Google Calendar is live

By sMoRTy71 ·
While it had been rumored for quite some time, Google has launched their new Calendar app.

http://www.google.com/calendar/

So far, it looks pretty similar to another calendar app (Kiko) that I had just started using this week.

Anyone else going to give it a try?

I might

by Dr Dij In reply to Google Calendar is live

but I've been using Yahoo's calendar for quite a while. Not sure if I should bother.

WIll have to see if it has more features, but how many features can a calendar have?

Google is starting to creep me out

by gralfus In reply to Google Calendar is live

They seem to want to know everything about everyone, and archive emails, etc. I don't usually lean towards conspiracy theory, but Google makes me wonder sometimes. If you tried to extract a lot of information from people, it would be difficult, but offer a free online service and they spill their guts.

I'll stick to my wall calendar.

Hmm, very average

by techrepublic In reply to Google Calendar is live

I was expecting something quite cool and ajaxy, but this is a very ordinary calendar. I used the Yahoo web calendar for a while, but the bugs in intellisync eventually turned me off.

I'm still waiting for an online calendar that syncs seamlessly with Outlook; I presume there are rather a lot of other people who also would like this, as outlook (and express) is the #1 calendar app out there. The web-interface for Exchange is all well and good, but I'm after something lightweight that other people, outside of the exchange server, can use.

There's a gap in the market, and this aint going to fill it.

Seamless synching with Outlook

by tokyojerry2011 In reply to Hmm, very average

Their is something out there that may very well meet your needs, and is growing in popularity: www.plaxo.com. It will maintain synchronization with your Outlook (or Outlook Express, or Mozilaa Thunderbird) calendars, contacts, notes, and tasks. Accessible from anywhere and always stays up-to-date, real time if you download the Plaxo plugin for Outlook, for example. Any changes to your contacts, calendars, etc., will be replicated to your online database.

Thanks, interesting, But still full of stupid flaws.

by techrepublic In reply to Seamless synching with Ou ...

Plaxo seems quite nice, albeit a bit strange to configure to synchronise automatically.
Problem is, it's still got some niggly problems, e.g. all-day events spreading over 2 days, cache flag incorrect on images.
I'll run with it for a while however, as it's better than other calendars.

Basic Calendar

by Jowadi In reply to Google Calendar is live

I agree with several of the posts before - it looks pretty basic.
I will stick with Yahoo! for now.
