If you want to add a recurring event based on quirky (but normal) calendar rules, it's not supported by Google Calendar. For example, if you set up a financial calendar in Google Calendar and an event falls on a weekend or bank holiday, Google Calendar cannot schedule the occurrence properly. Worse yet, if you submit those calendar occurences via VEVENT details, Google Calendar displays different information if you use the mobile calendar vs. the desktop web calendar. See More
All views have an option of adding a new event by tapping the plus sign at the lower right corner of the screen. This opens up a form and allows the user to add a location, start/end times, guests, description, color-code as well as choosing if it's an all day event, how often it repeats, how many and what kind of reminders are needed and setting the users availability and privacy settings.

Google Calendar has a monochrome base design that's accented with colored-coded events and image banners that separate months in schedule view. The app has 5 different views - schedule, day, 3-day, week and month. Day, 3-day and week views split up the days horizontally and hours vertically. Month view lays out all days in a grid and displays up to 3 events in a day. Schedule view displays an agenda view that allows browsing all events by swiping vertically. Additionally, the way events are displayed in the agenda view is context-aware. For example, adding an event called "gym" will display the event on a background with a dumbbell. All views except for month view can be split horizontally to display a condensed month view at the top that can be navigated by swiping horizontally. Events can be added from any view by clicking the red plus button that's available at the bottom-right corner of the screen. See More
The app has semi-transparent and customizable homescreen widgets for agenda and month views. Attributes that can be customized include choosing between light and dark themes, 12 and 24 hour clock, if the widget header should be displayed as well as adjusting opacity level and date range among other options.

To quickly add an event, each view has an option to either click a plus button somewhere on the screen or long-press a date to bring up a form. The long-press form will allow entering only the event name and assume that it's an all day event, while the plus button form allows setting the event duration as well. Both forms have an edit button for a adding more detailed information. This way in addition to selecting an event name and date, there's an ability to add location, start/end times, guests, description, color-code as well as choosing if it's an all day event, how often it repeats, how many and what kind of reminders are needed and setting users availability and privacy settings.

The interface is easy to use. The app's main view combines an agenda view with a two week view above it. This lets you keep an eye on your high level schedule over the next few weeks while also seeing the highest priority upcoming events. The two week view can be expanded into a month view by swiping down on it. Swiping to the right from the main view gives access to a 3-day view that's split into hours. Agenda view includes various informative details such as information about upcoming weather conditions, a countdown for upcoming events and contextual icons, such as "meeting", "movie", "food", "flight" to events to help get a quick overview of what's planned at a glance.
