Yahoo Mail

It’s alright. You do not have to feel embarrassed. No no, don’t you pretend like you don’t know what I am talking about, you know exactly what I am saying. Yes, it is a little something that begins with a ‘Y’, it started out when we were little and we ended up making embarrassing e-mail IDs on it that we once bragged about. Don’t forget that it is that very thing that made you cool at one point in time. Yes, I am talking about none other than Yahoo Mail!

I know it is old and every one has moved on to Gmail, with classier email accounts. But, remember — old is still gold. And when you have a topnotch email service at your disposal, why not make use of your old Yahoo Mail account and test out the refined version of their mailing functionality. You might just like it.

Yes, it is true that every smartphone has a calendar but if you are someone who uses their calendar as a planner then the basic calendar that is built in the phone is not good enough. Yes, there are planers available separately, however, nothing can beat aCalendar – the Android Calendar.

The usage of a calendar is beyond which day falls on which date. It is much more, including birthdays, anniversaries, important meetings, events and much more. And one needs tools to make this easier, for example, colour coordinating a calendar based on personal and professional events. This makes planning our lives much easier. Thus, aCalendar is ideal to plan our day to day happenings.

aCalendar includes the following features:

– intuitive navigation with smooth transitions between day, week and month view
– 48 colors per calendar, 12 per-event colors if supported by the calendar (Android 4.1+ with Google calendars only)
– flexible recurrences (e.g., every 2 weeks or every 3rd day – first select weekly or daily, then set the interval)
– birthdays with photos from your address book and editing
– Fullscreen widgets for all 3 views plus floating 7 days
– uses Android’s native calendar backend and synchronization
– no battery drain (aCalendar gets push updated from the system instead of using frequent polling)
– moon phases and zodiac signs for birthdays
– QR and NFC barcode sharing of events
– free
– no ads

There is also a aCalendar+ version with the following features:

With aCalendar+ you get a dozen of extra features including more views, advanced settings, Tasks, more color themes and public holidays.
Also you’ll find business-oriented features like invitations, free/busy settings and sharing as text or file.
Finally your purchase helps protect the habitat of the endangered Mountain Tapir as they donate 10% of all revenue to rainforest conservation through our friends at World Land Trust.

Here is how aCalendar, the android calendar is used:

– move forward and backward by swiping vertically or volume rocker
– switch between calendar views with a horizontal swipe (opens the day or week you start the swipe gesture on) or double-tap for day view
– tap to open event
– long-press to add new event
– long-press on mini-month to go to today or jump to date
– tap on photo to open quick contact menu
– 3-finger-tap to go to today

native language support for around 30 languages. Those are mostly user-contributed, please contact me if there is a bad translation or you’d like your language added!

aCalendar only asks for mandatory permissions for its functionality: Read and write contact data for birthdays as well as read and write calendar data for events. ‘Send Email to guests’ is bound to ‘write calendar data’ by Google. NFC is for sharing events by touching another NFC-enabled phone, and requires manual confirmation.

Unfortunately app2SD cannot be supported, because home screen widgets do not work from SD. This is an Android limitation. But, aCalendar is optimized not only for speed but also for size.

So if you need something more than the usual, run-of-the-mill, in-built phone calendars, aCalendar for Android is the go-to app!
