The official Google Calendar app for Android, which was until now exclusive to select Android devices like Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, is now available for all Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3+) or Android 4.1 (Jellybean).
Calendar app makes it easy to manage all your calendars in one place, including those from Google accounts and other calendars synced to Android device.
"Beyond supporting the basics such as creating, editing, deleting events and responding to invitations, the new Calendar app has following extra features that help you manage your time and communication more easily," Google posted.
In addition, to the features listed below, Google also expanded the sync period "so you can review past events from up to one year ago directly on your device," informs Google.
- "Snooze events directly from a notification if you're not quite ready and want to be reminded later.
- Use predefined messages to send quick "I'll be late" updates to your event participants directly from the notifications or the event itself (of course, you can always write your own).
- Pinch to zoom in and out of a day.
- Set a home time zone to help you manage your time better when traveling," Google informed.
Get the Google Calendar app on Google Play.
In other Google news, If you're switching to Gmail from another email provider like Yahoo!, Hotmail, or AOL, Gmail has a handy tool to help you move over your old emails and contacts.
This tool is now accessible to domains ( Google Apps, Google Apps for Business, Government, and Education) users as well.
"This import feature is not a Google Apps core service and is not supported under the Google Apps Terms of Service," Google posted.
Also, the Gmail Input Tools is intended to release to domains on October 23th: "Gmail now has more than 100 virtual keyboards, transliteration and IMEs--collectively called input tools. These tools allow users to type in the language and keyboard layout that they're accustomed to."
I remember writing research papers as a student and being frustrated at the tedium of formatting citations according to the strictures of the Modern Language Association.
Google Scholar simplifyes the process of formatting citations according to the strictures of the Modern Language Association -- by adding a ability that "let you copy-and-paste formatted citations from search results."
To copy a formatted citation, click on the "Cite" link below a search result and select from the available citation styles (currently MLA, APA, or Chicago). "You can also use one of the import links to import the citation into BibTeX or another bibliography manager," Google adds.
