Official Google Calendar for iOS Released

Google’s redesigned Calendar app has finally landed on iPhone and iPad marking it the first time the full fledged Google Calendar app’s release on iOS platform.

Google Calendar could be added to the default Calendar application of iOS. In addition to that, a number of third-party apps were available to give users a Google Calendar experience as close as possible. However, Google officially announced last fall that its revamped Calendar app matching the material design philosophy would be heading to iOS, and it just did.

Google in its official blog post announcing Google Calendar for iPhone said that all the features that Android users enjoy are now available on the iOS counterpart. That includes automatic addition of events based on Gmail conversation, Assists that suggest user create events without any fuss, and see all of upcoming events in what Google calls Schedule View.

In addition to all that, Google Calendar, upon installation on iOS devices, can work with all the calendar events that you have already set up on your phone or tablet.

If you’ve been using Google Calendar on the web and on iOS via the default Calendar app, now is the good time to taste the official Google Calendar app on iOS. If you’re using a calendar app other than Google, it is still worth a shot given the design and user interface improvement. After all, nobody said Material Design failed to impress them so far!
