On my iPhone I have a Calendar icon that displays the date and opens the Calendar app.

I had something similar for Android but it appears to be removed from the Play store.

  • There are calendar widgets available by default with Android. Don't they do the job? AFAIR the 1x1 calendar widget does exactly that: show the current date, and open the calendar when tapped. I you don't have that (I just checked the only device with stock Android I have and it's not there): what size should it be? What details should it show? You can find some calendar widgets here in my list by the way.

There appears to be tons of options under the option "Day Widget" under the play store.

This is the one I am currently using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.o172.DayWidget
