Editors' Review

Google Calendar Client for Windows displays the events of all Google Calendars you have subscribed to. Since it uses publicly shared calendars, it doesn't require your Google credentials in order to operate, thus protecting your privacy.

Pros

Offline support: Google Calendar Client for Windows has the ability to download all calendar events within a given range and save them on your PC. Doing so will ensure that you have access to your agenda, even when you don't have an Internet connection.

QR codes and event reminders: Since version 2.7 of the application, every reminder has an associated QR code, which can be scanned as a quick way to get the event details on your phone. Another basic but important feature is the ability to enable event notifications and set how much time before the event to receive them.

Private: Rather than requesting your Google credentials, Google Calendar Client for Windows requires only a link to a shared calendar. This not only protects your privacy, but also makes the app much more straightforward.

Cons

No advanced notification features: Unlike smartphones that can calculate travel times and take weather and traffic conditions into account, this application is limited to sending you a reminder at a predetermined time with no self-correcting options.

Bottom Line

If you use Google Calendar on a regular basis, you will surely appreciate this tiny app that shows your schedule with the click of a button wherever you are in your computer.

"Nice little app withsome UI problems and crashes"

March 17, 2009  |  By raisedbyturtles

 |  Version: Google Calendar Windows Client beta

Pros

First off, it doesn't install anything on your system, change any registry settings or otherwise muck around with your computer. That's key for me.

Lightweight client that sits in the system tray when the browser is closed

Cons

- User interface is funky.
- No popup reminders as far as I can tell.
- stability issues (on Vista, of course)

Summary

So the main thing I want - popup reminders without having to have my broswer open, doesn't seem to be available with this application. It's an open source app at Google Code, so I guess if I want that to happen, it's up to me! No complaints.

I had a number of crashes quite quickly. The first time I open a calendar after I change the number of days to look ahead, it crashes (repeated a few times). After that, no issues.

And then there's the UI. It's simple, but I found it confusing. You have an existing calendar, for example and you want to change the settings. You "clone" the entry and then you choose "Close and save" and nothing saves. That's because you need to "Add" the clone entry, delete the original, and THEN close and save.
