    Different colors for calendar events

    Does anyone know of an application designed for the calendar that allows the user to chose different colors for the events, similar to how the Palm's calendar worked?

    Only way I could do it was to set up multiple calendars on Google calendar. Then sync them all together. I have one for work, personal, meetings, my wife, etc. All show up on one calendar with multiple colors.

    Can you give us details on how you did that? Sync the calendar? Did you do it on the phone or on google and what steps you took?

    since the phone lives in the cloud, everything is controlled online. if there are features and/or functionality that the phone can do, but you can't control, you can control it online. anything that you find your phone can't do, you should check online to see if you can do it there.

    all of your calendar subscriptions and email labeling and forwarding is handled online.

    currently, google doesn't support changing colors for specific events. you can create as many calendars as you want (online), but I'm not sure how you would force Outlook and Google Calendar Sync to point to what calendar. I think you would have to manage all of that online, which would be a nightmare.a

    In Google Calendar on your computer, go to the left hand side. Select my calendars and create. From there you will will have options to set up another calendar, choose color etc. Then go to your Droid Google calendar, choose menu, and then my calendars. Make sure the calendars you created are selected.

    Has anyone tried this? Does it work? Before I set up multiple calendars I'd like to know.

    If you're serious about calendar integration on your phone, you MUST download the following widget(s), both made by the same amazing developer:

    Pure Calendar Widget - lists your upcoming agenda/tasks from your calendar. Lets you choose how big you want the calendar to be, so you can have only a few days, or over a week of events displayed.

    Pure Grid Calendar Widget - great if you want a full screen calendar on one of your home screens. I use this to show colored bars througout the month for all of my different events (check out the sample pics in the market).

    These are both paid widgets, but I can't express how amazing they are. I recommend them to everybody who uses google calendar.
