Thanks for the feedback guys.
I'll try to answer some of the questions.

Your points are fair. I've tried to strike a balance between too much and too few options, but maybe i haven't found it yet.
Anyway, here are some explanations:
- The "no events" label only appear if you select "show weather" and there's weather information for that day, but no events. To show the weather information i had to show something on the description, hence the "no events" label (it doesn't appear if you choose not to show the weather). But an option to control it is something i will consider.
- I'm thinking on the hide icons option (it obviosly isn't difficult to implement, but like i said, i'm trying to keep the settings screen relatively approachable, so i must think on how to incorporate it). Right now you can hide the settings button, but that may not be enough.
- There's no predefined completly transparent theme, but you can make one by changing the day and header background to transparent (just slide the opacity bar all the way to the left). In the agenda view those settings are locked, but you can see how they work in calendar view. Now, i understand that it might be "harsh" requiring people to buy the premium version to have full transparency, but i had to lock some options...
- Regarding the possibility of buying it in the Play Store, i just thought that the In App billing process was "cleaner" and more straightforward for people who wanted to upgrade. I really couldn't think of any advantage of having a separate "key" app in the Play Store vs the In App billing, but maybe i'm missing something.

set it to white background.
however, there are certain issues when its being resized too small..
the dates scaled but it cuts off half, showing only 1-14 instead of 1-30/31.
Yeah, that's by design, and it probably works well for some people, and doesn't work for other people. If the widget is resized to less than 2 rows it shows only 2 weeks. Initially i didn't have that way, it showed all the weeks regardless of the widget size and it was scrollable, but i was having some trouble making it look "right" so i choose this route. I might revisit this though.
By the way, i should add a disclaimer here: the calendar view is heavily inspired by a "prototype" that Roman Nurik (from Google and dashclock fame) made. I didn't just copy it, as it has added functionality, but i was heavily inspired by it (and that's why the calendar view is completly free)

Adjustable font sizes, or at least a selection of 2 different font sizes are something i plan to explore. Can't promise it will be released as it must look "right", but i'll look into it.
Once again, thank you very much for the feedback.
