    Week cal is great. It's all I use. It has great views. The best is the week view. Anything you add in iOS calendars appears there and vice versa.

    Well I recommend you to try fantastical 2 app. It's on test period atm here and so far it does some things better than stock app. Search YouTube videos for reviews which also gives good picture. Have to add that it isn't free app.

    The Fantastical 2 widget is much better than what you get with the stock calendar app. Calendar apps-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415290356.374431.jpg
    It syncs with both the calendar and reminder apps.

    It depends on your needs. I'd argue that the native Calendar app is sufficient for a large portion of iOS users, however, if you'd like to simply experiment with a few of the 3rd party Calendar apps, then a couple of the more populars ones are as follows:

    1. Fantastical
    2. Calendars by Readdle
    3. Week Calendar

    In fact, you can read iMore Blog reviews of several Calendar apps via the following links.

    Just wondering why the stock calendar app doesn't show events in the widget section, any idea ? It just says no events but I do have event when for today...

    That's the Tomorrow Summary that shows Calendar events. It's had issues showing the Tomorrow Summary for some time. I have no clue about it.

    Another vote for Fantastical2. It's just a better over all calendar experience.

    I don't know, I had that happen twice (not in the tomorrow view) when I actually did have appointments for the day.
    Now I use the widget from Calendar 5, it doesn't have that issue.

    Go into Notifications under phone settings and turn off notifications for the stock calendar app.
