Multiple home-screens on Android allow the user to keep all sorts of widgets on the home screen. The calendar widget is an extremely useful widget which helps in remembering all the important events in the near future. There are various calendar widget apps available on the Google Play Store. But there are some people who still prefer the traditional calendar with a picture. For such users, there is a wonderful app – Picture Calendar Widget.
As the name suggests, this widget comes with the traditional format of the calendar with a picture. The widget shows the image and a traditional month view calendar with the current date highlighted. The user has to just add the widget, tap on the picture and then simply select the picture that he/she wants on the home-screen. This app also has the option to assign a caption to the image on the picture.
