I have a friend with a new Android phone, and he still is only using a paper calendar! Now, I still do that, but most of my information is stored in Google Calendar. So, why would you want to deal with paper in 2011?
I use Google Calendar because it is linked to a Gmail account. That means if you switch phones or wipe your phone, your calendar is restored without losing information! You just need to make sure that you’re regular syncing your calendar with Auto Sync. If you don’t want background data or Auto Sync on, you need to make sure that you are syncing your device on a regular basic. I have switched to many different Androids and have never lost any information on my calendar.
There are many different ways to use Google Calendar on your Andy. A popular way is can just use the stock calendar and widgets that are already on your phone. Also, there are many third-party apps and widgets on the Android Market. I use Business Calendar and the widgets they provide, I got it for free when it was one of the free app of the day at Amazon App Store. A lot of people recommend Jorte, but I really didn’t like it. I like to see one day a time and I could never figure out how to do that with Jorte! If you don’t like the widgets in these apps, there are several calendar third- party applications available.
You can do almost anything on your device that you can do on the web page, except for certain scheduling of appointments. For example, you can’t schedule an event for every two weeks on your phone, that’s something that you need a computer for. However, regular appointment scheduling you can do just fine.
