Google Calendar has gone live, CNET has the story, and TechCrunch has a quick review. I’ve been playing around with it some tonight and I’m impressed so far. Importing from Outlook is handy for me compared to 30Boxes, but I’d like an export to Outlook as well.
They’ve done some nice stuff with sharing, creating multiple calendars, and allowing for RSS subscriptions and for others to view your calendar as a web page. It’s good to see Google be very open with this product. The integration with Gmail could be the highlight for heavy Gmail users.
In true Google style you can also search all public calendars which an interesting kind of sharing and voyeurism, but it’d also be handy to search your friend’s calendars for a specific event.
Unfortunately for 30Boxes, which I’ve enjoyed thus far, Google Calendar is probably far enough ahead that I switch over to using it. At least giving it a serious shot….
