Do not use this app! 1/5
By Byron Farmer
I used to be a fan of this app. That stopped when I didn’t check my reminders for a few days and they piled up. When I did go to the app to check and go through my past reminders it freezes up and closes each time. I have deleted and re downloaded the app and the same thing happens. This is unacceptable! I have important things in my Google calendar. I am now only using my reminder app through Apple .
List are needed 2/5
I want a check list for my task and I want to be able to change the color of the task based on the category.
Service restored 5/5
Update - Google Team! Thank you for listening to feedback and patching the app again to fix the lag/crash issues! Now it's back to being a 5 star app!
Especially on ios14.7.1 Lags, crashes, hogs memory, takes forever to load. No longer useful for business!
Unfortunately, I am unable to load google calendar with my email address since the latest iOS update. Bummer too because I used this app daily.
Doesn’t sync with sports calendars well 3/5
I’ve had to delete and resubscribe to SportsEngine or 360Player or PlayMetrics calendars for my children’s sports multiple times. Why doesn’t it sync when those calendars have changes or edited events?
Absolutely a logistical lifesaver 4/5
I use google cal every day to schedule out my life. Because I categorize event types by color, my only complaint is that there are not more colors or shades of the current colors to choose from.
Not super user friendly tbh 1/5
I’ve been using a calendar app called TimeTree up until this year because of how easy it made syncing my schedules with my roommates, but now my partner uses google calendar and to make it easy on him I just switched over.
Honestly? I hate it. The design and interface of this app are just so convoluted and confusing. I wouldn’t be using it if it were for my partner.
The only really good thing I like about it is it auto fills events from my Gmail ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Lagging and Freezing ALL THE TIME 3/5
This app was amazing but now I can’t even get it to open. It takes forever to load and once it finally does, when I move the calendar a bit just to see a different time or day it freezes! I constantly update it to see if the glitch can be fixed but it’s not. Please fix this !!!!!
Very frustrated how inconvenient it is for birthday reminders.
Still needs work 3/5
I just installed Google Calendar and I don’t like how in the month view it cuts off my work jobs. I just typed in a job which consisted of 4 words. Google calendar on the month view limits it to 1 line and cuts off the rest of the job title so I don’t know what it says. Please give the option to have the other words go onto the next few lines. ONLY limit it to 1 line if you have multiple appointments for the same day. I also made Google Calendar a widget on the top of my iPhone in wide format with the month on the left and entries on the right. The month is SO small it hurts my eyes to read. The month font can EASILY be enlarged and bolded. July can be increased so the Y from July is all the way to the W of Wednesday. The month should be followed by the day so “July 7”. Please increase the date font maybe make it 1 font larger and bold. Under tomorrow it has my work task cut off followed by “…” This should NOT get cut off but go onto the next line! It would be nice to have the ability to modify and customize the font sizes to make it easier to read. You should look at how the Netflix iOS app looks under the category coming soon for inspiration. Look at its text/categories and how easy it is to read. I’m a Graphic Designer and Google Calendar was obviously not visualized by a designer. It would also be nice to be able to select days in the month view similar to temperature readings on Google search. Do a search for “temperature in Arizona”. You can select individual days making a gray rectangle. Do the same in Google Calendar month. I was just contacted to work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week. On Google Calendar I would like to be able to long press thereby selecting a cell and let go to make an entry. If I long press select and drag I would like to be able to select multiple days in a row into the future or drag from Friday back to Wednesday let go and then enter the details which are exactly the same for all those days. Right now I have to do each and every day one by one which takes 3x as long :( if you do this the vertical day lines between all 3 days should be removed so the job description is listed once going across for all 3 days. My job for 4 days was just canceled. I have to quickly delete them and find dragging from right to left does not work like iPhones work. You have to instead drag from left to right to delete then have a really tiny delete confirmation on the bottom I have difficulty reading and tapping. Don’t need this double confirmation and Google should stick to iPhone right to left. The delete line should be made larger and have a large RED trash can like Apple Messages app. When you type in an address you have to go to for an appointment can Google calendar use a small Google map of that location and show you where you are in relationship to it? This would be VERY helpful. Google calendar used to show me a picture of the address I was going to when I entered that address and it abruptly stopped working, please fix. Can you make a way to text message and email someone your calendar either on their iPhone or Android so they can see my busy schedule and I can share it with them so we can make plans? Otherwise I have to take screen shots. A live link to my calendar I share with someone would be ideal so it would update for them as I add to days I have work or appointments and not require them to have the app installed as some family members are not tech savvy. The person I send my calandra to should ONLY have “READ ONLY” access.
I want the old app d design back 1/5
I get this app icon mixed up with all the other Google apps.
Fix repeat customization. 2/5
You used to be able to customize an event that repeats on certain days, of a week. Like, I could set up an event to only repeat Monday through Friday- and repeat it every week through to a certain date. Now when I’m putting in a reminder for the time to pick up my son from his 2.5 hour pre k program or my daughters extracurriculars- in the customization window I can’t set it to only certain days of a week- it puts it in every day- Sunday-Saturday...
And the customization only offers a section for every 1-99 days, weeks, months, or years. This is really disappointing and makes event planning/ schedule coordinating difficult.
Really Useful! 5/5
By Noah Simonton
I’m a high school sophomore, and I’ve had trouble with keeping my assignments/tests organized. Google Calendar really changed my life.
I tried to use paper and pencil, but I got lazy overtime and just stopped using it. I use my phone literally every day, so I thought to myself, “Is there an organizational app that might help with high school?” And sure enough, I come across GC. It’s my 4th week of school, and I have great grades because of my assignments and tests!!! Thank you for creating an app like this! Plus, my school uses Chromebooks and Google Accounts, so I can use the website on my computer and it syncs the same data from my phone just in case I can’t get my phone out in class. I LOVE THIS APP SO MUCH!!! Thanks for reading!
סידור הימים בעברית 2/5

Notifications are unreliable 1/5
I’ve missed a few zoom appointments as a result of notifications not being sent to my phone. I’ve followed the directions from the documentation, read how-to blogs, and I’ve watched youtube videos on how to solve this issue. All of them give the same instructions for the most part. Make sure it’s the recent version, make sure notifications are allowed on the app and on your device, etc. None of them fixed the problem.
If this app works for you, congrats. But my experience has been brutal, and I’ll never use this app again. I can’t trust it with its consistent unreliability when it comes to notifications.
App icon 3/5
Google calendar syncs seamlessly with other programs. I am happy with app performance. Defaults for adding events do a bit too much automatically, but I have learned to navigate that, thereby preventing multiple duplicate notifications, etc.
The one thing they can’t seem to get right is having the current date display on the icon. Optimally it would display date and day of the week. The first place I look for the date is my iPhone screen. So I use my trusty Calendar.
I use this app for all my schedules. Please add it to work with Apple car play
Can’t make an Event 1/5
Whenever I try to create an event, I press the button but it does absolutely nothing. I can create reminders and goals, but not events.
Can’t change calendar 3/5
I have multiple calendars setup (personal, work, etc) but if I click on an event, there is no option to change which calendar it’s on. For example, I can create an event on my work calendar by mistake, I can’t reassign it to my personal calendar.
Bug fix - Duplicating an event copies everything over except notifications. 4/5
Bug fix - Duplicating an event copies everything over except notifications.
One request 1/5
My only request is to allow events to be extended, for example from 1 hour to 2 hours, AFTER the event has been created, by clicking and dragging. During creation of an event this can be done but not after. That is unless one clicks on “edit” and goes through a few steps which is almost archaic for an iPhone. Calendar 5 by Readdle allows this.
Categories please 😁 4/5
I like this app! It’s simple and provides me what I need. But I have one request: CATEGORIES. I would love the option of creating my own categories so when I create events they will be color coded into their category. I make do by remembering the colors I’ve chosen to categorize all my calendar events. Otherwise - Great calendar app!
Needs a better weekly view 3/5
This is great in that it syncs across multiple devices and helps our family stay organized. However I find the weekly view frustrating. Instead of being a list that shows all of the upcoming events (with no real segmentation between the days, and you have to scroll up or down to see the whole week), i wish it was similar to the month view. It would be nice if all 7 days for the week were in boxes on one screen (maybe 4 in one column and 3 in the other), with your events showing up just like they do on the month view.
Not very satisfied 😐 2/5
This was my favorite calendar app but when I went to check my schedule this am everything was gone. EVERYTHING from the past year and all my future events are gone also. Now I have to start from scratch and I’m seriously debating using a different app if there’s a chance of this happening again. I use this app to help with my time management not to waste time re-entering my schedule/events. Get it together google.
Goals WAS great 3/5
Goals was a great tool, but recently if I need for the calendar to reschedule a session to "Later" it defaults to "no more good times available" and then "finding time"?!? Despite PLENTY of options for similar time slots in the upcoming week, It NEVER finds a time. I have to go in and reschedule the goal manually which, for me, defeats the point. The UI is also incredibly slow to respond. I was very satisfied with the GOALs ai feature (so helpful), but it's become useless now. iCal of all apps is less glitchy.
What’s the date? 4/5
I really like your app, but wish that the icon on my phone showed the current date. Other calendar apps can do that. Why can’t yours?
Date on home screen 3/5
In general I love this app. Love that I can color coordinate activities & appts for each person in my family and share said activities with each child. But, WHEN OH WHEN will you make it so the date on the home screen is today’s date and not always 31 ?!?!? It’s seriously frustrating. I’m lowering my rating each time I review. Same review. Just lowered it. Why can’t the icon show today’s date? Does Apple have that locked out??
My previous review from above still stands and I have a new issue. I would like to be able to change the font size in the calendar. It is not affected by the general text sizing setting on my iPhone. I’m guess this is because Google & Apple don’t play well together. It is not even possible to change it in any way- not just the easy way.
Love it but.. 4/5
I just wish they added a way to see/manage your lists like on the desktop :(
Excellent calendar 5/5
Love all the details I can add to keep my busy days organized. Easy to use across all my devices.
Over all pretty good. 4/5
However I really wish the app icon itself would show the date, similarly how the Apple calendar does. I hate that it is always set to 31. This is useless & unhelpful. Why must I click on the calendar to see today's date?! I would probably delete this app & stick to the Apple Calendar except that it forces me to default to Apple Maps instead of Google Maps or Waze. Ugh!
App is glitching... 1/5
When I click to add an event, it doesn't bring up the event section to add it. It kept doing it until I quit out and opened the app again.
Don’t like app
So👄 I want to say this is you haft to get to know it I know it doesn’t it look good but it will change your life 🐍
Update? Changes? 2/5
By cant uaw very upset
I have loved this app since I first got it but within the last week it doesn’t let me add new items like before. I used to be able to pick the color for the event. What happened to that ?
Add These 3/5
A way to get an alert that you already have an event when you are placing a new event’s time in your calendar. Like, it pops up saying this time slot is full. That way it avoids double booking.
Also, perhaps a way to sync the iPhone’s reminders app with the calendar could be a productive solution.
One last thing, a color wheel to use with the events. The colors provided don’t always do the job.
Seamless gmail integration to add to not just tasks but as events and goals too.
Have an automatic process where snoozed gmails can get scheduled into the calendar to reply to your emails in a timely fashion. Like to schedule your emails for a later date (current snooze function) and THEN have that date and time inserted into the calendar.
Absolute trash 1/5
By Mr. Thoughtful
This app is poop. Except for the graphics and picture, functionally is poor
Best one so far. 5/5
By Induk Hwang
I have tried several cal apps...but in the end, g.cal is the one that I come back to repeatedly. One thing : for korean version, 11-12 am(pm) the numbers(11 and 12) are not visible on the time table.

It’s very cool
Good but lacking functionality 4/5
It’s decent enough, but lacks some really helpful features. For example, I can’t move events from one calendar to another. This may only be with auto generated events (eg flights from emails), but those are the ones I most want to add to our shared family calendar.
Guests can only add people, not modify the event. 4/5
A difference between the android version, and the Apple version, is that on desktop and android Augustus given a permission option to modify the event or see the guest list. On the Apple version the only option is that the guest can add people. It makes it a little bit more challenging to coordinate with close guests.
I love google calendar but my past events from 2 years all of them got deleted until 2020. How can I fix this issue? I want my past record back :(
Missing and removed features 2/5
I hate that on the app, I am unable to view the whole year at a glance or to easily scroll back to previous years. I don’t know why they removed this feature. Additionally, they also removed the ability to set an end date to repeating events! If I want an event to repeat every week for example, but only for 4 weeks, I have to add the event individually or add it repeating and then go to delete the future events I don’t need.
Making it on Apple Watch 5/5
I love using this app for my day to day life but I would like to have it on my Apple Watch for quick access! Thank you!
Could use improvements. 2/5
I really want to like this app. For me it’s extremely hard to find a calendar app I like. There are some relatively minor but extremely annoying things about this app. First is the new widget designs. I prefer the old one that didn’t have the two buttons. I wish there were a way to choose one with and without buttons. I also don’t understand why the custom colors I use for my calendars don’t look the same on desktop vs. on the app?? Also, apparently there was a feature included a while ago that allowed you to manually change whether the app was in light or dark mode, entirely independent from what your phone is set at. Now that feature is completely GONE and the only way I can use the app in light/dark mode is to change the mode my phone is in too! Completely ridiculous. I expect more from a multi-billion dollar company.
One thing 4/5
By la ugh
When you invite yourself to and event you’re not able to answer if you’re going or not? Can you add it so you can please
Good App But Some Room For Improvement 3/5
Love the interconnectivity with Google Tasks. Easy to use and decent veratility in terms of different views. I like 3 day view as it provides a clear picture without looking cluttered. However, could use several improvements. Definitely needs more widget options. At least a large sized widget. Also ideally, one in the Notification Center where you can mark tasks as complete. Should include more options for tasks. One of the best features of Google calendar is that you are able to view tasks along with events. Should be able to adjust in Google calendar the length of tasks (change to 15 min duration). More ability to edits and create tasks in Google calendar would be great. I think a key would be improved widgets with slightly better design or more options/customization.
Are you kidding me? 1/5
I spent hours adding reminders for auto pays, random bills due, etc. trying to get my life on track and make beneficial improvements to my day… only for the app to update the next week and delete all of my info. I have tried every troubleshooting tip I can find to no avail. I am so frustrated I could cry. Garbage, garbage app
I love the agenda portion of this calendar, but I’d like to see more flair options added. Doctor appointment, Birthday, Party, etc The flair makes it so much easier to see what you have going on.
Legacy Widget Removed 1/5
The legacy Widget allowed for way more visibility on all events over a three day plus period - surprised that the team would remove this in favor of the modern format that lists just 2 events.
