Sep 11, 2013 12:45 PM –
The All-in-One Agenda Widget is a cool and functional productivity app that gives you a large display widget that provides four interactive tabs for different functions. The app will sit on your homescreen in various sizes and shows all your appointments, only calendar appointments, birthdays and Facebook events. The is highly configurable and, for a fee, lets you unlock additional features like weather forecast and clock. If your daily life needs a bit of organisation, this might be one app to help you.
Price: Free plus in-app purchases for additional features
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Neat user interface!
- Lots of functionality!
- Excellent tab system for viewing different information!
- Use multiple widgets with different configurations!
- Unlockables are individually priced and the full unlock price is very expensive.
- Doesn’t have the ability to include tasks.
All-in-One Agenda Widgets is a useful, intuitive and slick looking homescreen widget that displays all your appointments, calendar events and upcoming birthdays in one handy space. It’s packed with scrollable calendar and contacts data meaning everything is accessible and at your fingertips.
At a time when everyone is going back to school or college, it’s a good time to get yourself organised. All-in-One Widget is a simple and powerful way of helping that. The app is very easy to use and the way you can tab through different types of information is very cool. You can scroll through future appointments, view calendar events and even view upcoming birthdays if they are stored in your contacts info.
The app works very well but additionally offers a number of enhancements to improve the app further. One of these is Facebook integration, meaning it will deliver your friends birthday dates into your calendar. There’s also a clock and weather forecast feature to add if you choose and this provides a bar at the top of the widget for these features. Also, the ‘Smart birthdays’ feature will give you prior notification of friend and family birthdays so you can get something organised in advance!
While the widget is great, I felt the extra features were expensive for what they were. The features are itemized and you can buy them separately or you can unlock them all for a reduced fee. For example you can add the top bar and clock for £1.23 ($1.99), Facebook integration for £1.86 ($2.99) and so on.
For all the features: Facebook, TopBar (with clock), Weather and Smart Birthdays you can make a one-off payment of £5.02 (just under $8). For what you get for $8, I though the price was very steep. To encourage customers, the developer casually suggests in the description that these features come “For the cost of a coffee” but seriously, who pays $8 for a single coffee?? It’s not just me thinking this either, there are plenty of comments in the Google Play Store which suggest that the app is good but that the price is just too high. In the context of other, less expensive apps, All-in-One Agenda Widget just isn’t good value.
The price point aside, it’s a fine little app and very useful. Being able to see birthdays and your agenda in one place is pretty cool- even if you can get these features elsewhere. The functionality works well and the app helps you stay organised and productive.

For keeping you on schedule and organised, the app is a pretty cool addition to your homescreen. It can provide various types of information for managing your work and social life, and I thought the fact you can configure multiple widgets differently very handy indeed.
Ease of Use:
The app is very easy to use and the tab design idea is highly intuitive and simple to play with.
If you went all in and paid for the full features, it’s easily an app you might consult several times per day. Even with the free features it’s a useful app to adopt and be your go-to productivity app. If you use it, it’ll be something you use regularly.
The interface is nice- I’d like to see it a bit more ‘Holo-fied’ but it looks good and works well.
