Google Calendar Gets Mobile May 25, 2007

Posted by ronandi in Cool, News.

Yesterday, Google rolled out yet another reason to give its calendar a try–a version that squishes it down into a phone-friendly format. This is a complement to full-blown Google Calendar rather than a complete calendar app: Basically, you can see your schedule, move backwards and forwards one day at a time, and use a quick-scheduling feature to enter appointments in plain English (“staff meeting tomorrow at 3pm”). And that’s kind of the point–it’s not overloaded with clutter, and pops up quickly, so you can see what’s on your plate at a glance.

The bad…

There’d be significant downsides to this strategy–it takes a bit longer to get into Google Calendar than to pull up a calendar that’s stored in your phone, and you wouldn’t be able to check your schedule if you were someplace that Internet access doesn’t reach (like, say, on a phone).

Like I say, this initial phone version of Calendar is pretty Spartan–you can’t even change or delete existing appointments. For now, though, there’s only one feature I really want on my phone that it doesn’t seem to have: I don’t see any way to quickly jump to any date. Checking an appointment two months in the future would apparently involve dozens of clicks–you’d have to get there one day at a time.
