    Right now I'm running with "smooth calendar" since it shows the three next upcoming events and not just today like the widget that comes stock on the Moto Droid. Are there any other goods ones that shows a more distant outlook than just today?

    I'm using Android Agenda Widget and love it. You can find it in the Android Market.

    Check out Pure Calendar Widget and/or Pure Grid Calendar. They're both very nice and well worth the money. One or the other may be all you need. Pure Calendar Widget satisfies my scheduling needs. It will search your calendar up to 6 months out.

    I like Calwidget. It will display your next 3 or 4 events, and todays date. And you can make it transparent.

    I loved that widget! But I can't get it to work no matter what I do ever since the update.....I emailed the dev, but still haven't gotten anywhere. It won't sync with the calendar. Only the corporate calendar....Oh well.

    If you have any ideas, PLEASE let me know! thanks!

    Hmmm... wonder if it's having conflicts with another app. I haven't had any problems with mine and I've got 3 calendars synced (including corp calendar). I've got version 1.0.3 running. Have you tried downloading the old version to see if it works for you?

    I personally have seen less battery consumption when using calwidget compared to pure grid calendar. But even with that, neither widget really uses that much power so its not that big of a deal.

    I would also think it depends on how often it refreshes. I have agenda widget set to only refresh every 12 hours, so I haven't noticed any battery consumption change since installed. I guess it depends on how often you add events to your calendar as to how often you want it to refresh. I'm only familiar with the agenda widget though, so I can't comment on any others.

    Does it(they) show up in Running Services? And if so how many MB of memory does it(they) use?

    I don't see it in there now. But I was wondering which calendar used more power earlier so I tried to test both calwidget and pure grid. I'm not positive that calwidget is better on battery, its just my experience.

    I actually did try the older version and ran into the same issue. So, I'm guessing you're correct in that it's conflicting with another app somewhere. But I don't have much on my phone to begin with. So, I'm not real sure where to begin. I'm just going to stick with CalWidget for now, reluctantly. Thanks for the info ;)

    I haven't tried the others mentioned. I use S2 Calendar Widget. It has customizable colors, borders, and backgrounds. Displays this month, or next month, or last month, etc. Can use multiple widgets to get a 6 month calendar page. Comes in 2x1, 2x2, 2x3. Haven't seen it on battery use.

    Another vote for Android Agenda widget.

    Running the 4X4 calendar widget with no problems. Have not noticed any power drain (I set it to update 1-2 times daily). Has both my personal gmail and corporate calendars on there, with ability to add additional calendars. The reminders work perfectly well, and for conference calls it's great - click on the event and it pops up (or from the reminder) and then can click on the phone number to dial.

    Cool thing is they've recently added Astrid tasks. So I got rid of my Astrid widget and just add/delete tasks right from my agenda widget (shows Astrid first in the widget).

    Only small complaint is adding or scheduling an event has one default calendar option, which I set to my corp calendar. My less frequently used personal calendar I can manage by clicking on the Retro Date widget on my home screen.

    My favorite calendar apk

    I love using Outlook so I can see in text each day's plan and make easy edits if needed. I search until someone recommended Jorte and I love it. The only shortcoming is no full screen view but the dev says he is working on that as an update. You can get it from the app store.
