                                                                  The success of our day is largely dependent on the quality of our planning. Not to miss out anything in their to-dos, some people prefer to make a list of upcoming tasks in a notebook, while others have long started using digital technology solutions.

                                                                  Calendar applications are some of the main tools that are worth using to organize our life and plan your time carefully.

                                                                  Many people have switched to specific tools; however, there are still some who do not use calendars on a daily basis. They may find some applications uncomfortable to use, non-functional, or expensive.

                                                                  In this article, we are going to check out the best calendars apps to help you stay organized.

                                                                  1. Cal Calendar

                                                                    Cal Calendar has recently appeared on the market of mobile applications (Android, iOS). It is the brainchild of the development team of Any.do that features impressive functionality and well-thought-out design.

                                                                    The application comes with many great features, including support for Exchange and Google Calendar, widgets, voice recording, and many more.

                                                                    Cal Calendar has direct integration with Any.Do To-Do List, which gives you a unique tandem of two applications.

                                                                    Apart from its extended functionality, Cal Calendar is easy to use. The creation of events is very simple and fast.

                                                                    What is more, depending on the name of the event, the application automatically adds contacts and geolocation data to the entry description. You can even import your lists and entries from Any.do.

                                                                    Cal Calendar is a great option for any type of user. It is very convenient and doesn’t overcomplicate the mode of display.

                                                                    Another good thing is that this tool is available for free, so you can use it without spending a dime for the software.

                                                                    Available for iOS and Android

                                                                    2. Google Calendar

                                                                      Google Calendar is the official calendar for Android devices that has been tested out by many users around the globe. If you are right now trying to get away from it, consider changing your mind.

                                                                      Since this application is installed on most Android devices by default, many users think that there is nothing special in this program. They are wrong.

                                                                      Advertising

                                                                      Google has been updating its calendar for quite a few years, and now it comes in Material Design with advanced event features, direct integration into other Google services (for example, supports reminders and Google Now), and comes with Exchange support.
