If you prefer Google Calendar to Apple’s iCal (and their MobileMe cloud syncing solution), developer Readdle has you covered with an updated version of their slick Calendars app, bringing Google Tasks and universal compatibility to the table.
Readdle, the developer of iOS productivity apps such as ReaddleDocs and PDF Expert, has announced Calendars 2.0, a significant update to their Google-loving app for tracking events and information on the search giant’s online calendar.
Headlining the features of Calendars 2.0 is new full integration with Google Tasks. Users can now create, delete and modify tasks from within the app, with all edits being synchronized back to their Google account immediately.
iPad users will also appreciate Calendars 2.0, which now sports universal compatibility so the same app works great on either the iPhone/iPod touch or on Apple’s tablet device. The new version features a redesigned user interface for the iPad which takes advantage of the bigger screen size to display more information on a single screen.
If you like to see your week at a glance, Calendars 2.0 offers a complete week-long schedule on the iPad, shown on one screen in the same way that Google Calendar does, enabling users to quickly find free time in their schedule and plan new events accordingly.
Even if you already use the built-in calendar on your iOS device, Calendars 2.0 also has you covered. On devices with iOS 4.0 or later, the app is capable of view calendars synced via iTunes (including the Birthday calendar tied to your Address Book). At the moment these events are read-only, but a forthcoming update will add the ability to edit those events as well.
Calendars 2.0 is available now on the App Store for $6.99 and as always, it’s a free update for existing users. Thanks to its new universal abilities, the app is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
