NoteCalendar is priced at $1.56 in the Android Market, and is normally priced at $1.50 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

NoteCalendar is described as follows:
Get Your Calendar Under Control

NoteCalendar allows you to organize your monthly tasks with ease. Save your notes and memos to the calendar. NoteCalendar features the option to add memos to an easy-to-read calendar. Simply tap the day you want to make a note for, and then add your memo. From there, you can set a color tab that shows up on the calendar. Tapping on the day brings up the memo you wrote.

Your Calendar, Your Way

Customize the calendar to your preference, including starting day of the week, touch sensitivity, weekly/monthly views, and standby mode. The arrow keys allow you to conveniently browse the calendar memos by going backward or forward through the days. Or, tap on Today button to go back to today's date. There is also a search option.

More Options

Schedule repeating events either by date range or by the day of the week. Toggle the alarm vibration on and off. You can also import/export the calendar from the SD card, as well as e-mail or post your events to Twitter and Facebook. And if you want to keep your calendar away from prying eyes, NoteCalendar supports password protection.
NoteCalendar has a rating of 4.7 stars in the Android Market and a rating of 3.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The big problem is that the calendar doesn't sync to Google's own Calendar in the cloud. It's unclear why anyone would release a calendar like that. Honestly, because of that omission, we'd skip this one.

Those who are considering "buying" a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers.

Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term "App Store." Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
