I'm using Simple Calendar Widget a few years now. It's a nice (scrollable) calendar widget with a lot of customization possibilities.

Long time ago. I suppose they fixed that

Personally never had a problem with Jorte, maybe I'm just lucky.

Synced FB birthdays, F1 race calendar and Arsenal fixtures all to my Google calendar, everything displays just fine. massive range or widgets (I prefer an entire homescreen to display a month calendar)

On the rare occasion I setup a manual calendar appointment, sync and reminders work ok too.

(For anybody who may have followed the play store link, just noticed the childish screenshots they use. Hope that doesn't put people off! The built in theme engine is extremely versatile, perfectly capable of looking professional as well...)

Thank you everyone, I will try these and let you guys know which one I personally like best. Again I am looking for something that is not so much a full fledged calendar, like Jorte is, but a widget like app that links to giggle calendar itself. And I also did read about Jorte having problems.

I really wish that PureGrid had a free trial as well. And from reviews it seems that simple calendar widget had some bugs, at least in nexus 5, but I will try all these and post results. Thanks everyone.

Thank you everyone for their input, I just wanted to say that I chose "Event Flow Widget", because it is the most beauitful I think in general and goes well the most with the Nexus 5/Kitkat theme. Of course there is a catch to their app: If you want to customize it more you have to pay $.99.

As for PureGrid Calendar - I never got to try it because it is not free, nor is there a free demo one, so it must be great given the positive feedback it has, but I can't say anything about as I was unable to try it.

Calender Widget: Month+Agenda, was very good, and the good thing is that it displays your agenda and calendar in one widget, something I do not necessarily need, but for those who do it is an excellent choice. However, I Believe that this app is also not free and I am not sure how much it costs after its 7-day trial.

: I tried Jorte and have no major complaints other than that they can update it a bit to match with the times, it should have resizable widgets. In any case I did not need a full-fledged calendar, I just needed a calendar widget, so Jorte was not really for my needs.

Calendar Widget by Milan Sillik was also impressive and nice, again, I chose Event Flow because it just looks more slick, but I believe Calendar Widget may have more options packed in both for calendar purposes and widget customization, so its a must-try. However, again, if you want to unlock all its options such as transparency settings you have to buy the Pro.

Simple Calendar Widget was ok...but I did not like it as much as the Event Flow Widget or the Calendar Widget by Milan Sillik.

UpNext Alpha: I did not try it due to a malware comment on the nothing to say on this.

So yes overall winner for me is Event Flow Widget, and I also really liked Calendar Widget by Milan Sillik.

Thank you everyone

persianrisk: thanks for compliment of my app

My favorite calendar widget is of course mine - Calendar Agenda Widget - it's free, simple, beautiful and has plenty of customization options (some of them are paid). On of it's most useful features is custom reminder functionality - you can set alarm on any event, and it will ring like phone call or alarm clock at morning I think it's pretty unique on whole market.

Another good widget is my competitor Event flow CW I must admit that it looks good - maybe it's because it looks quite similar to mine widget, (looks like author was inspired by mine app - however this is my personal opinion which can be far away from true).
