My biggest problem with using Nova is the loss of widgets. I can find plenty of replacements for the weather and clock...but I can never find a decent, clean calendar replacement for the htc/lg/samsung calendar widget.

Curious, what widgets do you guys use for calendar and everything else?

Thanks!

I dedicate a whole home screen for a calender and agenda.
I'm using Jorte and simple calendar widget right now.
But you should look at pure grid which I've used for many years. Pure has a lot of customizatons to it.

I used Jorte for a long time back when I ran CM roms in the good days of unlocked bootloaders. It's too busy for me now. I found a simple calendar widget that opens Samsungs calendar. Works so far. Just feels like something is still not quite right when using 3rd party launchers. Can't put my finger on it.

Thanks for the reply

I use aCalendar, and the month-view widget.

I thought jorte would be a little too busy for you.
The one jpm posted above looks nice and clean though. [emoji6]
Here's my set up but don't laugh at my pink stuff! Lol

It seems I've set up nova with a few widgets and my battery life has drastically decreased. All I'm using really is transparent weather and testra from nova

Yep. Lost 22% battery in 6 hours with only 50 minutes screen on time. Not the worst, but definitely not good battery life

That's just my wallpaper, and a transparency setting in the aCalender widget.

Wow, that's pretty creative. I'm going to have to play around with mine now.
