Google Calendar Finally Launches for the iPad

For the folks out there who have had the Google Calendar app installed on their iPhone for quite some time, but have been waiting impatiently for an iPad version, the wait is finally over.

What has felt like an oversight for way too long has finally been fixed. Google announced today that Google Calendar for iPad is now (finally) available to download. The announcement itself is short and sweet, not taking up much space, and details only a few key features:

  • Find a time and book a room. Get everyone together faster for meetings. With smart scheduling, Calendar suggests meeting times and available rooms based on your team’s availability and room preferences.
  • Set Goals and achieve them. Add a goal and Calendar will intelligently schedule time for it so you can stick to it.
  • Plus, you can search your Calendar easily from the iPad home screen with Spotlight Search.

Google does say that more features are on the way, at least, but doesn’t say when they will see the light of day. They do confirm a Today Widget is being developed, too, which will let users “easily see your upcoming events in the Notification Center and on the lock screen.”
