Calendar G for Mac integrates with Google Calendar, allowing you to keep track of your appointments as well as enter new ones from your Mac desktop, without having to use a Web browser. A well-designed app, it comes with a nice interface and polished features, making it an attractive solution for Google Calendar users that own a Mac computer. If you're one of them, you will want to try this calendar app.

To use Calendar G, you have to enter your Gmail account information. We needed a bit of time to get used to the black background with light-colored text that the app uses, but we liked that we could change the field colors in the Settings menu. Adding new entries to the calendar is quick and easy, as is entering information for each of them and choosing the date when they begin, the start and end time, and so on. Convenient buttons let you create new appointments or overwrite existing ones with ease. As to the monthly and daily calendars, they are easy to view and look well. What we really liked about this app is the quick syncing with Google Calendar, as well as the support for mobile devices. The app does feature advertisements, but you can remove these by purchasing an Address Key.

If you want to be able to check and update entries in your Google Calendar without using your Web browser, Calendar G is certainly for you. Its accessible interface and seamless integration with one of Google's most popular products make it worthwhile.

Developer's Description

Calendar G saves users from need of opening a browser and handling confusing menus. In the last decade Google Calendar became one of the personal necessities not only in the company but also in the personal life. This movement is being accelerated by the spread of smartphone these days. Reflecting such circumstance, there is a growing body of request "More Handy" "More Quick". Calendar G might have the answer for these demands. Calendar G's first window is quite simple. There are only five textfields. They are Date, Beginning time, Ending time, Title and Description. It's enough for users who input one's schedules. There is a area to input the Google Calendar's reminders under the textfields. The Google Calendar's reminder sends Email/SMS or pop-ups a dialog box to notify the user ahead of time. Placing this area in the first window is one of the Calendar G's unique features.

Clicking the button "View" on the right, a side window comes up. The calendar-view and the list-view can be selected in this side window. The existing events can be updated or deleted using this side window. As an aside, the appearance of the side window is a kind of door action. Users may get a brief glimpse of developer's obsessiveness. Calendar G is an application created with Adobe AIR known as an animation software. Calendar G seems to inherit characteristics from Adobe's tool in its graphical design and motions. In general the installation of AIR application need the AIR runtime as a plug-in software. But using the Express Install provided at the Egg-On-Egg Corporation's web site, Calendar G can be installed seamlessly without troublesome tasks.
