Our top equipment picks
There are a ton of excellent calendar apps out there for Android users. If you like the stock feel that comes with Google and enjoy comprehensive integration with Google's other platforms, stick with Google Calendar as your primary calendar app. Exporting events from Facebook to Calender is super easy, and this applies to a host of other platforms as well.
Stay organized with Google
Google Calendar comes as the stock calendar app on most phones, and for good reason. You get the ultimate integrated experience with a multitude of Google's own services as well as third-party features, and none of it costs you a dime.
Managing your personal and work schedule from your phone is convenient, but you can make it easier on your eyes. Replace a traditional paper calendar with the Facebook Portal+ smart display for more screen real estate. It can serve as a hub to track all your meet and greets and also bring more features such as video calling and Alexa to the table.
