Google calendar for mobiles

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Google has just announced mobile support for Google Calendar. Previously, it was possible to sync your google calendars to your mobile calendar using goosync. However, based on my own experience this is rather shaky, and to sync several calendars you have to use the “pro” service, which costs about 30 euro per year (and which doesn’t work very well for me).

The new google service allows you to see (all) your google calendars through the mobile’s web browser. Just point your mobile web browser to http://calendar.google.com/ and log in using your regular google account.

In my own reserach, I have found that one of the highers prioritized mobile services for students is mobile access to schedules for their courses, and using this service makes that easy.
