    "ACalendar is a calendar app for android devices. It puts all of your needed information in one place at your fingertips. It also keeps such info private unless you specify otherwise. The free version is quite adaptable but if something more extensive is needed there is a pay platform."

    "This app is a great organizer. Although there are similar apps for free, if an app is worthwhile, I'll gladly shell out some cash, especially if it makes me more productive, like this app does. Syncs with Google, and worth at least a few of the extras that are available."

    "Great update to generic calendar apps. I wasn't able to find it in App Store, so I guess it is for Android only. Regardless, it has many nice features, user-friendly, nice support team. Pro version (which is paid) has even more features. If you have a busy schedule, definitely give it a try! "

    "Informant is good from a general look perspective, but when it comes to practice it falls woefully short. Syncing and weather (and premium) has a hefty price tag, and there are many different bugs that still remain in the design. It's useful, but not totally practical at this point. It wasn't thrilling to me at all."

    "I've been using Calvetica for awhile as an alternate to the default Calendar app on my phone. This new version is not for me, though. They keep making the interface more cluttered, it runs much too slow, and its too hard to find things using it. It is no longer worth it for me to use as my calendar, I will be looking elsewhere in the future."

    "A friend had recommended this calendar app to me so I was curious to try it. Can't say I was overly impressed but it did the job. It seems to have been put together with a business client in mind and I found the pre-sets a bit rigid. It doesn't always adapt very well to some of the things I want to add to my calendar, if they don't exactly fit the format. So I have to think of a way to make my events fit in the mold. Which sometimes makes me waste time. But I'm sure it works for people who have other needs than me. Middle of the road I'd say."
