Iconical (free) – calendar appointments in wide live tiles

Iconical-Start Iconical-Details

Iconical is a free app for WP 7.8 / WP 8 that lets you display upcoming calendar appointments in one or more iconic wide tiles. Now you can see your upcoming appointments even if they are more than a couple of days away!

You can create multiple iconicals for personal or corporate calendar accounts, filter appointments by Subject keyword (e.g. birthday) from aggregated calendars, and pin them to the Start screen as wide tiles.

The minimalistic / metro look of the wide tiles can be customized with different tile colors (20 standard accent colors, plus carrier-specific colors), reminder background colors, and more. No data services are needed to run this app, and it’s easy on resources during tile updates.


  • Appointments: choose the time interval for appointment search (up to 1 year), filter by Subject keyword, and choose for how long to display all-day events.
  • Accounts: select the calendar accounts to be used for appointment search, e.g. Outlook, Windows Live, Google.
  • Text: set the tile Title, choose whether to show “all day” for all-day appointments, and control the visibility of the time when the live tile was last updated.
  • Background Color: pick the tile background color from 20 standard accent colors, plus additional carrier-specific colors.
  • Reminder Color: enable the reminder to have the tile background color change automatically as soon as the reminder interval has been reached.

All iconicals that are pinned to the Start screen are updated periodically, typically every 30 minutes.
