New York, March 11:
There’s some good news for iPhone users. Google has launched a redesigned calendar app for iOS platform or iPhones.
Google has already launched this app for Android platform a couple of months back.
While Google’s calendaring system has always been supported by the default iOS calendar, a host of third-party options have sprung up over the years in an attempt to work better with Google.
The main features Google touts in its redesigned calendar are events, assists, and schedule view, reported The Verge.
Events can automatically take e-mails from your Gmail account and turn them into calendar items.
If you have an e-mail where you’re making plans for dinner at 7:30pm on a particular day and location, Google Calendar can automatically add it for you.
Apart from it, much like auto-fill you’ll get suggestions for places, contacts and so forth as you make entries to your calendar.
The “schedule view” option is quite simple — Google Calendar just shows everything you have on your calendar in a timeline, and it uses Material Design to present attractive cards that give you some context around your upcoming events.
For example, if one has an interview and a lunch coming up in the week, each of those items in the schedule view is visually differentiated by a big, bold graphic that tells the user what each activity is.
The new Google Calendar for iPhone is now available in the app store and works with both standard Gmail accounts and as Google Apps accounts. IANS
