    Looking for an iOS app, for iPhone, that will display the Google calendar in Month view. Yeah... Google Calendar app won't do it. iOS built in app won't do it.

    Most of the calendar apps I looked at cost $, and I'm not about to just start plunking down money for something I can't try.

    What is going to give me this view, that has worked well for you?

    Default calendar does. I also use Calendars 5 because it offers copy/paste function that is then also reflected on native iOS Calendar and Google Calendar if you use that. Native iOS Calendar doesn't copy/paste appointments to other dates. :vbmad:

    I wish you'd asked this last week when Calendars 5 was the FREE App of the Week from App Store. I've used it for years, since it was free anyway.

    Default calendar on an iPad shows month view. On an iPhone, it shows some half baked numeric calendar, with the selected day events listed at the bottom. It does not show the full month overview.

    Wife is getting increasingly frustrated trying to do this google calendar thing on iOS. :sad:
    She said she can manage it that way, but trying to use the Google Calendar app and having to scroll through days vertically, or scroll a week horizontally is beyond clunky. To say she is envious of the month view on my Samsung is an understatement. *sigh*

    Lauren, can you show me how to get it to that view on the default calendar? I seriously could not find it. I was beyond irritated last night and gave up.

    This was the most I could get out of the default calendar app...

    You're right. I see more info on iPad iOS Calendar. Readdle has a free version called Calendars. I used that version until the paid version was offered as an upgrade to existing users when first introduced in 2009.

    Thanks for the link, Jig.
    The instructions you provided, got me to where I was last night. You need an iPad to get the full month overview, at least that is what I found and what this site seems to indicate.

    Thank you, Lauren! I'll have her give it a go in just a bit. :)

    The ability to copy appointments to future dates was a Palm DBk6 feature that I can't live without. :vbsmile:
