If you own a device running either Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, we have good news for you. Google recently released the official Google Calendar app, which has the ability to sync all of your calendars.
Google announced that its Calendar app is now available on Google Play via its official Android blog. Previously, the app was only available to devices running the vanilla version of Android such as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The app allows users to enjoy the usual features. It also comes with the ability to pinch to zoon on a certain day. You can also respond to a notification to update a particular event with customisable messages. You can respond by saying, “I’ll be late again”, or “I’ll be there in a sec”. From within notifications, you can also snooze an event.
If you’re constantly traveling, you’ll be happy to know that you can set up a home time zone, which helps you manage your time when travelling. A sync period allows you to review a year’s worth of events.
If you’re an avid Google fan, the native calendar app on Android handsets just won’t do. It’s likely that you’ll be more interested in the official Google Calendar app or other official Google apps such as Google+ or Gmail. If you own an HTC device, beware. There are a number of issues that will affect the app if installed on an HTC device. For the full list of issues on HTC devices , click here.
