Paul Stone found has some screenshots which show that its not a matter of if, but when Google Calendar launches. I have been trying to nail down the specifics of the calendar for last 15 days, and have found some sketchy details.
- It has a user interface quite similar to that of GMail and Google Reader. It is said to be a blue page divided into a grid.
- You will be able to double click on a date and add an event. You can also make the appointment public.
- There will be some sort of ability to sync with Outlook and possibly with iCal. Can sink with outlook/iCal and many more.
- It will most likely be able to send SMS alerts.
Seems like it is an AJAX twist on a traditional calendar. I am sure there are some nifty tricks, but hard to pin down details because Google has strict non disclosure policies for its beta testers. (That doesn’t mean I am going to stop trying.)
