Please bring back the calendar app that was on the smt520 galaxy tab pro 10 tablet.  Everything about it was perfect.  Events and tasks.  Reminders are useless.  Changing an app for the sake of change does not make it better.  If you won't change the current calendar app, give users the ability to download the old and better calendar app.

Hi @amosmollyandy,

 

Sorry to hear that you've been having difficulty with the new calendar app. We're constantly trying to improve our apps for a better user experience.

 

If you don't mind me asking, what parts of the old calendar app were useful to you? 

 

Cheers,

Jeremy

Jeremy, thank you for inquiring. Old calendar pros 1) both tasks and events can be added to the calendar 2) on the monthly view, both tasks and events are displayed in each day 3) it is easy to add an event or task by pressing the + sign where a pop up screen is displayed on the right hand side keeping the monthly calendar view on the screen as well 4) on the pop up screen either a task or event can be added 5) do not have to enter a time for a task, only a day, which is logical 6) can repeat both tasks and events numerous ways 7) when a day is selected, all events and tasks for that day are displayed on the right hand side, leaving the monthly calendar in view as well 😎 when the task check box is selected, meaning the task is complete, the task appears in the day crossed out, but continues to visible until it us deleted, if ever 9) the monthly view has grid lines around each day easily distinguishing each day. New calendar cons 1) has no tasks so none of the above can be accomplished 2) has useless reminders - have to add a time which when trying to use it as a task is meaningless 3) when adding reminder, another screen is displayed leaving the calendar 4) cannot complete an event or reminder, only delete 5) when i converted my data from the smt520 to the smt720 it converted my tasks to reminders without any dates. I want the old calendar back please. sincerely amosmollyandy

Jeremy.. now that I have explained what I like about the SM-T520 calendar...can I download that version to my SM-T720? There is no other calendar that compares to the old calendar for my purposes. sincerely
