Calgoo iCal synching
Calgoo on Wednesday announced its cross-platform calendar sharing programs are now compatible with Apple's iCal application. The announcement affects Calgoo Hub, Calgoo Connect, and Calgoo Calendar, and will allow users to synchronize their iCal calendars with users of Google, Outlook, Sunbird, as well as a host of other cross-platform mail clients. Calgoo Connect and Calendar Pro annual subscriptions start at $30, with several licensing options available.
Calgoo states that the service uses WebDAV to synchronize iCal with Calgoo Connect and Hub, as well as enabling support for Outlook 2007 and Sunbird. The company also uses a proprietary binary protocol. Both methods lack encryption, but are reportedly not easy to compromise.
