Google finally released their Calendar app into Beta after weeks of speculation with leaked screenshots etc. As usual, the interface is sleek, straightforward and easy to use.
But when I used the app last week after it was launched, I noticed that it was very unresponsive. I ran into “oops… an error has occurred” several times within a span of minutes. Beta…. But it looks like it has been fixed and today it was a much better experience.
Two features that I think is great.
- Just clicking on a specific time slot pops up a box to add an event to that timeslot. It is that simple.
- They also have built-in calendars for holidays in different countries, which can be added to your calendar’s view. Pretty neat feature especially if your work involves interacting with people from various countries.
Overall, it is a nice app to begin with. But I am not sure where this app (just like several other Google apps) fits into the whole scheme of things for Google in the long run.
