Google gets a calendar

Google Calendar

The boys and girls at Google have been busy again, this time rolling out a web based calendar service, unsurprisingly named Google Calendar.

The free service, which can be accessed with an existing Gmail or Google account username and password, can import iCal or CSV content, can send email, SMS or pop-up alerts of approaching appointments, supports shared calendars (very very useful), and provides day, week, month, agenda and custom views similar to Apple’s iCal nd Microsoft’s Outlook.

Creating an event is as simple as double clicking on the time or day of the event, and completing the subsequent pop-up box. Clicking the Create Event link on the main page takes you to a more detailed, customisable event entry form with support for reoccuring events, distribution lists and custom reminder times.
