Hi all

I am using an android smart phone and was wondering if anyone knows any free calendar app / even reminder app in which events/reminders can be added online (via a PC) as well as can be synced with the app for the same and be able to set a reminder etc....?? .i have google calendar but its so complicated, specially online and i am not able to set reminders and/or unable to change the reminder tone settings etc. I have also used acalendar app / Gnotes app etc but they are all paid... kindly advise.

Google Keep is ideal for keeping simple notes and will sync across platforms. If you want something with some more organisation try One Note, again it syncs across devices.

As for calendar I have always used the Google offering. Create appointments on the PC and then get reminders on the phone. You can change the notification sound within the app
open calendar, click the three line hamburger, scroll to bottom and select settings, then general and untick standard tone. Follow on screen instructions to select a new tone. Zedge is a good source of notifications.

Hi Space_cowby

google offerings ?...i guess you mean google calendar ...i have tried it but very complicated and i have been using Onenote and google keep but i wasnt sure if google keep did or allowed to set up reminders. I will however try google calendar and try to work it out. i tried google calendar today and the reminders beep just twice and i still cant find any options to increase that either to a ring tone or longer beeps etc which will grab my attention..i will do as you said about the ring tone....but however. many many thanks...

You could try outlook on Android, outlook.com on your pc.

The android app has a full diary and you can customise the notification sound.

The Google calendar on your phone allows you to change the sound!
Touch the hamburger bar (top left). Touch general, then scroll down to the notifications section.
Slide the 'use standard notification sound' to off, and a new option to choose a sound appears. Click that and you can choose any music file on your phone.
