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.

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

Built-in phone silencer for meetings.

sam81

Come in handy. I could use an updated calendar

wc4482

I would like them to get rid of the pesky bbm group calendar

SigMntr

Maybe the calender icon could be a different color for a day with events as opposed to free. It would be nice to know at a glance if something important was scheduled for that day. Probably gonna get this one if I don't win a copy.

jpena53

It would be cool to have the led synced to the color of the calendars so that if you get an alert for a calendar, you would know which calendar is alerting you.

vincent.joshua

hahaha i'd like to see more customization

boss337

this sounds like a very cool app. i think it will be really useful

red72

Who can remember the date?

Cheech92007

Oh please pick me! I NEED THIS! :D

ilovejackbauer

"Default EDGE Network"? I'm....so sorry....

doggie168

I hope I am the lucky winner

jzver#CB

A star to show an appointment for the day and on the bottom the appointment title or day date month year when pointed to.

brooklynstrong

I could use this I have no idea what todays day or date is

knightxii

would like to see an option to make all the appointments show up on the front screen that can be applied to any theme.

kaptiv8her

thank you for the opportunity.

potatostyle

i'd like to see a search/filter option that lets you see all appointments with the same name or something like that. If the normal calender has that option, i have yet to find it

live420

Just what I need a calendar app hook up yall

kitsura

I want to see a new feature with email alerts.

miloszz

What I'd like to see?
- customizable icon (to fit it to other themes)
- showing number of meetings as a application name
- customizable today feature (there is an app for this, so it seems possible)

My first thoughts.

muphenk

Trying my luck... Again...

acl198

this would be so helpful! it'll be like iCal on my computer!

rlmesq

It would be nice if the icon background could be changed to match the theme installed on my Storm. Not sure how this would work... but I guess that's why I'm not a developer!

LakerStar25

I would love to get a copy. I think it would be nice to either see the icon or the date change color and blink when you have a reminder. It would be simple and effective.

gadi59

i would love a registered copy

Rapid Dr3am

Sync options with Google calendar and/or tungle.

tpkennes

When hovering on the icon, it would be nice to show on the homescreen all the appointment of the day.

Would love to win this app.

CMHberry

1. Put the 3 letter month in the green bar.
2. Save me one click and add Go To Date... option on the BB button system menu!
3. Even cooler would be to have the Go To Date scroll on the icon but doubt the BB software would support that.
4. Change the icon on major holidays (xmas tree, egg, flag).
5. Give me a free copy. :)
Thanks!

Torreto

the calender should be os integrated already :S
I'm in!

kevinb518

Include a cool background/theme that correlates with each day of the week, and also shows the numbered date in a large, cool font (as part of the background)

dgoffard

looks great! I could use this. //

Dennis

O w i

id love to have one!more power crackberry!!

mkgolfer

when you click on it, I'd like to see the whole month view

NuVinci

Maybe is this the chance to win this handy application to view and check all my latest emails, check the calendar, make phone calls, appointments and engagements, and much more. To do my work with more joy and ease!

jkfsr

Looks good. Don't know if I would change it.

ewap

I'd like more options in the way of audible and vibrate alert options

Zula77777

I would love to try a copy thanks!

Zula77777

I would love to try a copy thanks!

ignitionpastor

Never tried it. But I'm game.

falesq

The color of the date should change depending on whether there is a calendar event that day (for example RED if there is GREEN if there isn't).

ruggerij

I'd love to win this one

bermudagem

I would love if you can tell, just by looking at the app, that I have appts that day. I guess by changing color or a star, or anything that will give you the heads up. I hope I get one. Thanks.

anthony8400

That would be nice. It was always something I missed on my BB since I left the iPhone behind me.

Mojave

When you roll over the icon I would like to see the Day, Month, Date (example Saturday, May 15). Like to see more color options. Instead of the black background with white numbers.....maybe a dark blue with white numbers and other colors. The ability to change the colors of the background AND the numbers would be great. This would be great for people like me that change their themes. Great app!!

4d1in3

love 2 get one///;-)

curvebill

I really would love this

KGambi

I would love to try the cal. Like to see the cal on home screen when I hover above cal icon. Also would be handy to have different colors available for separating types of appointments.

clazarte

different font and a stronger color.....

dlight57

but if you try somtiimes you find out you get what you need

halomunky

To see integration of tasks into the calendar.

excessfat

Hurrah! Smart Calendar!

Le_Victorieux

awesome, thx for the giveaway

Muddy13#CB

It would be wonderful to win.

Mobius8#CB

lovee thiss app so muchhh!!

deejayburnout

i would like to see this show the date on your wallpaper like some weather apps do.

paspals

ie- ability to respond to people(contacts) with messages(sms,e-mail,pin) for delayed time, changes of any kind of the original entry...

Thalakar

Hi would like to maybe see it be able to do more functions with the calendar maybe improved notes

yellowxboy

the ability to change the calendar skin would be nice

appledeuce

Please allow for the ability to mark appointments on an hourly basis.

ydcampbe

I think the new version should have something to differentiates itself from the native app. It should show the calendar events in the home screen or have some kind of reminder that is new and different!

lovelo

I cant even remember what im doing in 3 hrs if I dont have it on my tasks list or calendar but what makes it worse is if something doesnt pop up telling me. This would be amazing.

four4usc

would really like to have this app.

tigerlily1027

The date as the application name as you scroll over is a great idea.

rideman1212

I would like to be able to see the day, month and year when scrolling over the icon.
Thanks

ronBurgandy

I miss having the current date on the calender icon from my iPhone days, but I'm not sure if I would pay for it. My suggestion comes from when I had a Treo; use different colors for appointments based on their categories (e.g. Personal, business, etc.). I also second the suggestion to email what is in the schedule for the day. Now hook me up!! Thanks.

heathro1281

I would love a shot at using this app.

Goldbeak5

I would like to suggest color coding as an option, so you could have personal events one color, professional another, family obligations still another color choice. This way you could tell at a glance what your day holds in store by just the colors. Thanks!
Cheers,
Goldbeak

Goldbeak5

I'd like to see a color coding option where you could differentiate between personal/family/business appointments using assigned colors so that when you call up a day you could know in advance what's in store by color. Thanks!

Gopher1201

I wanter to be smarter, than smart-I want this one

rizzzzoooo

rizzzzoooo

Link995

I would love to win a copy of this app. Thank you very much! Great looking App.

jforce

this should be standard in all BB OS's. 6.0?

mixedberry

great I always forget the date

nbturk

Would be great for work for reminders

BigJav209

Very nice app,, hope to get a copy.. gracias

trev9065

RIM should make this standard.

stretch2k

Color changing per day of week
2 icon types color and black
Red notification icon on events like the message app has

Franticek

This app would be perfect if it operated like my Yahoo or Google calendar and sent me same day email notices of appointments.

dterio

i'd like to see home screen calendar theme. also like to see icon change brightness when scrolled on (like oem icons)

litig8or98

put me down for a free copy

tomcatt1#CB

I'd like to see the icon change colors as an appointment approached.

con4n007

need this!
thanks! :D

Palmiros

Looks good, count me in!

aapierre

when opening up the calendar would it be possible for it to flash up any due [even overdue] items in your calendar such as birthdays etc..

aapierre

someone posted about a countdown of days to an event

for my family we count down the number of sleeps till a big event - like a family holiday etc..

so maybe that feature would be excellent as in it is now 328 days till 21 of us head to Cuba for a family wedding / holiday

mkurz12

All ready a user of this app. Since the last 2 updates it's received I really can't think of anything that's needed. There where some minor issues at first but right after I got it (day 1 it was available) there must have been an update every week for a while. Like I said though, seems to work flawlessly since the last 2 updates.
Aside from showing the date and the fact you have your choice of what shows up on screen when the icon is highlighted it is exactly like the native calendar app. It also nicely replaces the native app which it was supposed to do upon release but didn't. Also works with themes, just remains the stock calendar icon.
Anyway, definitely suggest using this app if having the calendar icon reflect the actual date is what your looking for.
Not sure what they could be adding, maybe options to skin the calendar icon different ways to make it match some themes better or maybe some added functionality to the calendar app itself. Don't know but looking forward to it.

Pastor Ron

I would also like to see color coding in some way. Perhaps the ability to tag appointments according to importance.

lilaberry

coming up, and you could set how long before, like one day or 15 minutes before..maybe it could led or turn yellow or something ...thanks cb

GolfCB

Sweet, I have been waiting for an app like this forever!!

TH3JUICEMAN

Something that does bother me, I'm horrible with dates LOL

JoeyD715

When viewing the monthly calendar....I would love to be able to change the numbers of the days to different colors...or assign an icon next to it according to what type of appointment it is... at a glance. I hope this App will do this.

Nelimungous

Sure I would really like to try it!

buckken

Color changes, based on appointments and season would be great, and to show appt's in a today like feature as you hover over the icon.

I'm trying to see the usefulness of this program, and these features will obviously create more usefulness and, likely, more interest in the program.

I'm up for getting one, if for no other reason, to see just what this thing actually can do for me....

Include me in your "freebie"....Thx, Buckken

Verisimilitude

Sync capabilities with Google Calendar so that I can access my schedule from anywhere I am if I don't have my crackberry (which is rarely ever).

C4D_m0nk3y

I would like to see the ability to change colors to match whatever theme I am using.

BBchrissy

for a 1sttime win on here

brayndeded

maybe i can win this time. i like the idea of this.

mcrsouthbay

I know that if you have the today screen you can see all of your appointments. What about on the apps screen there could be a pop up after a two to three second delay that shows your appointments.

GoodOne

Maybe multiple icon can make a better performance..

soulchild_73

It would a cool feature if the calendar could display appointments in different time zones.

Kylash

It would be cool if they had the icon change to like Red or something when you have an appoint upcoming or a reminder.

agreffen72

I would absolutely love this!

oopsididit

Sounds like a really useful app

lev874

How about a link from the calendar to dial directly in a scheduled conference bridge #? Thanks

keizerjrr

I would like to see the desktop icon for the calendar change color on days when there are appointments or events. Something to remind me to look at the calendar with out multiple popups. Something along that would be subtle enough yet get my attention.

jaider26

Would look great on my bb, esp for free. :)

kangalex

does it function just the same as the native calendar? and if u download/install this, can u just delete the calendar program that comes with the bb?

amallah#CB

Very frequently, when I'm checking my Blackberry its to see how busy my next few days are, which is directly related to how many appointments/meetings I have set up. If the calendar icon could have little tabs coming out the side that indicated how many appointments are set up for the next three days (however many fit) that would be perfect.

I'm envisioning the calendar icon with the current date (as it is) and three red flags sticking out the right side with a little number in them that say appointments tomorrow, the day after, and the day after that. If no appointments, no flag. Optionally the number of appointments left today IN the date icon. I say optionally because I rarely need to know what's going on the rest of the day.

fergff

Thanks for the contest.

Elite1

It would be cool if you could have more control of the app's display name. It is already user-defined with selecting day of week or name of month. It would be cool if you could decide for that display and fade in the default timeframe of all app names, remain static. And maybe the option to display more than one option and have the display switch back & forth or even scroll.
It would also be cool to have the entire date in various numeric formats as options. At work we use YYYY-MM-DD, so it would be cool to scroll onto the icon and just automatically see that.

jaywalkah

i'd love one. calendar on a blackberry 9700 = pure awesomeness :)

augiedoggie

im in on this one...id like a pop up reminder so i dont miss my appointments

dvs1j#IM

me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

andycarleton

For those of us who don't have Outlook. It may already do this. I couldn't find it in the description.

brjar

Why doesn't bb have this option available anyways?

zdiverdanz

I think a day of the week abbreviation on the icon itself would be good instead of just having it at the bottom of the screen...

dkmoody

I am game for a better calendar tool anytime!

I have calendar confusion on my berry. The way calendars are cobbled together quuckly goes from wow! to weeping.

I need help!

eruckus

I would love to see the home screen icon change from default color to red when an appointment is coming up. of course some additional options would have to come with this feature... like the ability to set when the icon would change color (30min before, 15min before, etc. etc.) and for the busy body who has appointments scheduled every 30 minutes, the ability to turn this feature off. just a cool idea to get your attention for appointments in the near future.

damaltor

Wonder why this is not standard in the os..

DomConway

My suggestion would be to have the icon text change to the day, date and month eg "Monday 17 May", or at least to be able to configure what it says so you can change the format.

soybean63

I would like it to be more user friendly....Hi everybody....I love my crackberry fam....

bigaltheman

THIS MAY BE A LITTLE TO LARGE OF AN ADDITION BUT IF ITS POSSIBLE TO COMBINE WEATHER EYE OR SOME SORT OF WEATHER APP WITHT THE CALENDER SO IT WOULD BE EASIER TO PLAN FOR BOAT TRIPS AND SPORTS AND WEEKEND ACTIVITIES. I WOULD FIND THAT EXTREMLY USFUL SINCE I DO A LOT OF OUTDOOR WORK. I KNOW THAT THIS IDEA WOULD PROBABLY TAKE A WHILE TO DEVELOPE BUT I THINK YOU SHOULD LOOK INTO, THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

mlundin

Would love to have one of these copies

walterwt

Have a different colour for holidays/weekends

domnick33

If possible to get the calendar icon to blink red when certain events that you elect to be urgent are close to being due. Kind of like the weather bug app does when there are storm alerts. Hope to get a copy I use my calendar for everything.

corsadj

Non ricordo se ho lasciato il commento......

noemis

Please let me get a copy of this calander

meepbaby

This should be a standard OS feature. But I'll take it if free!

joeshark

I like ah this calendar
