If you like the Japanese TV detective drama series, Aibō, you should check out Aibo Calendar for Android smartphones.
This is not a mere calendar app. It lets you know your schedule with Ukyo's or Takeru's voices, all of which were newly recorded for this app.
If you are using Google Calendar, you can sync your schedule, so you don't need to input your schedule from scratch. As the next air time is marked on the calendar by default, it won't let you skip the program. Of course it is notified by voice. And you can also check the synopsis of the next episode by clicking the link on the calendar.
The app contains ten voice patterns.
As there are fourteen pictures for the top menu, and nine pictures for the background of the calendar, you can make your original Aibō Calendar. In addition, you can check the tweets from Aibō's account with this app.
The overall antique style of the app seems to reflect the background of Ukyo, who studied in England.
I regret to find that the pictures were not newly taken. For the price, the amount of original elements is a little unsatisfactory. I hope updates that add more features.
Even so, it is still a must-have app for Aibō fans like me.
