Google eases Calendar use
While Google's Calendar application may prove useful on its own, Google Mac News is reminding Mac users that Google Notifier is designed to make using the company's calendar more convenient. Google Notifier tracks Gmail accounts as well as upcoming Calendar events, flashing a window when new messages or event warnings appear with an accompanying sound effect. Users can change the sound within Notifier, and can opt to use Growl with its own Notifier plug-in. The Notifier software is not the only solution, however, as Google Tutor mentions that users can sync Google Calendar directly with Apple's iCal using the program's Subscribe option. Calendar offers private iCal links for each schedule that are usable to download Web updates automatically.
