Eventail Screenshot on iPhoneX


All your calendars right where you want them.

Eventail is a power user's calendar home screen widget for iOS.

It displays your upcoming events and reminders in a compact way that allows you to review your upcoming schedule at a glance.

Eventail goes beyond basic widget interaction. It allows you to create multiple pages, which combined with a stack allows you to effectively scroll through your events right on your homescreen.

Apps relevant to displayed events can be opened directly from the widget. Multiple mapping and conference services are supported. Visit the ever growing list of supported actions

Eventail receives regular updates with new features and bugfixes. Check out what is new.

Glance over your schedule, one page at a time
