In a recent development, software giant Google has officially released a Google Calendar app for Android devices on Google Play. Initially the app was exclusive only to the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, however, now it will help all the Android users to keep track of their calendar for daily usage.
Google Calendar app features include ability to create, edit, and delete events, view calendars (including non-Google) in one spot, and quickly email related people to event with a customizable message. The app is available for Android 4.0.3 devices and higher, however, reportedly Google has warned that there will be some issues with HTC devices.
Reports from 9to5Google has noted that, “Day and week views may not work on some HTC devices. Notes and pictures may be removed from all calendar events, but will still be available in HTC’s Notes app, even local unsynced events may be lost after installing Google Calendar. Notifications won’t make sounds unless HTC’s Calendar app is disabled and touching an email invitation in a mail app opens Calendar in the browser rather than the app.”
Meanwhile, take a look at the new features below:
- Snooze events directly from a notification if you’re not quite ready and want to be reminded later.
- Use predefined messages to send quick "I'll be late" updates to your event participants directly from the notifications or the event itself (of course, you can always write your own).
- Pinch to zoom in and out of a day.
- Set a home time zone to help you manage your time better when traveling.
In addition, Google has also expanded the sync period so that users can review past events from up to one year ago directly on their Android device.
