I haven’t been getting notifications 1/5
This is ridiculous
Most important app on my phone 5/5
GCal is the reason I walk around with a phone. Great app. One giant request: can we please get meeting invite notifications directly on lock screen AS WELL AS the ability to accept them. Thanks again!
notifications don't work consistently 1/5
This is a MAJOR flaw. I *try* to use my calendar to help me remember important events. I set multiple notifications so I don't forget anything. Notifications are turned on on my devices (banners, sounds, *and* badges) to ensure I don't miss anything, but the notifications often don't happen. What's the point of a calendar and notifications if the notifications never occur?? This problem exists on multiple (Apple) devices. Incredibly frustrating!
Google calendar works great on my computer and is very convenient and helpful. However, on my phone? Nope. I try to load a calendar from my other google account and it just doesn’t show any of my events. It doesn’t help if I can only access my calendar stuff on my computer and not my phone. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time with the google calendar app.
Slow to load multiple calendars and… 2/5
It is PAINFULLY slow to load other calendars once you select them. I usually end up having to close the app and reopen it in order for someone else’s schedule to show up after checking their name.
Also - I can’t believe there still isn’t an ability to add additional calendars within the mobile app. I work with thousands of people. Sometimes I have to book a meeting with someone whose calendar I haven’t “subscribed” to yet. Why do I need to be on the desktop version in order to subscribe to a new calendar?
Icon Feedback 5/5
Love the app, but it would be great if the app icon displayed the correct date. Instead of just 31 at all time.
Ok app but could use an update 3/5
Something about this calendar app is off… When I add something to my calendar, it will sometimes change the date around completely. This makes the calendar unreliable. I also miss the ease of using different colors.

I’ve lost my calendar and I’m freaking out
Please stop moving the start/end times! 4/5
It’s extremely annoying when I move the end time and the start time changes to AM, or the end time moves to the previous day. It always guesses wrong and I wish it would just stay in place so I don’t have to play whack a mole
Better than Apple’s 4/5
The Google calendar app for iPhone is much better than Apple’s calendar app, however, it’s better on Android. The widget functionality is far too limited to be of much help. It would be great if you could interact with the widget without opening the app. It would also be great if there were larger widget options where you could see more of your day in a “quick view.”
Great except 4/5
By Linzay dubya
I had been using the Apple calendar app with my Google calendar synced, and this was a major upgrade. The only thing the Apple calendar app has on this is that the current day and date is face up as the app icon. Would love to see that with this app!!!
Time increments? 1/5
You can only set events on five minute increments. Pretty annoying and makes it kind of useless for me on the iPhone. Pixel had no issue putting something in at “6:48” for example. Unfortunate.
Restricted to iPhone and iPad only 1/5
The only reason it got a bad review is because they have this app restricted to ios only. There is no good reason to restrict a software like this. In fact I would find this a lot more useful on Mac while working
✔︎ my favorite, but no icon badge for date ▓º 4/5
Nice list display: scroll through event view, see days highlighted on month at left. No icon badge: use home page widget instead. New event repetitions primitive at best. Support? 🤣 None. (And what’s this “ [㉛]” as an icon? 😝 At least make it Omar’s 5🤚🏼)
Needs to be able to share on apple calendar 4/5
Google calendar is amazing! I love it also because it can sync with my apple calendar; however, events that were made on google calendar are not able to be shared with another person on the apple calendar! I really wish they would make it so that events made on google calendar that shows up on apple calendar can be shared with another person through the apple calendar app! That would make it much more convenient.
I use to love this app but they changed it now since I have times scheduled from 8p to 4am now they overlap and show up onto the next day and it gets confusing with the appointments I have scheduled for that day coming up. Sooo frustrating. So now I’m looking for something new that works right. They need to just change the program back. Why fix something that works already ugghh!!!!
As a person with ADHD, I think it would be extremely helpful when looking at the jumbled month-view, to have the boxes of the past days turn gray… as it is now with the blue circle on today’s date and *all* the boxes being an ocean of white background, I find it difficult to tell what day is today on a quick glance, because I have so many events that that repeat weekly.
I’ve used this app for maybe almost a decade, and it is helpful, but I’d like to find my place quicker to focus on what’s ahead. Thanks.
Number in icon should be Today’s Date 2/5
If it weren’t for the fact that the google app always tells me today is the 31, it would be my primary calendar app. Would also be nice if there was better Apple Watch support.
Google is the only work email brand I’ve used and being able to sync my work and personal meetings all into one view is the only way I can keep my life organized. Except for the bit where I use the calendar app to keep my brain current on what even is today, and that 31 is enough to mess me up every time.
Add Secondary Time Zone 3/5
By iPhone Brandon
Please add secondary timezone to display on mobile devices. It works on the computer but not on mobile. Very handy for people that work both coasts of the US!
Week3, biz still relies on appt accuracy 1/5
Two updates since the ones that caused so many identical user complaints here, in help and all over the web and the same busy work nonsense taking up our days for a solution that only keeps us off the phone for awhile but will never fix the software issue they're still denying against 3rd grade reasoning and deduction. Added events don't show immediately, but we can't schedule extra starting time so make sure they eventually do. Moving appointments manually is a game of popping back up original time until about the 3rd attempt and deleting events is only done at the whim of the app after a random amount of tries. This is a NIGHTMARE for people who work with customers who they are invested making HAPPY through attentive CUSTOMER SERVICE and RELIABLE SERVICE and QUALITY they can know is a company priority. nightmare. You can delete the some events over Don't bring small businesses that rely on your apps down to your despicable level of ambivalence and now afunctional products. It won't last. Not everyone is dumb enough to keep bending over to say thank you for the flogging and lack of respect.
Just What I Needed 5/5
By Tokiyo Tomare
I needed an easy-to-use, digital, and flexible calendar. This has everything I was asking for!
Suggestion: More theme color options 5/5
To keep things short, it would be nice to have more colors to have an organized theme going on. Like pastel colors, etc.
Need better widget 1/5
Widget displays very limited information. Apple Calendar’s widget displays almost twice as much info. Please improve the widget!
My brain! 5/5
By Rosey Beth
I forget everything these busy days. I call my calendar my brain. Someone asked me to be somewhere or set Dr appointment, I say wait, let me check my brain. Love how I have it connected to groups so I can decide”if” I will attend also.
Can’t colorize event posts 2/5
I suddenly am unable to make my doctor appointments as red so I can easily see them. I have tried to fix it but nothing helps. Grrr! I’m very frustrated now. I have so many appointments now it would take forever to start all over. Help!
Can’t make it light mode. 1/5
I want the app in light mode, but there isn’t an option to do that unless I turn dark mode off on my whole phone.
I have triple checked to make sure my notifications are working on both my phone and the app. I don’t always get notifications for my events. It is very frustrating.
Does not sync with iPad 1/5
Since the last Google Calendar update, Google calendar is incapable of syncing with the iOS, and my system is updated to the latest version. What a waste of time trying to get this to work on my iPad with my iOS calendar! Useless!
Editing is Very Complex 2/5
I have been having trouble editing my sports calendar teams for a long while now, and am very upset that I cannot make these easy changes. 😞
Worst company in the world 1/5
By What's up 1199
App is getting worse in 2022 2/5
I have been a huge fan of this app for years. The last few months there appear to have been some changes related to how calendar items are retrieved, sync’d, and cached, resulting in two issues:
1) Calendar is blank when first opened. Used to have a cached version available for instant display. It seems insane that the prior functionality wasn’t maintained. Load time is too slow to wait for stuff to appear.
2) syncing seems intermittently broken. The little syncing blue-ish progress bar / line thing seems to always be there, and changes I make on my phone seem to get stuck sometimes. App restart fixes.
By howdy doody time
This calendar app is superior to the Apple calendar.
Needs Video Conferencing Options 4/5
By Rater, rater
Google Calendar is really useful and has helped me a lot. The only problem is when I go to add a video conference, it automatically uses Google Meet and doesn’t let me change it.
Wouldn’t it be better if I could put links to Zoom, Brave Talk, Etc?
Update fixed problems 4/5
By Stuck on the 13th Floor
Previously could not use app but new update fixed problem. Needed the app for work so and was not able to use it for over a week. Like how i can turn on/off view of shared calendars as wanted.
Please create a larger widget for the iPad 4/5
I am really happy with the Google Calendar and am happy to pay for Workspace. It has really organized my life. Please create a larger iPad widget. I have too many tasks and calendar events to show on the Home Screen.
Like it but needs a small update 4/5
By Biddle's Pinboy 2
I really like the calendar & the different views & colors it has however I wish it would be updated to not the previous or upcoming months when on the month view cause that tends to confuse me at times
Useful but could use work 4/5
By Caileigh Murphy
Love this app and it’s very useful but the changing color for things feature. Well could you make a feature where you can label the colors. Like have the ability to change the color names. Would make things easier and quicker then having to look back to keep organized. For Example:🟧Work 🟩dr appt etc
To many unknown. Note
Great app 5/5
By Zane Salim
The best app for scheduling and working with a team!
It no longer automatically syncs with my Android calendar 4/5
By angel cat lover
I used to be able to schedule things in the iPad version of Google Calendar and it used to automatically sync with the built-in “calendar” on my Android but not anymore. Apparently they are the “same” but not the same app, also I can download Google Calendar on my Android in addition to the Android built-in calendar, but the built-in one is better for me due to how it has to format on the screen and helps me see things better. But now they no long sync, apparently just since tonight! I need them to sync again! How will I do this?
No contact anniversary dates on iOS 1/5
By Shaylin Lea
Calendar is synced to Google and can see anniversary dates on web version, they won’t show on ios.
For some reason it made me sign in which it had never done before, and after I signed in it looped back to sign in again. So I deleted it and reinstalled, and it just won’t open.
Needs widget 4/5
Why is there no widget for the iPad home screen?
Jim in Decatur 5/5
By JD from Decatur
I love this calendar! I can put my appointments in different colors in order of importance. I can go a year or farther in advance, as well as, have a history of what I have done. WELL DESIGHED!
Doesn’t work on my old IPad 3/5
By judy ds
Worked lol these years, now when I click on it, it just closes. Tried to delete it and reinstall, same thing.
Doesn’t work any longer 1/5
On my iPhone 6. Horrible app now.
I wouldn’t use this app if my company didn’t force Google workspace 2/5
This app is so inconsistent with the web interface. You can’t view the list of attendees if it’s more than 10 or so in the app. You can’t format the description in the app even though you can in the web application.
Can’t delete from “add people”! Your guest list is there forever! 1/5
I love almost everything about the Google calendar, EXCEPT a person is in my “add people” or add guests that I cannot delete. I almost sent some extremely personal info about an event to her while trying to delete her, but the email address, fortunately, is no longer valid and the email bounced back to me as undeliverable. I’m not the only person with this problem on their iPhone, and it seems to go back some years. It has never been fixed and no one can give me a way to delete this person. I’ve gone online to my Google calendar, and my events are there, but there is no one on my guest list. There are plenty of instructions on how to fix this on your computer, but none to fix it on my iPhone. I’m currently checking into other calendars because Google seems uninterested in fixing this problem. So unless you want “invites” going out forever to everyone you ever put on your guest list then don’t use this app. If you accidentally add some one, you are stuck with them as long as you use this calendar. So DON’T GET THIS APP UNTIL THEY FIX IT!
