The default calendar widget for the Nokia N97 homescreen is a very poor solution considering the real estate available. Although it displays your next event or meeting, it only supports one notification and defeats the object of having a widget, as you have to open the calendar application regularly to view your upcoming events. Well, thanks to Michael Prager’s ComingNext, it is now possible to display 4 notifications in a single widget. ComingNext is a calendar homescreen widget for the Nokia N97 that sports a dual panel mode, where each panel can display up to 4 upcoming events. The widget can be customized to your needs easily and pulls out details from you default calendar to display directly on your homescreen.
The best part of ComingNext though is the vast amount of user-changeable settings available. Not only can you control the various colors and labels, but you can also change which calendar application the widget launches! This means if you use a more powerful calendar application, like SBSH Calendar or Handy Calendar, you can program ComingNext to launch that, rather than the default built-in calendar application.
You can download ComingNext from our S60 5th Edition Applications page. The zip file includes 2 copies of the widget, so that you can have up to 8 upcoming entries in total.Tags | Applications, Calendar, Coming Next, Homescreen, N97, N97 mini, Nokia, S60, S60 5th Edition, Symbian, Touch UI, Widget
