To-do and Map integration are the most noticeable changes in this update. And by supporting to-dos and to-do widgets that syncs with Google Tasks, Task management became another key aspect of SolCalendar along with time management. Also, Google Tasks and Google Maps integration made it the best alternative to Google Calendar app.
Powerful line-ups of new customizable widgets and stickers are believed to be other key differentiators to draw new users. New countdown, date, shortcut widgets and mono-tone simple stickers were added to fulfill the various tastes of users.
On the other hand, SolCalendar team has maximized the user experience by bringing a completely re-designed UI. Views for adding event were simplified, and Today & Agenda Views are integrated in one menu. Also, users can check their monthly and weekly schedules at a glance with the Split View, unlike in other calendar apps.
