SmartBCalendar

We first saw SmartBCalendar pop up back in October, and it has had a great response ever since. The useful app changes your native calendar icon on your homescreen and shows the actual day. Pretty cool if you aren't good as keeping track of what the actual date is (like me). Well the team behind SmartBCalendar has had some great feedback and is prepping version 2.0 for launch with some cool updated features but still needs some help. They are looking for some final suggestions for updates and features you'd like to see included before release, and in turn have offered up 100 copies of SmartBCalendar to give away. The rules are simple; just leave a single comment on this post telling us what you'd like to see from the new version. In doing so, you will be entered to win a copy of SmartBCalendar. When version 2.0 is released you'll be eligable for a free upgrade as will all existing customers. If you don't want to wait, you can pick it up now in the CrackBerry app store for just $0.99. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PDT.

I'd like to see everything in my calendar emailed to me at the start of the day.

Hmarc187

Simple and effective :)

kangalex

you can just use the google calendar and set it up to email you every morning. i get my daily schedule emailed to me at like 4am. very useful.

mkhattab

I would love to try a copy thanks!

peoriatech

This would be an excellent addition to help with my appts.

cm99xj

A much bolder font would be nice.

ryanlion

I'll be your guinea pig...lol. Would love a copy.

sjkimberly

i'd LOVE to win this
and the free up-grade too!
thanks crackberry!

figranad

I want try this app, it woul be great to comment in my blog of Blackberry apps http://www.figranad.com.mx

Thank you :)

Itstakenovermylife

Great app! I'd love to win this!

majorbedhead1967

I think that it would be cool if the calendar was some how tied into the LED and vibrate modes. This way when a reminder pops up the LED would illuminate a specific color(s) and the phone would also vibrate.

ccasemore

Rolling over the app for the default Calendar app just says 'Calendar'. It would be nice if it said the month and day (ie. 'May 14').
I'm going to give 2 suggestions because I would really love this app. 2nd suggestion: change icon's top bar's colour for month (ie. spring=green, winter=blue, fall=orange, etc.) instead of always just being green.

mkurz12

This app all ready does what you suggested. It gives you the option to to choose to show MM/DD/YYYY (any of the 3 configurations of that) simply the day, astrological sign for that day/Month or just the year.
I Like the idea to allow a color change though. That would be a welcome addition.

Dash

A feature could be to show the next scheduled appointment when you scroll over the icon. Kind of like how berryweather displays the temp when you scroll over it.

mkurz12

I was wondering if adding a Today feature that can be turned on or off would be possible. If so that would be pretty cool. Specially if it gave you options similar to Berry Weather giving you the choice of where it would populate on the home screen. As well as how long and how many entries.
I use the berry weather wall paper feature. If I could tell a hidden today to show up in the perfect place on the homescreen with out covering the Berry weather info, that would be great.

slater22

This would be great for me and hopefully I can win it and give great input

webmastir

i would really enjoy this app. i think a different font may be in order.

teeno

I'm counting down the days to my vacation, what would be really cool is to have the ability to toggle between the actual date and a countdown calendar!
oh, and pick me..that'd be sweet!

Dash

A feature could be to show the next scheduled appointment when you scroll over the icon. Kind of like how berryweather displays the temp when you scroll over it.

everglo

would love to try out a copy

migueljonathanaguilar

Just what this phone needs a calendar that goes with your phone day by day. Good deal

chrisoc723

Make it a neon red or blue. I would stand out more

jho51e

Apart fr displaying the actual date, is it possible that if on that particular day one doesn't have appointments/eventd/etc that the colour (maybe green) of the date is different fr when one has a full day of appointments and all day events (red) or when there are no appointments but there are all day events like a birthday (blue)?

Would love to win a copy!

abbate1997

I think this is a great app and useful one as well.

coggster

Having the option to have the 'icon' as your wallpaper on the homescreen.

gunpla

Very useful app! I needs!

andyahs

Another super give-away. I'm all in.

remicks

+1 to the "hover" to show next appt. idea and the LED suggestion. Hope I get a free copy, free stuff is win.

dannyb1301

rollover to show next appointment

JAKrzysztow

This is a great little addition!

sagardavul

Am in for this cool App.

wdanker

Put a star on the icon if a reminder is set for an appointment.

mattpowell19

It would be cool if I could get my calendar entries emailed to me every morning based on importance that I select for the items!

J_Kirk

Would like it if it could show week no, day, year, etc. When pointer is on it

pecosbill259

Would lovE to have this app and the upgrade

R1cE

I would like to try one!

superdeliman

This is a better calendar than the standard calendar. Let me get a copy.

dklimah#CB

Looks like a great app!

dr_w

I could sure use this program.

awperk

this seems pretty useful

conboyp73

Looks like a great little app to try.

VS7

Please give me a copy. I am using SmartBCalendar the version 1.x

Pls mail to: nhan.vs7@gmail.com
Thanks.

pecosbill259

Would be so useful for me for personal and work scheduling and reminding me of schedule

Crackberrier09

I’d like to have one. Count me in :)

dlcole

Great Idea, love to have a copy

solrac7

A popup window with the quotes of the week

BBICON

A feature I would like to see is to show the next scheduled appt when you scroll over the SmartBCalendar icon. Kind of like how weather apps displays the temp when you scroll over it.

miraclebeam

love this app, thanks crackberry ~

tmcgilbray

i would like to try the new app

leenyc

Maybe link it up to whatever weather app you are using so you can see the date & the weather at the same time.

cu19

would be great if my calendar had shortcut or hot buttons to go directly to either month view, week view or day view. it happens often that i need to see dates in different views and hate going through the menu all the time.

Guatiao

I'd like it to change days while using themes other than the native BB ones.

Junius8

It would be cool if the app actually said the month and day without having to scroll over it

posman6550

I would like for it to show the next appt when you touch the icon. Thanks.

thefinks

i would def use it....come on RANDOM drawing...the winner is.......

witchyknitter

I love being able to personalize what I see & what alarms there are. Always being able to tie into native alarms is great!

johny_bold

I like to view on that particular day, one doesn't have appointments that the colour of the date is different for when one has a full day of appointments and all day events or when there are no appointments but there are all day events like a meeting

CustomGrain

I don't currently have this but I'd like to give it a shot.

Kerzhan

For what it is, it already seems to be feature complete... but if there were a way for it to maybe display a color for upcoming events (like red = less than 2 hours, yellow = less than 6 hours, or otherwise configurable) that would truly be awesome.

uurrozm

I never won.. need to win once.. at least

:o)

MasterRy88

It would be nice if the icon said Day, number day, month and number of calendar entries for that particular day. It doesnt have to say what they are on the icon just how many you have

robarias

I would love to try it :)

rroyy

this must be a standart option for BB

stillions

Looks like a useful app would like to win one.

Tweedle

Wow. Nice app. I realy need one copy ;)

jstewartjr85

i love this program!! I hate that it isnt a built in feature with RIM!!

mchairdoc

In your Face with the Calendar, what a great idea. I need this app..

AnneO

Hope its better than the native

vvelvetelvis#CB

i would like to win, who doesnt want to be a winner. so, i would like it if there was a notification on the icon if you have an appt that day.

deranged58

I know the clock is displayed in almost every theme out there, but it would be cool for the hover to show the time, either in the current time zone, or another time zone! Would be awesome for travellers who want to keep in touch with home!

Green_Laser

would work great for me!

crysis63

I would like to see the calendar give the ability to color code appointments for different types of meetings, or business vs. personal without having to use different calendars.

Prig

Looks useful. Wouldn't mind a copy of this.

Coachm

I have tried this app before as a trial, it works great. The only complaint was the "L" hot key no longer works so I always had to actually go to the Icon to get into my appt.
I would like a copy of the new version.
Thanks

tons-q

Wohoo, now the calendar apps could get smarter!

Mr. Orange 645

1. The ability to change the appearance of the icon to better match different themes (like an iPhone style icon for example). Simple Calendar does this but it does not activate the hidden today features.

2. Someone suggested changing the appearance of the icon for days you have appointments set. I think this is a brilliant idea (like the new message notification or change the color of the icon itself.

MedicStuder

I need this app, it would be great for work and personal life.

I would like to see if they can change the today area when you focus in on the calendar to only show 2 columns (date and title) hopefully it would be even better if they could give the user the ability to chose what they want to see in the today area.

Rig415

Count me in.. if i happen to win a copy i will be more then happy to offer all the feedback they can handle.. Thanks CB and always..

LyndellKell

i would like to see like an abbreviated Day like Thur. or Wen. with a full 00/00/00 next too it or under it. i would also like too see different choices for the color of the calender like a be able to make that green on it yellow or purple or any other color as well. i mean some people may hate green.

jrdnlc

Google Syn? Wirelesly, possible or no? :D

fu53d

would love a copy, great contest, thanks CB!

schlice

Seems cool. Hopefully it integrates well with other themes. Maybe just having multiple icon choices so you can choose one that resembles the active theme would work well.

Sam K

I don't know the features in this app to make a suggestion but here's something I wish the regular Blackberry calendar would do. If you have an event like an all day event or an event without a time such as a birthday or anniversary, it would be nice if you could set up SmartBCalendar to remind you throughout the day instead of just once at the beginning of the day like the regular Blackberry calendar.

mrbigxray316

please let me try this..

AshHaushaltswaren

i would like to win this app!

Coffey123

I hope that I win!!!!!!!

Cohibaluvr

In the corner of the icon, have a very small number in a circle that shows how many appointments you have for that day.

This will help by knowing how many you have when your cursor is over another icon and you wont need to hover over to see the number, but hover over to view them.

frabas1

would love this app to be more user friendlier>

herooftimeloz#CB

make the led flash different colors depending on the type of scheduled event.

rj160202

But really hope to win.

agosine

This is worth trying for.

Xan

Periodically cycling the current date and a countdown to certain date that we can be set manually should be a nice touch.

Ziads

would love to use it on my bold 9700 :D thx CB :)

jonboy666

I would love to win a copy of this!

maunvs

hope i win a free copy!!1 :)

c0rinne

1) I love to be able to change the background so it's got a better chance of matching my themes.

2) I love to be able to change the font so it's got a better chance of matching my themes.

3) Option to either open calendar or do a popup.

4) Hover to show what's up next.

abekalapaz

Would love to get this app on my Tour!

KCCause

So it can be done! I want this app!

jmripollg

it looks really nice! one suggestion i have would be to have different icon styles available. i don't use a theme with that type of icon, and it would really be nice if it were customizable. either way, i'd love a copy!

abekalapaz

Would love to have this app on my Tour!

ArgoFX

This is a great app and I've been looking for something like this for a while. It's an annoyance that the native calendar app always shows '31.' What I would like to see in addition to the day updates would be Day of the week in the application icon sort of how they do it on iphone/ipod touch calendar. Also a slight face lift would be cool: color changes, bolder fonts, thicker 'green' bar.

Brasso

for my 9550 please...

Yell0w

looks like a cool app to have!

d00d1e

yeah i could use that. thanks.

poste

It would be a SmartBCalendar if it showed your actual appts/events for the days when you hovered over top of it.

Enter me in this contest for a chance to win their current version.

ZebraIII

I would like an itinerary emailed to me in the morning.

azie

i want to have the possibility to set the notifications for birthdays when i wish to.
that would really rock.

ruger10_22#CB

Could this be better than the default calendar? Give me a copy and I will let you know.

eschielke

Looks to be quite a useful app!

RaGe420#CB

I would like to give it a try.

rontaylor

I'd sure like to try this one.

sweeneyben

How about a small m,t,w,th,f in the image to, just incase you forget what day of the week it is. This could be an option that can be turned on or off.

Nomer

This would be a great addition to my bb!!

mdlissner

An option to show the time of the next appointment on a single click of the storm screen on the icon.

ecupirate

Maybe have color and font options for the icon!

mheisen

Love the email the days events, icon notifier of events would be good too.

vanesserstation

Smart calendar so I don't need to think, would love a copy.

hockymama

I would love to win thgis, I've been looking for a new calender App

stormbabe

Some of the best apps over-do it by adding features. I have Show Me The Time - which is great because no matter what app I'm in, I can always see the current time by pressing the BB button.

If this only shows the current date, why add features and take up more memory?

Pathtek4

Heck yeah, hook me up!!

blutricky

I don't currently use smartBcalendar so I honestly can't give any feedback on what I'd like to see in a newer version, but I do know this...I would love to win a copy!

bigbe

What a great idea! How come nobody did this sooner? Thanks guys (and gals) for this chance... and gl to u!

automan40

i would like to see the day and date on the home screen with the month showing up when you touch the icon

lmrosin

i'd like the icon to show the current date

BLACKBERRY619

I'd love this calendar app I hope I win

alvinlaw

similar to ical. I love it

bhadra

I'd like to see a today screen version included with this app - instead of having to download a new theme with the feature!

Blackfeet

What day is it today? The calendar icon on the Tour says it is the 21st, but I just don't know . . .

Lord Vaine

Much better than the calander blackberry has to offer!

BerryUK

I never do, same people win all the damn time. But it would be nice

GBP87

I thought I was the only one that found that useful!

Would love to give it a whirl...

GBP87

I thought I was the only one that found this useful!

Would love to give it a whirl...

denniswong13

This shows how useful a simple idea can be. This would work great for me!

michael steel

no whammy no whammy ... no whammy no whammy .... STOP!

Did I win?

Bill_Johnson

Seems pretty simple and effective as is. What if the date FLASHED as you approach an appointment on the day?

BIG CAT 7

I would give this a go...........

New fonts, mayber options for the day, month and some different skins for the app would be nice.

padsitter1

Reminders. Easier to set up

CUB1

This app would make my life a little bit easier to keep up with my business. Believe me it gets hectic at times!!!!!!

Gunnar_Saxon

I think a notifier should come up like that on the sms application. A little asterisk in a red bubble to alert me of calender alerts. Also the LED lighting up would be fantastic.

kilted thrower

I would love to see the ability for this calendar to show up on themes that normally don't show a calendar when the calendar is not on the homescreen icons as well as complete calendar integration from all calendars (facebook, gmail, outlook, etc)

n00b_addict

perhaps the icon could flash at specified reminder intervals?

tysonsnow

How about a day of the week indicator in the bottom right corner (or some other place). Just a small M, T, W, Th, F, S, Su. Then we will know the day of the month and the day of the week. Yay!

avz3112

This is something RIM needs to make standard, but it'd be nice to have now.

Yosaki

I would totally use this!

shift_louie

Would love to see custom backgrounds and font style added!

Bob61

Nice! - Another one of those type of apps that should be a standard feature on the BB.

The_Engine

How about the ability to sync with multiple calendars.

Or an easy way to enter a new calendar item in a pop up or something.

Bicyclist

I need all the help I can get.

adikumar

would like a feature wherein i can set multiple alarms to a calander event.... like one before the efent occours and may be another one after the event occours.

rpanicke

oh yea I could use a win that works

plarouche

Would love to try it!!!!:)

Huakxz

It's useful for me!Can you give me a copy? Thanks!

Cpt.GargameL

chmnh

J_Rock

This looks like an app right up my alley. I am on BB for the productivity. This would only add to my addiction of productivity. If I don't win one I just might have to break down and buy it.

eugene1979

grazie, pls pick me.........................

cerhardt

I wish there were a search option within my calendar. Sometimes I know I have something scheduled, but I can't remember when. I have to scroll through each day to find my apt.

Tommy32

I am always losing track of the day of the week. This would be a useful tool to have. Thanks for the opportunity.

aherreravergara

Making it skinnable or allowing font or color customization would make this app a really functional and cool opportunity for theme builders and users alike! Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

SQ609

Would love to be able to see all my appointments for the whole month in a list on one screen (by date of course). Without having to look at the calendar and pick days to see what I have.

rbrugada

able to set different reminder alerts for different calendars

jimfran24

30 days come September April June and November all the rest, oh damn can I win? !!!

danial.aw

cool blackberry always misses this feature i dont know why

aaronbudnick

Would like to see the ability to track workouts

jay_20

I agree with the other posters; it would be nice if scrolling over the icon showed some useful information.

GreatSave31

Would love to toss my hat in for one!

paulq#CB

Of course I want it to be Storm compatible but I'd also like options for the icon - different shapes, etc.

Dannyd534

never used it before, but would love to give her a test run

imdabold1

I would love to try a copy

sgesang

Definitely will give it a try.

linkkoriri

I would love to give this a try. Simple yet very useful.

teryfunk

another +1 to the next appt/event when hovering over the icon, or at least the option to choose what appears there, just like berryweather.

Luv_Storm

you guys should have it change a certain color for each day of the week... monday- blue red- tuesday wed- green thurs- purple... and a nice bold font!

onthedge157

The month, but anything is better then what we have

victort#CB

And thank you for the copy if I win it.

helmstown

I would like to see it have a feature to make my life easier!

powert33

to have a choice of icons so that smart b calendar stands out, maybe a new color on top? Just make the icon POP

cutlerf

Hard to improve on perfection but adding month name and date only as an option would be nice

voltaire

Nice app that I would love to have.

Cap_172R

Nice giveaway.. could really use this. Well, they can probably implement notifications for appointments or agendas with a star on the calendar icon just as if you got a new email, bbm or whatever.. that draws my attention! hope i win a copy!

Foggytop

I would love a new calendar!

Lizzdmc

Always looking for a way to get more organized...

sharpzoo

This kind of app must be simple and light.

davidjroth2002

planner on my desktop rocks!

Up2date

I would like to see the calendar give the ability to color code appointments for different types of meetings, or business vs. personal without having to use different calendars.

LouieTran

Could really use a copy of this to try out.

B.builder_1

Able to change the color would be nice!

abarista

Options I'd love to see are: Color coding options for days or events, drag and drop email to quickly create an event, hover, appt. requests, separate bb calendars for professional and personal
