Like the iOS version, Events for Android also lets you add your phone's calendar to see if you have any conflicts with what you'd like to attend. Unfortunately, Play Store reviews indicate that users aren't very pleased with the app's UI so far, saying it looks like a poor port from the version made for Apple devices. You might want to wait just a tad longer before relying on the new app to organize and suggest items for your calendar.
To be clear, you could already look up happenings from your browser or Facebook app, but this service makes it easier to find something to do that might be more relevant to your location or interests. The social network said Events already sees 450 million users worldwide, making it a very useful tool that harnesses its massive footprint to provide comprehensive listings. That utility and potentially vast audience could give Events a longer shelf life than Facebook's other short-lived standalone offerings.
