If you're not familiar with Cal, it's a new minimalist calendar client for Windows Phone. While this category of apps is already overflowing with different developers attempting to offer the perfect calendar solution, Cal is a unique experience and is well worth the download should you still be seeking that superb app.

Today, we're looking at version 1.1.0, which has just been published to the store. This is a rather large update so be sure to head on past the break to see what's new.

​As well as adding a few new features, the release also addresses a few issues consumers were experiencing, notably Facebook sync errors and calendars disappearing. It's an important update for current users. Here's everything that's new in version 1.1.0:

  • Custom calendar colors
  • Week view
  • Today button
  • Choose font (default/WP)
  • Light theme
  • Use phone accent color as app accent color
  • Fast app resume
  • Performance optimizations
  • Fixed Facebook sync bug
  • Fixed calendars disappearing
  • Fixed livetile not updating when using a background image

You can grab Cal from the Windows Phone Store for free as a trial and it will cost you $1.99 to keep it installed. Since you're able to test drive the experience, there's no reason why you shouldn't give it a go. Thanks, Chainer, for the tip!
