We realize that more people in the world have mobile phones than have computers, and people take their cell phones with them everywhere. Since one of our main goals on the Calendar team is to make planning your events and maintaining your schedule as easy as possible, starting today, you can access your Google Calendar account from your cell phone!
I am actually not using Google calendar. I just love the builtin calendar of my phone. However, just what Janet pointed, it is the best thing to use a calendar which can be shared hassle-free to your mates. How about sharing the calendar through outlook?
To share calendars via Outlook, however, you must use Microsoft Exchange Server. In addition to calendar sharing, Exchange Server provides synching capability to your mobile phone. The downside for most small businesses is that Microsoft Exchange Server can be costly to setup and support.
Let’s consider Cyndy‘s account why she loves so much the Google calendar:
Why do I love Google Calendar so much? It’s very simple: I have a large family. Between my writing commitments, my husband’s schedule, and life with four children, things can get crazy around here. I could try to do it all on paper, but I found that my bag ended up filled with appointment cards and Post-Its, and I was late or missed everything. Google Calendar allows me to give each person their own color-coded calendar I can track on one screen visually, updating on the fly as schedules change, and seeing instantly when I have a scheduling conflict between two family members.
Is it free? Of course, you can use this Google feature for free but then you’ll be charged by your provider based on their rates. After all you’re using here your mobile phones internet.
