Hey everyone, this is my first post. I've tried to search for an answer to my problem but cant seem to find one...in case i missed it i do apologize if im asking a question thats already been answered.
Ive had my droid for a couple of days now and for the most part im happy with it. Heres my situation...
On all of my old phones...none of which were smartphones...I used my calendar to keep track of events. The way i would set up events is if for example I had an appointment at 2 pm so I would set it for say 12 pm with whatever info I needed to remind myself ahead of time what it was for. In some cases my calendar would be used as an alarm to wake me up in the morning as well.
My problem, which I have read a lot of people complained about, is that the notifications on the droid calendar are short and not very good at getting your attention. What i'm used to is when an event comes up my phone will either have a ringtone or vibration go off until I dismiss it, which made it a great alternative to the alarm clock when needed. Ive tried to use some of the different apps that ive read about but most are designed for other uses than what I need (sorry i didnt keep track of all of the ones i tried to be specific). A widget of some sort would be cool but mainly I just want a calendar that will get my attention like my old phones did. Since ive had my droid ive missed out on events because I didnt hear or feel my phone since the notifications are so short.
Any suggestions would be great. Tried to be specific enough so I hope that helps lol.
