Lockscreen Calendar is a Great Way to Keep an Eye on Upcoming Events
Nov 10, 2011 11:12 AM –
Lockscreen Calendar. See your upcoming calendar events directly on the lockscreen! Works on every lockscreen, that normally displays the next upcoming alarm.
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Pros & Cons:
- Puts the next few events in your calendar right on the lockscreen.
- Highly configurable.
- May not work for default Samsung Galaxy SII and HTC Sense phones.
When you first start the app, it quickly walks you through setup, selecting which calendars you’d like to pull from, how often it will check for updates, etc. Personally, I have it pull from a select set of my calendars, and I have the next two events listed, so I can see, at a glance, what’s coming up shortly without even having to go into my device. Because it syncs with your calendars, once you do the initial setup, you never have to think about it ever again. The calendar entry exists right below your next alarm. This app is such an essential that it should be apart of the Android operating system.
Unfortunately this app may not work for default Samsung Galaxy SII and HTC Sense phones. And according to the developer, you need to press “update” at least once to make the app load your calendar and set the text on the lockscreen.

If you’re the type of person who is constantly checking your schedule, this is a great app. It lets you see at a quick glance without even having to unlock the phone what’s coming up.
Ease of Use:
This is a “set it and forget it” app. It walks you through the initial setup and settings, so you can quickly get it set to work exactly the way you want. To adjust settings, just open the app again and run through the setup again.
Every time you go to unlock your device, you’ll have your schedule right there for a quick glance, meaning you’ll use it all day every day.
The actual app interface is very easy to use, and very simple. It doesn’t have any splashy graphics or animations because it doesn’t need them. It does one thing, and it does it exceptionally well.
