SolCalendar, one of the names to feature in our 12 best Android calendar apps roundup last year,  has been updated to bring an easier-to-use UI and new functionality to the platform.

The company said the new UI makes it easier to get around and simplifies calendar views. For example, the ‘Today’ and ‘Agenda’ views are now in one section; it also allows for weekly and monthly schedules to be checked simultaneously. However, the biggest changes comes from new integrations with Google Maps, Foursquare and Google Tasks, allowing you to easily keep to-do notes and navigate your way to your appointments.

Rounding off the notable changes for SolCalendar 1.5 are new customizable widgets and stickers – including countdown, date and shortcut widgets. While it’s only being announced today, the updated SolCalendar app has already been tested with around 10,000 users and much of their feedback was taken into account before this official release, the company said.
