Not good compared to the android version
by rezaorome on 2020/07/08 02:09
I have switched to iPhone for couple of months and I noticed that google does not import many features it has in the iPhone. The most annoying one is report spam. If you have not come up with a solution to solve the spams in the google calendar add the report spam in the iPhone version. I don’t want to go to my laptop every time to click on the report spam.
Time zones missing
by elizareid on 2020/07/07 15:56
Really, no time zone for CST Chicago?
Great app, but:
by Iraklim on 2020/07/07 15:21
June 2020: Widget not updating reminders unless app opened. Widget not showing all-day events and reminders after non-all-day event or reminder. Feb 2020: Widget not showing all-day events and reminders after non-all-day event. Widget not refreshing unless app opened.
Good
by amy davenport on 2020/07/07 03:46
I love it but the only thing is it I had some trouble making facts but I really liked that it was like an assistant
Clutch in app
by bops234 on 2020/07/07 00:39
Using it as a shared calendar has its challenges. Events scheduled through the app do not appear to everyone or across devices. Scheduling through the link or from a computer browser works fine. Hoping an update will fix the issue.
Doesn’t give you the current date on the icon
by Chipsundip on 2020/07/06 22:12
How does this not exist? Maybe it’s a setting within the app itself? The only reason this isn’t five stars is due to this seemingly simple feature missing from a company capable of achieving very complex things.
Works well...but the icon widget does not show correct date
by 🤔📱🤔 on 2020/07/06 16:03
The icon that actually shows on the phone always shows the number 31. It does not show the correct date. Kind of out of date. Google should fix this. I am leaning towards going back to the Apple calendar just because I want to see the correct date. Giving a one star rating because this is like the most obvious thing a Calendar app needs
Latest update
by aaaasssseeessss on 2020/07/06 12:27
Nice job on this update to “fix bugs and performance issues”!!! The calendar doesn’t give any meetings on the page now. Again Nice Job!! Now fix it fast like yesterday!!!
Fine but why no app face date??
by K on 2020/07/06 02:44
This calendar works great, I use it to connect my whole life and keep organized but one major irritant is that the app face always reads the 31st, why??? Almost every other calendar app I’ve tried shows the current date for quick glance and apparently this is something google cal can’t do? How did no one there think to add this incredibly helpful yet simple feature to the calendar app.
Reminders/Tasks useless
by pvm77 on 2020/07/04 05:07
Reminders work for a while after installing the app, then stop giving notifications. Reinstalled the app, and they worked for a while but then stopped giving notifications again. Tried to replace this functionality with the Tasks app, but there’s no way to get Tasks to show up on the Google Calendar app even though it’s possible to do this on the web version of Google Calendar. Tasks app also doesn’t give notifications, ever, even immediately after installation.
Great Organizational Tool
by Chavo_209 on 2020/07/01 17:58
App is immensely help for my day to day task the only thing I wish was available on the app version would be to be able to view my tasks that I have on my computer.
Still ugly
by drjwr on 2020/07/01 02:59
Ever since the update that gave us squared corners, grid lines, and pushed the minimalist look to the gutter.
Date icon
by Len987 on 2020/06/30 20:47
Use it all the time but keep IOS calendar on home screen as icon reflects current date instead of always “31”
Google Calendar
by ilovekanda on 2020/06/30 12:04
I would like for it to date and time stamp an event you add to the calendar.
Can’t join
by aassgjkllpivvv on 2020/06/30 03:22
Looks super nice and easy to join until my mom tried inviting me and i cant join. The calendar she made won’t show up on my device. It makes no sense because google docs seem so easy to share so how can’t we share a calendar. Just sad.
Please have APP button reflect current my date
by Joel the Rose on 2020/06/30 01:55
Please have app button reflect current date, then I can get rid of my Apple calendar
Task Feature for Mobile App
by Bsjshehen on 2020/06/29 21:47
It would be greatly appreciated if the Task feature can get added to the mobile device app because it is a bit frustrating to add a task on your computer and then logging into your mobile app and not seeing it there.
Suggestion
by onken82 on 2020/06/29 15:47
Integrate Google Keep for notes. I like having checkboxes. ✔️
Please make the icon reflect the current date
by JP B. on 2020/06/28 19:37
The app is pretty good. Does anyone else want the app icon to reflect the date? Come on google?
Love Google calendar, but
by darlenatrout on 2020/06/28 19:22
I love Google calendar, but I can not get it to connect to other emails besides google. I need it to connect to outlook email or work with outlook calendar and bring items over.
Please update date shown on icon
by cjonze12 on 2020/06/28 16:53
This app works well, but I don’t understand why the date on the icon doesn’t update it each day to show the actual date- this would be very useful. The apple calendar app does this.
Suggestion
by MD922 on 2020/06/28 09:04
Everything is good except two changes that need to be done: 1) Ability to search calendar through ALL TIME 2) The app icon should have the day of the month on it so if we quickly need to know the date, we can just look at the app
Doesn’t allow correct times
by Banazir864 on 2020/06/28 04:11
Mostly functional, but it doesn’t seem to allow you to set events to start or end at a time that’s not a multiple of 5 minutes, which means some events (e.g., flights) can’t be calendared for their correct time. This can lead to unnecessary confusion.
Great calendar
by Rgh605 on 2020/06/26 22:15
But can Google Tasks become visible on the Google Calendar for iPad and iPhone ?
Not good any more
by RLC P.R. on 2020/06/26 17:03
How bad, can’t edit an existing event in the main screen as use to edit, cant create a new event easily like use to be, there is too many steps now and complicated to create a new one. Don’t like any more, sorry.
Google Calendar
by saver2012 on 2020/06/26 02:49
I’ll give you 5 stars to either make the icon count as days passing or change it to something else without 31 on it or any Number. Please! 💕
Display wish
by Buildestroy on 2020/06/25 15:54
This app is great. I downloaded thinking I would try to migrate from Apple’s calendar and it would take some time, but the transition was immediate. My only wish is the app icon would display the actual date, like Apple’s. It was super convenient to just glance at when looking at the home screen. Great app!
Please!!! Do this
by Murie J. on 2020/06/25 10:44
Just like the apple calendar app it NEEDS to feature the date right on the app icon! Please, then it’s perfect.
Why no Watch App?
by Ben Kenon on 2020/06/25 03:56
It’s a great app for sure, but would it be so hard to come up with a Watch version and a couple of complications?
Adding one thing
by Faded Cross on 2020/06/24 23:14
Awesome app, it works really well, never crashes and I even got to connect it with someone else so we can both keep track our events and reminders. I just want to add on thing, I couldn’t find a way to skip ahead to the next year without having to swipe month by month which is annoying. Also, if I wanted to add a mew event and I wanted it to be for next year I would have to do the same...swipe and swipe and swipe month by month until I get there. Maybe I am missing something and I am doing it wrong but if not then please add a way to skip ahead to next year more easily.
New 2020 update is garbage.
by Shy8675309 on 2020/06/23 18:36
It won’t let me add any events. Even when I click the plus and event, there is no pop up to add information. When I tried to delete and re-upload the year went back to 1887.... and won’t let me change it to 2020. I can’t add reminders either. This is crap. YouTube and google haven’t laid out any solutions yet either.
Eh
by JackieinUnderland on 2020/06/23 00:55
I love the app and all the stuff it’s supposed to do but it doesn’t work. It’s supposed to remind me at 4 about something and I have a 10 min reminder notification bell thing to remind me 10 min before 4 but it’s like it chooses when to remind me and when not to besen though it’s supposed to remind me M-F not on some days and not others. If it’s actually works then for sure it would be 5 stars.
Missing one thing
by Tchrmom06 on 2020/06/22 20:00
Wish the icon showed the current date number like apple’s calendar. Everything else is awesome.
What Happened?
by NBLEYTE on 2020/06/22 01:06
This app was great but after the last update I know show yearly events each month. If I have a birthday event in January it is now listed each month. What happened??
Hate the new UI
by -_-_-_JP on 2020/06/20 13:09
Not a fan of the new UI. You used to be able to press on a day and time of the week and gcal would make the event at that time. Now it defaults to the current day and you have to go in and manually change it How often to you make same day appointments?

Contacts address
by Bv0312 on 2020/06/18 23:28
When adding location for events, it will not pull contacts saved addresses. This used to work, and works on my Android work phone. Hoping this is fixed on iOS app soon.
Good but...
by Dog sauce on 2020/06/18 15:11
It would be ideal if an update could be made where the date on the calendar changes to the actual date (instead of just the 31st all the time). Similar to the Apple Calendar
Not loading months and years properly
by HCTaxi on 2020/06/18 10:55
Since yesterday I have no calendar events on my iPhone SE 2020 before June/2019. Fortunately they are all on my Mac, but no sync/delete/reload fix corrects this issue.Husband has it on his droid as well, so not my phone’s problem.Sure do hope you can fix this quickly.

Fine
by ok you yes you reader on 2020/06/17 19:14
I have google meet for my meetings now and it says you could schedule a meeting with google app but I looked around and can’t really find how to do that but over all I think it’s cool and also shows all my assignments in google classroom on there due dates and I read your reviews too about the update being bad and so when it pops up I would actually say yes because I want to see if the app read your reviews their selfs so I want to see if they in proved the in proof but if it goes bad like you people say I will totally delete the app and re download it so I might start over but like I said over all I like this app so that’s why I would re download it and once I say yes I will totally write another review about my new experience so yes bye......
Too many bugs
by Laedie on 2020/06/16 22:55
I used to love this app but now i can’t even color code my events because the app won’t let me. Please fix this.
I need to be able to share reminders.
by Prettyladytown on 2020/06/16 13:16
This app is great overall. But one major flaw is that events are shared through the calendar but not reminders. Really frustrating to discover accidentally.
Can’t change colors
by Um I don't know yet on 2020/06/16 05:52
Could not color coordinate the goals tab specifically despite changing the default color multiple times. Please fix the bug
Settings for different colors
by Bar Ken on 2020/06/16 04:42
For instance. Doctors appointment, green, barber appointment blue. Should be someway to go in settings and name the different colors for different appointments. Other than that works fine.
Events Randomly Deleted
by MM2393 on 2020/06/16 01:34
I had over two months of scheduled events planned out. For some reason today I woke up to every single event (past and future) gone. Turned my phone off and on but nothing, checked through desktop but nothin is there either, and nothing in the trash folder, removed my account from app and added it again...nothing. I have no idea what happened but now I have to go through a ton of emails and hope that I can reschedule everything I had prior to this.
King of searches not Soo good in Calendar
by Jyunte on 2020/06/15 18:43
Google is the king of searches, but if you want to search your Google Calendar app for events in the past, good luck! Calendar will only search for upcoming events, so if you wanted to find out, say, the last time you had your car serviced, it won't find it. Now that's really annoying, and you'd think it would be a basic feature.
Lost last 2 months of appointments.
by Swampmudrock on 2020/06/14 22:13
Worked fine for 3 months then just lost last two months of appointments , really wanted to keep them.
ADD MORE COLORS!!!
by HTigee on 2020/06/14 16:59
Fantastic app. I don’t usually leave reviews but one thing bothers me enough that I will. PLEASE ADD MORE COLORS!!!!!!! The app is perfect other than this. I have a busy life and every day wish for more colors to help differentiate and organize the different types of events in my mind. For example, right now I don’t have any color for exercise related events. PLEASE. MORE COLORS!!!!!! Then I would give it 5 stars. Thank you! :)
Please fix this printing issue
by sharon849 on 2020/06/11 05:17
I have tried to print a month of July calendar in landscape mode that I selected in print preview, which shows the calendar in landscape. It will not print from print preview screen. I sent it to my printer & the calendar is in portrait mode. Help! Why is this happening. I need to be to print calendars.
Time Zones
by RUDE4100 on 2020/06/10 18:30
I work with multiple tome zones, I usually work on my computer and on my mobile phone. On desktop, you can chose to show different time zones at the same time which I love so much. However, on mobile a secondary time zone doesn’t seem to be an option. Maybe I can’t find it in setting but if it isn’t, I’d really appreciate being able to view multiple time zones on mobile. Thank you for your time.
Perfect eXCEPT icon
by Golden iPod on 2020/06/10 18:10
Perfect app, works way better than the calendar that iPhones come with by default, except that the icon of Google Calendar is stagnant at 31 whereas the apple calendar app icon reflected what day of the month it was before you even opened the app, which was EXTREMELY helpful. If google calendar could do that too then it would be five stars for sure
Google Calendar
by DexDobe on 2020/06/10 07:56
It would be totally awesome if you could have the actual day of the month show up on the front of the app instead of the generic “31”. If you did that I would start using the app. Otherwise it’s a great app.
Google Calendar
by KitKatPita on 2020/06/08 23:15
(Please note that until the emoji is about apple calendar) (It is also very sarcastic) It is like THE BEST when stuff DOESN’T WORK. It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING when that happens. Apple Calendar is HORRIBLE. 😬At least I can DO STUFF with Google Calendar. THANK YOU Google, for making a calendar that WORKS.
Trusty and easy!
by jakepaul on 2020/06/08 14:04
I would give this app 5-stars but it’s missing one thing: the date on the icon itself. For example, if today is the 8th I’d like the app icon to reflect the date like iCal does rather than saying 31 all the time:
Removing app after 1year
by mike r 94 on 2020/06/08 12:31
I can’t get it to sync frequently with my work google account or something. So some meetings are not appearing. Today I missed a meeting. I tried deleting and reading my accounts and reinstalled the app. No change. Moving to woven. I does show the missing meeting.
Date on mini calendar not displayed
by LeMomops on 2020/06/06 14:16
How come the number of the day doesnt change on the icon thats on the homescreen like it does on the android version of google calendar or the original iphone calendar app? thats some bad programing right there.
Fix time out bug
by SlobGaming on 2020/06/04 23:38
Keeps shutting off while entering new event
Good, but ...
by MTNANA09 on 2020/06/04 16:25
It is interesting that I can’t find any developer responses to the reviews I have been reading. Makes me wonder if they are even read. Pros of this app are: 1. Month at a glance with events visible and color coded. Cons are: 1. Current date does not appear on app icon (that’s a big negative for me) 2. Cannot easily edit event color/calendar. 3. Cannot easily add same event to another day (e.g. monthly appointments that are not on the same day of the week each time) I used the Apple calendar for years before switching to Google and there are things Apple does far better. I continue to use Google primarily because of the month view, but cannot give it 5 stars.
Stopped syncing
by Gladlynt on 2020/06/04 14:54
The app has been working great until it stopped syncing the calendar. Troubleshooting hasn’t helped. Also, whenever I try to set the Default Event Duration time to 120 minutes the app crashes (even after being reinstalled)
Search Button and Delete All Emails
by Relentless0313 on 2020/06/04 14:06
I wish they had their search button on top of calendar instead of having to go somewhere else to search. Also, I wish they had the delete all email feature.
Love it.
by Miming_ on 2020/06/03 03:17
Love the simplicity of the app. I came from Android and I love how familiar the app is.
NOT a long review
by #Not a long review on 2020/06/02 23:49
Many people write long reviews, and I don’t like to read it because I have better things to do. Right now I have nothing to do, so I am writing a few throngs I like. 1. Works very smoothly and fast in creating events 2. Gives you a notification before an event 3. Allows you to see other people’s schedule in your office or school to connect with them. A GREAT APP!!
Can’t print from iPad or iPhone
by Bisbob on 2020/05/31 22:12
Love working with the app, but there is no option on either my iPhone or iPad for printing a hard copy. All help on the internet refers to clicking on a settings option which does not exist. Google help is nonexistent. Keeps referring to upper right corner for a setting option. Only there is no such thing. Really poorly designed.
Great app, one small software update would help
by SMHolley on 2020/05/31 16:55
Makes unorganized people look like they’ve got their s*%# together. Wish that when I create an event on the wrong calendar that I could switch the calendar without having to delete the entire event and restart it with the correct calendar designation. I do this a fair amount and although it is a minor inconvenience, it’s still annoying when scheduling clients.
Utterly nonfunctional
by GameDrop on 2020/05/31 02:46
Most of these free calendar apps are pretty bad, but this isn’t even functional. Expecting a read-only version of your online Google Calendar is setting your sights too high. This thing is missing very basic features, like the ability to add a calendar from a web link, or any ability to edit an editing calendar link. The only way I’ve found to add a new calendar published from a standard “+ Google Calendar” link is to uninstall this app, and let the web version take over.
i love the app but 1 problem
by Jazlynqueen30608 on 2020/05/29 01:26
I personally prefer the Google Calendar app than the Apple calendar app. The app works really good for me but I wish it could have the app on the apple watch. I could sync it with the apple calendar but sometimes it doesn’t sync everything. Please put a google calendar app for the apple watch because it helps me stay organized and see everything on my apple watch. Other then that it is a good calender app.
App photo design
by Teejular on 2020/05/28 23:19
Wished instead of “31” the app would change to whatever the date is just like the stock Apple Calendar app.
Crashes on open
by Roy Loomis on 2020/05/28 17:45
Every. Single. Time. Besides that no complaints.
Missing 1 thing
by Cowfdcowfd on 2020/05/28 12:16
My biggest complaint- the iOS app icon should reflect the number of the date we’re on. Apple’s native calendar does this and it’s so much nicer, but I need to use your calendar for easier sharing to my google based husband and kid. Please put the date (number only) on the app icon.

Persistent alarm like reminder option
by william z song on 2020/05/27 16:05
Please add Persistent alarm like reminder option.
I’m looking for another app
by smendozabrown on 2020/05/27 15:17
Simply bc there is no sound to remind me about notification. I checked my settings to test, and the notification popped up; however, no sound (even sigh sound setting on). I guess I’m just used to MS Outlook, but I shouldn’t have to compare a Google product to Microsoft.
Problem
by MerlotRed on 2020/05/27 13:50
After years of use with minimal issues, out of the blue it won’t open. When I try to open the app, I get a prompt that says I have to buy from the App Store. When I clock through to App Store, says I always have it and closes, putting me in the same loop. iPhone XS user, iOS 13.4.1. Please fix.

Not syncing with the desktop version
by Cjwlonghorn on 2020/05/26 15:22
I have loved having this app until recently. My ex and I share appointments and events for our kids through it. But lately, it is not syncing accurately as compared with the desktop version. This makes it useless when scheduling appointments, etc because we can’t see what’s been added, thus creating conflicts. It’s previously been the perfect calendar app but if this doesn’t get resolved, we’ll have to find another one that we can depend on.
app won’t open

I so WISH the actual # on the app picture would reflect the actual current date like it does for the iOS calendar!! Ugh so annoying I didn’t realIe how much I used that feature do seeing them today’s date on the normal calendar app that comes with the iPhone until now that I’m using google calendar as a default! Make the image change with the current date please google! You can do it! 🧐

Some small problems
by ryanokee on 2020/05/24 14:25
Overall, this app runs really smoothly and looks great. I’ve encountered some problems though that are a bit frustrating. 1. Whenever I move an event from one day to the next by dragging and reopen the app afterwords, the event goes back to its original time and day 2. It would be great to see a more comfortable UI for setting reoccurring events and times— there are too many things to click on and select that it becomes more of a hassle than anything else
App no longer working
by NCMamaof2 on 2020/05/24 13:27
I had loved the Google calendar app for years! Suddenly it has stopped working and says I no longer have access to share the app and to download. When I go to download, it shows it is already downloaded and brings me back to the original error message. Hope this bug can be fixed soon.

I have been using this calendar for a couple years, this morning I clicked on it and it says “the calendar is no longer shared with you” “go to the App Store to purchase” so I click the link and and in the App Store it says OPEN but nothing happens- I get the same error. Very disappointing.
App now failing on iPhone
by iwantmycalendar on 2020/05/24 02:44
5 star rating as an iPhone user until this week. All of a sudden, app failing. Error message says “you need to pay for this app” when i attempt to open app and see my scheduled spots. But when i attempt too pay, app crashes. Give me my calendar back!??
Awesome for me
by Jason-hou1 on 2020/05/23 22:59
This app is extremely convenient. It is easy to add any reminders and events, and it’s great that there’s a view for each day, week, month, etc. I’ve had no problems with it thus far (I started in March 2020), though I do wish there were more colors. Other than that, my life has been easier with it.
Update?
by madcalendarmom on 2020/05/23 18:22
Why can’t I access my calendar anymore. It says I have to go to App Store to purchase it. No warning...nothing. Can’t get to anything in my calendar. 😡 App Store shows it in my cloud so there’s no where to purchase.
What’s going on?
by Zero fun on 2020/05/23 15:11
This morning when I went to open my google calendar app, I got a message that said “This app is no longer shared with you. To use it, you must buy it from the Apple store.” Then, when I went to the google calendar page on the Apple store, there was no option to buy it and when I open the app it closes immediately. This kind of issue is unacceptable for both Apple and Google. What’s the fix?
App crashing
by jmondo123 on 2020/05/23 14:23
Saying it won’t share and I need to buy it. Same issues as others in last 24 hours.
Events won’t show
by west1745 on 2020/05/23 14:06
None of my events are showing since the last update
What happened to my Google Calendar
by Anna C76 on 2020/05/23 02:19
Today when I tried to add an event to my google calendar on my iPad I got a message that “this app is no longer shared with you. To use it you must buy it from the App Store.” When I go to the App Store and click on the Google App it shuts down and gives me the same message. Until today, the Google Calendar was my favorite. What can I do?
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.
Add More Colors/ Set Up A New Calendar
by Lupe0604 on 2020/01/06 05:53
I love using Google Calendar to keep track of everything as it is an app that serves me so well. Its an app that for the past 3-4 years has been steadily reliable and never once failed me. However, time after time again I find myself wishing for more colors to be able to use to differentiate the types of events that go on in my busy lifestyle. More colors would allow for so much more organization to exist within the app. The colors that currently exist within the app are nice, but a fully and well developed calendar app should offer more variation. Please, this is the only issue I have with using Google Calendar, and this reason alone is why I would not give it the full 5 stars it would otherwise get. All I ask is for more colors. Please. Edit: Another thing that is irritating is how on the app we can not add a new calendar and have to use a browser. The whole point of the app is to use all the features on the app and not have to grab my laptop every time I want to add a new calendar. I still love this app but I just wish they would add the feature to the app as it would help sooooo much.
Helps me organize my life!!
by MoMo527527 on 2019/07/15 17:25
As a high school student that plays sports, has a job, babysits, and is involved in many *many* clubs, this app helps me organize my life!! I love the automatic pictures that come up and how i can share calendars with people (my team etc), and THE COLORS. i legit have corresponding colors for everything and i absolutely love it!! my one tiny thing is how all events have to last for a period of time. i would love an option to have events just occur at a certain time and have no end time. for example when i need to pick up my little sister that occurs at a certain time and isnt a duration of time, also some meetings for clubs and such dont have an end time so just putting in a random time doesnt really help me. adding this feature would really help me make this a 5 star review because after that i dont know what this app could be missing! but other than that i absolutely love this app and i dont plan to stop using it anytime in the future!!
Absolutely a disaster
by Ibrad14 on 2018/05/23 16:12
What changed? I don’t experience crashing however the app is useless. It has all of these bells and whistlesbut it’s impossible to easily put an event on the calendar. When I’m in month review, I should be able to touch the day that I want to add an event to and have it open up that day and then let me pick the time of the event. But instead it tries to be too smart and it opens up instead a daily view but not even the day that I touched. And then when I have to make an event I have to click another ‭+ sign‬ and then choose the events option— way too many clicks compared to other cal apps!!! and then on the next Screen I have to fill out all of these fields but none of them are easy to differentiate from the other and they have too many auto populated fields that are similar… For example the word “at”.... I use “at”for the time but nope the “at” Refers to location. It’s awesome that you can link it to the maps and your contacts and all that however it’s useless with putting an actual event into your calendar. I am finding myself, when I’m scheduling something on the fly, giving myself reminders thru siri for when I get home to put it into the calendar. Because I can’t do it on my phone! I guess I will go back to the CalenGoo app!
Convenient but could be improved
by lalaniam on 2018/01/04 21:18
I love the colors to be able to tell the difference. I also love the ability to share events with people. I do wish that I could add the same event to multiple days. For example, work, for people who don’t work the same days every week. If I work and 7am-7pm multiple days a week; that I could just type in the information and just click on the different days that I work. Another example would be for volunteering events; I have to keep typing them in, because they don’t repeat on the same days of the week each week. It’s a huge downside. I keep hoping there will be an update with it. But I may start looking for another app. Additionally, it would be nice to have more neon colors for color coordination. As me and my husband share calendars and have events for the kids. It would really help separate each of those things. I often run out of colors.
PLEASE FIX IT GOOGLE: So disappointed on how buggy it is
by guess15me on 2018/01/23 18:33
I wanted to love this app so much because I love my Google Calendar on my computer. And initially I did love this app because it functioned fine and brought a lot of color and visuals to my calendar which I really liked for organization. However as of the last couple of weeks at least this app has been nothing but a headache. It just freezes up whenever I open it. Then it’s completely lagged out. I can hardly ever get to be able to create an event before it just shuts itself down and app disappeared. Every little thing will be logged out. Opening the app and loading it, creating an event, typing each individual letter (which could take 10 seconds before a letter while actually appear), list goes on and on. Now I highly doubt that there is an issue with my phone because I have only a fraction of my memory used and I keep my phone software pretty squeaky clean. I don’t even have a lot of videos or photos, and I don’t even stream very much. Everything else on my phone functions fine except when it comes to trying to operate this app. Until google fixes this issue, This app is really intolerable and unusable.
Freezes, lags, even randomly starts scrolling back to years past
by Chosen7Stone on 2018/04/19 15:07
I want to like this app. On my laptop browser, I keep Google Calendar open in a pinned tab because I rely on and appreciate it so much. But as an app, it’s the worst thing on my phone - and I’ve kept using it because of how heavily I rely on it. But today, I’m searching the App Store for alternatives. A recent update said they were addressing the freezing issues some users experience. I haven’t seen improvement. This morning, I kept three people waiting so I could let them know whether I was available in two weeks - the app opened, promptly froze, and then zoomed me back to April 2017, then June 1970. I’m writing this in April 2018. The conversation moved on; ten minutes later, I was still checking the app to see if it had caught up and would allow me to scroll forward two weeks. I eventually gave up. Sometimes I want to edit an existing event and the window halfway opens, then lags/freezes. It takes 5-6 minutes to open, even if I close and reopen the app. I have no idea how to fix this. It is a wonderful, wonderful app — when it works. I can’t afford to wait for it to be fixed anymore.
Best Free Calendar App You Can Get
by shelbhoc on 2019/03/25 19:39
I’ve tried all kinds of available calendar apps, but this one is by far my favorite! I often tell my friends to drop their apps and opt for Google Calendar because I really think it is so much better than any other free-cal app out there. I am easily able to look at my daily, weekly and monthly schedule- and I LOVE that the monthly outlook actually tells me what I have going on each day. I can also color-code events/calendars so I can see what realms I have working each day, AND it syncs up online so that I can use it on my computer too. I also have calendars made for my team so that I can put events in all of our schedules at one time. And I can set GOALS and make REMINDERS and CHECK THEM OFF AS I GO??? Amazing. I probably sound like a fake review right now, but I swear I am a human (who never even writes reviews) and I just really really love this app. Do yourself a favor and get this.
Everything one might need in a calendar app
by Tom D. Kim on 2017/09/18 20:23
I love how Google Calendar automagically uploads everything to the cloud. I also love how it suggests locations based on the address one types in (of course it doesn't do this for private addresses, but it is still a handy feature.) It will set reminders by month, day, hour, or minute, and it also asks if one wants to set up recurring appointments for a number of weeks, a number of days, or annually (handy for Birthday reminders.) The app will also convert between time zones across the world—another useful feature. And all of these can easily be set whether one is using a smartphone or a tablet, and also a desktop or a laptop. All of the changes are sent to the cloud, as well. It is possible to export it into many other formats as well, such as iCal, and Microsoft Office. I ❤️ Google Calendar and will continue to use it until they pry it out of my hands. 🙂
Awesome App!
by Stootsy on 2020/03/13 08:03
After losing my entire Outlook Calendar during a PC switch, I started using the Google calendar, and I’ve never considered using anything else. This app instantly updates everything on all my devices in real time, and meets all my needs. As the president of a local non-profit organization, and communications manager, it is critical that my schedule is accurate and clear. This app provides all the amenities necessary to achieve the goals of our group as well as my personal appointments. The color coding is one of my favorite perks. The “Find” feature is awesome for tracking previous schedules as well when tracking year-end reporting to build the calendar for the new year ahead. I highly recommend this app for anyone who is constantly on the go.
Excellent Calendar, even better with a few tweaks
by E.G.G S. on 2018/12/12 19:44
My school uses Google Suite for student email, handout distribution and storage, and turning in assignments, to name a few uses. I use Google Calendar to coordinate all of these things and record my homework. I have a color-coded calendar for each class so I can glance at my week and see my work load easily. Unfortunately, I have to set up each assignment as an event because reminders can’t attach to calendars or change their color. This makes it difficult to see a list of all my homework together, whereas with reminders, I could mark them as done and display them together. I also encountered an issue where trying to share an event with someone while creating it would cause the event to not be created, but sharing the event after creating it would be successful. Still, these are minor problems and improvements and overall, this is one of the best calendar apps I’ve seen.
Started off a 5⭐️ app
by Rachel Dalton on 2018/05/17 12:13
I downloaded this a while ago and it was amazing. Definitely the best calendar app I’ve ever used by a long shot! But over the past few weeks this app has been a real thorn in my side. The first issues were speed. I would hit something and the lag time would be so great that my phone would dim trying to go to sleep. But eventually it would load and I could put in new calendar entries and see my schedule. It was usable. I would’ve probably given it a 2.5 ⭐️ rating during that period of time. But now I can’t use it at all. It immediately crashes every single time I open the app. Not only have I lost the ability to put in new entries all together but I’ve also lost my ability to even see my schedule. I’m so frustrated. I really loved this app but they really need to make and update to fix this issue and fast. I’m sure they are working as hard as they can to hone in on the issue, but until then, I’ll be using apple’s calendar app and checking my google calendar on a computer. I look forward to hearing the issues have been resolved once they have been.
Not quite ready for prime time
by Supuflourous Flounder on 2018/02/19 09:03
I love google calendar, mostly. I share my calendar with people I need to schedule with, and we keep synchronized. But what really drives me crazy are monthly recurring events, of the form of “Third Wednesday of the month” or “Second Saturday of the month”. There is no “repeat” option for these kinds of events. I wrote a calendar app in 1977, on a timesharing system, that had this functionality in its 1.0 release. I have been asking google for this feature for several years, and while they keep coming out with cutesy graphics and other worthless features, the fundamental functionality of monthly recurring meetings is missing. There are insufficient colors for all my activities, mostly because they have chosen a weird subset of colors and assigned cute names to them. I would like to create my own colors and assign my own names to them. Right now, “sage”=“Skype meeting”, “banana”=“medical appointment”, “Tangerine”=“writers’ group”, “grape”=“volunteer”. I would like to say “RGB(255,255,0)”=“medical”, and have the color yellow appear as the color name “medical”. It is annoying to have to keep this dictionary in my head; the app should help me. I’ve been asking for this feature for years as well. Instead, I get cutesy graphics apparently designed to appeal to 14-year-olds, not retired professionals. So it is a tolerable app for what I need, but a far cry from a professional app designed to support real-world needs.
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!
Google calendar
by bgoogleme on 2020/01/29 17:39
I love google calendar for the smooth integration and consolidation of events from various aspects of my life. Also, I love to see my calendar in the month view on my phone where I can actually see the events coming up without clicking on a day (you cannot do this on the iPhone calendar). Google calendar is the biggest reason I use mostly google products. However, I’ve recently switched to iPhone and noticed that I no longer have the ability to see my daily tasks in the calendar. I loved the consolidation of my tasks and events in one place. It was like this with Samsung, but not the iPhone. Why is this? Also, after adding an event it takes you to another screen. You have to press ‘back’ in order to get to the month view again. Is there a way to take away this extra step? Otherwise, I love google everything.
Past due reminders list is short with no scrolling on iPad version
by TG64 on 2019/06/14 20:53
I’ve been using this calendar app for awhile and generally like it, but the last couple of updates have introduced some behavior that is frustrating me. For iPad version the list of past due reminders comes up in a very short box and doesn’t let me scroll down to look at the whole list. This works fine on the iPhone version. For iPhone version when I open a reminder to mark it complete there’s a moment when the screen goes black before the reminder comes 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.
Few Minor things that could help
by Kiara,qwertyuiop on 2020/03/08 18:23
1. Integrating Tasks with mobile: It seems strange that they would only show up on desktop 2. Task lists from events: It would be so awesome if I could make a list in task that is automatically connected to an event. I am a student so being able to connect to-do’s to my specific classes in calendar would be great 3. A notes section for each day: currently there is a notes section for each event in which I can add details and links which is great, but it would be awesome if there was a way to view all notes compiled for that day. So if I have some details for “class at 9am” and some for “meeting at 2pm” there would be one view that shows all the details for both these events together. This could also be done by integrating Keep and adding event/date tags that can be created in calendar.
Shuts down upon opening app
by kayyyce on 2018/03/16 06:59
I used to loveeee this app! I am a nursing student, I work part time and per diem, and i have a very busy social life as well. An organized calendar is essential for my world. And when I first downloaded this app it worked so great being able to connect it with my online account too. But the past few updates keep saying that its for “bug fixes” but for the past few weeks now, every time i open the app, its freezes for a few seconds and shuts down completely. I can’t even check my schedule to see whats coming up because it shut downs so quickly. And its absolutely frustrating. I did not want to write a bad review because, like I said, this app was a life savor before, but now I cant stand it. I was hoping to contact someone regarding the app but there is not contact information so writing this review is the closest I can get to it. So hopefully one of the developers or anyone working on this app cam read these bad reviews and hopefully fix the problems ASAP! Thanks.
Missing Just One Thing
by Sonnysretreat on 2018/11/02 20:16
Before I get to my biggest disappointment, I want to say that having the google app, calendar, and gmail app have made way more simpler. Planning, coordinating, and attending events, appointments, and even dates has been smooth. I can actually handle making a schedule. Now for the major critique. I don’t like the Apple Calendar because it’s not user friendly like the google calendar. HOWEVER, when looking at the Apple calendar the date is readily available on the face of the app prior to opening it. Google, please, modify the face of the app to do this as well. I’m sure there’s no law against it. Nor would it cause a major rift in the competition between Apple and Google. In my personal opinion as a consumer, it will generate more Google Calendar users than before because it’s improves the app to be more user friendly.
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.
Must-Have Best App ever
by aghakakajahaha on 2019/12/06 02:07
Recently I had checked google calendar and realized I had a meeting with my boss. I had totally forgotten about the meeting and made it on time thanks to google calendar. Google calendar is great to use because it has everything in one app. Google calendar allows you to add events, tasks, reminders, and even goals. Tasks are events that you plan on doing. Reminders are things that you want to remind yourself. Goals are things that you want to achieve like exercise. The cool thing is that you can share your events with other people so they know, For example if you’re having a party you can share the event with the party guests and you can add a note with the things people should bring. I promise you, google calendar is the best calendar ever.
Can’t Adjust Google Calendar Upcoming Event Alert Sound on IPhone
by every morning user on 2020/02/29 05:48
I would give the Google Calendar 5 stars until I realized that it makes a single rather muted sound on my iPhone when I have an upcoming event. Would never hear it if I wasn’t right next to my phone. When I used the iCloud calendar I could select from a number of upcoming alert sounds — some softer, some pretty loud—and repeat the sound if desired. But there is only one single “bleep” type alert sound for an event on the Google calendar. I like the Google calendar because I can print out my calendar from my desktop which I could not do using my iCloud calendar...maybe because my PC uses the Windows....so it’s a trade off. Right now I’m using both calendars on my iPhone...so I see duplicate calendar events but at least I have an audible iPhone alert that I can hear and a calendar I can print from my desktop.
Awesome app, some bugs
by oreosheeranx on 2019/07/14 19:39
Google calendar is a lifesaver. I’m a high school student and my life right now is packed with volunteering and sports and music, and having this calendar really helps me stay organized and look professional. The only problems I have are these: I’ve noticed that some of the dates that I put events in sometimes shift to a day before/after. I also can’t change the date of birthdays synced from my contacts directly on google calendar. I also wish that there were more colors and more variety to color the events, and also a way to organize which sort of event is which color. Otherwise, excellent app and I will definitely keep using it.
Great planner
by Rack Town on 2019/11/16 18:15
Functional, customizable, and sleek design. However, would love a few more customizable features to make it even more intuitive. I want the ability to pick which Details are displayed when creating a new event and which are hidden under the “More Options”. By pulling out the settings that I use most often, I could create events even more quickly. Also wish that the description I write for events was visible without having to click on the event to view details. Especially for events that take up more space in the daily/weekly view, I would love to be able to read the details from there. I use this space for reminders and to-do lists for specific events, but since that detail is not shown without clicking on the event I can forget things.
Almost...
by awakenwp on 2019/12/06 08:11
Two things about this calendar keep it from being my favorite... the lack of a full month calendar view (complete with visibility of the events added, not just dots with a list below)... and the fact that the app doesn’t show the day’s date. I would manage with the dot/list version of the month calendar if, when I looked at my phone and saw the app it gave me a quick reference of the days date, like the iphone calendar does. Incidentally, that single stand-out feature is the ONLY thing I like about the iPhone calendar... The full calendar view offered by TinyCalendar has me using theirs, for now, but I would prefer to use google calendar for the ease of sharing calendars right through the app, rather than having to do so via browser...
Current date is not prominently displayed
by Cj77532 on 2018/10/03 18:09
I wish this calendar was more like the apple calendar. The only reason I don’t use the Apple calendar is because my family needs a shared calendar and we don’t all have iPhones. The biggest problem I have with this app is that it does not display the date on the app icon (as Apple does), so I can quickly reference what day it is without needing to open the app. Maybe Apple has the rights to that or maybe it’s simply not an option, I don’t know. But if not, then it would be nice to have some kind of bright, vivid highlight on the current date once inside the app. Something the highlights the ENTIRE square, not just the number. Looking on my phone screen for the tiny number encircled by color is not instantaneous and requires some searching among the other dates and event color blocks.
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
Lots of bugs to be addressed
by caleblanc1 on 2018/04/30 01:04
As a college student, Google Calendars is my lifeline. But lately, I’ve encountered a ton of different issues with the app that make it really difficult to actually utilize the app’s functions. First off, it freezes ALL the time - swiping to a different week/month, adding new events, or editing current events will all freeze up the app for a significant chunk of time, sometimes upwards of a minute or more. Sometimes I’ll save an event and it’ll disappear the next time I open the app. Lately my problem has been the app quitting as soon as I open it. It’s making it extremely difficult to use this app, and frankly it’s become very unreliable to me as a student. I give it 3 stars because it used to work well and serve a good purpose, but if these bugs don’t get fixed soon, Google is about to lose a user.
I normally like this app, but...
by mzmyewski on 2018/02/06 21:54
I haven’t said anything because I keep thinking this issue will get resolved, but with today’s release I am still experiencing the same issue. For the last 3 or 4 releases, the app sometimes freezes upon opening it. This sometimes happens and sometimes does not. When the freeze does occur, it will last for up to 20 seconds or so. When it becomes “unstuck”, I can only swipe through the calendar for approximately 4 weeks and the app freezes again for several seconds. This happens on both my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6S Plus. I am not sure if this is a problem with the app itself or if it is some sort of communication issue with Google, but it gets rather annoying since I use this app for my business.
Deletion, Assignment of Other Calendars, & Snoozing
by DezSielen on 2018/04/13 12:50
I would like to be able to snooze a goal and have it pop up again in a preset time, like 5-30 minutes. I can select “later” but I can never find it again. I also think it would be beneficial if we could delete multiple goals/events at one time, very much like we do with photos, where we can edit and select multiple items, and then delete. Lastly, when using the app version of the google calendar I cannot choose which of my multiple calendars an event is added to. This means that I have to try and remember each color I assigned each color and add the color accordingly manually. That’s a bummer. Therefore, the calendar is not as helpful as I had hoped. It’s also very colorful when looking at the day by day scrolling view and looks very busy.
Recent updates make app impossible to use
by Amallard09 on 2018/01/18 11:42
This app used to be great and I used to use it all the time. The recent updates make it very difficult to use now. The little loading circle in the middle is constantly running. It never goes away. Ever. I have even tried deleting and reinstalling the app. It’s still there. Just non stop spinning. On top of that, the biggest issue is that I can’t create an event. To create an event, you touch the + button in the bottom right hand corner. It gives you 3 options, create a goal, a reminder, or an event. The problem is that once you actually select that + button, the “create an event” button is masked right on top the + button which toggles the menu open and close, while the other buttons are nice and above it. As a result, if I try to select the create an event button, it just toggles the menu closed again. Very frustrating that I can’t realistically use this app on iOS anymore.
FIX THIS PLEASE⬇️
by St.Mark Youth Ministry on 2019/12/20 18:39
We need to use google calendar to help us in our youth ministry but we are having a hard time figuring out the fastest and most convenient way to allow the youth to subscribe to our calendar. We tried using the permission link but it takes them to a webpage and even when it asks them to download the app (which is rear), they would have to go back to the link and press on it again after the app is downloaded and it doesn’t always work that way either. We are requesting a fast, easy, and convenient way to press on a link that prompts users to downloading the app and then subscribes automatically. (Notice: we have tried using the “invite a specific person” feature but that also did not work)
Get it together Google
by Mama keesh on 2018/04/20 10:46
I’m on the market for new calendar app. We are a family of five with two working parents, a high schooler, middle schooler, and elementary schooler...all with activities, events, and travel. Have a collaborative calendar environment (that works...hint, hint Google) is an absolute must for my family. Minus the youngest crew member, we all have google accounts so google calendar was initially a life saver as I provided that collaborative environment we needed to keep track of all the activity. At this point I’m only giving the app one star because I can’t give it zero. It freezes, is lagging, changes times, shuts down...all functions I’m certain aren’t a compliment to an app. We use a calendar because we are BUSY so using a calendar that takes a LOT of time to use is counterproductive and the reason why I’m on the hunt for sometime better. Wish you hadn’t let me down Google. You were so good to me at first and now your just a bum.
🤩
by Cyzvcfyj on 2018/04/06 11:51
〰️ UPDATE 〰️ The app is working and it’s phenomenal! I’m pretty blown away by the features, to be honest. The fact that it can find time for me to do more things and automatically program goals!? I love it! Maybe the other calendar apps I used really sucked, or maybe this one is just that awesome (when it works) CHEERS! 🥂 - I wish this app would work because the one time it did, my calendar looked so great. But I mean, literally, that ONE time it worked when I first downloaded it. Granted, I’ve only had it for two days, but I’ve only been able to use it once. I saw that it managed to sync all of my work calendars and trips automatically, which again, amazing...just wish it would work!
Missing Desktop Functionality
by Aphetoros on 2018/09/17 17:13
Hey google- Workflow issue here. I should be able to do everything on the app that I can do on the PC. This ONE feature has caused me to lower my rating from 5 to 2 stars, so I’d appreciate it if you’d fix it. ON PC I can select an event and change it from one calendar to another. On mobile, I have to copy it to the new calendar and then delete it from the old calendar to avoid duplicate events. This wouldn’t be so bad if it was once in a while, but it happens every time an app or email adds something to my calendar on iphone because iphone inputs a default calendar. As someone who has to put a massive amount of events into a calendar from a mobile device, this will cause HOURS of extra work. Please add a feature to change an event’s calendar, even if it’s a roundabout way such as a single button that simultaneously duplicates the event to the selected calendar and deletes the old event. OR a confirmation dialog after “copy to...” that says, “Delete original event? [Yes] [No]” box. Heck, add a, “Are you sure you want to delete this event? [Yes] [No]” box with a “[] Remember my choice for next time.” feature. OTHERWISE: Great calendar. Really useful. Exactly what I need. If this is changed, my review will change to 5 stars and be updated accordingly.
Fine
by ok you yes you reader on 2020/06/17 19:14
I have google meet for my meetings now and it says you could schedule a meeting with google app but I looked around and can’t really find how to do that but over all I think it’s cool and also shows all my assignments in google classroom on there due dates and I read your reviews too about the update being bad and so when it pops up I would actually say yes because I want to see if the app read your reviews their selfs so I want to see if they in proved the in proof but if it goes bad like you people say I will totally delete the app and re download it so I might start over but like I said over all I like this app so that’s why I would re download it and once I say yes I will totally write another review about my new experience so yes bye......
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”.
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.
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.
Please integrate with Tasks & add calendars
by Becxcbb on 2020/05/13 21:09
I would love this app much more if it integrated with Google Tasks like the web one does. I want to plan out a day/week but don’t want to put “tasks” on my calendar as events. I primarily use my ipad for everything and dislike having to go back and forth from it to a laptop. Also, the ability to add calendars in the calendar app would be very helpful. Again, primarily an ipad user and don’t usually have a laptop/desktop to go back to. One more thing that would be helpful - when setting the repeat option on an event/reminder, it would be helpful if we could customize it to choose the days of the week instead of just “daily”. Some things I don’t want to do on the weekends but want to spend time doing every Mon-Fri.
