Google Calendar: Time Planner

Review

The new Google Calendar app is bigger and better than ever. Thanks to recent upgrades, Google Calendar can not only enhance your schedule organization but is also easily accessible and fun to use. With the smart and cutting-edge features, events can be automatically created from your email and appointments suggested for you.

Design 5/5

This app has been revamped with an innovative material design theme introduced by Google in Android Lollipop. Google Calendar now has a much cleaner design with few distractions as well as colorful graphics. All these add personality to a previously dull application. It is now highly differentiated from the utilitarian design present in the desktop version.

In the app, you can have different views of your calendar. Navigating it has a very familiar feel. Your viewing options include daily, three days, weekly, and monthly schedule. All these options show you your plans as a list and are accessible via a drop-down picker located on the top left of the screen.

Content and Features 5/5

All features you would expect are present in Google Calendar. This includes multiple calendar access, custom notifications and meeting invites. Further still, you can use this app with Yahoo, iCloud or Microsoft Exchange accounts.

The creation of new events is extremely easy via this application. There is an autocomplete tool that assists you in creating events much quicker by giving suggestions while you type. Just a few letters into the typing, the app has already made recommendations on the appointments with the highest relevance.

After naming your event, the app gives a prompt to add a location. Therefore, you get directions and include guests to append their contact information. From this point, you can change time, set reminders, invite guests, change color labels, set event repeats and add notes. Upon saving it, it will appear on the calendar just as expected.

User Experience 5/5

Most users love the layout of the app as it is very easy to understand. The meeting alerts save people from getting late or forgetting important meetings. The personal design touches also keep the application from looking dull. Google Calendar intelligently recognizes and categorizes some types of events such as flights, meals, movie nights and fitness classes. It will add illustrations to help you differentiate them while scrolling through your schedule view. The ability to add a location to events enables you to view venues on Google Maps and get accurate directions. Each month has themed illustrations just like a wall calendar.

Compatibility 5/5

The latest Google Calendar app works on iOS 10.0 and above. It is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. It works on most Android devices, but the compatibility with your particular gadget may vary so check the Play Store to see if it is supported.

Conclusion

If you have not started using Google Calendar, you should. Google has put a great deal of effort and thought into this fantastic application. The calendar makes the task of scheduling extremely easy. Download it from the Play Store or App Store and give it a try today.
