Windows Phone and Android get two great new calendar apps, and both are called Cal

Windows Phone and Android get two great new calendar apps, both called Cal
Cal, from the makers of, appeared recently at the Play Store, after a long stint for iOS, and immediately became a hit. Meanwhile, Windows Phone users got one of the best calendar apps there is for the platform, called... Cal again, but from an entirely different developer.

The common theme with both, however, is a great clean and minimalistic interface, and pretty widgets (in the case of Android), or Live Tiles (on Windows Phone). has amassed millions of installs already, as one of the top productivity apps for Android, on account of its simple and intuitive way to create tasks and to-do lists, as well as its trendy widgets. The free Cal app for Android features that same user-friendly design and widget system, barely requiring you to type at all, rather using checkboxes and predictive input for your events and notifications setup.

Cal for Windows Phone, on the other hand, from developer Philippe Maes, costs $1.99, but the sum seems to be worth it for one of the cleanest, simplest to use calendar apps on the platform. It syncs with your Outlook, Gmail and Facebook accounts, then displays your urgent appointments on compact or full-size Live Tiles that can be placed on your homescreen for at-a-glance agenda updates.
