Dial into your meetings with the unique Calendar Calleague app for Windows Phone 8

There are various calendar applications for Windows Phone and we've covered our fair share on this very website. That said, much like the weather apps category, there are always those rare gems you come across that offer unique functionality. Calendar Calleague is one of them. As the name suggests, it's a calendar solution, but you've got the ability to directly dial into conference calls and more.

If you're searching for a more feature-rich calendar experience, or simply desire something more enterprise friendly, you will definitely want to slide on past the break and read up on Calendar Calleague.

From the get go, Calendar Calleague is a diary at heart. As soon as you launch the app for the first time, your eyes are exposed to some gorgeous Modern UI work. Offering basic functionality to get one started, calendars already present on your phone are included automatically. You're essentially good to go as soon as you launch - no setup or pesky wizards.

Multiple views are available, just like in similar applications. Whether you're after a daily, weekly or even monthly breakdown of your entire life, Calendar Calleague is able to provide an easy to digest readout of all your upcoming and past appointments. Adding appointments is simple, but unfortunately Microsoft does not allow the deletion (or edit) of events already stored on Exchange and Outlook.com.

Here's a quick overview video running through exactly what Calendar Calleague is all about:

Not only is there the option to view directions to a specific location (which opens up HERE Maps), you have the ability to dial in directly. As noted above, this is a killer feature for those who find themselves hopping between conference calls. The app itself has built-in support for 15 call providers and can also automatically pull phone numbers and passcodes from meeting listings and initiate dialing.

The Live Tile is a superb addition, supporting multiple sizes in Windows Phone 8 and can even dial into a call without going through the app and selecting a meeting. The current date, alongside synchronised appointments are all displayed for quick view on the Start screen - don't worry about the app settings as that area is fairy easy to navigate.

Did we mention that landscape orientation is supported? The developer notes that more customisations and add-ons will be coming in the future. The best part about Calendar Calleague is that there's no initial fee, so you're able to download and try out the app to see if it's right for you.

You can download Calendar Calleague from the Windows Phone Store for free (requires Windows Phone 8) with in-app purchases available should you wish to optionally support the developer. This upgrade removes the advertisements, adds lockscreen support and the ability to auto dial-in from Live Tiles.
