Mobile Google Calendar

Google Calendar has some new features:

* if you're in the US, you can access your calendar from your mobile phone. You just have to send a SMS to 48368 (GVENT) with the text "next" to see the upcoming events. Send "day" to get all of your scheduled events for the present day and "nday" to get all of your events for the following day. You can even create events, just send the details in a format similar to this: "Go to dinner at Chef Cafe tomorrow at 9pm".

* Google Calendar has support for Verizon carrier.

* integration with Gmail for your domain, Google's hosted mail service.

The next features will be synchronizing with mobile phones and PDAs.


  1. it would be nice to have a taskmanager in calender and be able to add it to your google homepage. this, in combination with being able to sync it all with your PDA or mobile would make outlook so useless i would just uninstall it completely.

  2. Ali Mills built an application front end to google calendar, you can check it out here:

  3. Very interesting... But Google needs to add direct mobile synchronization feature to significantly increase user-base and user-stickiness!
