    Calendar app?

    The stock calendar app on my new MAXX doesnt have holidays listed, its just normal days. I saw no settings that would allow me to "show holidays"

    Is there a calendar app that has holidays on it.?

    I looked at a couple but without downloading a bunch of apps to find one I figured I woould see what you users are using. LOL

    TIA

    Well, the problem is that there really isn't a one-app-does-all for the issue. I found "Holiday Calendar 2011-2012", which appears to be fairly encompassing, but there could easily be others. I haven't done the research, but since your phone calendar syncs to the Google calendar online, perhaps the better solution is to see if there's a tool that will update the Google calendar and then it'll just sync over. For me, I have my Google calendar sync to Outlook and found a way to add US holidays to Outlook so they synced right over to the phone.

    Assuming you're syncing to Google calendar...On your pc, with Calendar open, Go to Settings>Click on the Calendar tab and scroll to Other Calendars and check Holidays. This option may be available other places as well, but I know you can find it there.

    Your stock calendar is Google's calendar. Login to the web based version and check your settings. I have holidays on mine enabled and have no problem seeing them on my Maxx. For an even better calendar app check out business calendar free.

    You should have the option to select "US Holidays" as one of your calendars in your Calendar app. If it's not an optional calendar, go to your desktop and make sure its enabled in your browser.

    Great answers are always found in these forums! I was wondering where that setting was at for holidays. Thanks.

    I know these are older posts, but you seem knowledgeable, so I'd like to raise a calendar question. The stock calendar on my Razr Maxx has a limited range of repeat options. Is there a good app or widget that extends that list. For example, quarterly?
