Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro GNOME Native integration
Calendar for GNOME aims to find the perfect balance between features and usability.
Pro Currently in active development
GNOME Calendar is improved with every release cycle of GNOME.
It has online accounts integration.
Pro Big time and date
This is a functional watch face. At just a moment's glance you can tell what the time and date are.
It's a Batman watchface which is super cool among a certain crowd. Others may not like it, but it's your watch.
Pro Support both round and square displays
The design of the watchface is simple so it isn't distracting, but it's interesting enough (if you like BatMan at least) to make you stand out.
Pro Batman's chin
Con Continues to pop-up reminders that are turned off and they cannot ever be removed
The GNOME Calendar displays pop-ups from an old Google Calendar that was used. That Google Calendar has long since been removed from GNOME, and even with the notifications turned off on the GNOME Calendar, the pop-ups still happen.
Con Extremely Buggy
Con Can't read 'all-day' events with dark theme
Text is white on light blue with dark themes. The workaround: assign all-day events to just one hour.
Con No support yet for WebCal
No support yet for WebCal, such as those offered by Facebook events.
A workaround exists. Since this application uses the same background services as Evolution, installing it and adding the WebCal calendars there, also adds them to GNOME Calendar.
Con Poor interoperability with online calendars
Does not connect to Fastmail.
