What and When Widget Lite

What and When Widget Lite


What and When is a widget displaying your agenda. It reminds you about your next appointments, tasks and anniversaries.

Appointments are retrieved from your different Google agendas. Tasks are retrieved from one of the following applications : Astrid tasks, Dato GTasks or SSI gTasks. Birthdays (and anniversaries) are retrieved from your contacts list.

What and When is very customizable. You can choose the period to display (from 1 day to 6 months), to display or not the appointments, tasks, birthdays or anniversaries, and many other options related to these events (private appointments, overdue or with no due date tasks, contacts pictures, etc...). There are 4 sizes for this widget : 4x1, 4x2, 4x3 and 4x4. What and When can be displayed as well in portrait or landscape modes.

The widget appearance is customizable. You can set the display colors and transparency of the date, line of event and information bar zones. You can also choose the text color (between black and white) and some other colors. WARNING : you must have Android version 2.2 (Froyo) or above to customize the widget appearance.

You can have many instances of What and When on your desktop. You can configure each instance separately : for example one for appointments, one for tasks and one for birthdays and anniversaries.

What and When can also display the day and time of the next alarm. An information bar reminds you the number of active events for today and for the period that you have defined.

Shortcuts (that you can define) are available for each event line to open the applications related to these events (calendar, tasks manager, contacts). You can also add shortcuts on the events counters and on the alarm.

Lite version differs from full version for the following items :
- The events display period is limited to one week.
- Only one Google agenda (that you can choose) can be displayed.
- Private appointments can't be hidden.
- No widget appearance customization.

** NOTE **
What and When is a widget. So there is no shortcut in the apps menu. To install it, click on your home screen and select the Widgets menu item. There you'll find the icons of the What and When widget.

Seems okay I like the fact it uses the default calendar app However not really looking to paying to see whether this is really good or not. The pictures do not show if I can customize it the way I like it. I also do not like that or needs specific todo apps rather than using gtask data

Worth a try Pros: Easy on the permissions. Works with aCalendar. Small widgets, too. Cons: Deceptive screenshots show paid version features, this one has almost no settings at all. Can't influence refresh period, either. Please make the app icon disappear, it's pathetic and nobody likes to waste slots in there.

Too limited Hard to get a feel for this as it's too limited. No scroll feature kills it for me.
