app! Only when I tap on that message does the Google maps app gets activated . This is extremely irritating. Google please fix it. Or you’re going to miss out on a bunch of stars.
Counter intuitive
by Splicer17 on 2019/09/12 14:25
When selecting a date, the small dots that indicate a scheduled event (in the month view) DISAPPEAR for that day. It’s easy to think you have no scheduled event unless you scroll down to view ALL the hours in that day. It lags you to believe there is nothing scheduled for that day.
Busy Family Sanity Saver - Mobile app needs to match web function
by klorfzore18 on 2019/09/12 13:52
I've been using Google calendar for years...YEARS. It's awesome. We have about 20 different calendars to keep up with between our family, work, activities, etc. I'd love to give this app 5 stars but there is a couple of things that need to be added: * Desktop calendar you can choose which days to repeat. I.e. Weekdays (Monday - Friday), specific days. You can not easily do this from the repeat option in the app. Only all or none. You have to log into the desktop version to edit or create repeated events. * Desktop computer you can easily update which calendar the event was created on if there was a mistake of adding an event to the originally created event. In the app, you're only able to edit the "default color." You have to log into the desktop version to edit the original event and then are able to change the calendar to add the event. * There is a workaround to share the colors, giving full rights to edit, delete, etc every event. But it would be nice to be able to add "Family Share" like most of the apps on the market to share every imported calendar, added calendars, etc. It would be great to be able to add any calendar, event (in the color required) automatically import into EVERYONE that needs to have the specific calendar. Having to log in to everyone's account to import from URLs, change colors, etc is tedious and time-consuming. However, this is vital to making sure everyone in our family knows where we're supposed to be.
Hold up
by RedPandasAreLit on 2019/09/12 04:03
I got this app to help me for one thing, google classroom. It made it very complicated and very hard to understand. I do see they put a lot of effort into this which i respect, but why can’t their be a google calendar for classroom like on the computer without this?
No date on the icon
by Nenoalslamat on 2019/09/12 03:51
The icon must show the exact date!!!!!
Good but need:
by rsozdance on 2019/09/11 07:39
1- it needs to let your change events to different calendars; 2- add goals to a another calendar not the event default calendar 3- add a goal as a reminder for example take supplements goal 4- add all day long goals example don’t use a phone all day twice a month 5- ability to reschedule an event you created for a new free time; like I couldn’t meet my mom find me a new time Thanks🌸
Lack of mobile task integration decrease the products value
by CromwellAdventure.com on 2019/09/10 19:12
I am an avid apple user, however I find that google desktop calendar provides better functionality with the inclusion of task reminders into the calendar itself. I was extremely disappointed when the iOS mobile google calendar was downloaded and did not integrate my task list into my calendar. For this very reason, I will not be using google calendar until it is integrated. Having something integrated via desktop but not mobile makes absolutely no sense in such a mobile connected society.
Thank you
by Mehrsaa on 2019/09/10 13:47
Dear google thank you for all of you apps. Please add persian calendar for us
Not helpful
by emjay5200 on 2019/09/10 13:46
Most of the time I have to go to my computer to use the web version of Google calendar because the app does not have even half of the features of google calendar’s web version. And why can’t I pick custom illustrations? If you want to share a calendar in this app... you can’t. If you want to see shared calendars, you can’t. It’s skimmed down to be simple looking which is nice... but actually trying to schedule things with people using this app is a dead end. It’s really just a clean way to view your calendar.
Icon Annoyance
by airexasaurus on 2019/09/10 04:23
So far my only gripe is the icon showing “31.” Can’t stand it. Change it to a simple calendar icon without a date and I will rate the app as a 4 star.
Incompatible
by Pip12398073 on 2019/09/10 03:35
The latest update is incompatible with my iPad. Disappointing.
Good, Should Do More
by TonyTime Tech on 2019/09/09 23:36
1) More colors; would they be easy to add? At least add *primary colors*, or colors closer to primaries. Burnt orange? Ugh. Unappealing. Just ask around. 2) Why aren’t *phases of the moon* addable in the app-?! Please?? 3) Can the Google Calendar icon, show the actual date everyday, instead of 31? Will Apple allow this? If not, “Apple, please allow this!” = )
Fix the widget!
by animalxstyle on 2019/09/09 05:48
It only shows today’s events. Also the “show more” option is gone. Please fix this.
Bugged when using Personal Hotspot.
by SUPER7X on 2019/09/09 03:21
As title says, when I use my Personal Hotspot, the menu bugs out and I can’t open it, meaning I’m stuck in the view I’m currently in. Would be 5 stars if this was fixed.

by 111lyx on 2019/09/09 00:19
PLEASE FIX THE WIDGET
New version has many bugs
by Acjdgman on 2019/09/08 22:13
1. They changed the app to not cache any of the meetings you have, and takes many seconds to fetch the interviews. 2. They changed the action buttons to not eagerly do anything, so you tap buttons and it seems like nothing happened, and either nothing happens or it happens later. You have to use to desktop browser to check it! So slow!!!
Current Date on Icon??
by TB Hart on 2019/09/08 14:02
Great app — does everything I’d expect in a calendar app. I actually switched from iOS’s calendar app to this b/c I liked it more. My only recommendation is to add functionality so it shows the actual day/date on the icon itself. This feature is something I used often with the iOS app. Thanks!
No google tasks integration
by ZacharyLG on 2019/09/08 06:15
Unlike calendar in the browser, there is no google tasks integration.
Crap
by hxidif on 2019/09/07 18:35
Crap
Constantly crashes
by Cms8448 on 2019/09/07 14:57
For the past several months, through several updates, this app continues to crash anytime I open it. I have to use the desktop version to do anything. I have an iPhone XR so it should be compatible... not sure what the issue is!
Update date on App icon
by Peileo on 2019/09/06 11:21
My only complaint about the app is the static ‘31’ that’s on the app icon. I’d like to see it auto change to today’s date.
Tasks
by IsabelLast on 2019/09/05 23:52
Please fix the issue that tasks only show up on a desktop. The app on my phone doesn’t allow me to see my tasks. Other than that, a great app
It's good
by Just A Person From Mars on 2019/09/05 15:06
It's good, but it lacks the feature to see shared calendars. I expected to see my significant others schedule so we could coordinate dates together but this app lacks that function.
What happened to my entries
by Mellow_J on 2019/09/05 05:17
I’ve been using google calendar for years now, but I noticed that my entries only go back to July 2018? Everything before that is erased. Not cool! Everything should stay on our calendars and not be purged unless we request it.
iOS app stopped working in August
by grlgng on 2019/09/05 00:38
Calendar works fine on computers, but for me and a few of my coworkers, it doesn’t show most events/schedules on our cell apps. Apps & iOS are both up to date. PLEASE FIX THIS. We need it for work!!!
THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE
by Chris C. Martinez on 2019/09/04 21:34
I love organizing my life, especially with an app that holds everything. A few months ago I was looking to find another calendar app and I saw a YouTube tutorial on how to use Google Calendar to the highest capability. I do wish that you were allowed to edit an event and change the calendar they are on in the app. The website already has that feature but a lot of my organizing is on the go.
Icon
by HDsMom on 2019/09/04 18:10
Please make the app icon reflect the current date so you can see the date at a glance! Then it will be a 5 star app.
Favorite calendar but.....
by Cee_Nicole on 2019/09/03 13:36
I LOVE LOVE this calendar but I do wish there were more color choices
Widget Issue
by Skittles 234 on 2019/09/03 01:12
I love this app but since I updated the app the widget doesn’t work right with my iPhone anymore. It only shows today and not tomorrow and that’s pretty annoying. I want to be able to see what tomorrow has too. Can you please fix the issue with the iPhone widget?
Please fix!
by Nola Alon on 2019/09/02 19:27
I hate to give this app one star because I actually LOVE it. It helps my husband and I stay organized with synchronized schedules. However, the app now crashes whenever I open it. Very disappointed. I’ve contacted Google and they transfer me to Apple. I contacted Apple and then they transferred me to Google. Please help!
Family Calendar
by RobertP888 on 2019/09/02 13:58
For whatever reason, I now view my family’s calendar and every time I turn it off, it becomes re-enabled
Great app, one reasonable request
by Twins fan11 on 2019/09/01 20:53
I’m sure this is all falling on deaf ears as this request will go nowhere, however. I love the app...any chance you could put the current date number on the app? Currently the app has a 31 on there...could that change with the date...Example- on July 4th it shows a 4. I don’t even need it to show 7/4, just a 4 would be cool. More color options would be nice too.
Natural language input?
by Nsahoo on 2019/09/01 10:20
Web version used to have it once. Is it possible to bring it into the app and web version again? The rest is quite good.
Settings
by MoxiRowan on 2019/08/30 21:38
I love the ap and sharing the calendar with my husband so can both see what the other has scheduled but I wish the ap had the right date showing when it’s closed on phone screen - it just shows the 31. Not helpful at all if I’m in a hurry - I have to open the ap to be sure of the date. That’s all I’d fix.
Finally: Bug Fixed!
by AliceDanYuqinPeng on 2019/08/30 13:17
There was a long time: Google Calendar: 1. Loaded nothing 2. Crashed ALL The Time 3. Took forever to load things Now, 1. It’s still a little slow. 2. But, it’s working at least!
Good but not great
by @)$&(/:*^%#! on 2019/08/30 12:32
There is no possible way to see a colleagues calendar that isn’t already saved on the side bar from your desktop settings. I have to get my laptop out if I need to see a colleagues schedule that isn’t saved to set a meeting. It would be a lot more convenient if I could search the email to see the calendar.
No Task for Mobile App!
by Jj132213568 on 2019/08/30 04:27
Please make tasks visible in mobile App, like they are on Desktop!
Widget
by arm4489 on 2019/08/29 15:15
I really liked when I could see the next 10 things (including the next day!) in the iPhone widget. Now it’s only the current day. Please revert or give options!!! Otherwise great.
Decent
by Zach37473772 on 2019/08/28 19:14
I think it’s overall quite good, although it’s missing some things that I would like to see. First of all, it doesn’t have drag and drop to change the time. I’m not able to move events around. This functionality should be added. Also, I can’t do specific times. It would be nice if I could choose exact times for events.
Tweak
by Tutti2142 on 2019/08/28 18:13
Would love the ability to see the day on the face of the app like how Apple Calendar does.
Icon isn’t date!
by <slunky> on 2019/08/28 03:39
Great app, but...come on Google. You can train AI and organize the world’s information but you can’t make the icon change on the day of the week? It’s the little things, Google.
Date on app
by hdhdh665 on 2019/08/27 21:29
I’d give this five stars if the date on the app reflected the current date when you are looking from your home screen (like the default iPhone calendar app).
Do you enjoy spam?
by JeremiahBui on 2019/08/27 21:06
No not the salty meat that taste great with eggs and rice. Spam from strange mysterious people who promise free iPhones. Your calendar will be FILLED WITH IT. It’s fantastic. It’s all I ever wanted.
Needs to include ‘Google Tasks’
by PabloDaPotato-Yann on 2019/08/27 17:54
This is a great app, but what I don’t like is that Google Tasks that have a deadline don’t pop up in the calendar. On the online version this does work, but on the iOS version it doesn’t show. Otherwise this is excellent.
Good... but
by geauxblue on 2019/08/26 23:44
I really do like the functionality, look, and feel of this app. It’s great in a LOT of ways... but I’m repeatedly annoyed with the options for repeating events. Why is there not an option to repeat weekdays only or even repeat on specific days? I hate scheduling something on the go and also having to remember to correct it later on my computer.
Widget
by Lukanater on 2019/08/26 17:58
The widget doesn’t show the next day and it’s literally the only thing I use so there’s no point of even using this app at this point
Wish I could uninstall the most recent update - widget has changed
by maxz313 on 2019/08/26 08:53
I love this app but I’ve noticed a change with the most recent update that has really taken away from this app’s functionality. The widget now only shows events for the current day when I click “show more”, whereas before it would show a set number of events with some going into the next day. Not sure if it’s an intentional change or a bug, but either way I would love for it to be changed back. Some days only have one event scheduled and that’s all that will show. It’s so helpful to see the next 6 or so events planned bc I could have one event today and then a ton tomorrow that I need to prepare for and keep in mind! If I could go back and not update this app so it stayed like before, I would do it in a heartbeat. TL;DR - widget now only shows today’s events, even when you click “show more”. Before it showed more, going into tomorrow if there was space, and that was much better and more helpful.
Daily Date page
by Rockaway1 on 2019/08/26 02:43
Why is the app page always on the 31st???? It should be on the day I’m looking at it. The date page should change daily to reflect the current day! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!!
Great (aside from notification issues)!
by Nilti19 on 2019/08/26 01:49
I enjoy the organization of this app but continue to experience inconsistency with the notifications. I’ve tried everything I can think of, but nothing has fixed the issue. Other than this, I enjoy how thorough the app is.
Thumbs down
by Wekkin on 2019/08/25 17:44
If I could give this app less than one star, I would. I’ve been using this app for years with no problems, yet today, I open the app and all my appointments, reminders, schedules, everything was gone. All of my sons’ scheduled things and appointments too. I tried to re-link my e-mail and re-set it up and nothing was recovered. Everything is lost. Important things are lost. I would advise anyone looking for a calendar app to keep looking because this one is obviously not reliable enough!
A blessing
by Vee. x on 2019/08/23 21:40
I never review apps but this app has been such a life saver. I transitioned from a paper calendar to Google Calendar because it became frustrating not being home and knowing I was forgetting an important event. I Iove the fact that we can color code events and add address to them.
Almost!
by Lucus9000 on 2019/08/23 19:24
I feel like google calendar should stay as my main app for scheduling my daily life but there is only one thing that is frustrating to get around with. When dealing with classes that appear more than once a week I would like to have the option to put on that single event that I have the same class repeating on certain days. The problem is that when you put for example classes on Monday and Wednesday it for some reason puts them on Sunday and Tuesday. I hope google sees this review and fixes it because I know it’s a minor issue but for those who don’t want to deal with typing the same event multiple times for a week it gets frustrating.
Not Syncing😱
by cheryl's opinion on 2019/08/23 16:37
I am trying to sync the calendars on iPad and iPhone. My iPad is fine. The phone isn’t. I’ve tried several steps under trouble shooting including deleting off phone. But to no avail. I’m not a G admin so I can’t call anyone. This is so frustrating. Ready to delete them off. I know it’s free...but I expected them to work as described.
Love it! Could you add this, by chance??
by Dpnpop on 2019/08/23 15:45
I’d love a change that would allow me to see more of my added appointments per day -on the monthly view. When they are hidden, It’s a hassle to click and see them; and I always prefer the monthly glance. Is this possible???? Also - Is it possible that the Calendar icon (that always say 31) could actually change daily to the “today’s date?” That would really top it off!! Thanks for considering!
Date
by googleliebmanxow on 2019/08/23 14:06
I love Google Calendar, but I really wish it said the date on the outside of the app like the apple calendar app does. I hate that I have to go into the app to see the date because I was an apple calendar girl before and got used to just being able to look at that. Now I’m always like “it’s the 31???” Haha
Time Zone Nightmare
by JamminBobber on 2019/08/21 23:53
The app changed the times of all of my events when I moved time zones! Perhaps somewhat low storage space on the phone contributed to this, but with more than a GB of space it should be able to handle such a small change. I shouldn’t have to switch to my former time zone to see the correct time for my events. It won’t even tell me which time zone I was in when I created each event. Could possibly see this but ruining people’s careers...
Thank you!
by maluchs on 2019/08/21 12:55
Thank you for making a monthly view! I haven’t used this app for years only because of that reason so thank you for finally making a monthly view! Love it!
Won’t sync with desktop
by ReptarRidesAgain on 2019/08/21 12:06
From last weeks update; it won’t sync with my laptop, I have tried... -triple checking that I’m on the right email and calendar -closing and reopening the app -logging out and logging back in -restarting my phone -deleting and redone loading the app It’s still not syncing, which makes it not very useful at the moment. Please fix, and thanks so much for providing such a great app for free.
Make the date change on the app
by diiebsbs on 2019/08/21 02:53
Make the date change on the app like apple calendar so I can use it on my phone to check the date
Wish the date would change on the app icon
by cjmvdm on 2019/08/20 23:40
I like the app, but wish the date would change on the app icon. The iPhone calendar app changes the date on the icon without having to open the app. It’s nice if you just need to look at your phone quickly for the date.
Could easily be 5 stars
by nfneiwjd on 2019/08/20 17:05
In the past google calendar would get a 5 star but very disappointed the widget is not working to show events for today and tomorrow. Could you also update app to show exact date and not always the 31st.
Alarm calendar
by Tonytood on 2019/08/20 09:04
The challenge is, the reminders just pop up once with one ring and then Vanish. It is easy for any one to skip it though you set a longer ring tone. It has to ring continuously like an alarm or phone call untill we respond! Can we do that? Need respond answer.
DOES NOT SYNC WITH TASKS APP
by Rachtikiss on 2019/08/20 06:15
Why does the app not sync with my tasks the same way it does on the computer?? Without that feature, this app is just another organizer. Very disappointed
Battery drain on new version
by 10xFRDM on 2019/08/19 18:46
This new version is draining my battery. Used the app for 20min and it sucked 39% of my battery on a new iPad. Sheesh, get this bug squashed fast!
Widget shows only today
by AparaV on 2019/08/19 14:46
Earlier, the widget used to show today and tomorrow. This was very useful. Now, it’s showing only today’s schedule. Can you bring back the today+tomorrow feature?
bugs
by Lauren N. Smith IRok-Z on 2019/08/18 14:15
won’t let me use the “custom” option to select multiple dates out of the week for an event to be on. makes the app inconvenient + time consuming, not to mention it happened even after I updated . also won’t show events on my laptop even though it’s the same account. this once worked so I don’t understand why it won’t now. please fix
It's not bad
by ssssaaaakkkk on 2019/08/17 02:20
It's a decent calendar. My only issue is that you can't prioritize events so that the most important event is on top of the list.
Poor info transfer
by karens iPhone510 on 2019/08/16 23:32
Cruises booked came through as flights, which is confusing when we also book flights often. Emails from a hotel stay came in for the whole week, when we were only staying one night, then attending a week long cruising event. For us, the info was inaccurate and confusing. Deleted app. There was no way to tap and edit wording.
Amazing
by jjibyggjhr on 2019/08/16 18:15
If your life is crazy and hectic then you will love this app
Buggy
by Duuuude1484256 on 2019/08/16 13:01
I like that they made this but it’s very buggy. Whenever I tap on Saturday it takes me to the previous Sunday which resulted in me just spending 15 minutes planning this weekend only to realize it was all going into last weekend.
Icon indicator?
by trumpspoolboy on 2019/08/16 12:51
Where is the switch to turn on the icon indicator. You know the icon that says March 31 etc. It’s the only reason why I don’t get rid of Apple calendar. It’s the deal breaker in my opinion. No icon switch I ditch.
Pls change the date!
by Darryasha on 2019/08/15 19:06
Please, please, change the app icon to reflect the current date! This is a small thing but it’s the only thing that prevents me from using this app 100%
Date
by Phil Frakes on 2019/08/14 21:45
Please have the date change hate how it always shows the 31st have it change by day I’m tired of using the apple app
Icon STILL doesn’t show today’s date?
by DHitrys on 2019/08/14 00:47
Hey Google: I can introduce you to developers who know how to update the app icon to show today’s date. Some even figured out how to badge them with today’s date.
Great App, but one suggestion
by Bnazzy on 2019/08/13 22:25
Google calendar works great and instantly syncs across my devices with several google accounts. It’s a very elegant interface, great for efficiency. My one suggestion: if you could, please change the app icon so that it reflects the current date. That’s the only thing that Apple Calendar does better than Google Calendar.
TOO ADDICTING!😭😅😈

My life saver
by pieces rule on 2019/08/13 12:47
I use my calendar every day and with Google, it goes to all my other electronics so I get my reminders. I use the weekly view so I can see appointments that I have and projects scheduled to do. I can’t believe as a person in my 50’s have to remind the younger generation to use it now there’s no excuses!!
Widget Help!!
by jvera05 on 2019/08/13 02:43
I really like google calendar but lately the widget that you can view when your phone is locked isn't working. That was my favorite part, and the most useful addition, of using google calendars on my phone but now it's not working.

Auto suggestions and prediction now broken
by bigPixel on 2019/08/13 00:41
One of the major advantages of the app was that it would auto complete or use predictive suggestions for events based on previous entries. That's been broken recently so the app is at this point no better than the built in ios calendar.

To Do List

Really need to add To Do List capabilities to calendar!!!!!
Planning future events.
by Smarter than the average user. on 2019/08/12 16:22
Google calendar is a great organization tool. But creating future events and reminders would be much easier if the app had a ‘go to’ date function especially for events more than a year away.

Disappointing new “feature”
by DMorrisPE on 2019/08/12 15:20
We are big fans of Google products, but I recently discovered that Google Calendar is deleting anything that is more than 3 years old. Big Deal, you say, so what? Why do you need old stuff? We have health issues, some minor and some very major, Big League important. Google used to have a product called Google Health that was used to compile a history of your illnesses, surgeries, treatments, prescriptions, etc. They apparently couldn’t find a way to monetize it, so, Poof, it went away, and they sloughed everybody off to join Microsoft Health Vault. It, too, has gone away. Google Calendar is where we turned next to keep track of our appointments, decisions, and by using the Notes portion of the Event, we can add questions to be asked of our doctors and record their answers, when to refill medicines. By keeping track of ALL of our health visits, we had documentation for our tax filings. So, if you need something only for Tomorrow, use Google Calendar. If you want to review past events, then Calendar is not the tool you need.

Search limitations
by nbjlsl on 2019/08/12 14:29
Not sure how far back the search looks, but it would be nice if it looked farther back. Sometimes when I search it does not find an item on the calendar on the app, so I open the calendar in safari to find it with no problem. Also, sometimes while trying to add a location on an item that I am adding does not find it, so again I go to safari and it works on the calendar there.
Was, now isn’t
by StDuroch on 2019/08/12 13:19
Google Calendar used to be an awesome app, a 5 Star app. In recent months it has many problems, including frequently lost data as well as a severe degradation of the Search function. I no longer recommend Google Calendar.
Good
by sandrew3t on 2019/08/12 13:10
This has been a great shared calendar that I have used to schedule appointments and everyone that needs to, can see where each other is scheduled to be. Unfortunately, I just have not been able to figure out how to search through previous year appointments

I love it! My favorite part is how you can invite others to events!
Adulting!
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.
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.
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!
I love this app (normally...)
by Seanie_Gee on 2018/05/01 03:35
Hey Google. My friends... Long time listener, first time caller. I LOVE my Google apps (generally) and have used Google Calendar as long as it has been available on Apple devices. However, since Apple released their atrocious IOS 11 and every subsequent horrible update, Google Calendar has been less than impressive. I can hardly schedule any personal or business events or meetings with my iPhone or my iPad (which has replaced my personal and business computer). There are SERIOUS lags on the app, to the point where lately I have hardly been able to functionally use it. I do really love that my travel emails and other event emails often sync right from my Gmail into my calendar. I love that I can send event links to family, colleagues, and customers for them to add to their digital calendars. I REALLY LOVE GOOGLE CALENDAR! Please fix it! I hope that you are able to resolve these issues and get Google Calendar working well again so I don’t have to move all of my info over to another calendar of some kind. Thanks. P.S. I literally just uploaded the newest update for the apps, and it still hasn’t solved any issues I’ve been facing.
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.
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!!
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. 🙂
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.
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.
Not quite ready for prime time
by Supuflorous 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.
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.
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!
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 up...it’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.
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.
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.
Wish I could uninstall the most recent update - widget has changed

I love this app but I’ve noticed a change with the most recent update that has really taken away from this app’s functionality. The widget now only shows events for the current day when I click “show more”, whereas before it would show a set number of events with some going into the next day. Not sure if it’s an intentional change or a bug, but either way I would love for it to be changed back. Some days only have one event scheduled and that’s all that will show. It’s so helpful to see the next 6 or so events planned bc I could have one event today and then a ton tomorrow that I need to prepare for and keep in mind! If I could go back and not update this app so it stayed like before, I would do it in a heartbeat. TL;DR - widget now only shows today’s events, even when you click “show more”. Before it showed more, going into tomorrow if there was space, and that was much better and more helpful.
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.
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
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.
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.
Add More Colors
by Lupe0604 on 2019/03/12 23:41
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.
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.
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.
🤩
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!
My suggestions
by Azer VII on 2019/05/06 03:11
Overall, it I great app and easy to use. In goals, it would be great, if we had more options for measuring units. For example, now we can choose how many times we want to read or swim. But wouldn’t be great, if we had options like how many meters we want to swim or how much time we want to read weekly. More advanced reminders would be great. I usually use reminders as my to do list and often find myself with bunch of uncompleted tasks at the end of the week. There should some way to select reminders and change times for them. Or to have planned tasks list where we can keep our postponed or delayed reminders
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.
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 event...it doesn’t show up. Move an event...it 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.
Love
by Jordan Land on 2019/08/01 15:05
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”.
Always a great and useful app...
by Ghetto Ghost on 2018/11/26 15:25
Great and useful app. I use it the majority of the time for my business. I like the reminders and options for alerts. I like that I can open Google maps by adding an address and then touching the address to go straight to navigating. I also add phone numbers and just touch them to make calls as well. Needs a dedicated area made for phone numbers though. Today I updated the app and now it will not even open for me to look at my schedule for upcoming appointments. This is critical. Luckily I have an iPod touch I have not updated yet. I know this issue will be resolved quickly and I will be fully operational again. Thanks for a great app and stay on top of the things that people rely on it for.
Great app, would like a fix tho...
by Sasiska1234 on 2018/05/18 20:12
So I absolutely love this app. It’s better than the native Calendar app! However, there is one thing that I would like fixed because it’s an absolute nuisance. When going to create an event, you type in your event name/title/description what have you. But then let’s say you typoed and you’d like to move your typing cursor to the appropriate location to change the error. (On any other app the little circular zoom cursor thing actually displays where your cursor will land. However in the google calendar it doesn’t work and you basically have to guesstimate where it’ll fall. It’s annoying and for being a well established company I can’t believe it’s been this long since the issue has been present and that it hasn’t been fixed. Fix and I’ll be more than happy to give the 5 stars that this app deserves.
Getting better but...
by Jimdnp on 2018/05/28 03:08
I alternate between this app and the native apple calendar, which populates from my google calendar. The current version is not quite as quirky as before but still not perfect. Above all, The developers STILL need to fix the same seem problem that has plagued this app from the beginning, namely, having the app icon display the current date instead of “31”. This isn’t rocket science to do as apple and many other calendar apps already do this. I work in a job in which I am subject to working any of the 7 days in a week and 365 days in a year. Therefore having the app provide a quick date reference without opening it doesn’t seem too much to ask. Come on, Google, really???
I really love this app but...
by amandawy311 on 2018/12/06 14:49
I have been using this for the past week and the layout is visually appealing, you can move things around very easily, and I like how you can set goals like exercise and track how often you are doing them. However, some of my tasks keep randomly disappearing and I’m not sure why. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m still a new user and the app is trying to regulate when my preferred times are for certain things but it’s very annoying regardless. For example if I move things around during the week certain goals will disappear but the continuous goal itself will still be there, schedule for the following weeks. I hope this makes sense and someone can fix the issue or at least explain to me why this happens.
Ridiculous
by GracieLouuFreebush on 2018/05/03 03:55
I usually send feedback directly to the developers when an app is misbehaving but this recent update that “fixed” the bugs/freezing broke my calendar and I can’t be in the app for more than a second before it crashes. And apparently you need to send feedback from inside the app. So I guess I need to leave a scathing review here in order in order to be heard. I rely quite heavily on my calendar and I’m pretty annoyed by the fact that I can’t access it from my phone. The last update was more than couple weeks ago and there still is no new update rolling out claiming to fix the various bugs (but probably breaking more things than it’s fixing). Still, anything is better than nothing. Can you please update this app?? I’d love to be able to see what’s on my schedule. Thanks. Edit// 4 days and a new update later, this app is still crashing. Unbelievable.
Use this app a ton, not thrilled with the redesign
by alyssalistens on 2018/12/16 04:48
Clearly I learned how much I loved and need this app when you did a redesign. Not excited about this new design. I don’t like that you got rid of all colors when I am adding a new reminder/event. It was much more intuitive and smooth before. The color that I associated with a reminder or task for a certain email was pretty engrained in my brain so when I don’t have that when I am adding in a reminder/event I think it will be much more likely that I add something to the wrong calendar. Since I have a lot of work related calendars that is especially concerning. There were some other design choices that I have felt to be displeasing but maybe I will get used to them.
Great App, occasional problems
by SamuelMaffit on 2018/04/27 04:01
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE this app. I love all of googles cloud-based products, and use them exclusively over Microsoft’s. This calendar has a clean and easy-to-use interface, and is very nice to quickly out in an event from anywhere that you log in. The only problem I have encountered is that there will be times when the app will just stop working completely. It will crash seconds after opening, and there is nothing I can do. I have to wait for either my iPhone or the app to come out with an update. This only happens maybe once every three months and will last for two or so days. I have it synced with my Apple calendar so I just use that for the time being.
Can They Do It or has common sense been deleted?
by Mrmostuff on 2017/12/06 04:20
I have Google everything... If Google made Google underwear... I would have the beta version. But this app annoys me for one simple reason... The app always shows the 31st. I think they under estimated how many iPhone users look at the app to get the date. Its very convenient to check the app with the time being also on top of the screen. For some reason they will not make it a dynamic app that updates its preview daily... Even though this app in particular and out of all their other apps... Is focused on date and time. They just refuse to fix it and take great joy in annoying us with their oversight. It is as if we should rename this app Google Bothersome or Google Annoy or maybe even Google Cmoooon Man. How did the app work you ask? I don't know as I refuse to open a calendar app who can only get the date correct 8 days a year.

Awesome, just update the number on closed app!
by Jk6.8185 on 2019/09/16 13:20
Love google calendar, easy to use, lots of great features. Something that would be greatly appreciated is if the calendar date on the closed app remained updated as opposed to always displaying the number 31. Similar to apple calendar, their date changes everyday. So all I have to do is glance at the closed app, without opening it, to remind me of the date. It would be an amazing feature to have the current date displayed on the closed app.
App has worked great but the month image keeps disappearing
by Snesnesnesne on 2019/09/16 03:52
The month image keeps disappearing and it’s making me sad, I want to see the aesthetic art in the background but it’s just blank. Please fix this. I think changing which day is the start of the week may have something to do with it.
The widget change
by flowergirl567321 on 2019/09/15 16:33
If you have an Apple phone the widget now only shows one day. I’ve checked you can’t change it. Please tell me this is going back to the way it was because I hate this.
iOS app and website not syncing
by oaj1977 on 2019/09/14 22:07

Features lacking
by Neesy113 on 2019/09/13 23:30

Side menu not opening
by Gillian L. on 2019/09/13 18:07
I love the Google Calendar app, but just today it’s started acting up: the side menu bar isn’t opening. I’ve closed and reopened the app several times, but to no avail
The app no longer pulls up google maps...
by Pierregalant on 2019/09/12 18:02
When tapping on the address on the calendar. Instead it sends me to safari which pulls up the web page google maps. To add insult to injury, that page then tells me I’m missing out for not using the google maps app! Only when I tap on that message does the Google maps app gets activated . This is extremely irritating. Google please fix it. Or you’re going to miss out on a bunch of stars.
Counter intuitive
by Splicer17 on 2019/09/12 14:25
When selecting a date, the small dots that indicate a scheduled event (in the month view) DISAPPEAR for that day. It’s easy to think you have no scheduled event unless you scroll down to view ALL the hours in that day. It lags you to believe there is nothing scheduled for that day.
Busy Family Sanity Saver - Mobile app needs to match web function
by klorfzore18 on 2019/09/12 13:52
I've been using Google calendar for years...YEARS. It's awesome. We have about 20 different calendars to keep up with between our family, work, activities, etc. I'd love to give this app 5 stars but there is a couple of things that need to be added: * Desktop calendar you can choose which days to repeat. I.e. Weekdays (Monday - Friday), specific days. You can not easily do this from the repeat option in the app. Only all or none. You have to log into the desktop version to edit or create repeated events. * Desktop computer you can easily update which calendar the event was created on if there was a mistake of adding an event to the originally created event. In the app, you're only able to edit the "default color." You have to log into the desktop version to edit the original event and then are able to change the calendar to add the event. * There is a workaround to share the colors, giving full rights to edit, delete, etc every event. But it would be nice to be able to add "Family Share" like most of the apps on the market to share every imported calendar, added calendars, etc. It would be great to be able to add any calendar, event (in the color required) automatically import into EVERYONE that needs to have the specific calendar. Having to log in to everyone's account to import from URLs, change colors, etc is tedious and time-consuming. However, this is vital to making sure everyone in our family knows where we're supposed to be.
Hold up
by RedPandasAreLit on 2019/09/12 04:03
I got this app to help me for one thing, google classroom. It made it very complicated and very hard to understand. I do see they put a lot of effort into this which i respect, but why can’t their be a google calendar for classroom like on the computer without this?
No date on the icon
by Nenoalslamat on 2019/09/12 03:51
The icon must show the exact date!!!!!
Good but need:
by rsozdance on 2019/09/11 07:39
1- it needs to let your change events to different calendars; 2- add goals to a another calendar not the event default calendar 3- add a goal as a reminder for example take supplements goal 4- add all day long goals example don’t use a phone all day twice a month 5- ability to reschedule an event you created for a new free time; like I couldn’t meet my mom find me a new time Thanks🌸
Lack of mobile task integration decrease the products value
by CromwellAdventure.com on 2019/09/10 19:12
I am an avid apple user, however I find that google desktop calendar provides better functionality with the inclusion of task reminders into the calendar itself. I was extremely disappointed when the iOS mobile google calendar was downloaded and did not integrate my task list into my calendar. For this very reason, I will not be using google calendar until it is integrated. Having something integrated via desktop but not mobile makes absolutely no sense in such a mobile connected society.
Thank you
by Mehrsaa on 2019/09/10 13:47
Dear google thank you for all of you apps. Please add persian calendar for us
Not helpful
by emjay5200 on 2019/09/10 13:46
Most of the time I have to go to my computer to use the web version of Google calendar because the app does not have even half of the features of google calendar’s web version. And why can’t I pick custom illustrations? If you want to share a calendar in this app... you can’t. If you want to see shared calendars, you can’t. It’s skimmed down to be simple looking which is nice... but actually trying to schedule things with people using this app is a dead end. It’s really just a clean way to view your calendar.
Icon Annoyance
by airexasaurus on 2019/09/10 04:23
So far my only gripe is the icon showing “31.” Can’t stand it. Change it to a simple calendar icon without a date and I will rate the app as a 4 star.
Incompatible
by Pip12398073 on 2019/09/10 03:35

Good, Should Do More
by TonyTime Tech on 2019/09/09 23:36
1) More colors; would they be easy to add? At least add *primary colors*, or colors closer to primaries. Burnt orange? Ugh. Unappealing. Just ask around. 2) Why aren’t *phases of the moon* addable in the app-?! Please?? 3) Can the Google Calendar icon, show the actual date everyday, instead of 31? Will Apple allow this? If not, “Apple, please allow this!” = )
Fix the widget!
by animalxstyle on 2019/09/09 05:48

As title says, when I use my Personal Hotspot, the menu bugs out and I can’t open it, meaning I’m stuck in the view I’m currently in. Would be 5 stars if this was fixed.

PLEASE FIX THE WIDGET
New version has many bugs
by Acjdgman on 2019/09/08 22:13
1. They changed the app to not cache any of the meetings you have, and takes many seconds to fetch the interviews. 2. They changed the action buttons to not eagerly do anything, so you tap buttons and it seems like nothing happened, and either nothing happens or it happens later. You have to use to desktop browser to check it! So slow!!!
Current Date on Icon??
by TB Hart on 2019/09/08 14:02
Great app — does everything I’d expect in a calendar app. I actually switched from iOS’s calendar app to this b/c I liked it more. My only recommendation is to add functionality so it shows the actual day/date on the icon itself. This feature is something I used often with the iOS app. Thanks!
No google tasks integration
by ZacharyLG on 2019/09/08 06:15
Unlike calendar in the browser, there is no google tasks integration.
Crap
by hxidif on 2019/09/07 18:35
Crap
Constantly crashes
by Cms8448 on 2019/09/07 14:57
For the past several months, through several updates, this app continues to crash anytime I open it. I have to use the desktop version to do anything. I have an iPhone XR so it should be compatible... not sure what the issue is!
Update date on App icon
by Peileo on 2019/09/06 11:21
My only complaint about the app is the static ‘31’ that’s on the app icon. I’d like to see it auto change to today’s date.
Tasks
by IsabelLast on 2019/09/05 23:52
Please fix the issue that tasks only show up on a desktop. The app on my phone doesn’t allow me to see my tasks. Other than that, a great app
It's good
by Just A Person From Mars on 2019/09/05 15:06
It's good, but it lacks the feature to see shared calendars. I expected to see my significant others schedule so we could coordinate dates together but this app lacks that function.
What happened to my entries
by Mellow_J on 2019/09/05 05:17
I’ve been using google calendar for years now, but I noticed that my entries only go back to July 2018? Everything before that is erased. Not cool! Everything should stay on our calendars and not be purged unless we request it.
iOS app stopped working in August
by grlgng on 2019/09/05 00:38
Calendar works fine on computers, but for me and a few of my coworkers, it doesn’t show most events/schedules on our cell apps. Apps & iOS are both up to date. PLEASE FIX THIS. We need it for work!!!
THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE
by Chris C. Martinez on 2019/09/04 21:34
I love organizing my life, especially with an app that holds everything. A few months ago I was looking to find another calendar app and I saw a YouTube tutorial on how to use Google Calendar to the highest capability. I do wish that you were allowed to edit an event and change the calendar they are on in the app. The website already has that feature but a lot of my organizing is on the go.
Icon
by HDsMom on 2019/09/04 18:10
Please make the app icon reflect the current date so you can see the date at a glance! Then it will be a 5 star app.
Favorite calendar but.....
by Cee_Nicole on 2019/09/03 13:36
I LOVE LOVE this calendar but I do wish there were more color choices
Widget Issue
by Skittles 234 on 2019/09/03 01:12
I love this app but since I updated the app the widget doesn’t work right with my iPhone anymore. It only shows today and not tomorrow and that’s pretty annoying. I want to be able to see what tomorrow has too. Can you please fix the issue with the iPhone widget?
Please fix!
by Nola Alon on 2019/09/02 19:27
I hate to give this app one star because I actually LOVE it. It helps my husband and I stay organized with synchronized schedules. However, the app now crashes whenever I open it. Very disappointed. I’ve contacted Google and they transfer me to Apple. I contacted Apple and then they transferred me to Google. Please help!
Family Calendar
by RobertP888 on 2019/09/02 13:58
For whatever reason, I now view my family’s calendar and every time I turn it off, it becomes re-enabled
Great app, one reasonable request
by Twins fan11 on 2019/09/01 20:53
I’m sure this is all falling on deaf ears as this request will go nowhere, however. I love the app...any chance you could put the current date number on the app? Currently the app has a 31 on there...could that change with the date...Example- on July 4th it shows a 4. I don’t even need it to show 7/4, just a 4 would be cool. More color options would be nice too.
Natural language input?
by Nsahoo on 2019/09/01 10:20
Web version used to have it once. Is it possible to bring it into the app and web version again? The rest is quite good.
Settings
by MoxiRowan on 2019/08/30 21:38
I love the ap and sharing the calendar with my husband so can both see what the other has scheduled but I wish the ap had the right date showing when it’s closed on phone screen - it just shows the 31. Not helpful at all if I’m in a hurry - I have to open the ap to be sure of the date. That’s all I’d fix.
Finally: Bug Fixed!
by AliceDanYuqinPeng on 2019/08/30 13:17
There was a long time: Google Calendar: 1. Loaded nothing 2. Crashed ALL The Time 3. Took forever to load things Now, 1. It’s still a little slow. 2. But, it’s working at least!
Good but not great
by @)$&(/:*^%#! on 2019/08/30 12:32
There is no possible way to see a colleagues calendar that isn’t already saved on the side bar from your desktop settings. I have to get my laptop out if I need to see a colleagues schedule that isn’t saved to set a meeting. It would be a lot more convenient if I could search the email to see the calendar.
No Task for Mobile App!

Widget
by arm4489 on 2019/08/29 15:15
I really liked when I could see the next 10 things (including the next day!) in the iPhone widget. Now it’s only the current day. Please revert or give options!!! Otherwise great.
Decent
by Zach37473772 on 2019/08/28 19:14
I think it’s overall quite good, although it’s missing some things that I would like to see. First of all, it doesn’t have drag and drop to change the time. I’m not able to move events around. This functionality should be added. Also, I can’t do specific times. It would be nice if I could choose exact times for events.
Tweak
by Tutti2142 on 2019/08/28 18:13
Would love the ability to see the day on the face of the app like how Apple Calendar does.
Icon isn’t date!
by <slunky> on 2019/08/28 03:39
Great app, but...come on Google. You can train AI and organize the world’s information but you can’t make the icon change on the day of the week? It’s the little things, Google.
Date on app
by hdhdh665 on 2019/08/27 21:29
I’d give this five stars if the date on the app reflected the current date when you are looking from your home screen (like the default iPhone calendar app).
Do you enjoy spam?
by JeremiahBui on 2019/08/27 21:06
No not the salty meat that taste great with eggs and rice. Spam from strange mysterious people who promise free iPhones. Your calendar will be FILLED WITH IT. It’s fantastic. It’s all I ever wanted.
Needs to include ‘Google Tasks’
by PabloDaPotato-Yann on 2019/08/27 17:54
This is a great app, but what I don’t like is that Google Tasks that have a deadline don’t pop up in the calendar. On the online version this does work, but on the iOS version it doesn’t show. Otherwise this is excellent.
Good... but
by geauxblue on 2019/08/26 23:44
I really do like the functionality, look, and feel of this app. It’s great in a LOT of ways... but I’m repeatedly annoyed with the options for repeating events. Why is there not an option to repeat weekdays only or even repeat on specific days? I hate scheduling something on the go and also having to remember to correct it later on my computer.
Widget
by Lukanater on 2019/08/26 17:58
The widget doesn’t show the next day and it’s literally the only thing I use so there’s no point of even using this app at this point
Wish I could uninstall the most recent update - widget has changed
by maxz313 on 2019/08/26 08:53
I love this app but I’ve noticed a change with the most recent update that has really taken away from this app’s functionality. The widget now only shows events for the current day when I click “show more”, whereas before it would show a set number of events with some going into the next day. Not sure if it’s an intentional change or a bug, but either way I would love for it to be changed back. Some days only have one event scheduled and that’s all that will show. It’s so helpful to see the next 6 or so events planned bc I could have one event today and then a ton tomorrow that I need to prepare for and keep in mind! If I could go back and not update this app so it stayed like before, I would do it in a heartbeat. TL;DR - widget now only shows today’s events, even when you click “show more”. Before it showed more, going into tomorrow if there was space, and that was much better and more helpful.
Daily Date page
by Rockaway1 on 2019/08/26 02:43
Why is the app page always on the 31st???? It should be on the day I’m looking at it. The date page should change daily to reflect the current day! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!!
Great (aside from notification issues)!
by Nilti19 on 2019/08/26 01:49
I enjoy the organization of this app but continue to experience inconsistency with the notifications. I’ve tried everything I can think of, but nothing has fixed the issue. Other than this, I enjoy how thorough the app is.
Thumbs down
by Wekkin on 2019/08/25 17:44
If I could give this app less than one star, I would. I’ve been using this app for years with no problems, yet today, I open the app and all my appointments, reminders, schedules, everything was gone. All of my sons’ scheduled things and appointments too. I tried to re-link my e-mail and re-set it up and nothing was recovered. Everything is lost. Important things are lost. I would advise anyone looking for a calendar app to keep looking because this one is obviously not reliable enough!
A blessing
by Vee. x on 2019/08/23 21:40
I never review apps but this app has been such a life saver. I transitioned from a paper calendar to Google Calendar because it became frustrating not being home and knowing I was forgetting an important event. I Iove the fact that we can color code events and add address to them.
Almost!
by Lucus9000 on 2019/08/23 19:24
I feel like google calendar should stay as my main app for scheduling my daily life but there is only one thing that is frustrating to get around with. When dealing with classes that appear more than once a week I would like to have the option to put on that single event that I have the same class repeating on certain days. The problem is that when you put for example classes on Monday and Wednesday it for some reason puts them on Sunday and Tuesday. I hope google sees this review and fixes it because I know it’s a minor issue but for those who don’t want to deal with typing the same event multiple times for a week it gets frustrating.
Not Syncing😱
by cheryl's opinion on 2019/08/23 16:37
I am trying to sync the calendars on iPad and iPhone. My iPad is fine. The phone isn’t. I’ve tried several steps under trouble shooting including deleting off phone. But to no avail. I’m not a G admin so I can’t call anyone. This is so frustrating. Ready to delete them off. I know it’s free...but I expected them to work as described.
Love it! Could you add this, by chance??
by Dpnpop on 2019/08/23 15:45
I’d love a change that would allow me to see more of my added appointments per day -on the monthly view. When they are hidden, It’s a hassle to click and see them; and I always prefer the monthly glance. Is this possible???? Also - Is it possible that the Calendar icon (that always say 31) could actually change daily to the “today’s date?” That would really top it off!! Thanks for considering!
Date
by googleliebmanxow on 2019/08/23 14:06
I love Google Calendar, but I really wish it said the date on the outside of the app like the apple calendar app does. I hate that I have to go into the app to see the date because I was an apple calendar girl before and got used to just being able to look at that. Now I’m always like “it’s the 31???” Haha
Time Zone Nightmare
by JamminBobber on 2019/08/21 23:53
The app changed the times of all of my events when I moved time zones! Perhaps somewhat low storage space on the phone contributed to this, but with more than a GB of space it should be able to handle such a small change. I shouldn’t have to switch to my former time zone to see the correct time for my events. It won’t even tell me which time zone I was in when I created each event. Could possibly see this but ruining people’s careers...
Thank you!
by maluchs on 2019/08/21 12:55
Thank you for making a monthly view! I haven’t used this app for years only because of that reason so thank you for finally making a monthly view! Love it!
Won’t sync with desktop
by ReptarRidesAgain on 2019/08/21 12:06
From last weeks update; it won’t sync with my laptop, I have tried... -triple checking that I’m on the right email and calendar -closing and reopening the app -logging out and logging back in -restarting my phone -deleting and redone loading the app It’s still not syncing, which makes it not very useful at the moment. Please fix, and thanks so much for providing such a great app for free.
Make the date change on the app
by diiebsbs on 2019/08/21 02:53
Make the date change on the app like apple calendar so I can use it on my phone to check the date
Wish the date would change on the app icon
by cjmvdm on 2019/08/20 23:40
I like the app, but wish the date would change on the app icon. The iPhone calendar app changes the date on the icon without having to open the app. It’s nice if you just need to look at your phone quickly for the date.
Could easily be 5 stars
by nfneiwjd on 2019/08/20 17:05
In the past google calendar would get a 5 star but very disappointed the widget is not working to show events for today and tomorrow. Could you also update app to show exact date and not always the 31st.
Alarm calendar
by Tonytood on 2019/08/20 09:04
The challenge is, the reminders just pop up once with one ring and then Vanish. It is easy for any one to skip it though you set a longer ring tone. It has to ring continuously like an alarm or phone call untill we respond! Can we do that? Need respond answer.
DOES NOT SYNC WITH TASKS APP
by Rachtikiss on 2019/08/20 06:15
Why does the app not sync with my tasks the same way it does on the computer?? Without that feature, this app is just another organizer. Very disappointed
Battery drain on new version
by 10xFRDM on 2019/08/19 18:46
This new version is draining my battery. Used the app for 20min and it sucked 39% of my battery on a new iPad. Sheesh, get this bug squashed fast!
Widget shows only today
by AparaV on 2019/08/19 14:46
Earlier, the widget used to show today and tomorrow. This was very useful. Now, it’s showing only today’s schedule. Can you bring back the today+tomorrow feature?
bugs
by Lauren N. Smith IRok-Z on 2019/08/18 14:15
won’t let me use the “custom” option to select multiple dates out of the week for an event to be on. makes the app inconvenient + time consuming, not to mention it happened even after I updated . also won’t show events on my laptop even though it’s the same account. this once worked so I don’t understand why it won’t now. please fix
It's not bad
by ssssaaaakkkk on 2019/08/17 02:20
It's a decent calendar. My only issue is that you can't prioritize events so that the most important event is on top of the list.
Poor info transfer
by karens iPhone510 on 2019/08/16 23:32
Cruises booked came through as flights, which is confusing when we also book flights often. Emails from a hotel stay came in for the whole week, when we were only staying one night, then attending a week long cruising event. For us, the info was inaccurate and confusing. Deleted app. There was no way to tap and edit wording.
Amazing

Buggy
by Duuuude1484256 on 2019/08/16 13:01
I like that they made this but it’s very buggy. Whenever I tap on Saturday it takes me to the previous Sunday which resulted in me just spending 15 minutes planning this weekend only to realize it was all going into last weekend.
Icon indicator?
by trumpspoolboy on 2019/08/16 12:51
Where is the switch to turn on the icon indicator. You know the icon that says March 31 etc. It’s the only reason why I don’t get rid of Apple calendar. It’s the deal breaker in my opinion. No icon switch I ditch.
Pls change the date!
by Darryasha on 2019/08/15 19:06
Please, please, change the app icon to reflect the current date! This is a small thing but it’s the only thing that prevents me from using this app 100%
Date
by Phil Frakes on 2019/08/14 21:45
Please have the date change hate how it always shows the 31st have it change by day I’m tired of using the apple app
Icon STILL doesn’t show today’s date?
by DHitrys on 2019/08/14 00:47
Hey Google: I can introduce you to developers who know how to update the app icon to show today’s date. Some even figured out how to badge them with today’s date.
Great App, but one suggestion
by Bnazzy on 2019/08/13 22:25
Google calendar works great and instantly syncs across my devices with several google accounts. It’s a very elegant interface, great for efficiency. My one suggestion: if you could, please change the app icon so that it reflects the current date. That’s the only thing that Apple Calendar does better than Google Calendar.

by pieces rule on 2019/08/13 12:47
I use my calendar every day and with Google, it goes to all my other electronics so I get my reminders. I use the weekly view so I can see appointments that I have and projects scheduled to do. I can’t believe as a person in my 50’s have to remind the younger generation to use it now there’s no excuses!!
Widget Help!!
by jvera05 on 2019/08/13 02:43
I really like google calendar but lately the widget that you can view when your phone is locked isn't working. That was my favorite part, and the most useful addition, of using google calendars on my phone but now it's not working.

Auto suggestions and prediction now broken
by bigPixel on 2019/08/13 00:41
One of the major advantages of the app was that it would auto complete or use predictive suggestions for events based on previous entries. That's been broken recently so the app is at this point no better than the built in ios calendar.

Planning future events.
by Smarter than the average user. on 2019/08/12 16:22
Google calendar is a great organization tool. But creating future events and reminders would be much easier if the app had a ‘go to’ date function especially for events more than a year away.

Disappointing new “feature”
by DMorrisPE on 2019/08/12 15:20
We are big fans of Google products, but I recently discovered that Google Calendar is deleting anything that is more than 3 years old. Big Deal, you say, so what? Why do you need old stuff? We have health issues, some minor and some very major, Big League important. Google used to have a product called Google Health that was used to compile a history of your illnesses, surgeries, treatments, prescriptions, etc. They apparently couldn’t find a way to monetize it, so, Poof, it went away, and they sloughed everybody off to join Microsoft Health Vault. It, too, has gone away. Google Calendar is where we turned next to keep track of our appointments, decisions, and by using the Notes portion of the Event, we can add questions to be asked of our doctors and record their answers, when to refill medicines. By keeping track of ALL of our health visits, we had documentation for our tax filings. So, if you need something only for Tomorrow, use Google Calendar. If you want to review past events, then Calendar is not the tool you need.

Search limitations
by nbjlsl on 2019/08/12 14:29
Not sure how far back the search looks, but it would be nice if it looked farther back. Sometimes when I search it does not find an item on the calendar on the app, so I open the calendar in safari to find it with no problem. Also, sometimes while trying to add a location on an item that I am adding does not find it, so again I go to safari and it works on the calendar there.
Was, now isn’t
by StDuroch on 2019/08/12 13:19
Google Calendar used to be an awesome app, a 5 Star app. In recent months it has many problems, including frequently lost data as well as a severe degradation of the Search function. I no longer recommend Google Calendar.
Good
by sandrew3t on 2019/08/12 13:10
This has been a great shared calendar that I have used to schedule appointments and everyone that needs to, can see where each other is scheduled to be. Unfortunately, I just have not been able to figure out how to search through previous year appointments

Adulting!
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.
Convenient but could be improved

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.
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!
I love this app (normally...)
by Seanie_Gee on 2018/05/01 03:35
Hey Google. My friends... Long time listener, first time caller. I LOVE my Google apps (generally) and have used Google Calendar as long as it has been available on Apple devices. However, since Apple released their atrocious IOS 11 and every subsequent horrible update, Google Calendar has been less than impressive. I can hardly schedule any personal or business events or meetings with my iPhone or my iPad (which has replaced my personal and business computer). There are SERIOUS lags on the app, to the point where lately I have hardly been able to functionally use it. I do really love that my travel emails and other event emails often sync right from my Gmail into my calendar. I love that I can send event links to family, colleagues, and customers for them to add to their digital calendars. I REALLY LOVE GOOGLE CALENDAR! Please fix it! I hope that you are able to resolve these issues and get Google Calendar working well again so I don’t have to move all of my info over to another calendar of some kind. Thanks. P.S. I literally just uploaded the newest update for the apps, and it still hasn’t solved any issues I’ve been facing.
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.
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!!
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. 🙂
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.
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.
Not quite ready for prime time
by Supuflorous 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.
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.
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!
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 up...it’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.
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.
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.
Wish I could uninstall the most recent update - widget has changed
by maxz313 on 2019/08/26 08:53
I love this app but I’ve noticed a change with the most recent update that has really taken away from this app’s functionality. The widget now only shows events for the current day when I click “show more”, whereas before it would show a set number of events with some going into the next day. Not sure if it’s an intentional change or a bug, but either way I would love for it to be changed back. Some days only have one event scheduled and that’s all that will show. It’s so helpful to see the next 6 or so events planned bc I could have one event today and then a ton tomorrow that I need to prepare for and keep in mind! If I could go back and not update this app so it stayed like before, I would do it in a heartbeat. TL;DR - widget now only shows today’s events, even when you click “show more”. Before it showed more, going into tomorrow if there was space, and that was much better and more helpful.
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.
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
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.
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.
Add More Colors
by Lupe0604 on 2019/03/12 23:41
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.
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.
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.

〰️ 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!
My suggestions

Overall, it I great app and easy to use. In goals, it would be great, if we had more options for measuring units. For example, now we can choose how many times we want to read or swim. But wouldn’t be great, if we had options like how many meters we want to swim or how much time we want to read weekly. More advanced reminders would be great. I usually use reminders as my to do list and often find myself with bunch of uncompleted tasks at the end of the week. There should some way to select reminders and change times for them. Or to have planned tasks list where we can keep our postponed or delayed reminders
This app is BROKEN starting in 2018

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.
Took an arrow to the knee...

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 event...it doesn’t show up. Move an event...it 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.
Love

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”.
Always a great and useful app...
by Ghetto Ghost on 2018/11/26 15:25
Great and useful app. I use it the majority of the time for my business. I like the reminders and options for alerts. I like that I can open Google maps by adding an address and then touching the address to go straight to navigating. I also add phone numbers and just touch them to make calls as well. Needs a dedicated area made for phone numbers though. Today I updated the app and now it will not even open for me to look at my schedule for upcoming appointments. This is critical. Luckily I have an iPod touch I have not updated yet. I know this issue will be resolved quickly and I will be fully operational again. Thanks for a great app and stay on top of the things that people rely on it for.
Great app, would like a fix tho...
by Sasiska1234 on 2018/05/18 20:12
So I absolutely love this app. It’s better than the native Calendar app! However, there is one thing that I would like fixed because it’s an absolute nuisance. When going to create an event, you type in your event name/title/description what have you. But then let’s say you typoed and you’d like to move your typing cursor to the appropriate location to change the error. (On any other app the little circular zoom cursor thing actually displays where your cursor will land. However in the google calendar it doesn’t work and you basically have to guesstimate where it’ll fall. It’s annoying and for being a well established company I can’t believe it’s been this long since the issue has been present and that it hasn’t been fixed. Fix and I’ll be more than happy to give the 5 stars that this app deserves.
Getting better but...
by Jimdnp on 2018/05/28 03:08
I alternate between this app and the native apple calendar, which populates from my google calendar. The current version is not quite as quirky as before but still not perfect. Above all, The developers STILL need to fix the same seem problem that has plagued this app from the beginning, namely, having the app icon display the current date instead of “31”. This isn’t rocket science to do as apple and many other calendar apps already do this. I work in a job in which I am subject to working any of the 7 days in a week and 365 days in a year. Therefore having the app provide a quick date reference without opening it doesn’t seem too much to ask. Come on, Google, really???
I really love this app but...
by amandawy311 on 2018/12/06 14:49
I have been using this for the past week and the layout is visually appealing, you can move things around very easily, and I like how you can set goals like exercise and track how often you are doing them. However, some of my tasks keep randomly disappearing and I’m not sure why. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m still a new user and the app is trying to regulate when my preferred times are for certain things but it’s very annoying regardless. For example if I move things around during the week certain goals will disappear but the continuous goal itself will still be there, schedule for the following weeks. I hope this makes sense and someone can fix the issue or at least explain to me why this happens.
Ridiculous

I usually send feedback directly to the developers when an app is misbehaving but this recent update that “fixed” the bugs/freezing broke my calendar and I can’t be in the app for more than a second before it crashes. And apparently you need to send feedback from inside the app. So I guess I need to leave a scathing review here in order in order to be heard. I rely quite heavily on my calendar and I’m pretty annoyed by the fact that I can’t access it from my phone. The last update was more than couple weeks ago and there still is no new update rolling out claiming to fix the various bugs (but probably breaking more things than it’s fixing). Still, anything is better than nothing. Can you please update this app?? I’d love to be able to see what’s on my schedule. Thanks. Edit// 4 days and a new update later, this app is still crashing. Unbelievable.
Use this app a ton, not thrilled with the redesign
by alyssalistens on 2018/12/16 04:48
Clearly I learned how much I loved and need this app when you did a redesign. Not excited about this new design. I don’t like that you got rid of all colors when I am adding a new reminder/event. It was much more intuitive and smooth before. The color that I associated with a reminder or task for a certain email was pretty engrained in my brain so when I don’t have that when I am adding in a reminder/event I think it will be much more likely that I add something to the wrong calendar. Since I have a lot of work related calendars that is especially concerning. There were some other design choices that I have felt to be displeasing but maybe I will get used to them.
Great App, occasional problems
by SamuelMaffit on 2018/04/27 04:01
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE this app. I love all of googles cloud-based products, and use them exclusively over Microsoft’s. This calendar has a clean and easy-to-use interface, and is very nice to quickly out in an event from anywhere that you log in. The only problem I have encountered is that there will be times when the app will just stop working completely. It will crash seconds after opening, and there is nothing I can do. I have to wait for either my iPhone or the app to come out with an update. This only happens maybe once every three months and will last for two or so days. I have it synced with my Apple calendar so I just use that for the time being.
Can They Do It or has common sense been deleted?
by Mrmostuff on 2017/12/06 04:20
I have Google everything... If Google made Google underwear... I would have the beta version. But this app annoys me for one simple reason... The app always shows the 31st. I think they under estimated how many iPhone users look at the app to get the date. Its very convenient to check the app with the time being also on top of the screen. For some reason they will not make it a dynamic app that updates its preview daily... Even though this app in particular and out of all their other apps... Is focused on date and time. They just refuse to fix it and take great joy in annoying us with their oversight. It is as if we should rename this app Google Bothersome or Google Annoy or maybe even Google Cmoooon Man. How did the app work you ask? I don't know as I refuse to open a calendar app who can only get the date correct 8 days a year.
