Here are the best Android Calendar Apps:
1. Google Calendar
If you own a Nexus device, Google Calendar is installed by default on your phone/tablet. Like any Google product, you will have lots of features in a very simple user interface and you will see all the events in your accounts, if you have already synced your device with those accounts. Settings reminders, getting notifications, assigning different colors to events, and importing calendar data from other Android calendar apps, are the other features of Google Calendar.
Google Calendar is free to download and your device must be running Android 4.0.3 and up.
2. Jorte Calendar
If we call Google Calendar as the most popular Android calendar app on Google Play, we can say Jorte Calendar is the next on the list. What we really like about Jorte is that it feels like real calendar/organizer when working with it. Jorte is completely synced with Google Calendar and you can also benefit the Jorte Cloud for creating a backup of your events, and have them all on multi-devices. Jorte widgets are one of the best Android calendar widgets and you can purchase icons and backgrounds to make your organizer unique.
Jorte Calendar is free to download (in-app purchase is available for new customization options) and your device must be running Android 2.1 and up.
3. Business Calendar
This is our favorite Android calendar app and is a must have Android app for new users in business category. The very first thing you notice when working with Business Calendar is about the smooth navigation between different views and zoom ing in or using other gestures. If you are a business man with many agenda and tasks, you just need to add them to Business Calendar and let the app handle the rest.
Business Calendar is Free to download but you need to pay for the Ad-free version. Your devices must be running Android 2.0.1 and up.

If you like using different touch gestures, want to see the whole calendar at a glance, and don’t have too many events in a day then Touch Calendar is going to be your first and best choice.

It also offers lock screen widgets (for Android 4.2 and up), as well as home screen widgets.
