Make the most out of your Home Screen and Lock Screen with handy widgets from Calendars.

To add a Calendars widget on Home Screen, follow these steps:

Widget stacks allow you to make multiple similarly-sized widgets overlay each other so that they occupy the same area of your home screen. For example, you can stack two small Calendars widgets and swap between them instead of adding a large one.

To create a widget stack, drag and drop one widget into another similarly sized one. That’s it!

To remove the whole stack, long-tap on the widget to enter the jiggle mode and tap the minus sign at the top left of the widget stack.
