Calendars with colored event text


Mar 12, 2012

Would you please help?

I am looking for an Android calendar that :

  1. can sync with Outlook, and
  2. can set different colors to the text of individual events based on their categories.

( PS. I used to use Pocket Informant. But I am told the Android version has a lot of problems, including syncing with outlook )
im not sure of the sync but calengoo has good color options maybe business calender im sticking with pocket informant


Thanks for the reply.

So u are using the Android Pocket Informant? I heard there are many problems such as slow speed and unable to sync with Outlook. The satisfaction ratings are quite low.

Did you have any of these problems?

Hi Spile,

Yes, I heard the standard Google Calendar doesn't support color categaories. Thanks for confirming. That is why I don't even bother to find something that syncs with it.

I just need something that syncs with Outlook, which is more important to me.

Kevindroid made a good suggestion about Calengoo. But it looks as if the Outlook category colors would not be preserved when you port the data to Calengoo.

Would be good if Calengoo offer a trial version for me to try before I buy :)
