CalenGoo vs Google Calendar
Last updated: August 23, 2018
CalenGoo gives you a fast and easy way to access and change your Google Calendar (or Google Apps Calendar) with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It even works when you have no internet connection. Changes are saved and uploaded the next time you are connected.
Google Calendar is a free time-management web application offered by Google. The Ajax-driven interface enables users to view, add, and drag-and-drop events from one date to another without reloading the page. It supports view modes such as weekly, monthly, and agenda. Google Calendar allows multiple calendars to be created and shown in the same view. Each can be shared, either read-only or with full edit control, and either with specified people or with everyone (public calendars).
Face to face in the news:
2017 - Google redesigned Calendar for web to win over CalenGoo
Google rolled out new updates for the web version of Google Calendar, finally giving PC users the sleek layout and intuitive controls offered on the mobile app version of the G Suite tool. The redesigned calendar layout will automatically adjusts to better fit the size of your screen. Most of the other features coming with the web redesign will be helpful for people using Calendar within wider organizations. The handiest of these will now allow you to check out multiple users' calendars side by side for a given day, in order to see how everyone's schedule lines up. Calendar Invites now allow to add formatting and hyperlinks directly into the description field, and G Suite administrators will be able to include more details about conference rooms within an organization. So we may assume that Google Calendar gets more business-ready in comparison to CalenGoo
2017 - Alexa now works with G Suite calendar to strike back at CalenGoo
Amazon’s connected speakers and other Alexa-powered devices will now work with your G Suite calendar. Once enabled, users will be able to ask Alexa to give them an overview of their day or make changes and other additions to their calendar as needed, just by speaking. The change represents another step towards making Echo and other Alexa speakers more practical devices to have in the office, or for general business use. G Suite is not the first calendaring platform that Alexa supports. The company has offered Google Calendar integration since launch, and added support earlier this year for both Outlook Calendar (including Hotmail, MSN, and Live email accounts) as well as Office 365 Calendar, for those with Exchange Online mailboxes.
2006 - Google Calendar arrives. CalenGoo should better react
Today, Google Calendar went public, sporting an uncluttered interface and the potential for users to mash it up to their liking. Yahoo Calendar is the leading service in this space, but an open application programming interface (API) isn"t available - yet. The AJAX-based Google Calendar beta already works with XML and iCal standards. Not only can you create multiple calendars, you can also import them from Microsoft Outlook. Your own Google Calendar is private by default, but you can open it up for strangers or friends. Say your favorite art gallery, theater, or book club uses a compatible calendar service. You could instantly add their events within your personal Google Calendar so that you won"t miss the latest parties around town. This service is also designed to flag events within Gmail messages in case you"d like to ink them into your calendar. Color coding helps to keep things straight. You can export your schedule via RSS, then read the feeds from a third-party newsreader.
