Blik Calendar Widget

Blik Calendar Widget


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

Blik reads your calendar and *automatically* shows the best picture for each event. You see a picture, the start time, and an important word from every event so that you can see what's coming up on your agenda.

You end up with a quick visual guide to your upcoming events. Your calendar has never been easier to "read".


The free/trial version of Blik comes with 350+ 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:
Your personal information (READ_CALENDAR) - required to get calendar event information.
Network communication (INTERNET and ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE) - required for Pro License Key check; advertising in free version.



Known issue(s):
> On screen rotate, sometimes Nova Launcher will not return the correct widget size, so rendering is incorrect. To fix, resize Blik widget.
> Widget appearance preview in Settings for month layout doesn't draw correctly (it does draw the widget correctly on your homescreen though). -- fixed in Jelly Bean and above
> Facebook events may be displayed with incorrect starting times. Use Blik Advanced Setting value to manually adjust the display for all Facebook start times.
> Facebook declined events will still show up.
> Larger widget sizes can result in out-of-memory crashes.


---=== When DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME changes ===---
If your phone is showing events off by an hour, you may need to power it down and reboot so that your phone picks up the time change from your cell provider.


-- Important Note --
If you are having problems with your calendar events not syncing, go to http://android.joeprogrammer.com/blikhelp/synchelp.html for information and instructions on how to correct the problem.

It works well, but if you have a busy calendar it gets too cluttered. For me, having a calendar for school with all my due dates on it, all the symbols were basically the same. I ended up just getting on my computer to look at my calendar there (since I use Google's).

This is great! Bought the full version immediately. £1.99 well spent. There is now a FREE hi-res icon pack available which make the graphics pin-sharp on my Desire HD. These guys are a great development team, and really help with bug fixes, requests and technical assistance. Seriously great little app, and the best I have paid for to date.

Very nice app! I've liked this widget, cause it looks better than the phone one. I went to the pro version, since it gives more choices, and I like the little pictures for events.
