CalenGoo Calendar 4+
for Google Calendar and iCloud
Dominique Andr Gunia
Designed for iPad
CalenGoo gives you a fast and easy way to access and modify your Google Calendar with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It can also be used when you have no Internet connection, using the cached data. Changes are saved and uploaded the next time you are connected.
The calendar view is similar to the web view of Google Calendar. Events are displayed using the same calendar colors that you use in your Google Calendar, even Google's event colors are supported (please see http://www.calengoo.com/cc ). It also recognizes which calendars are visible and which are hidden. So the view should match the view of your Google Calendar as much as possible.
CalenGoo also has a month view similar to that of Google Calendar. It can be zoomed and panned to quickly get an overview over the events of a month. Zooming the month is done by using the two-finger-zoom gesture that you know from Safari and the photo application. A double tap opens the tapped day.
It also supports the same kinds of recurrence rules as Google Calendar and displays recurring events correctly even when you are offline or scroll far into the future.
You can also use Google Calendar's feature to invite people to events and see their status (accepted, declined, maybe, no answer). They will get an invitation email with links to e.g. accept or decline the invitation.
Google Calendar has an integrated task list, called Google Tasks. Tasks with a due date are displayed on the corresponding days of the calendar. CalenGoo can do the same, it can sync this list, display your tasks in the calendar views and in a list view and it even makes your tasks available offline. You can edit and add tasks and the changes will be synced with Google Tasks.
You either need a (free) Google Calendar account to use this app or you can use it with your iOS calendars. However using it with Google Calendar has a few advantages.

If you have any problems or suggestions, please send an email to email@example.com or take a look at CalenGoo's support website to get help.
If you think the font is too small and hard to read, you can increase the font size of all calendar views in the settings under "Settings", "Display and Use".

Ratings and Reviews
A++ Every imaginable option exists
I've used Calengoo since its inception and the app never disappoints. It also accommodates non-Google providers, e.g. Evernote, Google Drive, Waze, Weather, and more. There’s a massive amount of customization options available which should accommodate whatever use case you throw at it. That said, customizing can be confusing at times when I’m unsure about the function or definition of a particular setting or the reason for its existence. The Calengoo website defines most of the options….and more is definitely better than being boxed into less.
My advise is to periodically backup your settings before making changes in the event you need to revert. Calengoo's out of the box settings work well but i don’t care for the colors so I’ve changed them. IMO the app would advertise better in the app store with a more modern, muted color scheme, but no worries bc you can create your own.
The developer has continuously improved the app and is very responsive. Beyond the initial purchase he's never asked for another dime in spite of some major upgrades. Because I rely heavily on this app I’d be willing to support a subscription model to ensure it remains sustainable for the long-term. I suspect App Store sales have plateaued for developers given the maturity of the iPhone user base. Just a suggestion to the dev and a note of my gratitude for maintaining an excellent app.
Love it!! (5 year user)
Support staff is responsive and awesome. Each calendar and activity is just the unique color I want. Any time I have something I don't like, it's user error and they are happy to help me.
I love that I have form and beauty here. Some apps take away the words on the monthly calendar and replace with colorful bars... Or some other useless thing. With this one, I can go to month view and still see all my events. It looks good and works great!
It syncs perfectly. It works great with google (including matching to my 8 calendar colors) and does all that google tasks can do (and a little more, like put all overdue tasks on today, and view multiple task folders). The new floating task feature has changed the way I do my GTD system and I can check off when I have completed events.
This app has been my calendar app of choice for 5 years.... By far the app that has lived longest on my phone. (I shop and upgrade a lot.) It is interesting how this app used to be one of a kind, and now there are a few copycats, but this one still seems to have the most features that are integrated the best.
Best part: I'm always finding new fun features to get more out of it! I regularly check out the expert options and always find new things to get out of the calendar.
Highly recommend it!
Highly Recommend, HUGE Fan
Since the day of inception, this was the first calendar app that provided what I needed most, zoom in feature on month view and to see EVERYTHING on my month view. I don’t even remember how long I’ve had this app for. It completely changed the way I organized my day and my productivity level improved immensely. My calendar changed on the fly and it’s amazing to have a digital calendar that is better than a paper calendar everywhere I go.
The colors are great. I get to sync all my other Google calendars and hide what I need to hide. It syncs with Google Contacts birthdays and holidays. Very easy to use.
Over time, the features keep getting better and I didn't even realize how much I needed this new features such as a way to customize my icon badge #. Super impressed.
