Blik Calendar Widget

Blik Calendar Widget


Why use a boring calendar widget that only has words when a picture can tell the story better?

The Blik Calendar Widget shows your calendar events as pictures that match them best--all automatically.

The text of your event lets Blik know what picture to use. You get to see the picture, the start time, and an important word from every event so that you can keep on top of your upcoming agenda.

Your calendar has never been easier to "read"!



The free/trial version of Blik comes with 390+ pictures and 700+ keywords rules.

The Pro version unlocks another 300+ keyword rules so that your calendar events are matched up to pictures even better.

You can create your own keyword rules for single calendar events in the free/trial version and in the Pro version you can create your own keyword rules that apply to all your calendar events.


Check out the Blik Settings screen under the Help section for helpful Tips (like how to subscribe to a holiday calendar).


PERMISSIONS:

The recent updates jacked up the padding in landscape mode (at least in Nova). Everything is smashed vertically.

Widget size It was perfect, now it's messed up again. Stop jacking with it. Specifically the padding with Nova is now ruined. I already deleted and readded with the same result. The widget is too narrow vertically.

Perfectly suited for my needs! I love the instantly recognizable pictures for my events. In the years that I've used this widget, their consistent support fixes the few issues it's ever had. Still hoping for a "fairy" icon, but am happy with the available choices and enjoy that they add new ones.

Still there. Sent feedback. I keep getting a blank space in the upper right spot of the 4x4 widget. It's there sometimes, and sometimes it looks normal. It only started happening with the last update. Fix?
