Any third party calendar apps that you are currently using or would recommend?
ie have a Snapshot of the weekly events or even Monthly Outline.
(Live Title Update is not a requirement, but if it has this function, would be nice :-)
i'm ok with either Paid or Free Apps

I just bought appointile, it's very good if you want to see more on your live tile. Calendar+ is a good app for viewing your entire calendar, Appointile doesn't really do that. The tile options for Calendar+ aren't great that's why I've used both. At some point someone will put it all together in a single app. :)
Just tried Chrono, it's very good as well, but the tile seems to be low res.
One somewhat annoying thing about the calendar apps is they are all pull by nature so if you have a new meeting created it doesn't automatically update the tile like the built-in calendar app does.

Thanks for all your replies....I appreciate it ..
after reading the reviews and doing some homework, I think i will give Appointile a go...it is not exactly "cheap", and there are still some bugs ...and issues to be ironed out. ..but i can see the developer is engaging the end user to improve the apps and updating the software...which personally i feel it very important...
AppoinTile forum / JDB Pocketware
but on general I'm just quite shocked from the "lack of proper calendar app" ...
i won't wana go into another round of discussion...but i feel Windows really need to get more "basic and good apps" out there instead of random 170,000 apps ...

I have my Outlook at work through exchange all integrated. Can set up meetings, accept, note late. Sync tasks from work and personal.
I guess I have a hard time understated what's missing...? The native app seems so powerful already.

what would be nice for the native calendar app on the 8x is being able to further customize your occurrences.
I'm unable to find the option to specify a specific occurrence to end instead of having it continue on throughout the whole year.
for example: if you want to add your school schedule and lets say it starts january 28th and a certain class ends in may 20th, and that class in on tuesdays and thursdays, i'm
unable to specifically make that reoccurring event end on may 20th . Unless i'm blind as a bat slash ray charles any help would be appreciated.
However if i'm on my desktop and in outlook calendar i'm able to specify an end date for that reoccurring event and sync my calendar phone.
Wonder if there is any way to do that through the phone instead of having to hop on the computer or if there is an app that you can recommend that has that ability.
