Google Calendar escapes into public use..



There have been rumors for (years?) a long time at least, that google was preparing something known as cl2 which would be a calendar with full gmail integration. There were screenshots, many of which were photoshopped from another web calendar, but there were others that were more convincing… well, as of late yesterday Google Calendar has escaped in to public view. http://www.google.com/calendar. I first tried logging in through my gmail account thinking I might see info there, but I didn’t, so I went to the above link and answered a question about what time zone I’m in, then got to see the main interface.


I’ve barely had enough time for a first impression yet…. although there are several other articles on the event.

Just a quick look has me wanting a bit tighter integration from the gmail login, but I suspect that will come in time. Just as a calendar app it looks quite useful. I still like having a paper printout of my calender, so one of the things I’ll be curious about is being able to get a nice print for “disconnected” use.

Look for a bit more detail in a more recent post on google calendar here.

  1. Google Calendar revisited-- Avery J. Parker - Web site hosting and computer service Says:


    [...] When Google Calendar first rolled out, I took a look and was not overwhelmed. Now, I’ve had a chance to revisit and see a few improvements. First, one of my initial problems was that I couldn’t get to calendar from gmail. The code has now been added in the upper left corner to navigate between the two (or the google homepage, or their “other services”). This was missing when I first looked. I distinctly remember seeing it in one of the testing screenshots. Even immediately after I had started out with the Calendar, the link was still not there. I’m not sure when, but it’s there now. Good. [...]
