There is no doubt that Google’s calendar app is one of the best calendar apps on Android. With the switch to Material Design visuals, the user interface has become a joy to use. The integration with Gmail for flights and other reservations, new schedule view and more have made it really good.

- See more events at a glance with 7-day week view and pinch-to-zoom
- Add Google Drive files to events. Drive will even check if everyone can open them.

- A new option to show week numbers in settings.
- Import .ics files sent to you in Gmail and other apps
P.S. the iPhone version of Google Calendar is still ‘coming soon’.
