If you use android there is an application called "Drukpa Calender" which is for free on google store. It is excellent.

Seconded: charming, useful, but sometimes clunky. I recently dropped it in favour of standard Google calendar into which you can quickly insert the dates you want from e.g. the Shambhala lunar calendar at https://www.shambhala.com/tibetan-lunar-calendar/

Unfortunately I can't get the thing to do what it's supposed to, which is simply to add Shambhala's calendar to my own at one go. I don't know if that's a bug, a mistake on my part, or what. Anyway, it's another way of doing it.

Maybe Rigpa have got too much else to think about, what with the scandal and the outflow of support.
All the best

There's also the FPMT calendar.

If you follow Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, there's always Alendar: http://alendar.org/

It also has haircutting days as well as a large amount of other astrological advice.

It's a nice app. Hope they add Naga and Sang offering days.
