MonthlyCalendar (or "Mon Cal", fantasy french for "my calendar") is an Android calendar app that focuses on a good monthly view. I wrote it because I got a HTC Desire in 2010/05 and did not find a good monthly calendar app back then.
MonthlyCalendar might be for you if you nod your head to all of the following:
- You really like the monthly calendar view, and are not afraid of small fonts
- You never use a weekly perspective
- You only use a daily perspective to get to the calendar events
- You do not use reminders (or have a different app for this)
- You do not use event series (or have a different app for this)
- Bonus: You have appointments in several timezones
So, what makes MonthlyCalendar special?
- A great monthly view, with full event titles (line-wrapped, not truncated)
- Daily view just zooms into a portion of the monthly view; no additional screen
- Contacts' birthdays are automatically integrated
- Home screen widget (4x1 or 2x2) lists events of the day, and nothing more
- Search function for event title and description
- Funky gestures for "jump to today", "jump to date", "settings", etc.
- Freely configurable font sizes, date formats
MonthlyCalendar is GPL'd open source software, and it is and will always remain free.
At the bottom of the screen, I have placed a small Google Ads advertisement. It should be harmless enough, and in addition you can deactivate it for one week in the preferences. If you are a programmer, you can even remove the ads in each version completely, as the source is freely available.
There are absolutely no guarantees on this software. I do everything the best I can, but in the unlikely event that the app crashes your phone, your life and your bank account, it is still your own fault.
MonthlyCalendar 0.0.6 was released in May 2012, targetted at Android 4.0 and tested mainly on a Galaxy Nexus. A legacy 0.0.5 version for Android 2.2+ (but not 3.0) is also available. For a bit of history, the very first release was in August 2010. I would call the current state a middle-stage alpha.
Note: As of now, please download only if you are feeling experimental! The app might be unintuitive. There might be bugs.
Tested on various emulators, HTC Desire, LG P350 Optimus (both Android 2.2), and Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.0). If you a have a different phone and something does not work, please let me know so I can fix it.
The easiest way for you to get MonthlyCalendar: On the Android market, just search for "monthly calendar". Alternatively, you can download an apk file (and get some "first use instructions") by going to the next section, download.
