Holy toledo! I have been using Week Calendar (on app store) since I got my iPhone 1 month ago. I was a Palm OS guy, and depended totally on the calendar. Losing Palm OS was very sad for me. The best app on Palm OS was a program called Datebk6. It was a terrific calendar and PIM. Best of all for me was the event templating. Nothing was better. Now, along comes Week Calendar, and their latest release, 3.0. This has the templating along with storing the starting date. It is just amazing. I no longer miss my Palm calendar. Furthermore, it syncs immediately to Google Calendar via exchange server, which is an advantage over the old Palm OS system. I just can't tell you how delighted I am with this app. And all of it for $1.99. I would have paid $30 to have a usable calendar. So, for those of you looking for something like Datebk6, this is the one. Just amazing.
And no, I am not affiliated with them in any way. I think they are based in Iceland! Every email I have sent them has been replied to within a few hours. Just terrific.

Can you set alerts directly through this app? I came from a BlackBerry and miss the "Reminder at 0 minutes" option.
Do you open this app instead of the standard calendar?

I actually own Week Calendar, as well. Currently, it is relegated to a secondary folder off the first page, whereas CalenGoo is down on the dock, visible from everywhere.
The big problem I'm having with Week Calendar is it doesn't play nicely with Google Apps accounts, so it doesn't pick up all my subscribed calendars.
As to appointment templates, I don't believe so, but it's not a feature I would use. Appointments are appointments, non?
For my purposes Week Calendar does it all. Templates, beautiful native integration, looks like iCal but much better, custom colors, tremendous flexibility, and works like a native iOS app. Just great. All for $1.99. I would have paid $30 for it!
Does Calengoo have templates? That is the most important feature to me.

I've been in touch with their tech support. They don't seem to know how to deal with Google Apps accounts. Hopefully they'll work on it. As I stated earlier, I don't see the point in an appointment template. I don't believe Calengoo has them, but I wouldn't say it with 100% certainty.
Ah yes, PocketInformant. Got that, too. And Calvetica. I like Calengoo better.
BTW, you don't need Google calendars for Calengoo. It works with any Exchange client or MobileMe.

I have Week Calendar and Google Apps and I see all of the subscribed Account calendars of my colleagues. I sync them using CalDAV. My calendar is synced using exchange. The only subscribed Google calendars it won't let me sync are added calendars such as sports team schedules, US holidays, etc.

How do I get my shared Google Calendars to show up?
"You need to tell Google to sync all your sub-calendars to your iPhone: you can do that here: https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect .
Exchange / Second option
If that doesn't work, please try the following:
From your iPhone browser, go to http://m.google.com/sync
Sign in with your account and you will be able to select calendars you want to sync with your iPhone.
Please ensure that the language of Google's site is set to English for your iPhone
Go back to the calendar application and you will have all your calendars you have selected."
I found that using the m.google.com/sync from the phone browser itself was the ticket. Have you tried that?
