very handy and nice looking one app!

Hands down, this is The BEST calendar widget available for the Galaxy Nexus phone. It may just be the best Android ICS calendar widget around. It is simple and yet highly configurable, with a visual design to match. I LOVE IT!

GTasks no longer sync Love(d) this widget, have been using it for years. However, out of a sudden (after Lollipop upgrade?) tasks from GTasks are no longer displayed. Not good. Especially considering the last update for SCW was nearly 18 months ago, so there's no real hope for a fix. Shame really.

What a waste... I have used this app (or at least TRIED to) for several years now. It's a shame that the developer is no longer interested in supporting it. This was the only widget that could be customized with different fonts, colors, etc AND worked in sync with GTasks and Google Calendar AT THE SAME TIME. Now, it no longer plays nicely with GTasks and only gives me half of what I need. I have tried to contact the dev multiple times but I feel like I'm emailing a ghost. TOO BAD.

Worked great for awhile Used to work just fine. Rebooted my phone one day and the widget disappeared. Uninstalled the app and reinstalled. There are no simple calendar widgets in the widget drawer. Removed/installed and rebooted many times to no avail. What is the fix? I'm using nova launcher and it worked previously.
