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.
Apple has officially unveiled the new MobileMe Calendar that has been in beta since July. The newly revamped calendar features a new user interface similar to the calendar that appears on the iPad, and some new features that users of the MobileMe web interface will no doubt love.
Apple recently announced that the MobileMe Calendar component of me.com was about to get a beta facelift, and now we have some images to show off the new look, which borrows liberally from its cousin app on the iPad.
After a lengthy period of sitting idle, Apple appears to be giving MobileMe the love this year, first with a web-based Mail update (now available to all members) and a host of updates to their iOS apps, and now the web Calendar app is getting some much-needed love as well.
Despite four generations of updates, the iPhone’s built-in Calendar app leaves a lot to be desired. If you tend to favor Google Calendar anyway, the creators of ReaddleDocs have a new solution for you: Calendars.
Since its inception, Google has become the mover and shaker of the
Internet world, bringing wonderful, utilitarian goodies in the form of
web applications and cloud services. After debuting Gmail in 2004,
Google then followed suit with projects like its interactive, totally

become larger than anyone could have conceived.
Every day, we wish iCal could do something that our Palm IIIx did in
1997. There’s a Palm calendar app called DateBk, and it has a feature
called Floating Events. The idea is that incomplete to-do items would
“float” to the next day, so if you forgot to do something, it wouldn’t
get left behind on your calendar as the days marched on. The fact that
BusyMac’s BusyCal brings that crucial feature to our calendar makes us
do a little happy dance, and that’s only scratching the surface of this
We’re calendar geeks. Without iCal, we’d be completely lost. But that
doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. For one, we often wish
there was a quick way to view dates on the calendar without having to
switch over to iCal and break the flow of what we’re currently working
on. A simple day/date display in iCal would come in handy for
everything from scheduling deadlines to planning weekend trips with
friends. DateLine is a donationware application that adds a lightweight
calendar display to your Desktop and also gives you one-click access to
